Brooke Shields crashes car into her own house




Foot work not all it should have been

Brooke Shields crashed her car into her house when her shoe got stuck on the accelerator.

The Blue Lagoon star was driving home from shooting her new TV show Lipstick Jungle when her high-heeled shoe became wedged under the accelerator, causing her car to career into the wall.

Brooke revealed to US TV show Extra: "I was wearing these fabulous kick-a** platform patent leather heels. I had been at a meeting with the team at Lipstick Jungle and I was all sexed out.

"I slowed down to what I thought was a proper speed. I went to go put my foot on the brake, and I couldn't get my foot off the gas because the heel was completely wedged under.

"I slammed on what I thought was the brake, and it actually was the gas! I really did drive into my house and hit a pillar.

"I was fine. The pillar, of course, was removed - at which point I was like, we didn't really need that, that's just in the way."

The 42-year-old actress plays Wendy, one of New York's most powerful women, in new comedy/drama Lipstick Jungle, from the makers of Sex and the City.
