Los Angeles: 'Legally Blonde' star Reese Witherspoon has broken her little finger and it has had to be wrapped in a splint while it heals.

The 35-year-old actress was spotted with a bandaged little finger on her left hand as she left her office in Brentwood, after apparently breaking it, according to reports.

Witherspoon has had an unlucky year, after she badly twisted her ankle and had to wear a soft cast on her left foot in May. She was then struck while jogging in Santa Monica by an elderly lady driving her car at around 20 miles per hour in September.

While she sported a black eye after the incident, Witherspoon did not press charges against the 84-year-old driver and was reported to be resting comfortably at home shortly after the incident.

Accident prone Witherspoon has recently said that she has had to face up to a number of phobias, including an irrational fear of travel.

"I used to not ever travel. I've gotten over so many phobias. Five years ago, I was terrified to travel. I was scared to leave my kids. It's still not the best feeling," she said.
