The former E.R. star was taken to hospital for emergency treatment to a horrifying wound after falling over and biting through her bottom lip.
She had collapsed after suffering a dizzy spell following an incident earlier in the day when she hit her head on a lamppost.
Kingston tells U.K. chat show host Graham Norton, "I was jetlagged, working with comedians and I walked into a lamppost. It was a comedy moment, but I was so embarrassed because I thought I would be the butt of their jokes so I pretended I was fine and that night I started to feel really woozy and I fell flat on my face.
"I bit through my lower lip and knocked out my front teeth. It was really awful. I was doubly concussed and had to go straight to ER."
The Legally Blonde actress was struck by a vehicle driven by an 84-year-old woman as she went for a run in Santa Monica, California in September.
She escaped serious injury and shrugged the incident off as a minor mishap - but now she's revealed she landed on her head after being knocked down, and has been left with a scar on her forehead which she covers up with a new hairstyle.
Witherspoon tells U.K. chat show host Graham Norton, "I was jogging and I got hit by a car, it's not funny at all. They said I am very hard headed because I landed right on my head and I have a scar, hence my new hairdo. I don't remember much about it but miraculously and thank God I am fine."
The Schindler's List star has enjoyed roles in a number of high-octane blockbusters in recent years, including The A-Team, Taken, Clash of the Titans and his latest film, The Grey.
The Oscar-nominated actor takes pride in his bravery and insists on refusing a body double for many onscreen stunts - but he admits age is catching up with him and he'll soon have to turn down meaty, all-action roles.
He tells U.K. talk show host Graham Norton, "I love doing my own stunts but it's hard. I am turning 60 this year and it's getting harder... The knees are starting to play up."
The actor began his career onstage with the Royal Shakespeare Company in the 1960s but moved into TV in the 1980s with his role in legendary sci-fi show Star Trek.
Although he also enjoyed parts in the X-Men movie franchise, Stewart is still a familiar face in the West End and on Broadway - but now he's planning a lengthy break from the theatre to return to Hollywood.
Sir Patrick tells U.K. talk show host Graham Norton, "I have just done seven years of theatre and it's been the best seven years of my life. We filmed two of the stage productions I was in and I so enjoyed being in front of a camera again.
"I felt it would be a good time to see if I could kick-start a film career. I never really had a film career, I had a franchise career, so I've made a decision to take 18 months off and see what happens."
While Steven Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan helped define the style of a modern day war film it was his HBO mini-series Band of Brothers that truly captured the World War II experience. The multi-part saga dealt with every nook and cranny of the US military's involvement in the war from large scale battles to intimate character details. The new movie Red Tails developed and produced by Spielberg's Indiana Jones collaborator and Star Wars mastermind George Lucas attempts to cover the same ground for the sprawling tale of the Tuskegee Airmen—albeit in a two hour compressed form. The result is a messy handling of a powerful story of heroism. The good intentions make it on to the screen...but the drama never gets off the runway.
Red Tails assembles a talented cast of young actors to portray the brave men of the 332nd Fighter Group a faction of the Tuskegee Airmen. The ensemble is reduced to a jumble of simplistic one-note characterizations: Easy (Nate Parker) the do-gooder with a dark past; Lightning (David Oyelowo) the suave rebel who never listens to orders; Junior (Tristan Wilds) the fresh-faced newbie ready for a good fight; and the rest a nameless group of underwritten yes men all with just enough backstory to make you interested but never satisfied. Thankfully with the little material they have to work with the gentlemen excel. Rapper-turned-actor Ne-Yo is a standout as the quick-witted Smokey overshadowing vets Terrence Howard and Cuba Gooding Jr. (who spends most of the movie chomping on a corn cob pipe and grinning).
With the plethora of characters comes too many plot threads and Red Tails stuffs its runtime with everything from epic flyboy dog fights romantic interludes (Lightning finds himself infatuated with a local Italian woman) office politics alcoholism and even a POW camp escape. If there was a true lead character the movie may have succeeded in stringing the events together in a coherent narrative but instead Red Tails is choppy and uneven. The aerial battles for all their CG special effects nastiness are incredibly exhilarating but when the movie's not tackling the intensity of a battle (which it does often) it comes to a near halt. That mostly comes down to history standing in the way—the crux of the story focuses on how segregation caused the military's higher ups to avoid utilizing the Red Tails in true battle. Meaning there's a lot of talk on how the team should be fighting as opposed to actually doing it.Director Anthony Hemingway tries to do this important historical milestone justice but the execution flies too low even under made-for-TV movie standards. Red Tails is a dull history lesson occasionally spruced up with Lucas' eye for action. The charisma of the the main set of actors goes a long way in keeping the film tolerable but they can't fill the gaping hole where the emotional hook belongs. This is a movie about heroes yet not once are the filmmakers able to pull off a moment that feels remotely brave. Which is unfortunate—as it's a story of the utmost importance.
Madonna is never one to hold back on voicing her opinions, especially when it comes to hydrangeas. In other words, she's learned to expresses herself. But her vocal antics don't stop at loathing flowers and now it seems Lady Gaga is her next target. If you recall, there was a bit of a controversy last year regarding the similarities between Gaga's "Born This Way" and Madonna's classic hit, "Express Yourself." Some started calling Gaga's song a knock-off, accusing her of copying Madonna's work (rumors she immediately refuted). However, we never heard Madonna's view on the matter...until now.
The legendary singer addressed the similarities between the two songs (somewhat callously) in a new interview with Newsweek, saying, "I thought, this is a wonderful way to redo my song. I mean, I recognized the chord changes. I thought it was . . . interesting." Now that statement can be read in one of two ways: she's genuinely trying to give Gaga a compliment while innocently admitting that the songs are somewhat similar, or she's purposefully trying to undermine Lady Gaga's songwriting skills and achievements by implying that she copied her hit song. It's really hard to tell since the comments seem polite and essentially complimentary, but knowing Madonna's confrontational nature I'm willing to bet there's an underlying meaning in there somewhere.
In another recent interview on the BBC's Graham Norton Show, Madonna additionally mentioned Gaga, saying, "When I first saw her I was really impressed by her and she was cool," adding, "She did remind me of me back in the day." Another compliment or a different way of showing how much she believes Gaga mimics her? You never know with Madonna. Personally, I think it's ridiculous since Gaga's way above stealing content from another artist, although I do have to give Madonna props for dominating in the backhanded compliment category. I guess she was just born that way.

The Material Girl had her doubts about making her directorial debut with the story of American divorcee Wallis Simpson and British monarch King Edward VIII, who gave up the throne for their romance.
The pop queen struggled to secure the book rights for the project and almost gave up on her dream.
She tells U.K. talk show host Graham Norton, "I had gone through lots of trials and tribulations to (obtain) the rights to a book about her and couldn't get that.
"I thought, 'What am I doing here, writing a story about somebody... Are the royal family going to hate my guts for telling this story?'"
But the frustrated star decided to go forward with the film after a seeing Simpson's maiden name on a vehicle parked outside her home.
She recalls, "The doorbell rang and I answered it in my pyjamas, as I do. There was nobody there but there was a removal van and it said Montague Removal. That was her maiden name and I thought, 'Right, that's a sign.'"
The 300 star performed a reading at his sibling's marriage ceremony and he accidentally diverted the attention away from the bride by revealing all.
He tells U.K. talk show host Graham Norton, "I wore a kilt in my sister's wedding in Paisley, Scotland and I had to go up and do a reading and my mother and family were in the front row.
"As you know in Scotland there's a certain rule to wear a kilt so I'm sitting like this (legs open) and everyone's leaning forward and my mum's looking at me and she's doing this (puts hands together) and I think she's telling me to pray... and then I realise everyone is staring right (at my crotch). So I (cross my legs)... It's always a disaster."
The 300 star was shooting Of Men And Mavericks in northern California when a large wave brought him crashing down, leaving him struggling to keep his head above the water.
Butler was taken to Stanford University Medical Center, but he had to be convinced by movie bosses to seek medical assistance.
He tells U.K. talk show host Graham Norton, "I was going to go back that day. I was actually in the ambulance and wanted to go back, which was a little crazy, but it's pretty addictive.
"This was maybe one of the few times that the reports were not exaggerated. It was a pretty close call... (The waves) just took me and I couldn't get up. It was pretty hairy."
But the incident helped Butler improve the portrayal of his character, surf enthusiast Rick 'Frosty' Hesson.
He adds, "In the movie, I put in a scene about a 'two wave hold down,' when you are down for so long that the next wave comes over before you get back up, and that's what happened to me. They finally grabbed me just as another huge wave was coming in. It was just like a movie! In fact, everything I talked about happening in the movie happened to me."
The full interview with Butler is set to air in the U.K. on Friday night (06Jan12).
