Renee Zellwegger escaped unharmed when she was involved in a minor traffic accident on Monday morning.
"A green Ford Explorer made an illegal U-turn in front of her silver Mercedes," Lt Tony Lee of the Beverly Hills Police Department explained. "She was very polite and sincere."
The other driver was pulling out of a parking space when he attempted the turn. There were no injuries, and the cars only suffered minor damage.
The actress exchanged details with him and "the incident will be handled between their insurance companies," added the officer.
Later she had her car towed from the scene and asked officers to call her a cab.
