Playing Tara Reid Shares Shocking Photo of Her Face Looking Bruised: 'This Is What Bullying Looks Like'

Tara Reid sparked concern among her fans on Wednesday, when she shared an Instagram pic of herself appearing to be severely battered across the face.

The 40-year-old actress' face is marked with dark purple bruises in the snap, with her black mascara and eyeliner smudged. Fortunately, Reid's alarming look is actually just for her new anti-bullying movie, Worthless.

"Everyone be kind to each other," Reid writes in the caption. "This is what bullying looks like. #Worthless."

On Monday, Reid announced her new project.

"I'm so excited being back in New Jersey where I was born and raised," she tweeted. "I'm shooting my new movie Worthless. It's an anti-bullying movie."

In July, Reid's rep accused Jenny McCarthy of bullying the Sharknado actress after she walked out of McCarthy's Sirius XM radio show following a shade-filled, cringe-worthy interview. Reid took issue with McCarthy asking her about her appearance on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, as well as her past experiences with plastic surgery.

"Tara is a positive person who is against women tearing each other down," Reid's rep told ET in a statement at the time. "She was bullied on Jenny's [show] and felt ambushed. She came into the show with a positive spirit and was in a happy mood. It was very unfortunate how Jenny shifted the conversation for her personal gain when the whole focus should be on Sharknado 4."

ET sat down with Reid last February, when she candidly shared how negative comments about her body has affected her.

"I'm a human. If you cut me I bleed," Reid said. "I'm just like everyone else. I think that when people are famous, they don't realize that they are actually human."
