The 'Cruel Intentions' actress was left in tears after her "absent minded" mishap on Saturday (04.02.17), which came after she was slammed earlier in the week for wearing real fur, a claim she insists was untrue.

Alongside a tearful Boomerang post on Instagram, she wrote: "Ok. So my head is still pounding. I drove away from a gas pump with the nozzle still in. I was chastised for wearing fur but that was weird cause it was teddy bear fur. And then I paid for the broken pump so that was over a 500 dollar tank of gas . Felt awful for being so absent minded."

And the 44-year-old actress - who has five-year-old son Arthur with former partner Jason Bleick - admitted her day didn't improve after the disastrous trip to the gas station.

She continued: "Then I burst into tears in front of barista after ordering and made everyone uncomfortable. Still crying. And I ran out of dog food. And excedrin. Can I have someone say this will pass ? #waytogo #crapday #stillgrateful #makemelaughplease #timetoplaywithmylittleone (sic)"

Happily for the actress, she was later cheered up by her little boy.

She shared a picture of a selfie with Arthur's feet in her face and wrote: "De feet. that's what woke me. Beautiful #defeet #thankyou #kindwordsfeelgood (sic)"

And, a day on from her mishap, Selma has been able to laugh at herself.

She shared a picture of herself and her pals and wrote: "Thank you #christinaapplegate for bringing the grommets together again for a day that we all loved so much. @jillbenjamin1 @aliciafreedman @mattboren I gotta hand it to me, I cracked myself up. Serious tears of ridiculousness. (sic)"
