Tara Reid recently posted some shocking photos of her face covered in what looks like bruises, which caused a lot of concerns among her fans. Don’t worry too much, it’s not real!

The 40-year-old Wyckoff native is currently on the set of her new film Worthless, which focuses on the effects of bullying. She stopped by her home state of New Jersey to shoot some of the scenes.

“I’m so excited being back in New Jersey where I was born and raised,” Tara wrote on her personal Twitter account. “I’m shooting my new movie Worthless it’s an anti bullying movie.”

Being a celebrity in the public eye, the Sharknado star has had some experience with bullying and unwarranted negative comments. She even accused former Playboy model Jenny McCarthy of being an aggressor after appearing as a guest on her Sirius XM Radio show in July.

“I’m a human. If you cut me I bleed,” Tara told Entertainment Tonight. “I’m just like everyone else. I think that when people are famous, they don’t realize that they are actually human.”

An official release date for the film has yet to be announced, but we can’t wait to see the project. Welcome home Tara!
