Alison Brie recalls scary accident that nearly left her blind when she was 7

For Alison Brie, falling on the playground changed almost everything.

During the episode of May 11 HypochondriaActor podcast, the 37-year-old recalled having a freak accident at the age of 7 when she fell and hit the back of her head on concrete.

“I really was a little boy [and] I was running around the playground without looking, and I ran into another little girl in my class, who was about four times taller than me,” said the Community alum recalled, adding that her older sister lauren was there and helped her to the nurse’s office, “Thank God.”

“As I walk towards the nurse’s office, I just feel a little out of my mind,” she continued. “I clearly had a concussion. But I don’t know that at seven or eight, but I just feel out of my mind and hazy, but I can still see.”

Since the nurse was already out of the office for the day, Allison explained that the staff had found an alternative solution.
