Kate Beckinsale is a fashion victim … literally.

Last month, the 48-year-old ‘Underworld” actress was rushed to the hospital after suffering a back injury. She’s now revealed the source of her medical emergency was due to “putting on a pair of leggings."

"Having done eight or 900 action movies, I hurt myself putting on a pair of leggings in my hotel room," Beckinsale said during an appearance on “The Late Late Show with James Corden" alongside Foo Fighters singer Dave Grohl.

The incident occurred in Las Vegas where she was working on her new movie "Prisoner's Daughter."

"I was doing a very intense emotional drama and not running up walls or anything. I was in my hotel room putting on a pair of leggings, and it felt like a sort of guitar string snapped and everything was horrible. I mean, worse than having a baby bad, like bad," she added. "I couldn't walk, I couldn't lie down, I couldn't sit down. I couldn't do anything."

Unable to move, she called for help and medical personnel arrived to transport her to the hospital.

"Eventually an ambulance came and they sort of rolled out a sheet and picked me up in it like a sort of sausage, and put me on a gurney," she jokingly explained.

Despite the health scare, Beckinsale assured “I’m alright now” and even wore leggings for the interview.

Earlier this month, the “Total Recall” star appeared to further document her recuperation from the leggings mishap by sharing snaps flaunting her long legs in fishnet tights and combat boots.

“When Hot Topic meets Pottery Barn and it’s only Monday,” she cheekily captioned the photos.
