The star shared a photo of herself on Instagram and revealed to fans she'd had an accident and sprained her ankle.

"Nothing like reading a book about #fridakahlo when you sprain an ankle," she wrote. 

The actress - who starred in the movie, Frida - looked less than impressed to have been taken off her feet, but didn't explain what had happened. 

Her fans wished her well and wrote: "Oh no," and "get well soon," while another joked, "you tripped over your own beauty".

Two days before, Salma had shared a very different photo of herself as she wowed in a low-cut, purple swimsuit in front of an infinity pool and the ocean.

The Hollywood star teamed her beachwear with a pair of oversized sunglasses, and wore her long brunette hair down in its natural waves.

Salma has not shared the location of her getaway but was recently in Los Angeles to present an award at the Golden Globes
