Reneé Rapp is opening up about her birthday tumble.

The actress and singer-songwriter, 24, appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Wednesday and revealed that she now has a “little scar” following the incident in New York City which took place on her 24th birthday.

“You just had your birthday,” Meyers, 50, began. “You were very honest about what happened, that you fell before you were drunk.”

The star explained of the "literally painful" Jan. 10 incident, “I was walking out and I was like, ‘It’s my f—————— birthday. I was like, ‘I don’t care, like I genuinely don’t care.' I’m about to go out to dinner with my friends and then go to a club with my friends. I’m taking this bottle of champagne with me, thank you."

Rapp — who plays Queen Bee Regina George in the new Mean Girls movie musical continued, "I had a new little purse, I was like, ‘Who’s coming for me right now? Nobody.' Mind you, I ended up coming for myself. But also, once I did it, I was like, ‘Hot.' "

She then added that the birthday tumble resulted in a "little scar" on her knee.

Meyers quipped, “there’s something nice about getting it out of the way early in a birthday night.”

Rapp added that she's taking the slip up as a sign that she’ll have “a great year,” before revealing that the photos of her falling over made her laugh so much.

“There were so many paparazzi outside,” the star laughed. “I was like, ‘Honestly, this is sick.’ I was like, ‘I think this is the coolest thing that’s ever happened to me.’”

“To be honest, I knew, I was like, ‘I look delicious right now,'" she added.

At the time of her fall, birthday girl Rapp was dressed in a stylish maroon leather top and matching skirt, with sheer tights and heeled boots.

“Fell before I was drunk happy birthday to me,” the Mean Girls star’s Instagram caption read at the time as she drank from a bottle of champagne while sitting in the backseat of a car.

“You are truly my child. happy birthday, bb,” her on-screen mom, Busy Philipps commented on the amusing post.

Meanwhile, the actress has recently opened up about being cast as legendary mean girl, Regina George, telling PEOPLE earlier this month that she found some redeeming qualities in the villainous character.

"I love that she says what she thinks. I really do," she said. "A lot of things this character says are not nice, but I think in order to be manipulative you have to be really intelligent."

"I don't think she's using her intelligence in the best, most productive way," Rapp continued. "However, something about that is hot to me. The mean girl is always hot to me."
