"I drove up a mountain to go to a cabin and I thought, 'This will be totally safe because I won't see anybody,'" explained Thompson. "But I got into a car accident, so I did have a socially distanced interaction."
"I got hit by a big monster truck on the highway," she revealed, prompting Kimmel to ask if the vehicle that hit her was just a "huge truck" or, in fact, a real monster truck.
"Let's just put it this way. It is as monster as a truck could be, driving with a regular commercial license," Thompson replied, adding, "I got hit, but I'm safe, obviously and actually, the driver was very lovely in the end."
As an LA native, the "Thor: Ragnarok" star admitted that getting into a car accident wasn't anything new for her -- and fortunately the monster truck collision was a "pleasant one."
"I feel like I'm so used to car accidents because I was born and raised in Los Angeles, so it feels like accidents are my birthright," Thompson said. "I've had many of them. But this was a pleasant one."
"After this year, there's such gratitude [for] being alive, it was sort of the sweetest, loveliest accident of all of the ones I've had in a way," she said. "Also, it made total sense it's the only way to end  would be to get into a car accident."
Thompson -- who was promoting her new film "Sylvie's Love" -- went on to chat about heading to Australia soon to film "Thor: Love and Thunder" and shared what she plans to do first after she completes her 14-day quarantine.
