Mayim Bialik, who nearly lost her right hand thumb in a car accident two weeks ago, told “Access Hollywood” in an interview that immediately following the accident, her first instinct was to get out of the car, fearing it would explode. “Many Denzel Washington films” ran through her head, she said. Bialik also thought about her family, saying to herself, “I’m a mom, this is not happening. I have kids waiting for me. It’s my son’s birthday—and it was. That was my first thought.”

The Emmy-nominated “Big Bang Theory” star declined to use pain killers, instead opting for methods she used while giving birth that ”really reaffirmed my faith in pain with a purpose and the meditative properties, the ability to lower your blood pressure, which women do in labor. It absolutely is what I used to get me through all stages of this.”

The accident did not affect the filming of the sixth season of “Big Bang Theory,” as Bialik’s hand is being hidden from the camera during the shooting.
