AMERICAN PIE star Tara Reid has finally spoken out about her embarrassing red carpet boob flash - and she insists she still doesn't know how it happened.

Reid stepped onto the red carpet outside of SEAN 'P DIDDY' COMBS' 35th birthday bash in New York on 4 November (04) and posed for photographers, showing off her Christian Dior gown.

But she was soon left red-faced, when one of her straps slipped off her shoulder, accidentally exposing her breast as cameras rabidly clicked away.

The images were quickly transmitted around the world.

The actress tells American TV show ACCESS HOLLYWOOD, "I swear to you, I had no idea that had happened.

"I had a fur coat on, so when I took the coat off, the coat was heavy, and the strap came out with the coat. They were like,'Tara, let me see the dress, let me see the dress.'

"I didn't see the strap fall down, so I'm smiling like an idiot... Then, when someone came up to me, I was like, 'Oh, I'm so embarrassed!'

"I just hated that the paparazzi were high-fiving each other and laughing. It was so cruel. But it happened and... you move on."
