Denise Richards is ‘shaken up’ after her car was reportedly hit by a bullet after a road rage incident in South Los Angeles on Monday.
The 51-year-old actress and her husband Aaron Phypers were driving to Popsicle Studio in Los Angeles, where Richards is currently shooting a film.
“She was very shaken up and terrified, but she was a trooper and she went and filmed the whole day,” a source on the film set tells People. “She didn’t want to not show up to work.”

The source says Richards and her husband were in their Ford F-150 Shelby pick-up truck when Phypers noticed a gold and maroon van following them.
The van was tailing the couple closely and seemed agitated, according to the insider.
The van eventually caught up to the couple and the driver “went off of them” and claimed Phypers cut him off. Phypers apologised to the man and drove off despite the driver continuing to yell.
The source adds that Richards and Phypers were both “frantic” over the terrifying situation once they arrived on set for the shoot.

When the pair arrived at the studio, they realised their car had been shot at. People‘s source clarified Richards and Phypers were “really freaked out” by the situation and that the production team secured the scene shortly after.
Despite being shaken up by the incident, Richards reportedly pressed on with the one-day shoot.
“The production company made her feel safe but they didn’t file a police report,” the source added. “They think now that people were after the car itself because it’s worth a lot of money.”
