Katie Holmes was almost blown up yesterday after having a little car trouble. The ‘actress’ was on the set of her new movie with Guillermo Del Toro, Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark, when a car she had been sitting in only seconds earlier caught fire.

During filming in Melbourne, Holmes was sitting in a BMW 5-series and as soon as she was a few steps away, the battery began to spark. It then caught fire and black smoke began pouring out from under the hood.

While Katie calmed her nerves, members of the special effects crew tended to the car.

An inside source spoke to the Mail Online, ‘Katie has filmed scenes since but it has made her think about her safety on set. She will be shooting the same scene at a later date.’

We’re betting they were actually more worried about the car than Tom Cruise’s beard.
