Well it turns out it wasn't as near death as we originally thought!
The stunning actress made her way to the Sundance Film Festival where she opened up for the first time about her scary incident, and she says the whole thing was blown out of proportion!
"That was so overblown. It was nothing! It was caught in a riptide for a few minutes and I just needed my husband to know that I was having a little trouble getting in, and suddenly the internet reports I almost drowned!"
No wonder Anne and her nips were so quick to return to the water the very next day!
She also says that it was her hubby who helped her make it back to the sand and NOT a local surfer as it was previously reported, however, the whole toe-sucking part for some reason never came up in the interview!
Oh well! The only thing that really matters here is Anne is A-OK!!
