Nina Dobrev has no feeling in her thumb after being bitten by a monkey last year.

The 'Vampire Diaries' actress was cuddling up to fluffy creature in Bali when it suddenly turned nasty and gouged a chunk out of her thumb with its gnashers.

Speaking to Jimmy Fallon on 'The Tonight Show' last night (05.08.14), she said: ''Everybody made a joke, because everyone was like, 'Oh, you're the vampire girl!' But then they were like, 'Oh, you're going to turn into a monkey now, girl.'

''There's a thing with all my friends, like, I'm the clutziest person on the planet. Anything bad that could potentially happen, always does.''

The 25-year-old star was even left with a scar from the animal attack and admits she is still feeling the effects ever since the cheeky creature locked down on the nerve running from her wrist.

She explained: ''Now, I have no feeling in my thumb. I can move it, obviously. But it's a nerve. He bit on a nerve and now I can't feel anything.''

However, the brunette beauty has managed to find a positive out of the painful situation because now she can't feel if people ''caress'' her thumb.

She joked: ''If I was at a party and we were talking and you, like, caress my thumb, I would have no idea.''
