"I don't recommend it, guys. It's okay, I learned a lesson, don't ever get on a dirt bike. I was in a wheely, lost control, whisky throttled, bike flew," recalled Dobrev. "Luckily, it didn't fall on me, which is what the doctor said would have been a lot worse. But when I landed, I landed on one leg, straight, and my knee just like snapped."

Dobrev said she was happy to get out of the house and have "an excuse to get dolled up."

She shared that her recovery process has included taking multiple leg selfies and cuddling her pets.

"Cuddle puddle is my life these days, it's just the puppies, and at home watching movies, physical therapy, eat, sleep, or pee is kind of the schedule," she said, revealing that she's also using the time to watch Fargo.

"Fargo is what I'm watching currently. I called my agents. I love it, so I'm so obsessed with the show, and I was like, 'You have to get me on this show.' And they're like,' That's from a decade ago, you're too late.' "

Dobrev also commented on an Instagram video she shared earlier in June showcasing her boyfriend, Shaun White, dancing in a white The Vampire Diaries sweater.

"You know, when you can't leave your bedroom, you either watch TV or you have live entertainment. That's my live entertainment," she quipped.
