Actress Minnie Driver had to rely on two Hollywood legends to come to the rescue when she experienced an embarrassing fashion disaster at the Oscars.

Arnold Schwarzenegger and TITANIC director James Cameron were left on their hands and knees after Driver's expensive bracelet exploded showering beads across the red carpet.

She says, "At the Oscars, I was wearing a bracelet that was made of lots of little red beads set with a green stone. During the ceremony, I was fiddling with it when it suddenly broke, scattering beads everywhere. Because they were the same colour as the carpet, I just couldn't see them. James Cameron and Arnold Schwarzenegger were both on their hands and knees trying to find them for me."
