Selma Blair says her well-publicized breakdown on a plane in June was the result of a “total psychotic blackout.”
“I am someone who should never drink and I rarely do and I don’t drink anymore, but I did,” the 44-year-old “People v OJ Simpson” actress told Sharon Osbourne on Wednesday during an episode of “The Talk.”
“I was going through something. I had a glass of wine, someone gave me a pill that I thought was something that I had taken before, which I don’t take on a regular basis,” she said.
Back in June, the “Cruel Intentions” star was removed from a plane on a stretcher after she had an outburst mid-flight. Blair was on a Delta flight with her four-year-old son returning from Cancun, Mexico.
She said she made “a very bad choice and I had a total psychotic blackout.”
“It was horrible and frightening and I had empathy for myself actually afterwards because actually it was so out of character for me, especially now that I am a mother,” she said.
Other passengers on the flight told TMZ that Blair was seated in the first-class section with her son, Arthur Saint, drinking wine, when she started crying and talking about her fears regarding an anonymous man.
“He burns my private parts. He won’t let me eat or drink,” she reportedly said. “He beats me. He’s going to kill me.”
Blair publicly apologized to the crew and passengers for the incident and has said that she is a “flawed human being” and was “filled with shame.”
“Totally own it, will not happen again,” the actress said on “The Talk.”
