Selma Blair Apologizes for Outburst Mid-Flight: 'I Made a Big Mistake'

Selma Blair is opening up about the in-flight incident that ended up with her being taken off a plane in a stretcher and hospitalized.

The 43-year-old actress was on her way back to Los Angeles after a Father’s Day vacation in Mexico with her son and his father.

“I made a big mistake yesterday. After a lovely trip with my son and his Dad, I mixed alcohol with medication, and that caused me to black out and led me to say and do things that I deeply regret,” Selma said in a statement to Vanity Fair. “My son was with his Dad asleep with his headphones on, so there is that saving grace. I take this very seriously, and I apologize to all of the passengers and crew that I disturbed and am thankful to all of the people who helped me in the aftermath. I am a flawed human being who makes mistakes and am filled with shame over this incident. I am truly very sorry.”

  • jane

    someone tell me, cuz i don’t take pills or alcohol. but wouldn’t it take longer than a flight for an effect like that to happen? or does mixing pills/alcohol mess you up that fast?

    WHY would somebody take Ambien on an airplane full of people baffles me

  • FerCat

    Yes, that’s why alcohol is a big no with medication.

  • plez

    Apology accepted but she should still get with a professional to see why she went to that subject matter.

  • Kyle Millert

    She sounds really genuine. Refreshing. Obviously this is a pretty normal occurrence, taking meds when flying. Hope she’s not having deeper troubles though.

  • Danae

    Being on a plane doesn’t help either. You notice the effects of alcohol way faster so when drugs are involved it works nearly immediately…

  • Rainbow3000

    let us appreciate that not many celebs who admit their wrong doings like Selma just did

  • Fond Des Blancs

    This pastor scared her, that is why she was acting crazy.
