Jennifer Lawrence Details Terrifying Emergency Plane Landing in 2017: 'We Were All Just Going to Die'

Jennifer Lawrence is looking back at the terrifying moment her plane made an emergency landing in 2017.

During an interview with Vanity Fair for their latest cover story, the 31-year-old Oscar-winning actress recounted taking a private plane from her native home in Kentucky to New York City in 2017, when the plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Buffalo.

According to the outlet, one of the plane’s two engines had failed, meaning the landing had to be made with just one.

“My skeleton was all that was left in the seat,” Jennifer said. “We were all just going to die. I started leaving little mental voicemails to my family, you know, ‘I’ve had a great life, I’m sorry.’”

She continued, “I just felt guilty. Everybody was going to be so bummed. And, oh, God, Pippi [her dog] was on my lap, that was the worst part. Here’s this little thing who didn’t ask to be a part of any of this.”

Jennifer recalled seeing the ambulances and firetrucks arrive on the runway before, at which point she “started praying.”

“Not to the specific God I grew up with, because he was terrifying and a very judgmental guy,” she said. “But I thought, Oh my God, maybe we’ll survive this? I’ll be a burn victim, this will be painful but maybe we’ll live.”

She quipped, “‘Please, Lord Jesus, let me keep my hair. Wrap me in your hair-loving arms. Please don’t let me go bald.’”

In the same interview, Jennifer opened up about expecting her first child with husband Cooke Marony, adding that she wasn’t comfortable discussing her baby with the press.

“If I was at a dinner party, and somebody was like, ‘Oh, my God, you’re expecting a baby,’ I wouldn’t be like, ‘God, I can’t talk about that. Get away from me, you psycho!’ But every instinct in my body wants to protect their privacy for the rest of their lives, as much as I can,” she explained.

“I don’t want anyone to feel welcome into their existence,” she continued. “And I feel like that just starts with not including them in this part of my work.”

Earlier this week, Jennifer shared her thoughts on her Don’t Look Up co-star Leonardo DiCaprio earning more than her for the movie.
