Playing Selma Blair Opens Up About 'Frightening' Plane Incident: 'I Had a Total Psychotic Blackout'

Selma Blair doesn't plan to make the same mistake twice.

The Hellboy star opened up on Wednesday's The Talk about her scary mid-flight incident in June that resulted in her being removed from a plane.

Blair, 44, who apologized for what happened this summer, did not mince words about the incident, calling it "a total psychotic episode" resulting from "a very bad choice."

"I am someone that should never drink and I rarely do and I don't drink anymore, but I did," she shared. "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. It was something completely different."

"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 added. "My son was with his father and he had slept through it. I knew he was going to sleep. He had headphones on and that's why I took this pill."

Still, Blair acknowledges it was a "bad choice all around," adding that she would "totally own it, it will not happen again."

Thankfully, the actress is able to have some humility about the incident now, joking to the hosts that she refused champagne at a recent party by telling the host, "Google me."

"I keep it alive in me, with me, every day," she explained. "I forgive myself, but I keep it alive like things can go really wrong and humiliating."

After the incident, the actress thanked her fans for their forgiveness, writing on Instagram, "A sincere thank you to all those who sent me the spirit of loving and forgiveness."
