Selma Blair says 'psychotic blackout' during plane outburst was a 'regrettable mistake'
Selma Blair reveals she is "fully recovered" after she had a "psychotic blackout" and had to be removed from an airplane last June.
The Cruel Intentions star (44) was carried off a plane on a stretcher when she had a bad reaction from mixing prescription medication with aclohol.
At the time, she caused concern among other passengers when she allegedly began yelling, “He burns my private parts. He won’t let me eat or drink. He beats me. He’s going to kill me.”
Blair said of the incident, which her five-year-old son Arthur was present for, was a "regrettable thing".
"I’m recovered, and my family is fully recovered. We’re doing great. I’m doing great, I’m taking care of myself. It was a one-time accident," she told People, adding it was an "embarrassing situation".
She said she no longer drinks alcohol and said the entire situation was "out of character" for her.
"I am someone that should never drink and I rarely do — I don’t drink anymore — but I did," she explained in October.
"I was going through something, I had a glass of wine, someone gave me a pill that I thought was something I had taken before, which I don’t take on a regular basis, it was something completely different. Very bad choice. And I had a total psychotic blackout."
"I had empathy for myself actually afterwards because it was actually so out of character for me, especially because I’m a mother."
