Back in June, actor Selma Blair had a scary incident on a plane returning from Cancun. A rare glass of wine mixed with a prescription pill she had never taken before led to what she called a "psychotic blackout."

The accidental cocktail lead to her allegedly telling the other passengers, "He burns my private parts. He won't let me eat or drink. He beats me. He's going to kill me." Blair was escorted off the plane on a stretcher when they landed at LAX.


Blair visited The Talk, which is like The View for people who hate New Yorkers, and talked about the experience with an open heart and a sense of humor.

“I am someone who should never drink and I rarely do and I don’t drink anymore, but I did,” she said on Wednesday, “I was going through something.”

“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,” Blair added.


Not only has she learned from the experience, she now has a line when someone insists she has a glass of champagne at a party: "Google me."
