Selma Blair breaks down, says she’s ‘still crying’ after driving away from gas pump with nozzle still in
Selma Blair had a pretty rough Friday.
The “Mothers and Daughters” star took to Instagram to share a video of herself looking a little teary-eyed, and detailing her unlucky day in the caption. According to Blair, the series of misfortunes began after she drove away from a gas pump with the nozzle still in her fuel tank.
“Ok. So my head is still pounding,” she explained. “I drove away from a gas pump with the nozzle still in. I was chastised for wearing fur but that was weird ’cause it was teddy bear fur. And then I paid for the broken pump so that was over a 500 dollar tank of gas. Felt awful for being so absent minded.”
“Then I burst into tears in front of barista after ordering and made everyone uncomfortable,” she added. “Still crying. And I ran out of dog food. And excedrin. Can I have someone say this will pass? #waytogo #crapday #stillgrateful #makemelaughplease #timetoplaywithmylittleone.”
And judging by her latest pic, it appears that’s exactly what she did on Saturday! The 44-year-old actress shared a sweet photo with her 5-year-old son, Arthur, who accidentally woke her up by placing his feet on her face.
Back in June, the Southfield, Michigan, native suffered a much more serious incident during a flight, which resulted in her having to be removed from the plane.
Selma Blair says she’s “doing great” following her outburst on an airplane last June.
“It’s a regrettable thing,” Blair, 44, tells PEOPLE of last year’s incident when she was rushed to the hospital after being removed from an international flight while traveling with her son Arthur, now 5, and his father. “Mistakes happen.”
The incident was attributed to a combination of prescription drugs and alcohol. And while Blair takes full responsibility for the episode, the actress and her family have all moved on from the unfortunate event.
“I’m recovered, and my family is fully recovered,” she says, calling the plane incident an “embarrassing situation.”
“We’re doing great,” she continued. “I’m doing great, I’m taking care of myself. It was a one-time accident.”
On June 20, Blair was taken by stretcher off of her return flight from Cancun, Mexico to Los Angeles after having a meltdown on the plane that she later referred to as a “total psychotic blackout.”
“I am someone that should never drink and I rarely do — I don’t drink anymore — but I did,” she said on The Talk 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.”
“It was horrible and frightening,” she said on the talk show. “I had empathy for myself actually afterwards because it was actually so out of character for me, especially because I’m a mother.”
