By now, we’re sure you’ve heard about Selma Blair’s airplane outburst, and yesterday she issued an apology, one that was completely honest and much appreciated by fans.
“I made a big mistake yesterday. After a lovely trip with my son and his dad, I mixed alcohol with medication, and that caused me to black out and led me to say and do things that I deeply regret,” Blair’s statement read. She then went on to apologize to the passengers and crew on the plane and explained that she was filled with shame over this incident.
Blair’s behavior was apparently extremely uncharacteristic of her, with a source revealing as much to People magazine.
“This is truly out of character,” a source close to Blair told the publication. “She’s a devoted mom with a sharp sense of humor. She’s super outgoing, smart and funny — a put-together person. She’s also a proud mom, and she loves talking about her kid.”
Those who have worked with Blair also feel that she is usually incredibly professional and an all-round nice person, with a source in the industry telling the publication that she’s never been one for drama.
“She wasn’t one to ruffle feathers or cause problems on set,” the source says. “She would show up, work hard, and was always very pleasant to be around.”
The source added, “She loves being a mom. You can tell how important her son is to her.”
We love that Selma Blair was honest enough to tell the public what really happened instead of making excuses for her behavior, and we’re showing our support for her during this time.
