Selma Blair is apologizing for her recent outburst on a plane.
The "American Crime Story" actress issued a formal statement to Vanity Fair Tuesday explaining what went wrong on a flight from Cancun, Mexico, to Los Angeles on Monday that ended with her being taken to the hospital after an outburst.
"I made a big mistake yesterday," she said in the statement. "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."
She had been traveling with both her ex-boyfriend Jason Bleick and their 4-year-old son, Arthur.
Her statement continued, "My son was with his Dad asleep with his headphones on, so there is that saving grace. I take this very seriously, and I apologize to all of the passengers and crew that I disturbed and am thankful to all of the people who helped me in the aftermath. I am a flawed human being who makes mistakes and am filled with shame over this incident. I am truly very sorry."
She commented on Twitter as well, responding to a tweeted message of concern from actress Lori Petty:
And Bleick has posted a delightful picture of Arthur playing around outdoors, noting that it's a "new day."
