Selma Blair is getting candid about her recent airplane breakdown that made headlines everywhere.
Back in June, the 44-year-old actress was rushed to the hospital after having a scary breakdown while on a flight home from Cancun, where she emotionally claimed that a man had physically abused her. The episode was later attributed to a mix of drugs and alcohol.
Now, six months later, Selma is in a much better place than she was during that difficult time. “I’m fully recovered,” she admitted to People on Dec. 12. “[It was] very embarrassing."

“I can only say that sometimes you just have a moment that you wish you didn’t have, and you do whatever you can to rise above that and get through it and be a better person," the mom-of-one continued of the incident.
The Legally Blonde star is now looking ahead to a positive new year. “I’m looking forward to how everyone can come together and make this world better and really see the things that make people struggle, and empathy, and helping people, and that we will all have a better 2017 than 2016,” she added. “I’m ready to put it behind me.”
