"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," says the actress about her airline disturbance.

Selma Blair says she is sorry for creating such a disturbance on a Los Angeles-bound plane Monday that she had to be removed on a stretcher.

The actress, who recently portrayed Kris Jenner on the FX series The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, said in a statement to Vanity Fair that she had mixed an undisclosed medication with alcohol and that is what caused her bizarre outburst. 

“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 said in the statement. "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.”

According to reports, two nurses aboard the plane helped subdue Blair, who was screaming uncontrollably. 

Gossip site TMZ claimed the actress was taken to the hospital once the plane, arriving from Cancun, landed at LAX. 

Blair was returning from vacation with family. 

A request for comment was not returned by her rep.
