Actress Jennifer Lawrence opens up about fearing for her life during a private plane emergency after the engine failed.
The 31-year-old recalled how she felt her "skeleton was all that was left in the seat," after flying private from her hometown Louisville, Ky to New York City.
The Oscar-winning actress joked to Vanity Fair how she "deserve to die," due to flying private.
She said: “We were all just going to die. My skeleton was all that was left in the seat.
“I started leaving little mental voicemails to my family, you know, ‘I’ve had a great life, I’m sorry.’”
On June 10 2017, the star heard a loud noise during her flight and was told that the first engine failed.
The star was joined on the flight with the doctor who delivered her and her two brothers.
They were told they had to make an emergency landing at Buffalo Niagara International Airport.
Jennifer recalled the plane then going silent and then the second engine failed, which was "extremely rare" incident.
She recalled: “I just felt guilty. Everybody was going to be so bummed. And, oh, God, [my dog] Pippi was on my lap, that was the worst part. Here’s this little thing who didn’t ask to be a part of any of this.”
As they flew into the airport, the Hollywood star remembered looking out of the plane window at the runway below and seeing fire trucks and ambulances ready.
She added: "I started praying. Not to the specific God I grew up with, because he was terrifying and a very judgmental guy.
"But I thought, Oh, my God, maybe we’ll survive this? I'll be a burn victim, this will be painful, but maybe we'll live.
"Please, Lord Jesus, let me keep my hair. Wrap me in your hair-loving arms. Please don't let me go bald."
The plane slammed into the runway hard and bounced back up into the air before hitting into the ground again and coming to a halt.
Rescue crews broke the door open as the passengers and crew hugged and cried each other in relief.
Jennifer had to immediate board another flight which she said "a very large pill and several mini bottles of rum," helped her do so.
The Silver Linings star said afterwards: "Flying is horrific and I have to do it all the time.
"It made me a lot weaker."
