Penelope Cruz freaked the fuck out on a plane from Newark, New Jersey, to Barcelona, Spain, on Thursday night.
The Huffington Post reports:
Penelope Cruz had a panic attack onboard a Continental flight from Newark to Barcelona Thursday night. Cruz, who appeared to be traveling alone, was in first class and became agitated after the plane left the gate. After she spoke with the cockpit, the plane returned to the gate and Cruz deplaned. A fellow passenger told Huffington Post, "She was freaking out and refused to fly." In the process of Cruz deplaning, the flight removed all the bags, which then sat in the rain, so that the airline could locate her luggage.
The status on Continental's website of Flight 120 shows that the airplane returned to the gate in Newark before taking off almost two hours late, at 8:52 pm for a 7:10 pm departure.
Continental spokesman Dave Messing had no additional comment.
Cruz's publicist has yet to return a call for comment. The Oscar nominee is scheduled to shoot a Woody Allen film in Barcelona.
This is not the first time Cruz has had a air scare. Last year she told Marie Claire about an emergency landing a plane made in 2004 with friend Salma Hayek.
Was she on something???
