Paul Wesley had the scare of his life on Friday the 13th.
The Vampire Diaries actor, 29, and his wife Torrey DeVitto, 27, "were flying to Toronto for a quick 24-hour trip, and we had a really amazing thing happen: Our plane got struck by lightning," Wesley said on LIVE! With Kelly Monday. "There was a huge burst of light and this loud [noise]."
"I thought, 'This is it. I'm going down with Joan Rivers,'" Wesley continued. "'This is going to be my final hurrah. My goodbye.'"
Host Kelly Ripa, 41, then said: "I would be reassured by that. I would be like, 'You know what? God would not take a national treasure like Joan Rivers away from us, so we are fine."
Rivers, of course, put a comedic spin on the terrifying flight experience. "I just landed on a plane from L.A. that was struck by lightning," she tweeted Friday. "Thank God everyone is fine. I now think Benjamin Franklin was an ass!"
