Selma Blair Breaks Down in Tears After Driving Away From Gas Pump With Nozzle Still in Her Car

Selma Blair was in tears in an Instagram Boomerang posted on Friday, February 3, after she drove away from a gas station pump without removing the nozzle from her car.

“Ok. So my head is still pounding,” the Cruel Intentions actress, 44, captioned the post. “I drove away from a gas pump with the nozzle still in. I was chastised for wearing fur but that was weird cause it was teddy bear fur. And then I paid for the broken pump so that was over a 500 dollar tank of gas. Felt awful for being so absent minded.”

Blair continued, “Then I burst into tears in front of [a] barista after ordering and made everyone uncomfortable. Still crying. And I ran out of dog food. And excedrin. Can I have someone say this will pass? #waytogo #crapday #stillgrateful #makemelaughplease #timetoplaywithmylittleone.”

Another added, “Tomorrow will be a much better day. For now, you need chocolate.”

Blair has been candid in the past about facing difficult days. Last year, she was hospitalized after having a meltdown on a flight from Cancún, Mexico, to Los Angeles with her ex Jason Bleick and their son, Arthur, 5. She later attributed the incident to a combination of wine and prescription medication.

“I made a big mistake yesterday,” she said in a statement to Vanity Fair on June 21, 2016. “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. 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.”
