Don’t Fly With Penelope Cruz

Was she panicking because she has no idea what she’s famous for besides dating everyone? Do you know? Penelope Cruz had a major freakout on an airplane on Thursday, causing a grounding and some luggage being tossed around.

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.

If this is some “Final Destination” shit, then I’m with her. Planes are scary. I know it’s safer than driving, but still – small metal tube suspended thousands of feet in the air and you have no clue who’s driving or about your other passengers. There’s a recipe for safety. But if this was some kind of celebrity drama mama drug flashback, then hopefully some battle axe flight attendant put her on blast before the deplaning.
