When the engine on Jennifer Lawrence’s private jet failed, she thought she was going to die.
Jennifer Lawrence has been left ‘a lot weaker’ after two engine failures on a private jet journey left her believing ‘we were all going to die.’
Jennifer Lawrence discusses her concern for her life after a private jet emergency in which the engine failed.
After flying private from Louisville, Ky. to New York City, the 31-year-old recounted feeling like her “skeleton was all that was left in the seat.”
Due to flying private, the Oscar winner joked to Vanity Fair that she “deserves to die.”
“We were all going to die,” she claimed. All that was left in the seat was my skeleton.
“I started leaving tiny mental voicemails to my family, like, ‘I’ve had a wonderful life, I’m sorry,'” she says.
During her journey on June 10, 2017, the actress heard a loud noise and was informed that the first engine had failed.
On the flight, the actress was accompanied by the doctor who delivered her and her two brothers.
They were informed that an emergency landing would be required at Buffalo Niagara International Airport.
Jennifer remembers the plane being silent, followed by the failure of the second engine, which she described as a “very rare” occurrence.
“I simply felt guilty,” she recounted. Everyone was going to be so disappointed. The worst part, though, was having [my dog]Pippi on my lap. This small thing didn’t ask to be a part of any of it.” The Hollywood celebrity recalled looking out the plane window at the runway below and seeing fire engines and ambulances preparing as they approached the airport.
“I started praying,” she added. Not to the particular God with whom I grew up, since he was terrible and harsh.
“But I thought to myself, ‘Oh, my God, maybe we’ll make it through this?’ I’ll be a burn victim; it’ll be painful, but we might make it.
“Please, Lord Jesus, don’t take my hair away from me. Wrap your hair-loving arms around me. Please don’t let my hair fall out.” The plane smashed into the runway hard, bounced up into the air, and then slammed into the ground again, coming to a halt.
As the passengers and crew hugged and sobbed in relief, rescue teams ripped open the door.
Jennifer had to board another flight right away, which she said was made easier by “a very large tablet and numerous little bottles of rum.”
“Flying is awful and,” the Silver Linings actress stated afterward. The news is summarized by Brinkwire.
