Jennifer Lawrence is looking back at the harrowing plane incident that could have claimed her life! In the cover story for the December/January issue of Vanity Fair, she talked about how a flight home from a family visit turned into one of the scariest experiences she has had.

Lawrence was worried for her dog's life while on plane

Lawrence explained that the plane was travelling back from Louisville, Kentucky when disaster struck. After an engine failure, the pilot attempted to make an emergency landing. However, this ended up being unsuccessful as the second engine also cut out in Buffalo, New York, leaving Lawrence fearing for her life.

"We were all just going to die," the actress, who stars in the upcoming Netflix comedy Don't Look Up, said of the passengers on the plane. Lawrence said that she then composed "little mental voicemails" for her loved ones since she didn't think she would make it, and felt "guilty" about the situation. She  also mentioned that she was flying with her dog Pippi, which she said was "the worst part" of it all.


Lawrence said she felt bad Pippi's life was also in danger, since the animal "didn't ask to be a part of any of this." While they were both lucky enough to survive the incident, Lawrence said she now finds flying "horrific," even though she has to do it on a frequent basis. She also shared a lighthearted anecdote from the moment the plane was saved by emergency services, jokingly saying she prayed to "let me keep my hair."
