Actress urges pal to binge watch her show Orange is the New Black after plane meltdown.

Actress Lori Petty has reached out to her pal Selma Blair following the Hellboy star's meltdown on a plane from Mexico to Los Angeles.

Selma had to be stretchered off the Delta flight on Monday (20Jun16) after mixing alcohol with medication on her way home from a vacation with her ex-boyfriend and their four-year-old son, and becoming more than a little muddled.

She began ranting about an invisible foe, prompting staff on the plane to try to calm her down.

Upon arrival at LAX, medics boarded the plane and escorted Selma off. She was subsequently hospitalised.

On Tuesday (21Jun16), she reached out to fans and friends to apologise for her actions, stating, "I made a big mistake yesterday. 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.

"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."

Orange is the New Black star Petty reached out to Selma via Twitter, writing: "@SelmaBlair all good, ma xx bad day - don't be ashamed - just feel better‼️ I love ya."

Lori also urged her pal to binge watch her prison drama on Netflix joking "days are way worse on there lol (laugh out loud)."

Selma responded: "I love you. Super bad day."
