When recalling the horrific incident that nearly took her life, 'The Hunger Games' actress confesses that she made voicemails to her family as she believed she's 'going to die.'

AceShowbiz - Jennifer Lawrence has recalled moments when she was convinced she was about to die after her private plane underwent double engine failure. Detailing the near-fatal plane accident, "The Hunger Games" actress admitted that "flying is horrific."

"Flying is horrific and I have to do it all the time," the "Red Sparrow" star told Vanity Fair in her December cover story. "My skeleton was all that was left in the seat," the 31-year-old actress remembered the scary accident that happened back in 2017.

Jennifer, who joked that flying private meant she "deserves to die," was en route to New York City from her hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, when they were told they had to attempt an emergency landing in Buffalo. "We were all just going to die," the Oscar-winning actress said. "I started leaving little mental voicemails to my family, you know, 'I've had a great life, I'm sorry.' "

At that time, Jennifer was just one of two passengers on the plane. The other was the son of the doctor who delivered her and her two brothers. "I just felt guilty," the "Don't Look Up" star confessed. She then explained as to why she apologized, "Everybody was going to be so bummed. And, oh, God, [my dog] Pippi was on my lap, that was the worst part. Here's this little thing who didn't ask to be a part of any of this."

Upon seeing the runway filled with fire trucks and ambulances, the "Passengers" star, who is expecting her first child with husband Cooke Maroney, got really scared. "I started praying. Not to the specific God I grew up with because he was terrifying and a very judgmental guy," she said with a joke.

"But I thought, Oh, my God, maybe we'll survive this? I'll be a burn victim, this will be painful, but maybe we'll live," Jennifer added. She then joked, " 'Please, Lord Jesus, let me keep my hair. Wrap me in your hair-loving arms. Please don't let me go bald.' "

Before coming to a halt, the jet hit the runway, bounced up and then struck the runway again. Rescue crews then broke open the jet's door and removed everyone, who was crying and hugging, physically unscathed.

However, Jennifer said that at that time, she had to board another plane. According to the publication, she was "anesthetized thanks to a very large pill and several mini bottles of rum." Reflecting on the outcome of the horrifying experience, the actress said, "It made me a lot weaker."
