Known as aviophobia or aerophobia, being afraid to fly is a very common concern. Some of your favorite Hollywood A-listers have even admitted to being scared of air travel, even though most of them fly in private planes. Here are ten celebs who are absolutely terrified of flying. Maybe some of their coping mechanisms can help you.
1. Sandra Bullock
Ironically the Gravity actress is deathly afraid of flying. Bullock admits that it’s the turbulence that really shakes her up. She said, “When there’s turbulence, something happens to my body and my face that is both loud and embarrassing to those around me… I wish there was a drug that I could just take where I didn’t care, still very much in control but just didn’t care!” Sandra survived a plane crash in Jackson Hole, Wyoming back in 2000, so maybe her fear is justified.
