Whoopi Goldberg sheds her flying fears!April 17th, 2009 - 11:07 am ICT by ANI
New York, Apr 17 (ANI): Whoopi Goldberg is trying her best to beat her flying fears by travelling via air.
Last month, the ‘View’ star shuttled back and forth to LA in a bus instead of taking a flight, when the show was being taped there for a week.
However, recently Goldberg managed to fly to London, where the musical version of the movie ‘Sister Act’ will be previewed next month.
The actress took a private jet, and was accompanied by a doctor who stood by with needles and sedatives, if in case she panicked.
“I had a guy with me, but I didn’t need it. I’m kinda proud,” the New York Post quoted her as saying.
The 53-year-old actress prepared for the flight after participating in a program run by Virgin Atlantic, where she sat down with a psychologist and a pilot.
And now the actress is so confident that she said: “I’m going to fly to the West Coast to surprise my daughter.” (ANI)
