Kate Winslet and husband Sam Mendes never travel in planes together due to superstition. Both Kate and Sam have had close calls with terrorists threats on planes and fear they’d leave their children orphans if they fly together. Sam narrowly dodged a terrorist-inflicted flight and Kate was actually aboard a plane that landed due to a man claiming to be a terrorist.
The Daily Mail reports that Sam was originally booked on the flight from D.C. to Los Angeles that terrorists hijacked and flew into the Pentagon building on Sept. 11, 2001. Kate similarly was aboard a plane from London to Houston, TX when a man stood up, claimed to be a terrorist and screamed ‘We are all going to die!’
Now the two don’t ever fly together, seeing as they both seem to have bad terrorist-flight-choosing-luck. I guess that makes sense.
Do you think they’re being too paranoid?
