Isla Fisher is scared of flying.

The 'Confessions of a Shopaholic' star was spotted freaking out as she boarded a Virgin America flight to New York on Monday night (11.07.11).

Luckily for the 35-year-old actress - who is married to Sacha Baron Cohen, with whom she has two daughters Olive, three, and baby Elula -the Cabin Crew realised she was nervous about the flight and let her speak to the pilot to alleviate her fears.

She was given a tour of the cockpit before the plane took off and as a thank you to staff, Isla posed for photographs with various crew members.

According to the New York Post newspaper, Isla was overheard telling a friend on the phone as she sat down on the plane, "I just met the pilots. They're really nice. I always feel better when I meet the pilots".

Isla isn't the only actress who is scared of flying.

Amy Adams is so frightened of air travel she will only board a plane if she can sit by someone she knows.

She previously revealed: "I've had some embarrassing episodes at airports. Certain American airlines don't assign seats and there have been times when I couldn't sit next to my companion. I've had a few meltdowns trying to get someone to change seats with me."
