Murphy's Plane Prayers
Brittany Murphy has conquered her fear of flying through praying and sleeping. The 29-year-old Sin City star was previously too terrified to travel by air but now puts her faith in God and sees plane journeys as a chance to escape from everyday distractions. She says, "I've got over it. Now when I get on the plane I say a prayer until I know we are up safely. "I have a lot of faith and pray a lot. So I gave my trust to God and I ask him to carry the plane safely to the destination. "It helped when I realised that a plane was somewhere I could relax and sleep because no one could get in touch with me. So now I look at it like a great big bed in the sky. I associate it with a place of rest."
