“Arrow” actor Stephen Amell says he feels “deeply ashamed” about his behavior aboard a flight in June, before which he “had too many drinks.”
Amell was asked to leave the flight before it departed after a public argument with his wife, Cassandra Jean, the actor recalled on an episode of Michael Rosenbaum’s podcast “Inside of You.”
“What happened was — and it’s very, very simple — I had too many drinks, and I had too many drinks in a public place. And I got on a plane,” he said.
He continued: “I was pissed off about something else that had nothing to do with Cass, my wife, and I picked a fight. I picked a fight because I wanted to be loud and upset. And it was a fight, as in like, it was not an argument. In order to have an argument, two people have to be talking. My wife said one thing the entire time, which was, ‘If you don’t lower your voice, they’re going to ask you to get off the plane.’ That’s the only thing she said the entire time.”
Arnell added on the podcast, “It’s really, really shameful.”
“And it makes you kind of look in the mirror. And I just realized a couple of things: if people are going to recognize you, don’t necessarily drink in a public place, but more importantly, don’t drink in a public place if you can’t handle your s—.”
Amell and Jean, an America’s Next Top Model alum, were married in December 2012.
