Tara Reid has been removed from a flight after causing a disturbance prior to takeoff.

The 42-year-old actress was sat on-board a flight to New York, but was irked that she wasn't given a window seat and that the person in the seat in front of her was reclined, causing her to feel cramped.

The 'American Pie' actress complained loudly about the situation, according to TMZ, which also reported Tara was frustrated at having not been given a pillow.

Although flight attendants tried to resolve the issue, they were unsuccessful and a crew member eventually asked Tara and her dog to leave the plane.

A Delta spokesperson told TMZ that the plane eventually took off following a short delay, with Tara reported to have boarded an alternate flight.

Meanwhile, Tara recently admitted to having made some bad life choices, conceding she wishes she'd done some things differently.

The actress - who used to be known for her wild partying - shared: ''I would do a lot of stuff differently. I wouldn't have gone out so much and been so crazy.

''When I started out, I wasn't aware I would lose all my privacy, so I was doing everything that your average 21-year-old does, but it was there for everyone to see. I should have made wiser choices about where to go and what to do, because that kind of all caught up on me and it changed everything.''

Tara - who has been engaged three times in the past - also revealed she remains keen to have children.

She said: ''I think about kids, for sure - all my friends who have kids say it's the greatest thing, so I'd like to one day.''
