Selma Blair is not ashamed to admit that she has her Google alerts turned on to give a ping every time the actresses’ name hits the interwebs, but even she was taken back by her most recent outing hitting the press … although she admits she was having a great time! The “Cruel Intentions” star took to Instagram on Sunday afternoon and shared some photos from a recent trip outside her home when she happened to bump into an old friend.
48-year-old Blair shared the fun moment with fans and explained that she hadn’t even realized she was going to be making headlines when she ventured outside to enjoy the warm fall weather in Los Angeles.
“I was having a very pleasant evening indoors organizing my makeup drawers, reminding myself to wear more sunscreen, then googling sun damage and hats and scarves to wear around my neck all the time. Or turtlenecks…to combat sun damage which I must have oodles of. I was never a devout spf girl. Regret,” Blair wrote in her long message to fans.
The actress then explained that she has her own named set for a Google alert, like many people in Hollywood, which lets a celeb know if she or he needs to jump on the phone with their publicist ASAP.
“I got a google alert ( of me. Who else? Really) and this made me laugh out loud. It was an impulse. Show enthusiasm for seeing a familiar face! Even if it behind a camera. And it felt like summer. So warm, quiet,” Blair wrote about seeing the paparazzi photos of herself.
Selma Blair also admitted that having her picture taken served a good purpose, as she was rocking a top designed by one of her close friends.
” I was genuinely happy to get my picture taken. Because I was wearing my friends top. I mean her line ( swiper no swipe!) it feels like her ? and I love that. @buuski @shopwyllis . I am a proud pal. With a smile behind that mask! ? sending one second of fun to you all and thanks for all the love.”
The outfit featured a purple top with flowers and butterflies, along with ripped daisy dukes. Of course, Blair’s red shoes made sure to match her mask.
Selma Blair has truly enjoyed her casual outings around town, as they are now far and few between during the COVID-19 era of living. The actress recently shared a dinner she attended at one of her favorite hangouts in West Hollywood, and celebrated the evening with a fantastic white jumpsuit.
“A fresh getup for dinner at Mauro’s. Clinging to this parking lot for dining sanity. Delicious. It’s my one big evening out every so often…the light has been golden from the fires. But clearing. Also Fred Segal is an LA staple and more charming and appreciated than ever.”
