Selma Blair has found her superpower, and it’s one about 50% of modern Western society uses on a regular basis. The 48-year-old “Cruel Intentions” actress is fresh from an eye-opening interview with Town & Country, one seeing the choppy-haired star reveal that makeup has allowed her to become another person. Speaking to the media outlet on April 19, Selma talked depth from something that’s generally associated with the opposite. The “Legally Blonde” face called makeup a “superpower.” Check it out below.
Scroll for photos. Selma, massively in the news of late for her “Introducing, Selma Blair” documentary, was an open book as she also posed for photos in a stunning, $4,000 Fendi dress and $48,000 Tony Duquette earrings. The mom of one, whose 2018 multiple sclerosis diagnosis continues to be a talking point as the star publicly and bravely battles the disease on social media, opened up, saying:
“I’ve been made up by some of the most famous makeup artists since I started acting.”
Continuing, Blair added: “And I’ve felt so transformed by their makeup that I really did become a different person.”
Selma, who has been shouting out one very famous cosmetics brand as she name-drops Kim Kardashian’s KKW Beauty company on Instagram, added: “It was a superpower to me, and I mean this. Makeup is not trivial to me. If anything moves the needle for me in my life — even before my diagnosis or challenges — it is my gorgeous war paint.”
While 2021 actually saw Selma shouting out 40-year-old Kim’s fragrances, this interview brought mentions of an iconic brand, also known for its cosmetics.
“I don’t mind if my muscles get caught at the intersection of a slow brain signal. I just want those words to come from lips covered in Chanel gloss.”
Selma, fresh from showing off her shiny cane in a heart-wrenching update on her MS, also addressed rocking up to the Oscars with one, something she’s garnered mass praise for. More below.
“I hadn’t been on a red carpet for so long, and now I was coming. I knew, since my diagnosis, people might be watching. I didn’t know if I would be forgotten about and be the last one on the red carpet,” she said.
Selma made 2019 headlines for appearing at the Vanity Fair Oscar party with a monogrammed cane as she wore Ralph & Russo. She’s joked about “dropping crap all over the street,” but her 2.4 million Instagram followers see behind the laughs.
