The “Sin City” star shared a sweet tribute to honor her friend of 20-years on Tuesday, April 27. King shared a smooching throwback where she leaned in for a passionate yet friendly kiss. Hollywood Life was the first to point out that the kiss pic was from New Year’s Eve 2014. Jamie included a beautiful quote from one of the two friend’s favorite authors, Jane Austen.
“‘There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.’ — Jane Austen, British novelist,” King captioned her post. “Love you Selmie ?.”
The fun throwback photo featured Jamie’s son, James Knight Newman. The young lad, who is now 7-years-old, was caught between the two beautiful actresses when the clock struck midnight. The whole post was a tribute to their 20+ year friendship.
Blair was diagnosed with Multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2018, and she opened up to PEOPLE about how King was there to support her during the difficult time. “It’s the strangest thing that the time that could be the most stressful, I am feeling the most joy,” Selma told the publication in 2019. “I think it’s because I’ve learned more than ever that there are people that support me, that love me. I’ve seen people dedicate their time to help me.”
Selma said that Jamie sent weekly flower arrangements and would visit her during treatments. “I’m always happy to see that face,” she said about King. The “Cruel Intentions” star noted that the love she received was beneficial in multiple ways. “It’s so important for my son to see me interacting with people and to see mom laughing with them,” Blair said. “I’m going to have to remember on days that I feel better to reach out to them.”
Sarah Michelle Gellar also made a lot of effort to help Blair out and cheer her up. The former co-stars, who have also kissed, remain really close, and Selma said Sarah started a “meal train.” “Sarah started the meal train, which is good because my kid likes to eat dinner and that wouldn’t happen without it,” Blair joked. “I get weekend meal packs like I’ve never feasted on before from Reese Witherspoon, from Constance Zimmer and so many people I don’t even know through Sarah.”
