Selma Blair and Christina Applegate are supporting each other through Multiple sclerosis
"She's just amazing and strong and fun."
Actress Selma Blair has shared that she and Christina Applegate are supporting each other throughout the experience of living with Multiple sclerosis (MS).
Selma was diagnosed with MS in 2018, while Christina shared her diagnosis last year.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Selma spoke about their close bond, even before their diagnosis, and how they support each other today.
She said: "I’ve known Christina for so many years, we’re really close, and I’m just a fan of hers.
"She is an iconic California girl actress of my generation, and she is it. There has not been one thing that she’s done that I haven’t been like, 'Nailed it', and she’s nailing just being who she is with this MS."
Selma went on to say that if you need something, Christina will be right at her house in a flash.
"She's just amazing and strong and fun," she said.
Selma also shared that she is helping Christina chose mobility aids and other devices that can help with her MS symptoms.
Earlier this year, Christina spoke about how the cast and crew of Dead To Me put no pressure on her to finish filming the show. However, she wanted to end it on her own terms.
She told the New York Times: "I had an obligation. The powers that be were like, 'Let’s just stop. We don’t need to finish it.'"
One of the options presented to her was for production to put together some episodes with previously recorded footage.
"I said, 'No. We’re going to do it, but we’re going to do it on my terms.'"
