Double trouble! Kris Jenner and Selma Blair met for the first time ever on the red carpet of the Children’s Justice Campaign event in Beverly Hills on Tuesday, May 12, where they immediately bonded and posed for photos together.
The stars’ friendly first encounter came a day after Blair was confirmed to portray the Kardashian family matriarch in FX’s upcoming series American Crime Story: The People V OJ Simpson. The Cruel Intentions star, 42, and reality family momager, 59, both dressed in head-to-toe black attire to help support their pal Kelly Rutherford for her charity.
On the red carpet, the two greeted each other with a big embrace and even took selfies together.
On Wednesday, Jenner posted a selfie with Blair of the two making the same face on the red carpet. “Met the gorgeous Selma Blair last night who is going to play me in the television series American Crime Story/The People vs O. J. Simpson,” Jenner wrote. “I think she’s a great choice..Follow her @therealselmablair she’s amazing….#love #remembernicole.”
Blair told Us Weekly and other reporters about how “very excited” she was to portray Jenner in the miniseries. “She’s such a presence,” the Anger Management star gushed. “You kind of have to get in her mind-set from like 20 years ago [with] this trial.”
It helps that they somewhat resemble each other. “People do say I look like Kris,” Blair continued, adding that she wasn’t sure what would happen to her long tresses for the role. “I think Kris’ hair is the same. I’m not sure yet. It depends,” she told Us. “I’ve had short hair though, like Kris, a lot. But that was when I was younger, and you can get away without having hair in your face.”
Blair has yet to meet the entire Kardashian clan, but consider her a fan. “I met Kourtney at a birthday party, because [we] have kids and Kim,” she said. “And I love Khloe. I wish she was my best friend. But I’ve only like seen her at an event and like waved. Because you feel like you know these people, so you’re just you know… but no.”
Jenner echoed Blair’s excitement about the series while speaking with Us on Tuesday night. “I think she’s great. I’m a big fan,” the mother of six said of the Legally Blonde actress. “I’m excited.”
