Selma Blair: ‘I feel like a mother hen to the Kardashian kids’

SELMA Blair says she feels forever invested in the Kardashian family after her role playing Kris Jenner in The People v. O.J. Simpson television miniseries.

Blair told she feels like a “mother hen” to Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and Rob after her turn as the world’s most famous mum.

“It was such a strange thing,” she said of playing Jenner, “and now I feel forever invested in Kris and the Kardashian children.

“I’m an older girl and while they’ve had so much success, I’m really protective of it and I love those girls and so when they do something, I feel like a mother hen.”

That includes Kim Kardashian’s now infamous nude selfie, posted earlier this month, which became the subject of much debate.

Blair says she thoroughly supports the reality star and mum-of-two’s decision to post the shot.

“She’s a woman that has been through a lot, she had a sex tape released without her permission and she went through some Playboy stuff without her permission and I think she’s a woman that is controlling her sexuality and she looks gorgeous and she wants to post it and I’m all for it.”

The 43-year-old said she has been told her whole adult life that she looks like Jenner, particularly when she has short hair.

And even Jenner herself agreed.

“She was supportive and said I did great and was very chic as a young her, God bless her.

“The day I met her I had a lot of eye makeup on and my hair back and we probably did look alike, actually there’s a selfie of us together. I think she did say we looked alike, but I’d have to look a lot cuter to look like Kris Jenner.

“I was really grateful to play her, she’s such a huge person and to even have a little part playing her is a huge thing, it’s embarrassing but also really wonderful.”

When quizzed on why Blair found the role “embarrassing,” she said: “You don’t know if you’re going to do the person justice and she’s alive, it was her best friend who died and you’re playing a part in that,” she said.

“That people would accept me as Kris Jenner is a gift.”

The People V O.J Simpson airs Sunday 8.30pm on Ten.
