Profile Bio Text
Selma Blair (born Selma Blair Beitner on June 23, 1972) is an American film, television and theater actress. Since Blair made her professional acting debut in 1995, she has starred in a variety of film genres, including several commercial Hollywood motion pictures, indie and art house films.
Blair officially started her professional acting career in December, 1995 on television, in the children's sitcom The Adventures of Pete & Pete; subsequently, in 1996 she made her debut in films. Her first work consisted of several television guest roles, brief appearances in mainstream films and lead roles in unreleased projects, including the New Zealand-fantasy film Amazon High (1997); later, she gained mainstream recognition after starring in the 1999 teen drama Cruel Intentions.
She achieved international fame as a result of her portrayal of the pyrokinetic-heroine Liz Sherman in the fantasy films Hellboy (2004) and Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008); other notable films include Legally Blonde (2001), The Sweetest Thing (2002), The Fog (2005), Purple Violets (2007), The Poker House (2008) and Columbus Circle (2012).
Blair portrayed in the 1990s the titular role of Zoe on the teen sitcom Zoe, Duncan, Jack and Jane; in the 2000s, she starred as Kim in the American version of Kath & Kim. In 2012-2013, she returned to television as the female lead in the first two seasons of the TV-series Anger Management.
Blair narrated the Holocaust-related documentary The Diary of Anne Frank; her performance, for which she was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2011, drew positive reviews from critics.
Blair was born Selma Blair Beitner in Southfield, in the Metropolitan area of Detroit, Michigan; the youngest child of judge Molly Ann (née Cooke) and Elliot I. Beitner.
Blair had a Jewish upbringing; her Hebrew name is Bat-Sheva. Her father was an attorney, active in the U.S. Democratic Party and labor arbitrator until his death on November 17, 2012, at the age of 82. Her parents divorced when Blair was 23; she subsequently legally changed her surname. She has three older sisters, Katherine (a book publicist), Elizabeth and Marie Beitner.
Blair attended Hillel Day School, a Jewish day school in Farmington Hills and Cranbrook Kingswood in Bloomfield Hills; soon after, she spent her freshman year (1990–91) in Kalamazoo College, where she studied photography and acted in a play called The Little Theater of the Green Goose. At that time, she wanted to be a ballerina and a horse trainer.
Later, at the age of 20, Blair moved to New York City, where she lived at The Salvation Army, in poor living conditions. She attended NYU as well as acting classes at the Stella Adler Conservatory, the Column Theatre and the Stonestreet Screen Acting Workshop; later, she returned to Michigan to finish her studies. After transferring from New York University, she graduated magna cum laude from the University of Michigan in 1994 with a BFA degree in Photography, BA in Psychology as well as Double major in Fine Arts and English. One week later, after graduating from Michigan, Blair returned to New York City to pursue her photography career or start an acting career.
Relationships and family
In 1990, Blair's childhood sweetheart died in an accident at the age of 18; later, talking about her tragic loss, she commented: "It made me realize I have to live...Having the boy I loved not anymore on this planet, I'd better live, I'd better do something".
On January 24, 2004, after six months of dating, Blair married writer and producer Ahmet Zappa (son of musician Frank Zappa) at Carrie Fisher's mansion in Beverly Hills, California. She filed for divorce from Zappa at the Los Angeles Superior Court on June 21, 2006, citing irreconcilable differences. In a statement to People, a spokesperson for the couple said, "Selma and Ahmet have decided to divorce but love each other very much and will continue to be close friends”. The divorce became final in December 2006.
Blair dated her Kath and Kim co-star Mikey Day from 2008 to 2010.
In 2010, Blair began dating fashion designer Jason Bleick. In January 2011, Blair's representative announced that she was pregnant with her first child. Their son, Arthur Saint Bleick, was born on July 25, 2011. In September 2012, Blair and Bleick announced that they had separated after two years.
