THE SWEETEST THING
SELMA BLAIR (Jane Bums), a native of Southfield, Michigan, is best known for her starring role in Cruel
Intentions, a youthful retelling of the classic novel Les Liaisons
also written and directed by Roger Kumble. Her sly performance as the shy,
bumbling 'Cecile' earned her rave reviews and an MTV Movie Award for "Best Kiss" with
Sarah Michelle Gellar. She was also nominated for an MTV Movie Award for Best
Breakthrough Performance for her role in the same film. In addition, she won the Movieline
Magazine Award for Most Exciting New Face.
After graduating from high school, Selma dreamed of becoming a photographer.
She moved to New York City to pursue her goal but found her way to acting classes at The
Stella Adler Conservatory and The Column Theatre. She was then discovered by an agent in
her acting class and one week later got her SAG card doing a television commercial for
Theater of Virginia.
Selma starred for two seasons as the title character in the WB's "Zoe." She most recently was seen on the big screen in the independent feature Kill Me Later for director Dana
Lustig; in this summer's smash hit Legally Blonde, in which she starred opposite Reese Witherspoon; and in Storytelling from director Todd Solondz (
Welcome To The Dollhouse, Happiness.)
