Selma Blair Plays Kris Jenner in American Crime Story

Selma Blair is apparently a member of the Kris Jenner fan club. The actress, who plays the momager in FX’s upcoming series American Crime Story: The People vs O.J. Simpson, tells US Weekly that, “I happen to love Kris Jenner.”

“I found her to be endearing and extremely intelligent and warm and generous. I don’t have enough good things to say about her,” the Cruel Intentions actress, 43, told US Weekly at the Operation Smile Gala in Beverly Hills last week.  “I thought she was wonderful. I don’t think I knew just how amazingly likeable she is and how giving.”

American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson is a new series that has been causing a lot of buzz. American Crime Story tells the story of the 1995 murder trial of the former NFL star. The story says that it was culminated in a not guilty verdict that was handed down 20 years ago in October.

A lot of people say that Selma Blair resembles Kris Jenner and Blair has even admitted herself that, “my attitude in my life right now is very similar to Jenner’s 20 years ago after this verdict.”

Kris Jenner was married to Robert Kardashian. Robert Kardashian represented Simpson in the trial as his defense attorney.

“I remember really following the O.J. Simpson case and really feeling tremendously for Ron Goldman’s family and Nicole Brown Simpson,” Blair tells US Weekly. “I think it’s important to keep remembering.” American Crime Story is set to air February 2016, featuring a knockout cast with actors ranging from Cuba Gooding Jr. to John Travolta.

Some may say that it’s just another show capitalizing on Kardashian fame but we will see for ourselves when the series comes out.
