The actress Selma Blair Beitner was born in Southfield, Michigan, in 1972. When she was younger, she didn`t like her name, so she rather preferred to be called Blair instead of Selma. She has a degree in photography that she got at the University in Michigan.
Selma started her career in photography in New York, but after some time there, she began to visit some acting classes at Stella Adler Conservatory and Stonestreet Studios. Her husband is a son from the famous Frank Zappa, Ahmet. Two of them are married from 2004.
Selma Blair is a child of a lawyer and a judge. An interesting fact about her is that she is afraid of water because of the movie Jaws. She was attending the Cranbrook Kingswood School, like some other popular actors, such as Jaime Ray Newman, who is an Oscar winner.

I’m happily wrecked. But not shipwrecked. Sun and motion are off putting to put it mildly, but Arthur is in his element and he even gifted me with one of his freshly caught opelu for my lunch. He also caught a trumpet fish. Slimy and exotic. And set free. A good day on the boat. 🐠 @whipsawsportfishing 💛necklace thank you @poosh 💛 #jennifermeyerjewelry
