Selma Blair Says Joining DWTS Is A “New Chapter” In MS Journey

Selma Blair is ready to make her dance.

The legal blonde actress is set to compete on season 31 of Dancing with the stars this fall, together with partner Sasha Farber. “I’m so excited,” she told E! News exclusively on September 9. “I’m so happy, so empowered by this. I’m someone who historically may have been a little afraid of things – no fear!”

Selma said she is motivated in part by the support of her friends, family and even her Instagram followers, who have encouraged her as she battles multiple sclerosis, which she was diagnosed with in 2018. “This is a new chapter in increasing my stamina and truly healing,” she added. “Not only heal, but also find strength and support.”

The actress continued: “It’s for the viewer because that’s what has given me support. In dark times in my life, there are people who came forward – strangers on the street or Instagram … I do it for them.”
