Longtime friends Selma Blair and Christina Applegate are supporting each other through their journeys with multiple sclerosis (MS). After the “Dancing With the Stars” season finale on Nov. 21, Blair spoke about her friendship with Applegate and how the two have leaned on each other during their respective battles with the condition. After exiting “DWTS” early due to health concerns, Blair, who was diagnosed with MS in 2018, had returned for a beautiful final performance.

In the interview with Entertainment Tonight, the “Cruel Intentions” actor opened up about being there for her friend and former costar at Applegate’s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony on Nov. 14. The ceremony marked the “Dead to Me” star’s first public appearance since she shared her MS diagnosis in August 2021. “I’m a fan of hers,” Blair said. “She is an iconic, iconic California girl, actress of my generation, and she is it. There has not been one thing that she’s done that I haven’t been like, ‘Nailed it.’ She’s nailing just being who she is with this MS.”

Blair had joined Applegate’s family, fans, and friends, including her “Dead to Me” costar Linda Cardellini and former “Married . . . With Children” costars Katey Sagal and David Faustino. She added, “She’s funny and definitely, her performance was amazing, but to be there, I just wanted to witness the greats in my friends’ lives, just quietly back there. To know I was there for something that we dream about when we’re little.”
