MALADIE

Aux Oscars, Selma Blair ignore la maladie pour son premier tapis rouge depuis le diagnostic

La star de « Hellboy » souffre de sclérose en plaques

Malgré la maladie, Selma Blair a décidé de rayonner. L’actrice qui a révélé souffrir d’une sclérose en plaques en octobre dernier a posté sur Instagram une photo où on la voit fouler le tapis rouge de la soirée post Oscars de Vanity Fair, avec sa canne, qu’elle ne quitte plus.

There are moments that define us. This is one of those indelibly watermarked in my heart. This is #troynankin ; my former publicist turned manager , best friend , and fake husband. We joke. I have become a different woman in the last few years, through struggles and the intense pride of motherhood. @vanityfair has always been a champion of mine, like Troy. And yet, I have not fully realized my capabilities as an actress. I wanted to be at this red carpet to remember my first time attending with a not yet famous friend, @jakegyllenhaal . I believed in him and his career and wanted him there. And this dinner always symbolizes so much. And I kept going because it was always a night in hollywood that was full of hollywood dreams with all the talent present in their glory. I loved to watch. I was invited this year. I am featured in March issue . Thank you @radhikajones @kristasmith @samiranasr #juliemiller @cassblackbird . So this was a streak of light. To say I am here. I am still in an exacerbation so there was some nervousness. I don’t do anything the way I was once able. I will though. I can regain much. Mommas gotta work. And I will be able to do so much more on my own, But this man. Until that comes ...This man and a host of others light the way and hold the moon @thetexastroya was a hero. Wanting me to shine brightly in a time that can be so challenging. He knew I wanted to be able to stand proudly as the woman I have become and hope to be. To be a part of something so special when my body won’t move clearly yet. And then I felt the love from the photographers who have watched me goof around on red carpets since I was in my twenties. I felt the warmth of the bulbs. The strength of my gown. His attentive touch. And still I hoped my brain could send signals for the remainder of my time there. And I sobbed. And I appreciated every single second. Every surprising tear, he was there. As he has always been. And that is the reason I could. Thank you Troy. We got me just where I wanted to be. For a night. And I later pushed my way into a family photo with @dianaross (omg) . So much to post but not before this one. True love. Right here. Forever.

« C’était un rayon de soleil. De pouvoir dire que je suis là (…) Je ne fais plus les choses comme avant. Mais ça va revenir. Je peux tout récupérer », a-t-elle promis en légende de l’image.

Toujours debout

Selma Blair est également apparue dans l’émission Good Morning America et fait l’objet d’une longue interview dans Vanity Fair, où elle revient sur sa vie depuis le diagnostic. « Je ne suis presque personne à Hollywood. Mais quand j’ai vu les commentaires sur Instagram de gens qui souffrent, de sclérose en plaques ou d’autre chose, je me suis dit, ''Il est nécessaire d’avoir un peu d’honnêteté à propos du handicap de la part de quelqu’un de célèbre'' », a-t-elle expliqué au magazine.

La star de Hellboy n’a pas pour autant fini sa carrière puisqu’elle apparaîtra bientôt dans la série Another Life diffusée sur Netflix.
