Despite giving one of the greatest bad performances in a really bad ’90s movie of all time (her “Cecile” in Cruel Intentions was sublime), Selma Blair had always been one of those working actresses who didn’t let their accomplishments go to their head, did her job and kept it out of the spotlight.
That was until last June when she had a scary meltdown on a plane that led to her being taken off it in a stretcher. She later apologized and blamed the standard pills-and-booze combo for what happened. Well, Selma had herself another trying time.
She apparently experienced a daylong series of unfortunate events which she chronicled in an Instagram post, accompanied by a GIF of her tear-stained face. She should blame pills and booze for that maneuver, because no one should admit that they were in their right mind when they willingly created and posted a GIF of their tear-stained face.
People reports that Selma’s terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad day began when she forgot to take the gas pump nozzle out of her car’s tank at the station before driving away. Oops.
“I drove away from a gas pump with the nozzle still in,” she said. “And then I paid for the broken pump so that was over a 500 dollar tank of gas.”
Feeling “awful for being so absent minded,” Blair then “burst into tears in front of barista after ordering and made everyone uncomfortable.”
Selma noted that she had already been feeling touchy due to being “chastised” over an online photograph of her “wearing fur but that was weird cause it was teddy bear fur.” (Apparently she doesn’t care about how many Paddington Bears had to die for her ugly coat.) To top it all off, she also mentioned that she tragically discovered that she had some shopping to do.
And I ran out of dog food. And excedrin. Can I have someone say this will pass ?
It will pass, Selma. I’d advise her to do what the rest of us do when we have a bad day such as hers – drink heavily – but that seems to have been part of the problem in the past. How about some yoga? There’s also this meditation app I know of where this British guy with a lisp talks you through the storm of your life and soothes that you can forgive yourself for all your horrible mistakes and whatever.
And have Peapod delivery bring you some dog food and Excedrin. Be gentle with yourself.
