SELMA Blair “appreciated every second” of her appearance at an Oscars after-party on Sunday, following her MS diagnosis.
The 46-year-old was pictured attending the Vanity Fair Oscars Party in Beverly Hills where she used a cane to support her movement following her battle with the illness – which affects the central nervous system, disrupting the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body.
And now, the star has detailed her emotional return to the public eye, and sent special thanks to her manager and “fake husband” Troy Nankin, who supported her both literally and figuratively on the red carpet.
In a lengthy Instagram post, she wrote: “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 realised 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.” – BANG!
