How Selma Blair supports Christina Applegate amid MS battle

Selma Blair has Christina Applegate’s back amid the “Dead to Me” star’s multiple sclerosis battle — and the support is mutual.

“Christina still supports me. She’s just a strong one,” Blair, who was diagnosed with the same chronic disease in 2018, explained to “Entertainment Tonight” in an interview published Tuesday. “She really is. She’s such a nurturer.

“If you need something, she’s at your house,” the “Cruel Intentions” star, 50, continued. “There have been things that I had been unglued, and she’s like, ‘I’m outside. Answer the door.’ She’s just amazing and strong and fun.”

When it comes to helping Applegate, also 50, Blair has offered her expertise on canes since the “Married … With Children” alum’s 2021 diagnosis.

“I’m like, really into all of that, like all the things that help me get around, but she’s getting it locked down,” she told the outlet. “She has a lot on her plate. It’s a lot, but she’s as brilliant and beautiful as ever.”

Blair praised her “close” friend and “The Sweetest Thing” co-star “for nailing just being who she is with this MS.”

The “Legally Blonde” star noted that she attended Applegate’s Hollywood Walk of Fame induction ceremony last week.

“She was funny, and … her performance was amazing,” Blair added of the Emmy winner’s speech. “I just want to witness the greats in my friends’ lives.”

Applegate sent a powerful message at the Nov. 14 ceremony, rocking a manicure that told MS to f–k off at her first public appearance since being diagnosed.

“It’s been a strange journey. But I have been so supported by people that I know who also have this condition,” she wrote on Instagram last year. “It’s been a tough road. But as we all know, the road keeps going. Unless some a–hole blocks it.”

Applegate has battled other health issues over the years, including beating breast cancer by undergoing a double mastectomy in 2008. She also had her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed in 2017 to avoid ovarian cancer.

Blair, who has been battling MS since 2018, left “Dancing With the Stars” in October over concerns for her health.

While the “Jesse” alum tweeted in January that her and Blair both battling MS is “sad,” the “Hellboy” star went into remission in August 2021 after a stem cell transplant and chemotherapy.

Blair even competed on season 31 of “Dancing With the Stars” — although she exited the ABC show early over growing health concerns.

“I had MRIs and the results came back, and it all adds up to, I can’t go on with the competition. I’ve pushed as far as I could,” she told Page Six in October.

“With a chronic illness, you do have special considerations, and my body has taken a hit. It’s way too much for the safety of my bones. I could do extensive damage that I, of course, do not want.”
