Selma Blair's white lie

Selma Blair used to lie about her age.

The 'Cruel Intentions' star admits she is "embarrassed" that she used to fib about her date of birth but insists there was a lot of "pressure" at the time to be of a young age.

She told The Hollywood Reporter: "There was a lot of pressure for me to lie about my age and say I had just turned 18 when I was actually 26. I did a couple times, and now I'm so embarrassed.

"Finally it was a grown woman, Judy Davis, who said, 'What are you doing? You have your own stories to tell.' I stopped immediately and became my own age, and embraced just being who I am."

Meanwhile, the 43-year-old actress is looking forward to playing 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star Kris Jenner in upcoming film 'American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson' and recently gushed about the 60-year-old television personality.

She shared: "Kris is the most generous woman. I found her to be so lovely and endearing, she welcomed me into her house. Hopefully, we'll end up being friends. I have so much respect for her."
