In the midst with her battle with multiple sclerosis, actress Selma Blair took to Instagram over the last two weeks to share some very revealing and intimate photos of herself after her chemotherapy treatment. Many fans have shown support for the actress for sharing her experiences with the world, while others are critical of the artistic nature of the photo.
The first photo is a #throwbackthursday post of when the actress began physical therapy to begin recovering from her chemotherapy treatments to combat MS.
Blair writes, “The beginning of my journey to healing. Started physical therapy today. Long road to getting where I want to be.”
Blair has posted a number of other photos detailing her treatment and recovery.
Then this past Saturday, the actress shared a much more revealing photo. In the photo the Hellboy actress stands bottomless looking into a mirror with one hand on her head. She holds a crab-shaped purse in her left hand that covers up her front side. You can see it here.
Blair described the photo as “Portrait of a lady.” The title of the post was “Portrait of a lady.” She credited photographer Art T. Blair for the photo and tagged in fashion designer Thom Browne as well. (Related: Gone Girl Actress and Model Emily Ratajkowski Poses Nude in Response to Alabama Abortion Bill)
The post received mixed reactions. One person wrote, “Do what makes you happy butt wondering why the butt shots lately.. still think you are one strong woman. What do you do for treatment my niece was just diagnosed and looking into her treatment?”
Blair responded writing, “I had hsct. No meds worked for me. Still recovering. I prefer naked body in pictures. Adds a timeless element. But this was really because the jacket looked cool with bald head and bald bottom. Not meant to cause disruption in a day that is unsettling.”
Another user wrote, “With all do respect… you started to loose your mind lady… sad. I really loved you when you were sain.” Blair responded, “todah rabah. My mind is just fine.”
One user stated, “I don’t get it but that’s just me. It’s a tough disease but never lose your dignity, Selma. I get the shock factor though.” Blair replied, “I think it’s a vulnerable, humorous, odd and interesting fashion shot. I like it.” (Related: #MeToo Accuser Selma Blair Pushes Petition for Disney to Rehire James Gunn)
