“I get a lot out of talking to people in kind of the same spot as me,” the 33-year-old told People of his conversation with the Cruel Intentions costar. Ozzy Osbourne‘s son has been living with MS for seven years. “I find it kind of comforting knowing you’re not alone. That was really the crux of the conversation I had with Selma,” he added.
The 46-year-old has been quite open about her condition ever since revealing it to the world this past October. Most recently, Selma admitted that she has had some difficulties with everyday tasks. “I am trying to remember to breathe. I can’t believe people do this easily,” the actress captioned a photo of herself smelling a bouquet of flowers. “I hold my breath accidentally for oodles of time. That is problematic.”
“This is a huge act of love to do for someone who is housebound, people. Major. Heartbreakingly touching,” she said after letting everyone know that her friend Jamie King had sent her the flowers. But while she has her ups and downs, the mother-of-one still keeps her head up.
“She’s wonderful. She’s a bucket full of sunshine and olives and everything good and nice,” actress Josephine Langford, who stars alongside Selma in the film After, told Entertainment Weekly. “She’s hilarious and she’s lovely and she’s great as an actor.”
Hero Fiennes-Tiffin may have only had a short interaction with Selma on set, but he also felt her positive vibes. “She’s so cool. We had, like, a hour or two conversation outside,” the 21-year-old shared. “When you see actors who are so funny and confident and just great people and when they say action they’re straight into the role and straight out of it and it’s just inspiring really.”
We’re so glad to hear of all the kindness Selma is experiencing!
