Selma Blair a beaming beauty in LA as she heads out with her service dog Scout
Selma Blair looked happy and stylish as she was seen taking a walk in Los Angeles on Tuesday with a friend and her service dog Scout.
The 49-year-old actress donned a long-sleeved creme sweater over a collared shirt with blue jeans and white sneakers. She wore brown sunglasses and had a black bag over her shoulder.
The Cruel Intentions star was seen holding a cup of coffee on the daytime stroll in the City of Angels, days after she took to Instagram to fill her 2.7 million followers in on how Scout, an English red fox Labrador, has been a comforting and helpful presence amid her battle with multiple sclerosis.

‘Scout helps me with some personal stumbling blocks and aids in my mobility,’ the Another Life actress said in the caption of the post. ‘I am building stamina and coordination with the aid of this special dog and training! I am excited for this time to focus and settle and get out of the house more.’
She said of her service dog: ‘He is very handsome, and friendly, but if you see me and Scout, and we are working (which he really always is, as am I) then give a smile but please don’t approach. Distractions really set me back.’
Blair said she was ‘so happy to have’ Scout, and promised to give her friends and fans updates ‘as we evolve.’
She added, ‘If you see me down, do not worry, Scout has me covered. Literally actually. I send you all love and happy holidays!!!!’

The actress received a number of supportive comments to the post from friends including Amanda Kloots, LeAnn Rimes and Alessandra Ambrosio.
Blair, who is mother to son Arthur, 10, with ex Jason Bleick, in 2018 went public with her MS diagnosis, which has impacted her ability to speak and use her left leg.
In October, while promoting her documentary Introducing Selma Blair at the discovery+ TCA panel, the actress said that she was ‘in remission’ after receiving stem cell treatment. She said ‘it took about a year after stem cell for the inflammation and lesions to really go down.’
Blair said that she was ‘reluctant to talk about it’ as she ‘felt this need to be more healed and more fixed’ amid her health battle.
‘I’ve accrued a lifetime of some baggage in the brain that still needs a little sorting out or accepting,’ she said. ‘That took me a minute to get to that acceptance. It doesn’t look like this for everyone. I have really felt unwell and misunderstood for so long that it’s just, me.’
Blair has also been working on a memoir about her life titled Mean Baby, which is due out in April.
