Selma Blair was well and truly back on tip-top form as she cut an
attention-grabbing figure while stepping out on Tuesday afternoon. Ditching her
ill-fitting sweatpants in favour of a pair of tiny denim hotpants, the
40-year-old actress looked incredible as she showcased her toned and tanned pins
while filling up her car with gas. Letting her killer legs take centre stage,
the Anger Management star kept the rest of her daytime look simple in a
loose-fitting black jumper and basic ballet pumps, while toting a blue suede
shoulder bag on her arm.
Wearing a pair of oversized shades to shelter her eyes from the Californian sun,
the mother-of-one appeared to be wearing minimal make-up and had her raven locks

sleepless nights had been taking their toll as she took her adorable baby son
Arthur for a stroll around Toluca Lake, California.

drawstring trousers, and a black zip-up gilet.
The actress teamed her pieces with a pair of yellow and green sneakers, as her
son was sported super-cute Thomas the Tank wellington boots. Matching him mum,

trousers. The Cruel Intentions star is barely spotted without her son from her
former relationship with designer Jason Blieck. The two split with last
September, and Selma has made no secret of the stresses a single mother faces
when attempting to achieve the work-life balance.
She previously told TV Week: 'Somehow I was just hanging on. But then it caught
up with me – totally – and, since then, I’ve just fallen apart. I need to get
myself back together so I can go back to work so I can pay for a house for this
