Selma Blair Posts Pic With Michael J. Fox After Revealing She Asked for His Advice Ahead of MS Diagnosis

Selma Blair can't help but gush over Michael J. Fox.

On Wednesday, the 46-year-old actress took to Instagram to share a pic of herself with the Back to the Future star, just over a month after praising Fox for being there for her before her multiple sclerosis diagnosis last year. In the photo, the duo are all smiles as Blair poses with her arm wrapped around Fox's shoulders.

"I like this man. @realmikejfox . I am not alone in feeling this way. Notice our #underdog shirts. He has #misfits while I have on #badnewsbears," she wrote of the pair's graphic tees. "We are all a #timecapsule in this photo."

Blair and Fox weren't the only stars present for the taking of the sweet photo. In the caption, Blair revealed that none other than Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey was the person who snapped the shot.

"My heart. 💛 mjf... your presence. You. The best. Thank you. And thanks...@jennifer_grey (!!!!!!!) for photo," Blair wrote. "I just blew your minds. Right? 🤷‍♀️💋🦋💯. #jennifergrey 👠 #michaeljfox 💥 with me??? Hellllloooooo!!!"

Last month, during an interview with Good Morning America -- her first televised sit-down since revealing her MS diagnosis last October -- Blair revealed that, when she was unsure what was causing her symptoms, she reached out to Fox, who's been open about his Parkinson's disease diagnosis.

Blair decided to contact Fox after she wasn't "taken seriously by doctors," and was told that her symptoms were due to her being "a single mother," "exhausted" or dealing with finances.  

"I said, 'I don't know who to tell, but I am dropping things. I’m doing strange things,'" she recalled of an email she sent Fox. "He got in touch with me and we began a conversation. So he really helped me… He gives me hope." 

"Plus I was like, 'I have Michael J. Fox’s email now. Like, I’m pretty cool. I’m cooler than I thought,'" she quipped.
