Selma Blair and Kris Jenner shared a hug on the red carpet for the 24th annual Women in Entertainment Breakfast hosted by The Hollywood Reporter in Los Angeles Wednesday.

In American Crime Story: The People v OJ Simpson, Blair plays Jenner, who was both the ex-wife of O.J. Simpson‘s attorney and close pal Robert Kardashian, and a good friend to the deceased Nicole Brown. Jenner had reportedly been more than willing to help Blair prepare for the role and the two formed a fast bond.

“We’re seeing double! ?,” PageSix captioned a picture of the two on the red carpet. “Selma Blair and Kris Jenner share a laugh at The Hollywood Reporter’s 24th Annual Women in Entertainment Breakfast.”

Jenner reposted the image, writing, “Had the best inspirational morning with this beauty @therealselmablair !! #love #friendship #Hollywoodreporter.”

At the Women in Entertainment event, Blair gushed about Jenner, the famous momager to the Kardashian-Jenner girls. “She is the most endearing, warm, funny woman,” Blair told E! News. “She came on the carpet and took pictures with me and I love a Kris hug.”

During a red carpet appearance earlier this year, Blair had called Jenner “a very strong person,” adding, “and I’m happy to be associated with her in any way.”

While Blair is playing Jenner in the highly-anticipated anthology series, Friends star David Schwimmer is taking on the part of her late ex-husband. Like Blair, Schwimmer had only good things to say about the reality TV star and how she helped him prepare for the TV part.

“She was very generous with her time and spoke very highly of Robert,” Schwimmer told E! News. “I’m excited to explore that relationship with Selma. She’s fantastic.”

American Crime Story: The People v. OJ Simpson is slated to premiere on FX Feb. 2.
