Sarah Michelle Gellar & Selma Blair Reunite During Evacuation For L.A Wildfires
Sarah Michelle Gellar, 42, had to quickly evacuate her Los Angeles home at 3 a.m. on October 28 due to the wildfire crisis. The Southern California wildfires have been spreading and continue to destroy homes and take the lives of innocent people. Gellar is among thousands of people who are currently scared for their lives — but there was one pleasant surprise that made the crisis a little more manageable for the Buffy the Vampire Slayer star.
Selma Blair, her Cruel Intentions costar, showed up and instantly put her in a better mood. The two starlets proved their 20-year friendship is as strong as ever with an Instagram post. On October 30 Gellar posted a photo of herself and fellow actress accompanied by an endearing caption. She expressed how emotional and scared she has been during the wildfire crisis, but that spontaneously seeing her best friend made everything much better.

I left my house on Monday am at 3am when we were evacuated, with the clothes on my back (since been washed don’t worry) and my family. I’m definitely scared and emotional, but then I get a surprise of @selmablair and now I can’t stop smiling. These moments remind me to be grateful for all the blessings I have, and Selma you are certainly one of them. Once again thank you to the @losangelesfiredepartment for all you do. We owe you so much.
It has been years since Gellar and Blair first met. From their initial meeting on set of the 1999 flick, all the way to now, they have supported each other during their hardest times. Since Blair was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis earlier this year, Gellar has been her biggest support system.
Blair took to the photo-sharing app as well to express her love for their friendship. In a post accompanied by pink hearts, the three-time Oscar winner said her friend is always there when she needs her the most.
