Selma Blair is a member of the Kris Jenner fan club. The actress, who plays the momager in FX’s upcoming series American Crime Story: The People vs O.J. Simpson, tells Us Weekly, “I happen to love Kris Jenner.”

“I found her to be endearing and extremely intelligent and warm and generous. I don’t have enough good things to say about her,” the Cruel Intentions actress, 43, told Us at the Operation Smile 2015 Gala in Beverly Hills on Friday, Oct. 2. “I thought she was wonderful. I don’t think I knew just how amazingly likeable she is and how giving.”

American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson tells the story of the 1995 murder trial of the former NFL star, and the Legally Blonde actress tells Us that she closely followed the proceedings, which culminated in a not guilty verdict that was handed down 20 years ago this weekend.

Jenner, 59, was married to Robert Kardashian, who represented Simpson in the trial as his defense attorney.

“I remember really following the O.J. Simpson case and really feeling tremendously for Ron Goldman’s family and Nicole Brown Simpson,” Blair tells Us. “I think it’s important to keep remembering.”

The first photos of Blair as Jenner surfaced in May this year.

“People do say I look like Kris,” Blair told Us at an event for the Children’s Justice Campaign on May 12, when she and Jenner met on the red carpet for the first time. “You kind of have to get in her mindset from like 20 years ago with this trial.”

American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson is set to air in February 2016, and features a star-studded cast that includes Cuba Gooding, Jr., Sarah Paulson, John Travolta, David Schwimmer, Jordana Brewster, Nathan Lane, Evan Handler, Cheryl Ladd, and Connie Britton.
