“I’ve been raped several times, I started using alcohol when I was 7” – Hellboy’s biography is not an easy summer reading

Selma Blair, familiar from the films Hellboy, Cruel Intentions and On the Track, has written a very open memoir.

Samples from the biography of Mean Baby: A Memoir of Growing Up were published earlier this week People magazine website.

The excerpts revealed Selma Blair had been raped several times in her life. In the book, Blair also talks about his struggle with alcohol. He first became intoxicated at the age of seven. The sobriety occurred in 2016.

According to Selma Blair, she has so far only talked about her harsh experiences in therapy, but believes writing about it will help her deal with her trauma.

The official description of Mean Baby is as follows:

Selma Blair has played many roles: Ingenue in Cruel Intentions. Preppy ice queen in Legally Blonde. Muse to Karl Lagerfeld. Advocate for the multiple sclerosis community. But before all of that, Selma was known best as … a mean baby. In a memoir that is as wildly funny as it is emotionally shattering, Blair tells the captivating story of growing up and finding her truth.

”Blair is a rebel, an artist, and it turns out: a writer.” —Glennon Doyle, Author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller Untamed and Founder of Together Rising

The first story Selma Blair Beitner ever heard about herself is that she was a mean, mean baby. With her mouth pulled in a perpetual snarl and a head so furry it had to be rubbed to make way for her forehead, Selma spent years living up to her terrible reputation: biting her sisters, lying spontaneously, getting drunk from Passover wine at the age of seven, and behaving dramatically so that she would be the center of attention.

Although Selma went on to become a celebrated Hollywood actress and model, she could never quite shake the periods of darkness that overtook her, the certainty that there was a great mystery at the heart of her life. She often felt like her arms might be on fire, a sensation not unlike electric shocks, and she secretly drank to escape.

Over the course of this beautiful and, at times, devasting memoir, Selma lays bare her addiction to alcohol, her devotion to her brilliant and complicated mother, and the moments she flirted with death. There is brutal violence, passionate love, true friendship, the gift of motherhood, and, finally, the surprising salvation of a multiple sclerosis diagnosis.

In a voice that is powerfully original, fiercely intelligent, and full of hard-won wisdom, Selma Blair’s Mean Baby is a deeply human memoir and a true literary achievement.

The book will be published in English on May 17th.
