Selma Blair is attributing a children’s book to helping her get through her unhappy teenage years.
Receiving a copy of the book, The Secret Garden from her mom before starting college, Selma related to the main character which helped change her for the better. She said:
“This book changed me the most, for the best. I was kind of a depressed teenager. My mother would introduce my sisters and say, ‘Ok, this is the athlete, this is the overachiever, and then this is Selma, the manic depressive.’
“It’s strange that such a childish book had such an effect on me, but it did. I felt so like sour Mary, and the book transformed me the way the garden transformed her – teaching her not to let sad, bad thoughts stay in her head.”
