Selma Blair may play Kris Jenner in the upcoming series American Crime Story: The People v. OJ Simpson, but she’s also a fan of Jenner in real life.

“I happen to love Kris Jenner,” Blair told Us Weekly. “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 upcoming FX miniseries tells the story of the 1995 OJ Simpson trial, and Blair stars as Jenner, the former wife of Simpson’s attorney Robert Kardashian (who will be played by David Schwimmer) and friend of Nicole Brown Simpson.

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

American Crime Story, also starring Cuba Gooding Jr., John Travolta, and Sarah Paulson, will debut on FX in February. You can see the series’ first teaser below.
