Selma Blair has taken to Instagram to show that she is not letting her multiple sclerosis diagnosis and the grueling treatment she underwent for the disease get her down. Proudly showing off not just her bald head, but also quite a bit more. The 47-year-old actress has posted several pictures showing off her cleanly shaven head, but in the most recent effort, she showcased her body in its entirety as well, with her buttocks in full view.

For the picture, Selma stripped down to just a preppy pink and green sweater to pose in front of a mirror. While her rear end is not covered, she used a crab-shaped purse to block her frontal region. She captioned the provocative post with, "Portrait of a lady. @thombrowneny in #calfornia. Shot by @creativerehabnyc #subversive universe #barbie"

Most of the comments on the post, which has over 200,000 likes were positive. Actress Christina Milian gushed about the 47-year-old and said she "adored" her, while another fan posted, " You have an amazing ability to capture a full and complete reflection of all that you’re feeling in any moment. Thank you for your sincerity and beautiful vulnerability." Unsurprisingly, however, not all the comments were so supportive, with quite a few expressing their discomfort at the revealing pic. 

"I don’t get it but that’s just me," one user wrote. "It’s a tough disease but never lose your dignity, Selma. I get the shock factor though." In response, Selma clapped back, "I think it’s a vulnerable, humorous, odd and interesting fashion shot. I like it." Another fan posted, "I have MS and I’m strong every day I don’t let it bring me down but this is too much [sic]," to which the actress wrote back, "I always liked fashion and photography. Sorry it’s not your thing." She also responded to suggestive comment which asked if "the curtains match the drapes," cleverly hitting back with, "Yes. Bald bald."

Selma had gone public with her MS diagnosis last October, writing, "I am disabled. I fall sometimes. I drop things. My memory is foggy. And my left side is asking for directions from a broken gps." MS is a lifelong condition that affects the brain and the spinal cord and does not have a known cure. However, earlier this year, she announced she underwent Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), a complicated and experimental therapy that uses mild to stronger forms of chemotherapy to reset the patient's immune system and erase the memory of MS. And like traditional chemotherapy, one of the side effects of HSCT is the loss of hair. But as evidenced by a string of posts on her Instagram page in the months since she took the grueling treatment, the actress has not let the setback affect her in the least.
