Selma's paternal grandparents were Jewish immigrants (from Poland and Russia), and Selma's maternal grandfather was from a Jewish family from Ukraine/Russia. Selma's maternal grandmother was of Scottish (from Lanarkshire) and English (from Warwickshire) ancestry.
Was delivered via Caesarean section.
Returned to work 8 months after giving birth to her son Arthur in order to begin filming Anger Management (2012).
Was in consideration for the role of Susan Johnson in Arthur (2011), but Jennifer Garner was cast instead.
Was 5 months pregnant with her son Arthur when she completed filming on Dark Horse (2011).
Gave birth to her son Arthur Saint Bleick, with boyfriend Jason Bleick, 21 days late and weighing in at 7lbs 12oz (25 July 2011).
Was in a relationship with Mikey Day, having met on the set of Kath & Kim (2008) (December 2008-August 2010).
Announced that she and her boyfriend, fashion designer Jason Bleick, are expecting their first child together (13 January 2011).
I played teen roles until high definition came out, and I could never understand it. I would go in for adult roles and be older than many of the people auditioning, but they'd cast the girl without a line on her face.
I don't like slugs and tentacles and calamari or anything. Actually, tentacles made me turn into a vegetarian in high school. I'm not anymore, but in high school, we were dissecting squid.
Perhaps I have managed some sort of longevity because I haven't won the lead roles. I don't have the pressure of being a world-famous bombshell that has detonated.
If I get married, it's something you really have to work at. It's hard enough to work at having a relationship with best friends and girls that are in the business.
I was a smoker for about 20 years.
I think I'm under the radar enough where I don't think I'm typecast as anything yet, so I'm pretty free and clear.
I went through a period of pulling away from everything - acting, people - not sure if I would ever have a voice in this business.
I put my foot in my mouth every time I'm interviewed.
I think it's been confusing for people because I haven't had a linear career.
My sister, I have a sister who's 12 years older, she was always the party girl, the outrageous one.
My mother dressed me always very conservatively.
Jason Lee made me laugh all the time because he's so big, and I love how goofy bodies can be.
It's fun to play mom. Last I knew I was playing a 17-year-old who graduated.
I do turn down things that I feel aren't right for me, like when it's some kind of adolescent thing that might typecast me, but I'm not worried about it.
In high school I would mess with my hair and makeup all the time.
It's fun to go to the movies and be scared.
It was like I had a baby and I suddenly started to feel I could play anything.
I'm open to anything. I would love to play someone completely off the wall.
I'm a working actress able to make choices based on characters rather than what I 'should' do for my career.
I have three sisters, that's it for the family.
I love to laugh and well, who doesn't?
I have no fears when it comes to my hair or clothes.
I don't always know how to communicate. I think I get a bit unfiltered and a bit strange to people.
I never want to be a showoff or attention getter or something that, truthfully, is kind of repulsive to me, but I get uncomfortable.
The problem with paparazzi is that it makes you question your boundaries, like, how do I say, 'That's enough guys?'
Part of me would love to have been a leading lady because there's a lot of glamor that goes with that and a lot of applause, but I've been very blessed.
I go from being hugely hopeful and entertaining to... really not. I'm not manic depressive, but I can really go to the darker side.
I can't afford security. I can't afford a gated house. So, I feel a little vulnerable. I wish some laws would come into play.
I don't have the pressure of being a world-famous bombshell that has detonated.
I have no ego, I'll make fun of myself, and I'll make fun of being humiliated. I get it.
My first crush was Spock. I thought it didn't get any better than Spock.
I'm flat-chested, I'm short, I'm brunette, I have droopy eyes, and so people have a hard time casting me as a 'beauty.'
I think getting married gave me a focus. It gave me a focus and direction I want to have in my life. And I think having another person that you make such a purposeful bond with has given me the opportunity to see how that can be with all the other aspects of my life.
I have very little faith that I'll ever find someone. I've had some bad luck and I've made some bad choices - not in men, but in how I've chosen to deal with relationships.
Bathroom humor, fart, and poo poo humor in movies gets a laugh. It's a pretty easy audience, and that's been around for ages.
I think Vegas is the answer for pregnant people because of insomnia. It's open all the time and you go down and play your silly slots.
I'm pretty much a loner and I've lived under the radar.
A wedding is such a girl thing.
I think I'm more approachable with long hair. When it's short, I come across as being artsy and weird.
I think we all feel like misfits when we open our mouth sometimes, you know?
God knows, I never want to hurt someone's feelings.
I will do almost anything for the sake of a joke or for the sake of someone's real belief in something to help tell a story. I will not do something shocking for the sake of being nasty. If it's not hurting anyone's feelings, I'm in on the joke.
I'm one of those hovering mothers and I know it's really important to have an independent child, so I'm trying to back off, but it's hard. I love him so much, and he's so funny and cute to me.
I used to wear a lot of red lipstick, and when I got a pimple, I'd cover it up with eyeliner to turn it into a beauty mark.
[on performing in Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008)] I loved being surrounded by monsters and I guess it goes back to my childhood. I loved fairy tales - Aesop's Fables, Grimm's Fairy Tales. I was a big fan of Little Matchstick Girl.
On husband Ahmet Zappa's noteworthy proposal: "I said, 'I need something to make sure that this is real,' a Ferrari or something, and so he gave me a highlighter pen. It was a yellow highlighter pen. ... He told me that his father, Frank Zappa, had asked his mother to marry him with a pen".
