Selma Blair is mourning the loss of her mother Molly Cooke, who died at her home on Saturday.

The 47-year-old paid tribute to her mother in a heartfelt post on Instagram alongside a black and white picture of her on what looks to be her wedding day.

"Molly Cooke died yesterday. In her home. She was formidable, funny, quick, striking and generous. She often gave the shirt off her back, a trait I have adopted. Gifts of herself.

"My mother was a brilliant judge and one of the only women in her law school class. She was my first style icon, my muse, my prize. My whole life, I kept my eye on the prize. And, now, it is a very queer feeling to soften my gaze."

The Cruel Intentions actress said her mother had "many friends and admirers, cousins and nieces, a sister, and most of all, us, her girls, her grandchildren."

She added that their lives will never be the same and that wished she could pay tribute to her mother in the company of her sisters, Lizzie, Katie and Mimi.

"Usually, it is when us girls are together as sisters, when we can better show what an original you were, Mom. A great. I hold you from here. Oceans of love, Baby bear, the original Saint," she ended the post.
