Selma Blair thanks fans for support


Selma Blair has thanked her fans after being axed from Anger Management.

The 40-year-old actress says she’s grateful for the love and support she’s received after Lionsgate, which produces the TV sitcom, confirmed she’s not returning to the show following her "heated battle" with its leading star, Charlie Sheen.

She wrote on Twitter on Wednesday, "I thank you for support and love. (sic)"

Charlie reportedly told producers of the show he’d quit if they didn’t immediately replace Selma, who played his therapist and love interest on the show, because he believed she was trashing his work ethic behind his back.

Producers quickly gave into his demands and the studio released a statement earlier on Wednesday, saying, "We are confirming that Selma Blair will not be returning to Anger Management and we wish her the very best."

Charlie ? who was fired from Two and a Half Men in 2011 after his infamous hell-raising lifestyle got out of control ? is said to be eager for Mila Kunis to replace Selma.

He’s apparently pitched a 10-episode storyline to producers with Mila in it, and the Ted actress will be offered $1 million (R10 million) an episode to take on the part.

The outspoken actor, who’s reportedly set to earn between $75 million (R750 million) and $200 million (R2 billion) if he completes the 100-episode order for the series, has starred in roughly 50 episodes to date.
