Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair will forever be linked for their famous kiss in Cruel Intentions. Released in 1999 in the days before social media, the infamous lip-lock scene between the two young actresses went virile, inflaming forbidden love, and celebrating teenage debauchery.

Gellar and Blair are middle-aged mothers now, with the latter making headlines recently for her brave battle with multiple sclerosis. We’re happy to report that the two kissing bandits are still BFFs, with Blair recently acknowledging her Cruel Intentions co-star in an Instagram post as her “everything.”

This girl. (Always my girl) is everything. She tucked me in and brought me dinner and loved me up. I woke with so much love for #sarahmichellegellar . Since the day I met her over 20 years ago, she fought for me along with @rogerkumble to be Cecile. She took me under her wing and today is no different. I am so in love with my angel of a friend. The best. @janeylopaty also shared the love on my bed yesterday. She and @karenzambos @jaime_king and this one even threw me my baby shower and are there every step of the way. May we all have a friend like this. I love you @sarahmgellar and my whole team of lovelies . I count my blessings. #friendsforever #kathrynandcecile
