Born in Detroit, Michigan, Blair is the daughter of Molly Anne and Elliot. Her early years did not involve acting but rather photography; after matriculating from Hillel Day School, she studied photography in Kalamazoo College, but after a year Blair decided to leave and move to New York.

Blair continued her education at New York University, and also took acting classes on the side at the Stella Adler Conservatory and the Stonestreet Screen Acting Workshop. After a couple of years, she transferred to the University of Michigan and graduated magna cum laude in 1994, with a degree in Photography, Psychology, Fine Arts and English.

Blair’s career started in 1995 when she was included in the television show “The Adventures of Pete & Pete”, and later on landed roles in films including “In & Out” and “Strong Island Boys” – her net worth was now established.

Slowly her career was starting to bloom, and more projects came that helped her net worth to rise, but her big break came in 1999 when she became part of the movie “Cruel Intentions”. Based on the novel “Les Liaisons Dangereuses”, the movie started out as an independent film but became an international hit once released. Although Blair only played a supporting role, her memorable performance and her kissing scene with actress Sarah Michelle Gellar catapulted her to stardom. With her new found fame, Blair’s wealth also started to increase.

After “Cruel Intentions”, more projects came in Blair’s door in the coming years; some of her most memorable projects include “Legally Blonde”, “The Sweetest Thing”, “Kill Me Later”, and “Storytelling”, all of which contributed to her net worth.

Blair once again made waves in Hollywood when she became part of Guillermo del Toro’s superhero film “Hellboy” in 2004 playing the role of Liz Sherman, and reprising her role in “Hellboy II: The Golden Army” in 2008. The success of the franchise tremendously increased Blair’s net worth.

Today, Blair is still active in show business, has appeared in over 50 films and countless television productions that have helped build her career and wealth. Some of her most recent projects include the movie “Sex, Death and Bowling”, “Geezer” and “Mothers and Daughters”. She is also active on the small screen with “American Crime Story: The People v. O. J. Simpson” as one of her recent works.

Aside from acting, Blair is also active in charity, supporting various causes like Children’s Action Network, AmFAR AIDS Research, Lange Foundation and No Kid Hungry to name a few.

In terms of her personal life, Blair married writer Ahmet Zappain in 2004, but they divorced in 2006. In 2010, she began dating fashion designer Jason Bleick, and in 2011 they welcomed their son Arthur. However, the two parted ways in 2012.
