Selma Blair thinks Kris Jenner is ''lovely and endearing.''

The 43-year-old actress is set to play the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star in the upcoming film 'American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson' about about the murder trial of her late ex-husband Robert Kardashian's client O.J. Simpson - who was accused of killing his ex-wife Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman in 1995 - and hopes they can build a long-lasting friendship.

She said: ''Kris is the most generous woman. I found her to be so lovely and endearing, she welcomed me into her house. Hopefully, we'll end up being friends. I have so much respect for her.''

Selma is also eager for her four-year-old son, Arthur, to become friends with Kris' grandchildren, Mason, five, Penelope, three, and Reign Disick, eight months, as well as North West, two.

Asked if they have arranged any play-dates, she said: ''No, but we will. We keep trying to set it up.''

Aside from working on the film, the 'Cruel Intentions' star has spent the summer teaching her son how to swim and ride a bike.

She added to Us Weekly magazine: ''He feels that he's basically like he's starting college. He's now, like, a big guy.

''He's very sarcastic, thank goodness. Or else he'd be writing a terrible memoir about his life with me!''
