Warner from “Legally Blonde” had an unrequited crush on this cast member throughout filming

Matthew Davis has had a long career in Hollywood, however, we probably all know him best as Warner from Legally Blonde. He was the handsome, but idiotic boyfriend of Elle Woods who dumped her because she wasn’t serious enough, thus launching Elle into her law school career. Later in the film, Warner meets the obnoxious Vivian Kensington, played by Selma Blair, and they get engaged.

Turns out Warner had a massive crush on Blair all through filming, and sadly, it went unrequited.

“I absolutely loved and adored Selma, Davis told Australian news outlet, news.com.au, "I developed a crush on her at the time but she was with someone else — I think she was dating the guy from Rushmore [actor Jason Schwartzman] but he was coming around and I was kind of like ‘who is this guy?!’

It’s true that Blair and Schwartzman did date in the early aughts.


Davis added that the source of his crush was because of how funny Blair was.

“She was the funniest person on set. I love a very dry, dark sense of humor, so she had me in stitches the whole time. She was the bees’ knees,” he told the outlet.

We find this admission so endearing, mostly because it was a crush in the truest sense of the word, and also because he called her the “bees’ knees.” Awww.

However, we think Davis bounced back from that crush.


The Vampire Diaries actor got engaged to his longtime love last year, so we’d say he’s doing alright.
