The actress tells PEOPLE her tween son is into money and 'typical boy' things
Selma Blair has a sense of humor about raising a pre-teen.
Speaking with PEOPLE at Glamour's Women of the Year Awards on Tuesday, the Legally Blonde actress, 51, shared an update on what her son, 12-year-old Arthur Saint, thinks of her being honored.
"I can't remember. My son probably said, 'Are you getting paid? Can I have money?' " she laughs. "I imagine that's like what he always says."
"Oh, typical boy. Yeah, that's why we celebrate females," she jokes. "No, my son is perfectly 12. I'm sure he is proud."

Blair celebrated her son's 12th birthday in July with a heartfelt tribute shared on Instagram. Alongside a collection of photos of the tween, whom she shares with ex Jason Bleick, she wrote, "My Saint, Arthur, happy birthday 🎂."
"This has been the most incredible life with you. Forever my favorite, I know you are going to have the best year yet," she continued.
"I am so proud of who you are and have become. Usually 🦁. The most adorable little kid has grown into a 12 year old!!!! 🐣🦅. I love you and I like you. Massively. 💛 mom."
Blair opened up about her son's involvement amid her battle with multiple sclerosis in her documentary Introducing, Selma Blair, which premiered last October. A scene from the documentary shows Arthur shaving his mom's head prior to her life-altering stem cell transplant in 2019.
"It was to have him be a part of it, help him be in control of maybe like a first image of Mom looking different," Blair told Entertainment Tonight of letting Arthur perform the haircut. "That was pretty easy and a nice moment, and it makes me feel better knowing Arthur has a say — not a say, really, but is included."
Blair also noted that Arthur has already forgotten some of the moments featured in the documentary. "There is so much I realize he was really young he didn't remember," she added at the time.
