Later, she gained mainstream recognition after starring in the 1999 teen drama Cruel Intentions.

On January 24, 2004, after six months of dating, Blair married writer and producer Ahmet Zappa (son of musician Frank Zappa) at Carrie Fisher's mansion in Beverly Hills, California. She filed for divorce from Zappa at the Los Angeles Superior Court on June 21, 2006, citing "irreconcilable differences".
