If someone were to make a film about Jennifer Lopez, we know who she'd want to play her.

The 44-year-old superstar, who played the late Selena Quintanilla in the 1997 biopic, revealed who she'd cast as herself.

“I would want Selena Gomez to play me in a movie,” Lopez said, according to Newsday. “She is a cutie.”

A role such as this could be a good fit for Gomez whom has been compared to Lopez in the past.

"I kind of feel she's going to be like a new JLo kind of thing," Jason Evigan, producer of Gomez's Stars Dance album, told MTV in 2013.

Do you think Selena Gomez would be the right choice if they were to make a movie about Jennifer Lopez?
