In regards to the end of her starring role in Disney’s Wizards of Waverly Place, the Mexican American starlet talks about the pressure she sometimes feels as an actressoutside of the Disney machine. “ I was trying to explain it to one of my friends, and he said, ‘You’ll be fine. People believe in you. But when they’re putting together a movie with Leonardo DiCaprio, I don’t think they’re going to go, “Selena would be great for this!’ I’m not an option. It’s humbling, having to go from this Disney high back down to having to find roles,” she says.
And it goes with out saying that when it comes to Selena Gomez we’re all interested in her romance life, considering she’s dating the all-so-famous Biebz! “When your heart is broken you want to hate everything,” she explains. “You want to say, ‘I don’t believe in love; this is ridiculous. It’s not supposed to hurt this much.’ But at this moment in my life, I’m at a point where I want to be in love, to give my all and fall head over heels. I’m eighteen. I’m not going to marry anybody I’m with, and I know that. The next heartbreak I have, I’m sure I’ll be like, ‘How can I live without this person?’ But I’m trying to dive in and enjoy it.”
