Selena Gomez started her career at Disney, starring in ‘The Wizards of Waverly Place.’ She’s come a long way since then, and is now promoting her new movie, ‘Hotel Transylvania 2,’ but it might be time for a ‘Wizards of Waverly Place’ reunion if she wants to stay relevant with the kids!
Selena shared an experience she had chatting with a young fan.
You know kids don’t even know who I am anymore. It made me so sad [because] I was literally doing an interview with this little girl…and I was like, ‘You know, when I did the show I was on,’ and she goes, ‘What show?’ I was like, what’s happening? I’m getting old!”
While it’s funny to think of Selena as being “old,” what happened makes sense: it’s been a few years since ‘The Wizards of Waverly Place’ ended, so a grade-school age kid wouldn’t be familiar with it. It just goes to show you how fast things move in the entertainment world!
In ‘Hotel Transylvania 2,’ Selena plays a mom to a half-baby, half-vampire son. At 23, she’s old enough to be a mom! However, it was “very weird” for Selena to take on the role.
But at the same time, it was cool because when I saw Dennis, my son, I immediately became like super protective already. It was so precious. I just wanted to love him.”
Awww… that’s sweet. Selena also talked about what it’s like having a voiceover role.
You’re there for 10 days. You’re hanging out. You’re acting crazy and making all these noises…It’s the best feeling to go in and play with people.”
Sounds like she’d be up for more gigs like this! We might get to see ‘Hotel Transylvania 3’ if this one does well enough at the box office.
