Selena Gomez Says She Hasn't 'Touched the Surface' of Her Acting Career

Selena Gomez recently chatted with Variety about her blossoming acting career, surprising directors and how her mom influences her work.

Here’s what the 23-year-old star had to say.

On auditioning for The Fundamentals of Caring:Rob [Burnett, the director] didn’t know who he was going to meet. I knew it would be difficult for him to see me in that role. He had a lot of hesitation… So it feels good to feel like I earned it.”

On her growing acting career: “I’m in a place with my music where I’ve gone through this transition and I feel with this album I’ve been able to grow as an artist. But I feel like in acting, I haven’t touched the surface of what I’m able to do.”

On her mom: “My mom is the reason I did ‘Spring Breakers.’ She’s got incredible taste in a weird, cool way… There’s plenty of interviews where she’s mortified— ‘Why do you tell people that?’ When people ask how I came about that project, I always say it was my mom.”

    she has more talent in the film industry than the music industry. not the best actor but she has comedic timing . but her songs are so fun and pop-filled shes managed to gain a new audience . she just cant sing live at all and thats where it might fall of for her. its smart that she left acting open because if all fails she can return to a comedy show
