On Selena + Chef: “I enjoy cooking and making people feel good. But after I did a season of that, I was just eager to do something that was going to be interesting to me. I wasn’t going to take a risk on something I didn’t think was worth it…obviously, I’m a klutz, and people enjoy that.”

On making the cast ditch a script for a promotional social media post and opting, instead, to do a casual, off-the-cuff post: “I just did a selfie video where all of us were just being ourselves. That was my two cents I could put in.”

On how Only Murders appeals to people across generations: “I’ve played the show for people from my little sister to my grandparents, and they laugh when they need to laugh. They’re upset and confused when they need to be. It’s something that leaves you feeling intrigued, but not heavy and down and sad or stressed.”

On overcoming criticism she faced as a young actor: “I was exposed to people criticizing me as a child, and it was honestly unfair. The older I got, the more I realized that if I do something I really love, people watching will hopefully enjoy it.”

Selena Gomez also addressed some of her headline-making commentary about Disney recently.
