“It’s really fun. I’m lucky,” Gomez told the magazine about being part of Hollywood’s hottest young couple. But, she added, “I don’t take anything in my personal life too seriously. I have great friends and a solid group of people I love. I feel like everything else will come organically.”
So don’t expect to hear wedding bells anytime soon for the young actress and her teen pop star boyfriend.
“Marriage and all that other stuff I think will happen once I feel accomplished in every other aspect of my life,” Gomez said.
Right now, the former lead singer of The Scene is focused on moving past her teen-idol image. She hopes that the three movies she’s made this year (including the indie crime drama ‘Spring Breakers,’ costarring James Franco) will help audiences see how she’s not a child anymore and she wants to be taken seriously as an actress.
“It’s frustrating whenever I want the roles that no one’s even thinking about me for, and being like, ‘No,’ with all these other ones,” she confessed to the magazine. “Being part of the Disney Channel was such a blessing, and I’m super happy with what my show accomplished, but acting is something I would like to take on more seriously.”
Perhaps unbelievably, given her success, Selena says she doesn’t feel accomplished.
“I want to create a whole different persona when it comes to acting.”
“’Monte Carlo’ was a good step for me at the time,” she said of her 2011 coming-of-age movie. “But I would never want to do something like that again.”
