Selena Gomez is doing everything she can to become a serious, adult actress. She is taking on riskier roles and trying to shed her teeny bopper image, but it is not easy to do when your face is synonymous with a hit Disney show. It is a struggle many child actors are faced with.
So far, Selena is navigating the path from child actress to adult, seamlessly. The real test will be in the next year when her first adult films hit the theaters. Selena wants to be taken seriously, and that means stepping out of her comfort zone and dealing with the repercussions.
Her latest film project, The Getaway, is an action flick. Selena reveals how dangerous it was on set, "This is going to be where I die." Ack! What was she doing? Apparently, Selena had to put her life in the hands of her co-star, Ethan Hawke, and his driving skills. Ethan was given a quick lesson on how to do 360-degree spins in a car.
When Selena jumped in the car to begin shooting the scene, she reveals the conversation that took place and left her a little weak in the knees. "You've done this before in another movie, right?' and he said, 'No, this is my first time.'" Obviously, Selena Gomez survived, but she was not completely unscathed. She suffered some bruising, but she is ecstatic about her injuries, "I actually wanted to get a few injuries, so I could be like, 'Yeah, I've got battle scars from making an action movie.'"
Hopefully, Selena's role in the action film will cement her place as an A-list Hollywood actress and her acting skills will not be questioned, again.
