With the exception of the occasional Instagram photo, we hardly ever see Wizards of Waverly Place co-stars Selena Gomez and David Henrie together. Luckily, that is about to change.
We chatted with David earlier today about his new movie 1000 to 1, in which he plays Cory Weissman, a college basketball player who suffers a stroke his freshman year. The star said that he and Selena still “talk all the time” — and revealed that they plan on starring in a movie together sometime in the future!
“Selena and I have always talked about wanting to do a movie together. Just one day that would be fun, when the timing’s right,” David EXCLUSIVELY tells us.
The very first We Day California is just around the corner, and we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate change with 16,000 of the Golden State’s most golden world-changers on March 26!
The list of speakers and performers announced to date (with more to be revealed) include:
1. Selena Gomez – Actress and multi-platinum recording artist
2. Seth Rogen – Canadian-born actor, writer, director, and producer
3. Magic Johnson – NBA legend, two-time hall of famer, philanthropist and co-chair of We Day California
Selena Gomez can breathe a sigh of relief, as judgment has been rendered for the male trespasser that was found lurking outside her Tarzana, Calif. home on Jan. 25.
Following the incident that occurred late last month in which the trespasser, who’s since been identified as Juan Daniel Garcia of Arizona, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge issued his ruling earlier this week.
According to Yahoo!, Juan Daniel Garcia pled no contest in court on Wednesday, Feb. 5, to a single count of trespassing on singer/actress Selena Gomez’s property. As a result of his plea, Commissioner Dennis Mulcahey sentenced Garcia to 120 days in jail as a condition of 36 months of summary probation.
In addition, the judge ordered Garcia not to contact Selena in any way, shape, or form and to stay at least 150 yards away from her and her residence. On top of that he’s also been ordered to submit to a search and seizure at any time and is forbidden from possessing any deadly or dangerous weapons.
Selena Gomez secretly completed a two-week rehab stint in January, E! News confirms.
The 21-year-old “Come & Get It” singer was admitted to Arizona’s Dawn at the Meadows on Jan. 5. Gomez’s rep denies reports that the former Disney Channel star was struggling with drugs or alcohol.
“Selena voluntarily spent time at Meadows but not for substance abuse,” a rep for Gomez tells E! News.
In December 2013, Gomez shocked fans by cancelling the Australian leg of her Stars Dance tour. “It has become clear to me and those close to me that after many years putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be,” she said in a statement.
A source told E! News that the pop princess “had been working non-stop for six years. She hit a wall.”
“She doesn’t like to say no, but she just reached a point where she needs a minute. She is not having a breakdown,” the source said. “She wants to be the healthiest that she can be and this means taking a little break. But she is fine. She is OK.”
After leaving treatment in January, Gomez hit up the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
She currently graces Seventeen’s March 2014 “Power” issue. “If you’re able to look yourself in the mirror every day with the decisions that you make, that’s where power starts,” Gomez tells the magazine.
“And sometimes you’ll have moments where you feel weak, but they’re supposed to encourage you. They’re supposed to push you and motivate you. I feel like that’s something that I always try to do is look at myself in the mirror and really what I’ve done and every day what decision I wanna make.”
We hope that Selena is healthy and happy now. It’s so good that she asked for help. We are excited for her future projects and we are SO proud of her and what she did!
An Arizona man was arrested Saturday on suspicion of trespassing at the home of actress and singer Selena Gomez, authorities said.
Los Angeles police received a 911 call at 9:25 a.m. reporting an intruder on the grounds of Gomez’s home in the 19800 block of Wells Drive in Tarzana, according to a police spokeswoman.
The suspect, Juan Daniel Garcia, 19, of El Mirage, Ariz., was taken into custody.
It was unclear if Gomez was home at the time, the spokeswoman said.
So let it be known throughout the land: William H. Macy has balls of steel. In addition to juggling a busy, successful film and television career, he’s taken on a new role—filmmaker. His first feature film, “Rudderless,” is a poignant story that explores finding happiness in the midst of loss and pain. And you know what? It’s really damn good.
“Rudderless” follows the wonderful, horrible life of Sam (Billy Crudup), a successful advertising executive whose life is shaken up when his teenage son shoots six students at his college, and takes his own life. Sam isn’t coping with this well—his life now revolves around microwave pizza and hitting the bottle hard; fast forward a few years later and Sam is living on a boat and making money by painting houses for a contractor. He’s sobered up and just trying to live his life as best as he can. While going through the remainder of his son’s possessions, Sam stumbles across music his son made in the time leading up to the shootings. As a former musician himself, Sam works out his angst by learning his son’s songs and playing them. Soon after, he finds it therapeutic to play these songs at a local bar. But when a young musician (Anton Yelchin) finds this music intoxicating, the two team up and start a band (with Ben Kweller!), changing their lives forever.
You’re probably thinking the movie sounds odd or inconsiderate—school shootings are a very sensitive subject and shouldn’t be taken lightly. But at the heart of “Rudderless” is a story about moving on; at a certain point, dwelling on the past becomes poisonous. On the other end of the spectrum from films like “We Need To Talk About Kevin,” “Elephant”, and other films with school violence at the center—”Rudderless” is about really, truly moving forward with your life and doing your best not to focus on the past. Sam doesn’t want to become a famous musician, he doesn’t want to forget about his son and pretend nothing ever happened, he just wants to find a way to carry on. No parent ever wants to be the father or mother of a child who takes the lives of others, but that possibility lingers ever more prominently as violence increases in the world around us.
Selena Gomez says working on her film “Rudderless” that’s debuting at Sundance — and even dodging paparazzi at the indie film festival — has been an escape from “the everyday madness that I’ve got to go through.”
“I could just wear my own clothes and not have to worry about anything and just be with these cool people,” Gomez said in an interview Monday alongside actor-turned-director William H. Macy and the film’s star, Billy Crudup.
Macy picked Gomez for a small part in his music-filled directorial debut after seeing her in “Spring Breakers” last year.
“I was stoked,” Gomez said. “I was about to go on tour and I knew it was going to be a year long. I kind of get this panic attack when I know I’m not going to be on a set for a year. Just because I do love both a lot.”
So the panic attacks subsided after stepping on set with the cast that includes Anton Yelchin, Felicity Huffman and Laurence Fishburne? “Yeah, what does that say about me actually?” Gomez said, laughing. “That’s exactly what happened. It felt good. It felt like I got to be just in that world and kind of step out of it all.”
The film revolves around a father who discovers his son’s musical talents — and then some of his own musicality — after his son’s death.
When asked when Gomez found her musical talent, she said, “I don’t think I have yet.
“No, I’m actually serious,” she said, as Crudup laughed next to her. “”I started music when I was 14. And I had like four Number 1 club songs before I was even allowed in a club. So I think that journey still kind of is happening for me. . I’ve never really had the opportunity to share a lot of that side of myself through lyrical content. So that’s stuff that I get to explore later.”
Selena Gomez’s star may have risen through her work on the Disney channel and her pop music, but it’s no accident most of her movie career has been more independent than mainstream.
“I’m just drawn to this kind of stuff,” Gomez told me last night at the Sundance Film Festival, where she was promoting her latest film, Rudderless. “There’s a sense of freedom that I’m given in the indie world where I can just go and play and be a part of a really great cast. These crews, they really love what they’re doing. That’s just fun to be able to step into.”
In Rudderless, a father discovers his deceased son’s demo tapes and lyrics. He forms a band to play the music to help him heal. Gomez play’s the son’s girlfriend.
“It’s pretty dark,” Gomez said, adding, “She’s in a lot of pain. She’s angry. ”
Gomez says it’s not hard for her to go those dark places.
“I find myself comfortable in that stuff—I don’t know what that says about me,” she said. “It’s a good contrast to what I am all the time and being on tour and all that life.”
She shot her work in just eight days.
“I was about to go on tour,” Gomez said. “I get anxiety when I know I’m going to be off a set for a while so I rushed there.”
Gomez first showed her indie chops in Spring Breakers, the 2012 hit in which she plays one of four college girls who get involved with a drug dealer while on spring vacation. In the film, Gomez is seen dancing around in her underwear and doing drugs.
