While Selena Gomez is busy going on zoo dates and bible study excursions with Justin Bieber, there’s one big celebrity who’s singing her praises.
In a recent interview Jennifer Lopez said that if given the choice she would want Selena to portray her in the movie version of her life. “I would want Selena Gomez to play me in a movie. She is a cutie,” the singer said.
This isn’t the first time Selena and Jennifer Lopez have been compared. Jason Evigan, who produced Selena’s latest album Stars Dance revealed J.Lo was the inspiration for the album. “I kind of feel she’s going to be like a new J.Lo kind of thing” he said.
Selena does seem like the only logical person who could properly fill Jennifer’s Louboutins. Selena can act, sing, and dance (she’s may not be on J.Lo’s level but she’s much better than her BFF Taylor Swift). Plus, she does have Jennifer’s charm and charisma.
What would make Selena even more perfect for the role is that 1997 Jennifer played Selena Quintanilla-Pérez the Latin singer whom Selena was named after.
If the movie does happen, and Selena is cast as Jennifer, maybe Justin Bieber could play Ben Affleck.
