Selena, Showbiz Experts Say You Need To Sex Up Your Image Like Miley & Taylor To Be A Serious Contender In Hollywood!

Tue, July 27, 2010 10:00pm EDT by 111 Comments

HollywoodLife.com consulted with a leading agent, manager, producer, director and casting director — and almost all of them agree: sex gives a career longevity in Hollywood!

Miley Cyrus and Taylor Momsen seem to have turned into Hollywood’s terrible twosome overnight. The 17-year-old starlets kiss girls, wear their underwear in public and constantly defy authority. Meanwhile, Disney actress Selena Gomez is every mother’s dream child — she’s wholesome, tactful and talented. Isn’t that the kind of girl who deserves the most success?

Sadly, that’s not the case in Tinseltown. HollywoodLife.com spoke with several A-list showbiz insiders who told us that if Selena keeps image squeaky clean for much longer, she’ll never see the same amount of success as her former Disney counter-part Miley or Gossip Girl starlet Taylor!

SERIOUSLY? WHY?

Selena seems “boring” next to Miley and Taylor…she doesn’t have the same appeal to older audiences

Holier than thou Selena COULD have a career like Dakota Fanning’s, a sweet-looking girl who lands gritty roles and earns rave reviews for her “real” performances. However, I think that because she got her start at Disney, and, relatively, a little late in the game, she may wind up being type-cast in exclusively pre-teen films. If she landed the young role that would show her to be a Reese Witherspoon-type, she could break free of cheesy movies, but I think that her squeaky clean image won’t do anything but keep her doing irrelevant and forgettable films. – Feature film and TV producer

Miley has the “It” factor…which is something Selena lacks

Miley is a force to be reckoned with. If she applies the same dedication to her work during and after this time of transition, she will keep selling out stadiums and movie theaters. — Feature film director

The bottom line? Sex sells and Hollywood is a business

This “cool kid image” Miley and Taylor are projecting is like gas on the popularity fire. I’d hang out with them! — TV casting director

Being a good girl might not be good for ticket sales, but it certainly helps book jobs! Studios want to know the starlets they cast are trustworthy and dependable

There is definitely a market for the wholesome young starlet, but more than that it shows that she has a good head on her shoulders and is thus likely to take her work more seriously and understand the importance of not wasting the opportunities she has been given. – Director

I think it is important to establish a difference between an on-screen persona and personal lifestyle choices. For Miley, the promiscuous outfits don’t carry over into a hard-partying lifestyle so she can still be on top of her game and make appealing music. But for Taylor, the trashy outfits are only the beginning. It points to choices that will eventually damage her career – if you are out all night partying then you can’t prepare for your meeting with a director at ten o’clock the next morning. — Director

You are right about Selena being every mothers dream child. She should not listen to the people in Hollywood who want her to change. Her fans like her just the way she is!

I honestly think these ‘experts’ are stupid. You know the reason I STOPPED liking Miley Cyrus? BECAUSE of the slutty photos, the pole dance, and the revealing outfits she wore in Can’t be Tamed (which, imo, is a really stupid song). I like Selena, she is a great, beautiful young actress, and I hope she stays the way she is.

I agree with this 100%

These “experts” are idiots. Selena Gomez is beautiful, talented and sweet. She also happens to be my favorite actress. Parents are complaining because they have no one for their children to look up to. Yes, you do, and her name is Selena Gomez. Miley Cyrus and Taylor Momsen can learn A LOT from Selena. Keep doing what you’re doing, girl. We <3 you.

Selena does NOT need to become a whore or something like Miley or this other girl! She is beautiful, Selena has a very classy sexy look. I do not want to see such a WONDERFUL girl go down the path so many other actresses have gone down. Selena, to me, is going to go places WITHOUT having to belittle herself.

I think when she gets older, she’ll be the classy kind of sexy. Not the trashy kind of sexy.

I can name dozen of actresses who aren’t what the media considers sexy or out there who have very successful careers. Natalie Portman, Reese Whitherspoon, Rachel McAdams, Amy Adams, Amanda Seyfried, to name a few.
She doesn’t need to sex her image up like Miley and Taylor.
It’s uncomfortable enough as it is.

I find this disturbing, a bunch of grown people getting together and talking about a young girl ‘sexing’ up her career. Honestly?

What? You don’t need to sex yourself up to have a good career. I really respect her for being one of the few girls who don’t feel the need to sex up there image to be sucessful. She already has a good career at the moment with her music and acting so I don’t see the need to be even worrying about it to be honest.

No. She shouldn’t have to pretend to be all edgy and sexy just because “it sells”. Let her grow into it, if she ever wants to. She has all the time in the world, she’s only 18.
She’s clearly in no hurry to become a bombshell just yet.
And honestly, I think they’ll both have descent careers. I kind of agree with the whole Dakota Fanning comparison, too. Don’t care about Taylor Momsen though, she’s…ugh.

I don’t agree with the experts in Hollywood. Leave Selena alone and let her be wholesome please.

This is truly idiotic. From Lindsay to Britney to…, the fastest way for a teen diva to sink her career is to sex it up. This is a joke.

I disagree I think its the other way round. I mean sex sells if your like in your 20’s but she just turned 18. And the thing with Selena is that she can really act and she is taking the movie roles that will slowly but surely see her taken as a serious actress in hollywood. She’s good she will be successful in the long term watch.
