We’ve got the full scoop on what it’s really like to work with Selena on ‘Wizards of Waverly Place!’

Maria Canals Barrera spoke with HollywoodLife.com on the Orange Carpet at the Kids’ Choice Award on April 2, and she dished about her Disney co-star Selena Gomez!

Even though Selena acts so poised and mature all the time, Maria says she is super sweet and innocent on the set!

“There’s a part of her [Selena] because she’s only 18, that’s still that sweet little girl,” Maria reveals.

Maria adds that her costar, Jennifer Stone, 18, is the same exact way. Jennifer comes across as cool, calm, and collected on camera. But behind the scenes, Maria says she’s just an everyday teenager.

And Maria says as a mother of two daughters, she loves to see these teen stars’ true colors shine through! Wonder if Maria ever gives Selena relationship advice about Selena’s BF Justin Bieber?!
