Get in line, boys! Selena Gomez wants a new boyfriend, and she recently reached out to a few famous friends to help her out. With a little help from pals Paul Rudd and Olivia Wilde, Selena hopes she’ll finally land a good guy!
Selena Gomez, 22, has had her fair share of rough relationships, but with a new mindset, we’ve learned the singer is ready to dive into the dating world again. And she’s hoping her A-list friends like Olivia Wilde, 31, and Paul Rudd, 46, will help her find her match!
“I just spent the weekend in Kansas with Paul Rudd, Olivia Wilde, Jason Sudeikis and Johnny Knoxville,” Selena said on SiriusXM Hits 1’s The Morning Mash Up on June 22. “I was like, ‘Guys, lets talk about some dates!’ That’s kind of my approach. When I meet cool people like them, I want what they have.”
We have to agree with Selena — getting some advice from Olivia and Paul may be a smart move. While she admits in the interview she “never met half of them” before, they hit it off from the start.
Wait, so why were they all together in Kansas? Well, Selena attended the Big Slick Celebrity Softball Game on June 19, where she met up with those familiar faces. The charity event is actually an annual event that’s put on by a handful of Hollywood actors and it benefits Children’s Mercy Hospital. Not only did Selena meet some new friends at the event, but she even showed off her athletic side by joining in during the softball game.
Before the big game, Selena met up with Olivia and the rest of the gang at the children’s hospital, where they brightened up some young kids’ lives. The hospital took to Twitter to post a photo of Selena and Olivia, while writing: “Little Chase enjoyed a fun surprise this morning: Playtime with @oliviawilde & @selenagomez! #BigSlickKC @BigSlickKC.”
Hopefully Selena bonded with the group enough for them to want to help her out in the dating department. As far as if she’s falling for anyone right now, Selena quickly shut that rumor down during her SiriusXM interview. “No… honestly, I am really happy,” Selena said.
