The least-expected friendship ever emerged on Jan. 10 after the Golden Globes when Selena Gomez and Brad Pitt were caught hanging out at an after-party. HollywoodLife.com found out EXCLUSIVELY that Brad is planning to help Selly become the new “it” girl! Here’s the scoop.
Brad Pitt, 52, sees a lot of potential in his The Big Short co-star Selena Gomez, 23, and he’s determined to help her become Hollywood’s new “it girl,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. See why he thinks she’s the next big thing, here!
We’ve been totally obsessing over Selly all year, but it looks like she has a huge new fan, and he’s got a whole hell of a lot of power in Hollywood. Sel and Brad worked on The Big Short together, and when we saw them out on Jan. 10 after the Golden Globes, we started to wonder if they might be discussing working together again, and now we have the EXCLUSIVE answer!
Brad has a lot of faith in the actress-turned-singer, and he’s got a specific role in mind for the gorgeous starlet. “He thinks Selena would be a perfect fit for the Oceans 11 female remake,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Although he can’t exactly hand her a role, he can pull some strings. “He’s not producing the film but has close ties with the film’s director Gary Ross.”
So why does Brad think Selena is so perfect for the remake? “Brad thinks Selena is hilarious and has a quirky side that needs to be explored on the big screen,” the source explained EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. “He thinks she’s the new it girl.” Eep! We agree. Selena was an actress way before she started singing, and while we’re glad she did (because, hello, Revival is AMAZING), we would love to see her get back to her acting roots in a big way.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Do you want to see Selly do more acting, or is she better off focusing on her music? Let us know in the comments below!
