Selena Gomez Reveals The Three Words She Couldn’t Say While Working For Disney

  • The “Only Murders in the Building” star explained during an interview published Wednesday by Vanity Fair that “I wasn’t a wild child by any means, but I was on Disney, so I had to make sure not to say ‘What the hell?’ in front of anyone. It’s stuff that I was also putting on myself to be the best role model I could be.”
  • Gomez, who recently went public with her personal struggles with bipolar disorder and anxiety, said that she has since come to believe that being a good role model is more about being authentic and truthful than about cultivating and presenting a specific image: “Now I think being the best role model is being honest, even with the ugly and complicated parts of yourself.”
  • The actress went on to say that she had worked hard, particularly in recent years, to put distance between herself and who she was while she was working for Disney.
