Usually, there are nonstop rumors about Selena Gomez’s love life, but hardly about her acting career. Since the singer was spotted with actor Brad Pitt at a Golden Globes after-party, media outlets are claiming that he wants to revive her career.
According to the Hollywood Life, Brad Pitt has some big plans for Selena Gomez. He wants her to star in an all-female remake of Ocean’s Eleven, according to an alleged insider. It’s been a while since Gomez, 23, has been making movies, but Pitt, 52, is set on making the pop star become a movie star once again. He wants to work with her on the all-female remake.
“He thinks Selena would be a perfect fit for the Ocean’s Eleven female remake. He’s not producing the film but has close ties with the film’s director Gary Ross.”
The rumors about an all-female Ocean’s Eleven are true. According to the Guardian, Sandra Bullock will play the lead character of Danny Ocean. She will also be reuniting with her BFF and co-star George Clooney, who is also involved in creating the reboot.
But the reason why Brad Pitt thinks Selena Gomez should also star in the movie is that it will help her become Hollywood’s new “it” girl. Another inside source told Hollywood Life that Brad sees a lot of potential in the Wizards of Waverly Place alum. He is already familiar with her work since the two worked on The Big Short together.
“Brad thinks Selena is hilarious and has a quirky side that needs to be explored on the big screen. He thinks she’s the new it girl.”
Selena Gomez was an actress way before she became a pop star. Now that she’s been recognized for her critically-acclaimed new album, Revival, it’ll be interesting to see if Gomez will go back on her acting roots and take up Pitt on his offer.
The rumors started when Selena and Brad were seen having a deep discussion at the InStyle and Warner Bros. 73rd Annual Golden Globes Post-Party held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday, January 10. The actors were sitting closely together on the couch, away from everyone else.
Selena then shared a photo of herself with the actor along with the caption, “Oh just discussing #TheBigShort,” trying to downplay the acting rumors.
Although it hasn’t been confirmed what the entertainers were actually talking about, there’s no doubt in fan’s minds that it was business related. But Gomez could have just been fangirling over the heartthrob. Prior to attending the Golden Globes after-party, Gomez told People that she would love to have the chance to talk to Pitt because she could stare at him all night long.
“I’m not going to lie, it’s nice to, like, look at all of the hot guys that I admire. Like, I’m trying to find Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt right now.”
According to their IMDb pages, both Selena Gomez and Brad Pitt have very busy schedules for 2016, so it’s unlikely that they will work together anytime soon. But if Selena wants to be taken seriously as a movie star, then she will have to clean up her act first. Rumors are also swirling that the “Same Old Love” singer is a slob when she stays at hotel rooms.
One of Gomez’s assistants revealed that the singer is a secret pig when she stays at luxury hotels. The assistant told Celeb Dirty Laundry that it takes Gomez less than 24 hours to trash a hotel room with makeup stains, ruined bedding, spilled drinks, fast food wrappers, and, of course, her dirty underwear.
“I never expected to see a celebrity’s dirty undergarments, let alone have to pick them up!”
