Selena Gomez got quite a scare from Leatherface during her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres show.
The host decided to play a prank on the 20-year-old actress, star of the recent animated comedy Hotel Transylvania. As Ellen was chatting Selena Gomez up about her boyfriend Justin Bieber, a man dressed as Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre sneaked up on the so-called horror movie aficionado, the Daily Mail reported.
The Selena Gomez Leatherface scare was masked well by Ellen, who tried to coax some information about Bieber from the star. After getting a short answer — “He’s good” — Ellen asked again about how he’s really doing.
“He is doing really, really, well,” Selena Gomez said. “We go to Disneyland a lot, he likes it, but we go to Knott’s Scary Farm [seasonal event at Knott’s Berry Farm, California] because that’s my favorite.
“I’m the kind of person that likes to get scared – but I’m covering my eyes and ears the entire time.”
Little did Selena Gomez know that she had a Leatherface scare coming her way in just moments. Someone in the costume burst out, brandishing a chainsaw at the obviously startled star.
“I’m never coming back,” Selena Gomez joked.
Aside from her trip to Ellen, Selena Gomez has been in the news for her show of support for a bullied Michigan high school student Whitney Kropp. The girl had been selected to the homecoming court at her high school, but later learned it was a cruel joke by classmates who wanted to make fun of her.
Selena Gomez sent Kropp a tweet of support this week, telling the girl that she truly deserved to be part of the Homecoming court.
