The 'Only Murders in the Building' actress expresses her gratitude for having people in her life who 'have great taste,' which has allowed her to learn and evolve over the years.

AceShowbiz - Selena Gomez, the 31-year-old actress and singer, has had an illustrious career marked by remarkable projects, profound growth, and a solid support system. In a recent conversation with Variety, Gomez opened up about her past and current endeavors, shedding light on how her inner circle has played a pivotal role in her journey.

Gomez expressed her gratitude for having people in her life who "have great taste," which has allowed her to learn and evolve over the years. "It's nice to have guidance from others who would be amazing to work with, whether in writing or production," she said. Among those guiding lights is her mother Mandy Teefey, 48, who was instrumental in helping her secure a role in the 2012 A24 cult classic film, "Spring Breakers".

"Spring Breakers", written and directed by Harmony Korine, features Gomez alongside Ashley Benson, Vanessa Hudgens and Rachel Korine as college friends who head to Florida for spring break. Despite their limited funds, they rob a restaurant for cash and are bailed out of jail by a drug dealer named Alien, played by James Franco. Reflecting on this unconventional project, Gomez shared, "It's a project [she's] proud of despite its uniqueness."

More than a decade after "Spring Breakers", Gomez continues to draw on the tastes and influences of those around her. Her current project, "Emilia Perez", showcases this perfectly. Directed by Jacques Audiard, the film features an ensemble cast including Zoe Saldana, Edgar Ramirez and Karla Sofia Gascon. "Working with Zoe [Saldana], Edgar [Ramirez] and Karla [Sofia Gascon], we often can't believe he is directing us," she remarked. "Even when he gave me directions about being sad, I was just so happy."

"Emilia Perez" follows the stories of three women who bond through their traumatic experiences within Mexico City's cartel. The film won the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, and its female ensemble cast was collectively honored with the Best Actress award. Speaking on her experiences, Gomez noted, "Working with people like Zoe, Karla and Jacques is a privilege, and I believe hard work pays off."

Despite the unpredictable nature of the film industry, Gomez remains hopeful and passionate. "This is my true passion, and I hope for more opportunities in the future, but you never know with this crazy business," she concluded. With film and TV as her cherished outlets, Gomez continues to view her career and life as a collective gift, influenced and guided by those who surround her.
