When Selena Gomez‘s ‘Wizards of Waverly Place‘ contract is up, she is
done with TV. Sel told NY Post: ‘I think this’ll be the last series that I do. I’m going to try to pull a Natalie Portman.’ She’s hoping to graduate from ‘dream’ school, Northwestern University:
‘Natalie went to Harvard while shooting ‘Star Wars,’ I don’t know how she did it. I want to have lunch with her and ask her, that seems like a bunch of stress right there.’ On Wizards: ‘I am very happy to get back to playing her! I miss her very much. I’m going to make that transition slowly. I’m not going to..
..immediately go do something that’s way off the charts, because my goal is to keep my audience and have them grow with me.’ Although Sel hasn’t taken the SATs, the home-schooled high-school senior has her heart set on studying theater or journalism: ‘I would love to do [news reporting], go overseas or..
..something.’ On jamming as much work as she can into the 10½ hours a day she’s allowed to work under child labor laws: ‘I don’t really like to rest too much. If I’m resting in LA, I tend to miss home [in Texas] a lot and that’s not good for me, because then I get sad and I miss my family.
I do constantly like to work. I believe that it keeps me going and makes me happy. On dating: ‘I understand it’s a big deal, but I’m not marrying anybody I’m dating when I’m 16, so I don’t think it should matter. Of course, I have crushes and go on dates, but I’m focusing on my work, I don’t need that in my life.’
