If you ever get the feeling that there’s no one in the world that’s squeaky-clean with a career like that of a Hollywood star then you might want to rethink that and take a look at Selena Gomez. She’s been on the scene since she was 7 years old and has been an absolute angel to just about everyone she’s been around, proving that she’s just too good at times no matter what. She did suffer a bout of anxiety not too long ago and was forced to step away from the spotlight for a while, but even when she came back and made an appearance she made an impassioned plea to her peers and to anyone watching that she wasn’t all about the glitz and the glam, she wanted people to know that she has a great deal of heart as well. You might not believe in the purity of people in this day and age but it does still exist.
Here are a few of Selena’s movies that can be called some of her best.
5. Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising
She didn’t get a lot of exposure in this one but she did manage to kick off the whole reason why Chloe Grace Moretz’s character decided to start her own sorority. It’s kind of telling that the face of the average sorority hasn’t changed in films over the years since a lot of them still seem like prissy, rather stuck-up individuals that are all about keeping a positive public image but in fact seem to be just a couple of steps away from cult status while claiming to be all about sisterhood and sorority. Ever notice that? It happens with fraternities as well, the exclusive nature of them simply nurtures the idea even if it’s as far from the truth as possible.
4. The Fundamentals of Caring
Ben doesn’t seem like a guy that runs away, he seems more like a guy that cares and then cares too much and has to move on. When he meets Trevor he finds a young man that needs to get out and do something rather than sit inside and just waste away the days. During the trip they meet a couple of people that, through their interactions with one another, teach both Ben and Trevor how to live a full and much more meaningful existence than they’ve been doing as of late, and by the time they return home Ben is ready to move on with his life and Trevor is, well, just Trevor, but in a much more fulfilling way.
3. Hotel Transylvania
Even Dracula seems to be protective of his little girl. Mavis is, by the time the movie gets going, a young woman by vampire standards and is capable of making up her own mind about things. But when she meets Johnny, a young man making his way through Europe via backpack, she becomes enchanted by him in a way that she can’t explain and Drac doesn’t want to deal with. He does just about everything he can in order to get Johnny to go away, but in the end both he and Mavis come to an understanding that they have fallen for one another and despite what Drac wants he has to kind of go along with it.
2. Spring Breakers
In a movie like this you could only expect Selena to be the good girl that would eventually bail on her friends when she feels that things are getting too out of control and aren’t headed in a good direction. While the rest of them go on with the drug dealer that wants to oust his rival and eventually end up getting the dealer killed shortly before executing his guards and the rival dealer, Selena quietly steps out of the film and maintains her good girl image. It’s kind of funny to think she was even in this film to begin with since it doesn’t seem to really be the type of film that she would be seen in to start with.
1. Ramona and Beezus
Ramona is definitely a high-spirited girl that doesn’t do things in a conventional manner and certainly doesn’t fall in line to the beat of anyone else’s drum. The things she does do however tend to backfire at times and even cost her family a bit more than they’d like, but in the spirit of trying to help it’s usually a good idea to at least see that she’s doing what she can for her family. When she decides to run away however her mother is just a little smarter as she makes Ramona’s suitcase a little heavier to make it that much harder. When she sees what her mother packed however she begins to realize just how much she means to her family.
Selena Gomez is the good girl of Hollywood, plain and simple.
