The 81st Annual Academy Awards is still several weeks away, but Selena Gomez already has her pick for the much anticipated prestigious awards show, hoping drama-romance "Revolutionary Road" to win all the gongs. "I love Revolutionary Road. That is the movie I want to take all the awards. I can't even get over it," the Disney star tells US Weekly. She goes on gushing, "Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio just kill it."
Asked if in the days ahead she wants to take challenging roles in Hollywood film industry just like Winslet, she says with assurance, "Yes, absolutely. I love being challenged." About that she explains, "I love the Disney channel, and I always want to keep that relationship because they gave me my start, but I'd love to someday make a transition and do roles that are really challenging for me. I'd like to do comedy, romance, anything."
As for the time being, Selena Gomez is still on board filming Disney's comedy-family-fantasy TV series, "Wizards of Waverly Place." Besides, she is also working on her singing career. "Hopefully I'll finish up in April and debut my album in July," she tells US Weekly. "I'm really excited that people will see a whole other side of me."
Hoping to have a successful career in music, Gomez says she wants to go on tour with her BFF, Demi Lovato. "I'm so happy to be with her," she shares. "We're going to have sleepovers on the bus, and we'll never actually get any sleep!"
