Selena Gomez on acting: 'I haven't touched the surface yet'

Superstar Selena Gomez has revealed that she can't wait to progress with her acting career. 

During a new interview with Variety magazine, the beauty confessed that she really wants to show the world what she can do as an actress because she's only just beginning to unveil her ability:

"I think there's a lot for me to explore. I'm in a place with my music where I've gone through this transition and I feel with this album (Revival) I've been able to grow as an artist. But I feel like in acting, I haven't touched the surface of what I'm able to do. I hope I can continue to grow and get better. I know that's going to take a lot of time, especially if music continues to do what it does."

She went onto talk about her role as a hitchhiker in 'The Fundamentals of Caring', alongside Paul Rudd and Craig Roberts, and confessed that she struggled to get the part because of people's preconceived ideas about her:

"My manager sent me the script and I completely fell in love with the script and said I want to audition. She said, 'I mentioned your name and I'm trying to do this surprise situation, so you can go in and nobody knows that it's you.' So Rob (Burnett, the director) didn't know who he was going to meet."

"I knew it would be difficult for him to see me in that role. He had a lot of hesitation. I auditioned two more times after that. It was one of the parts that I fought for. I knew other people were reading for it. So it feels good to feel like I earned it."
