Selena Gomez almost missed first Disney audition due to shyness

'Come & Get It' superstar Selena Gomez has revealed that she wasn't always as confident as she is now and almost missed her first audition because she was so nervous.

Speaking about her shyness, the hitmaker explained that meeting with executives at Disney was incredibly overwhelming although she was lucky and won a leading role on 'Wizards of Waverly Place':

"I was actually really shy as a child. My first audition did not go well. I was very awkward. It was in front of a bunch of suits at Disney and I definitely felt I blew it. It took me a long time to let go."

Gomez recently admitted that accepting the acting job on 'Spring Breakers' was a bold move as it was such a transition from doing child-friendly television to an adult rated movie: "This opened my eyes and made me more comfortable in taking risks. I'm excited just to look at what's out there and take the next step and do a couple of different roles, whatever they are."
