The 21-year-old singer-actress revealed on Wednesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live that she had a crush on one of her Rudderless co-stars long before she knew they’d be working together…
So who was it?! Billy Crudup! Apparently, Selena fell for the now 46-year-old actor after seeing him as guitarist Russell Hammond in 2000’s Almost Famous.
“I had a crush on him,” she admitted, giggling. “I went through my whole Almost Famousphase, so I was like Penny Lane for a good month—I wore the outfits and had the hair and the glasses…and then, I found out I was going to be a part of the movie [with Billy] and it took me a minute at first, because I kind of had a little bit of a crush on him!”
Jimmy Kimmel asked Selena if she told Billy about her crush. “No, gosh, no,” she answered emphatically. “Well, evidently I’m telling him now…I don’t have to do press with him anymore, so it’s fine.”
“And the crush is over now that you’ve gotten to know him?” the late-night host quipped.
“Um, no, what are you saying?” Selena replied with a grin. “No, no, he’s a great guy. He’s completely awesome. We had the best time.”
In other words, sorry Jelena shippers: Selena’s still got a crush on Billy! TheirRudderless roles were far from romantic, though. In the flick, Billy plays the father of Selena’s character’s late boyfriend, who are both in the process of grieving his untimely death.
Rudderless hits theaters Friday.
