Selena Gomez and her “Rudderless” director/co-star dropped by the Variety Studio in Park City to discuss their new music drama.
After Billy Crudup and director William H. Macy described the new movie to Variety editor Stuart Oldham, Gomez went on to talk about her recent dramatic roles onscreen, from “Spring Breakers” to “Rudderless,” and how she doesn’t want to be known as a Disney star anymore.
“It’s easy to do the next teen film,” she said. “I don’t want to be a part of something like that.”
Macy later praised Gomez, who also sings in the movie, for her performance in “Rudderless” and how well she adapted to the dramatic role.
During the interview, hundreds of fans of the pop star/actress eagerly waited outside while some even tried to break into the lounge while the cameras were rolling.
