Gentlemen, start your engines! Selena Gomez, the 21-year-old singer/actress, was all "revved-up" and looking stunning while cruising down the Red Carpet wearing a Vera Wang dress, Jimmy Choo heels, and Lorraine Schwartz jewels, at the "Getaway" Premiere in Westwood, CA last evening (August 26, 2013).
The former Disney starlet appears opposite Ethan Hawke and Jon Voight in the action flick... and at the event last night, Selena and Ethan were hitting it off quite well. She even appeared rather flirty with her co-star on the carpet - but all in good fun. Additional entertainment at the event was provided by an orchestrated car stunt involving a convoy of Shelby Mustangs and assorted muscle cars and trucks whizzing by the theater and adding to the excitement of the evening.
Although Selena has been very busy as of late, she did announce recently that despite her huge success with her debut solo album, which premiered at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, she will be taking a hiatus from singing after her tour. She revealed to US Magazine, "I'm a woman so I change my mind all the time. One day I want to do acting and just that, and then other times I just want to do music and just that, so it changes,.. But this is my last record for a while. I'm going to tour it and then I'm going to just kind of get into acting for a really long period of time, hopefully."
