Real ones will know how these two child-stars-turned-Hollywood royalty are longterm bestie goals. Picture the scene: you’ve just arrived home from school and you’re tuning into Disney Channel so as not to miss a second of Gomez in Wizard’s of Waverly Place, or remember when we all collectively went mad for Hudgens as Gabriella Mortez in the High School Musical franchise? Ah, simpler times.
From then, the pair went on to co-star in 2012’s Spring Breakers, have been spotted shopping together in Paris, talk about giving each other advice – and even helped each other avoid awkward ex encounters. At the 2015 Met Gala, when Vanessa helped Selena when confronted with her ex, Justin Bieber.
“She’s one of my best friends and you just want to have your girlfriend’s back, so that’s what I did… We didn’t, like, try to avoid him or anything. I mean, no one really wants to see your ex-boyfriend,” Vanessa told Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen.
And now, fans are feeling nostalgic for Hollywood’s most adorable celebrity friendship, after Selena and Baby V reunited at the 28th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday 28th February.
Fans are delighted at the reunion, with some even speculating about a possible collab between the two. One fan wrote on Twitter: ‘can u convince them to do a song together pretty please’, with another referring to them as ‘childhood icons’.
We love to see our fave childhood stars reunited. Now, where’s the track, Selena and Baby V?
