Baby-faced cutie Selena Gomez is young, but this tween superstar-turned-adult actress has been around the block a time or three. Born in Grand Prairie, Texas of mixed Italian and Mexican ancestry, Selena was raised by her mother, a working stage actress. She first appeared on screen at age 7, hanging out with the TIT-ular purple dinosaur on Barney and Friends before being recruited by the Disney Channel tween machine. She is a veteran of The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and Hannah Montana, and taped two pilots for Disney before being cast as a lead on Wizards of Waverly Place. Selena made the jump to feature films with the 2010 kid flick Ramona and Beezus, and teased us all grown up and filling out a bikini in Monte Carlo (2011). Will Selena pull an Alyssa Milano and take a sharp turn towards the skinful? We can only clutch our tissue boxes and hope.
