Selena Gomez & Leighton Meester: New Hollywood BFFs?

By: / August 17, 2010

Teen superstar Selena Gomez has lots of buddies in Hollywood, but the young star says that she has made a famous friend while filming in Europe this summer.

Selena opened up to M magazine about her new friendship with Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester,whom she met while they both filmed Monte Carlo.

From M magazine (via oceanUP):

When I started on the movie, I was just getting to know my co-stars Leighton Meester and Katie Cassidy but we’ve become so close! They’ve experienced much more than me because they’re older so we have long talks and share stories. We’re inseparable! I feel better, like I’ve learned a lot about myself.

The 24-year-old Leighton has experienced a lot in her young life, with many parallels to Selena’s: She’s starred in films and a hit television show with a rabid fan following, and even recorded an album. Meanwhile, 23-year-old Katie has had roles on many hit shows such as Harper’s Island and the CW’s Melrose Place.

The co-stars-turned-pals were spotted filming in France earlier this summer. Click here to see the photos of them filming.

In Monte Carlo, the three actresses play three friends who take a trip to Paris and are whisked away to the posh resort town of Monte Carlo after one of them is mistaken for a wealthy heiress. The film also stars Glee‘s Cory Monteith.

Selena is also friends with Taylor Swift and Demi Lovato but it was rumored that she and Demi had a falling out last year.
