Selena Gomez Is Joining Elle Fanning In Woody Allen’s Next Movie


Details about the film are under wraps

Selena Gomez is now joining Elle Fanning and Timothée Chalamet in controversial director Woody Allen's upcoming film. The untitled project will be released by Amazon Studios, which Allen previously worked with for Cafe Society, with Blake Lively and Kristen Stewart, and Crisis in Six Scenes, starring Miley Cyrus.

This isn't the first time the singer has tried her hand at acting. Gomez made her big screen debut in Harmony Korine's cult movie Spring Breakers. She also starred in The Fundamentals of Caring and James Franco's In Dubious Battle

She'll be in good company with this A-list cast. Fanning most recently appeared in Sofia Coppola's The Beguiled, and will appear next year in the post-apocalyptic drama Think We're Alone Now. Chalamet has been getting Oscar buzz for his performance in Call Me by Your Name, which premiered at Sundance this year. He'll also appear in Greta Gerwig's directorial debut Lady Bird

While we don't know anything about the plot for the new Allen film, we can assume it involves a lot of unattractive neuroses and probably a relationship between an unsavory man and a young woman. 

Allen's latest film, Wonder Wheel starring Kate Winslet and set in a 1950s amusement park on Coney Island, will debut at the New York Film Festival in October.

Delevingne shared why they chose now

Last week, Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson officially confirmed the rumor that they're dating, with Delevingne posting an Instagram video of the two of them kissing. Now, in a new interview, she revealed why they confirmed the rumors. Basically, it was in celebration of Pride.

In the interview with E! News at the TrevorLIVE Gala, Delevingne was asked why the pair chose this moment to take their relationship public, and she answered: "Because it is Pride, it's been 50 years since Stonewall happened, and I don't know... It's been just about our one year anniversary so, why not?"

Why not, indeed? Delevingne also said that the kissing video was "just a little something," which makes sense. After all, the couple were recently spotted lugging around a kinky sex bench, so some simple kissing must feel pretty elementary.

At the Gala, Delevingne shouted out Benson during her speech too, though not by name. "I also have another very special woman in this room to thank and you know who you are," she said. "She's one of the people who help me love myself when I needed it most and I really needed it. She showed me what real love is and how to accept it, which is a lot harder than I thought." I'm swooning.

"I don't regret it at all. I mean I'm a man, and as a man, you do real things."

In 2017, Atlanta-based artist iLoveMakonnen (or just Makonnen) had already experienced exhilarating career highs and disappointing lows. Drake had hopped on a remix of his viral hit "Tuesday," and then signed him to his OVO Sound label in 2014. Hits like "I Don't Sell Molly No More" and "Look at Wrist" on his first album, I Love Makonnen, put him on track to be the next best thing in rap. Makonnen was part of a class of rappers and producers who were expanding the trap genre to broader audiences. But problems with OVO led to a delay in a follow-up album, and so he parted ways with the label and, later, announced a short-lived retirement from music. Then in January 2017, Makonnen tweeted that he was gay.
