Selena Gomez’s mom advised her against working with Woody Allen

Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez raised eyebrows last year, when news broke she was starring in Woody Allen’s new film A Rainy Day in New York. She’s not the first to do so, either: Ever since Woody’s daughter Dylan Farrow wrote a New York Times open letter in 2014, alleging he molested her at seven years old, many have called for actors — Selena included — to refrain from working with the director.

Even still, Woody’s managed to keep working steadily as a director. Yes, there’s a shift happening in our culture right now surrounding sexual assault — the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements are giving survivors more courage than ever to come forward — but Woody hasn’t really been affected by it. We’re seeing some change, though. Two of Selena’s A Rainy Day in New York costars — Timothée Chalamet and Rebecca Hall — revealed on Instagram this week that they’re donating their earnings from the film to Time’s Up. This isn’t a direct denouncement of Woody, but the implication is pretty clear.

And now people are calling for Selena to give a similar statement — something she might not be ready to give. When Billboard asked her about working with Woody last year, she gave a frustratingly evasive response. “To be honest, I’m not sure how to answer — not because I’m trying to back away from it,” she said. “[The Harvey Weinstein allegations] actually happened right after I had started [on the movie]. They popped up in the midst of it. And that’s something, yes, I had to face and discuss. I stepped back and thought, ‘Wow, the universe works in interesting ways.’”

What’s also interesting is that Selena’s mother, Mandy Teefey, claims she advised her daughter against working with Woody. Here’s what Mandy said on Instagram when a fan asked Selena to apologize for working with Woody:

“Sorry, No one can make Selena do anything she doesn’t want to. I had a long talk with her about not working with him and it didn’t click. Her team are amazing people. There is no fall person here. No one controls her. She makes all her own decisions. No matter how hard you try to advise. It falls on deaf ears.”

This pointed statement comes days after Mandy revealed she is “not happy” about Selena rekindling things with her ex Justin Bieber. Why Mandy chose to make this story public is a mystery, but it certainly puts more fire under Selena to talk directly about the Woody situation. We’ll update this post when (and if) she makes a statement.

Telling Tristan first, naturally, she explained how she had to FaceTime her boyfriend with the news while he was away in Toronto.

“Oh my god. Are you kidding or are you serious?” he asked. Khloé then admitted that she was “serious”, and Tristan started crying.

“Are you crying?” Khloé recalled Tristan asking, before she said: “I’m crying, I don’t know what’s happening”.

Determined to tell their family and friends together, Khloé had to keep the pregnancy a secret for a while.

Ever the investigative sibling, Kourtney raised the alarm. “I think you’ve gained a few pounds,” she told her younger sister. “Have you amped up the eating since [Tristan’s] been back?”

Finally ready to break the news, the happy couple gathered friends and family at Kris Jenner’s house where Tristan told the group they had an “announcement” to make.

“We’re having a baby!” an excited Khloe told the group.

While the family squealed with delight, the ever-brilliant Kourtney remarked: “No wonder you gained a few pounds.”

The episode’s revelation comes just weeks after Khloé gave her first interview since confirming her pregnancy. Appearing on The Ellen Show, the reality star opened up about life as a mum-to-be and even revealed potential baby names.

5 reasons Millie Bobby Brown is the role model we all need in our lives

Millie Bobby BrownLet’s face it, we all want to be Millie Bobby Brown. Not only is she super talented – she acts, raps, AND has an amazing sense of humour – she’s turning out to be quite the role model for young women, despite only being 13!

Just last night, the Stranger Things star shared an important message about beauty with her 12 million Instagram followers, as she reflected on the time she shaved her head for her breakthrough role as Eleven in the hit Netflix series.

“The day I shaved my head was the most empowering moment of my whole life,” Millie wrote. “The last strand of hair cut off was the moment my whole face was on show and I couldn’t hide behind my hair like I used to. The only image I had in my head about what I could possibly look like is Charlize Theron in Madmax.”

She continued: “As I looked at myself and couldn’t see my old self, I realized that now; I have a job to do and that is to inspire other girls that your image or exterior part is not what I think is important. What I find important is caring, loving and inspiring other girls. Thought to share my thoughts during this life changing moment.”

However, this isn’t the only time the teenage actress has shared some inspiring food for thought. Here are five reasons why she’s the role model we all need in our lives…

1. She has a Twitter account dedicated to spreading positivity

2. She regularly offers advice to her fans

3. She isn’t afraid to say it like it is

When asked about her kissing scene with co-star Finn Wolfhard in Stranger Things 2 , she simply said: “I got up and I was like, kissing sucks!”

4. She is a UNICEF advocate

5. She’s forever grateful
