Selena Gomez has been officially single for years now, but when PDA photos of her in character with her Only Murders in the Building co-star and on-screen love interest Aaron Dominguez came out, some fans thought it was a real romance—and harassed Dominguez on social media. He was able to make light of it, and so was Gomez. on some level. But when asked about it by the Los Angeles Times in a new interview, Gomez candidly reflected on how this attention to and commentary on her love life makes it impossible to date.
With Dominguez particularly, “We had just started working together. I honestly thought, ‘No wonder guys don’t want to date me!’ I think people only care because I’m young, and the older I get the less they’ll care. For now it’s a part of the job that I don’t really like. I’m actually grateful that I’m not involved with anyone right now.”
Gomez also addressed the viral photo that came out of her flipping off a paparazzo while working on her show. “Somebody was being disrespectful,” she said. “And I don’t do well with that. Look, I am a very modest person, until you disrespect people. Maybe [it wasn’t] my best moment, but a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. And I felt very okay with being like…‘Don’t talk to people that way!’”
Gomez and Dominguez have been shooting Only Murders in the Building, an upcoming Hulu comedy, in New York City for the past couple months.
Gomez spoke a little about what the show will be like during an Instagram Live last month: “The show is actually really fun,” she said. “It’s kind of a dramedy, so there’s moments that are real and then there are other moments that are complete chaos and hilarious. I’m working with Steve Martin and Martin Short and if you don’t know their work, by the way, they’re pretty amazing people to be around.”
