Selena Gomez Hangs Out With Her Idol Jennifer Aniston (PHOTO)

While other young celebs may opt for more scandalous older women to idolize, Selena Gomez has sweetly declared that the person whom she truly looks up to is someone she has been in awe of since she was a child: Jennifer Aniston. The two proved they are buddies during a party and viewing of the 45-year-old star's film Cake when Selena cozied up to her -- and then couldn't stop gushing about her afterward.


After attending the event, Selena posted this adorable black-and-white photo of the two on her Instagram page, along with the caption "I have not only been following her career as a fan since I was 8 and now get to watch her completely transform in her new movie CAKE, I have gotten to have real conversations with such a real heart, made my entire year. #cake #goseeit"

Selena, 22, confessed that the first time she met Jen -- back in 2013 -- she "ran away" from her because she was "terrified of her." Awwww. I'm betting Jennifer has taken Selena under her wing and that the younger star will certainly be able to profit from her experiences -- both in show business and with men and high-profile relationships.

I love that Selena is reaching out to her female friends and focusing on her friendships and herself -- hopefully, to get her mind off of you-know-who. She always seemed like a down-to-earth girl who would share a lot in common with equally grounded Jen.

What do you think of this new friendship between Selena Gomez and Jennifer Aniston?
