Selena Gomez Felt She'd Be a Distraction From '13 Reasons Why's Message

Selena Gomez is stepping behind the camera on her latest project, 13 Reasons Why.

Recently, the actress and now producer revealed she knew she wasn’t right for the role of Hannah in the series, a role she was set for when the project was going through its’ first development.

“The older I got — once I left my series [Wizards of Waverly Place], once I started to go for roles that weren’t that age range — it organically began to become a project that I knew I would be behind the scenes with,” Selena added in a new interview with NY Times.

She adds, “I actually like that I’m not in it. To be honest, this book has such a huge following. I wanted it to be credible. If I’m a part of it, that’s going to cause a whole other conversation.”

What did that mean? That she, as Selena Gomez, would be a distraction to the message. “And I knew that.”

13 Reasons Why premieres on March 31st on Netflix.

Selena Gomez Praises '13 Reasons Why' Actress During Netflix Panel

Selena Gomez Praises '13 Reasons Why' Actress During Netflix Panel

Does anyone else remember that when we first heard about the 13 Reasons Why screen adaption, that Selena Gomez was slated to play Hannah?

And even better, that Logan Lerman was rumored to play Clay?

It wasn’t lost during the Netflix panel for the show this week, when Selena explained just why she let the part go and focused on producing.

“I was going my TV series [Wizards of Waverly Place] at the time, so I was maybe 16, 17 and it would’ve made sense [then],” she shared.

However, the adaption plans changed from a movie to a TV series, and so did Selena.

“I can’t picture anyone else being Hannah but Katherine [Langford],” Selena continued. “When you watch her on-screen, she’s just captivating and she just is Hannah. It worked out they way it was supposed to work out.”

You can check out the entire panel for the series below!
