Jennifer Stone Was Inspired By Selena Gomez to Share Her Diabetes Diagnosis

Jennifer Stone is opening up about her struggle with Type 1 Diabetes, thanks to her former co-star Selena Gomez!

The 24-year-old Wizards of Waverly Place star recently got candid about her diagnosis, following Selena‘s announcement about her kidney transplant.

“It always inspires me the way people are transparent about the challenges and the things they face in their life,” Jennifer told IBT.

She went on to share that she was diagnosed with diabetes at age 20 and doctors told her that she was going to have to move home and quit acting.

“I thought that my life was going to change drastically…I was devastated and then I reached the point where I was like, ‘Screw that, that’s not the life I want for myself and I don’t accept that, and I’m not going to let this disease tell me what I can and can’t do with my life,’” Jennifer said.

She added, “I worked hard with my doctors, and I still work hard every day, the disease never goes away. And that’s why I wanted to come forward with this…The only way you can get through it, is just take it one day at a time and know there’s going to be some days that just really suck, but there’s going to be good days too. And with each day, it’s going to get easier and you’re going to learn more and you’re going to figure it out and it’s going to be okay.”

Selena Gomez & Jennifer Stone Are Still Great Friends

Selena Gomez & Jennifer Stone Are Still Great Friends

Some people drift apart after working together for a long time, but that’s not the case at all for Jennifer Stone and Selena Gomez.

The two actresses, who played Harper Finkle and Alex Russo on Wizards of Waverly Place, are still great friends.

“We’ve definitely kept in touch,” Jennifer told J-14 recently. “I love the fact that she is still that down-home Texas girl. You know what I mean?”

“Even with all of the publicity and all of the stuff going on in her life, whether it’s the good or the challenging, she’s always just that girl that grew up in Texas,” Jennifer adds.

“I’m from Texas, too, so I can always get down with a good Texas girl.”

Jennifer also remembered the first time that she and Selena truly hit it off.

“We met at the audition because we read together in the audition. Then, when we really bonded was she came over to my house in Texas for a sleepover,” she recalls. “We watched this scary movie and my dad decided it would be a good idea to go outside and bang on the window.”

Obviously, that scared them to death!

“I think if you can make each other laugh and be scared together, I think that really bonds you,” Jennifer says.

So sweet!
