Jennifer Stone and Selena Gomez’s life after Disney
Following the show’s finale, Selena Gomez and Jennifer stone have led really successful lives in their respective fields. Stone went on to be a registered nurse and was even one of the front-line responders at the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic. In an interview with Deadline in 2020, the WOWP actress said “It is a double life in a way, because what sane person does these two things that are so encompassing?. I definitely have people coming out of the woodwork being like, ‘Hey, can you feel my leg? I have this weird thing,’ or, ‘I have a headache. Does that mean I have COVID?’ I’m like, ‘No, ……”
She also stated, “As far as balancing everything, it takes a lot of time management and especially having diabetes, I have to be on top of diet, exercise and sleep,”.
Explaining further, she said “As long as I’m really organized with my time, I’m able to balance it all. That’s key. Otherwise, it’s too much if you let everything get haywire but thankfully I’ve mastered keeping all the plates spinning in the air, so to speak.”
Selena continued to bag movie roles such as Spring Breakers, Hotel Transylvania, and A rainy Day in New York. The multifaceted artist also thrived in her music career, releasing over 5 studio albums and multiple EPs. She was also one of the creators and producers of 13 Reasons Why. She recently launched her cosmetics line Rare Beauty. The pair have remained good friends since being on the Disney show, despite their extremely opposite lives.
