Selena Gomez has been single for a long time, but when PDA pictures of her in character with her Only Murders in the Building co-star and on-screen love interest Aaron Dominguez surfaced, some fans mistook it for a real relationship, harassing Dominguez on social media. On some level, he and Gomez were able to make light of it. However, when asked about it in a new interview with the Los Angeles Times, Gomez candidly admitted that all of the attention and commentary on her love life makes dating impossible.
“We had only recently started working together,” says Dominguez. ‘No wonder guys don’t want to date me!’ I honestly thought. I believe that people are only concerned because I am young, and that as I grow older, they will become less concerned. For the time being, it’s a part of my work that I don’t particularly enjoy. I’m actually relieved that I’m not in a relationship right now.”
Gomez also discussed the viral picture of her slamming a paparazzo during a taping of her show. She stated, “Someone was being disrespectful.” “And I’m not very good at it. Look, until you disrespect people, I am a very humble person. Maybe it wasn’t my best performance, but a girl has to do what she has to do. And I was perfectly fine with saying, “Don’t talk to people like that!”
For the past few months, Gomez and Dominguez have been filming Only Murders in the Building, an upcoming Hulu comedy, in New York City.
During an Instagram Live last month, Gomez gave a sneak peek into the show, saying, “The show is actually really fun.” “It’s a dramedy, so there are some moments that are realistic and others that are completely chaotic and hilarious. I’m working with Steve Martin and Martin Short, who, by the way, are pretty cool people to be around if you don’t know their work.”
