Unfortunately, not everyone runs into their European socialite doppelgänger while on vacation in Paris. However, Selena Gomez, aka Grace Bennett, took advantage of the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity in Monte Carlo.
Alongside her stepsister, Meg Kelly, played by Leighton Meester, and BFF Emma Perkins, a bubbly Katie Cassidy, the girls quickly jet off to Monaco after hotel staff mistake Grace for British heiress Cordelia Winthrop-Scott. Fast forward, and the trio is on a whirlwind adventure — complete with a $6 million Bulgari necklace.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been over six years since Monte Carlo premiered and even harder to believe that actresses have been in Hollywood for over a decade. Selena got her big break on Wizards of Waverly Place in 2007 and is now one of the biggest superstars in the world. She even boasts the most popular Instagram account with over 125 million followers. However, fans of the 20th Century Fox rom-com will always have a soft spot for her character Grace.
Not surprisingly, the girls are still close. “I love Leighton. She’s pretty much like my older sister now,” Selena said. “She’s amazing. I feel very lucky to have her and Katie. She’s kind of the leader of the pack and she doesn’t even realize it — that’s the best part.”
And how can we forget about the girls’ love interests in the film — Luke Bracey, Pierre Boulanger, and Corey Monteith, who tragically passed away in 2013. Who thinks it’s time to watch this classic over again?
