PARK CITY, Utah - Selena Gomez says working on her film "Rudderless" that's debuting at Sundance - and even dodging paparazzi at the indie film festival - has been an escape from "the everyday madness that I've got to go through."
"I could just wear my own clothes and not have to worry about anything and just be with these cool people," Gomez said in an interview Monday alongside actor-turned-director William H. Macy and the film's star, Billy Crudup.
Macy picked Gomez for a small part in his music-filled directorial debut after seeing her in "Spring Breakers" last year.
"I was stoked," Gomez said. "I was about to go on tour and I knew it was going to be a year long. I kind of get this panic attack when I know I'm not going to be on a set for a year. Just because I do love both a lot."
