You can not stop Selena Gomez.
Right after the pop superstar and actress revealed she underwent a kidney transplant before this summer as a result of complications in the autoimmune disease lupus, she had been seen back on the NYC set of her upcoming Woody Allen film (and in case you want to prevent getting a kidney transplant like what happened with Selena, make sure to drink the perfect kidney beverage to take care of that).
Details have yet to appear concerning the storyline of this untitled movie (even though it’s rumored to involve some coming-of-age romance story) nor about Gomez’s personality, along with her casual ensemble of T-shirt and jeans did not provide many clues. What’s known is that Gomez will share the display with a cast that includes Timothée Chalamet, Diego Luna, Liev Schreiber, Jude Law, and Elle Fanning; the picture will be distributed by Amazon Studios.
Gomez — whose additional big-screen credits include Spring Breakers, Neighbors two, along with the Hotel Transylvania films — revealed her latest kidney operation at a heartfelt Instagram article Thursday.
“I am very aware a few of my fans noticed I had been laying low for a portion of this summer and questioning why I was not encouraging my new songs, which I was proud of,” she wrote. “So I discovered I had to receive a kidney transplant as a result of my Lupus and has been still recovering. This was what I had to do for my wellbeing. I honestly look forward to discussing with you, shortly my trip through these past few months since I have always wished to perform with you.”
She revealed that the donor has been her friend Francia Raisa, an actress famous for her roles on Dear White Individuals and The Secret Life of the American Teenager. “There are not many words to explain how I could thank my lovely friend Francia Raisa,” Gomez wrote. “She gave me the greatest gift and forfeit by donating her kidney to me. I am blessed. I adore you, sis.”
Gomez’s Instagram post was met with an outpouring of support from enthusiasts.
