Selena Gomez, the multi-talented 31-year-old star, recently took to Instagram to share a collection of adorable photos with her co-stars Steve Martin and Martin Short from the hit Hulu series, “Only Murders in the Building.” This delightful showcase of behind-the-scenes moments and public appearances captures the trio’s genuine affection and camaraderie, spotlighting the strong bond they’ve developed since the show’s inception.
In her Instagram post, Selena included snapshots from various moments – from a cozy picture of her snuggled up to Martin, 78, as they walked, to a playful one where she’s seen making bunny ears behind her co-stars’ heads. The series of photos also features heartwarming embraces at different events, and a particularly endearing image of Selena laughing alongside Short, 73, on a red carpet. Her caption succinctly yet affectionately read, “Trio.”
The post was warmly received, with the show’s official Instagram account commenting, “BFFs ❤️,” and Hulu echoing the sentiment by writing, “this friendship .”
Since joining forces in “Only Murders in the Building,” Gomez, Martin, and Short have formed an endearing bond that transcends their on-screen chemistry. In an interview with TheWrap, Selena expressed her admiration for her co-stars’ comedic prowess, stating, “They’ve helped sharpen my skills. I hope to be as funny as they are one day. They are really gifted at creating laughter out of thin air, and I deeply admire that.”
Selena initially had reservations about potentially feeling isolated on set, given her co-stars’ legendary status in comedy. However, those fears were quickly allayed as she was warmly embraced by the duo. “The moment I got on set, they made me feel included and valued my opinion,” she reflected, adding, “Now, they’re my guys. Some of my best friends are 70-year-olds.”
Martin Short also shared his initial apprehensions before meeting Selena, confessing to us, “I had never met Selena. I was driving to work and thought, ‘What if she is a nightmare?’ But she’s been anything but. She’s professional, always on time, knows her lines, and is just so talented. It’s fabulous working with her.”
This Instagram post from Selena Gomez isn’t just a collection of photos. It’s a heartfelt celebration of the unexpected and enriching friendships forged on the sets of TV shows, proving that genuine connections can form in the most unexpected of places.
