Selena Gomez is getting candid.
According to Entertainment Tonight, the 24-year-old actress executive-produced the Netflix show, 13 Reasons Why, based on a bestselling novel about a teenager who commits suicide after leaving tapes explaining to 13 peers how they played a role in her death.
During a panel on Wednesday, Gomez delved into her connection to the subject matter, referencing her own stint in rehab.
"I think that my [own] high school experience was amplified," she said. "I wouldn't say it was worse, but it made it harder. To be frank with you, I actually was going through a really difficult time when they started production. I went away for 90 days, and I actually met a ton of kids in this place that were talking about issues that these characters are experiencing."
"Whether it was just kids or growing up in the biggest high school in the world, which was Disney Channel, it was also adults that had the audacity to kind of tell me how I should live my life. It was very confusing for me. I had no idea who I was going to be, what I'm still going to become," she added.
Gomez also took the time to reveal how she really feels about social media.
"I can't stand what they're looking at and what they think is reality ... There are 17-year-olds that look older than me and that freaks me out," she said. "We're just so disconnected from people now. Teens just really want [that connection]."
