Jake T. Austin chatted with MTV about his costar and friend Selena Gomez.

 ‘She’s a very talented actress for her age and she’s a really sweet and nice girl. She’s got so much going on, it’s amazing how she’s able to stay grounded..

..and keep sight of everything that’s important. She’s my good friend so we talk about stuff and I talk about stuff with David and everybody. We all have different relationships with each other.’

On being less famous than Selena: ‘You’d recognize my face sometimes, but, you know, I’m not really in that so much, which I’m kind of happy for. I’m happy I’m a little more on the DL so I’m able to go to school and, you know, do those things, which I also find very important.

On Selena dealing with tabloids: ‘She’s a teenage girl. All girls like reading those magazines and going to the websites and all that. But, yeah. I mean, everyone gets stressed out.’

Celebrity Visits to Disneyland Revealed

Previous cast members from the Disney theme parks dished on their celebrity experiences and the demands that they had. Below is censored versions of their quotes, but feel free to read the original text here.

Miley Cyrus: I’ve never seen her though the stories are endless. She would ask for rides to be closed down for her, and would ask to ride again. One of the cast members told her she couldn’t ride Big Thunder twice in a row but the manager on duty told him Miley was allowed to ride as many times as she would like. 

Another cast member added: Miley was really nice on her Sweet Sixteen birthday party. She had a lot of security, but rightfully so as everyone was trying to get to her. She was with a large group of family and friends but they were all smiling and seemed to have a great time!

Celine Dion: She was the first celebrity I ever saw in Disney. Came back 3 days in a row and rode the ride like 5 times each day. I dispatched her log and had no idea. I got my bump out from work and they were talking about it and I was like WHAT CELINE DION IS HERE?! And they looked at me like “really?” I dispatched her log! I ran down stairs and watched her come back making some strange hand signals to a small black child next to her. She wanted us to shut down the ride but we declined. The ride wasn’t busy anyway and no one recognized her.

Mitchel Musso: My friend/roommate worked Food and Beverage in Hollywood Studios when a posse of Mitchel Musso people came in with him and one of the people with him was just spilling dirt about the kid – He doesn’t actually sing. He’s a totally rude to everyone. And he’s rather short in person lol.

From another cast member: [Mitchel] came and when celebrities arrive we have a special parking lot for them and a van that takes them backstage Disney into the parks. He arrived speeding in his white nice car and seemed like he was above everyone else. While he didn’t act like someone representing Disney in my eyes, I have heard from female workers that he was very nice to them.

Dwayne Johnson “The Rock”: Not a big story but he’s awesome….I didn’t see him though. He went on Big Thunder Mountain, had his own train esspecially due to the fact he is VERY recognizable. EVERYONE was freaking out, woman were trying to climb over the gates…after they got everyone settled they put him in the last row, he turned around and did his famous eyebrow and caused everyone to freakout! I thought that was awesome.

Dylan & Cole Sprouse: They are kids but not well mannered, they literally pushed people out of their way to get into the log. Really? Is it nesscesary to PUSH people to get onto a ride….

From another cast member: They were not the most ideal child celebrities to work with, but at the same time they were 15 years old at the time, and I’m sure most people their age in their position would act the same way. They were just young boys enjoying the perks of being a Disney actor.

Demi Lovato: I was in charge of Alice In Wonderland when Demi and her family/friends came to ride the attraction. She was with her little sister who is also an actress and while her little sister was really excited, Demi hid behind sunglasses and was quiet most of the time. Once on the ride though she seemed to have a great time, she probably just didn’t want to be recognized.

Other smaller stories:

Jake T. Austin took off his shirt on Splash Mountain because he didn’t want to get it wet.

Corbin Bleu’s favorite ride is Big Thunder Mountain and loves to sit in the last row.

Billy Ray Cyrus rode on Big Thunder Mountain alone and refused to ride Splash Mountain.

Kyle Massey: Went to Epcot at WDW with three girls, jumped the bars to lines and tried to fit all four of them on a two seat ride.
