momlogic's Julie: My 6-year-old daughter is seriously counting down to July 23, the day that "Ramona and Beezus" hits theaters. Today, momlogic spoke with Joey King and teen superstar Selena Gomez about the family-friendly flick.
momlogic: Selena, you don't have real-life siblings ... how was it having Joey King as your on-screen little sister?
Selena Gomez: Joey was amazing and incredible. I learned so much from her. She is fearless!
ml: Can you tell us about your relationship with your mom?
SG: She is the coolest mom in the face of the planet -- every decision I have ever made, she has been there every step of the way. I admire her and all that she has gone through. She is like my best friend.
ml: Did your mom support your decision to go into acting?
SG: My mom always supported me in anything I wanted to do. I wanted to be a teacher, then I wanted to be a meteorologist ... she was 100 percent supportive. I always picked out my own clothes for auditions, and she was OK with that. She let me make my own decisions and never pushed me into anything.
ml: Do you have advice for moms of teens who DON'T get along as well with their kids?
SG: It's all about listening to each other. Talk to your kids first and really hear what they have to say. It's all about communication! That's what really helped us. At the end of the day, no matter what, she's your family and she's not going to love you any less!
ml: What are some of the things you and your real-life sisters fight about?
JK: We fight about stupid stuff that doesn't even make sense! "Let me see that -- no, I'm not done with that!" Or they were showing someone a text message or a video and I wanted to see it ... stuff like that.
ml: How do you and your mom get along, Joey?
JK: Me and my mom get along greatly. Like Selena said, it's all about communication. We talk it out. If you're mad about something, you've just got to tell her everything you feel. We talk about it ... we resolve it that way!
ml: Has your mom supported your acting career, Joey?
JK: She's been so supportive. Without her, I wouldn't be where I am today and I wouldn't have gotten "Ramona and Beezus."
ml: Why should moms take their kids to see "Ramona and Beezus"?
JK: It's a really touching film -- and it's all about relationships with family. They'll get a great laugh!
SG: It's got really good messages in it. There are many things that parents and kids can talk about after the movie.
