"I have not only been following her career as a fan since I was 8 and now get to watch her completely transform in her new movie CAKE, I have gotten to have real conversations with such a real heart, made my entire year," Selena posted on Instagram Saturday, alongside a black-and-white photo of the two locked in a sweet embrace.

This isn't the first time Selena has expressed her admiration for Jennifer.

In 2009, Selena admitted that she's such a big fan of the seemingly ageless actress, that she initially ran away when Jennifer greeted her.

"I was shaking!" Selena told JustJaredJR. "I ran into Jennifer in the bathroom and she goes, 'Hi!' My legs started to shake and I ran. I didn’t know what to do because I freaked out."

She also revealed Jennifer to be her surprising acting inspiration behind her breakout Disney hit The Wizards of Waverly Place.

"I always say that I worship Rachel McAdams as a movie actress but for comedy -- the whole reason I started my show and mannerisms, they were after Jennifer Aniston," she said.

But while Selena seems to only be getting closer to her famous gal pals after splitting with a now bleach blonde Justin Bieber in October, her longtime pal Demi Lovato recently revealed why she's not longer friends with fellow Disney Channel alumnus Miley Cyrus.
