“I was ashamed of the choices I made,” she said. “I didn’t want them to see me in the state I was in because
a) they would have told me the truth, which scares me, and b) I didn’t want to disappoint them.” Gomez starred with Stone (Harper Finkle), DeLuise (Jerry Russo), David Henrie (Justin Russo), Jake T.Austin (Max Russo), and Maria Canals-Barrera (Theresa Russo) in the hit series from 2007 to 2012.
DeLuise responded to Gomez’s vulnerability, saying, “That’s really sweet, and thanks for saying that. We obviously miss you… and I’m glad you’re doing well now.”
Stone also admitted that she felt she was a factor in their friendship falling apart. “I appreciate you saying that, too,” Stone said.”To be perfectly honest, as you know, there were times when I thought… ‘Did we stop being friends because I didn’t tell him what he wanted to hear?’, you know what I mean. Here.” (Hollywood Reporter)
“I appreciate you guys as much and I love you as much as I’ve ever loved anyone,” Gomez added.

After the show ended, Gomez went on to have a successful singing career, starring in films and series. Over the years, she’s been open about her mental health struggles in the industry and even released a documentary last year, Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me, chronicling her mental health journey.
During her time at Wizards of Waverly Place, the actress said she “felt safe and it’s very hard for me to feel and I know you love me for who I am….You really loved me and that’s all I could have asked for. I miss the unconditional trust and connection we had so much.”
