Selena Gomez Breaks Down in Tears After Receiving Longest Applause at Cannes 2024

Selena Gomez was so moved that she couldn't hold back her tears when her new film received a warm reception at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival.

Currently, Selena Gomez’s film Emilia Perez has received the longest applause at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival, lasting 9 minutes and accompanied by cheers and enthusiastic support. Overwhelmed by the positive reception, Selena Gomez broke down in tears during the film screening.

Emilia Perez tells the story of Mexican drug lord Manitas’s escape. He hires lawyer Rita to help orchestrate his getaway to evade punishment. To eliminate all evidence, Manitas decides to undergo gender reassignment surgery and live a new life. However, deep down, the drug lord has long wanted to become a woman.

In the film, Selena Gomez plays the wife of the main character Manitas del Monte (played by Karla Sofía Gascón). Critics have praised her performance, applauding her for portraying both the strong and vulnerable aspects of the character.

Selena Gomez said she was immediately drawn to the script. She shared, “This is a captivating, heartbreaking film that truly moved me. I also love the songs in the film. I find them really wonderful.”

Recently, Selena Gomez has temporarily set aside her singing career to focus on acting. Last year, she drew attention with her role in the comedy series Only Murders in the Building. She also served as a producer for the series Wizards Beyond Waverly Place, a spin-off of Wizards of Waverly Place. Her next project is expected to be a biographical film about the famous singer Linda Ronstadt, which is currently in production.
