While recently discussing the series with The New York Times, the cover star for Vogue's April issue opened up about why the project hits so close to home.

Had to run up flights of stairs & all I could think of were the brave firefighters climbing the twin towers on 9/11.” The actor eventually deleted the tweet — but not before, as so often happens these days, it was preserved for the general mockery and disgust of the Twitterati.

Selena Gomez is back on social media in a big way.
The 24-year-old singer stripped down to just a blanket, gold thong and a large hoop earring for what looks to be an impromptu photo shoot with celebrity photographer, Mert Alas.
"Beauty and the Beast," Alas captioned the selfie, which has since been deleted, on Thursday morning that was posted to his Instagram.
The super sexy image surfaces the same week that Gomez was spotted cozying up to The Weeknd (Abel Tesfaye), Bella Hadid's ex-boyfriend, during a dinner date in Santa Monica, California. "They came out and they looked so happy," an eyewitness told Et. "They were hugging, kissing, and being super affectionate. Selena was all over him -- hugging him, kissing him. She looked amazing and so incredibly happy and in love."

The "Dangerously" singer spoke out about his "We Don't Talk Anymore" collaborator's recent break from the spotlight, saying that he can totally relate.
"I think it's good and I think it's great that she was taking some time off for herself, because I see it on a much smaller scale," he told MTV UK. "People kind of treating you, who are maybe not necessarily fans, but seeing you as an object and shouting things at you. Real fans won't, like, scream obscene things out at you, but it's important to feel like a human again. So, I think her taking some time off is a really good thing."
