An unlikely starring duo for the big screen, but Selena Gomez and Ethan Hawke’s budding friendship was evident on the red carpet last night.
The pair were on hand for the California premiere of their latest flick ‘Getaway’ and were chatting and smiling as they posed for photographs.
Gomez, 21, wore an Asian-inspired patterned dress while her co-star, 42, rocked a fitted suit.
The pair became good friends on the 'Getaway' set with Gomez revealing she has taught Hawke how to 'twerk'.
"The only thing that's new about that is the word!" Hawke told E! News.
"People have been shaking their ass [forever]."
Hawke said he learned a lot from the young actress.
"What are things I've learned from Selena Gomez? It's like my summer report!," he laughed.
Gomez had a slightly more serious outlook on what Hawke taught her on the set.
"More than anything I loved hearing his stories because he's been doing this for a while," she said.
"So I was very wide-eyed when he would tell a lot of stories because it was interesting, and he doesn't realize when you speak," she said, looking at Hawke, "you use a lot of words of wisdom."
The Warner Bros film follows Brent Magna (Hawke) who is pitted against the clock when his wife is kidnapped by a mysterious villain.
He must get behind the wheel of a young woman’s (Gomez) car and takes her on the high-speed race.
Gomez travelled to the California premiere after attending the MTV VMAs in New York on Sunday night.
The actress and singer sat next to her friend Taylor Swift for the event.
Courtney Solomon’s ‘Getaway’ is due for release in the UK and Ireland on October 4.
