It seems like Selena Gomez has grown up right in front of our eyes — although one of her former co-stars is not completely happy with what he sees.

In an interview with Huffington Post Live,  Jeff Garlin, who played Selena’s uncle on ‘The Wizards Of Waverly Place,’ opened up about her very mature image.

“I worked with her for three years, and I love her,” he said. “She is, at least in terms of what I saw, a great kid. But then I see her sexualized. I know she was in ‘Spring Breakers’ and all that. By the way, I saw ‘Spring Breakers,’ and I’m by myself in the theater, and I couldn’t have felt dirtier. I went to go see her work, and her work was great.”

However, Garlin admits that it’s hard for him to see young stars like Selena looking so mature at such a young age.

“But the thing is, when I see her sexualized, I look at her and I look at Ariana Grande, both beautiful girls. Really beautiful girls,” he continued. “But they have baby fat. They look like kids. Great bikini shots of Selena Gomez? I don’t go there. I see the thing, but I see those chubby cheeks. She’s a kid. This is disgusting, that it’s happening so young.”

What do you think, Selenators? Do you agree with Garlin?
