Selena Gomez says her boyfriend Justin Bieber is a ''hopeless romantic''.

The 'Wizards of Waverly Place' star admits she was shocked when he hired out the Staples Centre in Los Angeles for a private screening of 'Titanic' because she said she wanted to see it, and she was impressed by his efforts.

She said: ''If I'll share anything with you, it's that he really is a hopeless romantic. I had just mentioned it in the car - all I said is that I really wanted to see 'Titanic' again, and then...''

Selena rose to fame thanks to the Disney Channel, but she admits it is no where near as tough as most people expect it to be as she always got to do things on her own terms.

She added to US Elle magazine: ''Disney is a machine, so people automatically assume that you can't work for the channel unless you act and sing and dance and sign up for all that. That's absolutely not true. I always did everything the way I wanted to do it.''

However it was Jennifer Lopez who inspired Selena to get into Hollywood after she saw her wearing a bustier in the movie 'Selena'.

She said: ''I mad a bustier out of a bathing suit that I dyed black. I put glue and glitter all over it and I wouldn't take it off!''
