This is too good. Selena Gomez revealed during an interview with BBC Radio 1 that the man underneath the Barney & Friends costume was super hot. She and pal Demi Lovato starred on the series in the early 2000s and although they were young, they could appreciate the hunk.
“He was [hot]. Very much so,” the “Wolves” singer said, adding that she remembers she and Demi would comment on how attractive he was.
“You have to be very fit to do that because it’s 50 pounds of costumes,” Gomez continued. “So he’d take it off and he’d have his muscles and he’s sweating and we’re like, ‘Okay, we are children,’ but it was great.”
While you attempt to google “man under Barney costume” -- which we totally did -- let it be known that there were multiple actors who wore the costume so we may never know.
“The one we got was pretty great,” Selena quipped.
Selena and Demi starred on the show beginning in 2002, after David Joyner left the children’s program.
