Selena Gomez's 'Wizards of Waverly Place' co-stars pick on her.

The 17-year-old actress - who was discovered by Disney in 2004 and plays lead character Alex Russo in the hit show - is close to everyone on the set of the hit show and says they feel like a family.

She explained: "When the cameras are not rolling we are definitely like a family. We're constantly like picking on each other and talking.

"I think the person I'm closest to would definitely have to be Jennifer Stone, who plays my best friend Harper Finkle on the show."

However, Selena - who recently ended her romance with Joe Jonas - admitted while shooting upcoming film 'Ramona and Beezus', she got on with one co-star particularly well.

She explained: "Josh Duhamel - oh yes, very nice. He's so cute!

"Working with Josh Duhamel was just amazing. He's so funny and so sweet, and he just made it very comfortable on set. He plays my uncle actually."

Despite thinking Josh - who is married to Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie - is "cute", Selena recently revealed she is happy being single.

She explained: "I'm very much single, I'm dating myself now - I think if you don't love yourself first, no one else will love you."
