Selena Gomez wanted to make sure her first big-screen role was the right fit. Turns out the Disney princesa's young instincts about costarring in Ramona and Beezus, released Friday, were correct. The G-rater -- adapted from children's author Beverly Cleary's beloved 1950s books Ramona the Pest -- stars Joey King as a mischievous girl getting into everyone's business, including her older sister, Beatrice (Beezus is a nickname), played by Gomez. Ramona's innocence and sense of history were the draw. ``I was very nervous and hesitant, to be honest,'' said Gomez, who was in Miami attending the Premios Juventud Awards. ``But these books have been around for generations, and I think we honored that.''
