"He's very sweet," Maria Canals-Barerra, who plays Gomez's mother on the Wizards of Waverly Place, told us last night at the L.A. premiere of Waiting for Forever. "I've met him a few times. I can't imagine how difficult it would be for two superstars like that to actually have a budding romance, but I wish them the very best."

She added, "From what I have seen so far he's a nice young man."

Canals-Barrera isn't surprised Gomez, 18, and Bieber, 16, get along so well. "They probably have a lot in common because they come from a regular life and were discovered young to have special talent and passion for singing and acting," she said. "And they became superstars at a very young age, both of them. And I think they have the goods. Some people are kind of like pushed into this business.

"I don't think they were pushed in the business. They were genuinely discovered based on real talent."

Any chance of Mr. Bieber appearing on Wizards? "There hasn't been any official word on that," Canals-Barrera smiled, "but that would be a fantastic idea."
