The Sin City: A Dame to Kill For star recently took a moment to chat with E! News and opened up about working with the brunette beauty, singing Selena's praises while applauding her Rudderless costar for her unwavering work ethic.
"Well, I've worked with Selena Gomez before when she was 15 years old…She's raised from just such a great family," the 31-year-old stunner shared. "Her mom is amazing, she's got such a good head on her shoulders."
"She's a hard worker, she's humble, she's good to her fans and she's always been that way," Chung continued. "And now as a young woman, I miss her as well, I didn't get to see her, but seeing the work, she did such an amazing job. And she's so talented."

When asked if Gomez receives far more flack in the tabloids than she deserves, the Once Upon a Time star didn't hesitate to defend the former Disney darling.
"Yeah, totally, that's a bunch of B.S." Chung insisted. "I mean, her personal life is her personal life…But she's a good woman and she comes from a really good family."
Gomez and Chung's upcoming flick is due for release on Oct. 17.

The follow-up to the 2005 hit based on Frank Miller's famous comics is bound to include loads of wild action scenes, and Chung credits her previous stunt training with helping her prepare for filming.
"I think what it really is is having the experience," she said when asked about the rigorous training required for the flick. "For Sucker Punch, we did fireworks, we did weapons training, so I felt like that was really to my advantage in terms of doing freestyle lifts with the katana, the sword...or shooting a bow and arrow. I really felt like that kind of came in handy."
Still, that doesn't mean that the thesp didn't find herself terrified at times.
"There was this one bit where they like pulled me back, like a slingshot. So two guys are pulling me back like a human slingshot—they let go, and I flew like 20-30 feet and I was supposed to stab my katana towards the camera. It was a cool shot and it was fun to do," she shared before adding, "I don't think there was anything really scary, though."
Talk about a fearless star—both on and off screen! Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is set for release on Friday.
