Selena Gomez loves to show off her sexy dance moves, so it should come as no surprise she taught costar Ethan Hawke how to twerk on the Getaway set.

"The only thing that's new about that is the word!" Hawke exclaimed to E! News at the Getaway junket held at the Ritz Carlton in NYC. "People have been shaking their ass [forever]."

"It's true," Selena adds with a laugh.

When the 42-year-old actor was pressed for more details on what he learned from the 21-year-old pop star, Hawke quips, "What are things I've learned from Selena Gomez? It's like my summer report!"

But things get serious when Selena shares what she learned from the actor, for whom she has nothing but the utmost admiration and respect.

"More than anything I loved hearing his stories because he's been doing this for a while," she admits. "So I was very wide-eyed when he would tell a lot of stories because it was interesting, and he doesn't realize when you speak," she says, turning to look at her costar, "you use a lot of words of wisdom."

Clearly, the brunette beauty enjoyed working alongside the Before Sunset star in the flick, which centers on a man named Brent Magna (Hawke), a former race-car driver who is forced to get behind the wheel and follow the orders a mysterious man to save his kidnapped wife.

Hawke hits a road block when he encounters The Kid (Gomez), a young carjacker who tries to commandeer his vehicle, but the twosome find themselves teaming up to take down the evil abductor.

Can't wait to see these two in action!
