Selena Gomez and Joey King have been busy promoting their new movie, Ramona & Beezus.

In the family flick, the duo portray sisters Ramona and Beezus Quimby, characters from Beverly Cleary's beloved books. Selena and Joey recently talked to Boston.com about getting nervous, family and more. Check out a few highlights below.

Selena on her downtime: [I like] sitting on the couch, watching movies, eating junk food, just relaxing with friends and family.

Selena on not rushing into adult roles: I'm still just a kid myself. I wouldn't do a role I don't feel comfortable doing or that my audience wouldn't feel comfortable seeing.

Joey on her similarities to "Ramona": I have a big imagination like Ramona, and the same personality like Ramona as well. And I have sisters, just like Ramona, and I have pets!

Joey on getting nervous: I get nervous all the time. I'm kind of nervous about tonight! My mom says having a feeling inside of you is better than no feeling. I get over it, I say ';Hey! This is what I love to do, and it's fun!' I just need to get over my fears. I kind of like that feeling.

Selena on getting nervous:< When I get really nervous I like to talk about it or ask my mom what to do.

Selena's advice for kids dealing with diversity: Everything happens for a reason, and within each problem there's a lesson you can learn." Don't be afraid that people will laugh or make fun of you, follow your passion, and keep your family close. "At the end of the day, family is all you've got.

Ramona & Beezus opens in theaters on July 23. Selena & Joey will be hanging out in Madison Square Park in NYC tomorrow from 10am to 6pm. Fans will get to hang out with the stars and even help paint a mural inspired by the film.
