Chris Perez Watched ‘Selena’ For The First Time And Shared His Reactions As He Watched It
Chris Perez recently watched “Selena” for the first time and he gave everyone a front seat to his emotional experience. Perez took to Facebook and gave everyone a play by play on what was happening with some of the most iconic scenes of “Selena.” It’s as sweet and insightful as one would think.
Here’s how he kicked things off:
“Guess what just started on the Lifetime tv channel…yup. Gonna grab a bottle of wine from the kitchen and sit through the movie in it’s entirety for the first time (besides the premier…where my eyes were closed half of the time),” Perez wrote. “Wish me luck. This is gonna be surreal. ?”
From the start, Perez seemed very weary and emotional about watching the life of his late wife.
“Ugh, don’t know if I can do this,” Perez wrote. “The TRUE test will be when my ‘character’ comes out. ?”
He did have some fun with it, like when he recognized a joke that A.B. Quintanilla would totally tell.
That is so cute.
He even confirmed that the band talked about the “bumper story” after he joined the band.
“I heard about the ‘bumper story,'” Perez wrote. “That happened before I was in the band. #Funny #AnythingForSelenas” Anything for Selenas, indeed.
And then Perez, the character, came on screen. It got real.
“Here…we…go…,” Perez wrote.
He was even very humble about his portrayal.
“Wow…,” Perez wrote. “I was HOT! LOLOL!!!!!! ?”
Perez then gave all Selena fans an incredible scoop about the famous pizza scene.
“Yup. She LOOOOOOOOVED pizza…this scene coulda been a lil more heavy,” Perez wrote. “Here’s where we first said ‘I love you’ to each other. My head was spinning.” ? ? ?
He cleared up some inconsistencies with the overall storyline.
“She always made me nervous….who ‘dances’ nest to Selena? LOLO!!!! ?,” Perez wrote. Then, it got real. CHHTT!!!!!! And it was Ricky (not Joe) that busted us. (Sorry Rick…my bad).”
Clearly he was moved by some of the inside jokes that the two had.
“The, ‘he hardly talks’ part is right,” Perez wrote. “You have to get to know me. ?”
The room trashing scene? Perez totally owned up to it.
“Room trashing happened….Oh God,” Perez lamented. “Not one of my prouder moments. But I paid THOUSANDS in damages. Lesson Learned. She…was…PISSED.”
And then he gave all the men reading some advice on how to handle your less than valiant moments.
“But…you know what? When you mess up bad, pay for your mistakes AND do a great job after?????,” Perez wrote. “NO ONE can dispute your talent. NO EXCUSES.”
He also pointed out that they were actually married before the whole stage collapse incident. *
“We were married by this point,” Perez wrote. “Movie doesn’t show that.” #Shade
And, of course, he told us what all the band members felt during the concert.
“That was crazier than the movie shows,” Perez admitted. “I thought we were not gonna make it out.”
As the movie neared the end, Perez gracefully bowed out, most likely because it would be too painful to relive her death.
“And here’s where I think I have to leave the party….It was good hanging out with you guys tonight and being able to ‘talk’ with you all,” Perez wrote to his followers. “Until next time….ENJOY THE REST OF THE MOVIE! ?”
At the end, he gave Jennifer Lopez a shout out for her performance and let us know he just can’t watch the end of the movie, because of course.
“I’ll tell you what… Jen did a great f!@#king jobs. Super proud,” Perez wrote. “Will not watch the ending of the movie. G’night everyone….one last time, LOL!”
