Nicola shared insight into how she first got close with Selena during an interview with Cosmopolitan from March 2023.

“I had met her once in passing a few years ago, and then we all went to this event in September, the Academy Gala,” she recalled. “We just clicked and had the best time. And then we became super, super close. I feel like she’s my soul sister. I love her so much.”

Nicola added, “She’s truly one of the most amazing people I’ve ever met in my whole life. The kindest person ever. Truly, her heart is gold. I feel like I’ve known her forever.”

During the same Wondermind interview, the actress told Selena why she thinks they immediately clicked.

“I think we speak the same love language where it’s like, we never really go out in L.A., we are with our six dogs now, we’re always working or with the dogs,” Nicola explaned. “And when we’re hanging out, it’s always like sleeping over with Gracie [Teefey] and Brooklyn’s cooking, we’re watching a movie — and that’s the best.”
