Jeff Garlin isn't a fan of Selena Gomez's sexy image.

Selena Gomez certainly started donning sexier styles after leaving Disney's Wizards of Waverly Place, but one of her former co-stars isn't thrilled with her new persona.

Jeff Garlin, who played Uncle Kelbo on the Disney Channel show, had some harsh words to say about the 22-year-old's image during his chat with HuffPost Live. "I worked with [Gomez] for three years, and I love her. She is, at least in terms of what I saw, a great kid," Garlin prefaced.

"But then I see her sexualized. When I see her sexualized, I look at her, and I look at this Ariana Grande... Both beautiful girls, but they have baby fat! They look like kids!"

Speaking on her bikini-clad role in the 2012 film Spring Breakers, the 52-year-old continued, "I'm by myself in the theater, and I couldn't have felt dirtier. Great bikini shots of Selena Gomez? I don't go there. I see the thing, but I see those chubby cheeks. She's a kid. This is disgusting that it's happening so young."

So who's to blame? "It didn't happen 30 years ago. ...I'll blame the Internet. I'm not like clean-cut Johnson. Maybe it's because I know [Gomez]. It's like she's young, she's a kid."

While Gomez's new look has certainly landed her a few admirers, she has her own celebrity crush -- and it's not Justin Bieber. Find out who it is in the video, below:
