Selena Singing in Don Juan DeMarco | Video

We Bet You Probably Forgot That Selena Was in This Johnny Depp Movie

Selena Quintanilla is a legend, but despite the fact that the Queen of Tejano remains beloved by Latinos everywhere, there are still some things even the biggest Selena fan might not know. Like, for instance, that she was in a movie with Johnny Depp and Marlon Brando. That's right — Selena, who was known for her bright-red lipstick, had a small role as a mariachi singer in Don Juan DeMarco.

Stepping out of her usual onstage outfits and into a full-fledged mariachi costume, Selena sang her heart out in the minute-long scene set in a restaurant. Never seen it? Press play above to watch the rare clip from the film, which was sadly released one week after her untimely death 21 years ago. Then, listen to our curated playlist of Selena's best songs.
