U.S. actress Selena Gomez, star of the Disney series “Wizards of Waverly Place,” says there was no particular reason for her Twitter post about tough times.

Speaking with People magazine, the 16-year-old actress said she had hoped her fans would learn something from her Twitter page posting of “Tough times don’t last. Tough people do,” People.com reported Friday.

“No specific reason,” Gomez said. “We’re going through lots of things right now, it was a really wonderful saying, and I hoped my fans could get something out of that, because they might be going through something as well.”

Gomez, who has been romantically linked to “Twilight” actor Taylor Lautner, told People she initially learned the saying from one of her fans.

“I loved that saying. It really spoke to me. It’s true,” the teenage actress said. “And I had to Tweet about it.”
