Selena Gomez attends Day 8 of Ischia Global Film & Music Fest 2014 on July 19, 2014 in Ischia, Italy.  

Comedian Jeff Garlin spoke out against the "sexualization" of young stars such as Selena Gomez and Ariana Grande Wednesday, telling the Huffington Post "this is disgusting it's happening so young."

"I saw Spring Breakers," he said. "I'm by myself in the theater and I couldn't have felt dirtier."

Garlin appeared in the Disney series Wizards of Waverly Place with Gomez and had only good things to say about the 22-year-old Gomez personally. But when it comes to the way she and former Nickelodeon star Grande, 21, are portrayed he said it just feels dirty. 

"Both beautiful girls, really beautiful girls, but they have baby fat. They look like kids," he said. 

For the record, Garlin said he's "all for ladies in bikinis," and by the time Gomez is 30 "she'll be ridiculous."
