21 Reasons Alex Russo From 'Wizards Of Waverly Place' Is Your Ideal BFF

Besides the fact that she can do magic and all.

The only person cooler than Selena Gomez? Her character, Alex Russo, on Disney Channel's "Wizards Of Waverly Place," duh. On the show, Alex is BFFs with the fashionable and spunky Harper Finkle, played by Jennifer Stone.

But IRL -- ya know, if Alex was actually a real person, not a character on TV -- we wish Alex was our BFF instead of Harper's. Here's why:

  1. She's always honest.

    When you ask her if your butt looks good in a new pair of jeans, she'll tell you the brutal truth -- that you need to return those pants, stat.

  2. She's appropriately excited for all your life accomplishments.

    Ace that exam? Get into your dream college? Snag a sweet summer job? She's always cheering you on.

  3. She hates the same people you hate...
    Disney Channel
  4. ...and she'll make fun of those people right alongside you.

  5. She'll always be down for late-night karaoke.

    The fact that she has an awesome voice doesn't hurt either.

  6. She tells it like it is.
    Disney Channel

    Cheers to that, sister.

  7. She'll dress up in a crazy couples costume with you on Halloween.

    Or, like, any day of the year. Alex is always down to dress up for funzies.

  8. She won't judge you for never using your gym membership.
    Disney Channel

    You both act like you're gonna go to that spin class tonight ... but deep down, you both know it's def not happening.

  9. She's just as awk at flirting as you are...
    Disney Channel
  10. ...and you both have different tastes in guys.
    Disney Channel

    So you never end up awkwardly flirting with the same dude. Woo!

  11. She'll selfie with you.
    Disney Channel

    And she'll retake and/or delete said selfies if you look less than fabulous in them.

  12. She prefers to spend her weekends the same way you do.

    On a couch. With chips, preferably.

  13. She brings you up when you're down.
    Disney Channel

    The glass is always half full.

  14. You're secretly jealous of how confident she is.
    Disney Channel

    You want to be that confident and badass! How does she do it?

  15. Her parents are the coolest.
    Disney Channel

    You always feel welcome when you crash at her place.

  16. Oh, and she also has a super hot older brother.

    *wink*

  17. Her sarcasm is always on point.
    Disney Channel

    She's sarcastic and witty, but it never comes off as being flat-out rude. She knows when to stop before it goes too far.

  18. She knows exactly what you need when a boy doesn't text you back.
    Disney Channel

    Or when it's that time of month.

  19. She has her priorities straight.
    Disney Channel

  20. She'll binge on takeout with you.
    Disney Channel

    No shame.

  21. She knows the best way to celebrate any occasion.
