Selena Gomez Talks SPRING BREAKERS, Why She Signed on, What She Learned from the Experience, BEHAVING BADLY, GETAWAY, and More
Harmony Korine is the writer/director of the film Spring Breakers. When best friends Brit (Ashley Benson), Faith (Selena Gomez), Candy (Vanessa Hudgens) and Cotty (Rachel Korine) make plans for spring break, they decide that they all should have fun. Although they plan on having a blast, their lack of funds lead them into the wrong path. They end up getting involved with a local rapper/drug pusher/arms dealer Alien (James Franco), who tempts the girls into a life of crime.
At the film’s press day, Selena Gomez spoke about why the script interested her and made her want to sign on. She said that she was nervous about the role she had to play and the directors style but they rehearsed and talked about scenes prior to shooting. Gomez said that she met many new people and non actors and Spring Breakers helped her decide if she will be acting in a comic book movie, Behaving Badly.
Interview with Selena Gomez:
Did it help that you, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson had been friendly, before doing this, so that you were already comfortable with each other?
Did you take to the improvisational style that Harmony Korine encourages, or were you nervous about that?
