Selena Gomez has risen to fame for her roles in child-friendly projects like Wizards of Waverly Place and Ramona and Beezus, but now the 19-year-old has ventured out of her typical roles and stepped into one that might cause some controversy in the upcoming film Spring Breakers. Gomez addressed the potential controversy during ET's set visit.

When asked if she thought the film will be controversial, Gomez replied, "Yes. Because it's real. What I love about Harmony [Korine] (director) is [that] he doesn't really allow anybody to fabricate his movies...He's not afraid to show people what really happens...He's not afraid to scare people...It'll definitely be controversial, I think, but I'm ready for it."
As for how Gomez's fans will react to her new endeavor, she revealed that she has already warned her young fans not to watch the film and has generally received support from her fans after undertaking the role. "Eventually I have to do things that are for me and this something that is really, really exciting for me," she said.

Vanessa Hudgens also commented on the film's potential controversy, saying, "It's definitely not a movie for everybody but you just gotta make the best movie that you can make and do it for yourself."

Pretty Little Liar's Ashley Benson added that although this may be a different type of role for her, she believes the film is great. "I think people are going to be shocked when they see this film," she said. "I think it's going to be a colt classic...It's so beautiful. The story's amazing."

Spring Breakers is centered upon four college girls who end up in jail after stealing money to fund their spring break vacation. The film's release date has yet to be scheduled.

I am so, so excited for this movie. lol

Oh, and I guess Selena's character smokes as well. I assumed she didn't cuz we never saw it in the candids.

Selena is really a smart girl and she sounds it but lol, please say "real" one more time.

V and Ashley are adorable and look beautiful. (This makes it sound like they were being stupid, they weren't lol.)

Ya I don't like her much but I don't think she's unintelligent.
mysterytours 24th-Apr-2012 11:01 pm (UTC)
aha you really think she's smart?
theoracle9 24th-Apr-2012 04:52 pm (UTC)

Shocking might be the wrong choice of words, but definitely controversial. And not even necessarily because of the content in the movie (I doubt it's anything we've never seen before), but because of the people in it.

She keeps talking about how this movie is "real" and what "really happens" on Spring Break because "Harmony did research" in this interview as if it's some hidden secret what really happens on Spring Break and they are exposing it to the world. You don't have to do research to know that boozing, drugs use, sex etc happens on Spring Break, Sel. lol

lol @ calling the movie "real", just because it's about sex, drugs and party.
theoracle9 24th-Apr-2012 05:38 pm (UTC)
..or because it's an accurate description of what many spring breaks are like? Thus being 'real'.

And don't assume the movie is all about partying and drugs. I seriously doubt they'd sign on, let alone boast about the "amazing" story if the whole premise of the movie was sex and alcohol.

spassbremse123 24th-Apr-2012 05:45 pm (UTC)
Well the only thing I can judge it by is the title and the millions of candids I saw in various posts here and tbh - there never seemed to be much else to it than drugs, sex & party.
It wouldn't be the first time they made a movie like that.

And they're calling the story amazing and stuff because it's their job to promote their own project.

edit: And yes, it's probably a somewhat accurate depiction of what "Spring Break" is all about.
But that's pretty much the easiest thing to make a "real" movie about.
So calling it "real" like it's an accomplishment is pretty absurd.

In all those candids we've seen they were usually wearing the same outfit. Selena was in that blue bikini for most of the time. Meaning all those hundred of pictures we've seen could be the equivalence of just 1 day in the movie.

I think she's calling it real because of Harmony. The guy has a reputation, and I'm sure he's not gonna sugarcoat anything in this movie either.
calcified 24th-Apr-2012 06:54 pm (UTC)
How can you tell what the dialogue/plot is like from pictures...
spassbremse123 24th-Apr-2012 07:15 pm (UTC)
I can't.. but the twitter screenshots theoracle9 posted up along with all the candids make me fear the worst.

Selena didn't say that though rme

Some of Harmony Korine's films are cult classics, so I don't see why this film wouldn't have a possibility of being one.
omgitsjoejonas 24th-Apr-2012 06:11 pm (UTC)
I have a feeling this film is either gonna be really good, or really bad haha. Can't wait to find out which.

lmao... okay Ashley
fuckingsookie 24th-Apr-2012 07:04 pm (UTC)
lol i wonder if this movie is going to even hit many theaters or if it's going to be a 'LOL' situation where it takes forever to get released and then only gets into 7 theaters
watch_mex0x0 24th-Apr-2012 07:12 pm (UTC)
it's not supposed to hit theaters.. more like festivals and if does well maybe a studio will pick it up
fuckingsookie 24th-Apr-2012 07:21 pm (UTC)
I was talking about if it was to be picked up by a studio. Thus the whole ~ will it take forever to get released bit
bananabaron 24th-Apr-2012 07:21 pm (UTC)
