'Spring Breakers' director Harmony Korine says the crime drama's wholesome stars Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson and Vanessa Hudgens were "totally game" despite it being a big departure
Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson and Vanessa Hudgens were "totally game" in 'Spring Breakers'.
The wholesome teen stars have shed their good reputations for the film which sees them appear as bikini-clad partiers who pull off an armed robbery and director Harmony Korine revealed they were more than happy.
He told The Observer newspaper: "I didn't have to do any convincing or hustling. They were totally game from [the] beginning and it never seemed there was much career strategising.
"I have a body of work. People can see what I'm trying to do and the places I try to go. They know I go hard and they know that I don't fake it."
Recently, Gomez recalled how she was "comfortable" with the project, with Korine keen for her to retain her innocence in the role.
She revealed: "We talked about how he wanted to leave my lifestyle behind and have me go on this adventure with him.
"I knew it was going to be crazy, but I was comfortable with it. Harmony wanted an innocence because he thought it would be creepier."
