Selena Gomez Wanted Raunchy Role Even More Because of ‘Disney’ Childhood

Disney stars Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez are both looking to break the mould with their new raunchy ‘Spring Breakers’ roles. According to Selena, she was even more drawn to the role because of her clean ‘Disney’ childhood and is excited to shake up her image and admits that it is the direction she wants her career to follow so it marks a big change for her:

“Disney is a machine, and I’m grateful for it, but I feel like being part of that environment made me crave the reaction from other projects even more, creatively this is where I wanted to go.”

Vanessa believes that this is the best way for the ‘Disney’ girls to be seen in a new light and she admits that she wants to be seen as an actress that other people want to admire. She is also aiming to shock people and thinks this will change people’s ideas:

“I want people to look at me not as that girl from High School Musical, but as an actress they admire, with Spring Breakers I’m looking for a reaction for sure. I want to shock people. It was an amazing opportunity for us, Selena and I are both young, finding our footing, wanting to grow.”

Selena says she is extremely proud of the work she put in and is excited to see the world’s reaction to the film:

“I’ve never been part of a movie I would watch over and over again, and I’m really proud of it.”
