Selena Gomez is slowly shedding her good-girl image—at least on the big screen.
In her next movie, you're going to see the 19-year-old former Wizards of Waverly Place starlet like you've never seen her before...
After Gomez completes her world tour in South America in about three weeks, she's off to Florida to shoot indie filmmaker Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers with James Franco, Vanessa Hudgens and Emma Roberts.
The three actresses play friends who rob a bank to help pay for their spring-break vacation. Gomez takes on the part of Faith.
"She's the little more tamed down character but also still gets a little crazy here and there," she told me at her recent UNICEF benefit at the House of Blues in West Hollywood. "She goes on spring break with her girlfriends and they end up getting into a whole mess of things. They're partying and drinking. We end up in jail."
Gomez said a part of her plan is to take a break from music to focus on her acting career. "I'm nervous," she said. "It's a little edgy, but it's fun. I fought for that role. I flew to Nashville and told him I want be a part of it."
