What was it like working with James Franco? Selena: I think it is his character that made me act quite well. When I met James at New Year’s, he is just so charismatic and obviously he is cute, but as this character he is so creepy. In real life, I’m attracted to the Ryan Goslings and those guys, not to that kind of grungy guy. So I always got nervous when I see him being creepy and hitting on a nineteen-year-olds. He had this great creep factor that made it easier for me.
Why do you think the other girls are attracted to him? The bad boy factor. I mean, as much as any girl wants to have the perfect guy, you always want a little bit of a bad boy, someone who rebels. I completely get it, absolutely. With the gold teeth and stuff, it is so funny. I think that’s what they like, it’s exciting, and I can totally see what they see in him.
In what way has Spring Breakers changed you? This opened my eyes and made me more comfortable in taking risks. I’m excited just to look at what’s out there and take the next step and do a couple of different roles whatever they are. It also changed people’s perception in Hollywood. The first thing they say to me now is, “So you’re working with Harmony Korine? That’s crazy. Is he crazy?” I think it’s exciting to throw people off, so I like it. Spring Breakers helps me not be afraid. Like I said, I’m generally very tentative and over- thinking, but this movie made me push myself.
..I took the role because I honestly thought it would be more independent. I mean, it is really independent, I just didn’t know it could be commercially successful. I have done films that are commercial, advertisements everywhere you look, all that stuff, and you have to go through a studio and they nit-pick everything to make it something every audience can see, and I don’t think that this film is that.
