Ashley Benson is now dating James Franco, but got the role in Spring Breakers after becoming friends with Selena. She was hooking up with Bieby’s friend Ryan Good so became fast friends with Selena, reports Radar. Insider:
‘Selena feels used and kind of punched in the face seeing as though she got Ashley the role and Ashley just used the opportunity to break her friend’s heart. After Emma Roberts turned down the role because she didn’t want to gain weight for it, Ashley practically begged Selena to get her in front of producers for the part. She did, because she thought they were all friends, but it was clear early on that Ashley had something going on with James.’
Ryan started feeling like something was up because Ashley was usually quite possessive and insecure in their relationship, but when she all of a sudden didn’t have time for him, Justin and Selena didn’t know what to say.
‘Once the shoot wrapped, Ashley told Ryan they needed to ‘slow down’ and then booked a flight to New York City to go see James’ art gallery showing. Selena is pi**ed off that she went out of her way to vouch for Ashley, only to have her dump Ryan. She got the role and she got the man, but she lost a good friend.’
