Selena Gomez STATIC interview excerpts Were the cigarettes in Spring Breakers fake? Yes. It was nauseating. And the scene where I am sitting under the lamp post, there are tears running down my face because I was disgusted. It was so gross, because it was cardboard, it was grass, it was not very good.
Have you ever smoked? No. I remember I didn’t even know how to hold a cigarette, I was like, ‘What do I do?’ (laughs) Are you relived that you didn’t go through this whole Spring Break experience yourself? I don’t know, I mean I think everything happens for a reason. And in a way, we did get to experience it.
It also must be hard to act stoned and drunk and act like you’re on various drugs. Did you do anything first, or how did you get into that frame of mind? Well, it helped to be in that environment, it helped to just see all of those people who were gone. A lot of the kids were not actors, they were just there on spring break. It kind of just helped a bit.
And they were just totally normal with you guys? Yeah. Well I mean, there was one time where I was a little uncomfortable dancing with some of the guys. (laughs) Were they getting too close? Well, I asked Rachel to come and stand behind me. (laughs) But it was fun, they were all really nice and cool.
You have such a successful career. Is there any temptation to go to college? This is a college in a way. We have a huge press tour coming up and we get to travel to these beautiful places and when we are there, we take it all in. We are super lucky. A lot of people don’t even get to leave their hometown, so in a way, we are getting a different education, which I think we are super thankful for and if the opportunity comes where we want to go, I think we all have that chance and we will take it if we want.
How cool is it to play this friendship and on a large scale how important is friendship in your business? So important. And it was fun, I loved all of them, it was a really good time. And it is important, you know, having four girls in a movie, you never know how that’s going to go, and we’ve all experienced catty girls in this industry, so we got super lucky and it’s safe to say we made really good friends. Whose style do you most admire? I wish I could be Victoria Beckham and look like that every day. (laughs)
