Selena ‘Cried’ Filming Spring Breakers

Selena Gomez told MTV: ‘There is a scene in the movie where James Franco and I have a confrontation, a very awkward, uncomfortable confrontation. And I knew about that scene two minutes before we shot it. I was supposed to be finished for the day. We had finished the crying scene.

I was in the pool house and I was bawling and I was so tired of crying because you get exhausted from crying. I was like, ‘Oh, I’m done.’ [Director] Harmony [Korine] pulls me aside, and he goes, ‘All right, so we’re gonna do a scene in here with you and James.’

And he goes, ‘He’s going to convince you to stay with the girls.’ and I go, ‘OK, well, what do I say? Am I sad? Am I mad? Am I scared?’ And he goes, ‘Sure.’ And I was like, ‘Well, wait a minute. What’s happening?’

[James] sat and he held my hand and I go, ‘Oh my goodness. What’s about to happen?’ And that scene was absolutely intense and so real because I had no idea that that was going to happen, and he was so brilliant in it.

It was just my job to kind of give it back to him, but there was a point where I couldn’t handle it anymore. It was like I was going head-to-head, and I bowed down. It was too intense. So that one is probably my favorite scene in the movie, it was just so great.’

    I would not criticizes if I haven’t seen all of her movies, obviusly she can improve but is she ever gonna be THE GREAT ACTRESS? I don’t think so, lets be realistic she’s never gonna win an oscar or something not even in her dreams. she can lern but for acting you need to have natural talent.

    Not everyone wants an Oscar. Do you think she makes movies like the wizards one and says ‘oh hopefully I get an oscar out of this’.. no! Just like jennifer aniston doesnt expect one either! Clearly there are actors out there that pick movies based solely on what awards they can get out of them. Look at Leonardo Dicaprio how many oscars does he have? & the majority of his acting career has been nothing but GREAT movies!
    As an actor you KNOW the quality of the movie you are making. You know if its award material.. and not everyone CARES about awards!

    There are great actresses everywhere… the fact that you want to sit there and say she isnt great at what she does without even seeing this movie to begin with says a lot about where you are coming from.

    for the second comment.. she said that she had just finished the crying scene before harmony told her about the new scene with james. and i thought it was realistic for her to ask how she was feeling.. ‘she’ being the character she is supposed to be playing.

    Do I think Selena is the BEST actress in the world? no. Do i think that she has the potential to be a great actress. yes.
    She is obviously just starting out. the point for her to do an indie film was to learn more and get more experience. The media and websites like these have turned her indie film into a big thing. But clearly she is willing to learn more and get better at it. She never says she is the best actress and I think a realistic fan knows that she isnt GREAT but she tries to learn and I can respect that.

    She’s not a great actress everyone knows that, and if someone disagree obviously doesn’t know anything about acting. I’m tired of fans saying that she acts.

    She had just finished a long scene with many takes where she was crying. She thought it was the end of the day. This was a time where she wanted to go home and James was trying to convince her to stay.
    These are things that Actors will usually have written in the script. For this scene, there was no script. Selena and James adlibbed the scene. Asking Harmony what she was supposed to project is just what actors do. Wait until you see the scene and remember that it’s real emotions from her and James. They had to feel their way through what was about to happen.

    I never really supported the idea of her doing Spring Breakers. But is she feels that’ll show her true acting skills then fine, why not? Maybe doing a film that was really dramatic/emotional would get her the attention/success/image she’s truly looking for ? I don’t know but doing Spring Breakers wasn’t the wisest idea especially because the media especially OU made it such a big thing. It’s just a film for God sake. They’re made everyday.

    Just remember that this is an indie film. originally there was not supposed to be so much hype and it was going to be seen by only a select few that are into those movies. Selena wanted to take on a part that could push her beyond mainstream movies. At the end of the day she wanted it to be a chance to really learn to perfect her craft.
