Ashley Benson - Ashley Benson Shunned Gym For Spring Breakers

Actress Ashley Benson didn't need to hit the gym before shooting new movie Spring Breakers because the director wanted her belly to look bloated from alcohol.
Benson, Selena Gomez, and Vanessa Hudgens play hard-partying college students in the upcoming movie, which has seen the actresses parade around on set in everything from skimpy bikinis to bras and booty shorts.
However, because filmmaker Harmony Korine wanted the project to be authentic, Benson skipped her regular work-outs to give her the look of a heavy drinker.
She tells JustJared.com, "I was super nervous before... I talked to Harmony about it and he was like, 'There's no need to stress out. You guys are college students in the film and nobody has the perfect body!' Harmony really wanted us to look like we drank all the time and we partied, cuz that's what they did."
And the 22 year old admits Korine's outlook made everyone feel more confident onscreen.
She adds, "Any time you're in a bathing suit you're always self-conscious, because people comment,... but Harmony made us all feel really comfortable. What was also great was that me, Vanessa, Selena, and Rachel (Korine) were all really comfortable with each other and nobody was commenting or trying to get super skinny.
"It was just a good group of girls to be around. We were all like, 'We don't care if we're not perfect, and we're not perfect.' It was nice."
