Selena Gomez says she wasn't fazed by her outfits in the forthcoming movie Spring Breakers and was simply "playing a character." Gomez and co-star Vanessa Hudgens wore bikinis for almost the entirety of the indie flick, though Justin Bieber's former squeeze says it was all part of the experience.
"It was so funny. The rest of the girls were in the trailer doing crunches. I didn't mind. I didn't care," she told MTV News, "People take pictures. People already have opinions. I wasn't there for that, necessarily. I was playing a character, so I just completely indulged myself in that. So whether I was in a bathing suit or a turtleneck, I was fine." The minimal wardrobe choices for the movie have been a prominent talking point since the trailer for the movie - also starring James Franco - hit the web. The adult themes in Harmony Korine's latest movie - which was shortlisted for the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival - is a new direction for Gomez, who warned her younger fans to sit this one out. "I do everything for my fans. I know that I have a younger following, and I so appreciate that, and I'm thankful for that, but I did warn them in my best ability, as I could," she said. "When I see the parents, I go, 'Maybe they don't see this one'."
Spring Breakers opens in New York and Los Angeles on March 15 before expanding nationwide on March 22, 2013.
