But in Korine's world, along with booze, drugs and beach bodies there's a rapping drug dealer James Francoa Britney Spears ballad and lots of guns. Director Harmony Korine wastes no time in thrusting us right into what spring break is all about: fun, sun, skin and beer. The film opens with a montage of sexed-up spring breakers partying it up on the beach as Skrillex plays; topless girls give the finger to the camera as guys chug beer from funnels and pour them into the mouths of said topless girls.
A number of celebs have fallen victim to the sexy-naked-photo-gone-public scandal, and Vanessa Hudgens is no exception. In the latest issue of Paper magazinethe former "High School Musical" star touched upon the infamous moment in when compromising pictures of the then-Disney star went wide on the Internet. Take a look at Hudgens' outfit for 'Spring Breakers' premiere.
For all the sun-scathed bacchanalia that the title promised, the working-out is a mere slippery slope of crime—the women at least, three of them get the money for the spree by holding up a fast-food joint and so they arrive at the beach as something of a band apart, differentiated from the other kids by those extreme measures and riper for some headier gangster action than they themselves expected. The movie suggests that its spring breakers—especially its two most audacious—are getting, guns ablaze, the education of their life, and that college itself is, rather, the permanent vacation where privileged young people stay clear of the raw realities of America. Korine presents the divide in experience essentially in racial terms.
In the film, Gomez, along with fellow Hollywood starlets Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine, play college students who hijack a fast food restaurant in order to fund their spring break trip to Florida. The film's trailer shows the young women brandishing guns - while wearing bikinis - and engaging in other risky behavior. The actresses shot the film alongside actual spring breakers, Hudgens recently told Vulture magazine, and at times, things got a little crazy.
Spring Breakers is a American crime film written and directed by Harmony Korine. It stars James FrancoVanessa HudgensSelena GomezAshley Benson and Rachel Korine and follows four college-aged girls on their spring break in Florida where they meet an eccentric local drug dealer named Alien who helps them in a time of desperation, and their eventual descent into a world of drugs, crime, and violence. Korine had devised the concept for Spring Breakers over several years prior to production, with fleeting ideas about the plot and what should transpire.
In spite of her high-profile projects and popularity, Ashley Benson is definitely not a pretty little spender. In an interview with InstyleBenson reveals she is not only quite frugal, but she's willing to make financial sacrifices to work on projects she loves. The avid thrift shopper admits she will sometimes splurge on things like handbags and her dogs' outfits.
There's certainly no shortage of naked breasts, jiggling butts and suspicious substances in "Spring Breakers," Harmony Korine's crazy college dramedy set for U. Even James Franco, playing a soft-hearted rapper named Alien, leads off his time in the film by declaring, "Bikinis and big booties, y'all. That's what life is about.

Gill Pringle meets an actress who's growing up fast. Nothing severs the Disney umbilical cord faster than starring in a movie about sex, drugs and guns. And just in case Disney failed to get the memo, Vanessa Hudgens has made not one but four films which push the envelope, playing variously a teen mom, a stripper and a drug addict, culminating in her edgiest performance to date as an out-of-control college sexpot in Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers.
It has been a source of intense interest since shooting first started around St. Pete Beach in Florida last spring, as images began to surface via paparazzi and social media of young starlets Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson. Seeming to be a part of raunchy spring break shenanigans, they were seen riding scooters, frolicking on the beach and being marched around in bikinis and handcuffs.
