“I was getting kind of repetitive in terms of the roles I was picking, and I really wanted to do something that was completely different. It was a mark thing for me—like, ‘This is what I want to be doing.’ I want to be taking myself seriously as an actress, and this was definitely a stretch.” She adds: “I mean, I’d never smoked a cigarette before in my entire life. It was really funny—they had to show me how to do it.”
Selena Gomez, talking about her role in the upcoming Spring Breakers, and how she had to—oh my God—smoke. Spring Breakers, if you haven’t heard much about it, is a movie about four girls who end up getting arrested during spring break, and a Kevin Federline-looking James Franco bails them out and gets them into far worse trouble. From IMDB:
Four college girls who land in jail after robbing a restaurant in order to fund their spring break vacation find themselves bailed out by a drug and arms dealer who wants them to do some dirty work.
But Selena Gomez! Smoking real cigarettes for a movie! Jeez. Don’t they have options for those staunchly against having to smoke for their job? Like, I don’t know, the e-cigarette or whatever? Or maybe she just wasn’t all that against it, huh?
Just out of curiosity—how many of you guys are smokers?
