Selena Gomez is breaking out of her good girl mold and away from her days as a Disney darling. While fans are just hearing about her role in the new movie, Spring Breakers, they’ll actually need to see it to understand the full extent of Selena’s mold breaking.
Selena shares that she needed to do this to evolve as an actress, as the same type of good wholesome roles don’t encompass the full scope of acting. While Selena is pretty much a good girl in life, her Disney roles came easier than what she just needed to do in this new movie.
She’s never smoked a cigarette in her life, but she had to for her role in Spring Breakers. Selena needed someone to teach her how to hold and smoke a cigarette because she didn’t have a clue what to do, according to the Huffington Post.
When the movie comes out, Selena engages in a world that most parents would cringe at the thought of their kids even remotely getting involved in. Sex, drugs, and violence are a few things Selena wasn’t around in her Disney portrayals, but she is in her new adult role.
The former Wizards of Waverly Place star doesn’t have the faintest idea, as does anyone else, how her fans will take to her on the screen barely dressed and involved in this adult-themed movie. Will she suffer a type of fall-out for jumping over the line and breaking that good girl mold?
Selena’s movie and TV roles usually combine some type of role model for her to play in the past. The Wizards of Waverly Place present Selena as a good daughter, sister, and friend, and by the time the episode was over she did something that’s considered kind or good.
She had to leave those type of roles behind if she wanted to go on as a serious actor in the adult world. “This is what I want to be doing,” Selena shares in a recent interview. Will she feel the same when her fans, or most likely her fan’s parents, start to criticize the Disney kid turned adult entertainment?
