Vanessa Hudgens is set to prove that she’s all grown up now with her new film, Spring Breakers, about a bunch of college girls who rob a diner to fund their spring break trip.
Things quickly go downhill from there; and it’s much darker and more violent than the typical family-friendly films for which the actress is best known. Even co-star and fellow Disney kid Selena Gomez has asked her younger fans not to see it.
Vanessa recently did a new photoshoot and interview for Paper magazine; discussing her extensive Disney background, those 2007 photos that hit the internet (you know which ones), and Spring Breakers co-star James Franco — who’s still actually still a stranger to her despite being one of the film’s main characters.
“I still don’t know him,” she says of her co-star. “I have no idea who James Franco is. I know who [Franco’s character] Alien is. He’s that into method acting. He comes on set as his character. In between scenes, he is still his character.
“When I first saw him, I was speechless because he just completely transformed himself. The way he talked, with that accent… Everything he does is so organic.”
