Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine – the lovely ladies of Spring Breakers! The actresses looked super glamorous as they hit the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival in Italy on Wednesday (September 5) for the premiere of their new film.
Co-star James Franco was there as well – he plays a shady character who meets up with a group of college-age girls (Selena, Vanessa, Ashley and Rachel). They’re on the run after robbing a fast-food restaurant to pay for a spring break trip to Florida.
It sounds like the film was received well at the festival – Selena posted on Facebook that she got emotional after the crowd’s response. “Tonight was one of the most amazing nights I’ve ever had,” she said. “Our film got a standing ovation at the Venice film festival! I couldn’t stop crying.”
The actress also gave a shout-out to the film’s director Harmony Korine and stressed that the movie is definitely not for younger fans. “Being a part of such an amazing project was such a blessing,” she continued. “I’m truly so blessed. I’m still in shock! I hope you guys enjoy Harmony’s film making. He truly is amazing. Note: this movie is not for my little (younger fans)…it’s rated R! I just wanted to share this night with y’all! Love you!”
