Asked at the Toronto International Film Festival, where she was promoting the movie last September, if thr singer-actress has any message for her younger fans regarding "Spring Breakers," Gomez replied, "Don't see it.
"I wrote a message on my social networking site, saying kids my age, my generation, I think, they should see it because it's very real," the 20-year-old Texan told reporters at the TIFF press conference.
"We're not sugar-coating anything, but then I put underneath [the message,] 'It's rated R, so please don't see it if you're under 18.' I don't know. That's as much warning as I can give to the parents and the kids, but you can't control what kids do."
"When my series ended, I was really excited to start doing a couple of movies and I thought that doing the independent route would probably be best for me. And when Harmony mentioned my name and I read this script, I thought, 'If there is anybody that I'm going to take this risk on in doing the transition, it would be Harmony.' When I met with him, we met for like 2 hours, talking about the script and I think he really believed in me and, in a way, he took a chance putting me in this movie and it's been a really great experience. It's a hard transition, I think, but I'm having fun doing it, so, hopefully, people will accept it," Gomez explained.
