VENECIA, Italia (AP) — Los admiradores más jóvenes de Selena Gomez quizás no aprecien del todo su más reciente papel.

Gomez protagoniza el filme de Harmony Korine "Spring Breakers", sobre cuatro estudiantes universitarias que roban un puesto de comida rápida para pagarse unas vacaciones de primavera. Las chicas se meten en problemas al ser arrestadas bajo cargos de drogas, y luego que un matón interpretado por James Franco paga su fianza para liberarlas se embarcan en un alocado viaje.

Gomez, mejor conocida como Alex Russo en la serie de Disney "Wizards of Waverly Place", reconoce que el papel sería "un poco espeluznante" para su público más joven. Sin embargo, "creo que era apropiado para mí", dijo.

La actriz protagoniza la cinta con Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson y Rachel Korine, la esposa del director. El filme tuvo su estreno mundial el miércoles en el Festival de Cine de Venecia.
