Selena Gomez warns younger fans about Spring Breakers

Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers is already creating quite a stir ahead of its Stateside release, with star Selena Gomez warning her young fanbase that it’s a very adult movie.

“There’s gonna be the intrigued pre-teens that are gonna want to sneak in and see the movie, and that’s obviously something I can’t control,” she told The Hollywood Reporter (opens in new tab) .

“[ I can ] definitely warn them as best I can, but the movie is rated R, and it’s kind of a given when you see the trailer that you should be old enough to see the movie.”

The film follows Gomez and a trio of her fellow co-eds as they head off to spring break and fall in with James Franco’s sinister drug-dealer. And the star promises that audiences will be in for quite a ride…

“At the end of the day, this is a film, this is a journey, this is an experience,” she continues. “And it’s a hell of an experience, because you’re going through a crazy whirlwind, and Harmony [ Korine ]’s vision and imagination is crazy and you can see it in this film.

“And in a way, I like that I can make people feel that. So whether you hate it or whether you love it or whether you laugh, or you think it’s creepy, we made you feel something, and I think that’s really cool. So as far as how I’m gonna see how they react, hopefully it will just be settling and they can think about it.”

Co-starring Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine, Spring Breakers opens in the UK on 5 April 2013.
