Selena Gomez on the set of Spring Breakers in Fort Lauderdale

Selena Gomez said she almost suffered a breakdown on the set of Spring Breakers last year because everyone was paying attention to her. Oh my gosh, what a terrible thing for an actress. Via the San Francisco Chronicle:
Gomez admits she felt intimidated by the attention of hundreds of fans and photographers who clambered to watch her strutting about in skimpy outfits for the saucy scenes.

She tells Britain's The Guardian, "I had a mini breakdown on set. There was too much attention, photographers, hundreds of fans, and all of us in bikinis in the pool. I got overwhelmed doing some of the things we were doing and having such an active audience at all times, even though I knew at heart we were super-safe."

The actress only felt able to continue after sharing a heart-to-heart chat with the film's director Harmony Korine. Korine's wife Rachel says, "Harmony went over to her and said: 'This is really happening, this is you right at this moment,' and he encouraged her to use it, and from that moment on she imbued her character with a whole new extra dimension."
We should start giving away Purple Hearts to actors and actresses who survive such harrowing ordeals as filming a hot tub scene in a bikini with people watching you. Such strength. Such courage. Selena Gomez, you are my hero.

  • vet

    I don't normally reply to these things, but comparing an actress who had a life moment with a soldier getting wounded in combat?

  • Dave

    The movie was filming around Tampa, not Ft Lauderdale.

  • joker

  • John Wilson

    Were is all the top actress we had before? Yes i know all pass away, but is the reason to support this kind of littlel girl not happy because the sun is too strong,or the water is too hot?

  • Jesse Miller

    huh?

  • Vicky bieber

    I think that selena gomez is full of shit but I Luv Justin Bieber xxx

  • VampPotterJayDiaries

    The fact that you "love" Justin Bieber implies your judgement of character is flawed.

  • HATINERDAY

    Well thanks to her role in this movie there is now pictures from a cut scene of her having "drugs" snorted off her naked chest by another girl. Maybe the nervous breakdown was actually her gut instinct telling her "This is a bad idea."

  • wow it only me or vanessa looks like shes pregnant o..O

  • Herman Bumfudle

    my beautiful baby face is so incredibly beautiful and so intimidatingly brilliant.

  • tdarne89

    This is silly... first of all it could be very overwhelming knowing some of the stuff a DISNEY star had to do in this movie to have all of these people watching her become an adult star instead of a child star sounds pretty intemedating to me as well

  • LARN

    intimidating*

  • Pax

    "Selena Gomez is full of shit" ?? The one posting stuff like this is full of shit.

  • Crazy_Hater

    Are you sure they were clamoring to see your skinny little ass? I'd bet big money there were plenty there to see the likes of that blonde hottie Ashley Benson!! She gets me in a sweaty lather, YOU, not-so-much. Grow up first little girl.

  • Jesse Miller

    you do realize that by posting not only one mesage, but two, you really show your own short falls. you definitely have an inferiority complex, leading to self hatred that you turn on others, that you dont even know. not to try to insult you, but you are pathetic. either wallow in your own self hatred, or get yourself help. by the way, the flag in your icon is the flag of traitors who hated the US and were scum who felt they should have the right to own other human beings.

  • Crazy_Hater

    So quit the Liberal Loon Hollywood crap and get yourself a real fucking job you spoiled little CUNT! Cry me a river when you cash those paychecks you whining piece of clueless SHIT! FUCK YOU !!

  • RX178
