Pretty Little Liars star and former Disney star Ashley Benson is all grown up in her upcoming role in Harmonie Korine’s Spring Breakers in a part that calls for hard partying and a three-way scene James Franco and her friend Vanessa Hudgens (Sucker Punch).
Benson, who’s had plenty of sweetly romantic scenes as her Pretty Little Liars character Hanna Marin, spoke with the Sun in the UK about shooting the scene with rumored boyfriend Franco and her pal Hudgens.
“I’m really happy I had Vanessa to be there with me and James – he’s done this a million times, he didn’t make it awkward at all," Benson told the Sun. “Vanessa and I were so thankful that we were so close and had each other because any intimate scene is very awkward, even kissing a guy on screen is awkward because you have people all around you filming as well as an audience."
Spring Breakersis about four friends (Benson, Hudgens, Selena Gomez, and Rachel Korine) who embark on the collegiate rite of passage, only to be arrested for knocking off a restaurant to fund their trip.
Benson said of the scene, “We just did it, and then it was done! But it turned out amazing.”
