With on- and off-screen best friend Shay Mitchell covering all the talking points about Pretty Little Liars with Teen Vogue, Ashley Benson‘s all about her upcoming movie, Spring Breakers, in her latest interview with Seventeen. Well, maybe not all about Spring Breakers; she also spills on Justin Bieber, James Franco and her ex-boyfriend. We know, it’s juicy stuff.
On the topic of Spring Breakers, she says, “Selena [Gomez], Vanessa [Hudgens], and I all came from a Disney background, and [Spring Breakers] was different from anything we’ve done. But we wanted to prove that we’re not just girls who play happy parts. It was such a crazy experience — I’m so proud of all of us. I’m really excited for everybody to see it.”
And remember that “Boyfriend” parody she did with James? Yeah, she talks about that, too: “I haven’t heard from Selena [about the “Boyfriend” parody]! People thought that I was being mean, but I was just doing what the girl did in the video. It wasn’t a jab at her. But I heard from Justin. He wasn’t happy. Justin is like my little brother since he and my ex [Ryan Good] are so close. Anytime you go through a breakup, the friends get defensive. But all is well in that area now.”
Speaking of boyfriends, Ashley’s looking for one!… for her co-star, that is: “One of my best friends is Shay Mitchell and she’ll be like, ‘I want a boyfriend!’ She’s been looking for three years… Every guy wants to date her, but she’s like, ‘No. No. No. No.’ I’m always on the lookout for Shay. Always. I’m always trying to get her a boyfriend!”
