“Spring Breakers” star Ashley Benson is on the cover of the April 2013 issue of Seventeen, and the 23-year-old opened up to the mag about her career goals and why she shed her good-girl image for this role.
When asked about her career goals, Benson said, “I love Michelle Williams and Natalie Portman — those are the careers I want. My goal is to win an Oscar, and I’m going to take the steps to get there.”
She also spoke to the departure her racy “Spring Breakers” role is from her Disney heritage. “Selena, Vanessa and I all came from a Disney background, and [the movie] was different from anything we’ve done,” she said. “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.”
