Vanessa In Glamour South Africa
A few months back Vanessa chatted with Glamour South Africa! She talks about Spring Breakers and about life!
Vanessa, in Spring Breakers things get completely out of hand, to the point where you even end up robbing people! Not really a role anybody would expect from you…
Vanessa: I’ve been recently doing a few projects that are darker, deeper and heavier. Reading these situations in the movie where our characters rob people, which has such a harsh and hard element, was something that I just liked. I felt like I would be in my element and as though I’ve had a taste of it. It’s so much fun and I wanted more of it. My character seems like the one who, even though she’s bad-ass and tough and hard, still has a sweet, fun side underneath it all. She’s like a bubbling little girl, who is just so excited about everything. I feel as though that’s partly who I am: Under these deep, dark, and heavy characters I’m inside of myself just jumping for joy at the fun that I’m having.
How did you first hear about this project? Were you familiar with the director Harmony Korine’s work beforehand?
A little bit. My manager has Rosario Dawson as one of his clients, and Harmony worked with her on Kids, which was actually one of my dad’s favorite movies. He was a fan of Harmony’s work so when this came along he was really excited.
