(EndPlay Staff Reports) - Selena Gomez showed her wild side in a new photo spread for Interview magazine.

The former "Wizards of Waverly Place" star donned a brightly colored bikini along with her co-stars from her new movie "Spring Breakers" â€" one of them being fellow Disney darling Vanessa Hudgens.

"Spring Breakers" marks a new kind of role for Gomez, but the 19-year-old actress was ready to take on a role that showed she was serious about acting, she said in Interview magazine's June issue .

"I was getting kind of repetitive in terms of the roles I was picking, and I really wanted to do something that was completely different. It was a mark thing for me â€" like, 'This is what I want to be doing.' I want to be taking myself seriously as an actress, and this was definitely a stretch," Gomez explained.

So much of a stretch, that the clean-cut Gomez, who is dating Justin Bieber, had to have someone teach her how to hold and smoke a cigarette.

"I mean, I'd never smoked a cigarette before in my entire life. It was really funny â€" they had to show me how to do it," Gomez admitted.

The movie, directed by "Kids" director, Harmony Korine, is about a group of girls who rob a bank in order to fund their spring break trip. They end up in jail and are bailed out by a drug dealer, played by James Franco.

There has been plenty of talk about the film. During the filming this past March, photos from the movie set showed up online â€" free publicity that Korine appreciated.

"I liked the idea of the film as a social experiment. It was like there were two movies â€" the actual movie, and then the one that the media, paparazzi, and the people tweeting photos were also creating," Korine said.

"Spring Breakers" previewed a three minute clip at Cannes, but will not be coming out until next year, the Daily Mail reported.
