Selena Gomez has admitted she's a little bit "nervous" about playing a bad girl on the big screen.
The Wizards Of Waverly Place actress will play against type as a party girl who robs a restaurant in Spring Breakers, which will also star Emma Roberts, Vanessa Hudgens and James Franco.
Selena told E! News her character ends up "getting into a whole mess of things".
She said: "It's a little edgy, but it's fun. I fought for that role."
The 19-year-old - who is the envy of countless teenagers as the real-life girlfriend of pop heartthrob Justin Bieber - will start shooting the movie in the next few weeks.
Selena has a busy year ahead as she is also set to star in and produce teenage drama The Sky Is Everywhere and will star in upcoming drama Thirteen Reasons Why.
