Selena Gomez wants to shed her innocent image.
The Spring Breakers actress, who recently split from her on/off boyfriend Justin Bieber for good, is reportedly open to the idea of appearing topless in a movie because she wants to show off her edgier side.
"Now that Selena is growing up to be a more serious actress and separating herself from her Disney past, she has no problem going topless if the role calls for it. Without a doubt, Selena would go topless in a film if the role was right," a source close to the 20 year-old actress said.
The multi-talented beauty has recently been focusing on her music career but said she plans to put it on hold to concentrate on movies in the future: "I'm just kind of halting music for a bit. [I've] been really focused on more acting. For me it's been fun to take risks and do things that are completely different. To be honest, maybe some of you guys might not be comfortable with it ... I'm still the same person. Things that challenge me really excite me. I'm doing another movie called The Getaway with Ethan Hawke. It's really, really exciting. So we're doing that and then hopefully another movie, but that hasn't really been confirmed yet. Then I'll start working on my fourth album, which will be the best album I'll ever do!"
Selena Gomez says her transition from Disney star to mature actress has been "a little awkward."
The 20-year-old actress stars as a college student gone wild in new movie Spring Breakers, which features drugs, sex and violence and admitted the transition from the star of kid friendly Wizards of Waverly Place has been "weird."
"I am getting a little bit older, so I wanted to push myself and kind of get into a little bit more of an indie world. And it was a really great experience for me. And at the same time it has been, of course, a little awkward, but great. Honestly, it's been a weird transition. You never really know what's right or wrong and you can only do the best you can."
It was recently revealed Selena - who dumped Justin Bieber in January after struggling to maintain a "normal" relationship - is ready to move on and wants someone more mature than the 19-year-old "As Long As You Love Me" hitmaker.
Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens are on the fast track to shedding their innocent Disney images - starting with Harmony Korine's latest film, Spring Breakers. In the film's latest poster, the pair are joined by their other bikini-clad co-stars Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine (Harmony's wife) while James Franco towers over them with a gun pointing at the viewer.
Spring Breakers hits theaters - appropriately - this Spring.

Selena Gomez will star in and produce in new movie The Sky Is Everywhere. The Wizards of Waverly Place actress has optioned the novel of the same name by Jandy Nelson through her production company July Moon and will take on the lead role of Lennie Walker, a shy girl whose life is turned upside down when her beloved older sister dies.
According to the synopsis of the book, "Lennie plays second clarinet in the school orchestra and has always happily been second fiddle to her charismatic older sister, Bailey. Then Bailey dies suddenly, and Lennie is left at sea without her anchor. Overcome by emotion, Lennie soon finds herself torn between two boys: Bailey's boyfriend, Toby, and Joe, the charming and musically gifted new boy in town. While Toby can't see her without seeing Bailey and Joe sees her only for herself, each offers Lennie something she desperately needs. But ultimately, it's up to Lennie to find her own way toward what she really needs - without Bailey."

So remind me again - why exactly did Tom Cruise drop out of Salt?
The thriller Cruise was once attached to fired up $36 million over the past three days - nearly $15 million more than Knight and Day did just four weeks ago. (That movie, by the way, just fell out of the Top 10 after only four weeks.) Salt‘s numbers, though, did not match Angelina Jolie’s previous actioners (e.g. Wanted, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Tomb Raider). The Sony film also failed to boot Inception out of first place.
Meanwhile, Ramona and Beezus, the weekend’s only other new wide release, failed to even cross the $10 million mark. But Beverly Cleary lovers shouldn’t feel bad - the adaptation only cost about $15 million to produce.
