For fans of the bizarre yet beautiful indie film 'Spring Breakers,' you may be surprised at how little the actors made from the legendary indie flick. Starring James Franco, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, and many more, 'Spring Breakers' was a project that many dedicated themselves to.
In a recent interview with In Style, Benson, explained that she didn't do the film for the money. "One [film] that I didn’t get paid for—really, at all—was Spring Breakers, which turned out to be one of my favorite projects I’ve ever done. In the indie film world, I would rather get paid [next to] nothing to work with someone like Harmony Korine and have an amazing experience and the outcome be an incredible film I’m really proud of," she said.
'Spring Breakers' debuted in 2013 and follows a group of college students that trade in the hallowed halls of their university for a life of crime at a Florida beach town.
