Ashley Benson: 'My Goal is to Win An Oscar!'

Ashley Benson: 'My Goal is to Win An Oscar!'

Ashley Benson shows off her pride in some American flag shorts on the cover of Seventeen magazine’s April 2013 issue, on newsstands March 12!

Here’s what the 23-year-old Spring Breakers actress had to share with the mag:

On her career goals: “I love Michelle Williams and Natalie Portman—those are the careers I want. My goal is to win an Oscar, and I’m going to take the steps to get there.”

On how Spring Breakers changed her and co-stars Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez: “We all came from a Disney background, and this was different from anything we’ve done. But we wanted to prove that we’re not just girls who play happy parts. It was such a crazy experience and it was character-building. I’m so proud of all of us. I’m really, really excited for everybody to see it.”

On Selena and ex Justin Bieber‘s response to the parody “Boyfriend” video from James Franco and herself: “I haven’t heard from Selena! People thought that I was being mean, but I was just doing what the girl did in the video. It wasn’t a jab at her. But I heard from Justin. He wasn’t happy. Justin is like my little brother since he and my ex are so close. Anytime you go through a breakup, the friends get defensive. But all is well in that area now.”

    the fact that selena hasnt said anything about it she might be a bit upset with the whole parody thing. but it seems like selena is the type that instead of facing the issue she will completely ignore it.

    i think ashley thinks that spring breakers will make her super famous but u never really know

    She and Kellan Lutz need to get a reality check. Oscar is not in either of their futures, lol.

    No Says:

    Is that why your acting? To win an Oscar? You should be acting because you love it, not because you want to be rich, famous, and win awards. get a grip.

    @No: @No: Thank you! You’re so right. Why are the Oscars the be all to end? Add her to the list of the other delusional actors…Lindsay Lohan, Kellan Lutz, etc.

    She seems very immature in this interview, especially the last question. I’m 23 and I’m quite certain I would never say such a thing.

    In order to win an Oscar, you need to know how to act Ashley Benson, so no! You won’t be winning anybody’s oscars.

    um she said it’s a career goal….are you going really going to sh!t on someone for having a goal and trying to work towards it….she didn’t say she would win one, just that she wants to

    Good for her for having that goal! Means she is commited. But I think she still has a lot to learn. I watch Pretty Little Liars and she is not the best actress, imo.

    That is absolutely hilarious. Thanks for that Ash. She basically has three different face expressions.

    ABC family is owned by Disney so technically she works for Disney on PLL. Basically they’ve all come from family/teen favorite TV shows or movies so this film was a departure for all of them. I’m interested to see it.

    why does every young girl in hollywood who can’t act say she wants to win an oscar. it makes them look oh so stupid.

    I remember she was on Days of our Lives and she’s probably just as 1 dimensional now as she was then. Where are any of the “stars” from the CW network now, they’re nowhere to be seen. Good luck on getting that pretend Oscar.

    She’ll definitely need more acting lessons to accomplish this. Girl can’t act worth a sh!t. Not hating, I’ve just seen her acting and it’s not good!
