Shooting a three-way with Vanessa Hudgens and James Franco was ‘awkward’ and ‘different,’ Ashley tells HollywoodLife.com.

Don’t let the title fool you: filming Spring Breakers was no day at the beach, especially for Ashley Benson, who had the harrowing task of getting down to business with co-stars Vanessa Hudgens and James Franco — and I do mean business. “I think the hardest part was probably the threesome,” Ashley recently told HollywoodLife.com. “I have never done that before; it was a very new experience.”

Ashley, 22, credits her co-stars for easing her into the process and helping her navigate the treacherous waters of group sex.

“I was able to do it with Vanessa, who is one of my closest friends now, and James, who is one of my closest friends now,” she explained. “That made it easier. But anything with any intimacy is always awkward. It’s still awkward for me on [Pretty Little Liars]. It’s a whole different thing, but it was fun, and we got through it!”

And Ashley’s group scene is just one of the many ways she thinks fans will be surprised by her racy new role.

“The character was so different from anything I’ve ever done!” she said. “Vanessa and I had to play really insane girls, almost psychotic. They are crazy. It was exhausting. I just wanted to go get my nails done, or hang out in my hotel, because things were so extreme.”
