"Spring Breakers" stars Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens weren't quite sure how their mothers would react to their latest roles as rowdy, bikini-clad bank robbers in their new movie, but the actresses said they were pleasantly surprised by their moms' reactions.

"My mom was in love with the movie," Vanessa told Access Hollywood with a grin, at the junket for the Harmony Korine-directed film in Los Angeles, when asked how her mom reacted to the racy film while watching a screening at the premiere.

In the R-rated flick, the former "High School Musical" star has a few steamy sex scenes - including a threesome with co-stars James Franco and Ashley Benson - but even the down and dirty moments didn't faze Vanessa's mom.

"All the really intense parts she was sitting behind me giggling!" the 24-year-old beauty said.

And Selena's mother was also pleased with the film.

"My mom had already seen it," she said, explaining that the film's premiere screening was her mother's second viewing and that her mom noticed new favorite moments from Selena the second time around. "She was really excited for me."

As for what type of roles the actresses would like to tackle next, Vanessa and Selena both agreed they'd like to sign on for something a little less intense.

"I think [I'd like to do] probably something a little more light-hearted next," Vanessa told Access with a laugh. "Like a romantic comedy or something like that. Something happy."

Selena, 20, said she's taking a brief respite from the screen - but will be back.

"I'm taking a break from acting for a little bit to get into music, so that will be next for me," she said. "As for roles, yeah, I would definitely try something a little bit different. But I'm open to anything."

"Spring Breakers" hits theaters on March 22.
