Vanessa Hudgens: Bandslam Promo Has Started!

Vanessa Hudgens: Bandslam Promo Has Started!

Vanessa Hudgens looks breathtaking in a floral top as she chats with EXTRA‘s Tamika about her upcoming movie, Bandslam, on Friday afternoon (April 24)

The 20-year-old actress dished on her character Sa5m, saying, “I only have one song, not a whole bunch. It’s a completely different character. I love Gabriella but my character is a lot more darker, more introverted. She’s very deadpan throughout the whole thing. [She spells her name] S-A-5-M and the 5 is silent. She’s cool like that, it’s how she rolls.”

Check out Alyson Michalka and Gaelan Connell‘s interviews @ EXTRA Raw.

Bandslam hits theaters on August 14.

  • melisa


  • KANA

    Oh she looks beautiful, I thought she was wearing a kimono at first! Cute top. Her hair is so prettyyyy straight, but i don’t like where it parts either. Still Looking snazzy, miss hudgens!

  • miley cyrus rocks!!!!!!!!!!

    this was boriiingg but i still like you vanessa or do i lol

  • Tata

    vanessa rocks!!! i cant wait till i watch bandslam and other her new projects!! she looks just adorable!!!

  • suzy

    loved her reaction to the marriage question.

    bbv is so cute.

  • lisee

    i love nessa but when she burrows or frowns her eyebrows like that, it makes her look kind of mean :[ and attitudy SOME of the answers but she still comes off sweet and i love the questions though Hahahahhaa and her answers, so fuunny and her projects, im exciiiiteeeed for! =) its good to hear straight from her!

  • leo

    She is so boring and the movie sounds dumb.

  • Daneiella

    what a cutie…its cute how she can be articulate and also use urban slang :D she’s got flavaaaaaaa. pcutieeee!

  • abby w

    she looks so preety!
    zanessa forever

  • Naomi

    She is so adorable. I was watching this with a wide grin on my face. She just perks up my day.

    I agree, JJ, the word is breathtaking. She is just effortlessly stylish and I wouldn’t lie, part of my anticipation for Bandslam promo involves being treated to her amazing sense of style.

    I’m so happy she’s getting these amazing opportunities and her sense of gratitude for them. I’m so stoked to see her kicking butt in SP. She had better stock up on ice since it sounds like fight training has started. the girl knows how to keep her mum on her projects.

    I also love that she’s so relaxed and just having fun with her roles for now and taking them one at a time. I suspect her strategy is a bit like Shia Lebouf’s, get good action roles, acquire an adult male fan base then take a dramatic role and stretch yourself.

    I think that’s smart, she’s just 20 and has time on her side. In between, she can still do some movies that will help her retain her younger fanbase while expanding to tap into the adult audience. She’s doing both by releasing Beastly and Sucker Punch next year.

    #11, Suzy,

    I agree, I love how adorably she manged not to answer it like a pro and how easily she handled the laker game questions without divulging anything yet keeping it natural.

    I just love the girl, plain and simple.

  • Naomi

    In my last post I meant, *keep mum on her projects.

  • ayen

    So cute. I was so glad that they got her talking about her projects and not too much into her lovelife. *claps hands* Thank you!!! I can’t wait for Sucker Punch too, and while that one is still in the works, I’ll be looking forward to Bandslam as well.

  • Dramaqween

    She’ s so so sexy goosh I love her so much

  • becky

  • Vfan 4ever

    OMG, I could not love her more *-*
    She amazes me every single day . I love that she asks the names of girls before answer their questions, she really cares about her fans.

    And she looks soooooooooooo gorgeous and stunning, I want her straight hair.
    I can´t wait for Banslam and her other uncoming proyects.

    Loveeeeeeeeeeee U, Vanessa

  • krystal

    she’s gorgeous. & i actually like this interview it’s quite entertaining.

  • BabiiVfanforeva

    gosh i love V so much :D
    I’ve watched this interview a couple of times over lol
    i love how bubbly and gorgeous she is and jj is right..v is breathtaking :)
    she answered those questions so well, great interview..i couldnt stop smiling and laughing along..her smile is contagious :D
    awesome answers too ..heheh :P loved how she answered the marriage Q :D
    Love her so much :D

  • mia

    i love her, but her voice isn’t appealing to me. it’s too squeaky…but i wish her all the best.

  • Kat

    I think she’s either nervous, guarded/shy or just very different in real life so she covers it up with an overly-i’m-so-sweet attitude to the point where she’s trying to giggle when absolutely nothing funny or witty was said, you know what I mean? I’m actually not a hater either, I love her style and generally think she’s a good actress but when it comes down to presenting herself she comes off like she doesn’t want to talk and it’s sort of forced, rehearsed and very fake like. Take Miley and take her, there’s an obvious difference in who’s being more real in interviews. I don’t know, that’s just what I think, maybe she just doesn’t like to do them.

  • Bradley

    Vanessa looks so beautiful. I can’t wait for Bandslam.

  • ivanka

    i love her attitude and i hope bandslam and her neext 3 movies give her more credit as an actress

  • Vfan

    Ummm wtf? Why are so many haters out? People are bashing her because of her voice which she has NO control over, her movie which they did’nt even see and that she’s boring but she’s acutally the opposite. You guys need to get a grip and leave her ALONE if you do’nt know what that means then look it up.

  • Bradley


    So true Vanessa will show all the haters.

  • Lyca

    i actually really like this interview, i thought it was kinda funny
    and i LOVE her hair and top

  • zanessa/scashley/ashnessa

    Aw, she really is breathtaking. And she IS sweet too :D Her hair is really sweet and it makes her look gorgeous. ..As always. :D

    Lol, ‘The Adams Family’, I used to love that show !! Now I’ll be watching how Vanessa portrays her character (Sa5m) to Wednesday from ‘The Adams Family’. Can’t wait !! :D

  • zac and vanessa

    i dont get it where she was reply about the marriage ?
    ….. i dont get it….

  • witchygirl

    very good interview!

  • vancrazed

    I think people that have to complain about her voice obviously don’t have anything else to complain about. I am exicted for this little film. It will be a great film for kids, and teens alike. It isn’t designed to be a breakthrough role. Just to leave you with a smile on your face. A little feel good film. I am so excited that that is what she is going to be a part of . I am so excited she confirmed her other two movies and am looking forward to what lies ahead for our girl.

  • jo

    i’m excited for Sucker punch! they better get Alex pettyfer for beastly, he’s hot!

  • jessie

    OMG Vanessa you’re sooooooooooooooooo cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    i love your hair is sooooooooo damn beautiful!!!!!!
    hopefully bandslam will be shown in cenima in Hong Kong!
    love ya!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Zanessa forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • kY!

    i hope her and zac do get married. Haha. She looks georgous and her movies sound great!!!!

  • zanessa•lover•2489

    Shes so gorgeous (:
    Cant wait for Bandslam!!

  • pop86

    Cute interview for Vanessa. Like the hairstyle(even the part).

    Tamika Ray from Extra is soooo annoying.

  • Cindy

    Vanessa is one beautiful and lovley woman.

  • pop86


    I thinks she guarded when she being interviewed because she knows the reporters are not interested in her projects but rather they want her to talk about her personal life.

  • Lissy

    She is really cute, i can wait to see that movie.

  • http://justjaredjr zanessa #1 fan

    i love her so much

  • Katty

    I can’t wait, I love her, and even though I’m not sure about Bandslam, I’m going to see it. I think Beastly will be great, and we’ll see a completely new side of her in Sucker Punch. I like that she is doing so many different projects, it will open up more oppurtunties for her.
    Nice move on deflecting those Zac questions, if you share too much they use it against you later.

  • Soni Hannigan

    I don’t know too much about bandslam. but I will for sure see Sucker Punch. She is so natural and beautiful. Like I have said numerous times, her and ZAc are perfect for each other
