Vanessa Hudgens Munches on French Fries & Milkshakes

Vanessa Hudgens Munches on French Fries & Milkshakes

Vanessa Hudgens recently sat down with to chat about her upcoming flick Bandslam.

The 20-year-old actress dished about going from giddy Gabriella in HSM to monotone Sa5m as well as her craziest fan encounter. Check it:

On learning to talk without any emotions: “It kind of was [hard] because I’m such a giddy person and I laugh at almost everything, so I had to refrain from that. It was a lot of fun, you know? She’s a different kind of person, so it took a lot.”

On her snacking guilty pleasure: “I like dipping French fries in a milkshake.”

On her craziest fan encounter: “Probably in Brazil. I was coming back to LA and I was with (boyfriend) Zac [Efron], and there was a security team holding hands, circling us and I was like, ‘Oh gosh, this could be a disaster. We look ridiculous!’ As soon as we walk in, I’m about to say, ‘It’s OK, you don’t have to do it,’ when a bunch of fans come running out of nowhere and it became a mob scene. It was crazy.”

On those New Moon rumors: “It was completely false. I never even talked to anyone about that movie at all. It came out of nowhere. My sister is a big fan of the books, so she’s read almost all of them and I’m friends with Nikki [Reed] who’s in that movie. So she told me about it — and I was like, ‘It would be awesome to work with you!’ But it’s not really happening right now.”

Bandslam hits theaters Friday, August 14th and be sure to keep voting for Vanessa in the Teen Choice Awards!

    I read this interview a little while ago. It’s weird when you read something and then JJJ posts it 20 minutes later.

    I just realised. This is the first time JJJ has made a reference to the fact that Vanessa is nominated for an award. Finally!! I was wondering why they never said anything about her nominations.

  • kim

    Vanessa’s idea of dipping french fries in milkshakes sounds good!
    I enjoy reading her interviews, she always comes across as a sweet person. I like her attitude and hope she does well on everything she tries.

  • zanessa4life

    Wow. It’s really rare that she mentions Zac’s name 2 times in just one interview.
    Very cute :)
    Cool interview.
    I guess Jared read our complaints about him not mentioning that shes nominated at the TCA so he changed his mind.
    good for him
    Thx Jared :)

    when vanessa returning to Los Angeles?????????????”’

  • awurbii

    When the Bandslam trailer was released, many people were complaining about the way Vanessa sounds in the movie. I remembered reading somewhere why Vanessa sounds the way she does. I found the description. It’s from Wikipeidia:

    Vanessa Hudgens as Sa5m[4] (Note: the 5 is silent), is described as “dark and emo” and yet a pretty 17-year-old girl. She talks slowly because she used to stutter, and the doctor told her that slowing down would help. She is Will’s girlfriend.

    You can check it out by just going to and typing in Bandslam.

    keep voting for vanessa at tca.

  • Trina

    I read that interview, too and here is how it starts out:

    Vanessa Hudgens seems like the girl who has it all: not only is she a talented actress, but she also has amazing vocal chops, and Zac Efron as her arm candy! It would be so easy to hate her, but her sweet personality makes that literally impossible. We all know and love Vanessa as the perky and chipper Gabriella in High School Musical, but in Bandslam, we’ll see a whole new side of her. She plays the darker and more mysterious Sam. For deets on her fave weird food combo and her first kiss, keep reading!

  • Tata

    @jenny: U can look @ ‘Vanessa Hudgens gets Sucker Punched’ and she said she was leaving in a little while 2 go film it so maybe she already left.

  • jenny

    you believe that vanessa is arrows the love for Alex Pettyfer, because cupido go looking for new partners

  • jenny


    I would not say that I write good English but I do not understand anything that says your comment VAH + ZDAE = ZDAH

  • rinee

    i LOVE french fries dipped in milkshakes!

    my favourite is mcdonalds fries dipped in wendy’s frosties (more like a soft icecream)
    SO GOOD!


    i have to try the french fries with milkshake.

    can’t wait for bandslam and keep voting for V!!!

  • selenagomezdeservesmore.

    Vote VANNESSA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

  • humble

    @jenny: I really do love your interest in Vanessa but, please don’t start something up like cupid looking for new partners. Alex & Vanessa are only filming a movie together and no cupids are flying around and shooting arrows. Until we hear otherwise that she and Zac have parted their seperate ways, please, please don’t let your comment go any further and start another war of comments. Thank You.

  • Khey

    Pls. keep voting for zac and vanessa for th tca! don’t let the jobros or robert pattinson win!

  • jenny

    you believe vanessa to be faithful to Zac Efron about alex that is very hot, can , because vanessa not married, not committed anything can happen. Like zac do not know if it is faithful to vanessa or not.

  • Marie


    I am not going to be rude. But your comments are driving me crazy. Just please stop with the drama. I bet Zac meat Alex last weekend.

    So please stop the drama and grow up Zac and Vanessa are fine.

  • mandy

    the crazyest fans ever! :)

  • Marie

    I can’t wait to see Vanessa in Bandslam. She will be amazing in movie.


    I like how you support Zac and Vanessa. But you need to stop starting Rumors about Vanessa and Alex. Alex and Vanessa are just filming a movie together that is it. Zac was with her last weekend so I bet Zac meat Alex and Alex and Zac are friends. So Please Stop with Drama.

  • pop86


    Unlike you, Vanessa is not trying to cause drama in her life. She had better thing to do.

  • Marie


    So true.

  • iluvrobpattz

    HOW ABOUT EVERYONE STOPS FIGHTING? great job JJJ for mentioning TCA awards! go baby V!

  • masbonita

    fries and shake !!! I Love this girl .

  • Cassy

    whats the point of her even being in anything else? just cause she got famous.. im sure someone better could play sa5m

  • Karen

    Believe me, the fries and milkshake combo is not new. I am more than twice Vanessa’s age and that was a big thing way back when I was a teen! LOL Let’ just say that is one of those things that have been passed down through the years.

    I started wondering if since next weekend is the 4th of July if the Beastly production will shut down for a few days which might make it possible for Vanessa to come home for a couple of days. However, I know she is in Canada and it isn’t the 4th of July there like it is in the US.

  • ashley Tizzy

    Vote vanessa Ashley and HSM3 for teen choice

    RiP Michael Jackson :(

  • awurbii


    She is famous. What is she supposed to do about it?? You are obviously not a fan of her acting. That is fine but a lot of people have a completely different opinion. No matter how you feel about her being chosen for this role, she has it. End of story.

  • http://JJJR. VAH+ZDAE=ZDAH

    @jenny: If you’ve seen the video in the thread ‘Vanessa Hudgens gets Sucker Punched’ she says that she was leaving to fo film SP soon so maybe she already left.

  • jenny


    vanessa not coming to Los Angeles for a few days of rest, I imagine that the production has to make a stop to the recordings for the actors to be vist their families.

    vanessa has a month in Montreal ,how many? months vanessa will be in Montreal

  • aw



  • Boji

    Well, I never. Fries in milkshakes! Interesting, Karen,you’re a gem.

  • Boji

    Karen, a shout out to you. Plse reply my email.

  • Charlii (zanessa Supporter)


    I Totally Agree With You :)

  • sheila

    jenny, you make it very hard for people to want to respond to your questions about vanessa. a few comments ago you were implying that vanessa might not be faithful to zac (and vice versa, you so keenly pointed out) because alex is “hot.”

    if you go to any fansite of vanessa’s, i’m sure you will find out the information you are looking for. i, for one, find you completely annoying and it has nothing to do with your language barrier.
