Vanessa Hudgens is Parade Pretty

Vanessa Hudgens is Parade Pretty

Vanessa Hudgens recently caught up with Parade magazine to chat about her upcoming movie, Bandslam.

The 20-year-old actress dished to the mag about biting her tongue, getting her mom, Gina fired and how she really fell in love with acting. Check it:

On getting her mom, Gina, fired from one job: “I got her fired once. I was calling her at work way too much, because I missed her. Back then, I was so shy, I did not want to leave her side. I would call her at work nonstop, to the point where she got fired. It was horrible.”

On how she dealt with life after her nude picture surfaced: “That’s why I’m extremely guarded. I really do try to watch everything I say. Because one little tiny slip, and it’s like the world is coming to an end! It is hard. I do always have a wall up. But I feel by doing it, I keep myself safe. I try to live my life, do what I want, and just let everything else follow along. I try not to read the blogs or what people say about me. Because that’s what brings everybody down—no matter what you do, you’re always going to have haters.”

On how she caught the acting bug: “My parents had Grease lying around, and I watched that and fell in love with it. It was interesting to see people moving stories along with songs—it was exciting and different. West Side Story was one of my favorites. [High School Musical] was the best thing that could and possibly will ever happen to me. I got to make lifelong friends. I had the most incredible time of my life.”

Vanessa‘s Parade cover will be in Sunday’s newspapers nationwide this weekend, July 26. Bandslam hits theaters Friday, August 14.

    when i was like 6
    i was too afraid to go to school
    so i stayed with my mom
    and bothered her clients
    she didnt get fired
    but i was still too much trouble

    I love this girl!

    She’s so grounded and mature for her age. I’m not surprised her parents are so proud. They deserve to be. They’ve raised an amazing and down to earth young woman. I’m not related to her yet I couldn’t be prouder.

    Can’t wait for the photoshoot and the issue.

  • awurbii

    Another great interview!! The shots are also amazing. They were around for a little while but they were removed because they were leaked photos. Vanessa does seem like a private person. Which makes sense considering what she’s been through and the industry that she’s in.

    I’ve noticed that a lot of comments get removed. I read some comments on threads, I come back and their gone. I’ve had my comments removed even though I have not written anything rude or vulgar. I’m a little confused with how the comments are being managed,

  • Katty

    I can’t wait until the mag’s pix and full interview reach the web, I really want to see it.
    She does sound mature, and guarded, which is good, I guess, for someone in this business. You never know the reporters might do if they know too much.
    Can’t wait for all her projects!
    (I also hope to see a ZV siting soon, but this is a V thread, and I get that, so this is the last of that)
