Neil Patrick Harris: Vanessa Hudgens is the Coolest Chick

Neil Patrick Harris: Vanessa Hudgens is the Coolest Chick

Neil Patrick Harris has nothing but praises for his Beastly costars, Vanessa Hudgens and Alex Pettyfer.

Check out what he dished to MTV about the flick, Vanessa and his own character, Will:

On the Beastly bunch: “Mary-Kate Olsen is a supporting star; Vanessa Hudgens is the lead — she’s gorgeous, super talented and the coolest chick you would ever want to meet; Alex Pettyfer is in it — a new guy, Brit, gorgeous, super talented as well.”

On re-telling the classic fairytale: “This is a very classy movie, actually. It looks great. I think the performances are strong. I think it’s better than your average teen film. I think it’s great to see Alex — who plays the lead guy — trying to win over Vanessa’s character, because she ends up at the [apartment]; there’s a whole sequence where he’s giving her gifts and hoping that she likes him and she doesn’t — it’s very Beauty and the Beast.”

On his own character, Will: “I play a blind dude. I have a kinship with him [Alex's character], because I also have a physical disability that I have to go beyond. So I teach him a thing or two.”

Beastly opens everywhere on July 30th

    what an honor that nph said that to v.. im proud of her:)

  • vfan

    Aww, that is soo nice of NPH to say that…and boy is he right. :)

  • Vanessa lover

    So proud of vanessa. She has been through a lot and people don’t think she has talent, when she does. People in this business have nothing but good things to say. Zack Snyder was little on the edge when he heard that Vanessa was going to be auditioning for the part and he sees the audition and is completely blown away. She does have talent and i think some should stop critizing her. She has more talent in her right hand than a lot people who critize her, who say she doesn’t have talent at all.

    Can’t wait for beastly and sp!

  • Tiffany

    What a classy guy!!!!!!!!! She really is the coolest though. Get all of V’s clothes here

  • Danielle

    Of course she is the coolest girl… I mean, if you said so =)

    @@itsmehannaa: she is, you’re not :)


    Ohhh he’s so sweet!!.. Vanessa seems to be a wonderful, everybody who works with her always have good words about her!!

    ¡¡Vanessa we love you from Spain!!

  • Joochi

    Vanessa has put her heart and soul in this craft that she brings to us and who watch her, my analysis of her is that, she is a minority in the business and she has to work alot harder for what she wants and by golly she is doing just that. Vanessa is the picture of what USA is today, you can be anything you want to be with hard work, honesty, human mistakes and she’s perservers day in and day out. Instead of some people being so critical of her they should really learn from her. Being a celebrity will always have likes and dislikes that’s part of the business, she’s on the right path for her future.

  • suzy

    love love what he said about V.

  • kami

    yeah for what nph said. “she’s gorgeous, super talented and the coolest chick you would ever want to meet”
