Vanessa Hudgens: 'Lindy Definitely Stands Out' in Beastly

Vanessa Hudgens: 'Lindy Definitely Stands Out' in Beastly

During the next two months, you’ll be hearing a lot about Vanessa Hudgens — she has two very different movies coming out within two weeks of each other.

The 22-year-old actress sat down with to chat about her first one, Beastly, opposite Alex Pettyfer. Check out what she had to say:

On her character, Lindy Owens: “Our version is very posh and sleek and very sophisticated. It’s supposed to be in an extremely wealthy school, so Lindy definitely stands out from everyone else. He slowly starts to follow her, and she kinds of takes refuge with him and they just slowly fall for each other, because he ends up having a great soul and kind of wins her over from the sweet things he does for her.”

On bonding with director Daniel Barnz: “Yeah, I’m in love with Daniel. I think he’s such an incredible director. He’s helped so much in character involvement and just kind of figuring out mannerisms to play with my character and a way of speech and just truly developing the character to the fullest. He’s so smart.”

On filming the stunt scenes: “(laughs) I’ve had one stunt already, which was quite frightening ’cause I’m afraid of heights, and I had to climb up a ladder, hold onto something upside down, they rigged me and I was literally hanging upside down on a pole, and then they would let the latch go, and they’d count ’3,2,1′ and then I’d let go and fall into Alex’s arms.”

  • Anibal

    isn’t she lovely? <3

  • maria

    I love how she has 3 very different roles out this year. And my favorite thing about her acting, is that she is very expressive with her face, and is so believable in the different roles she’s had. Like I never thought of Gabriella for one second while watching her character Sa5m in Bandslam. Like Alex said about her, she is so subtle, and I can’t wait to see her as Lindy. This is a quote from ALex in a recent interview:

    Vanessa’s such a beautiful human being. She’s so humble, so nice, and I think the finest kind of acting is the one when you show so much emotion but so subtly and that’s how talented she is. She is a very down to earth human being and this is the first chance she’s really been given to really show her potential, and she’s really done it well.

    I couldn’t have said it better!! Thanks, Alex Pettyfer!

  • joan

    i can`t wait love Nessa

  • daniel

    @maria: alex Said That?i have no doubt.. i mean he’s English and knows how to talk about a woman unlike many Americans, I am glad that Vanessa has acted with him

  • mike

    just wish to see the movie already

  • Zanessa/scashley/ashnessa

    She’s brave though !! To go through with that.. I’d be terrified. Ah, I love her and I can’t wait to see this ! Just 2 more months !! It’s amazing how time goes by.

  • daniel

    i heard rumors by a friend that they tested the film last weekend in Orange County and that it scored high numbers!
    Was anyonelive on orange county or close ?

  • Katty

    That interviewer wasn’t the best in my opinion, didn’t ask the best questions. But meeting big stars must be intimidating.

    Can’t wait for Beastly!

  • منتدى نسائي

    so excited to see this movie!

  • jessica

    OMG icant wait to see this movie.
    my sister was just beside vanessa iin this movie

  • Zanessa/VanessaFreak

    Next Two Months let’s say for the whole year because after the movies come out there will be alot of red carpet for her and then promoting the two movies takes more than two months and then we have Journey Two by the time she’s finished promoting these two movies and after Journey Two comes out a whole bunch a premieres and red carpet and promos then after that in 2012 there would be a whole lot of awards for her plus this summer with awards show if they put her movies in nomination for this year and not next year cuz Two award shows are already gone so we will see her at them next year :)


    Great interview the whole version she seems so smart I know she repeats herself but still very opened and honest. Thank God she said she’s not really a role model because it is sooo hard to be one and IT HAS SOO MUCH EXPECTATIONS!

    She is who she is that’s why we love her she wouldn’t change for anyone :]

    Admitting her voice is high she knows that she can’t do anything about that (For the haters who make fun of her voice) Get over it!

    Can’t wait for Beastly! Again I wish Vanessa will show others she is more than just ‘Gabriella’ or ‘pretty girl’ WOOT VANESSA!

  • nathalia

    excited for this movie
    vanessa going to be amazing

  • kyle

    2011 is definitely Vanessa’s year to shine. Can’t wait for Beastly, Sucker Punch and Journey. Yay!!!

  • Sizuka

    … love you girl …..
    btw, I miss “Zanessasweetheart” …

  • roxana

    Oh Vanessa! cant wait for beaslty..this movie is gonna rock. i can totally see the chemistry between her and Alex-AMAZING! I love Vanessa, shes incredible. March can you please hurry up and come already??? :)

  • wrestler

    where can i find the interview pls?

  • Karen

    I don’t understand what people want with her voice. It is very nice. I mean, she is this little petite things and she is not going to have some husky low voice. He vocal chords are small, not that she can’t sing big notes, just that she is not “built” to have some low type voice. Plus, she is YOUNG.

    Those who complain about her voice just want to insult or demean something about her. She has this beautiful singing voice that is actually had some opera training. And because she gained attention for doing a movie who’s character sings like an angel, then that is what people are going to find to be ugly about. There are several actors/actresses I find who has an annoying voice but it IS their voice. I find it hard to listen to Holly Hunter but she does what she does well—acting.

  • Rose

    @Karen: Ha…ha…@Karen ,I love you girl ,every time they are looking some pointless reason for there comment,what is the problem of her voice ?? She is a great singger ,she is AMAZING and she is beautiful ,the haters is always her admirer ,you know why??they are the one concentrating to her mestake!!!!!!!!!ha………..ha……..ha…….they like her but they don’t want to accept to there self the jealousy in there heart is there,’BeASTLy Well be #1 in box office this march!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!,they have a great cast,vanes you rock!!!!!!!!!

  • mariam

    guys,BEASTLY IS COMMINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://lala aiwen

    i can’t wait to see it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!OMG!!!!!!!!

  • Tata

    Can’t wait to see the movie!!! Love you, Nessa!

  • Fauve

    I cannot wait to see all 3 movies of Vanessa’s and multiple times at that the more we go the more of a box office hit she will be and then she will finally be seen as more then just HSM. People need to let her grow develop her craft and see what niche she has in which genre. I think Beastly will touch a lot of peoples hearts, Sucker Punch will show she can kick butt, and Journey 2 takes her back to her roots. This is the Year of the Hudgens.

  • mykamicks

    All I can say, I Love this girl…. Im Gonna dying see her on the big screen again.

  • http://jjj marcy
