Vanessa Hudgens Reveals the 'Grease: Live!' Role She Originally Wanted

Vanessa Hudgens and Julianne Hough buddy up at AOL Build on Monday (January 18) in New York City.

The 27-year-old actresses were joined by their co-stars Carlos PenaVega and Aaron Tveit as they chatted about the January 31 production.

Vanessa told the audience that she was shocked when she found out she was being considered for the character Rizzo instead of Sandy.

“When I heard they were doing this, my manager called me and said, ‘Yeah, they’re doing Grease, and they’re interesting in you for Rizzo,’” Vanessa said. “I’m, like, ‘Are you sure? Not Sandy?’ I always saw myself as Sandy. I was always the good girl in my mind. Then I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, Rizzo is so amazing. This is gonna be so much fun.’”
