Vanessa Hudgens sticks out her tongue on the newest cover of Paper magazine. She poses dramatically in a shirt reading ‘Spring Break’ – the name of her latest movie. In the interview she dishes on growing up on the Disney Channel, acting with James Franco, and those infamous nude photos.
On being cast in Disney’s High School Musical: “In 10,000 hours, they say you can master anything. 10,000 hours in Disneyland and you’re the queen of Disney.”
On the 2007 nude photographs that ended up on the Internet: “That was just a really (expletive) situation that sucked. That was by far the worst moment of my career.”
On co-star James Franco: “I saw that James was already attached and I am his biggest fan. I thought, ‘I need to be in this movie.’ “I still don’t know him. I have no idea who James Franco is. I know who Alien is. He’s that into method acting. He comes on set as his character. In between scenes, he is still his character. When I first saw him, I was speechless because he just completely transformed himself. The way he talked, with that accent… Everything he does is so organic.”
