Ashley Tisdale throws away her Disney image and shows off her sexy look on the May cover of Maxim. In the interview the actress talks about being in Scary Movie V and how passionate High School Musical fans are.
On crazy fans: “Once I Instagrammed a picture of me waking up, and the next day this older gentleman came to my parents’ house saying he wasn’t going to leave till he saw me. I was like, maybe I shouldn’t have taken a picture of me in bed?”
On which is scarier – a ghost in her room or being on set with Lindsay Lohan: “Definitely the ghost. I think Lindsay’s great! There were so many cameos, and that’s what I love about these movies. They’d write a scene, then look for cameos, and they’d just pop in and do it. It was, like, Whoa, Mike Tyson’s here, and that wasn’t even planned!”
On being a distant cousin to Ron Popeil, the Ronco guy who’s famous for the Chop-O-Matic and Pocket Fisherman: “Yeah, and I have one of his knives and the rotisserie. The family on my mom’s side, their whole business is inventing and pitching stuff. My grandfather is in infomercials. He’s a pitchman, so if you’re ever watching TV late at night, you’ll probably see him pitching knives. My great-grandfather also invented the plastic cheese grater.”
