Vanessa’s Drastic Image Change
Determined to ditch her cutesy High School Musical image and be taken seriously, Vanessa Hudgenshas undergone a drastic image change which has seen her hanging out with drug addicts, revealing her flesh and getting tattoos, leaving many to question is she trying too hard?
Since finishing the Disney franchise and splitting from her co-star Zac Efron, the star has been desperate to appeal to a more adult market and acquire more serious roles, insisting, “I’m not the same girl I was five years ago. Hopefully with the choices I’m making, people will start to see that I’m not just little Gabriella.”
Her recent dark character in Sucker Punch, proved she’s capable of taking on bigger roles, admitting, “It’s totally my Angelina Jolie part. People are either going to love me for doing it or hate me for doing it.” Yet desperate still to erase her child fame image the actress is working on her reputation outside of film. She recently admitted, “I love going to the drum circle down there (Venice Beach). Every now and then someone will let me join in and bang on their drums. I just love people who are completely free, even if they are drug addicts, who sometimes freak me out. I’m figuring out how to be a better person while observing other people.”
The 22-year-old recently posted pictures online of her holding a beer in hand while getting a tattoo by Rihanna’s fave artist Bang Bang in New York, and last week she proudly flashed her midriff, while front row of the Lakers game. OK, enough already, you’re grown up, we’ve got it!
