Vanessa Hudgens looks stunning on the January 2013 cover of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia. Inside the issue, the 23-year-old revealed the challenges of being an actress.
Speaking about the film “Gimme Shelter,” she said, “I had to chop off all my hair and live in a pregnant woman’s shelter for about two weeks before we even started filming to get me in my headspace. It was a bit of a shock. It’s a world that I’ve never had a chance of looking into, let alone be a part of, and I remember calling my mom on the first night, and I was like ‘Mom, what have I gotten myself into?’ It was a lot of fun after I got past those initial feelings of shock at the environment.”
Her upcoming film, “Spring Breakers,” gave Hudgens the chance to experience something different. “I’ve never been on spring break, I’ve never gone to college or had this group of girlfriends to go away with. I became very, very close with these girls. We had such an amazing experience together; it felt like it was our own little spring break. We allowed ourselves to let loose and push each other and see how far we could take it.”
