And her हाल का roles are ones that’d make Gabriella Montez blush: She plays the daughter of a drug addict in अगला year’s Beastly and a tough, edgy girl in the action कल्पना Sucker Punch…
Glamour Magazine: आप were a डिज़्नी girl. Do आप feel pressured to behave a certain way?
It’s funny because before High School Musical, I wanted to be a nitty-gritty actress. And High School Musical came along, and, I was like, “Oh my god, fun!” But the और we did it, the और prude I became… When I am around kids and they come up to me, of course I am going to act a certain way, but at the end of the day, I’m doing this for myself. I’m going to be doing फिल्में kids can’t watch.
Glamour Magazine: Where do आप see yourself either in work या in life in five years? Will आप be married? Will आप have kids?
Oh my goodness! [Laughs.] I’m becoming और adventurous. When I was younger, I used to be super, super shy. I still find myself being scared of things. I want to try doing sportier things, पतंग surfing and paddle surfing – I think it would give me extra confidence.
Glamour Magazine: When is the last time आप felt awkward?
Last night, actually. Going to events gives me such anxiety. [Laughs.]
Glamour Magazine: How so?
I get hot flashes! [Laughs.] I can’t breathe, and I get claustrophobic. It’s a very odd business. I do it because I प्यार acting, but I don’t know if I’ll ever get used to it.
Glamour Magazine: The rumor mill says that आप and your cute boyfriend are house-hunting.
Glamour Magazine: No truth to that?
I mean, maybe…maybe house-hunting for houses on our own. I mean…which, I’m not. And he’s not, at the moment. So no. No. I just bought my house two years ago, and I adore it. I have this Moroccan-y room on the चोटी, शीर्ष floor. It’s the sexy cool room that I’ve always wanted.
Glamour Magazine: I feel like a lot of प्रशंसकों adore that you’re going out with Zac, and there’s probably some girls who hate it. How do आप deal with that?
We got lucky because we started off together, so I think people like us because they fell in प्यार with the characters.
Glamour Magazine: Was it प्यार at first sight?
Right off the bat, we had a connection. I think everybody could see it. When we had our audition, they paired us together. And he was adorable. I mean, he wasn’t the guy that he is today. Like, he had a gap in his teeth. Yeah! आप wanna see? He was a whole different person. Hold on! [Hudgens reaches for her iPhone to find a चित्र of Zac on it. ] You’ll laugh!
Glamour Magazine: आप were saying he’s different now. How?
He’s just grown up. He doesn’t have his gap anymore. I look at him, and I see a man.
Glamour Magazine: So आप have a mature relationship?
I guess. I think that we inspire each other. [I love] having someone to grow with.
Glamour Magazine: Ever have moments of jealousy?
Every relationship’s all about trust. I think I used to. But now, not really.
Glamour Magazine: आप probably hate this question, but topless चित्रो of आप have appeared on the Web. How do आप bounce back? या have आप bounced back?
I think it has made me stronger. But it still hurts. It sucks because [the चित्रो were] supposed to be private, but at the same time a lot of अभिनेत्रियों do it [in movies]. Eventually, I’m sure that I will [too]. But I don’t know if I would be able to do it now.
Glamour Magazine: आप were photographed for Glamour with kittens. Do आप like animals?
I प्यार animals. Love, love, love, प्यार animals. I have a toy poodle, Shadow. She’s a little whippersnapper! And I प्यार little monkeys.
Glamour Magazine: You’re 21 now. What’s the most हाल का grown-up thing आप did?
I wrote a check today! For my dialect coach. But I have such a carefree spirit that I will be a kid at 80. I go to the doctor’s office and sometimes write that I’m 18.
Glamour Magazine: But it seems like you’ve grown up earlier and faster than so many girls do.
It’s true. आप can’t be a kid in this business. आप will not survive.
Glamour Magazine: Do आप feel like आप grew up too fast?
Maybe. And maybe that’s the reason why I am silly at 21. But I don’t regret it. And if I wasn’t how I was when I was younger, I wouldn’t be how I am today? आप know. And I प्यार the way I am today.
Glamour Magazine: It’s our Jeans Issue, so I have to ask: How many pairs of jeans do आप have?
Oh my god, probably 100.
Glamour Magazine: You’re the Imelda Marcos of jeans! What’s your go-to brand?
Current/Elliot या J Brand.
Glamour Magazine: What’s your प्रिय pair of jeans?
My J Brand 10-inch skinny leg. They are cropped, but because I’m so short, they fit me perfectly.
