The October 2013 Marie Claire issue hits stands today and the cover is graced by none other than the beautiful Vanessa Hudgens.
From this cover shoot, its clear that the 24-year-old has left her bubbly High School Musical days behind her and opted for a more grown up (and sexy) look. This includes starring in more bold and risky movies such as Spring Breakers where Hudgens plays a college student who finds herself in the company of drug dealers. More recently, Hudgens took on soon-to-be-released action movie, Machete Kills.
Although her new movie roles and steamy Marie Claire photos depict a bold and fearless girl, Hudgens admits to being a shy child and took up acting to overcome the fear. Through this, Hudgens found her calling.
John Cusack, who recently co-stared with Hudgens in the thriller The Frozen Ground, told Marie Claire, “She’s very mature for her age. She was chained up and most of her clothes were off and [her character] had just been raped. She wasn’t concerned about her ability as an actress. She was just on top of it.”
Ex-boyfriends, leaked nude pictures, and poparazzi mistaking white chocolate for cocaine? The fearless actress dished it all to Marie Claire. Read more here and check out the steamy cover shoot below:
