Vanessa Hudgens To Cover Self Magazine

Vanessa Hudgens To Cover Self Magazine

Vanessa Hudgens will take the May 2009 cover of Self Magazine.

The 20-year-old former High School Musical sweetheart recently purchased her own home, which interior designer Kenneth Brown will be decorating (he’s also doing her boyfriend Zac Efron‘s home too).

“I keep a Taser in my purse for self-defense,” Vanessa said. “I’m moving into a house by myself, and it’s scary.”

As for going au naturel, Ms. Hudgens shared, “Sometimes I feel prettier without makeup. You take it off and you’re like, Oh, there I am! But red lips make me feel sexy . . . It brings out the vixen in you.”

Young Hollywood is definitely becoming bankable. 19-year-old Taylor Swift took the mag’s March 2009 cover.

Vanessa is currently in New York City to support Zac, who’s hosting Saturday Night Live TONIGHT @ 11:30PM ET/PT on NBC.

    Well, I think its good seeing yourself without make up. Like you really are, and of course being comfortable with that is a must.

    Yes rouge lip sticks can make you feel sexy, of course, as well as many other things, but as I already said you should be in mind who you really are.

  • athena

    Wow, she gets a cover of Self magazine. I really like Vanessa, and think the media is responsible for having the editorial publications resort to putting celebrities on their covers. It’s not as if they’re sharing such profound information that will make a difference, or impact someone’s life…What will I learn from a 20year old accept she was allowed to figure herself for exposing herself privately and it went public…for the second chance opportunity that was given to her to prove she’s innocent, sound, and loves to shop…Okay, I’m ranting…I think Vanessa being on the cover of Self is irrelevant or maybe I’m just missing what their publication stands for.

  • Athenais

    she’s so beautiful …. I like this photo

    It’s Brazilian shoot ?

  • suzy

    She looks gorgeous and I can’t wait to see the cover.

  • Bee

    We just have to accept magazines are sell outs now. Anything to make a few dollars. Didn’t JJ just say young hollywood is bankable. Magazines that use to be credible only want a piece of the money pie.

    Vanessa is pretty to look at, but then what?

  • kathy

    beautiful. can’t wait to get a copy

  • cutie

    She is a beautiful girl and seems very sweet.

  • go sox

    You people are ridiculous. Magazines need an attractive cover, and help sell their product. “Self” is obviously aware of Vanessa’s beauty and the fact that she is “bankable”. Yeah, she’s definitely pretty to look at, and then?

    Well, she’s an up and coming young actress, with a good following, a nice start to her career, and great potential!! The camera loves her, and we will be seeing lots of this beautiful young woman. She’s talented, works hard, and keeps her head on straight.

    She deserves a lot more credit than you give her.

  • rona

    i love you baby v!!!

  • Lori

    Awww she looks absolutely Gorgeous as always. can’t wait to read it
    Love her

  • gracemarie

    Loco:

    You remind of the ctiric when King Kong came out they said of Jessica Lange “She’s pretty to look at, now what” and the general consesus was that’s all she had to offer. WRONG!!

    Now she (Jessica) is one of only a very very few actress (Ingrid Bergman, Meryl Streep) to win a academy award in both Actress in a Supporting Role and Actress in a Leading Role but back then critics and fan looked and shook their heads. Their “now what” became “oh hell who would havve guessed”. The same was true for oscar winners Maria Tomei, Mira Sorvino, Jennifer Conolly and I could go on.

    So stay tuned you never know what’s really inside a person until they get the chance to show you. I think a lot of people where V is concerned may get “Sucker Punched”. LOL

  • kgg

    Hi Go Sox! I’m lovin’ both shots of V in Self magazine. Wow! She’s just gorgeous! Don’t pay attention to the weak-minded haters on here. Vanessa could save a bus load of kids from going over a cliff and they’ll still find something wrong with her.

    They are wishing they were as pretty and fit as Vanessa….LOL

  • http://jjjj miley

  • Vanessa Hudgens fan

    Vanessa looks beautiful. I think it is sweet that Vanessa is in Nyc to support her Boyfriend Zac.

  • VAshFanForLife

    :) IIIIIIIIIIIIIIII looooooooooooooovveeeeeeeee VAAAAAAANEESSAAA!!
    she is soooooo cute and sexy

  • go sox

    kgg, you got that right, hon! She does look gorgeous. Truly. Her different looks are just amazing. The cover shot, from what little we can see, makes her look sweet, but sexy, and very, VERY tasteful for a bikini shot!! In the full page picture, she looks amazing, in a very different way: she still looks sexy, and a bit more sultry. This girl is SO versatile!!

    How else can you explain her going from sweet Gabriella to Blondie in Sucker Punch, wielding a weapon and taking people out??? She can do it, very easily!!

  • Soni hannigan

    I think Vanessa is beautiful and I love seeing her on magazines. I am a big fan of both Zac and Vanessa. So it is okay to see them on any magazines. Just my opinion!

    What goes around comes around. I hope everything you wish for other people comes true for you.

    This young woman looks absolutely gorgeous for what I can see of the cover. I’m looking forward to seeing what she has to offer. Hopefully, she will make great decisions.

    # 30 HATE VANESSA AS HELL

    GET A LIFE. HONESTLY WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE??

    idiots that say that ashley’s copying vanessa and vanessa’s copying ashley don’t have common sense. no one pays attention to them. anybody who called ashley that is stupid because her cover was great too. just because someone else does it. it doesn’t mean you have to do it. it makes you look so stupid to the point where i can’t describe it and by the way its a different magazine. totally different cover.

    she’s ugly. are you blind??? you don’t have to think she’s beautiful, we all have different tastes but we can all agree that she’s not ugly.if u don’t like her just skip the damn post. and LEARN TO HAVE RESPECT FOR PEOPLE FAMOUS OR NOT!!!!

    oh and by the way, vanessa looks great. awesome that she has that cover!! :D

  • tee

    Love this girl, she is one of the up and coming young actresses in hollywood. I can’t see how someone saying negative things about Ashley has anything to do with her. I love how people who hate her can’t really find anything new to say. She is beautiful only a blind or prejugdiced person would say differently.

  • diva

    oh u haters never amaze me if u take time out of ur day for Vanessa and type a comment no less! She looks gorgeous on the cover she has a great look all exotic looking ppl love that in la la land!

  • Kelly

    Jared how the fuck do you that Vanessa is in NYC to support Zac there are no pics.

  • joesef

    She’s relly Sexy , oH i relly love her

    and i’m totally Gonne to buy it

  • chels

    vanessa is so cutee… haters burn in hell she is GORGEUS..

    CUTE SHE IS WITH ZAC SUPPORTING=)

  • go sox

    Don’t make general comments about ALL Vanessa fans. Most of us DO NOT trash or insult Ashley. Vanessa did not COPY Ashley. The magazines themselves dictate who goes on the cover, wearing what they want them to. I doubt she had much say in what she was wearing. It’s a May issue, and the start of bathing suit season. So, stop being so immature.

  • jess!
  • LIZZIE

    #30 ur a BITCH

    jared can u plz remove no. 30′s comment ? just reading that fugly whor’s comment makes me wanna gag. who the hell do u think u are #30? that’s not an opinion – that’s just being bitchy. i don’t see u on a magazine cover and i don’t see you being asked to be neutrogena’s spokesperson cuz oh wait, that’s VANESSA. hate comments should make sense. ugh just typing this isn’t enough i wish somebody’d slap some sense into you.

  • gottaloveit

    #36/Kelly–there are pics of Vanessa arriving at JFK early Thursday morning after taking the red eye from LA. And fans who were at NBC studios hoping to get a glimpse of Zac have seen her walking in to watch Zac’s rehearsals for SNL.

  • awurbii

    #47 …she has a movie coming out and she’s she’s supposed to start filming another movie soon. SHE HAS A JOB!
    what’s up woth everyone?? if they don’t see a celebrity promoting something they automatically assume their out of work. IT’S DUMB.GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT BEFORE YOU COMMENT.
