Vanessa Hudgens Talks Zac Efron & Quentin Tarantino

Vanessa Hudgens Talks Zac Efron & Quentin Tarantino

Vanessa Hudgens strikes a sexy pose in this shot from Details magazine’s latest issue.

Here’s what the 22-year-old Sucker Punch actress, wearing a D&G cami, had to share:

On training for Sucker Punch: “We trained with Navy Seals. We were machines, You could NOT f— with us.”

On working with Michael Caine for Journey 2: “He’s uh-mazing. Not only is he uh-mazingly, stupidly talented, but he still kind of hits on me. All the time. If it was anybody else, I’d be like ‘Who the hell do you think you are?’ But because it’s Michael Caine, I’m, like, ‘Sock it to me more, baby, come on!’ I.Frickin.Love.Him.”

On Zac Efron: “We’re still friends. Who knows what the future will bring. We’re figuring this out.”

On talking to Quentin Tarantino at a post-Oscar party: “….probably after a few drinks I told him ‘We’ve gotta do something together.’ … “Slowly, I’ve gained balls. I used to be very shy. Nothing has happened with Tarantino yet, but I definitely tried to plant my seed. Hopefully he won’t look back and think, ‘Oh my God. That crazy b—-.”

    Vanessa is sounding so happy in this interview, simply sitting her reading it makes me smile.

    As for their relationship, whatever seems to be happening, cause lets face it, this didn’t ecaxtly help, i love them both, will support them both, and whatever the furture brings, the future brings :)

    I know she KINDA confirmed it but i still believe Zanessa are together
    if you read the too FAB one you will see they were spotted maing out in an LA club weeks after so ZANESSA LIVES ON
    KTZLF!!! (Keep The Zanessa Love Flowing)

  • r

    @paula: this interview was done 3 days after the ‘break up’ story came out. So, before they were making out all over each other in LA and him visiting her in NC. Get your facts straight

  • vfan

    She looks smokin HOTTTTTT!!!!
    Wow, wish I had a body like that!
    Bet zac’s kickin himself now..Haha!
    Vanessa Rocks and I cannot wait for Sucker Punch and Beastly! :)

  • Jen

    @CarpeDiem: If its not a confirmation that there’s been a break-up, why make the statement that they are “still friends”. And if they are still together, what would exactly would they need to “figure out.” I think some people are in denial here. They’re clearly done.

  • paw

    i don’t’ see anything wrong with that either. Vanessa has her own career, though many don’t want to see it. She’s booking her own films outright, not smooching for roles but auditioning and winning roles. she’s more than arm candy and I think the public is about to find out just how much,
    if you don’t think so, many you need to go back and read what critics (who actually KNOW film), have said about her. I”ll just post a few and ask that many of you who feel to need to post stupid comments about how untalented she is, go read up..cause clearly the industry itself doesn’t think so:
    John Anderson (New York Times): “Ms. Hudgens’s character, Sa5m (“The five is silent”), is an emo girl who speaks slowly because of a stutter, resembles Ally Sheedy in “The Breakfast Club” and is ostensibly the female lead, even if Ms. Hudgens argues to the contrary. [...] It’s clear from the start, however, that Ms. Hudgens is the movie’s loaded gun and is going to go off spectacularly.

    or maybe this one:
    Matthew Turner (Bandslam, View London): “Connell’s a little dopey in the lead, but he has good chemistry with Hudgens, who gets to display some impressive comic timing and is allowed to be a lot sexier here than she was in the High School Musical movies.”
    or one more I have of over the 40 that were given by TOP critics:
    James Gordon (Bandslam, YuBlog): “Even Hudgens, who’s acting talent I would have put beside that of your average flee, is incredible in this weird, outsider role. If Zefron failed to escape Troy Bolton in 17 Again, Vanessa more than manages to escape the heels of Gabriella, and create a much more rounded character. [...] 100 minutes ago, I’d have never said something like this but I’m going to go there, and yes, I’m going to mean it: A movie with Vanessa Hudgens has just become one of my favourite movies this year.”

    i’ll just say…be educated before you make stupid comments. these men are top critics, that have been in the industry for years, and have watched thousands of films..when the vast majority of them are saying the same thing, many of you need to wake up and realize, that this is only the beginning for Ms. Hudgens.

    I’ll be glad to post stellar Beastly and Sucker Punch critiques as they come….(some of them already are and are quite completely of her as well)

    way to go vanessa! youv’e earned this! you’ve waited now good things have good!! Go Girl!!

    Why dont some others face reality this interview is BEFORE BEFORE BEFORE they are together in LA and he joins her in NC even the interviewer acknowledges she may not have been telling the whole story

    Why dont you deal

  • maeli

    gorgeous girl

  • Tata

    yeah, she looks gorgeous here! sexy photoshoot!

  • Zac fan1

    @Haters Suck!: You’re an idiot. There were plenty of pics of her in December and the beginning of January. There weren’t any pics of them at Eden and she most certainly did not go to NO and spend his birthday with him. By the way, I would like to commend you on your creativity for the “you’re full of sh**” comment, but it is completely lacking in originality.

  • Zac fan1

    @peggy: If he had been trying for years to change his image, it would have been changed by now. The shoot with the model, seriously? He should have been skinned alive. His details interview, the same interview where he basically said that only being with Vanessa was in his heart. Flirting with his co-stars, well, unfortunately he didn’t have Michael Caine as a co-star or it would have been alright. See, Vanessa flirting with him is just as absurd as your statement. Co-stars are suppose to have chemistry and make us believe it. Lastly, I never said that she had been trying to change her image previously. I believe that that is her intention now. I also never said that there was anything wrong with her wanting that or in her ending the relationship. She’s young and she should experience life. I just don’t understand why it is okay for her but Zac was completely bashed and degraded. Things should be fair for them both.

  • biki

    so this was made up in december cuz even the interviewer said that 3 week later they were seen together so this is old they are posting this now just to again blow our minds and waht she meant with that old man that he is puting her oil she was jokink she said that she is joking i read the artical and it was all in past tense so it was just story ok?now i just read on aonother article that the reps said thet they are bac but not ofically. they are just takin it slow.

  • lame

    I honestly think it was Vanessa who really pulled the plug on the relationship and not Zac. I suspected it and i think this interview made it clear …at least IMO. Not sure if the “break” was meant to be a real break or a break from publicity. It got leaked somehow…probably was never meant to be public. She seems laser focused on her career and extremely busy. This would explain his behavior lately with the excessive drinking and constant travel to be on set with her i.e. Hawaii and NC. I think people do that type of stuff when they are trying to hang on to someone they fear are slowly slipping away. But i don’t know those two personally so who knows. Zac does look very unhappy lately, you can see it in his eyes… even if it’s subtle…it’s there. However, pap pictures give a clue– never tell the whole story. I think Vanessa is making good choices for herself and I really hope this will be her year to shine — free from scrutiny. She seems to have worked hard. I hope Zac rethinks his management situation and distances himself away from his current publicity team. He’s so talented. I’m sorry Gina, but i don’t think you have been doing well by this guy. He needs a Ken Sunshine or someone of similar caliber. I guess we’ll see what happens. Never a dull moment on a Zac or Vanessa thread these days:)

  • Louise

    I’m glad she had the guts to say something instead of letting people guess whats going on, even if it’s really not our business.

    I used to think they were great together too but it looks to me like they are both growing up, evolving and looking for other challenges.

    It’s very difficult to continue to be a couple after so long and with the added pressure of distance when filming and being in the public eye it must be very weird and frustrating.

    Who know’s maybe Zac is a little annoyed by the roles Vanessa has gotten lately. I cant say I’m not looking forward to her films this year. I havent even watched Charlie St

    Random Art: Diddy~Dirty Money iHatethatYouloveMe

  • biki

    and for those who said that wath she made with her pics that they are porn or something i dont see here nothing like that if u want to see the pics like that porn go to see on playboy and u will see that that is difrent. the pics are just sexy nothing else. and wath she meant with figure out things she meant that they are so much busy and dont have time ok. and plus i told u this was made 3 days ago ehen they broke up. now the reps said that they are back but not oficaly. and vanessa it is not like that for those who said that in future she will be slot or something cuz she is not like that and she has very good family and i dont thingk that her mother will let her do the stupid things cuz they are not like other acterres familis which are using theirs kids fame and taking drugs and let them do wath ever they want she is not like thet. and i will say again this is made up 3 days before break up if the break up was tru at all. it is false cuz it is not confirmed.the raps already said that they are back but not oficaly.

  • Lady

    @dont messa with the nessa: if this was true. i would think the report would be all over this. on dec 31.notherbut lie. i don’t zac new her then.if it was true would zac tell vanessa he want out i fine a new girlfreind. i not in love with you.went did zac have time to see her went he was with vanessa all the time.

  • Haters Suck!

    @zac fan 1
    actually you’re the idiot. don’t like my you’re full of $hit comment. Fine I’ll be more direct. How bout F*CK YOU! Yes she did fly to NO to see zac on his birthday there were Twitter sightings all over the place about this and from there she went to Hawaii. I meant the day after Eden where we got pictures and I’d like to point out that this interview took place well BEFORE eden and NC happend. But you go ahead and think zac’s the perfect guy who never makes any mistakes. All I know is barley a week after he goes and is all romantic with her in NC he’s hooking up with random people. go read my response to you on jjj

  • biki

    @dont messa with the nessa: omg teresa already said that they are just friends ok i read on hollywood 411 and i saw an video that she says that he was on the premire just to see the film if this was true now the reps would confirmed or them selfs it is not confirmed and there is no video and no pics. raps already said that zanessa are back but not oficaly u stupid dont belive everything wath u will read ok u are all make me nervous.just wait and u ll see they now that they are making us nervous and they are playing with us. the media is just doing this to earn some mony. dont belive.

  • Daniel Tang

    We should celebrate Vanessa’s sexy, exotic beauty in this photo shoot. Leave her and Zac’s relationship issues to them and stop arguing what their status is. After all it is their relationship and we have no say in it. They’ll do just fine without fans investing their time and opinions.

  • Chanon

    Zac’s probably gawking at these pictures right now. LOLLLL <3

  • Ashley

    you guys call these children amazing?
    in your sense justin bieber is amazing, vanessa hudgens is amazing,
    zac efron is amazing-all these kids are turning out to be wannabes.
    justin bieber can’t dance. zac efron wants to look like james dean and vanessa hudgens looks like a cold sore drowning in chapstick.
    oh my gosh.
    ever see James Dean act?
    these kids aren’t lookers, they’re all just craving attention from the media.
    ever watch ‘little house on the prairie’?
    i do. i’m obsessed. check out what the amazing Melissa Gilbert said
    about your guys’ precious little Miley Cyrus. <3

  • hoitytoitytoity

    And Jared, how come you forgot the Sir Michael Caine hitting up on her in Journey 2 filming? That was more entartaining than the Efron part.

  • hoitytoitytoity

    @Ashley: LOL, what roles did the great James Dean have done?
    But sadly, Mr. Dean is not with us anymore.
    So Ashley, stop bringing up dead actors ok? Let him rest in peace.

  • hoitytoitytoity

    @hoitytoitytoity: Wait, I forgot that it should be Michael Caine and Quentin Tarantino in the title. Would have been more fab. Not Efron.

  • Fauve

    It’s kind of sad… I was so happy that Vanessa was finally having a day all about her and not about drama, and I come back from the doctors and people are bashing her? Making fun of a very beautiful and sexy shoot where she is NOT nekkie, but just looking sexy. Supermodels get nekkie even more nekkie than that in Europe nudity on magazines is acceptable even in Vogue, but Vanessa looks beautiful watch the details video she looks poised, and confident, and comfortable in her own skin. So what she is exotic looking???? I think our world is changing we need more exotic women. And now you want to say she dumped Zac when the other day he was in the wrong for supposedly canoodling with Teresa.

    Now I will admit I am more a “Vanessa” fan I’ve always been very honest about that because we have a few things in common mostly being judged for a mistake we made. Vanessa has been a beyond good girlfriend to Zac. She was loyal, she came to his premieres, and she did not go clubbing every day she went on her birthday which she was paid to do by the way, and she does not drink – do drugs – and her family and his family are very close. In five years she has been a better girlfriend to him then these other Hollywood weirdos who boink men like it’s candy. Even Teresa is a loosey goosey big time she has her name on bathroom walls. Vanessa has always been a woman of class. She even is classy when asked about him in this article she never said oh I dumped his sorry bum or he dumped me so he could go boink other chicks. The interviewer said she looked like she had been hit by a truck. Do we not remember that during that time frame she looked beyond depressed, but when he came back and he came over she was skipping around? Maybe he broke up with her for his career we all know Gina is a leech and leeches off him so she can get paid more.

    It does not matter who dumped who how about we all like them for themselves not who they date for whatever reason we choose. Zac does a lot for charity he was a good boyfriend yes. ONLY problem I have with Zac and it’s because I am Italian and we grew up with our men defending us is that he needs to show more ballz himself and stand up for her he did a good job in 2007 when some idiot released her private photos when him and her were dating who knows what that was. But now he needs to speak up for her like she has him like me or not bash me or not a man is a man to me and you stick up for your lady.

    He posed with a nekkie girl on him he shows his chest why is it wrong to wear what she did here? I like it. I would wear it. Heck I might go buy the same outfit and wear it for my boyfriend on Valentines Day.

    Vanessa is a GOOD woman and she took a break and maybe she did not do as many movies as him but she is making good choices. She WORKED HARD to get those roles she had to audition for them he gets his handed to him big difference. Women hated her for dating him people said her career would fail without him by her side. People said that she would not get into any parties or anything without him. All this after the stupid scandal before that it was Vanessa this Vanessa that and now it is back to being about Vanessa in a positive light let Vanessa have her moment to shine. Zac had his and he even was excited to see Beastly and Sucker Punch he was jealous of her in Sucker Punch. Every time it is Vanessas time to be about her scandals about Zac comes out how convenient.

    Fact —- Zac and Vanessa are each others first loves and maybe still loves they BOTH traveled far to see each other.
    Fact — Both their families are close so why hate? Even Stella said she saw him as a brother.
    Fact —- Eden Club after this article, he was at her house, they went to Golden Globes parties, and he went to NC to see her.

    Double standards here and a lot of flip flopping one day you hate Zac, and one day you hate Vanessa.

    I like Vanessa first — FACT I love Zac and Vanessa as a couple before the craziness happened — FACT I hope he comes to the premieres if he truly is in love with her, and did not cheat, and is innocent because until there are pictures he is innocent.

    Right now I want Vanessa to have her moment in the sun be happy for her hard work he did not get her any of those roles she got it herself and he did not get her those magazines or the Candies ads… last I checked her name was Vanessa Hudgens not Zac.

    Respect that they loved one another and that I am sure they are not bashing each other like people bash them. I am meaner then most people it’s the Italian blood if he cheated on her NO I would not be his fan.

    I do not believe he did at this moment I like them both end of story let them worry about their relationship. They are here to entertain us they don’t owe us anything more. As long as they are happy and not hurting each other I support them both I might like Vanessa more because of our commonality but I still support Zac.

  • Ashlee


    Yes, I’ve seen everything James Dean was in. He played the same character in six movies. Himself. He had no range. He played James Dean. Best not to grab names out of a hat.

  • yets

    im supporting Vanessa hudgens all the way…More to go V.

  • go sox

    @Daniel Tang: Thanks, Daniel. I totally agree. This is Vanessa’s time to “break out”, and I am loving this photoshoot as well as the InStyle one. That one was amazing too. Too bad all the pics arent’ posted here….seriously, ONE photo?? And it’s not nearly the best one. And the InStyle shoot is seriously gorgeous. She looks SOO chic and sophisticated.

    I agree we just have to stop speculating on what their status is right now. We all have different opinions as to what went down, but I’d say the bottom line is, I think we just want them to be happy. We thought they were, but obviously things have come along that were bigger than they could deal with right now. That’s why why “are figuring things out”….that’s what couples do when they hit points in their relationship when the answers are not so clear. I hope they can find their way. If not, then I’m sure they both learned so much from this time together, and will cherish their memories.

  • Jokergurl

    That would be awesome to train with Navy Seals for a while, because they obviously don’t let women become navy seals, they know some cool shit, especially with knife fighting and grappling, that’s always fun.

  • Cheryl

    Beautiful and talented. You go girl.

  • BOJI

    Sizzling, Sexy, Sultry Hot! The photoshoot Video says it all. I’m not in total approval of the photographer’s choice of pics here. I bet there are much better ones from what I’ve seen of the video.
    Detail Magazine will always try to spice up an interview. They did the same with Zac and added in the F word wherever they could. I suggest those of you who have read the article, take it with a pinch of salt.

  • go sox

    @BOJI: Yeah, I’m disappointed they only posted ONE pic on the adult site, but more on the kids site. AND the video is there too. Weird.

  • hoitytoitytoity

    @go sox: OK, why would Jared post those in the kiddie site?

  • jen

    Just because fans WANT them to be a couple doesn’t make it real, at this point no one knows for sure either way.
    But it does seem like their just friends at the moment and we don’t know if they’re trying to work out if they want to be together again or if it’s just friends catching up……it’s a case of wait and see what happens the rest is all pure SPECULATION.

  • samiam


  • Deb

    How can he be cheating if there is no one to be cheating on? They split up. Once that happened, he can date other people.

  • bella

    she’s smoking HOT she’s 22 years old no longer with DISNEY she’s a grow ass woman I don’t understand the mainstreams complaints stars going on to do racy things. How many of us haven’t? People need to stop forgetting that they were hormone driven teenagers at one point in their lives. BTW Vanessa Hudgens & Zac efron curse who cares as if they r the only ones who does

  • go sox

    @hoitytoitytoity: No idea!

  • Lyla

    Can you please define the word, “wath” for me?

  • lily

    She looks Smoking Hot!!! For the people saying she’s a whore and these are too racy…shut up, who cares. She is 22, not 12. And she is an actress, lots of actress’ do this. She is still wearing clothes

  • rhonda

    Awful answers. She sounds like she is trying to talk dirty and act slutty. That is not maturing and growing up, that is acting childish and stupid. Very disappointed in her comments.

  • lslsharon

    soooo hot

  • kyle

    Whoa, that is one hot of a picture!!! Meantime, i am not even going to speculate on the true status of their relationship. There are so many conflicting stories that it is better just to wait for some concrete statements from either of them that says the real score. Hopefully, we can get this during press interviews while promoting their upcoming films.

  • No, just no

    Wow. Her fans are really batsh*t.

  • Sean

    I’d lick every inch of that body and eat her feces.

  • beatriz

    she’s so sexy.
    i love her but WTF.
    they really broke up this so stupid.

  • Jeff

    Why is she trying to be al badass with the swearing? I like her, really I do but Tarantino will be dead to me the day he puts her in one of his movies.

  • Jasmine

    Wtf this interview is retarded, especially that part about Michael Caine. Crazy b*tch, indeed.
