Vanessa Hudgens: Spirit Awards with Malin Akerman!

Vanessa Hudgens: Spirit Awards with Malin Akerman!

Just Jared has been part of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Force this Oscar weekend. We just came from the 2011 Film Independent Spirit Awards, spotting the best celebrity style on Saturday (February 26).

Malin Akerman and fellow bedazzled actress Vanessa Hudgens put on their 3-D glasses to experience the epic LG Cinema 3D HDTV lounge backstage at California’s Santa Monica Beach.

Vanessa, who wore a cute Free People dress, was seen swiping a Altoids mint tin and sticking it into her purse. She literally danced her way through the lounge and mingled with 90210‘s Trevor Donovan. Before hitting the ceremony, Vanessa stopped by the Elle lounge and chatted with creative director Joe Zee.

FYI: Vanessa is wearing a Turquoise Ring by Herndon Heald and an evil eye necklace by Kara Ackerman.

    Vanessa looks so much older than she is.
    Not very pretty IMO.
    Zac can do better.
    Glad they’re broken up.

    LOL @ swipe… I am sure if it is free I would take it too… Anything free is good, and I love her dress it hugs her figure well. It is good to see her having a good time, and having fun. Do you notice the Malin Ackerman and her connection? Watchmen + Sucker Punch = same director Zack Snyder! Can’t wait to see Beastly and Sucker Punch!

    @Michelle: And what do you look like? How very charming and mature of you. She looks very lovely, and beautiful unless you are of her caliber, or in many magazines judge not. And many men would disagree with you just as good looking as Zac or even better looking.

    vanessa is pretty as usual. love her dress. and when you take items that are “free” that isn’t swiping (which means stealing without permission). love the pic of vanessa with trevor donovan. :)

    We dont all have to agree


    ITAWU. There are lot of young filipina actresses backhome ” mestisa, (Eurasian)” or not are much, much prettier than her. and taller. She’s a bit too short , eventually she had to outgrow the cute, teenage role, Which I think she’s gonna had a hard time on it, besde, Asian had a very limited role in HW. I don’t think she gonna go far in HW.

    Fauve Says:

    @Marisol: You It might not feel that, but there was NO reason why he has to pick one genre of people, to say that they were commenting. I would feel the same if he said italians, or germans, or romanians were the only ones to care about Vanessa. To pinpoint one set of people was wrong, and I am sure Vanessa would feel the same. It does not matter what your nationality is, what color you are etc… it only matters who you are where it matters the most on the inside. Vanessa can pull off many looks, and I feel that this makes her beautiful, if he did not like the way she looked or her acting all he had to do was state he was not a fan of hers. Why waste time elebaroting? Obviously people do like her, or they would not even bother to comment. I am sorry but it is uncalled for to bring up what a person nationality is in a derogatory sense. My sister in law is also the same nationality as Vanessa, and she felt insulted reading his comment. She also is a fan of Vanessa and her style, and it did upset her. I understand it did not you that is your choice, but that was uncalled for what he said.

    ryanmurphy Says:

    @Marisol: Of course you wouldn’t think Vanessa’s pretty. Your local actresses look pasty with all the whitening products they put on their body just to look fair and white and all-American.
    And all Filipinos I know are besotted with those and make themselves ”white’ too. I tell them they should be happy they original skin color is not white. They can go out in the sun and not worry so much about looking like a lobster or worry about skin cancer.

    vhei Says:

    @lola: there are actually several solutions to your problem. someone must write (or better yet, someone has already written) a very good screenplay that will cast her. (anyways, i’ve heard a lot of very good writers considering her – known and even those amateurs) she’s actually critically acclaimed for bandslam, fyi, if you haven’t read it yet. ace torres wanted her in wishing well. she was rumored to play spiderwoman and in dead@17. if she won’t go far in hollywood, then why does she have three upcoming movies this year alone? suckerpunch is an action film. she plays blondie. do you think that’s a ‘cute teenage role’? journey 2 is an adventure movie. she plays kailani. do you still think that’s a ‘cute teenage role’? yes, she’s short. so what do you call other pinay actresses and even some white actresses? six footers? yes, she’s asian. so why do a lot of asians are in hollywood?

    Looking gorgeous, Vanessa!! LOVE the new hair length….can’t wait to see her style it all different ways!! There are also some VERY cute pics of her with Josh Hutcherson at their table. I think they all had a great time filming Journey in Hawaii AND North Carolina with Michael Caine and the Rock.

    hannah pie Says:

    @Lovely: it’s called them opting to have more objectivity. they’re not supporting someone for the sole fact that they’re the same ethnicity as them.
    that’s like voting for someone just because they are female and you are female. that’s dumb.
    get a clue.

  62. 62
    Lovely Says:

    @ryanmurphy: I think I agree, though you can’t blame Filipinos for wanting to be ‘white’. it would make the actresses more glamorous looking besides the brown skinned Filipina.

    @hannah pie: It wasn’t an objectivity claim. It was a rude gesture of piting Filipino actresses to Vanessa who looks more Filipino than the Euroasian and mestiza actresses Lola was saying. Judging from pictures of Filipino actresses, Filipino producers, they don’t really care much for brown-skinned ones do they?

    Jo Says:

    Plus, this link i just posted i highly doubt is true. Like they say, don’t believe the things you read online. I just want to know what all of you think of this. I think it sounds like they’re over-reacting about the whole situation. The zac and theresa thing was a lie, so this might be just as fictional.

  66. 66
    Haters Suck! Says:

    I wouldn’t read anything into that story. Hollywoodlife is one of the most unreliable gossip rags out there. In my experience a majority of what they write about any celebrity is complete bull$hit. Plus Josh was not even at the beastly premiere so I got no ideas where they got that info from.

  67. 67
    Allie Says:

    It’s whats going to happen. Either of them stand beside someone of the opposite sex and they’ll be linked. Besides, isn’t Josh like 18. If Zac and Vanessa don’t work it out, I’m sure she’ll date somone older. She may only be 22 but having been in a relationship for a long time, she should be more emotionally mature than other girls her age.

    Anyway, that dress makes her look much taller. Malin Akerman should never have all her hair back. It looks terrible. If you’ve got a large forehead, need to have some bangs.

    Susan Says:

    How do you guys think Beastly will do opening weekend?

    Here are some opening weekend numbers (per screen averages) for a few of Zac and Vanessa’s films:

    High School Musical 3 $11,600
    Hairspray $8,800
    17 Again $7,300
    Charlie St. Cloud $4,600
    Bandslam $1,000

  69. 69
    go sox Says:

    @Susan: Yeah, we get that your main goal in life is to smash Vanessa’s face into the ground. Actually, Bandslam was a far better movie critically than CSC or HSM, and Vanessa has great reviews for it. And she already received a ShoWest Star of Tomorrow award last year for her role in Beastly, as did Alex. I think Beastly will do fine, because of word-of-mouth, and better promo than Bandslam did. Please go find something else worthwhile to do with your life, than to purposely try to degrade others for no reason.

    @Jo: How stupid. Just because they are friends, and just finished months of filming together, does not mean they are dating. She described him as a younger brother, for heaven’s sake. The maturity of a 22 yr old woman is far beyond that of an 18 yr old BOY. That’s just the dumbest thing ever. They are friends. End of story.

    BARBARA Says:

    @ JO, that story is nothing but a lie,First off Vanessa was a director, and josh was there because his movie was nominated, I sure they didn’t know very many people there, and because they know each other, and they think of each other as brother and sister, so when you know someone ,you feel more comfortable with, Zac does the same thing, he always hangs out with the people he knows, then they makeup storys about them,i don’t care who it is. Hollwood life tells the bigest storys, and makes them up. @ KAREN, said as soon as Vanessa, gets back to LA, they are going to makeup storys, about her as they about Zac,Zac said do not believe anything you read unless he tells you. @ KAREN I MISS YOUR GREAT COMMENTS, I WISH YOU WERE BACK YOU HAVE JUST A GREAT VISION, OF LIFE IT SELF, AND ABOUT Z&V.

  76. 76
    fan Says:

    @ Susan. That is great for Zac, but he has been playing the same character and just change his name. Look all he has to do is take off his shirt and show abs then stare dreamly into the camera with his blue eyes that will make all his tween/teen girls and cougar moms fans melt in their seats. Of course, that will bring in female audiences to see him.

    In Bandslam, Vanessa had a supporting role with less screen times. The main stars of Bandslam was Galeen Conner and Aly M, (of Aly & AJ & Hellcats). Those two had all the screen times. However, the movie critics praised Vanessa’s performance as great for the little screen times that she had gotten. The whole movie was rated 85% by the Critic Choice and 80% Fresh by Rotten Tomatoe; therefore, Bandslam was considered as critically acclaimed movie. Also the cost for filming Bandslam was approximately $15,000,000.

    Beastly will be fine. It is not expected to be a blockbuster hit due to its 1900 theater release. Plus the cost of filming Beastly is approximately $17,000,000. However, it already awarded both Vanessa and Alex as ShoWest Star of Tomorrow by the filming industeries.

    I know you are a huge fan of Zac and he does have his own threads on JJJr/JJ. Now that Vanessa is on her own and being Zac’s candy arm, his fans should be able to leave her along and hopefully stop with the hurtful and threaten comments. Hopefully by now, Vanessa will have less and less threaten Zac’s fan mails making threats to her and her family. There are still some Vanessa’s fans that will continue to respect Zac as an actor. And hopefully Vanessa’s fans will stop going on to Zac’s threads and making hateful comments as well.

    Remember both Vanessa and Zac are both fine young actors, and we should all respect their work for what they both enjoy doing.

    Allie Says:

    While I love that Vanessa got great reviews for Bandslam and it was critically acclaimed, she needs the box office now. Beastly needs to do well. Over $8-9m and I’ll be happy. I just fear if it flops. She’s had promotion problems with her albums, Bandslam and now Beastly.

    On the other hand, Zac needs critical success. He should start taking supporting roles and have somone in his films with name recogntion.

  79. 79
    say what? Says:

    Not many people saw Me and Orson Welles. Critics did like it, as well as those who saw it. It was a risk for Zac considering the material as well as the great actors he worked with when he was a so young. Even as panned as CSC was the critics said they were lucky to have Zac and praised his acting-hoping for better movies for him.

    I hope these kids do well in the future. I think they both have more talent than a lot of their more mediocre peers. I want good acting and movies in the future and good actors for those performances

  80. 80
    BARBARA Says:

    ALLIE, BANDSLAM, was film by SUMMIT,all they cared about was that Twight series, and did not promote the movie very well, and alot of crtics really critize them for it. HOLLWOOD records also did not promote her either, the first alum V, she got a silver record from her sales which was pretty good, but she sold alot, on tour of HSM 1, they went all over the world, the second one Nurtragena paid her to go on tour, and Hollwood records is own by disney, who was spending million of dollors promoting it was not her vault.she asked to get out of her contract from HR, they agreed. I think Zac covince her to put all her energy in making movies, so she did.

    mykamicks Says:


    3rd rate accdg to you. How did you come up with such an evaluation. At the age of 17 she was included in Forbes young richest celebtrity. that’s because of her ( their) TV/ movie HSMs made a blockbuster in cable & big screen. That’s her stepping stone from third rate to become RIch & Famous. 2010 she was recognized by Showest as one the Stars of tomorrow which means this young lady has seen of her works as an actress and not as teeny weeny bopper cutie celebrity in the hollywood world. Recently, again she was included by Forbes as one of the Bright Star for 2011. Obviously, she belongs to the FIRST RATE YOUNG CALIBER ACTRESSES now.

    I dont know what kind of sentiments you are dealing with Vanessa Hudgens putting her down. JEalous much.

    Another thing, what is you if the majority of Filpinos if ever are trolling around in this thread? Why stressing Filipinos? Some kind of Racist character you have. This is not the proper site to attack such a nationality. The purpose of people around here whether it be Filipino/s or any nationalities is to show support Vanessa. Anyways, anyone here whatever kind of Nationlaity or Flag you are carrying. I believe you came from another ANIMAL KINGDOM born without a mother to teach you Racism. Thanks to FAUVE for expalining. Hope this will highlight the rusty brain of this person . Go back to your elementray days and study Social Studies for you to be aware of your own nationality and knows how to defend it later ones you’ll be atttack by another nationality.
