Vanessa Hudgens: Zac Efron Helped Me Handle Fame

Vanessa Hudgens: Zac Efron Helped Me Handle Fame

Vanessa Hudgens is all smiles at the premiere of Girl Walks Into a Bar on Monday (March 7) at ArcLight Cinemas in Los Angeles.

The 22-year-old Beastly actress recently talked about how her parents and friends have helped her deal with fame.

“I had my family to keep me grounded. I’m so close to my mom [an office worker] and dad [a firefighter]. Their world doesn’t revolve around Hollywood,” she told USA Today.

“I also had (my High School Musical co-stars) to grow with, like Ashley [Tisdale] and Zac [Efron]. We all went on this journey together and had each other to fall back on. You’ve got to have your friends to keep your head on straight,” she added.

    Vanessa took her clothes off in the privacy of her own home and someone was very cruel and used them.

    Ashley Greene, Cameron Diaz, Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton took their clothes off for professional cameras. Oh but they are white so it’s okay I guess if they strip.

    I wonder if we went unto your phone and delved into tour life Missy what we would find-people who point out things like this are usually hiding something themselves.

    I think he only put Zac because it’s on just jared and not just jared jr, half of the people would be thinking wtf, who’s ashley you know? Cos Ash isn’t as famous as Zac.

    I’m just well aware you would not have gone into an Ashley Greene post and said any such thing – of that Im very sure so it must be something else.

    She went to a premiere. What does the title have to do with it? Can we not bring Zac into this JJ. It’s getting old.

    Zac is still in the picture
    Zac is still in her life.
    Zac is only in the headline bc he helped her handle the fame in a different and more personal way than Ashley did, which makes it more the story.
    They will be getting together now and then many more times for years to come I think.
    She looks great like she always does.

    kyle Says:

    That is sweet of Vanessa to acknowledge the people that had helped her deal with fame, including Zac. This just goes to show that she was treated right by Zac and remains to have high regards of him. She wouldn’t have this disposition if Zac is really that a sswhole some of you would like the rest of us to believe!!!
