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.

    @gracemarie: What is it with you and ALWAYS bring up Vanessa’s race? Her race isn’t everything. I understand what your saying but this REALLY has nothing to do with her race.

    She looks so pretty, and love how loyal she is to her friends, always. She is no “kiss and tell” girl, and keeps her life private. Most girls would’ve talked trash about an ex, but she never will. She is grateful for the time she had with Zac, as they had each other to stay sheltered from the evils of Hollywood. She is appreciative, and I think it’s classy for her to say that. Why JJ had to bring that up in this headline about a premiere, is a bit strange, but whatever.

    Vanessa always said it was all about the work and the “fame thing” was just an inevitable byproduct of the work, something you had to put up with but didn’t really glorify. She and Zac were on the same page with these thoughts and it was very refreshing, very un-Hollywood. I miss his influence and the fact that they did keep each other grounded and that they were “real”. Her interviews lately show someone who is less thoughtful and it appears that she is trying too hard to change her image, but not necessarily in a good way. She wants to be perceived as growing up but in fact she comes across as a little flighty and more shallow. I wonder how many times she will say “badass” in the comig weeks leading up to Sucker Punch. It’s getting old. I think Brittany’s influence has not kept her as grounded as she was before. The fact that Brittany has been on Twitter for a long time and now Vanessa is moving in that direction speaks volumes. Famous peopel on Twitter are trying to increase their fame and popularity. They should let the quality of their work do this instead and stay away from glorifying the whole fame thing. I personally miss the old Vanessa. To me, she was more “grown up” before when she was with Zac. i wish her the best. I hope she doesn’t self destruct.
