Vanessa Hudgens Covers 'Shape' April 2011

Vanessa Hudgens Covers 'Shape' April 2011

Vanessa Hudgens flaunts her toned tummy in Shape‘s April issue.

Here’s what the 22-year-old Beastly star had to share with the mag:

On her fast food addiction back in 2007: “I was so unhealthy. I used to go to Cold Stone Creamery, get a tub of Butterfinger ice cream and eat it all before bedtime. And my fingers were permanently stained orange from Cheetos. When I came back [to High School Musical], I almost couldn’t get my costume on. When I finally got it zipped up, my boobs were up to my chin!”

On getting in shape for Sucker Punch: “I knew it was going to be hard but I didn’t know how hard. In the beginning I could dead lift 135 lbs. By the end, I lifted 180 lbs. I was a monster … Exercise is amazing from the inside out. I feel so alive and have more energy.”

On former flame Zac Efron: “Long-distance relationships are hard no matter what. When you don’t have face-to-face time, it’s just different. Having an iPhone helped, but it wasn’t the same. We grew up together. It was nice to have someone to share all those experiences with. It was a good thing. The relationship kept me grounded and because I was with someone who knew me so well, I didn’t need to try to be someone that I’m not.”

    I use to do the same mistake when I was younger and a teenager, until I had major eating disorder.
    I just realise my mistake at 30, I’m loosing some weight but I don’t give a damn about having a six pack, and a fake body created by some computers.

  • Chloe Bell

    It’s still kind of surreal that Vanessa and Zac parted ways, but it sounds like there’s still hope. Anyway, she said some level-headed things. I hope all is best.

  • lexy hates bilson

    She looks great! She’s such a sweetie!

  • Sheda

    What does she mean long distance???? They were only apart pretty much when he was filming the lucky one and she was filming journey 2 mysterious island. And they let those short amount of months tear them apart??? Wow

  • lauren

    i think they saw each other every couple weeks or something,

  • bri

    uh seriously, that is not her stomach.

  • Warren

    Hot and sexy woman, but she always was beautiful.

    wau beautiful

  • Joanna

    she looks great , i love the person she is evolving too- beautiful and respectful. having said that what do you expect her to say that she was willing to do the long distance and phone chats because they had done it before but zac couldnt keep his pants up and was unfaithful disrespectful douchy boyfriend there for the relationship ended.
    good riddance have you seen his latest marketing ploy -staged photo ops with his ninjas- im embarrassed for him.

  • r

    She’s so beautiful it’s not even funny

  • Maria

    @Sheda –> dont worry about it, she is a smart girl and she knows that magazines and people are going to ask her about the ”break-up” all the time and she cant only say all the time: ”yeh, we are still friends” To let the media leave her alone, she had to give some kind of reason that most people would expect.
    Long distance? I mean come on, if its true that they officially split up (which i dont think its the case) then she would eventually date another actor and then it will be the same problem, he will be filming there, she will be filming here etc. thats hollywood relationship and its hard to find someone out of hollywood who can understand the pressure of this job.
    So no they didnt officially split, they took a long break, so people can focuse on their work seperatly, i miss them together, i love them both, but i think, how hard it may seem, its good for both of them to be seperate for a while to learn who they are, experience different things, i mean look how vanessa and zac changed (on a good way) since the two gave space for each other……and the media is threating vanessa really different, on a positive way. They love each other, and the news came two weeks after the hawaii thanksgiving it wouldnt make sense at all, they made a very hard but also adult decision, they will come back, zac and vanessa will probably play the field but no one can deny their affectione for each other ;)

  • Exit to the left

    Please go away. Will you go away now?

  • Kerri

    I knew you meant it when you said goodbye. I promised myself i wouldn’t cry. The distance between us was far too wide. I knew our time was running out. The dream of us i wish would never end. The life we had ended too soon and all that was left is the faded memorys.

  • maeli

    baby v looks good

  • Kar

    Actually there are some of us who aren’t total morons… OF COURSE that’s not her stomach… DUH. What a lie, i dont get it.

  • naomi

    @Chloe Bell: to me sounded like there is NO hope :( idk her answergives me the impression that she doesnt love him like she used to. BUT maybe she just said that becuse she’s actually really private about her relationship.

  • knock

    I hate when celebs try to pretend they are/were fat. She was a twig in HSM, and still is.

    I wonder when this interview was done. Her hair still looks long here. It must have been done awhile back before she cut her hair. I agree with some of you, I think she had to say something so that the media won’t have to asked her about Zac anymore.

    She did say that that their relationship kept her grounded and that she was with someone who really knew her well and that she didn’t have to try to be someone that she’s not.

    I think that they will in time get back together. They are so much in love when you look those pictures of them together back when. That love will never be forgotten. They are still young and they will probably date other people, but they might still end up together. There have been lots of hollywood couple who ended back with each otherafter a split and after dating other people and ended up getting married.

    It might happen to Zac and Vanessa. Date other people and end up with each other at the end and get married!!

  • Honestly

    I don’t think she was saying she was fat as much as she’s saying she had bad eating habits.

  • Lily

    @knock hmm don’t think so. I think what she said is right, you can see the differences in her body between HSM 1 and HSM 2. So yeah, celebs are human, they feel fat too and it’s not wrong.

    anywhow, looking good vanessa! Well she always exercising in gym, no wonder :D

  • Kerri

    @Dm: do you really mean that .Do you think they could get back together?

  • wiseinlove

    She’s looking really good. Up and onwards. Love her and the person she’s becomin!!!

  • DM


    I didn’t ge that from what I read. Maybe she just doesn’t want to say more. And your right she does keep her relationship private, so maybe she just want to give an answer so they won’t have to asked about her and Zac.

    But my personal opinion, I think that they’ve been seeing each other privately. I’ve seen a lot on twitter where they are sightings of both of them. Not sure how true those sightings were, but I still believe that they love each other and ending a 5 yr romance is not easy to forget. There will always be feelings for one another.

    They are just taking their time personally and figuring out what’s next for the two of them. I sitll have faith in Zanessa.

  • samuel

    pathetic woman, anytime she has a new movie out she leaks nudie pics

  • lauren

    there are scans of her magazine article
    how they wored the questions about zac and their break-up starting with before her 22nd birthday.

  • Kerri

    @dm: you are a true fan just like me. At times it maybe hard but we just have to hang in there and never give up on them. Keep praying people.

  • biki

    @Maria: u are right if they officially broke up now it would be confirmed by them self’s or their reps.they just took a break cuz they are so much busy,they are focusing more on their career,they are just on break,but they still love and care for each other 5 year old relationship can’t just like that get i’ll just wait but i am 100% sure that we’ll see them when they finish whit all this busy stuffs.

  • kami

    ♥ vanessa said in the most gracious way she could that they are over. and she even said nice things about the relationship. she is one classy lady. ♥

  • Sean

    Long distance? Didn’t they both live in LA??

  • Kerri

    @Biki: do you know when the interview was taken? because last time vanessa said that zac and her are figuring things out. I am very confussed. I wish there was some way that us fans could know. Anyone who sees zac or vanessa ask them if they are dating. I wish we could get the number of their reps and ask them until they have no choice but to answer us.

  • DM


    Yes, I am a fan of both and not one or the other. I hope that they will find each other again in the future. Maybe after their schedule calms down.

    I still have faith in the two of them. I don’t think that they will just let go of a 5 yr relationship. When I see those pictures of them in the past, I feel sad. I go to you tube just to listen to their interviews on what they say about each other. They compliment each other and the way they look at each other you can tell they are in love.(you noticed I use the present and not the past tense)..will not say were in love, cause I know they are still in love and just working things out especially about their working schedules.

    Keeping the faith for Zac and Vanessa. Will always be Zanessa 4ever where ever life will bring them.

  • biki

    @DM: i saw sightings too,who knows might they are seeing in private,and yah you are right 5 year old relationship can just like that get over,they still love each other,they just took a break,cuz they are busy now,but i thing we’ll see them when they finish.and plus all this rumors whit zac hooking up whit other girls or nessa does the same thing i don’t thing it is true,cuz i did not see pics or videos of that cuz paps. are all the time whit tham where ever they go,and for those drinkik and doing drugs,they are grounded they don’t do stuffs like that they are leaving normal life,if they were doing now stuffs like that been to drunk like that whit zac on that pic when he was at private party whit that girl,they were not kissing or doing stuffs she was just some fan or friend,and if he was too much drunk on that pic or doing drugs he wouldn’t even stay on his legs,he would fall down,he was just looking tipsy and having good time he just drinked 1 or 2 drinks,and V when she was at britany’s party she just has 1 or 2 drinks,they don’t do drugs or getting o much drunk it is not good for them or people around them,u cant control u re self when u have too much alcohol in u re stomach,u could vomit,doing bad stuffs,u could die and fall down.and they don’t play field cuz when u do all the stuffs like this u would lose u re fame,and than u would regret it,so all of u just wait,and we’ll see,but for all that stupid rumors are no true,i am 100%sure will see them when they finish whit their work.

  • biki

  • ilia

    Some of you are insane. It is none of your business if they are dating or not.

  • Mellie

    so this is before she took the extensions out?

  • Kaz simply Amaazing !!!!!!!!

    Ohmg she’s really vanessa hot!

  • Kaz simply Amaazing !!!!!!!!

    No nude?

  • maria

    I think that Vanessa looks amazing in this Shape spread……all the pics are just so good. And for those who think it’s photoshopped…..I doubt it. You can suck in your stomach and get that tight look. And of course you’d suck it in if you’re in a bikini on a cover shoot. She’s a very natural body, very healthy, and not hard as a rock…..very feminine, and very sexy. I love how natural she is, and she’s comfortable in her skin.

    As far as what she says about her relationship ending in the interview, I believe she is just being gracious and classy not divulging anything. It’s the standard excuse all actors give when a relationship ends. She is private and will never talk about anything so intensely private. But this interview says it was done in NC, when they were still “good friends”, and good enough where he came to see her after spending weeks with her in LA. Yes, things were still good between them then. But things “happened” after NC, which I believe ended their “friendship” as well, because they haven’t been seen since doing anything. He is joined at the hip with a group, that is bad news, and she has been spending time with her family and different friends. They have dealt very well with “distance” before; at the end of this month, they’d both be in LA indefinitely, with no new projects imminently starting. The “distance” thing is just what they all say. If that was true, then NO celeb would ever have a relationship OR get married, cause they are ALL away for periods of time. So, I’m not buying it, but I respect her class and graciousness, as always. So proud of you, Vanessa. You are an amazing woman, and truly a woman to love. There is an amazing guy out there who will love you the way you hope to be loved, who will do anything for you, and never feel his job is more important than you. Believe in yourself and you will have your dreams…..

  • Lady

    i belive the Shape Magazine.was done in dec are jan.but zac was in nc in jan with vanessa.i think she say it to just shut them up.i bekive they are see each other to.hi biki.

  • Kerri
