Vanessa Hudgens Covers 'Glow' Magazine's Winter 2012 Issue

Vanessa Hudgens rocks a Simone leather jacket on the cover of Glow magazine’s Winter 2012 issue, on newsstands now.

Here’s what the 23-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her Spring Breakers sex scene with James Franco: “It was very nerve-racking for me. I told my agent that I never want to do it ever again.”

On gaining weight and chopping off her hair for Gimme Shelter: “With so many actresses who want the exact same role, you’ve got to stand out and be different and not let anybody tell you no.”

On following her heart: “At the end of the day, I’m going to do what I want to do, regardless of whether it may upset someone. But I think that if I’m doing right for myself, then that’s all I really need to care about.”

    She is really pretty, and i love her life philosophy, she is living her life but there’s never news about her doing drugs, going to clubs, cheating or anything, she is always spotted with her family and her boyfriend, and according to Stella instagram her whole family LOVES Austin.

    Who else here thinks that vanessa and austin will get married?

  • tina

    I once repelled off the side of a mountain in Germany because I signed up for it and because I did others committed to do so. Will I ever do it again? Not in this life, but I signed up for it and saw it through. That’s what adults do. When I signed I had no idea how I would feel afterwards. She could have come out of this saying things like “it made her a woman” or “it was the best time of my life” She did it, because she was commited to do so, didn’t like it and won’t do it again. Simple as that.

    @carmen:

    Do you have a link to this BTS? We’d love to feature it at Glow.ca

    Thanks!

    @mela: You are right these pictures from this spread are gorgeous. Thanks for posting.

  • italian mom

    JJJ has amazing photos. She dresses this brand like no other! Made for each other, I would say.
    And yes, it’s her life and she already understood a tough lesson ( I took 36 years to not get influenced and pushed to places that were not my decisions) and she loves what she does. Very happy for her achievements!

    Sexy girl

    Cant wait for the full interview

    Absolutely stunningly beautiful! Just love her pics. Her honesty, openness and wisdom shines through. One of the many reasons why I identify with this girl.

  • KissThis

    It looks like she has a MASK of pale makeup on! Bad cover.

  • Annabelle

    Mission accomplished today! A coordinated VH pumper attack grabs pages 1 and 2. Very amusing how you all coordinated it today. My observation is that Vanessa is looking very mature these days.

  • LMAO

    So it seems that emma and vanessa had some kind of problem with SB. Good thing I’m not watching it then, there is always a real reason why Emma dropped out. and plus i don’t want to see vanessa in a movie where she’ll obviously look like she doesn’t wanna be in it.

  • Annabelle

    @LMAO: She needs the work. She’ll take anything. She should have objected to doing scene but went along with it. Harmony wrote the screenplay for that child porn “kids” movie, so this movie will likely be pushing it too.

  • cc

    I think she didn’t like the way the cover came out at all because it looks unflattering

  • maria

    @mela: thanks for the pics, mela! I actually like those better than the one they chose for the cover! Stunning!!

    @LMAO: So glad Emma was never in it. She would never have fit in with the others. JMO.

    @Annabelle: She absolutely does NOT take anything. She is very selective, and chooses those projects that are going to stretch her limits in some way.

  • tina

    Great cover, busy girl.

  • http://www.justjared.com Intric8

    Greetings all! Know what bugs me about this cover? There is nothing glowing about vanessa in the shot, but look at the title of the magazine. They used too much makeup on her, the tones look horrible, and her expression should have been uppity and not pensive. I think somebody should communicate this to her agent or publicist. Make sure Vanessa gets at least 10 hours of sleep for 3 days prior to a shoot, send her for a facial rejuv 2 days prior to the shoot and insist on using less make up to let the natural skin glow push through the shot. Hey, i am no expert on the subject, you know, just employing a bit of common sense here and tapping the girlfriends habits with this advice. She is cute and only 23, so she can certainly get a better and more natural beauty shot. Cheers!

  • LMAO

    maria: based on reviews, it seems like no one fit the role. It looked like only Selena and James did their role right.

  • http://www.justjared.com Intric8

    Point is, you cant sell a magazine entitled “glow” when the subtleties of the cover picture are in both subliminally and starkly in contrast to it. Vanessa is not really the problem here, the editors of the magazine are responsible for compromising their principles. It’s actually not fair for Vanessa also. Her undereye area does not look fresh. Should have tried again the next day once they looked at the shots. Hey not hating here, just giving an honest assessment.

  • Connie

    @LMAO:
    According to the crew, Emma dropped the role because she didn’t wanted to gain weigth.
    “It was very nerve-racking for
    me. I told my agent that I never want to do it
    ever again.”
    That doesnt means she wasnt confortable doing it, it means she doesnt want to do it again, it would be so hard to find a role like this one with a director like Harmony, everyone wants to work with him (even RPattz, he loved Spring Breakers)), because he is AMAZING, she knew about the scene when she got the script, so she knew about everything, but there always some stupid people (they didnt even saw the movie yet) who think this movie is like child porn or something like that, all the critics around the world loving the movie it says everything, its a master piece! A really strong and brillant movie.

  • tina

    She looks great here. Love her hair and make up. She’s glowing. Maybe because she’s happy with her life.

  • http://www.justjared.com Intric8

    @Connie: Are they going with wide release? My prediction is a surprising 14 million opening week, 8 mill the second, 5 mill the third, and then it fades into oblivion with a tiny cult following

  • Connie

    @Intric8:
    Everyone can say you are “not an expert” lol, i think you need to see the outtakes, she looks stunning! And the BTS, she didnt even need photoshoop, this girl is stunning, and her eyes are amazing.
    <3.

    HATERS are FAULT-FINDERS…….everybody bear that in mind!

    nyway……beautiful as usual…with very little make-up….tadaaaaa…….every inch very gorgeous!!!

    Hello to the regulars here.Have a great day!

  • http://www.justjared.com Intric8

    @Connie: I’ll give you a very unbiased opinion, at first site her tones in that shot especially under the eyes are a bit disconcerting, and it is noticeable enough at a half second second glance. From the perspective of a magazine buyer or a potential Hudgens convert perusing magazines, the effect is net negative. Yes she is cute, no question, but wrong magazine title for this shot. For me the irony will settle in. If it were good housekeeping or modern woman or something like that then no prob. She does look good, no question about it though.

  • tina

    Glow is happy with their cover girl or they wouldn’t have used her. Silly remark from the uninformed won’t change that.

  • http://deleted BO

    LOL , cuttinh hair and gaining weight for Gimme sheleter ?“ so many actresses wanted to do the role “ I bet! with an unknown director who apparently has not done anything before and Brendon Fraser as the father playing like his first ever serious role in a film ,I`m just sure “lots of actresses wanted to do it “ .lol Gosh , she`s just praising herself since no one is doing it .

  • http://www.justjared.com Intric8

    Well, they can check against magazine sales and do an evaluation if this was successful or not. Just trying to give an unbiased, iow, non-hudgens acolyte view of the situation, in which case Hudge looks gorgeous in any picture, even when she has just rolled out of bed.

  • e

    She looks amazing on this cover (I don’t know why but I get a bit of a Jackie Kennedy vibe from it, in a good way) and all the other pictures I’ve seen from this shoot.
    On the few parts from the interview we see here I don’t get what the haters are implying so it’s obvious that it’s just more bias opinions of those who have set out to hate on her no matter what she says or does. I’ve always respected Vanessa for the way she always does what her heart and mind tells her to do, not what anyone else tells her to do what she said here is just more proof of that philosophy, and speaking of SB and that comment I don’t think it has anything to do with anything other than that specific sexscene, I mean I haven’t seen the movie yet (though I can’t wait to see it) but I do believe that it probably wasn’t so that it was a sexscene that she was so uncomfortable with to say that she didn’t want to do it again but by the actual scene, if that makes sense, well either way I know Vanessa will keep working and growing as an actor with each role she takes on and with the life philosophy she will also be very happy in her life as well and that’s all that really matters in the end.

  • http://deleted BO

    So this is she finally turns out to be .” at the end of the day i do whatever i want , even if it hurts someone , if what i am doing is right for me , it`s all what i care “ .LOL There goes your “caring , supportive ,warm “ flllyyyiiinngg out the window ! LOL Don`t tell us fans didn`t warn that she is this type .It`s all waht we`ve been sayin all along , now in her own words ! lol

  • LMAO

    Connie : Emma said “creative differences that couldn’t be resolved.” is the reason why she dropped out. If Vanessa wasn’t so desperate to get rid of her Disney image, she would have dropped out too.

    Here’s the thing you should know- Interviews are usually planned months ahead, so I doubt he actually seen spring breakers. And I really wouldn’t take anything he says seriously since he is stupid enough to take back someone who cheated on him.

  • Connie

    @Intric8:

    You are the always oh so present fan, on all her posts, and it looks like you know everything about this movie and about her, so you should know…
    Its going to be amazing. o Harmony, his first movie going nationwide and most probably worldwide. This is amazing, an indie going worldwide, and its not for the $. They are doing it because everyone wants to see the movie.

  • e

    @BO:

    Silly little BO, here again talking about things you don’t understand which only reflects badly on you. When she said that it’s obvious that she wasn’t talking about that role specifically but what an actor have to do for any role he or she takes on because there are competitions to all roles. But I do think that Vanessa knows a bit better about who else was up for any role she takes on than you do, it’s just not something they talk about out of respect for their colleagues.

  • tina

    The comments from the detractors become lamer as she continues to achieve her goals. Now they are just laughable.

  • http://deleted BO

    Last I checked RPatz has said he loves James Franco , not SB .He said he wanted to work with Korine in March when the SB hadn`t even finished filming .lol

  • vancrazed

    @tina: well she’s always been that way though. she’s never used somebody’s name to ‘make her famous’ or ‘keep her in the limelight’. that’s just who V is. She won’t ‘pay’ for a role, Its not about money for her, and she’s more concerned about doing what she loves and being true to herself. I agree with you 100%. Its why I love her too! :)

  • http://deleted BO

    Btw , did I mention Zac got a PCA nomination for the favorite dramatic actor and TLO the favourite dramatic movie ! So happy !

    she looks really stunning. White is definitely her color.

  • http://deleted BO

    My dear silly e , read the interview carefully .It specifically says what she said on Gimme shelter .lol

    I highly doubt there was such competition for the role .If there had been I am sure they wouldn`t choose her .They would choose someone who can act and capable of controlling facial expressions better .Go do your search .The director hasn`t done anything before , or anything worthy .And with Fraser in a serious role , I don`t think there was tough competition .lol

  • Fan Here

    @Connie:
    i know!! I read Rob latest interview, it looks like he is in contact with Harmony and he was at one of the secret / private screenings last month: He is one of the only young actor who actually has passed the teen heartthrob phase and he is a real actor a talented actor.

  • Fan Here

    @e:
    ignore BO, she is just desperate for attention, lol no one cares about her anymore.

  • http://deleted BO

    She`s true to herself and that`s why you bunch love her ! True , like , doing whatever she wants irrespective of whether others are upset .True as in , caring all about doing good to you ! LOL If that`s why you love her , you may as well love rapists .You might love rapists `cause he stayed true to himself and when he felt the need to stick his c.ock somewhere he stuck it in a gal`s p.ussy , hence he`s a rapist.But he still stayed true to himself .lol
