Vanessa Hudgens: I Want Career Longevity Like Meryl Streep

Vanessa Hudgens: I Want Career Longevity Like Meryl Streep

Vanessa Hudgens gets a kiss on the cheek from an adoring fan as she steps out on Friday (July 19) in Ischia, Italy.

The 24-year-old actress is in town to promote her latest film The Frozen Ground.

“I want longevity,” Vanessa recently told Metro UK about her desired career. “I want to be able to do this when I’m 60, so a great example is Meryl Streep: she’s tackled different roles across a big spectrum and she’s still going strong. And she just seems like a grounded, extremely intelligent woman.”

FYI: Vanessa is wearing Matt Bernson “KM Gladiator” sandals.

    Don’t you have to be talented like Meryl Streep though? I could understand if this was Jennifer Lawrence, Rooney Mara, etc.. talking but Vanessa Hudgens? um ok.

    Nobody is ever going to take the chick from that Disney TV movie with dirty nude pictures seriously. She has no fanbase outside of that.

    @just saying:
    Whats your problem, she just said she wants a long career, right now she is only 24, and is still working, and the critics are loving her performance.

    There´s no need to hate or judge her. :) She is just a young actress working hard to reach her dreams.

    I dont understand why some people dont want to give vanessa a chance. She made some mistakes, we did it all, she has dreams we have them, too. Why people constantly try to ridicule her. Vanessa is a pretty young woman who likes to have fun, I wish her a lot of success.

    @sasha: that comment has nothing to do with being white. if vanessa was actually talented enough to have a career trajectory for the next 40+ years of her life then thats a different story, people can acknowledge mixed race and minority talent in this day and age but she simply doesnt have “it”. there actually needs to be more diversity with lead actresses as far as ethnicity is concerned but vanessa is nowhere near j-law or rooney mara or emma stone’s acting abilities, sorry its the truth.

    She loves the attention and parties more than her job I think

    robpatzzforever Says:

    as far as we are concerned she has the ability and everything, there’s a reason why she is still getting casted in movies and there´s a reason why she has rejected some roles. And lol at you, can you name another white girl/actress what about Emma Roberts lol
