Vanessa Hudgens: I'm Very Picky About Roles!

Vanessa Hudgens: I'm Very Picky About Roles!

Vanessa Hudgens is summer chic while feeding a parking meter on Friday (August 2) in Los Angeles, Calif.

Earlier in the day, the 24-year-old actress was spotted hiding her face while heading to a yoga session in Studio City.

“I only want to do something that I think will be a lasting role. I want to leave a trademark of sorts. I filter through a lot of — not junk, but … It’s funny because before I had really expanded my horizons and allowed people to see me in different characters, everything I got was in the same world, this high school team fun vibe,” Vanessa recently told USA Today about her movie roles.

She added, “Now I’m getting these roles that are very heavy, dramatic, prostitutes and drug addicts. If it’s something I haven’t done, I gravitate toward it. I’m very picky.”

FYI: Vanessa is wearing a Chan Luu necklace.

    Did she break up with her boyfriend?

    Hudgens appears to be pushing the boundaries again with her next role in Robert Rodriguez’s grindhouse sequel Machete Kills, a style of film-making that depends on shock value.

    “Nah, that one, for me, was tame,” she insists. “I play Cereza who’s the virgin bride and things don’t end up very well for her. But I’ve always been drawn to the dark side – I guess you could call it that – to things that people turn a blind eye to.”

  • Jen J.

    Bish must think she’s Nicole Kidman. She is no position to be picky given that she’s sort of a one-trick-pony and that’s saying a lot since there’s not much talent to hang on to and her acting career seems to be drying up. You know that saying though, denial isn’t only a river in Egypt.

    YEAH, U WISH….

  • Emma

    LOL this coming from the girl that was in Spring Breakers

  • Asdfg

    I can’t stand actors/actresses who only act in “BIG” movies. If you love the job than why only act in “BIG” movies? I think most of today’s actors/actresses only want BIG money. They don’t work because they love their jobs they work because they love the money. Meh.

  • MIKE

    lol so she picked spring breakers? does she even get offered roles?

  • Ford

    Idiot. The only lasting impression she’ll have is for wearing big floppy hats, and boffing Zec Efron once upon a time.

    @Emma:
    There´s a reason, Spring Breakers is one of the best indies ever! the movie has amazing reviews and was praised in almost every festival around the world.

  • CollMV

    @Asdfg:
    Then you should love Vanessa, because she is doing mostly indies, and a couple of big movies “I only want to do something that I think will be a lasting role. I want to leave a trademark of sorts” Vanessa Hudgens

  • CollMV

    @MIKE:
    Somehow i believe you are one of those Disney fans who still can’t understand Spring Breakers and how majestic Harmony´s masterpiece is. –

  • ATLove

    I´am really happy she didn’t accept the Scary Movie V role!

  • Asdfg

    @CollMV – Are her movies worth watching? I’ve only seen her in Suckerpunch and I don’t remember her character.

  • luna

    @Jen J.:
    As far as we know there were a couple of offers the last couple of years, she was always picky… since HSM. She never accepted any of those Disney movies/series after HSM or all those TV cameos.

    queen V! she is gorgeous. bless her.

  • CollMV

    @Asdfg:
    Bandslam is really good, The Frozen Ground is a really good thriller, Vanessa´s connection with Nic is really good, and i loved Spring Breakers, such a fun movie with grat music, James and Vanessa were phenomenal!
    I personally hate the HSM saga, and Journey 2 is a cute movie.

  • tina

    What she said was she was offered a lot of the same role with a teen HSM vibe. She chose not to do those because it would have pigeonholed her. She chose instead to do darker movies which allowed her to be seen differently. She has accomplished this and received great reviews.

  • VEE

    @CollMV:
    i love Bandslam

  • ella

    She’s mediocre at best but thinks and talks too highly of herself. With the nature of events she ‘s attending regularly she doesn’t give off the vibe of an actress being able to be too picky

  • Haters Suck!

    @ella
    So she should think poorly of herself? Ill never understand people criticize people who are confident in themselves. If you don’t think you’re good at what you do and have confidence in yourself then might as well stay home.

  • jaimy

    @Haters Suck!: Being confident is good but why you have to go on raving it in public is just beyond me ; especially when you’re not very successful

  • Nightwish

    Here we go again. Hudgens wants us to think that she turns alot of stuff down. Truth is she acts in anything, thats why her roles suck. What a liar.

  • http://Justjared.buzznet.comb BOHJI

    @Nightwish: Shut Up nincompoop!

  • Nightwish

    Hey Hudgens, give us a list of roles that you turned down. I bet all went straight to video, except adventures of sharkboy and lavagirl. Yeah you turned down lavagirl, wow, you are so big time lol

  • Nightwish

    @BOHJI: Why isnt she casted in the good smaller project stuff? True grit? The descendants? Admit it bowj, nobody is interested in your girl but she says stupid lies to cover. Pffft.

  • Ajdhd

    Vanessa is the only actress in hollywood who wants to play prostitutes and tramps? Those are the roles that have least competition!!!

  • Mar

    Van’s PR team made a rumor that marvel was considering her for spiderwoman and the marvel fans got pissed. Vicious comments against the idea, so forget about that. If marvel wanted hudgens, she would have been in one of their many films playing one of the many characters, so i guess there is no interest in her.

  • http://Justjared.buzznet.comb BOHJI

    @Nightwish: Yah,yah, nobody’s interested. Then, pray what are you doing here on her threads and seeking out any itsy bitsy news of her on other sites? You are a Shmuck, you know that?!

  • tina

    People are suddenly coming out nowhere with names that makes no sense. Sound familar? Happens when ever nutcase wants to make a point.

  • http://sassypants1990@twitter.com Aryanna

    @.: not they are not they broke up

  • maria

    True Grit? The Descendants? Both WHITE girl roles. Are you dense? If the role calls for a white girl, with a white family, then they will cast a white girl. Not someone who looks like Vanessa. Quit comparing her to those girls. She is never going to get those roles that they hand to them. If taking darker roles is the way she needs to get noticed, then so be it. I have more respect for her, taking the less glamorous roles, just to prove herself. She has had to earn her way out of her Disney roots, and no one gave her a chance. Especially lunkheads like you.

  • http://none K

    Well that’s unfortunate considering she’s a terrible actress.

  • Nightwish

    @K: Precisely. The idiots here find every excuse in the book to justify her lousy leftover roles, just like their hero. Stoopid, i tell you.@maria: Hailee steinfeld has a bit of an ethnic look, so dont give me that crap. Many other films to boot where hudgens name didnt even remotely come up. She is so tv, if anything.

  • maria

    @K: Fortunately, others aren’t close-minded, and agree she is growing as an actress.

  • Camden

    Uh huh…yep…sure. I’m sure Suckery Punch and Spring Breakers have left indelible impressions on film history.

    She should thank her lucky stars she’s still working…forget being picky.

  • twinkle

    @Lurker: It’s a Givenchy Nightingale. You can get it at Barneys or Neiman Marcus.

  • twinkle

    I find her so annoying. She tries soooo hard and it’s just so obvious.

  • Jr

    @nightwish
    I don’t think I’ve seen a more heartless hateful person in my life.

  • Ollie

    Picky yeah right couldn’t get any,..she should sign up for casting couch for roles..

  • maria

    Steinfeld does NOT look “ethnic”. In any way. Nice try. Any black gals in that group? Nope. Any Asian gals? Nope. You can deny it all you want, but racism and the fact that MOST roles are written for white girls, is the way in Hollywood.

  • maria

    Vanessa saying she is picky, also means we probably have no idea what kind of blah roles and scripts were given to her. I am glad she did not go the route of rom-coms, or strictly teen movies. She showed guts taking on Spring Breakers, Frozen Ground, and Gimme Shelter. Whine all you want, but she DOES choose roles that are different and help her grow. After Disney, this is what she had to do. None of those chosen white actresses has had to deal with coming out of Disney either. They ALL got great early roles as teens, and now hog the market. Honestly, I’m already tired of them. There are other talented actors in the world.

  • MoreThanWords

    She looks good.
