Vanessa Hudgens: I Want an Oscar & Kids in the Future!

Vanessa Hudgens: I Want an Oscar & Kids in the Future!

Vanessa Hudgens looks glamorous on the cover of Marie Claire‘s October 2013 issue, on newsstands September 17.

Here is what the 24-year-old Frozen Ground actress had to share with the mag:

On not caring what others think: “I am so comfortable with myself – honing in on what I love and what makes me powerful. Things I’ve been doing lately, I’m super-proud of. So I don’t really care if someone doesn’t like it, because I love it.”

On being spotted at Coachella indulging in a substance she insisted was white chocolate and not cocaine: “I couldn’t do anything but laugh. It’s amazing how people like to create something out of absolutely nothing. I am human like everyone else. I am aware that there are people who look up to me. When mistakes are made, they aren’t intentional, and I constantly push myself to be a better person.”

On what she wants in the future: “A vintage mustang, kids, and an Oscar.”

On her family’s struggle while she pursued acting: “Money was a big thing. My parents drove me up to L.A., which cost a lot because of gas, and took out loans so that we could move from location to location to be close to L.A. The family definitely struggled. They were very supportive of me. They gave up a lot so that I could get to where I am.”

    @Nightwish:
    do you always talk with yourself? lmao so sad you have to change your name every single time! hahaha what a looser
    BTW TFO opened in only 12 theatres and as someone said it already made its money back, she got really good CRITICS AND AUDIENCE reviews, awards and praise, so her job is done.

  • a

    lol at these delusional haters. Isn’t the whole point of being an actor to give a performance good enough for an Oscar someday? Maybe you should head on over to rotten tomatoes and check out the reviews she’s received for The Frozen Ground. Even the critics that didn’t like the movie said she was amazing. If you guys actually followed her career at the moment, it’s not that far fetched.

  • Pam

    @A: the fun y thing is that she isn’t selling herself as others do she is very picky and her films are actually getting good reviews or at least her performances, is t like other films that go to fests and ppl doesn’t even care… But yeah, her performances keep getti g better and how much her directors praise her is wonderful… Just move on and go with your jealousy to mop in a zefron post

  • tina

    @a I agree, everyone who has ACTUALLY MET HER, have nothing but good things to say. That’s one of the things that make the clowns that come here so comical. They sit behind their computers making inane comments with absolutely nothing to back them up. Always a good life.

  • Reid

    an oscar????? HAHAHAHHHAHAHAHAAHAHHAAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAAH

  • Roxie

    OMG! She wants an Oscar……good luck sweetie because that ain’t happening……NOT EVER! She is gorgeous but her talent is limited. Sorry honey your ship has sailed.

  • Dana

    I think this is a little sad.
    Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz both said they’d like to win oscars and now Vanessa Hudgens? Do they realize to the real oscar winners they are jokes?

  • maria

    Oh, please, with the Oscar slam. Is it not what EVERY actor works towards? Why they choose the roles they do? You people are idiots. Of COURSE she’d love to win an oscar. No need to trash talk over that. The interview is great, and oscar, mustang, and kids were not even mentioned. Typical JJ. I think she looks amazing, including the photos inside. Such vicious, petty, jealous bullies.

  • tina

    Love all these people with the ability to see into the future. If you have a job or profession and you don’t inspire to be the best why the HE LL are you doing it? Do you wake up ever day and say can’t I be less than I am today? Then the problem is you. The directors she works with love her, the critics are loving her new roles, and she is growing and expanding everyday. Tell me what movie you are appearing in so I can critique you. Until you walk a mile in her shoes who are you to judge her?

  • Acy

    Riiiight. Like that’s ever going to happen.

  • Matt

    Talentless famewh*re. She’s so freaking pretentious !

  • tina

    @Acy: We know when we get stupid names like this it’s the same person. Coward.

  • kelly martineau

    She won’t win a oscar with the kind of movies she makes. They don’t stay in the theathers. Don’t have austin kids they will look like hime gross and augly. Have some of Zac kids. Good make to having black hair.

  • kelly martineau

    Where was she for a week? visiting BIG LIPS in n.y. If she was at fashion week in n.y. SHe doesn’t know anything about fashion. Look at the way she dresses.

  • tina

    Try none if your business where she was for a week.

  • Mar

    @Mel: did you just seriously compared HSM with Titanic? And above that, Leo Dicaprio’s acting with hers?? I just can’t take it.

  • kasia

    @kelly martineau: Your posts are so painfully stupid. Not in a funny way, I mean literally painful. I get headaches trying to decipher them. Why are you always bashing someone’s looks? I doubt that you’re perfect looking yourself, and you wouldn’t want someone telling you who to have children with based on their appearance. That’s ridiculous & purely shallow.

  • Nightwish

    @..: You believe everything you read? That film cost 28 million to produce. Go check how much its made so far from a reliable source. It need to make twice the production cost to break even lol

  • static12

    what a skank. she is so fake and stuck up with limited acting range. dont get me wrong i date people of all races but shes another ethic chick that only cater to and dates white people. she will care what people think when she stops getting roles. all the good roles should and going to to talented young actresses like jennifer lawrence, the fanning sisters, chloe mortez. she intentially leaked nude photos to get supposed mature roles because her acting is limited along with dating white guys like zac efron.

  • Haters Suck!

    @static12
    It don’t get much more narrow minded then that. This ain’t the 60′s or 70′s anymore. Interracial dating is a widley accepted practice now. It’s amazing how you can sit behind a computer and say those things while people who actually know vanessa, spend time with her, worked with say she’s sweet, down to earth and talented. Go figure. You find me one person who’s ever worked with or spent time with vanessa that says anything close to what u say ill listen. Until then you’re just a spineless hater.

  • IMO

    Gorgeous cover. Vanessa is growing more beautiful as she gets older. I can see she appreciates where she came from and the sacrifices her parents made . I also love her attitude about choosing happiness. Because if she paid attention to haters she would be miserable and bitter. Which is what would make them happy so…I love she takes the high road.
    Me not so much, I think Haters are cowards, pathetic, lonely minions sitting behind their PC’s thinking they have some kind of power when in reality all they are worthless excuses for humans without souls.

  • Haters Suck!

    IMO
    Preach.

  • yets

    just believe in yourself girl we love you

  • Dee

    LOL! As if. Vanessa please SIT DOWN. But ….she did give us some comedy with that statement.

  • IMO

    @Haters Suck!: didn’t mean to offend you , man.

  • delusional

    lol yes, you’re going to win an Oscar honey – you, Lindsay lohan and kellan lutz!

  • Nightwish

    @delusional: These Hudgens lovers are a total riot. Tina has moved up to top-cop position on each hudgens post. You cant say anything bad about Hudgens with her around or she loses it. Hudgens is the rebecca black of the acting community. Her latest film, the frozen ground, just went rotten on RT (57/50). Some Idiot critics liked vanessas acting just because it was her first dramatic role, and they never saw her cry or whine before. Nevertheless, the film bombed badly. Hudgens really meant oscar mayer weiner, the hotdog, not the academy award. She… Oops, uh oh.. here comes tina with her baton.. Gotta RUN!!!!!

  • Nightwish

    @IMO: WTH? Hatersuck is a complete moron. Nobody worries about his feelings around here. Are you new? LMAO

  • Sim

    @static12: Maybe he has a chance to win an Oscar, although she would go even better actresses, but jenifer lawrence hahah, it seems to me from the prices start giving away to anyone, are so low,you stupid

  • Sim

    @tick: you stupid, I know of more talented actresses than lawrence haha, that’s me with that amused That would have been better to Vanessa

  • maria

    Nothing wrong with working towards an oscar. Jennifer Lawrence? Lobbied by Harvey Weinstein. Politics in Hollywood is alive and well. I saw nothing super special in her performance. But I also don’t think Natalie Portman should have won an oscar for clawing at her skin and looking terrified in Black Swan. Don’t get me started on that one. People like Nightwish are so hateful and lame. His schtick around here is getting so pathetic and lame. Give it up, dude. You’re like an annoying gnat that keeps buzzing around. We like her, so get over it. You don’t, so LEAVE.

  • maria

    @IMO: I don’t think you offended him at all. I think he was suggesting you should keep going. :)

  • Nightwish

    @maria: I agree with you about Portman, she is such a one dimensional whiney runt

  • tina

    One more time, if you havea job or are in a profession and you’re content to bethe lowest person on the rung, that’s you. Why waste time doing something if you don’t strive to be the best.

  • Haters Suck!

    @imo
    Little misunderstanding. When I say preach its a good thing. It comes church when the priest is preaching the good word. I say preach when someone makes a good point and u made a excellent point.

  • Nightwish

    And then theres the fact that Hudgens lacks the caliber and character of a big name respectable actor, but thats actually beside the point. She simply cant act. The box office says it all. I wonder if Tina would be so kind as to indulge the latest grosses for the frozen ground, if its even being published. Vod figures are so hard to come by, miniscule that they are.

  • Nightwish

    Anyone want to guess who my favorite actress is? Not kstew, kruger, woodley or jenn lawrence. Im totally with maria in comment 82, except for the latter part where she tells me to leave.

  • Nightwish

    @maria: They also gave nat portman way too much credit for all of the dancing done by sarah lane in the film. So much bs went on with the producers and director of the film, and poor sarah was made out to be a liar. Ill never forgive portman for condoning that. She just kept quiet the whole time. Theres a wiki writeup about that controversy.

  • D

    Nightwish
    you are obsessed with her OBSESSED you need some help

  • Danielle

    She is amazing!!

  • maria

    @Nightwish: I didn’t realize there was controversy with that. All I know, is she didn’t deserve that oscar, and I think she was also shoved down the throats of the academy members by her peeps. I can’t stand that kind of strategizing of studios. An actor should win their oscar based solely on their performance, not on the power of their studio to bully.

  • kasia

    @maria: The Academy also makes a big deal about actresses gaining or losing weight for a role. Every review or interview had to mention Portman’s 20 lb weight loss, along with her claiming she got so into the character that she thought she was gonna die on set, blah blah. I thought I was gonna love Black Swan, but I didn’t think it was that good.

  • kate

    Films are a form of entertainment so nothing is objective… Others like the movies and the actors who won Oscars others don’t.. It’s not the same for everyone because everyone has a different taste.. Like in Vanessa’s case , and in every actor’s, some like her as an actress some don’t…
    Now for the Oscar thing.. I think that every actor wants one.. But I think she shouldn’t have said that because she’s just in the beginning and she has a long way to go still.. Saying such a thing makes her look arrogant and think that she’s already an accomplished actress.Of course I’m not implying that she actually is and thinks that way… It’s good being ambitious but she should slow down regarding such statements in interviews.. She has to do more things in order to say such things…
    As for the frozen ground, i thought it was really good but not good enough for an Oscar… For those who are wondering how it did: It reached No5 on itunes the first days it was released .. I don’t know about now as I haven’t searched it.. It would do better if there was actually some promotion (showing the trailer on TV for example).. It’s sad that they didn’t put any serious effort into the promotion… I don’t know why that happens but every good movie that she did received so little promotion (the same happened with Bandslam)..
    What is more I don’t agree with her saying that she doesn’t care about what other say about her movie choices.. She said many times before that she wants to shock the audience and that statement comes in contrast.. They (her team) want to make her appear overly confident in which I disagree because it’s not bad to admit that you have moments when you’re self consious and that you care about what others think of you.. It’s something that is common among all humans.. Plus it would make her more likeable to the audience (which is important for actors, at least in hollywood)..
    Point is that she should be more careful regarding her statements and her team needs to do a better job.. Because she can do so much better!

  • kate

    Oh sorry I made a mistake according to the director it reached no2 in bestsellers!

  • tina

    @kate I will say this once more, if you don’t strive to be the best, why bother? No one goes into the acting field to be “the third girl on the left.” For an actor to say the don’t want an Oscar, they are just in it for the love of theather…. well,to me that sounds just a little phony. The only actor I have ever know to not accept an Oscar was Marlon Brando and that was to protest treatment of Native Americans. Not one has turned it down because they don’t think they deserve it.

  • kelly martineau

    Is v still a vergin? THink she did with Zac when they where dating. Think She did it with Austin. Or is she waiting for her wedding night.
