Vanessa Hudgens: Rosario Dawson Found My License in her Coat!

Vanessa Hudgens: Rosario Dawson Found My License in her Coat!

Vanessa Hudgens makes her way to her car after working up a sweat at yoga class on Monday (January 27) in Sherman Oaks, Calif.

The 25-year-old actress was spotted later that same day hiding her face behind her Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf coffee in Studio City.

“The amazing moment when Rosario [Dawson] reached into the pocket of a jacket that was loaned to her by Alice + Olivia and found my driver’s license,” Vanessa recently tweeted about a moment at the Gimme Shelter premiere. “(I borrowed the jacket a month ago and it’s just been sitting in the pocket waiting to be returned back home to me) #CRAZYBANANAS!!!! #crazytiming #thankgod lool,” she elaborated.

FYI: Vanessa is wearing Australia Luxe Collective Renegade boots.

    Hello

  • Kelly martineau

    This women is bored. All she does is work out. V go out and valunteer somewhere make your day more fulling. Don”t have no movie rolls coming up.
    Getting tired of this. And always hiding her face behind something.

  • Nightwish

    This critic Christy Lemire is totally honest without sounding like a paid gs shill:

    “Gimme Shelter” is a clunkily-made, batshit-crazy parable that hammers you over the head with its Christian, anti-abortion message. An after-school special blown up on the big screen, it stridently aims to inspire you. More likely, it’ll make you cringe.
    It’s hard not to admire the intention, the dedication, the almost animalistic demeanor she’s achieved. But then she opens her mouth, and her stiff line readings of awkward dialogue make it impossible to become emotionally engaged by her character’s journey”
    Again more observations about how hard hudgens tries but just fails badly. Maybe you guys should gang up on her like you do with me lol

  • Nightwish

    A wannabe model cant be a model just because shes obsessed about her posture and walks the runway stomping her feet. Understand, loosiers?

  • maria

    “Grim and unsettling, Gimme Shelter is a social tract about the benefits of getting into the homeless shelter game. It’s a true story about how one disenfranchised teenage girl, tortured and hardened by a hardscrabble life, finally learns to trust long enough to build a future. It’s not for the squeamish, but thanks to a riveting central performance by Vanessa Hudgens and a compassionate screenplay by Ron Krauss, who also directed, this is a far more sobering and substantial exposé of homeless teenage girls on the dangerous edge of society than you might expect.”

  • maria

    Now, she lands in Gimme Shelter, where she still gets to play a wild child — a tattooed and pierced pregnant 16-year-old runaway with a violent, prostitute mom — but it’s in the context of a more family-friendly, afterschool-special-style cautionary tale. As a vehicle for the young actress, Gimme Shelter works; she is by far the best thing about it.

    Hudgens captures both the defiance and fear of a girl at this crossroads. Her performance elevates what’s often a trite and heavy-handed script. There are a couple of noteworthy scenes, as when Apple and other residents of the shelter break into the office and read what’s in their files. It’s revealing and touching without being histrionic.

  • maria

    “Gimme Shelter is a good movie in the moral sense of the word, and it’s certainly not a bad movie in the technical sense of the word. Its presentation isn’t as good as its message, and it lacks some nuance and focus—the characters in particular don’t have as much depth and dimension as we might have liked—but their situations are dramatic, and that comes through. The writing is slightly above average for the genre. The cast is uniformly excellent. Vanessa Hudgens will probably get a lot of well-meaning but misguided praise for being unrecognizable, but that’s just make-up and wardrobe. She conveys both her character’s toughness and her emotional vulnerability without over-emoting.”

  • Nightwish

    @maria: Yes, the peeps who read misrepresented reviews like yours are the ones who come out of the movie pissed and duped. Have you even seen the movie yet?

  • Haters Suck!

    @nightwish
    Do you always laugh at your own jokes? Sounds like a paid off catholic basher.

  • Haters Suck!

    @nightwish
    You like to use this stat on rotten tomatoes all the time. Audience liked the movie 77%.

  • maria

    “Vanessa Hudgens gives a touching and sensitive performance in this fact-based story of a pregnant, homeless teenager. Both Hudgens and writer/director Ron Krauss moved into a shelter so that they could do justice to the stories of these young women. That dedication and integrity lifts this above the Afterschool Special formula for an affecting drama that shows us the resilience and courage of girls who have to learn very quickly to be the loving parents they never had.”

    I prefer to read reviews from people who appreciate the values and message of this movie.

  • Nightwish

    @Haters Suck!: I have lots of respect for the catholic church, dude. How bout you, have you seen the movie? Did you fix your car yet? You can always take a greyhound to whatever remote place this film is actually showing at

  • Nightwish

    @Haters Suck!: Go look at the people who comprise the 77%. Mostly planted comments. Man, use ur brane.

  • maria

    @Nightwish: And why is a good review a misrepresention? I am planning to see it this weekend and will thoroughly enjoy it, I am sure.

  • maria

    @Nightwish: So you’re saying Rotten Tomatoes is a farce.

  • Nightwish

    @maria: Geez maria, those reviews are so phake, bordering on outright lies. Anyways, let me know if you dont walk out of the movie when u see it, and be honest ok

  • Haters Suck!

    @nightwish
    I am catholic jackass so $crew you. So every thing positive about vanessa is paid off everything negative is legit. You’re an idiot. Why don’t you get a B-R-A-I-N.

  • hola

    ‘Gimme Shelter has received mostly negative reviews from critics, as the film currently holds a 23% rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on 57 reviews. However, it scores over 75% amongst users of the site. Hudgens’ performance has earned mainly mixed reviews from critics.’ See nightwish moron. It says 75%

  • truth

    NY Times
    ” Apple has let her hair grow out again and traded her androgynous street wear for dresses and cardigans. The piercings on her face are closing up, and her guarded, angry manner has softened, allowing an occasional smile and tear.

    But the internal change she has undergone is not credibly conveyed, and the film is more of a pageant than a convincing drama”

  • truth

    The Wrap
    ” the harried Apple screams at people, but once her life starts to settle down, she becomes utterly inert. It’s a performance that goes from 60 to zero.”

  • sigh

    oh, we are posting acting and film reviews? ok then..

    The film is not for every taste, of course, but what makes it inspiring is the truthfulness in the writing and direction, especially in a set of immaculate performances. James Earl Jones is warm and benevolent without being cloying, Brendan Fraser is touching as a man torn between duty and pragmatism, willing to make sacrifices to right an unbearable wrong, and Rosario Dawson as Apple’s hateful mother even manages to make invincible human tragedy vulnerable. But it is the galvanizing force of Vanessa Hudgens who catapults Gimme Shelter above the heartbreaking level of soap opera with a lancing effect. Even on the verge of mental collapse, she picks up the pieces and moves on gallantly, her face a three-act play of mortal tenderness. She has come a long way since the High School Musical franchise. Small wonder she names her baby Hope.

    Variety :

    “In director Ronald Krauss’ “Gimme Shelter,” a pregnant 16-year-old flees her down-and-out abusive mother and rich, abortion-pushing father to find salvation in a home for unwed mothers. Whenever the film concentrates on the teen’s interactions with the various authority figures who successively betray her, it remains relatively compelling, thanks largely to Vanessa Hudgens’ standout perf. But once she is rescued by a priest and taken to a shelter, the film is hamstrung by its fidelity to real-life inspirational models. Delivered by a name cast (Brendan Fraser, Rosario Dawson, James Earl Jones), the pic’s pointedly pro-life message should attract like-minded auds.”

    We meet our adolescent, unexpectedly expecting heroine, Agnes (in a commanding performance by Vanessa Hudgens) as she is escaping inner-city life with her drug-den mother (Rosario Dawson) and tracking down her wealthy father she has never met (Brendan Fraser, the cast’s weak link) in a New Jersey mansion. Various twists of nasty fates lead her to the shelter and a sense of “family” she has never before known.

  • sigh

    it may have a 24 rotten on RT but most reviews even if they are attacking the film , they still rate Vanessa’s effort ranging from decent to great. And movie goer reactions so far are great :D

  • zac effyou

    nightwish: doesn’t it sting that vanessa’s performance is hailed by both critics and moviegoers?

  • Nightwish

    @zac effyou: Depends what you mean by ‘hailed’. You sure use that word liberally. Lulz

  • truth

    New York TimesThat’s Commitment “Physically, Hudgens nails her work as Apple, and not just in terms of basic appearance, but in the way she carries herself, the entirety of her mannerisms, her very presence on the screen. She’s boyish, zitty, hunched over, and profoundly closed off. It’s easily the most effective part of the entire film, and it’s a shame that her physical work doesn’t match her line delivery, which starts off wooden before eventually ending up as vaguely passable.”

    Lol.this is the awesomest review of hudgens. You can acess it only once and i missed my chance to copy paste. Wish someone does that

  • truth

    ” in its vanity-free physicality, Hudgens’ performance is committed — the slouch, the boorish table manners, the thief’s reflexes. But in early scenes especially, she overplays her character’s two emotional notes, sullenness and rage.”

    The hollywood reporter

  • .

    @kate: oh gawd do these people really waste their time analyzing an actress like vanessa hudgens? Guess they do it for every movie huh? Vanessa looks very old.. wth happaned to her face?

  • .

    Her hairline is not attractive. So i guess thats why her hair is always worn down?

  • maria

    Ron Krauss: Exactly four years ago today, I saw a young girl standing outside the shelter. She had no jacket and it was freezing. I brought her inside. Her name was Darlisha Dozier and when I told her there was a bed she hugged me so hard it sent a jolt to my heart.
    How did you choose Vanessa Hudgens for Apple?
    When I went back to Hollywood with the script, every famous 20-something actress wanted the role. I never thought a Hollywood actress could do it but I auditioned a bunch. One day, Vanessa Hudgens showed up telling me this part was for her. She had a swagger and heart the other girls didn’t but I needed the approval of the shelter girls. I sent them a link of eight girls who’d auditioned — some were famous, some local girls from a high school. Vanessa was in that group. The girls watched the link, having no idea who Vanessa was. They all said, “That’s the girl.”

  • maria

    @Nightwish: Her performance IS mostly hailed, in spite of the movie having flaws. As far as reviews, you can find some that are exactly what YOU are looking for. But not everyone looks at things the same, and therefore, others LIKE her performance. Hey, I saw some that hated Rosario, saying she was a screaming banshee. But for the MOST part, people do acknowledge Vanessa in a positive way. That’s good enough for me. Shame on those who don’t. This role brings her a LONG way from fluff and HSM, and they still can’t give her credit. Screw them.

  • maria

    And honestly, the critics complaining about the delivery of her lines, have missed the whole point of her character. This is a downtrodden, hopeless, homeless girl. She is not going to enunciate her lines. So screw them too. :)

  • Nightwish

    Maria, To balance the BS in the other article about every actress begging for the role lol-
    “Krauss originally wanted to cast an unknown actress as Apple, someone who “understood the streets and the intensity of that life.” Hudgens, however, had read the script and ASKED TO AUDITION. Krauss was impressed, but still auditioned other actresses and sent the tapes along to DiFiore for her and the girls at the shelter to review. Unanimously, they all picked Hudgens even though “they didn’t know who she was.”
    HAHAHA, no wonder he miscast hudgens.. He let a few girls in the shelter pick her. Good lord, idiots all around with this project.

  • Nightwish

    Lets find out who he means by “every other famous actress”. Get to it maria, find us a list, maybe it includes angelina jolie, keira knightley, scarlett johanson, lulz…

  • Erin

    I was going to see this movie because it was in my theater, but they took it out so now I’m like “oh well”.

  • maria

    @Nightwish: That was an interview with Krauss. I have no idea who auditioned. I doubt we are privy to that list.
