Vanessa Hudgens on Boyfriend Austin Butler: 'I Am So Lucky'
Here’s what 26-year-old actress, who styled the shoot herself, had to share with the mag:
On living life: To me, life is all about perspective. The way you choose to see the world can altar your everyday life. I choose to lead with love. Love to others, but especially myself. I love who I am. I work hard everyday to be the best version of myself that I can be. With daily gratitude and a positive outlook, I try to enjoy the little things and look at the world through a child’s eyes. When you are a child, your imagination is thriving. You don’t judge things, people or situations. You simply experience life to the fullest. The world can be a bit more magical, you just have to choose to see it that way.
On advice for today’s generation about social media: “Don’t obsess over it. There’s a beautiful world out there and nothing compares to human contact. Yes social media can be fun but don’t dedicate too much time to it. Live your life first, and share moments you’ve captured second.”
On photo apps that can change your appearance: “I think it’s quite silly. If you don’t like the way you look in a photo then quite frankly, maybe you’re trying to be someone you’re not. Women shine so bright when they know who they are and are proud to show it. Express yourself in photos, don’t try to be someone else.”
On who inspired her the most: “Honestly, I think my boyfriend [Austin Butler]. I am so lucky. I have never witnessed someone work harder on their craft and well being more than Austin does. He inspires me to be more knowledgable in every aspect of life.”
