These Vanessa Hudgens Outtakes From Her Paper Mag Shoot Caught Our Eye

If that Mickey Mouse sweater looks familiar, it’s because we recently saw Miley Cyrus rocking a red-colored version during New York Fashion Week. Marc Jacobs is the designer.
Check the full interview with Vanessa Hudgens on Paper Magazine’s website, but we found it very interesting that even though so many years have passed, the nude pics situation is still a soft spot for Vanessa. Here’s a snippet:
In 2007 nude photographs the actress had taken ended up on the Internet. “That was just a really shitty situation that sucked,” Hudgens tells me over breakfast at Kings Road Cafe in Studio City, her mood deflating for the first and only time in the two hours that we spend together. “That was by far the worst moment of my career.”
But to our surprise, the Paper Mag interviewer acknowledges the obvious by writing quite simply that the horrible experience was a “blessing in disguise” and was successful in “signaling to the world that she was not just the one-dimensional squeaky-clean face on the HSM collectible lunch boxes. She was a typical 18-year-old girl with a camera phone and a sexual appetite.” Ditching the Disney stigma is something another Disney starlet, Miley Cyrus, has been (unsuccessfully) trying to do for a while. Miley, if you want a one-way ticket to adult-stardom where people in Hollywood take you seriously, email us a few camera phone photos of yourself & we’ll take it from there.
The other part of the interview that I found interesting was James Franco’s method style of acting. Apparently the dude comes on set in character & then proceeds to stay in character even when the director yells, “Cut.” He was so convincing that Vanessa admits that she knows nothing about James Franco. Here’s an excerpt:
It was Franco, her avant-garde co-star, who attracted her to the unlikely project. (“I saw that James was already attached and I am his biggest fan. I thought, ‘I need to be in this movie.'”) But even though they shared intimate scenes together, including a three-way love sequence in a swimming pool, Hudgens is not any more familiar with the enigmatic actor now than she was when she first read the script.
“I still don’t know him,” Hudgens says in wonderment. “I have no idea who James Franco is. I know who Alien is. He’s that into method acting. He comes on set as his character. In between scenes, he is still his character. When I first saw him, I was speechless because he just completely transformed himself. The way he talked, with that accent… Everything he does is so organic.”
