Vanessa Hudgens: “I always wanted to play a prostitute”


Vanessa Hudgens has always dreamed of playing “stripper or a prostitute”.
The 29-year-old actress is best known for playing Gabriella Montez in the High School Musical , but she admitted the success of those movies distracted her from her original ambitions in the movie business.
She shared: “I woke up at 27 and I was like, I have no idea who I am and what I’m doing. Which is funny because at 25, I was like, ‘I’ve got life covered! We’re good! Smooth sailing!’
“ High School Musical was a fantastic journey, but it completely derailed me from where I originally saw my career going.
“I always wanted to be the indie girl; I always wanted to be in the movies where I’m playing a drug addict or a stripper or a prostitute. That was my goal since I was like, 11.”
Meanwhile, Vanessa feels it’s a “very special time to be a woman” in the film industry.
The actress says Hollywood has gone through a cultural change since the launch of the MeToo movement and the sex scandal of 2017.
She explained to The Guardian newspaper: “For a long time, such a prominent thing was girls not supporting each other, backstabbing each other, trying to tear each other down.
“One of the positive side-effects of the #MeToo movement and the burning spotlight on the need for more female directors, writers and roles, is that those girls have become a community of grown women.”
Vanessa feels like the conversation has shifted over the past 12 months, suggesting that women’s views are now being treated with more respect.
She said: “The conversation has changed so much. We’re being heard in a way we haven’t been heard in a long time and people gravitate towards that. It’s a very special time to be a woman.”
