Bikini-Clad Vanessa Hudgens in Shape Magazine

Vanessa Hudgens Shape Magazine

Poor Vanessa Hudgens. She can keep her clothes on and men with high testosterone levels will still look back on the day she took and sent out those nude photos of herself. But not me. I find this cover more appetizing than the total nudity 😉

Vanessa is on the cover of next month’s issue of fitness magazine Shape, and here’s what the 22-year-old former Disney star had to share: [via Just Jared]

On her fast food addiction back in 2007: “I was so unhealthy. I used to go to Cold Stone Creamery, get a tub of Butterfinger ice cream and eat it all before bedtime. And my fingers were permanently stained orange from Cheetos. When I came back [to High School Musical], I almost couldn’t get my costume on. When I finally got it zipped up, my boobs were up to my chin!”

On getting in shape for Sucker Punch: “I knew it was going to be hard but I didn’t know how hard. In the beginning I could dead lift 135 lbs. By the end, I lifted 180 lbs. I was a monster … Exercise is amazing from the inside out. I feel so alive and have more energy.”

On ex-boyfriend Zac Efron: “Long-distance relationships are hard no matter what. When you don’t have face-to-face time, it’s just different. Having an iPhone helped, but it wasn’t the same. We grew up together. It was nice to have someone to share all those experiences with. It was a good thing. The relationship kept me grounded and because I was with someone who knew me so well, I didn’t need to try to be someone that I’m not.”

Vanessa is now promoting two films; Beastly, a modern day retelling of Beauty and the Beast and Sucker Punch, an action-fantasy movie directed by Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen).
