Vanessa Hudgens Debuts Fall-inspired Hair

Vanessa Hudgens’ ‘$$$ex’ Teaser Video Is As Subtle As You’d Expect (VIDEO)

(Roadside Attractions) Also By Amy Kaufman September 27, 2013, 10:50 a.m. Of all the onetime Disney stars, Vanessa Hudgens has always seemed particularly eager to shed her squeaky-clean image. While Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez were still trying to appease their tween fanbases, Hudgens was dealing with blowback from an infamous nude-photo scandal. And following the conclusion of the “High School Musical” franchise, she almost immediately began taking on dark film roles instead of sticking with more PG -fare. This year alone, she’s been seen as a concubine, a bikini-clad party animal and a runaway stipper. Up next? A pregnant teenager. On Thursday, Roadside Attractions announced that it had acquired “Gimme Shelter,” based on the true story on a 16-year-old homeless teen who finds refuge at a women’s shelter. The film is set to premiere at Indiana’s Heartland Film Festival next month, and Roadside plans to release it in January. PHOTOS: Fall movie sneaks 2013 Hudgens, 24, physically transformed herself for the movie, chopping off her long locks and spending two weeks living in a shelter for research. “We were quite impressed with Vanessa Hudgens, who delivered a terrific, and transformative, performance, Roadside co-president Howard Cohen said in a statement. Hudgens seemed at home as a gun-toting college girl in “Spring Breakers” earlier this year, but her turn as a pole dancer in the crime thriller “The Frozen Ground” was not embraced by audiences in August. Clearly, Hudgens has lofty aspirations: In the October issue of Marie Claire, she said she aspires to have a career like Meryl Streep ‘s and wants to win an Oscar. “That’s what my goal is,” she told the magazine, “which is why I’m very picky about what I do, and I make sure I’m not doing the same thing over and over.” ALSO:

Hollywood backlot moments

“I am human like everyone else. I am aware that there are people who look up to me. When mistakes are made, they aren’t intentional, and I constantly push myself to be a better person.” Fair enough. And the former High School Musical star also opens up about finding happiness in the cutthroat Hollywood world. “You have a choice whether you want to be happy or not. I choose to be happy. And it’s been working out pretty well,” she says, adding. “A sense of knowing I’m part of something bigger than myself has allowed me to enjoy life more. And not worry about the little things. Like paparazzi.” Hudgens’ Spring Breakers costar Selena Gomez also shares her thoughts on her pal’s down-to-earth demeanor, insisting Hudgens hasn’t let her life in Hollywood go to her head. “She’s not jaded at all,” Gomez insists. “The person you see and talk to is the same person I talk to.” As for Hudgens’ dreams for the future? “A vintage Mustang, kids, and an Oscar,” the Frozen Ground star confesses.

House Of Style

The dark on top, light on bottom look has been around for a while and was due for a change, and Vanessa is just the lady to provide that ~inspiration~. V. Hudg, a proud member of the Frequently Changing Hair Club, debuted her new look on Instagram and only one word comes to mind: autumnal. That word could be stuck in our brains because her caption tells us it’s her ” autumn hair ” (my autumn hair is the same as my winter, spring, and summer hair!), OR it could be because the blend of red, yellow, and brown really evokes a feeling of fall foliage. I know exactly what having nature-inspired hair is like: mine often feels and looks like a nest. The top of Vanessa’s hair is her natural brown, but instead of just blonde woven in at the bottom, she’s thrown in a little red halfway down. Normally, the changing of the leaves makes us sad. Sure, it’s pretty, but it also means winter is on its way and we’re never to see daylight again (JK, only for, like, four months)! Vanessa’s changing hair, though, leaves us excited for alllll the seasonal hair changes we (read: she) can try. For instance, a light blue and gray a la Rihanna for winter? Sure, dyeing your hair for each season may not keep it in tip-top healthy shape, but no one will know what to expect from you.

In the September issue of Penthouse, Bob Guccione had published a series of nude photographs of Williams, posing with another young woman. The photos raked in $24 million for Penthouse, and Williams was pressured by pageant officials and resigned. She lost her title and lost at least $2 million worth of endorsement contracts, according to People magazine. In her 2009 book, “You Have No Idea,” Williams addressed the scandal and wrote that at the time she worried most about how her parents would react.
