Single looks good on Vanessa Hudgens.
Following her recent breakup with former “High School Musical” co-star Zac Efron, Vanessa is branching out both personally and professionally, posing for a sizzling new lingerie spread for Details magazine and dishing the dirt on her upcoming movies and newfound “balls”!
“We trained with Navy Seals,” Vanessa told the mag in an interview for their March 2011 issue, of preparing for her role as a gun-toting asylum escapee in Zack Snyder’s “Sucker Punch.” “We were machines. You could not f--k with us. We’d all go running around Vancouver, where we filmed… We’d intentionally cruise back alleys, knowing that if anything did happen we’d be all right. Taking the safest way home at that point was just boring.”
In addition to “Sucker Punch,” Vanessa is shooting a sequel to “Journey to the Center of the Earth” with veteran screen icon Michael Caine — and she says that the British actor is quite taken with his young co-star.
“[Michael] is uh-mazing. Not only is he uh-mazingly, stupidly talented, but he still kind of hits on me. All the time,” Vanessa told the mag. “If it was anybody else, I’d be like ‘Who the hell do you think you are?’ But because it’s Michael Caine, I’m like, ‘Sock it to me more, baby, come on!’ I frickin’ love him.”
The 22-year-old actress is also growing into her own skin and taking her career into her own hands.
“After the Oscars we were at Madonna’s party. Quentin Tarantino was there, and I was talking to him for a while, probably after a few drinks, and I told him, ‘We’ve gotta do something together.’ And he was like, ‘I would love to. That would be really great,’” Vanessa told the mag. “So it’s been put out there.
“Slowly, I’ve gained balls,” the former Disney darling added. “I used to be very shy… Hopefully [Quentin] won’t look back and think, ‘Oh my God. That crazy bitch.’”
