Fans were shocked earlier this year when Vanessa Hudgens showed off her new dramatic haircut. Now she is sharing that she was more than happy to do it, as her role in the film Gimme Shelter that instigated the cut is her dream role. She stars with James Earl Jones and Rosario Dawson in the film that will be released in 2012.
Vanessa Hudgens plays Agnes “Apple” Bailey in the new film, and she shared, “The character I got to play in this movie is like my dream role.” She adds, “I got to do all the things I feel every actor wants to do. I mean, for God’s sake I had to have labor on film, there was no shame. I had to do a pregnancy test strip on film, which is kind of awkward with the whole pulling the pants off.”
The film is in the post production phase right now, and Hudgens says of the filming, “It was fun, it was very interesting.” The role is certainly a significant departure from what many of her fans have seen her do before, and they will be anxious to see her stretch outside her comfort zone.
