Vanessa Hudgens spoke with talk show host Rachael Ray about her upcoming role in “Gimme Shelter,” and about how she prepared for the role. Vanessa took acting in this movie very seriously, so much so that she stayed in a homeless teen shelter in order to prepare for the film.
For Gimme Shelter, my character ends up at this pregnant, homeless teen shelter that’s actually ran in New Jersey by a woman and I actually went and stayed in the shelter for two weeks before I started filming. So I mean like, I lived there with all the girls, with all the kids, so I think that it’s really interesting because you find so much more about yourself. I actually cut my own hair for this movie, I did that to myself, yes I did. [Rosario Dawson and I] both look so messed up in this movie.
No word yet on the exact premiere date of Vanessa’s new movie, but we’ll keep you posted.
