“After High School Musical, I was not looking for another musical,” she admitted. ”I was just kind of looking for a different character or an interesting director to work with. Things have fallen into place in a beautiful way. I can’t say it was planned out step by step. It’s just the way the world works.”
What did Vanessa think of all the false coverage while she was dating HSM co-star Zac Efron?
“It was interesting, but we got to a point where it was just like, we just can’t pay attention, because one week we’d be married and then the next week we’d be broken up and the next week I would have a baby. It was just the most obscene things.”
Vanessa said, “You really have to stay strong, because times get tough. Especially in this business. It’s a dog-eat-dog world. A lot of women get walked all over on by not standing up for themselves, and that’s just not what I’m about.”
