Vanessa Hudgens wants to be treated like an adult.
The 20-year-old actress – who is dating Zac Efron - admits it’s hard to get rid of her teen idol image and is now keen to showcase her acting talents.
She said: "People think of me as the ‘High School Musical’ girl. There's nothing wrong with that. My character was a great role model, but I get so bored doing the same thing. I want to grow like everybody else."
Vanessa – who plays a prostitute in new movie ‘Sucker Punch’ – also spoke of her upset over nude pictures of her which were leaked on the internet.
She told Allure magazine: "It's just really unfortunate, and to this day people hate me for it, but it's not like I chose to put that out there in the world. It's so aggravating and frustrating, and whenever anybody asks me, would I do nudity in a film, if I say that it's something I'm not comfortable with, they're like, 'Bulls**t, you've already done it.'
“If anything it makes it more embarrassing, because that was a private thing. It's screwed up that someone screwed me over like that. At least some people are learning from my mistakes."
