How to Live Like…Vanessa Hudgens

Vanessa Hudgens, one of Hollywood’s most promising young stars, seems to be getting hotter and hotter by the day minute. Her career doesn’t look like it will be cooling down any time soon. 

With two successful installments of Disney’s High School Musical under her belt, and a third hitting theaters this weekend, Vanessa takes care of business and still finds time to live the life of a fabulous Hollywood A-lister.

Celebuzz dug up the dirt on your favorite singing Disney star.


Vanessa doesn’t have any special workout secrets; she just keeps that killer bod by frequenting the gym, and somehow always manages to look cute while doing it.  Her favorite workout buddies are her mom and her HSM co-star and friend, Ashley Tisdale.


Vanessa’s favorite foods are sushi, peanut butter crackers and chocolate. 

“I just love chocolate and I can’t give it up,” Vanessa has said. “It just appears in my mouth!”  It sounds like she’s speaking for every other girl in America!

Vanessa is also a fan of hitting up all the hottest eateries with boyfriend and co-star, Zac Efron.
