Listen up, peeps! Vanessa Hudgens wants to let you know she’s more than just a pretty, Disney face, just like her boyfriend Zac Efron did earlier this week on the cover of GQ.

In the May 2009 issue of Self Magazine, the 20-year-old actress reveals “25 things you didn’t know you loved about her.”

The best tidbits?

  • On the future of her acting career:”I’d like to do an action film where I could kick someone’s ass. I want to be strong and empowered. I want to shock everybody.”
  • On her favorite celeb: “I’m in love with Angelina Jolie. Everything she does, I adore.”
  • On what’s in her purse: A taser. “I keep [it] for self-defense. I’m moving into a house by myself, and it’s scary.”
  • On what her dad passed down to her: “I have really strong legs. I inherited them from my dad, who has tree

    stumps for legs, basically. I’ve got big calves that look good. When I wear heels, it looks like I’ve worked out my legs a lot, which is why I love them. I also have a big, big big toe. I call it my goat toe. I can climb anything.”
