Ashley Tisdale Tosses Out Her Top For 'Maxim'
The former 'High School Musical' star talks men, 'Scary Movie V' and stalker-like fans.
The actress, who rose to fame on the High School Musical franchise, is proving she's anything but child-friendly these days in the May 2013 issue of Maxim, on newsstands now. Donning ruffed bikini bottoms and a leather biker jacket, Tisdale smolders for the camera in a skin-baring beach photo spread, in which she opens up about men, family and filming with Lindsay Lohan.
"There's definitely a thing where I like the dark, mysterious bad boy," Tisdale, 27, describes of her type, while adding she wouldn't turn down "surfer, blond frat guys."
And once she's set her sights on a man, she wants to cut to the chase. "I'm not into the 'game' so much," says the star, whose dating record includes musician Jared Murillo and music video director Scott Speer. "If I like you, I'll confront you and be open about it. Then I expect you to come after me."
“I think Lindsay’s great!" she gushes. "There were so many cameos, and that’s what I love about these movies. They’d write a scene, then look for cameos, and they’d just pop in and do it. It was, like, Whoa, Mike Tyson’s here, and that wasn’t even planned!”
But now that she's in the spotlight to stay, Tisdale and her family have had to field their fair share of over-zealous fans. “Once I Instagrammed a picture of me waking up, and the next day this older gentleman came to my parents’ house saying he wasn’t going to leave till he saw me," she recalls. "I was like, maybe I shouldn’t have taken a picture of me in bed?”
