Vanessa Hudgens may have plans to drown her sorrows in alcohol, but at least she won't be doing it alone.

The actress, who turned 22 on Tuesday and who split with longtime boyfriend Zac Efron this month, will be feted with a much-hyped birthday party in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

Vanessa Hudgens Candie's Ad

While this sounds like a Kim Kardashian-esque cry for attention, such trauma in Hudgens' personal life makes it understandable. She just needs a bit of love and a slew of shots. Be happy and be healthy, Vanessa. Have a blast!

For weeks now, we knew that Vanessa Hudgens would be turning 22 years old today.

We just never thought she'd be doing so alone.

Indeed, Hudgens and Zac Efron shocked all of Hollywood yesterday when news of their split went public. All sources indicate the break-up is amicable, but send Vanessa an extra birthday wish or two today if you can.

Hudgens does have a reason to smile. She plays a major role in Beastly, a widely-anticipated remake of Beauty and the Beast that comes out in March.

Check out the official trailer NOW. Happy birthday, 'Nessa!

I don't know what it was with Vanessa, but we kind of clicked from the very beginning. - Zac Efron, July 2007

Those words are difficult to read today for fans of the couple known as Zanessa, as E! News has broken the shocking news: Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens have split.

"They were together for so long. It just ran its course," an insider says of the break-up, while another source swears the pair remains friends and that "no third party" was involved.

As is often the case with celebrity couples, scheduling may have played a role in Zac and Vanessa's demise. They met on the set of High School Musical and have been together for years, but their careers have taken them to different parts of the world recently.

For instance: Efron is currently shooting The Lucky One in New Orleans, while Hudgens is wrapping up Journey 2: The Mysterious Island later this week in Hawaii.

It's a sad day for those of us who believed we'd be celebrating a Zanessa wedding in the near future, but let's not cry because it's over. Let's smile because all of this happened...

Gabriella Montez who?!?

In the upcoming movie Sucker Punch, it's safe to say that Vanessa Hudgens leaves her High School Musical character behind. Far, far behind.

Sleek and Straight

As Blondie, Hudgens plays a girl that comes to life in an alternate reality. The film is directed by Zach Snyder and focuses on an institutionalized woman that gets sent to a psychiatric facility by her stepfather. It comes out in March 2011.

In an interview this week, boyfriend Zac Efron described Hudgens as someone who "loves to have fun." It certainly looks like that applies in this case, doesn't it?

Miley Cyrus isn't the only young actress making a point of telling the world that she's all grown up.

She's just the only one who feels the need to do so by simulating a same-sex kiss with a back-up dancer.

Vanessa Hudgens, conversely, is giving interviews to magazines in which she talks about taking on more mature film roles (such as the daughter of a drug addict in next year’s Beastly) and admits that she actually dislikes life in the spotlight.

Here are a few excerpts of such a discussion with the new issue of Glamour:

On pressure to be a role model: When I am around kids and they come up to me, of course I am going to act a certain way, but at the end of the day, I’m doing this for myself. I’m going to be doing movies kids can’t watch.

On attending public events: I can’t breathe, and I get claustrophobic. It’s a very odd business. I do it because I love acting, but I don’t know if I’ll ever get used to it.

On bonding with boyfriend Zac Efron: Right off the bat, we had a connection. I think everybody could see it. When we had our audition, they paired us together. And he was adorable.

From Glamour

On her nude photos scandal: I think that it has made me stronger. But it still hurts. It sucks because [the photos were] supposed to be private, but at the same time a lot of actresses do it [in movies]. Eventually, I’m sure that I will. But I don’t know if I would be able to do it now.

Has she grown up too fast? Maybe. And maybe that’s the reason why I am silly at 21. But I don’t regret it. And if I wasn’t how I was when I was younger, I wouldn’t be how I am today. You know? And I love the way I am today.

On her love of denim: A, it goes with anything. And, B, if your jeans hug you the right way, you feel like a sexpot. [Laughs.] And they get better with age!

In many ways, Kristen Stewart stole the show at last night's MTV Movie Awards.

Or, to be specific, her lips stole the show, as Kristen and Robert Pattinson made out on stage.

Mugler Shot

But Stewart wasn't the only young, beautiful actress on hand at the event. Former High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens also graced the red carpet, showing up with boyfriend Zac Efron.

That hunky star isn't pictured below, but Stewart and Hudgens are matched up against each other in our latest edition of the THG Fashion Face-Off. Who do you think looked prettier on the red carpet?
