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.

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?

It was a celebration of the young, pretty and talented this week at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood.

On Wednesday night, NYLON magazine hosted its Young Hollywood Party, which honored many of the industry's up-and-comers. Among them: the gals featured in this magazine's May issue.

Hudgens showed up at the event with Zac Efron, while Tisdale caught up with Aly Michalka and remained close to boyfriend Scott Speer.

As for Greene? Speculation continues about her status for Breaking Dawn. Might she actually not be included in the final chapter of The Twilight Saga?!?

That answer is for another day. Let's just enjoy these the beauty of these actresses for now...

It's easy to get discouraged about the state of young actresses these days. How come? We have two words for you:

Lindsay Lohan.

But NYLON magazine is on a mission of hope. It features a pair of rising stars in its annual Young Hollywood issue: Ashley Greene and Vanessa Hudgens.

Granted, both these beauties have had nude photos leaked online... but they've learned from their mistakes and Greene tells the publication: Her generation is full of "people who really love the business.”

Unlike Lohan, Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian and many others that seek out the paparazzi, Greene said:

"I know their cars. But there’s always people sitting outside my house. I put my own security system in my apartment because you have to worry about people getting a little too obsessed.”

Meanwhile, Hudgens dishes on - and jokes about - her upcoming dramatic turn in the movie Sucker Punch:  “At one point, we all play hookers. And there are burlesque shows! I do a belly dance in the most amazing belly-dance costume you have ever seen in your life... Watch me in Sucker Punch, and you’ll be afraid of me."

Portia Doubleday, who starred in Youth in Revolt, is also featured in the photo shoot. Check out all three actresses below. There's hope for young Hollywood yet!

Vanessa Hudgens is about to take a major career step.

The former High School Musical star will soon put on her singing-and-dancing shoes again, but she'll do it a production of a Tony-winning musical: Hudgens has signed on to play Mimi, a dancer with HIV, in an upcoming production of Rent.

The play is will run on August 6, 7 and 8 at the Hollywood Bowl. It will be directed by Neil Patrick Harris, who has nothing but praise Vanessa. He says:

"She came in for a work session, and I must say, Vanessa really impressed. She looks amazing, has great vocal chops and seems really committed to honoring the somewhat iconic role of Mimi. I look forward to audiences seeing a dark, edgy and very different side of Vanessa Hudgens this August."

Angelina Jolie isn't the only celebrity that donates her time and money to important causes.

Last night, Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens played a vital role at the inaugural St. Jude Children’s Hospital’s “Estrellas Por La Vida” gala in Los Angeles.

Count Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens among the latest celebrities to offer their assistance to the victims of this month's earthquake in Haiti.

The cute couple have agreed to help George Lopez raise funds for that nation at Help Haiti, a concert taking place on Thursday, February 4.

Zac and Vanessa join stars such as Ray Ramono, Margaret Cho and Ozzy Osbourne at the event. Visit LopezTonight.com for more information on it.

Writes the comedian on his website:

“The people of Haiti need our help. On Thursday, February 4th, I am throwing a benefit concert called “Help Haiti” at the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE here in Los Angeles. The best musicians, comedians and athletes will be there for the cause, including my friends Andy Garcia, Slash and Samuel Jackson.

"One-hundred percent of the proceeds will go to directly to Haiti to help the victims and their families. Keep checking this page for more information on how to purchase tickets for Help Haiti."

It's a great cause. Hopefully Efron and Hudgens get more dressed up for it than they are above.

Exciting, unconfirmed Zanessa news out of the tabloid world this morning:

Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron may soon become roommates!

A source told the print edition of In Touch Weekly that things keep getting better between this pair, as Hudgens wants to spend as much time with her man as possible.

  • Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron
  • Zanessa Sighted

“When Vanessa was apart from Zac while filming her upcoming movies Beastly and Sucker Punch, she realized how much she missed him and loved being around him all the time," the insider said. "When she got back to LA, she told him she wanted them to move in together."

Referring to the adorable pair as “as young, but very serious about each other," the friend adds that house hunting may soon commence.

Last week, in a similar move, Liam Hemsworth reportedly moved in with Miley Cyrus (and her parents). We'd like to send both these couples best wishes. May you never fight about dirty dishes in the sink!

As we head into a new decade, who are the young celebrities on whom we should keep an eye?

While this comes as no surprise to THG staff members and readers, Vanity Fair has cited a pair of "Women to Watch Out For." They are... drumroll in full force... Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez!

Each rising star is interviewed in the magazine. What do they think of fame, fortune and celebrity crushes? A few excerpts from each young beauty are below:

Hudgens, on growing up: “I started off as a super-shy girl, extremely hesitant. Now I’m really growing into my own person. I can actually take care of myself, which my mom thought would never happen.”

Hudgens, on the paparazzi: “It was like, ‘Oh, my God! No way! So cool.’ The second day it happens, it’s like, Never mind. Maybe it’s not as cool as I thought it’s going to be.”

Gomez, on her well-known crush: "I am obsessed with Shia LaBeouf. He’s gorgeous and he’s a phenomenal actor. I haven’t met him — I think I’d have a heart attack if I did. I’ll wait till I’m older so that I can work with him. Maybe I’ll have calmed down by then."

The February Vanity Fair issue hits comes out on Thursday, January 21.

Vanessa Hudgens might have a nice body, but the actress wants to keep it to herself. And Zac Efron, of course.

The actress is suing the owners of www.moejackson.com because the website has posted her most recent nude photos - described in the suit as "self-portrait photographs" - and has refused to take them down.

"The photos were obtained by unknown methods and posted on the internet by an unknown person without Hudgens' knowledge or consent," reads the lawsuit's documents.

Clothes On

Oddly, TMZ reports Hudgens has registered the naked pics with the U.S. Copyright Office. Her lawyers are seeking monetary compensation for damages from Butter Media, the company that owns the domain.

We're all for justice, Vanessa, but you do realize this lawsuit will draw attention to your naked pictures on that website, don't you? Perhaps that's your Christmas present to young male fans around the world.

Vanessa Hudgens Quotes

You know, we’re here to talk about the movie.

Vanessa Hudgens [as a press conference for High School Musical 3, asked about Miley Cyrus photos]

Just recently I've learned to be okay with myself without wearing makeup. I think it was a special someone telling me that I didn't need it. I started taking care of my skin and realized I didn't need as much as I thought I did.
