In the latest issue of OK!, Ashley Tisdale makes it clear that she’s moving on from High School Musical.

While the young singer/actress is grateful for that franchise, she’s also looking ahead to a successful, more mature career on screen.

Read on to see what she has to say about body image, friends and love…

Ashley Tisdale at Billboard Music Awards

On being thin: “I’ve been very skinny my whole life… I don’t really like this look. I like curves — I think that’s more beautiful… I look at Jessica Alba and think she’s got a great body. I think that’s what women are supposed to look like.”

On gal pals: “It’s important to have girlfriends, because guys tend to come and go… I hang out with Miley Cyrus and Vanessa Hudgens a lot and watch chick flicks and I listen to music like Pink’s ‘So What’ and Britney Spears’ ‘Out From Under.’ That helps me move on faster. Miley’s a big sweetheart. She’s stayed true to herself and hasn’t changed for how huge she is. She’s always there to listen.”

On her ideal man: “I’m a big romantic, so I love guys who are romantic too. I think it’s important to be with someone that you can be yourself around. I need a guy that I can hang out with in sweats and no makeup and still feel comfortable and beautiful. Someone who’s trustworthy.”

So, Ashley, is that guy named Scott Speer?
