Vanessa Hudgens Set to Tackle Prostitute Role in ‘Frozen Ground’

Posted by PZ on July 18th, 2013


Looking to turn her Disney image right on its head, Vanessa Hudgens has ditched her good girl persona for good it seems. She recently starred in ‘Spring Breakers’ which saw her shake things up a little as a bikini-clad college girl with an insatiable appetite for drugs/alcohol/chaos/murder. Now, she’s landed another edgy part, this time as a prostitute in new film ‘Frozen Ground’ which will see her co-star with Nicolas Cage. Speaking on the part, Vanessa says that playing such a demanding role has been a strange ambition she’s had for quite some time:

“I always wanted to play a really heavy role. I remember being like 12 I think and being like ‘I want to play a prostitute and do drugs.”

Despite ditching her Disney girl look, Vanessa says that she doesn’t have anything against the big company – in fact, she still loves all Disney films and regularly watches them all of the time:

“I love Disney. I still watch Disney movies to this day. I still had such an amazing experience and I got to bring musicals to kids all over the world and it’s awesome, a really cool thing. It’s a legacy, I’m really proud of it.”
