We had the opportunity to interview Vanessa Hudgens to talk more about her perspective of the movie and we also had a chance to get to know more about her. Find out what she had to say after the jump.
Hudgens said that as a Filipino-American, she is honored to be one of the forefront actresses in Hollywood and she likes to stand up for “her people.” While filming in Hawaii, Hudgens loved being there. She said her office is like a paradise and she enjoyed going to work every day. She enjoyed being outside in Hawaii because the scenery is breathtaking.
When asked how it was like working with the casts and if she encountered any challenges with them, she said that the cast was such a random combination of people. However, when working together, everyone exerted the same amount of effort, they all inputted ideas together, and no one was being stuck up or anything.
Vanessa Hudgens thinks she can relate with the character. Similar to Kailani, Hudgens is also close with her family. She is not afraid to get her hands dirty and like to go out and have fun. She is just as adventurous as her character in Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. Hudgens’ most recent adventure was going backpacking in Costa Rica and kayaking. Although she likes going on adventures, she did tell us that she would not volunteer herself to go through the same adventure as what happens in the movie. She does not really want to get chased by a giant lizard! Hudgens said, “I prefer less big creatures. I do like going outside though. If I could choose, I would want to go to India and see their culture and see the beautiful architecture.”
What is Vanessa Hudgens working on now? She told us that she is working on a new movie called Spring Breakers with Selena Gomez and James Franco. Hudgens said she finally get to experience what college students do during spring break. And you will get to see how crazy girls get during spring break.
This movie is going to be in IMAX 3D and in theaters worldwide on February 10. It will be a nice movie to watch with the family!
