Meryl Streep has something Vanessa Hudgens wants – a long career. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar Arabia as their December cover girl, Hudgens talks about idolizing Streep and admiring her extensive filmography, something she says she hopes to have.
Hudgens says, “She [Meryl Streep] has such an amazing, long career, and that’s the goal – a long career! She has done everything there is to do under the roof, and been brilliant at everything she does. She’s the master of her craft – and that’s her priority – her craft. She is just astonishing."
Hudgens also speaks about her film ‘Spring Breakers’, saying, “I’ve never been on spring break, I’ve never gone to college or had this group of girlfriends to go away with. I became very, very close with these girls. We had such an amazing experience together; it felt like it was our own little spring break. We allowed ourselves to let loose and push each other and see how far we could take it."
She also talks about one of her other film projects, ‘Gimme Shelter’, and says, “I had to chop off all my hair and live in a pregnant woman’s shelter for about two weeks before we even started filming to get me in my headspace. It was a bit of a shock. It’s a world that I’ve never had a chance of looking into, let alone be a part of, and I remember calling my mom on the first night, and I was like "Mom, what have I gotten myself into?" It was a lot of fun after I got past those initial feelings of shock at the environment."
