Gather is reporting that Vanessa Hudgens, once known for her demure Disney star status, is now dressing up in provocative fashion to draw attention and allow her more flexibility in her roles. And could one of her roles be that of Anastasia Steele in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey adaptation? It looks like some people, including fans and people in the industry alike, are interested to see her audition for the role and think that she could bring some spark to the character.
Of course, there has been no word yet from Hudgens camp about this role, but since Zac Efron has already been rumored for the role of leading man Christian Grey, it would almost be a reunion of High School Musical – except with bondage and sex.
Both Hudgens and Efron have been trying very hard to change their image after their Disney careers – Efron with more adult fare such as ‘Paperboy’, and Hudgens with a similar strategy – she looked drastically different from her Disney days in ‘Sucker Punch’, and in the upcoming ‘Frozen Ground’ and ‘Machete Kills’. It would be interesting to see how fans respond to the casting choice, but they seem on board for pretty much any actress that fits the physical description.
