High School Musical actress Vanessa Hudgens has revealed the extent of the fan obsession that her ex boyfriend, and High School Musical co star, Zac Efron had to endure. Vanessa admitted that she understood that the fans were obsessed with the character from the movie but that Zac would often come away from crazed fans with war wounds.
Hudgens explained, “Girls would claw at Zac and, because they were teenagers with a lot of energy, they would chase for a long time. He had some crazy incidents when girls would try to rip his clothes off and he’d leave with claw marks all over him and his clothing in pieces. They were obsessed with the character and who they wanted to see, so I was like, “Go for it!” I know who he actually is inside.” Vanessa then discussed how she used to have to hide from paparazzi.
She added, “That was the s****iest time ever…it was horrible. I just remember hiding out with my mum and sister and there’d be 30 paparazzi sitting outside the house being loud and obnoxious. It wasn’t a good time, but I took it for what it was and moved on.” Vanessa Hudgens can currently be seen on the big screen in the movie Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.
