Vanessa Hudgens is gearing up for the release of Beastly (finally!) The date has been delayed, moved and pushed around the calendar so much it’s a wonder there is still interest in it.
Costarring with Alex Pettyfer, Mary Kate Olsen and Neil Patrick Harris (who later directed her at the Hollywood Bowl in a performance of Rent,) Hudgens spoke to ComingSoon about how she chose Beastly, her character Lindy and doing stunts while afraid of heights:
On what attracted her to the role: “It was just a script that was in the pile, you know, and I read it, and I thought that it was really interesting. I had a meeting with them, and I remember running in, and I was late and I felt horrible, and we just had a great conversation. It was me, Susan the producer and Daniel the director, and we just sat and talked about the project. Just hearing Daniel’s ambitions, what he wanted to do, how he wanted to shoot it, how he wanted to develop the characters. It just seemed like the right next choice.”
On who Lindy is and how she’s different: “It’s a whole lot different than me. I’m very outgoing and confident and when it comes to Lindy, she’s a bit more all over the place. She’s kind of the person that has a bunch of word vomit. She’ll say something and then instantly start to retract it, yet she can’t stop talking about it. She’s just kind of this neurotic character that’s just a lot of fun. There’s much more of a deeper undertone to the way I speak in it, because I have an extremely high voice.”
On her stunt work: “I’ve had one stunt already, which was quite frightening ’cause I’m afraid of heights, and I had to climb up a ladder, hold onto something upside down, they rigged me and I was literally hanging upside down on a pole, and then they would let the latch go, and they’d count “3,2,1″ and then I’d let go and fall into Alex’s arms.”
The movie hits theaters March 4th.
