is still haunted by the naked photos that leaked years ago.
In a new interview with Paper magazine
, Vanessa says of the scandal, "That was by far the worst moment of my career."
And while Vanessa has been keeping out trouble lately in real life, that's not the case for her character in Spring Breakers.
In the movie, Vanessa and her costars Selena Gomez
and Ashley Benson
strip down, do drugs and threaten James Franco with a gun!
Of her much more mature recent roles, the former High School Musical
starlet says, "It's always been hard for actors to cross that bridge but honestly, you have to hold out and do what you think is right for yourself. But I also think it is about finding someone who truly believes in you. Harmony [Korine, the director] took a really big jump in hiring me and Selena and Ashley."
Are you excited to see a new side of Vanessa, Selena and Ashley in their new movie?
