Why Vanessa Hudgens went make up free for photo shoot. American actress and singer, Vanessa Hudgens has revealed that posing make-up free for PEOPLE’s Beautiful Issue 2019 “exposed” her in a “real and honest way”.
The ‘High School Musical’ star who has her own fashion fitness collection took the brave step of showing off her natural complexion in the People magazine’s annual special issue as she posed make-up free for the shoot with the 30-year old star admitting it was liberating to show her fans her natural look.
Talking to PEOPLE TV, the Californian born star said : “I love doing it, I mean I feel like nowadays everyone’s exposed to a heightened version of people they’re following, whether that be on Instagram, in films or TV. “No one really wakes up looking the way that you see them, so I think it’s really important for people to see who you truly are, without the facade, and it’s just a nice way to connect and just feel exposed in a very honest and real way.”
And the “Thirteen’ actress opened up about having a “better grasp” on who she is since turning 30, and admitted that although she is “constantly learning” about herself, she has “no problems”
speaking her mind. Vanessa also added: “A lot now is different about me. In my 20s I learned so much about myself and I went through a whole whirlwind of emotions, it’s a rollercoaster being in your 20s! “But now, at 30, I feel like I have a better grasp on who I am, and I know that I am constantly learning but I have no problems with speaking my mind, which has been the biggest enlightenment thus far of 30.”
Back in September 2007, intimate photos of Vanessa posing in her lingerie were leaked online with the star revealing they were taken in private and were not for public viewing. She went on to release a statement apologising to her and that she was embarrassed over the situation.
