Vaness Hudgens Teams up With Brendan Fraser
Saturday April 30, 2011
VANESSA Hudgens is teaming up with Brendan Fraser for new movie Gimme Shelter!
The indie drama — written and directed by Ron Krauss — centers on a pregnant, homeless teen, to be played by Hudgens, who flees her abusive mother and seeks out her biological father. He first takes her in but then throws her out when she refuses to abort her child. Fraser is the girl’s dad, who fathered her as a result of a youthful fling.
Filming begins at the end of May in Connecticut.
Meanwhile, Vanessa — who split from her High School Musical costar Zac Efron in December after dating him for five years and has most recently been linked to Josh Hutcherson — has insisted she’s “embracing” being single.
“No,” Vanessa said when asked if she’s looking for a relationship. “I’m really happy embracing this moment. Right now I feel so happy and I have so much going on, I don’t necessarily need a guy.
“Whether I’m single or not, this is an amazing time in my life. I’m a young woman and I’m exploring who I am.”
However, the Beastly star would like to fall in love again — but thinks it is more likely to happen if she doesn’t try to find her ‘Mr. Right’.
“Love comes when you’re not looking, so I’ve decided I’m not going to look!” she said.
When the pretty brunette does find another man, she hopes he’ll have a good sense of humor and will be happy to join her on the dancefloor.
“Someone who doesn’t take himself too seriously, because I don’t!” Hudgens said of her dream guy. “A guy who makes the best out of every situation, is positive and a good dancer, because I need someone who will dance with me.”
