Vanessa Hudgens Lived in Homeless Shelter For Two Weeks

(Rachael Ray Show)

Vanessa Hudgens really gave her all in preparing for her upcoming movie, Gimme Shelter.

In addition to personally chopping off her hair for her role as a homeless, pregnant teenager, Hudgens says she temporarily stayed in a shelter to better understand her character’s struggle.

The High School Musical star talked about the movie on The “Rachael Ray Show” on Friday, telling the host, ”I actually went and stayed in a shelter for two weeks before I started filming.”

“I lived there with all the girls, with all the kids, so I think that it’s really interesting because you find so much more about yourself,” added Hudgens.

Hudgens’ much lighter film, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, hits theaters today.

Gossip Cop will have video of the interview shortly.
