Vanessa Hudgens Literally Looks Homeless

If you are a pretty young starlet, how should you go about your reinvention as a Dramatic Actor?

Well, you could always try going the Hatha Way, absolving yourself of your Disneyness by turning up topless/naked in a “serious” drama (like Havoc, say). Choosing this tack, however, can backfire. It might make you seem easy.

You could establish your rep with a bio-pic—and I mean a serious one, not an Amy Fisher one. If you play your cards right, you might even earn an Oscar! Just like Reese Witherspoon did, for her role as June Carter Cash, or Sandra Bullock as Leigh Anne Tuohy, or Marion Cotillard as Édith Piaf.

(Please note that this tactic is a career risk that seldom works, least of all for historical characters in period pieces. Nobody watched The Other Boleyn Girl or Marie Antoinette, people.)

OR: Like Hilary Swank in Boys Don’t Cry and Charlize Theron in Monster, you could take the “ugly” route (AKA the Look Like a Dude School of Acting).

Yep. Vanessa Hudgens chose ugly.
