Goodbye Disney and hello to feeling like a ‘sexpot.’ All Vanessa needs to feel confident — her sexy boyfriend Zac and a tight fitting pair of jeans!

Actress Vanessa Hudgens is no longer the 18-year-old girl we remember from the first High School Musical. She’s now 21 and all grown up! And with her age comes a new mentality: “I’m going to be doing movies kids can’t watch,” Vanessa admits in her cover interview for the August 2010 Issue of Glamour magazine. “When I am around kids and they come up to me, of course I am going to act a certain way, but at the end of the day, I’m doing this for myself!”

“Before High School Musical, I wanted to be a nitty-gritty actress,” Vanessa admits. “And High School Musical came along and I was like, ‘Oh my God, fun!’ But, the more we did it, the more prude I became.”

“When I was younger, I used to be super, super shy,” Vanessa explains. But, “I still find myself being scared of things. Going to events gives me such anxiety. I get hot flashes! I can’t breathe, and I get claustrophobic!”

“It’s a very odd business,” she confesses. “I do it because I love acting, but I don’t know if I’ll ever get used to it.”

To fix her anxiety issues, Vanessa says: “I want to try doing sportier things, kite surfing and paddle surfing — I think it would give me that extra confidence.”

But, until Vanessa gets over her “issues,” she does have her sexy boyfriend Zac Efron, 22, by her side to help her feel confident enough to face her fears. “We got lucky because we started off together, so I think people like us because they fell in love with our characters,” Vanessa says of meeting Zac on the set of High School Musical. “Right off the bat, we had a connection. I think everybody could see it. When we had our audition, they paired us together. And HE WAS ADORABLE!”

And, when she wants to feel ultra confident, Vanessa just pulls on a pair of jeans. “If your jeans hug you the right way, you feel like a sexpot,” Vanessa gushes. “And they get better with age!”
