The ‘High School Musical’ star proves she’s all grown up as she takes on the role of Mimi in the Neil Patrick Harris directed version of ‘RENT!’

It turns out Vanessa Hudgens may not have to worry about boyfriend Zac Efron getting lap dances from strippers, she is proving she has some pretty sexy moves herself! Vanessa made her stage debut last night at the Hollywood Bowl where she is playing Mimi in the Neil Patrick Harris directed version of RENT alongside costars such as Nicole Scherzinger, Wayne Brady, and Aaron Tveit. The role, of an HIV positive exotic dancer, is definitely a huge departure for the Disney starlet!

Vanessa’s debut comes just a week after we saw the trailer for her newest film, Sucker Punch, where she is channeling Angelina Jolie in her role as a super sexy assassin. As for her performance last night, boyfriend Zac was in the audience to catch all of the sexy dancing and , unfortunately for him, one super steamy love scene!

What do you think about Vanessa’s new adult role? Check out her performance below!
