Talk about method acting!
Usually glitzy and glammy Vanessa Hudgens chatted up Rachael Ray about her stint in a homeless shelter for her upcoming flick, Gimme Shelter.
Nessa plays a pregnant homeless teen and she took a trip to the homeless shelter in Jersey the film is based on and stayed for two weeks!
The actress recounts her experience with the unfortunate:
For Gimme Shelter, my character ends up at this pregnant, homeless teen shelter that's actually ran in New Jersey by a woman and I actually went and stayed in the shelter for two weeks before I started filming, so I mean like, 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.
Now that's definitely a full time committment to your work!
Nessa also commented that she and Rosario Dawson look "super messed up" for the film.
We're super excited to see how this film turns out. It sounds uhMAZing!!!
