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!!!

    I don't believe this BS. The way she described her "experience" was more like she stayed at a "celebrity homeless shelter".

    I'm eager to see "Gimme Shelter." Sounds like a good movie. Love that Vanessa is so dedicated to her craft and focused on her career. Plus, I think she's got the most beautiful face in Hollywood. Sexy woman.

    This girl sounds like a spoiled brat that has no idea what being homeless is like. Oh yes, two weeks in a homeless shelter really allows you to "discover yourself". Dumbass.

    did she take any pictures? lol!

    i hate how she gets all these movie roles, yet she's not that much of an actress.

    guess all you need to do is get naked

    She's doing exactly what other actors do for a role (two weeks immersed in studying her character). Did you expect her to live in a homeless shelter for a year? The point is you don't have to BE homeless to play the role of a homeless person. You don't have to BE a killer or a hooker or a stripper to play one.
