(Srsly, what was with that sniffling??)
Sounds like a good friend to have in Hollywood!
Even though Vanessa might be a young thing, it sounds like she's got the whole followed by photogs thing all figured out. But she isn't keeping that knowledge to herself because she's passing it on to one of her newest besties, Selenita!
"She was very protective. I was distracted [by photographers during the filming of Spring Breakers], and she took me aside and talked to me about who I am and what I represent. I felt safer after that."
But that paparazzi voo doo on others isn't all Vanessa can do! She's also used her mind tricks on herself.
And it seems she's so good with her mental game that she no longer cares about the paparazzi at all - something she's clearly trying to pass on to Selena. Vanessa revealed:
"A sense of knowing I'm a part of something bigger than myself has allowed me to enjoy life more. And not worry about the little things. Like paparazzi."
With her boho chic style, we totes believe Vanessa is probably on her way to being one with the world.
But we've got to admit, as much as she covers her face from the pap cameras, we're guessing she does get a leeettle bothered by them!
