She's more attracted to them...
In an interview with Marie Claire, Vanessa Hudgens talked about her attraction to darker and more risqué move roles. Here are highlights:
On her attraction to risqué roles: "I love finding things that scare me and doing them. That's how you grow. At maybe 14, I got my first guest-starring spot on a crime show [Robbery Homicide Division]. In it, my father got shot in front of me, and I was crying and freaking out. I loved it. I was like, 'I want to play the really heavy parts.' It's so far from who I am. There's complete freedom within it. Things I've been doing lately, I'm super-proud of. So I don't really care if someone doesn't like it, because I love it."
On life as a celebrity: "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."
Her outlook on life: "You have a choice whether you want to be happy or not. I choose to be happy. And it's been working out pretty well. I mean, I'm here in Bali, sitting on a boat. Things can't get any better."
