So the story goes that when Vanessa, Ashley and the others showed up in Florida to start filming Spring Breakers, director Harmony Korine was fairly disappointed. The gals had been working out and dieting to get into nice hardbodied shape for the flick, which would feature plenty of skin.
But Korine wanted his stars to be spilling some girl belly over the tops of their rolled down, unbuttoned shorts. So, on with the cheeseburger and milkshake diet to get the girls into the doughy shape Korine had envisioned. And by the time they got to the end of the shooting schedule, the actresses -- even uber slender Selena Gomez, were sporting plenty of soft belly and full behinds for the promo shots:
Especially Vanessa Hudgens who was so delighfully soft and cuddly looking that several snarky celeb bloggers began referring to her as Vanessa Pudgens:
But someone's been hittin' the gym lately, because over the weekend, Vanessa turned up on a yacht in Italy looking fit as can be:
Just goes to show what a young actress can accomplish, body-wise, if she puts her mind and a little effort into it. Plus, I'm loving those body chains . . . very sexy :-)
