Vanessa Hudgens on her James Franco sex scene: ‘I never want to do it again’

Vanessa Hudgens

Vanessa Hudgens covers the December issue of Glow magazine with a highly underwhelming cover. The styling here is awful, and it seems like this look has been done so many times before and — honestly, this dates me — truly belongs on a 1987 cover of YM magazine. Nothing against Vanessa either, for this cover isn’t her fault at all aside from a faint hint of duck lips. The other photos in the shoot aren’t as bad, but there’s not really noteworthy either. Mostly, Vanessa seems like she’s dancing in a white lace and feathered cutout dress. Her hair looks sexy and playful here.

Now the interview is slightly more interesting because Vanessa talks about her recent experience filming Spring Breakers, in which she plays one of a group of good girls gone bad who end up hooking up with a drug dealer played by James Franco as K-Fed. In the movie, Vanessa’s character has a threesome in a swimming pool with Ashley Benson and James Franco, and Vanessa didn’t enjoy the experience at all. Here are some excerpts from the interview:

On her sex scene with James Franco: “It was very nerve-racking for me. I told my agent that I never want to do it ever again.”

On gaining 15 pounds for Gimme Shelter: “With so many actresses who want the exact same role, you’ve got to stand out and be different and not let anybody tell you no.”

On her fitness regime: “I spin, I do yoga, I dance a lot. I’ll go hike. Honestly, anything that sounds like fun.”

Let’s be honest here — the uncomfortable sex scene was probably Franco’s fault because he tried to elevate it into high art. Or maybe I just like to blame him for almost anything because he’s such a smug douche. In related news, James Franco would like the world to know that he did not approve of Skyfall because the movie literally put him to sleep. Page Six says that he and Ashley Benson (who are indeed dating) were spotted snoozing through the latest James Bond flick. I guess Bond just isn’t intellectual enough for an amazing artiste like James Franco.

By the way, remember these photos from Interview magazine’s Spring Breakers feature? I would think that a sex scene (even with James Franco) would be the least of Vanessa’s concerns while making this movie.

    I know this isn’t really the take-away here, but I feel bad for the unnamed fourth girl in the movie that no one cared about.

    • thebutlerdidit says:

      You shouldn’t. She’s the director’s wife, a crap actress, & demanded more & more lines taken from the others, for herself. I don’t remember the age diff between Harmony Korine & hubby, but it’s pretty big, & considered the only reason she married him, was because her career wasn’t going anywhere.

    • andrea says:

      Oh, don’t. I think you should probably be asking what she’s doing in that cast to begin with. The rumor is that she’s there because her husband (it’s a weird marriage) put her in the movie. She was supposed to have more lines (and pretty much star in the movie) but she just couldn’t cut it, so other girls kept getting added to the cast until the movie finally turned into something saleable.

    • PrettyTarheel says:

      Age difference is 13 years-substantial, but not to the point that you have to question motives.

    Oh god the bottom pic. It’s out of context for me … but jesus.

  3. Sisi says:

    omg, three weeks ago I had my hair cut just like this

    I have Vanessa Hudgens hair…

  4. Summer says:

    That’s a fantastic dress in the second pic. What is it?

  5. Lb says:

    How does someone fall asleep during Skyfall?

  6. Barrett says:

    Franco seems to fall asleep everywhere. NYU classes. Action flicks. Probably because his purported image of super student, actor, artist catches up to him.

  7. Esmom says:

    I’m thinking the sex scene was traumatic because she had to be in such close proximity to Franco…I’d think his breath alone is the stuff of nightmares.

  8. Esmom says:

    I feel like someone needs to cover up Selena and get her out of that last shot. She’s too wholesome for that, isn’t she?

  9. Mica says:

    Vanessa looks trashy with blonde hair.

  10. normades says:

    I don’t know what happened but I really like Vanessa now. Love her new hair too.

  11. Steph says:

    She really can’t help herself with the duck lips, can she? Girl are you sleepy? Cuz your whole look is tired. Its been like, what? 6 years? We’re over the duck lips! Stop. Doing. That. Shit.

  12. Sapphire says:

    HATE her shoes. I actually like this girl.

  13. SaftD says:

    There was a blind awhile a go that said an actress was really uncomfortable doing a sex scene with an actor who was a total douche and made the experience horrible for her. I can’t remember the most of if but I remember some bringing up Hudgens and Franco. Obviously gossip so take that as you will.

    James Franco is like the opposite of sex. He’s so undesirable, and I like bad boys (think classic James Spader: Keys to Tulsa; Crash).
