There’s no doubt Vanessa Hudgens has had a ton of fan encounters throughout her time in the spotlight, but there is one meet-up in particular that did not go very smoothly. The 30-year-old High School Musical legend stopped by The Late Late Show with James Corden on Thursday — and during her interview with the television host, she admitted that it’s not always passionate fans who cross the line. Rather, she’s had some issues with the parents of fans!
“Parents will do anything for their kids, right?” the Second Act actress said. “So I remember, one time in particular, I was running to my gate and the airport, literally running, and this woman was like, ‘Oh my God, my daughter loves you!’ And I was like, ‘Thank you!'”
What seemed like a simple exchange actually took a turn for the worst when Vanessa told the woman she didn’t have time to stop for a picture.
The Princess Switch leading lady continued, “And she’s like, ‘I need a picture!’ And I was like, ‘I really can’t right now, I’m trying to get to my gate — and she’s like, ‘Come on! You owe this to me!’ And I was like, ‘I don’t owe you anything.’ And then she goes, ‘You’re a b–ch!’ I was like, ‘I’m sorry?'”
Hold up, she said what?! While everyone loves a good photo opportunity with a star from time to time, you can’t blame a girl for just trying to make her flight! Not cool, not cool.
Vanessa’s best friend and HSM costar Ashley Tisdale recently admitted that in the peak of their Disney Channel fame, the girls would actually dress up in disguises on tour.
The 33-year-old “Voices In My Head” singer told iHeart Radio, “When we were doing the tour of High School Musical, we were playing these humongous venues and we would just get tired of craft service or what we had. So we really wanted like the junk food in the venue and so it would be like … these venues were like I think 20,000 people, and so we would put these wigs on.”
LOL, let us all just take a moment to picture V and Ash casually strolling through crowds of fans unnoticed, all thanks to throwing on a wig — major Hannah Montana vibes.
“And I even got to the point where I think Corbin Bleu‘s dad was just getting tons of people coming up to him because they recognized his dad. And I went up to him and I was like I’m a huge fan! And he saw it was me and knew not to say anything,” she continued. “But yeah, we just used to wear these wigs and like go into the venue and nobody even knew it was us so it was pretty cool.”
Well, it looks like High School Musical truly brings out the passion in people!
