Vanessa Hudgens might be taking on the role of Gigi on Broadway, but she's no doe-eyed
waif. Although she's only 26 years old, she's learned a whole lot about life
and love since she first hooked up with her High
School Musical
co-star Zac Efron in 2005. And, we're not even talking about
that scene in Spring Breakers.

Hudgens told The New York Times she learned a lot about herself from dating a Teen Beat-style heartthrob.   

"I went through a phase when I was really mean because
I was so fed up. Girls were running after him, and I was giving them death
stares. Then I realized that's not what that's about. 'Spread the love, be a
good person, they support you, be nice.'"

So far, her new outlook has worked. Not only is she about to
rock Broadway, but she's also got a new horror/comedy coming out this fall
called Kitchen Sink, and she's taking
on the role of Rizzo in an upcoming production of Grease for Fox. Plus, her newish beau Austin Butler is nothing to
sniff at. (People)
