Vanessa Hudgens Undergoes Radical Transformation as Homeless Teen in Gimme Shelter Trailer — WATCH!

Truth rating: 10

By Shari Weiss



Vanessa Hudgens plays a battered homeless teen in Gimme Shelter.


Based on a true story, the upcoming film showcases Hudgens’ character Apple escaping her drug-addicted prostitute mom (Rosario Dawson), seeking help from the wealthy father who abandoned her (Brendan Fraser), and coping with an unexpected pregnancy as she tries to fit into a foster home.

It’s a role unlike Hudgens as ever played before, and as Gossip Cop previously reported, she actually lived in a homeless shelter for two weeks to prepare for the project.

Hudgens debuted the trailer on Facebook on Tuesday, with the movie set to hit theaters January 24.
