Vanessa Hudgens clears up some misconceptions in the latest issue of the UK’s Cosmo on Campus. “I have never liked ‘partying.’ I love dancing, but that’s as far as it goes,” says the actress.

Hudgens continues, “It’s tough because a lot of clubs are everything I loathe, especially in L.A. They’re always very ego-filled and people get up to mischief. It’s just not a pure environment.” The Machete Kills star also insists she stays “away” from drugs, “because I know it’s smart to steer clear,” but admits to indulging in alcohol.

“If there’s a problem, a bottle of wine goes a long way. It’s the same after a long week of filming — a glass of wine and a bit of chocolate makes me happy,” she says.

Hudgens also relies on her “quite protective” best friend, High School Musical co-star Ashley Tisdale to be by her side when things get tough. “Ashley always says she wants me to be more cautious,” confesses the starlet. “She thinks I’m too trusting. I think I’m fine the way I am, but she thinks I have a tendency to float around on a cloud, which I kind of do.”

One day, Hudgens just may float herself into a college setting. “I got into acting young and I wasn’t as fascinated with learning as I am now. The older I get, the more curious I become,” she tells the magazine. And what would be her major? “I’d like to study film or photography one day,” says Hudgens.
