No, the 90210 actress is not down and out, she's working on a her film, Sugar, where Shenae plays homeless skater girl.
Shenae really got into character on the Venice Boardwalk, making herself right at home on the ground where she begged for cash from passers-by.
Shenae's been shooting the indie film since late last year while on break from 90210.
The film is loosely based on the life of the director, Rotimi Rainwater, and will be released later this year.
