Eyebrows and wild hair and bad makeup, oh my!

Vanessa Hudgens covers the new issue of Paper mag and the 24-year-old starlet looks more like Joan Jett than K. Stew did in The Runaways!

Not only does she strike some ahem, interesting poses, but Nessa chats about her transition into edgier film roles, specifically Spring Breakers. “It’s always been hard for actors to cross that bridge but honestly, you have to hold out and do what you think is right for yourself," she says. "But I also think it is about finding someone who truly believes in you. Harmony took a really big jump in hiring me and Selena and Ashley.”

On her upcoming flick Frozen Ground, in which she plays a hooker, she says, “Ever since I was young, I wanted to play really heavy and intense roles and really push myself in a dramatic direction. So I was like, ‘A prostitute! I can play a prostitute! This is going to be exciting.’"
