Vanessa Hudgens Covers Shape April 2011: "My Fingers Were Permanently Stained Orange From Cheetos."

Vanessa Hudgens Covers Shape: "I Was So Unhealthy."

Posing in a pink bikini, actress Vanessa Hudgens looks ab-tastic on Shape magazine's April cover. In the issue, the star opens up about her favorite workouts (kickboxing, Pilates, and spinning) and gets real about her 2007 fast-food addiction. Four years later, Vanessa is eating healthy and kicking major butt in the action-packed Sucker Punch (out in theaters on March 25), a role she had to get in major shape for. Check out what else Vanessa had to say:

  • On her past fast-food addiction: "I was so unhealthy. I used to go to Cold Stone Creamery, get a tub of Butterfinger ice cream and eat it all before bedtime. And my fingers were permanently stained orange from Cheetos . . . I lived on Hot Pockets and never touched vegetables; I needed to do something about my diet."
  • On her now love of healthy eating: "It's [spinach salad with grilled chicken or salmon, almonds, feta, truffle oil, and Himalayan sea salt] my favorite meal . . . I like egg white omelets with veggies or oatmeal with almonds and fruit . . . When you're putting good stuff into your body, you feel so much better."
  • On the benefits of working out: "Exercise is amazing from the inside out. I feel so alive and have more energy."

  • On getting in shape for Sucker Punch: "I knew it was going to be hard but I didn't know how hard. In the beginning I could dead lift 135 pounds. By the end, I lifted 180 pounds. I was a monster."
  • On the pros of having a workout partner: "I wouldn't have been able to do it [get in shape for Sucker Punch] if it weren't for the other girls. It's because of them that I got so strong . . .  Having someone to go to classes with makes you want to do your best, not just for yourself but for the other person too."

So good to hear that she kicked her junk-food habit! I kicked mine too, I relapse from time to time but I hope others will be inspired by this to do the same.
