Vanessa Hudgens debuted a shocking makeunder in photos taken on the set of her new movie, "Gimme Shelter" this week.
Hudgens was photographed wearing a short wig, a neck tattoo and piercings on her lip and nose while shooting in Newark, New Jersey. The slender actress finished the look with baggy jeans and a shapeless T-shirt ( See a photo).
In the movie, the 22-year-old actress plays a pregnant teenager who leaves her abusive mother's home to look for her biological father (Brendan Fraser) who works on Wall Street and urges her to get an abortion. When she refuses, she is forced to live on the streets. The film also stars Rosario Dawson.
"I have been so stupidly busy working on 'Gimme Shelter.' I'm so excited and proud of the work I've been doing and let me tell you, you all are going to be SHOCKED with how I look in this movie," Hudgens wrote on her official Facebook page. "It's crazy sauce... only one more week of shooting till I'm done!"
Hudgens recently appeared in Candie's apparel's new fall 2011 ad campaign, looking more like herself. See photos of the campaign.
In March, the actress was romantically linked to "The Kids Are All Right" actor Josh Hutcherson. The two will appear in the upcoming film "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island," which is slated for release on September 23 and also stars Kristin Davis of "Sex and the City" and Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson.
