Vanessa Hudgens in Cosmo On Campus Fall 2013:

With her new film “Machete Kills” slated to hit theaters Friday (October 11), Vanessa Hudgens soaks up the spotlight by covering Cosmo On Campus magazine”s Fall 2013 issue.

The former “High School Musical” beauty sat down with the publication and chatted about her BFF Ashley Tisdale and her lack of interest in LA”s club scene.

Check out a few highlights from Miss Hudgens” interview below. For more, be sure to visit Cosmo On Campus!

On Ashley:
“Ashley always says she wants me to be more cautious. 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. She”s quite protective – she always has my back. Ashley and I have laughed and cried together over the years. She comes to me for relationship advice more than I go to her, though: I try to figure stuff out by myself.”

On her go-to cure for heartache:
“When a girlfriend is going through a breakup, you have to go out and dance. With your best friends, you”ve got to be there for them no matter what. I love taking my girlfriends away from their worries and enjoying life with them. 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.”

On her “drug free” lifestyle:
“I stay away from [drugs] because I know its smart to steer clear. I have never liked “partying.” I love dancing, but that”s as far as it goes. It”s tough because a lot of clubs are everything I loathe, especially in LA. They”re always very ego-filled and people get up to mischief. It”s just not a pure environment.”

On her love for college:
“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. I”d like to study film or photography one day.”
