When Vanessa Hudgens first stepped on the scene, we were all introduced to the 17-year-old as Gabriella Montez in the High School Musical franchise. Living inside the Disney bubble, Hudgens maintained her good girl persona for as long as she could until an unexpected, more than stripped down version of herself was leaked onto the Internet (its safe to say after that happened the bubble was popped). However, now it is time for the world to see the actress blossom creatively into the 24-year-old woman she has become in real life, all scandals aside.
In the divisive Harmony Korine film Spring Breakers, which hits theaters nationwide this weekend, the starlet is able to finally step out of her comfort zone and tap into wild side she's been oppressing for all these years. Clad in a wardrobe of mostly barely-there bikinis and the occasional cover-up, Hudgens embraces this new sense of freedom through Candy, the guns-, sex- and drug-obsessed college student who is just looking for some adventure on spring break.
If you can't get enough of the actress after you check out the film, we've compiled an collection of Hudgens' sexiest GIFs.
