Ashley Tisdale made her name singing and dancing on the Disney Channel, but like other young Mickey Mouse prodigies, she has been working to shed her good girl image. Tisdale's latest movie was Scary Movie 5, costarring beloved duo Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan

She's also fronting for Cracker Jack, which is probably a decent move on their part because who even knew they still made that stuff. In the process of said promotion, Tisdale gave the scoop on her sexy photo shoots, most recently her topless Maxim cover.

"I just want to have fun. I'm just someone who is like, you've got to go for it," she said at the Cracker Jack'd (that's right) event. "When I get in front of the camera, I'm always pretty comfortable, so I never freak out."

Tisdale shot her Maxim cover in sunny Malibu—but during the winter, and when she had bronchitis. Still, she was happy to be in a swimsuit on the beach, instead of in lingerie in a studio. "My mom was actually there on set and she said it was great. What I like about it is it represents who I am," she said. "For me, I'm a real big beach person, and I wasn't in lingerie like they usually do. I was in a bathing suit, so I felt like it represented me really well."

Hey, whatever gets the job done.
