Everyone's buzzing about Vanessa Hudgens's new film "Gimme Shelter," and now the brunette beauty is opening up about her dramatic physical transformation for her role as Apple, a homeless 16-year-old mother-to-be who finds help at a shelter. In an interview with E! News, the 25-year-old star revealed that it was all about making herself look ugly.

The former Disney darling explained, "I put on 15 pounds, ate whatever I wanted. I'm not complaining. I cut off all my hair, which really set the tone. It was such a liberating thing and kind of reminded me, 'if I can do that, I can do this.' And then, I just kind of tried to make myself as ugly as possible, whether that was the way that I walked or my mannerisms or the tone of my voice."
