Vanessa Hudgens has admitted that she was “freaked out” by co-star Alex Pettyfer’s appearance in their new movie Beastly.
The High School Musical star appears alongside Pettyfer in the Manhattan-based high school retelling of classic fairytale Beauty And The Beast.
Speaking to MTV News, she said: “It was crazy, I saw the picture [of his 'Beast' make-up] for like a millisecond and then I was like, ‘Oh no, I can’t look!’
“I waited until I got to see him in person and it moved me in a really weird and peculiar way. It’s so mind blowing the prosthetics they’ve done on him. He changes as a complete person. I was freaked out, honestly.”
Beastly tells the story of a transfer student (Mary-Kate Olsen) who curses a handsome boy (Pettyfer) so that his appearance becomes hideously disfigured. Hudgens plays a beautiful girl who is sent to live with his family.
