Disney star Ashley Tisdale sheds her innocent image with new naked spread

Ashley Tisdale has stripped off for a nude photo shoot – because she wants everyone to see she’s all grown-up.

The sexy High School Musical actress kneels on a bed in the naked black and white picture, showing off a ‘believe’ tattoo that runs down her back.

‘I’m 25, almost 26, but people think of me as much younger because I look young,’ says Ashley.

‘Being in this shoot was me saying: “I’m not just the young girl everybody thinks I am. I’m actually a woman.”‘

But Ashley admits she brought her mum Lisa, 54, along to the nude shoot for support. 

‘I’ve always wanted to be sure my parents approve of what I do,’ she tells Allure magazine.

‘Even with my tattoos, my mum went with me. The ‘believe’ tattoo is because my mum always told me to believe.’
