Actress Vanessa has a thirst for knowledge

Vanessa Hudgens is eager to go back to school.

The actress – who shot to fame in 2003 as Gabriella Montez in High School Musical – believes she put more of a focus on acting than education when she was growing up.  

‘I got into acting young and I wasn’t as fascinated with learning as I am now,’ she explains.

‘The older I get, the more curious I become.’

There are a couple of subjects 24-year-old Vanessa would love to know more about. 

‘I’d like to study film or photography one day,’ she tells Cosmo On Campus.

Emma Watson – who was cast as Hermione Granger in Harry Potter aged 9 – seems to share a similar view to Vanessa.

She enrolled for a course at Brown University in 2009.
