    Vanessa Covers Shape The "Beastly" star tells Shape magazine about her "disgusting" past eating habits and how she now aims for healthier choices. On previous food choices... “I was so unhealthy... I used to go to Cold Stone Creamery,  get a tub of Butterfinger ice cream, and eat it all before bedtime. And my fingers were permanently stained orange from Cheetos... I lived on Hot Pockets and never touched vegetables; I needed to do something about my diet.”   On her current diet... “[For breakfast] I like egg white omelets with veggies, or oatmeal with almonds and fruit... When you’re putting good stuff into your body, you feel so much better.”  Read the full article here.

    Vanessa Covers Shape On her four year relationship with Zac Efron... “We grew up together... It was nice to have someone to share all of those experiences with... The relationship kept me grounded, and because I was with someone who knew me so well, I didn’t need to try to be someone I’m not.””  On why it ultimately didn't work... “Long-distance relationships are hard no matter what... When you don’t have face-to-face time, it’s just different. Having an iPhone helped, but it wasn’t the same.”  On future plans... “I hope by the time I’m 30 to have  a husband and maybe a baby. I love children. They’re so much fun, and I would have a blast spoiling them!” Read the full article here.
