Vanessa Hudgens wants to have it all.
The 24-year-old brunette beauty stuns on the October cover of Marie Claire magazine, in which she opens about her future hopes and dreams, her early struggles in the Hollywood biz and living her life in the public eye.
"Money was a big thing. My parents drove me up to L.A., which cost a lot because of gas, and took out loans so that we could move from location to location to be close to L.A.," the erstwhile Disney star says of the initial obstacles in her career before she made it big as a High School Musical star. "The family definitely struggled. They were very supportive of me. They gave up a lot so that I could get to where I am."
