Vanessa Hudgens, 32, looked unstoppable as she landed the cover of SHAPE’s November issue.
Looking like she was in her happy place, Vanessa wore a low-cut dark blue denim one-piece swimsuit with underwire cups and clasps down the front. She lounged by the pool in the bathing suit, showing off her toned legs.
“At my fittest, I feel unstoppable. You think, ‘there’s no way I can get through 30 reps.’ But then you do, and you remind yourself that you can do anything you set your mind to. Those little victories should always be celebrated. That’s what contributes joy and happiness and power and strength to your life,” Vanessa revealed.
Vanessa admitted that it took her a while to accept her body. “Over the past couple of years, I’ve come into my own,” she said. “When you’re fully accepting of who you are, and you stop trying to suppress pieces of yourself, you can conquer the world.”
She continued, “I love how silly I am. I love how excitable I am. And I love that I’m finally at a place where I can access those things. Even the quirky stuff that might have been shut down by other people in the past, like being ridiculous with my friends, are things I’m now allowing to thrive. For some people, I’m way too much. But I love who I am, and there’s such power in that.”
The actress went on to talk about her state of contentment, “Where I am now is better than I could have dreamed of,” she revealed. “My relationship with myself is something I value deeply, even if things don’t always go the way I expected. For instance, my mom got married at 25, so I always thought I was going to be married at 25.”
Vanessa Hudgens also revealed that she is “in an amazing and healthy relationship” and that she is “very grateful every day for where I am in this moment of my life.”
