'I'm a total gypsy bohemian!': Vanessa Hudgens releases her inner flower child in new hippie photo shoot
She's currently in the middle of a grueling press tour for her upcoming movie Spring Breakers.
But Vanessa Hudgens looks like she doesn't have a care in the world in a new bohemian photo shoot.
The 24-year-old actress is happy-go-lucky and sun-kissed as she channels a Seventies flower child in a spread in the April issue of Cosmopolitan magazine.

The High School Musical star dressed in floaty, skin-revealing outfits for the shoot, which was inspired by Coachella, an annual three-day music and arts festival in the California Desert.
The actress opened up about her love for the music festival, which draws big name performers like Madonna, The Killers and Jay-Z.
'The first time I went, I thought, "This is heaven." You just feel completely free. I’m going to go every single year until I die.'
Vanessa also admitted she's a free spirit at heart.
'I’m a total gypsy bohemian. If I could go back in time, I’d be front row for Janis Joplin at Woodstock!'
Wild child: The actress looked carefree in a midriff-baring top and tiny denim shorts
The brunette looks hippie chic in the photo spread in a series of midriff-baring tops, a flowing skirt, tiny shorts, and a crochet dress.
Her long dark hair is mostly worn tousled and loose, except in one snap where she's seen with a plate wrapped around her head.
The former Disney actress wears rings, bangles and dangling earrings, and at one point looks like a forest nymph with a crown of daisies placed atop her head.
Her makeup is fresh and natural for the most part, although the actress does up the glamour factor with scarlet red lips in one shot.
In love: Vanessa and her boyfriend Austin Butler, pictured in February, have been together for more than a year. He is also featured in Cosmopolitan's April issue, where he opens up about what he looks for in a girlfriend
Vanessa is currently dating The Carrie Diaries star Austin Butler.
The 21-year-old actor, who plays Carrie Bradshaw's first major crush in the CW show, also appears in the Cosmopolitan issue, where he chats about the qualities he looks for in a girlfriend.
'Someone who is selfless in nature and cares about others — that's such a huge thing for me,' said the star, who's been seeing Vanessa for more than a year.
'How someone treats a waiter or doorman can tell you so much about a person. And I'm attracted to someone who is a hard worker and is passionate about what they do.'
Busy schedule: Vanessa appeared on the El Hormiguero TV show in February with Selena Gomez in Spain to promote their new film Spring Breakers
Vanessa has just completed a whirlwind European promotional tour for her upcoming movie Spring Breakers, which follows the adventures of four college girls who land in jail after robbing a restaurant in order to fund their spring break vacation.
The foursome eventually find themselves bailed out by a drug and arms dealer who wants them to do some dirty work.
She is also set to co-star in Machete Kills with Danny Trejo and Mel Gibson, directed by Robert Rodriguez later this year.
