No, Vanessa Hudgens isn't a drug addict - she's just playing one in the Hollywood Bowl production of the hit musical "Rent."

Hudgens took on the role of Mimi alongside fellow stars Wayne Brady and Nicole Scherzinger of the Pussycat Dolls.

The musical marked "How I Met Your Mother" star Neil Patrick Harris' stage directorial debut and played for three nights.

Vanessa has been furthering herself from her clean-cut Disney image after starring in the "High School Musical" movies and is now looking toward starring in more 'adult' roles. She's set to star in "300" director Zack Snyder's latest effort, "Sucker Punch," as a foul-mouthed prostitute. The film is a violent adaptation of "Alice in Wonderland" and is set to arrive in theaters in March 2011.
