Vanessa Hudgens does her best to erase High School Musical from our collective memory with her new role as pregnant, homeless teen Apple Bailey in Gimme Shelter. It’s a mostly uplifting story, but the darkest scenes in the film belong to Rosario Dawson as Apple’s mom, and the moments the pair are onscreen together are intense and electric.
The two play mother and daughter, share a manager and have lead surprisingly parallel careers, so we wanted to test out each actress’ knowledge about the other. We quizzed the pair during a recent interview in Los Angeles. Just how well do they know the other? Watch and learn.
Gimme Shelter opens in theaters on January 24.
