Vanessa Hudgens at a press conference for “Gimme Shelter” on Jan. 21, 2014 | Paula Schwartz Photo From last year’s “Spring Breakers,” to star turns in “Machete Kills” and “The Frozen Crowd,” Vanessa Hudgens continues to distance herself from her clean-cut Disney image with her latest role as a homeless, pregnant teen (“Apple” Bailey) in the gritty drama, “Gimme Shelter.” The cast also features an unrecognizable Rosario Dawson (June Bailey) as Apple’s desperate crack-head mother. Brendan Fraser plays Apple’s father, a Wall Street broker – who didn’t know he had a daughter until she shows up on his doorstep – and who finally rejects her after she refuses to have an abortion. . . .
