We all know Vanessa works hard as an actress and spends months promoting her films, but sunbathing on the beach and chilling by the pool is a pretty good perk of the job!

Vanessa was in Brazil to appear in a shoot for Brazilian magazine Caras and was photographed looking all summery in her bikini, cowboy hat and chunky jewellery.

 

Vanessa talks about High School Musical, skimpy Brazilian bikinis and her fave sport - shopping!

Watch this cool behind-the-scenes clip...

Ahhh, we wish we could hang out with 'Nessa on the beach, but do you rate her beachy cowboy look?
