"I have never liked 'partying,'" she tells Cosmo on Campus magazine. "I love dancing, but that's as far as it goes. It's tough because a lot of clubs are everything I loathe, especially in LA. They're always very ego-filled and people get up to mischief."
The 24-year-old actress adds, "It's just not a pure environment. I stay away from [drugs] because I know it's smart to steer clear."
As for her partner in crime and former High School Musical co-star Ashley Tisdale, Hudgens says her BFF is always advising her to be more "cautious." She tells Cosmo, "She thinks I'm too trusting. I think I'm fine the way I am, but she thinks I have a tendency to float around on a cloud, which I kind of do. She's quite protective -- she always has my back. If you're my best friend, I'll trust you with my life."
