Vanessa Hudgens always carries a Taser. The "High School Musical" actress is so afraid she could be attacked she can't bear to be parted from her stun gun, a weapon that uses an electrical current to disrupt muscle control.
The 20-year-old beauty said: "I keep it for self-defence. I'm moving into a house by myself, and it's scary."
Last year, Vanessa was left terrified after a man in his 40s lunged at her and cut her face.
She said: "There was a guy who was walking down a street in London and I think he was a little drunk. He was blocking the door so my bodyguard had to push him aside."
"I got hit in the face. I looked in the mirror and got a huge scratch and I was bleeding."
Vanessa, who is dating her "High School Musical" co-star Zac Efron, also revealed she doesn't like wearing make-up and prefers to rely on her natural good looks.
She told Self magazine: "Sometimes I feel prettier without make-up. I take it off and I'm like, 'Oh, there I am!'"
