15 Times Disney Channel Stars Threw Shade At the Network
You probably remember her as the bratty cheerleader from A.N.T. Farm, but the actress was more than happy to break free of Disney’s grasp when that show ended. She mentioned that she wanted to tell more realistic stories about troubled girls, which she could never do at Disney.
Stefanie explained to J-14: “It was hard being a preteen and having to sugarcoat everything all the time. That’s one of the hardest things, not being able to express myself in a certain way or being stuck having to promote something or say something you don’t believe in. It’s kind of hard after a while when you are feeling things and having a rough time in your personal life and you can’t express your emotions through your work.”
It may have been his breakthrough role, but Zac isn’t exactly proud of his Disney Channel roots. While on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he playfully suggested that High School Musical wasn’t even worth watching. And in another interview, he shared that he sometimes wants to beat his old character up.
He said in Men’s Fitness: “I step back and look at myself and I still want to kick that guy’s *ss sometimes. Like, f*ck that guy. He’s done some kind of cool things with some cool people — he did that one thing [Neighbors] that was funny — but, I mean, he’s still just that f*cking kid from [High School Musical].” SMH.
