HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL star VANESSA HUDGENS hates being away from home during filming - because she has to do her own chores. The 18-year-old - who is currently dating co-star Zac Efron - relies heavily on her mother to wash and iron her clothes and resents having to do it while away for work. She says, "Being out there by myself made me realise how much I love being at home. Being independent is like so scary. Being out on my own and having to cook by myself and having to do my own laundry? I'm so used to my mom doing it for me. "I think I want to go home, invest in a place and maybe not move there quite yet."
