High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens appeared on talk show Hot Ones to promote her newest movie Second Act, co-starring Jennifer Lopez and premiering on December 21. Hosted by Sean Evans, the show’s premise is to ask celebrities hard questions while they eat a variety of chicken wings doused in increasingly spicy hot sauce. “It’s yummy,” Hudgens commented on the vegan chicken wing at the first stage of the challenge, adding, “These are really delicious.” Hudgens—who identifies as a pescetarian—ended the segment itchy, shakey, and sweaty. In June, vegan actress Natalie Portman also appeared on Hot Ones and survived the spicy challenge until the last sauce, ending the show by tearfully asking viewers to stop supporting factory farming.
