(NEW YORK) -- Ashley Tisdale is showing everyone she's no longer the young girl we saw in High School Musical. The actress poses in the buff in the May issue of Allure magazine.
Tisdale, who currently stars in the CW's Hellcats, explained her decision by saying, "I'm 25, almost 26, but people think of me as much younger because I look young. Being in this shoot was me saying, 'I'm not just the young girl everybody thinks I am. I'm actually a woman.'"
Tisdale is just one of four stars to shed her clothes in Allure. She's joined by Bridget Moynahan, Kaley Cuoco and Keri Hilson.
