Hey, Ashley Tisdale: Starring in "Scary Movie V" looks good on you. And those skimpy clothes look good halfway off you, in your May cover spread for Maxim.
The most recent incarnation of the "Scary Movie" franchise offers Tisdale a chance for fans to see her differently than she appeared in the "High School Musical" series of Disney Channel films, playing Sharpay Evans, popular teen drama queen.
For "SMV," Tisdale, 27, found herself around the likes of Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen. (She's "great," by the way, and he's "super cool and very professional" — and didn't try to hit on her, in case you wondered.)

"There were so many cameos, and that’s what I love about these movies. They’d write a scene, then look for cameos, and they’d just pop in and do it. It was, like, Whoa, Mike Tyson's here, and that wasn’t even planned!"
Not that she's traded away her old "HSM" fans completely. How could she, really, given how eager some of them are?
"Once I Instagrammed a picture of me waking up," she told the mag, "and the next day this older gentleman came to my parents’ house saying he wasn’t going to leave till he saw me. I was like, maybe I shouldn’t have taken a picture of me in bed?"
However, if you are the kind of guy she's interested in — maybe a surfer blond frat boy, maybe a dark mysterious fellow with an edge — she might make the first move. Just don't expect her to do all the dirty work.
"I’m definitely old-school when it comes to dating. I’m not into the 'game' so much. If I like you, I'll confront you and be open about it.
"Then I expect you to come after me."
With pictures like the ones in Maxim, who could resist?
The issue with Tisdale on the cover is on stands now. "Scary Movie V" opens in theaters Friday.
