In our hearts Ashley Tisdale will always be Sharpay Evans, the pink-wearing drama-queen teen from High School Musical. (She’s our spirit animal.) But in case you haven’t noticed, Ashley has shed her Disney image in spectacular fashion. On April 12 she’s taking the lead in Scary Movie V, a reboot of the franchise that spoofs recent frightening films, including Black Swan, Paranormal Activity, and the scariest of them all, Madea’s Witness Protection. We had a chat with Ashley about what freaks her out, turns her on, and rotates her chicken. (It’s the Ronco Rotisserie!)

High School Musical fans are a…passionate bunch. What’s the craziest thing someone has done?
Once I Instagrammed a picture of me waking up, 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?

So what was scarier: Having a ghost in your room or being on set with Lindsay Lohan?
Definitely the ghost. I think Lindsay’s great! 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!

Speaking of celebrities, aren’t you distant cousins with Ron Popeil, the Ronco guy who’s famous for the Chop-O-Matic and Pocket Fisherman?
Yeah, and I have one of his knives and the rotisserie. The family on my mom’s side, their whole business is inventing and pitching stuff. My grandfather is in infomercials. He’s a pitchman, so if you’re ever watching TV late at night, you’ll probably see him pitch­ing knives. My great-grand­father also invented the plastic cheese grater.

That’s amazing! Your holiday dinners must be super efficient.
We definitely have a lot of great kitchen utensils.
