The 27-year-old actress stripped down to a leather jacket and a bikini bottom for the cover, which features an article about her life titled, "Dreams Do Come True -- Sexy Dreams!"
During the interview, Tisdale, who rose to fame in 2004 as Sharpay Evans -- the pink-wearing mean girl in Disney Channel's original movie "High Shool Musical," talked about her taste in men, starring in her first blockbuster movie and Lindsay Lohan.
Tisdale will be back on the silver screen Friday as Jody, the lead character in the horror comedy parody film, "Scary Movie 5." When asked about her experience in the movie, the actress was quick to gush about how much fun she had filming.
"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!"
Lindsay Lohan did one of the many cameos Tisdale so greatly enjoyed. She said working alongside the troubled star had been "great."
In regards to men, Tisdale confessed she's attracted to the "surfer, blond frat guys," but that "there's definitely a thing where I like the dark, mysterious bad boy." The actress is currently dating Annie Automatic's rocker Christopher French.
