Vanessa Hudgens picked up $12,000 worth of freebies at the Golden Globe awards "swag suites" over the weekend.
The 'High School Musical' actress was keen to pick up as many items as possible from the ceremony's sponsors and various parties, and at one point her assistant was seen carrying four bags crammed with goodies.
A source who was at an event held by US TV show 'Access Hollywood' told the New York Daily News newspaper: "Vanessa overtook the area and was careful to make sure she took something from every booth."
Among the items she picked were a one-year pass for herself and a friend to AMC Theatres, a BlackBerry Pearl phone, a coffee machine, a $4,000 diamond pendant, designer clutch bags and a year's membership at a gym.
The 20-year-old star was also heard talking about the "huge house" she has just bought, explaining to friends how excited she is to be moving in.
Legendary actor Clint Eastwood was less thrilled at the goodies on offer, insisting he had no intention of helping himself to any.
He said: "I don't want anything. I don't want any gifts. These companies are trying to advertise, and they figure it's low-cost advertising. They want to sell their product and help make the economy better, which is okay, but it's not for me."
British comedian Ricky Gervais was also unimpressed by the offerings.
He commented: "Sunglasses are the only things I can bear to take from these lounges. I'm kind of like Elton John that way."
