Double trouble: Abbie Cornish and Vanessa Hudgens on their respective Nylon covers


Pow! Nylon's April issue has hit us right in the kisser.

After presenting us with a beachy Kate Bosworth for March, the fashion magazine is upping the It girl factor with five stand-alone covers devoted to the stars of Sucker Punch, the all-female action/fantasy film opening in theaters March 25.

Editor Marvin Scott Jarrett shot stars Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Emily Browning, and Jamie Chung for their individual covers, which sees the girls in butt-kicking mode. While Hudgens sports a Burberry Prorsum biker jacket over a sheer yellow Proenza Schouler top, Cornish boasts a Volcom tee paired with a pompadour, and Malone slips on a colorblock Versus dress.

The ladies also spill the beans on the film's "empowering" theme ("My adrenaline was kicking, my energy, my spirits were so high that I literally felt like I had just walked out of a rock concert," Hudgens says of seeing the movie for the first time), shooting love scenes with Jon Hamm (sigh), and, yes, starring on The Real World.

"That was a fun college experience," says San Diego cast member Chung, clad in a red leather jacket from Y-3. "They're like, 'We'll pay your rent for three months, we'll send you off to an awesome vacation.' It totally beat serving cocktails at the local college bar."

The same could surely be said of Emily Browning's steamy on-screen tryst with a certain Don Draper.

"I had a very tame and mild love scene with Jon Hamm," reveals Browning, rocking a studded Moschino leather jacket over Sonia Rykiel bloomers and a striped Marc Jacobs sweater.

"I think it's great for this young girl to actually take control of her own sexuality. Well, the MPAA doesn't like that. They don't think a girl should ever be in control of her own sexuality because they're from the Stone Age," she continues. "So essentially, they got Zack [Snyder, the film's director] to edit the scene and make it look less like she's into it. And Zack said he edited it down to the point where it looked like he was taking advantage of her. That's the only way he could get a PG-13 [rating] and he said, 'I don't want to send that message.' So they cut the scene!"
