Barely legal High Scool Musical star Vanessa Hudgens is trying to do damage control after full frontal nude pics of her have made the rounds on the internet. The sweet and apparently not so innocent tween fav has officially apologzed for the pics.
The barely legal actress released a statement through her rep late Friday that said, “I want to apologize to my fans, whose support and trust means the world to me. I am embarrassed over this situation and regret having ever taken these photos. I am thankful for the support of my family and friends,” reports the Daily News.
And the power brokers at Disney said this in response:
A spokesperson for the Walt Disney Co., which produced the “High School Musical” franchise, says it’s sticking by Hudgens. Said Disney Channel spokeswoman Patti McTeague, “Vanessa has apologized for what was obviously a lapse in judgment. We hope she’s learned a valuable lesson.”
Yeah, she’s learned that a few naked pics will get you tons of free publicity and make sure that you aren’t forever typecast as the next Mousketeer.
Here are photos of Vanessa and her HSM co-star and boyfriend Zac Efron. I can’t post the naked pics because of lawyers and big legal words.
