I absolutely adore Vanessa Hudgens. She is a great actress who has stupendous legs.
On September 6, 2007, photos of Hudgens appeared online, one showing her posing in lingerie and another showing her nude. A statement from her publicist claims that the photo was taken privately and it was unfortunate that they were released on the Internet. Hudgens later apologised, saying that she was “embarrassed over the situation” and regretted having “taken [those] photos”. Hudgens subsequently released a statement indicating that she declined to comment further on the subject. OK! magazine speculated that Hudgens would be dropped from High School Musical 3 as a result of the images, but The Walt Disney Company denied this, saying, “Vanessa has apologized for what was obviously a lapse in judgment. We hope she’s learned a valuable lesson.”
In August 2009, another set of pictures showing Hudgens topless emerged on the Internet. Hudgens’ representatives did not comment, though her lawyers requested the removal of the pictures from the Internet. In late 2009, Hudgens sued “www.moejackson.com” for posting nude “self-portrait photographs” of her taken on a mobile phone in a private home. Hudgens later commented on the photos’ impact on her career in the October issue of Allure with, “Whenever anybody asks me, would I do nudity in a film, if I say that it’s something I’m not comfortable with, they’re like, ‘Bullshit, you’ve already done it.’ If anything, it makes it more embarrassing, because that was a private thing. It’s screwed up that someone screwed me over like that. At least some people are learning from my mistake.”According to Us Weekly, further pictures were released on the Internet on March 15, 2011.
Hudgens was represented by William Morris Agency but signed on to Creative Artists Agency in 2011. In 2006, Hudgens’ earnings were estimated to be $2 million.Hudgens was included in Forbes richest list in early 2007, and the Forbes article noted that she was included in Young Hollywood’s Top Earning-Stars. On December 12, 2008, Hudgens was ranked No. 20 in the list of Forbes “High Earners Under 30”, having reported to have an estimated earnings of $3 million in 2008. She was number 62 at FHM‘s Sexiest Women in the World of 2008 and number 42 in the 2009 list. Hudgens is also featured in Maxim‘s lists. She was included in People‘s annual “100 Most Beautiful People” 2008 and 2009 lists.
Hudgens promotes Neutrogena and was the 2008 featured celebrity for Sears‘ back-to school campaign. In 2007, she became a spokesperson for Marc Eckō products but ended the contract after two years. Hudgens regularly volunteers for charitable activities, including those for Best Buddies International, Lollipop Theater Network, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the VH1 Save The Music Foundation. Hudgens is also featured in A Very Special Christmas Vol.7 disc which benefits the Special Olympics. Hudgens is also part of the “Stand Up to Cancer (SU2C): Change The Odds” along with other Hollywood stars including Zac Efron, Dakota Fanning, Kristen Bell, and others.
Brian Schall sued Hudgens in 2007 for an alleged “breach of contract”; according to the suit, Schall claims he advanced costs and expenses on Hudgens’ behalf for her songwriting and recording career. Schall claims Hudgens owed him $150,000 after helping her earn more than $5 million for her music career. Hudgens argued that she was a 16-year-old minor when she signed the contract in October 2005, and therefore too young to do so. She subsequently disaffirmed it on October 9, 2008. Papers filed in court by her lawyer say California’s Family Code “provides that the contract of a minor is voidable and may be disaffirmed before (age 18) or within a reasonable time afterward.”In 2008, Hudgens was sued by Johnny Vieira, who claims he was owed a share of Hudgens’ advances, royalties and merchandising revenue in exchange for his management services. Vieira accuses Hudgens of abandoning her talent team as soon as she became a commercial name. In early May 2009, the case was settled.
