Vanessa Hudgens Bio
Vanessa Hudgens is an American actress and singer who rose to fame as a teenager with her starring role in the films “High School Musical”.
She had an early love of the show which led her to appear in local music productions at the age of eight. Her big break came in 2006 when she landed the lead role in Disney’s popular high school music film franchise. The actress has followed darker roles in films such as Sucker Punch, Spring Breakers and The Frozen Ground. Hudgens has also released two albums, was a judge on So You Think You Can Dance, and appeared in live television productions for Grease and Rent.
TV shows and Movies
On paper, Hudgens’ role in 2009’s Slamband doesn’t seem like a big leap from the high school musical – she’s the new girl who comes to town and decides to put together a rock band to compete with other bands. However, Hudgens told The New York Times that she was drawn to the screenplay’s description of her character as “immortal”, “introverted” and “a little out of the way.” Sucker Punch (2011) was more of a departure from her Disney image of her when she played a young woman in a psychiatric hospital who fantasizes she’s a brothel.
She has an estimated Net worth of $14million
Life and Legacy
Vanessa started dating Zac Efron in 2005. The relationship lasted five years. She then started dating Austin Butler in 2011.
In 2007, Brian Schall sued her for alleged “breach of contract”. He claimed that Vanessa owed him $ 150,000. She replied that she could not sign the contract because she was a minor at the time (October 2005) when the contract was to be signed.
On September 6, 2007, several photos of Vanessa were posted on the Internet. She then engulfed a lot of controversy as she was naked in some of her photos. A similar incident occurred again in August 2009.
