Disney star Vanessa Hudgens is talking openly for the first time about those naked pics of her hairy bush that catapulted her to a new level of stardom.
Baby V tells the new issue of Seventeen magazine, “I’m much better now. But truthfully I don’t like talking about it. It was something that was meant to be private, and even though it isn’t anymore, I’d still like to keep it as private as I can.”
Looking back on the whole experience now, she says, “It was very traumatic, and I am extremely upset it happened. I hope all my fans can learn from my mistake and make smart decisions. But I wouldn’t have been able to get through it if it wasn’t for my family, friends and fans, who supported me all along the way.”
On how she found out: “I found out from my manager. We heard some story was going to break in the tabloids, and I was like, What?!? A few days later, the picture came out while I Was on vacation in Australia. Thank God, I wasn’t home ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ it would have sucked if I was at home. So I got to be away from L.A. for about a millisecond. But when I came back, it got kind of crazy.”
On telling her mom: “I was just open with her, and she was just so cute. She was like, ‘Well, everyone can be naked if they want to.’ [Laughs] My parents are very supportive of me. And they know I├óΓé¼Γäóm a teenager, and yes, kids do stupid things sometimes.”
On the Internets: “It├óΓé¼Γäós very unfortunate because with the Internet these days, you don├óΓé¼Γäót have a personal life. Nothing is private: Everyone knows everything, and they can find out everything about you… you have to be aware of the people you├óΓé¼Γäóre around.”
