Posted 9/12/07 - Vanessa Hudgens has been left embarrassed by the nude pictures of hers that are being splashed on the net.
High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens has apologised to fans over revealing photographs of hers that hit the internet this week.
The raunchy pictures depict the 18-year-old posing in various states of undress, including completely naked. In a statement issued recently, Hudgens asked for forgiveness from her fans, and said that the situation has left her embarrassed.
"I want to apologize to my fans, whose support and trust mean 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," a website quoted her, as saying. The release of the images could pose trouble for Hudgens, who is currently in negotiations for a third High School Musical film.
And sources are claiming that the film's production house may have second thoughts about casting her in the light of the notorious episode. However, Hudgens' rep, Jill Fritzo insists that all rumours that the singer-actress has been kicked out from future productions are untrue . "Vanessa has apologized for what was obviously a lapse in judgment. We hope she's learned a lesson," a spokesperson for the production network said.
Hudgens, who plays a hearty science and math genius in the show, is reportedly dating one of her costars, Zac Efron, in real life.
