Vanessa HudgensPosted in Pics on December 30th, 2010 by Jody
Here is a girl who immediately set off my hapa-dar the first time I saw her: she starred as Gabrielle in the Disney Channel movie High School Musical in 2006, when she was billed as Vanessa Anne Hudgens. She is of Chinese, Filipina, Spanish, Irish, and Native American descent.
She had actually appeared in a few films before HSM, most notably her film debut in the Nikki Reed biopic Thirteen in 2003.
After HSM, she went on to star in sequels HSM2 and HSM3, and in the underrated flick Bandslam. She also starred as Mimi in a production of Rent earlier this year that also featured Nicole Scherzinger.
Despite all that, she may be most famous for her numerous naked picture scandals (warning: link contains nudity), and for dating fellow HSM star Zac Efron for several years before breaking up with him a couple of weeks ago.
Pictures and video after the jump.
