Vanessa Hudgens's nude picture leaked when she was 18



Speaking to Paper Magazine, Hudgens has now admitted that she was horrified when the photographs emerged.

"That was just a really s**tty situation that sucked," she said. "That was by far the worst moment of my career."

However, Hudgens - who will feature in upcoming movie Spring Breakers with Selena Gomez and Ashley Benson - explained that she is keen to move from being a child star to appearing in more grown-up roles.

"It's always been hard for actors to cross that bridge but honestly, you have to hold out and do what you think is right for yourself," she said. "But I also think it is about finding someone who truly believes in you. [Director] Harmony [Korine] took a really big jump in hiring me and Selena and Ashley."

Hudgens also revealed that she was really excited about playing a prostitute with a drug addiction in upcoming movie Frozen Ground.

"Ever since I was young, I wanted to play really heavy and intense roles and really push myself in a dramatic direction," she said. "So I was like, 'A prostitute! I can play a prostitute! This is going to be exciting'."

Spring Breakers will have preview screenings in LA and New York on March 15, before its US release on March 22. The movie will be released in the UK on April 5.
