Vanessa Hudgens calls 2007 nude photo scandal 'by far the worst moment of my career'

By Gina DiFalco,

Vanessa Hudgens is looking back at one of the bumps in the road when it comes to her career: the nude photo scandal.

Hudgens, a former Disney star, hit the red carpet for the premiere of her latest film Spring Breakers in Berlin, Germany alongside Selena Gomez on Tuesday.

But she spoke about the 2007 scandal to Paper magazine, saying “That was just a really s**tty situation that sucked," adding, "That was by far the worst moment of my career."

Now 24, Hudgens has embraced taking on more adult roles. She explained, “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.”

When filming the racy movie with co-stars Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine, she said they snorted Vitamin B to make it look like they were actually snorting cocaine.

"You sit there. You're smoking your fake blunts. You just do it," she also said. “We would run around set like mad men, and people would wonder, 'Did you switch that out with anything?''

Hudgens has previously spoken out about shooting the film, revealing there were actual Spring Breakers there as extras.

She explained, “We were filming this party scene, and there were these two girls — actual spring breakers — on the ground, topless, making out with each other. And then the bottoms started to come off, and I was like, OH MY GOD! And, literally, you see it in the movie, I’m wearing this, like, candy necklace, and I’m like, Ahhh, and freaking out because these girls are naked, two feet away from me, and they were just insane.”
