On Tuesday, nude photos of Vanessa Hudgens hit the Internet. The shots were taken several years ago but hadn't surfaced until now, and now the starlet and her team are taking action. In a statement released to the press late Tuesday, her lawyer, Christopher Wong, noted that they are working with police to find the person who keeps leaking photos of the actress.
"Vanessa is deeply upset and angered that these old photos, which were taken years ago, continue to resurface," Wong said in a statement. "It is particularly disturbing that whoever got a hold of these private photos seems to be intent on illegally leaking them out over a long period of time."
The new photos are part of a set that was previously leaked. The new ones are certainly NSFW: They include Hudgens seen topless and kissing another girl, reportedly actress Alexa Nikolas, who stars in the upcoming films "LOL" and "Red State."
This is the third time Hudgens has found herself in a photo scandal. Nude photos of Hudgens hit the Web in 2007 and again in 2009. Her lawyer continues, "We are actively working with law enforcement to determine who is responsible and to hold them accountable for their actions."
In 2009, the "Sucker Punch" star addressed her previous photo leaks, noting in an interview with Allure magazine that she hoped people would learn from her mistakes. "It's so aggravating and frustrating, and whenever anybody asks me, would I do nudity in a film, if I say that it's something I'm not comfortable with, they're like, 'Bullsh--, you've already done it,' " she said. "It's screwed up that someone screwed me over like that. ... At least some people are learning from my mistakes."
