Vanessa Hudgens apologises to fans over nude pics

High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens has apologised to fans over revealing photographs of her 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 on Sep 7, 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," E! News 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 Walt Disney Co., 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 HSM productions are untrue. And the Disney Channel also appears to be standing by its leading lady.
"Vanessa has apologized for what was obviously a lapse in judgment. We hope she's learned a valuable lesson," Patti McTeague, a spokespersom for the network said.
Hudgens, who plays a hearty science and math genius in the show, is reportedly dating one of her co-stars, Zac Efron, in real life.
