"That was such a shitty situation, that sucked," Hudgens tells the latest issue of Paper of the 2007 incident that she' deemed "by far the worst moment of my career."

Hudgens merely sent then-boyfriend Zac Efron some sexy photos back in the day, but the subsequent leaking of these naked pics on the Internet nearly cost Vanessa her role in High School Musical 3.

Fast forward five years, however, and the 24-year old is now starring in Spring Breakers opposite James Franco and Selena Gomez.

"Ever since I was young, I wanted to play really heavy and intense roles and really push myself in a dramatic direction."
