In a brand-new interview with Cosmopolitan UK, Vanessa Hudgens opened up about the hacking scandal that saw her nude photos leaked online. Angela Weiss / Getty Images Back in 2007, and while at the height of her fame due to the success of the High School Musical franchise, Vanessa's private pictures were touted about the internet and tabloids.

Frazer Harrison / Getty Images In fact, in a statement released at the time, Vanessa apologised for the photos, saying: "I want to apologize to my fans, whose support and trust means 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." Now, though, Vanessa has opened up about how she really felt, calling the invasion of privacy "traumatising" and "fucked up". Valerie Macon / Getty Images "It was a really traumatising thing for me," she told Cosmopolitan UK. "It's really fucked up that people feel like they are entitled enough to share something that personal with the world." Ralph Orlowski / Getty Images "As an actor, you completely lose all grip of your own privacy, and it’s really sad," Vanessa continued. "Unfortunately, if enough people are interested, they're going to do everything they can to get to know as much about you as they can, which is flattering, I guess, but then people take it too far and end up divulging things that should be personal." Vanessa added that she thought the problem came down to how accessible celebrities are today and how fans feel like they really know them.

She added: "There's almost — I don't want to say lack of respect because that sounds negative — but it just makes you feel like you know them even though you don't." When asked about the #MeToo movement, Vanessa didn't hold back. She revealed that, while working in Hollywood, she's been spoken to in "ways that are not appropriate". Theo Wargo / Getty Images "I'm the type of person in any situation, whether it's an audition or in work, if I feel uncomfortable, I'm going to walk away or let that person know they’re making me feel uncomfortable," she said. "Then, if they don’t respect that, they can go fuck off. If someone doesn't like that, literally they can fuck off. As long as you hold your ground, no one will bring you down."
