Teenage actress Vanessa Hudgens has denied reports she has been dropped from the upcoming cinema sequel to TV smash HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL because of her recent nude photo scandal. The 18-year-old recently admitted posing for naked camera phone shots that she meant only for the eyes of boyfriend Zac Efron - but the saucy snaps fell into a third party's hands and were plastered all over the internet. However, Hudgens insists the controversy will not affect her role in the Disney follow-up. Her spokesperson says, "It's an old rumour."
