Vanessa Anne Hudgens: Her sister Stella Hudgens is also an actress. She has been home-schooled since the seventh grade. Her parents are Greg Hudgens and Gina Guangco. In regards to her ethnic background, Vanessa was quoted:
"Pretty much I'm Filipino and Caucasian, but within that, I'm Spanish, Chinese, American Indian, Irish."
Starting at the age of eight, Hudgens performed in musical theater as a singer, and appeared in local productions of Carousel, The Wizard of Oz, The King and I, The Music Man, and Cinderella, among others. Hudgens successfully auditioned for a commercial and subsequently moved to Los Angeles with her family, with whom she is still close. Though she is famous, she still has very close friends, namely Adrianne Galvez, Hannah Montana's Miley Cyrus, Zoey 101's Alexa Nikolas, High School Musical's Ashley Tisdale, and Zac Efron. In April of 2007, the Efron/Hudgens relationship, otherwise known as "Zanessa", was confirmed in the myspace blogs for the Tween magazine, Popstar!, J-14 and by Hudgens' rep on AOL.com. Hudgens and Efron were seen spending some time in Hawaii together. Zac Efron also referred to Zanessa as their "couple name," therefore confirming their relationship.
