Vanessa Hudgens Says a 'High School Musical' Superfan's Parent Once Called Her a 'B**ch'
By Paige Gawley
Not all of Vanessa Hudgens' fan experiences are memorable for a good reason.
The 30-year-old actress stopped by The Late Late Show with James Cordenon Thursday and recalled an unfortunate encounter with the parent of a High School Musical fan at the airport. The hit Disney Channel original movie, which she co-starred in with Zac Efron, debuted in 2006 and had two followups over the next two years.
"Parents will do anything for their kids, right?" Hudgens reasoned. "So I remember, one time in particular, I was running to my gate and the airport, literally running, and this woman was like, 'Oh my God, my daughter loves you!' And I was like, 'Thank you!'"
"And she's like, 'I need a picture!' And I was like, 'I really can't right now, I'm trying to get to my gate,'" she continued. "And she's like, 'Come on! You owe this to me!' And I was like, 'I don't owe you anything.' And then she goes, 'You're a b**ch!' I was like, 'I'm sorry?'"
"I mean, my date nights usually don't consist of as many cameras and more clothes. Not freezing normally," Hudgens -- who wore a Marc Jacobs ruffled peach mini-dress to the event -- told ET at the event. "He's a wonderful supporter, though. I'm happy to have him here."
Hudgens went on to reveal that 27-year-old Butler's support of her career means "everything." "I think it's so important to have a person who is your rock," she said.
