Disney star Vanessa Hudgens is busting out in more ways than one. On the eve of her new film debut, more risqué photos have gone viral on the Internet, along with some hot girl-on-girl action with starlet Alexa Nikolas.
Were they leaked, or is it a publicity stunt? Only Vanessa knows for sure.
But the coincidence between the debut of her film “Sucker Punch,” and the sudden emergence of racy photos, for the third time, is raising eyebrows.
Photos of Hudgens that started going viral last night (Mar. 14), appear to have been taken at the same time in 2007, according to several reports.

The photos of her purportedly kissing “Zoey 101” star Nikolas, may have been taken at a later date, however.
When the photos initially surfaced four years ago, Hudgens sued after a Web site refused to take down the photos.
Their release also coincided with the debut of one of her film.
Hudgens, 21 at the time, tried to assert a copyright claim, saying the photos were “self-portrait photographs” obtained and posted on the Internet without Hudgens’ knowledge or consent.
She even went so far as to file claims with the U.S. Copyright Office.
“I think it has made me stronger. But it still hurts,” she said when the first photos were posted. “It sucks because they were supposed to be private, but at the same time a lot of actresses do it [nudity].”
Hudgens broke up with her “High School Musical” co-star Zac Efron, in December.
She says in the April issue of Shape magazine that busy work schedules and filming at different locations around the world led to their break up.
Hudgens trained for “Sucker Punch.”
“I wouldn’t have been able to do it if it weren’t for the other girls [co-stars Abbie Cornish, Emily Browning, Jena Malone and Jamie Chung].
“It’s because of them that I got so strong,” Hudgens told the magazine. “In the beginning, I could dead lift 135 pounds. By the end, I lifted 180. I was a monster!”
