'High School Musical' star Vanessa Hudgens is still upset about her nude photograph scandal and says that the incident acted as a strengthening factor in her life.
The 21-year-old actress' image was tarnished when two sets of pictures of her posing provocatively for boyfriend and co-star Zac Ffron appeared online first in 2007 and again in 2009.
The Disney star issued a public apology, but says that she hasn't got over the shock yet, reported Sun online.
"I think it has made me stronger. But it still hurts. It hurts because the photos were supposed to be private," said Hudgens.
