Actor and singer Vanessa Hudgens credits Disney movies for helping her become an actor, and coming out of her shell. The 22-year-old, who shot to fame with her role as Gabriella Montez in the High School Musical film franchise, alongside former boyfriend Zac Efron, said she was a shy child until she saw her first fairytale movie, which helped her discover a love of performing.
"I was a very shy and quiet kid until my parents took me to see my first Disney movie, Snow White. After that I would always hum and sing the songs and dress up as Snow White. Funny how dressing up and singing songs in High School Musical actually made me a part of the Disney family," the American actor was quoted as saying by dailymail.com.
