* ContractualPurity:
** Encountered it while she was still with Disney. There was a scandal involving nude photos of her that got leaked - never mind that they were ''private''. Nonetheless she wasn't dropped from the third ''High School Musical'' movie, despite speculation. She said the scandal affected her career in an odd way; she's been asked to do nudity since and when she's declined, people would express surprise since "you've already done it".
** The scandal may not have helped her break out of it, but as soon as she left Disney she opted for darker and more sexual roles in ''Film/SuckerPunch'' and ''Film/SpringBreakers''.
