The 24-year-old is pushing boundaries today playing edgy roles including a prostitute and violent teen in her movie "Spring Breakers".
But she says it was difficult to deal with the whole scandal in 2007, reported Daily Mail.
"That was just a really bad situation that sucked. That was by far the worst moment of my career," she said.
Hudgens also talked about her interests when it comes to picking up new roles.
"Ever since I was young, I wanted to play really heavy and intense roles and really push myself in a dramatic direction. In 'Frozen Ground' when I was offered to play a drug-addicted prostitute, I was like, 'A prostitute! I can play a prostitute! This is going to be exciting'," she said.
