Vanessa Hudgens gets papped in a bikini ahead of film premiere: totally staged?

Over the weekend, Vanessa Hudgens was papped in a bikini while frolicking at the beach with her latest boyfriend, Austin Butler. The whole thing is so obviously posed, and one gets the feeling that she’s got the paps on speed dial. Vanessa certainly has a history of releasing photos when it suits her career to do so. Everyone remembers those infamous 2007 nude cell phone shots that Vanessa took of herself during her High School Musical days that somehow (oops!) ended up in the hands of the public. Then last March, Vanessa feigned outrage at a conveniently released set of nude photos that surfaced right ahead of Bandslam although that little “mistake” didn’t exactly pay off at the box office. Still, racy photos are her go-to move, so she shall not be deterred for long.

Now Vanessa’s got a new movie — Journey 2: The Mysterious Island — which also stars one of Vanessa’s ex-lovers, Josh Hutcherson, coming out on February 10. While we haven’t seen any top-secret cell phone photos yet (but there’s still time for that), Vanessa has taken to the beach for some strategically staged photos in and out of the water with poor, unaware Austin:

Since being reunited in Hawaii earlier this week, Vanessa Hudgens and her boyfriend Austin Butler haven’t been able to keep their hands off each other.

And it was no different yesterday, as the couple put on yet another public display of affection in the waters of Hawaii.

With her bikini body on display in a tiny black patterned two piece, Vanessa, 23, leaned in to hug and kiss her shirtless beau on Saturday evening.

The two tanned actors splashed around the water and watched the sun set after going kayaking together.

Vanessa and fellow Disney actor Austin, 20, who have been dating since last September, are clearly very much in the honeymoon period of their relationship.

This is the third straight day the love birds have frolicked in the surf and shared a steamy kiss in public.

Their affectionate displays have left onlookers with no doubt as to who has Vanessa ‘s heart now.

It’s been a whirlwind week for the brunette beauty who was in Australia last Sunday with former boyfriend Josh Hutcherson promoting their new movie Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.

Journey 2: The Mysterious Island centres around a woman and her boyfriend on a mission to find his grandfather, who is thought to be missing on a mythical island.

It co-stars Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson who was brought in to replace Brendan Fraser who starred in the last instalment titled Journey to the Center of the Earth.

The action-adventure will hit theatres in the US on Friday, February 10.

Well, let’s not completely jump to conclusions here. Perhaps Vanessa just happened to plan a beach vacation for this weekend well in advance of knowing the date for Journey 2‘s premiere date. Or maybe she just got a lark and decided to go to the beach and show off her cute booty for no reason at all. I mean, she’s got a really cute booty that must be very difficult to hide.

Still, something about this screams “Look at me in a bikini! Look at my beautiful boyfriend! Go see my movie now, okay?” Eh, the movie’s going to do well anyway regardless of whether Vanessa’s showing off her great figure or not. As the sequel to Journey to the Center of the Earth, which was a hell of a lot of fun and grossed $241 million worldwide, Journey 2 already had a head start at success even before the casting process began. As a bonus, the filmmakers have swapped out Brendan Fraser with Dwayne Johnson. Slurp!

    She looks like the girl my ex dated after me.

    I hope she falls in a volcano.

  2. T. says:

    This chick. I don’t get why she is always papped.

  3. T.C. says:

    She has no booty, girl is completely flat. She has a nice shape but nothing really outstanding. There are thousands of girls in L.A. with better bodies. So she should probably work on getting some talent.

  4. RocketMerry says:

    Her body looks good (and healthy, which is nice for once), but the pics are so staged.

    • Capella says:

      Absolutely agree. A healthy body, nothing outrageous, just cute.

      As for the pictures, to get shots this close, well, the paparazzo was in the water beside them. This is more a photo shoot, than a paparazzi shot!

      And someone said this guy has nothing on Zac Effron: To be fair, no one can get any prettier to the Effron, not even Cindy Crawford in her teens! And she was gorgeous! (Still is, but now botoxed to hell)

  5. Rhiley says:

    Her current boyfriend has nothing on Zac Efron. He looks Miley Cyrus.

  6. Camille says:

    She should tone her body a little bit.

  7. Chelsey says:

    It’s a good thing she’s so cute and photogenic, because girlfriend can’t act her way out of a paper bag…

  8. Alexis says:

    I like her body – healthy and thin. A few squats to give her booty more curve would be great, though.

  9. Roma says:

    I thought she was one of the “celebs” who were legitimately hacked? I don’t think she released the photos herself.

  10. Kimbob says:

    Oh yeah, these are staged, for sure. The quality of the photos speak for themselves. She’s an idiot.

  11. nina says:

    hahah, she’s so obvious. She calls the paps herself, she’s got them on speed dial. Very cute girl, very cute body, but she looks like this kid’s babysitter, he looks like he’s 12, and she’s a total pap ho. Dial it down honey.

  12. Bob says:

    She is so overrated. At least they aren’t humping each other like they usually are. She’s an attention whore for sure.

  13. Jules says:

    Of course it’s staged. Why does anyone care about this no talent Disney bimbo?

  14. Kel says:

    She is cute, but there’s been so much of their PDA photographed lately it’s almost like she’s trying to make someone jealous. That’s her youth showing through. Her extensions definitely suit her better than the short hair she had a few months ago.

  15. mia girl says:

    Staged or not, I’ll be sure to casually show these pics to my teen daughter to show her that she there are young celebrities who look healthy and fit… without being rail thin. You know like an average young girl.

  16. Kim says:

    She has no REAL career so she has to tip off paps to stay relevant (in her head).

  17. Sophie says:

    That is NOT celebrity-level bikini body. Girl has no ass and no waist. If that’s what she looks like at 23…her career is nearly over.
