Vanessa Hudgens Says She Owes Her Career To Her Dad Greg

Vanessa Hudgens is opening up about still keeping her dad, Greg Hudgens, close with her even though he passed away last year.

“I talk to him constantly,” the Powerless actress and singer shared with People. “I just continued to do what I love. He was such a supporter of allowing me to continue to follow my dreams without him driving me to L.A. for auditions all the time. I would not have been possible.”

Vanessa adds that she actually owes her career to her dad, “Without him I obviously would not be here, in many ways.”

“He was always the strong/silent type and whenever he would see my work he would get very emotional. I just always have that image of him – the proud look that he got in his face when he saw me doing what I loved,” she continues. “I know he’s up there looking down with that same look on his face.”

Vanessa is also pictured below, running some errands in Los Angeles earlier this week.
