Nude photos of Vanessa Hudgens have surfaced three times over the past few years, and each time the actress has been humiliated all over again. Now Hudgens says she's tired of reliving the embarrassment over and over and wants to take full control of her image.

"It's just silly because I'm a very present person, and that's the thing that has been so in the past," the Sucker Punch star told the Los Angeles Times.

"The fact that somebody keeps bringing up the past is just selfish. I mean, it sucks. I already released a statement the first time it happened. It's just unfortunate that it keeps reminding people about the past and not the present," she said.

The 22-year-old star says despite the scandals she and only she is the one in charge of her image.

"You really have to stay strong, because times get tough. Especially in this business. It's a dog-eat-dog world," she said. "A lot of women get walked all over on by not standing up for themselves, and that's just not what I'm about. I'm figuring myself out now as a young adult more than I ever have. It's like my eyes are opening and I'm awakening to controlling my future."
