Neutrogena Signs Emerging
New Talent to Represent the Brand
Actress Vanessa Hudgens to Appear in National Advertising Campaign
LOS ANGELES, March 27 /PRNewswire/ -- A leading manufacturer of premium
skin, hair and cosmetics products, Neutrogena Corporation today announced
that actress Vanessa Hudgens will act as the newest spokesperson for the
"Vanessa Hudgens has an energetic, dynamic personality that will truly
complement the spirit of Neutrogena. We are pleased to welcome her to our
team," says Neutrogena President, North America,
Trained in piano, dance and voice, the native Californian launched her
dynamic career in musical theatre at the young age of eight, and has
appeared in such notable productions as The King & I, Damn Yankees and
Evita, to name only a few.
It wasn't long before her talents were recognized and she made her
feature film debut, alongside Holly Hunter and Evan Rachael Wood, in the
much talked about Thirteen. She continued her foray into film by
co-starring in the action-packed Thunderbirds, as well as became a
recurring guest star on the Disney Channel's The Suite Life of Zach & Cody.
In 2006, Ms. Hudgens co-starred in her truly breakout role in the
Disney Channel's sensational movie High School Musical, for which she
obtained much praise and notoriety. It also earned her a nomination for
Choice Breakout Star at the 2006 Teen Choice Awards. Ms. Hudgens just
completed filming High School Musical 2: Sing It All or Nothing!, which is
scheduled to be released later this year.
Not one to sit still, Ms. Hudgens also recorded her first solo album,
V, in the fall of last year. Though the "V" stands for Vanessa, the
singer/actress admits it also stands for variety, as the CD is chocked full
of various genres, from pop to rock, R&B to dance music. Her first hit
video, "Come Back to Me" premiered on MTV's TRL, while she launched
first music tour last fall, alongside the Cheetah Girls.
As a new spokesperson for Neutrogena, Ms. Hudgens will be featured in
both national TV and print campaigns. She joins fellow Neutrogena
spokespersons Kelly Preston, Susie Castillo, Gabrielle Union, Hayden
Panettiere, Julie Bowen, Kristin Kreuk and Paola Rey, each of whom will
continue in their role as Neutrogena representatives.
