Vanessa Hudgens has joined the revamped “Gigi” musical, which is having a pre-Broadway tryout at the Kennedy Center on January 16, 2014.
Vanessa is set to play the main character! She revealed:
[I was worried if] I could really look like I could be a Parisian in the 1900s. I don’t think they had many Filipinos there then. I went in, and I was terrified. Much to my surprise [I got the offer]. I was, like, screaming in the car. I called my mom; I called my dad. I could not believe it.
Congratulations to Vanessa on landing this role!
We are so sad to hear that Austin Butler’s mom Lori Butler passed away on September 11, 2014. Austin shared the devestating news on Twitter, posting:
Lori Butler, my mom, my hero, & my best friend passed away this morning. Lets all celebrate her. I love you and will miss you every day Mom.
Austin’s girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens added:
I miss you already mama. #ripLoriButler #celebrateLori spread the love for Lori.
Vanessa’s mom Gina Hudgens also added:
Lori, RIP. You’ll be forever alive in our hearts & mind. You’ll always be our angel in heaven watching over us. U will be missed!
Our thoughts are with Austin, Vanessa and their families during this difficult time.
