Confession time kids.
I, your humble editor, struggle from time to time with this feature.
I can hear you now. "How hard can it be to find pictures of scantily clad chicks on the internet and pair them up with other folks' work?"
Its harder than it looks.
Sure, we could throw just anyone up there, but my goal is to make our lovely ladies at germane, if only for the week.
Throw in my self imposed "No Kardashians or Lohans" rule and, well, let's just say some weeks its difficult.
The other place I struggle is on the subject of age. There is a whole parcel of young cheesecake out there, but I often feel like a creepy old dude when I consider them for our weekly honors.
This week is a perfect case in point.
Journey2: The Mysterious Island
opens this week. Its a sequel of sorts to 2008's Journey to the Center of the Earth
. Brendan Fraser has been replaced by The Rock. And Vanessa Hudgens has been added as a love interest for Josh Hutcherson's character.
That makes Ms. Hudgens a prime candidate for cheesecake honors.
Still, she's most famous for being the lead in Disney's High School Musical
franchise and, to a lesser extent, her co-star's (alleged) beard.
The Disney to cheesecake math creeped me out.
I mentioned that to Chris last week as we were leaving Kevin Smith's Live From Behind
event. He rightfully pointed out that once you send full frontal pictures to your boyfriend and they "leak" onto the internet, you've made yourself fair game.
So, with clear consicence, I would like to introduce this week's cheesecake, Vanessa Hudgens.
As previously stated, Ms. Hudgens rose to fame on the strength of the tween sensation that was High School Musical 1-3
. Since then, she has struggled to get traction for her career.
***Note to our readers, that will be the one and only time the term tween will ever be used by me on this website.***
both tanked at the box office. So did her fledgling musical career.
In fact, her biggest post-HSM claim to fame is the nude pictures that were "accidentally" released to the public
According to IMDB, in addition to Journey2
(where is the Electric Boogaloo
dammit), she has three movies in post-production, so she's got a chance of breaking out of the shadow of the mouse.
