The phrase, “What are you?” tends to be among the most annoying questions for some people. Let’s spare High School Musical Star Vanessa Hudgens the question. MCCN will provide the answer. Hudgens was born to a father of Irish and Native American ancestry and a Filipino mother of Filipino, Spanish and Chinese descent. Her mother grew up in Manilla.
The beautiful multi-cultural Vanessa does not speak Tagalog but says that her mother tried to teach her when she was younger. She loves Filipino food and is proud to be a Filipina.
In an interview with Inquirer.net, Hudgen shares about her favorite Filipino foods, “I love Filipino food. I love halo-halo, pancit and adobo. I am such a Filipino—I eat rice every day.”
