14 Celebs You Didn’t Realize Are Asian

14. Vanessa Hudgens

The world was introduced to Vanessa Hudgens when she played Gabriella Montez, a character with an obviously Spanish name, in the classic Disney movie High School Musical.  Then she recorded several songs in the Spanish language so I, along with some other people, just assumed she was Hispanic, but she actually has a very diverse background. Vanessa Hudgens is Irish, Filipino, Spanish and Chinese.  I cannot be the only one who was surprised to learn that Vanessa Hudgens is part Asian, right?
