Vanessa Hudgens: 'X Factor' Host Rumor Debunked

Vanessa Hudgens: 'X Factor' Host Rumor Debunked

Vanessa Hudgens arrives at LAX International Airport on her way to catch a departing flight on Sunday (December 5) in Los Angeles.

The 22-year-old actress is rumored to be lined up to host the American version of the hit UK talent competition The X Factor alongside her boyfriend Zac Efron.

While there is no confirmation, Vanessa and Zac would replace UK host Dermot O’Leary, who has been lobbying for the US position.

Simon Cowell, who is a judge on the UK version, will serve as a judge on the US version as well.

The new trailer for Vanessa‘s upcoming flick Beastly was recently released!

UPDATE: Vanessa will NOT be hosting X-Factor, as confirmed by her rep, via GossipCop.

  • heather

    She looks quite tired. But, I’m so happy she is putting on a beautiful smile. Wonder why she is in Los Angeles. Filming isn’t over yet. Hmm…

  • joanne

    this is absolutely false. HELLO it’s from News of the World?! ANyways, she looks amazing here as always

  • joan

  • Lala?

    She is gorgeous! What’s up with the highlights? I hope the rumors r true. Simon said they r the popular version of brad and angie

  • Louise

    I cannot see that happening..they are both film actors I mean come on, does anyone seriously think that either Vanessa or Zac would even consider doing this? It would restrict their careers, it takes up so much time when doing it too. Plus the salary would not even come close to what they earn each film.

    Whoever the rumours are from, they can rumour away but that does not mean either Vanessa or Zac have anything to do with

  • mike

    Vaeneesa as an x factor host ? its a good idea

  • nathalia

    vanessa is beautiful
    simply lovely

  • Louise

    She is probably going to Carolina where filming is continuing after Hawaii.

  • maria

    She looks SOO good… the sweater and long muff!!! She looks comfy and cozy! She must be on a break from filming for a bit. Cute highlights too!

  • Emily

    @lauren: Please, get out of my way.

  • annie1st

    @Louise: well i guess the rumour come from simon that think x factor host for US, must be from US too, so there wont be to much british in the program, idk corect me if im wrong

  • Bradley Bobst

    She is so Fine and Sexy I’m So Totally in Love with Vanessa.

  • Samantha

    maybe shes got a couple of weeks off, to prepare for her birthday?

  • andrea

    She looks beautiful

  • zanessa/scashley/ashnessa

    I love that top !! Is that a sweater or a jacket ? Or is that a vest.. ? Lol, I can’t really tell but nice finally seeing her. :D She’s looking great. As always. ♥

  • Haters Suck!

    if it’s true cool, but I seriously doubt it. She does look a little tired but still so damn hot

  • Katty

    I hope they don’t judge the X Factor. That seems like a stupid idea for them, they are preformers, not judges of them. Besides, they should be more interested in their film roles and decisions on them rather than judging others. Maybe if they were much older, but they are in their early twenties and working on their careers, not too much of a background to be helpful.

    Why is she wearing heels with sweatpants, or is that just me? Haha. I love her. I can’t wait for Beastly and Sucker Punch and I didn’t even know she was in LA. Hope she had a good time.

  • Halle

    I don’t think Zac or Vanessa would settle for this job. I can’t see either of them choosing a semi-permanent hosting job over multiple movie offers. The should choose someone else.

    Vanessa looks beautiful as always though!

  • roxana

    lovely girl!

  • birdie

    She looks so pretty. I doubt that this is anything but a rumor. Both
    Zac and Vanessa are just beginning their film careers. Zac especially seems to have projects that will keep him busy for the next few years.

  • kami

    ♥ she looks so beautiful, relaxed and happy. ♥
    who the heck starts these stupid rumors? no way are zv gonna host a gig like that. that would be like ten steps backward for them.

  • kgg

    Looks like V flew into LA for the weekend and is flying back to Hawaii to finish up that part of her movie…..the filming in North Carolina doesn’t start until January and scheduled to end in Feb. She is looking mighty cute in these airport photos.

  • jess!

    She´s looking gorgeous
    Only she can pull that outfit

  • jess!

  • http://fanpopgirl fanpopgirl

    i really like wht she is wearing.Does anyone knw when is zac’s movie going to end rumours are flying around lately that it willbe finished by the 21st of december.but still not confirmed

  • curiosity

    She looks amazing… her <3

  • anne

    love her so much!

  • anne

    she looks really gorgeous!

  • Louise


    No, not really. Basically, look at Cat Deeley….she British and hosts so you think you can dance which is also run in assocation with British company. You could look at American Idol with Ryan but Simon created it after our original Pop Idol in Britain and it’s still run in assocation with British company (Simon Fuller/Cowell) and Nigel who runs So you think you can dance is back at the helm as exec producer.

    I personally dont think this rumour would come from Simon himself, maybe certain publicists to drum up hype but Dermot O Leary who hosts the X Factor over here is still said to be top choice as host. I personally think it’s rumour mill gone wild because of hype over it now being picked up in the U.S.

    I dont think it matters if the host is British or American.

  • Louise


    Also there will be Simon and Cheryl Cole who is British as judges so yes, a british stamp will still be on it.

  • musicgirl

    Oh she is so gorgeous! LOVE her outfit! is really cool!:) she looks so amazing without makeup, walking perfection! <3

  • claudia

    she looks stunning as always.

  • sky10

  • mariam

    @kami,you are right ,we know if they will us the name of zanessa in this thing they will get huges buzz right and what the heck zv will accept this ,they just start there carrer, especially zac he has allot of project line up,we don’t know about nessa cuz she is like a popcorn that it will pop in your face,she has abillity of ninja……..hiiiiiiiiiiyhaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!ha…….ha……….ha !!

  • Sandra

    I’m fainting ^_^
    her smile turned me upsidedown ; )

  • BOJI

    So the twitter was true, she was seen at the airport. Well, I wonder what the quick trip to LA meant, another project perhaps.

  • Pit

    or she could have just gone home for the weekend with her family!! I do hope that she had a meeting or photoshoot. The highlights in the hair when she returned does make you wonder if she had something going on that required that?? I suspect the highlights will disappear today when she returns to filming. But I do like them!!

  • daniel

    X-factor?????? just a rumor guys¡¡btw vanessa looks very pretty i missed her the past weekend¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡
    she’s phenomenal
