Dane Cook's Vanessa Hudgens Joke Edited Out of Monday's Teen Choice Awards

USMagazine, Tuesday, August 11, 2009, 5:40am (PDT)

Those who watched the Teen Choice Awards Monday night still missed one of the show's most talked about moments.

Dane Cook's on-stage joke about Vanessa Hudgens's nude photos was cut from the televised broadcast.

On Sunday, when stars gathered to tape the pre-recorded awards ceremony that aired one day later, the comedian called out the former High School Musical star's name.

"Girl, you gots to keep your clothes! Phones are for phone calls, girl," he said, referencing her most recent topless pictures to be leaked online. (Photos of her posing nude in lingerie also surfaced in late 2007, forcing Hudgens to apologize and say she was "embarrassed over the situation.")

The camera -- which panned on her smiling face when her first mentioned the 20-year-old star -- zoomed in on her less-than-pleased reaction.

Fox, the network that aired the Teen Choice Awards, cut the clip from Monday's show.

After the show on Sunday, Cook told Access Hollywood that the joke was a late addition to his bit.

"That's the best part about being a comic when you go, 'Maybe I can say the thing that everybody is kind of feeling and nobody [is saying].' The elephant in the room moment. So, I'll take it, I'll take the hit. It's okay."
