Back in January, Vanessa Hudgens lost her father to a battle with stage 4 cancer. Now, three months later, the actress has opened up about the death.

"It sucks, but death happens," said Hudgens told People Magazine. "It never makes it easier but it happens to all of us. It's just something we have to get through until we all meet again in heaven."

Hudgens later added, "Life is about perspective. The way you choose to see your life is the way your life is going to become."
