Does Ugly Betty star Vanessa Williams believe beauty is only skin deep? Just ask her old Broadway co-stars.

“She’s just really generous, and that stuff works,” says Jennifer Malenke, a judge on the reality competition High School Musical: Get in the Picture, who starred with Vanessa in the 2002 revival of the fairy-tale inspired show.

Former Miss America Vanessa has been an official ‘face’ of the formula, along with Diddy, Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Simpson and Kelly Clarkson, since October 2007.
