Why Vanessa Hudgens & Zac Efron Have Lasted So Long

By: / June 30, 2010

In a world where Young Hollywood couples don’t last longer than a Disney Channel film, Vanessa Hudgens and boyfriend Zac Efron have become an anomaly by sticking together for many years.

Vanessa and Zac have been dating since 2005 when the two met while auditioning for High School Musical. According to Vanessa, getting together before both of their careers took off has helped the young couple stay together:

We got lucky because we started off together, so I think people like us because they fell in love with our characters. Right off the bat, we had a connection. I think everybody could see it. When we had our audition, they paired us together. And he was adorable. I mean, he wasn’t the guy that he is today. Like, he had a gap in his teeth. He was a whole different person.

Well, it is good that Vanessa stuck with Zac during his awkward phase because he quickly transformed into a megastud.
