Vanessa Hudgens has reportedly moved on from ex-boyfriend Zac Efron with a new man: Actor Josh Hutcherson. Who is this handsome young man that has reportedly caught VHud’s eye and how did he snag one of the prettiest young women in Hollywood? Celebuzz has answers to your all your burning questions.

Where Is Josh from?

The 18-year-old actor hails from Union, Kentucky where he grew up with big dreams of becoming an actor. Josh started auditioning for roles when he was just 9-years-old and has already created an impressive resume that includes over ten films and guests spots on ER and The Division.

Wait, isn’t Josh the kid from The Kids Are All Right?


Yes! Josh played Laser, the young son of Annette Bening and Julianne Moore‘s characters who wants his sister (Mia Wasikowska) to help him find their biological father. The Kids Are All Right was nominated for several awards in the past few months so that probably explains why Josh took Vanessa as his date to the Independent Spirit Film Awards on Saturday, February 26.

Watch the trailer for The Kids Are All Right below.

How did Vanessa and Josh meet?

The pair met while filming Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, which is currently being filmed. Apparently the pair became friendly on set and Vanessa is reportedly “smitten” with her hunky new co-star. Vanessa even took Josh to the Beastly premiere and the couple were spotted snuggling throughout the night.

How does Josh compare to Zac?

Well, of course, no one can compare to Zac but the two are both talented young actors – Zac is merely a bigger star than Josh. Unlike Zac, Josh has been avoiding the teen hunk route to fame and has instead selected lots of bit roles in critically-acclaimed films like The Kids Are All Right.
