There have been celebrity relationships that have taken Hollywood and the world by storm. It’s always a field day for reporters, gossip bloggers, and fans when two celebrities enter a relationship.
Very good examples of these high-profile relationships are Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears, Chris Brown and Rihanna, and many others.
There are also celebrity relationships that are kept low-profile, although this is very difficult to pull off.
One couple that pulled it off was Vanessa Hudgens and Josh Hutcherson, who revealed later on in their careers that they briefly dated each other. Today, Hutcherson and Hudgens are friends and in happy relationships with other people.
Regardless, it’s shocking that these two huge celebrity names could pull off a secret relationship. How and when? What happened? Their fans have asked so many questions about their relationships, and we have the answers. Read on to find out more.
When Did Hudgens & Hutcherson Start Dating?
Hudgens first rose to fame for her role on the Disney channel’s “High school Musical” as the character of Gabriella Montez. The first “High School Musical” movie was a smash hit that made Hudgens a household name.
The fame soared to new heights when she and co-star Zac Efron began dating. It seemed like fans could not get enough of their relationship. Sadly, this relationship that went on for about five years ended in 2010.
Hudgens starred in another major film, “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island,” with Hutcherson and Dwayne Johnson. During this time, she and Hutcherson began their secret relationship and never hinted or revealed anything to their fans and press.
It wasn’t until they broke up after filming had concluded that they revealed that they dated. Many of their fans went wild, and it became a big story in Hollywood, as not many celebrities have been able to pull off a secret relationship, especially with the level of popularity at Hudgens and Hutcherson’s disposal.
Hutcherson Said Hudgens Broke His Heart
Speculations circulated on social media, but it fizzled out in no time for lack of concrete evidence. So, imagine how shocked fans and the press were when these rumors were proven true.
The ex-lovers finally admitted during an interview for Australia’s TODAY magazine that they dated. This report came through Buzzfeed.
In the interview, Hutcherson responded to a question from the interviewer about the status and nature of his relationship with Hudgens by saying, “we’re not dating… We were, but she broke my heart!” Immediately, he laughed and explained that he was just kidding about the ‘broken heart’ part.
He noted that they are just “really good friends,” to which Hudgens gave him a friendly smile. Many supporters took this interaction as a sign that there was no bad blood between the two.
Hudgens Has Been In Two Relationships Since The Breakup
Many suggestions sprung up when Hudgens arrived at the premiere of “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island” with “Carrie Diaries” star Austin Butler. However, just like she did with her relationship with Hutcherson, the “Princess Switch” actress never revealed anything until more than two years later, during the summer of 2014.
She acknowledged the relationship in a cute birthday post she made for his birthday in which she called him “the love of my life.” The two dated until early in 2020, when they ended their romance just before their ninth anniversary.
Hudgens is now dating baseball pro-athlete Cole Tucker and has been very public about their relationship. The “Princess Switch” actress made their relationship Instagram official with a post on Valentine’s day. The post was captioned, “It’s you, it’s me, it’s us.”
She has also attended many of his baseball games and regularly posts selfies of them.
Hutcherson Is Now With Claudia Traisac
After his split from Hudgens, Hutcherson was reportedly in relationships with actresses Franca Raisa and then Chloe Bridges before he was finally linked to Claudia Traisac, his co-star from “Escobar: Paradise Lost.”
Several reports about his relationship with Traisac went viral, which he finally confirmed in an interview with E! News in 2015. The “Hunger Games” star noted that his relationship with Traisac “is pretty good,” however, distance has been a troubling factor, but they are “making it work.”
It’s safe to say that the pair enjoy their privacy, and that’s why they keep their relationship on a tight leash.
Now, fans wonder if the duo will soon start making plans to settle down, but as usual, that information will be released when the couple feels like it.
