Let's talk relationships shall we? Between the years 2005-2010 many HSM fans dreams were coming true as Hudgens and Zac Efron were an item just like the characters they had played. The couple began dating during the filming (duh!) and were still together during the sequel. In 2009 a (sadly) false report was ran that they were engaged. Almost a full year later they called it quits. When they "went their separate ways" hearts around the world broke.

In 2011, Hudgens and actor Austin Butler began dating. The two reportedly also met on the set of High School Musical (because apparently that's where all love stories start?). Hudgens heart belonged to Efron at the time. Butler and Hudgens were together until the beginning of this year. This almost nine year long relationship reportedly ended due to long distance and busy schedules. They are supposedly still friends so there is still hope the two will get back together one day!

Hudgens has become crazy active on social media lately, blessing us all with hilariously relatable videos and pictures that are simply drool worthy.
