A look at Vanessa Hudgens’ dating history, now engaged
Alexa, play That Should Be Me by Justin Bieber
Let’s be honest, everyone saw the awkward moment when Vanessa Hudgens walked past Austin Butler at the Oscars and ignored him. It was pretty iconic of her, but now everyone is talking about who she’s with now.
Hearts everywhere were broken when she and Austin announced their split in 2020, but now they’re both in new, happy relationships, but before all of that, Vanessa Hudgens had some pretty high-profile relationships of her own.
Here’s a look at Vanessa Hudgens’ interesting dating history now that she’s engaged to Cole Tucker.
Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens were the couple in the past. After playing each other in High School Musical, the pair had a relationship after the camera stopped rolling.
Vanessa credits Zac with helping her navigate fame after their overnight success in Disney Channel movies. They were together for five years, but their relationship finally ended in 2010 after it “ran”.
A source close to the couple told E News, “It’s nothing dramatic. There are no third parties involved. They had been together for so long. He just ran his way.”
One man who might throw you off Vanessa Hudgens’ dating history is Josh Hutcherson. After her relationship with Zac Efron ended, Vanessa got together with Josh Hutcherson in 2011. They both starred in the adventure film Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and indirectly announced their split while promoting the film.
One of Vanessa Hudgens’ relationships that everyone was so desperate to have was her relationship with Austin Butler. Their relationship was confirmed when they arrived together at the film premiere of Journey 2: The Mysterious Island in 2012. Despite not officially confirming their relationship until 2014, when Vanessa called Austin the love of her life, they were together for eight years.
In January 2020, Austin and Vanessa announced that they had broken up, leaving everyone devastated. A source close to the former couple told People: “They loved each other very much and went through the hardest times of their lives together. A busy work schedule and travel definitely put a strain on the relationship. They were a wonderful couple and they really say it didn’t work out.”
Austin and Vanessa didn’t talk about their breakup until two years later, in 2022. In an interview with GQ, Austin said: “Life is full of change and you have to find a way to keep evolving and growing. .”
Vanessa told Nylon later that year that her memoir would be “fascinating” following her “two very long life-changing relationships.”
Vanessa is currently engaged to American baseball player Cole Tucker. People started speculating that they were dating in November 2020 after they were together. The couple is in a Zoom meditation group, according to Hudgens. In February 2021, Cole told reporters that he was in love.
On The Drew Barrymore Show, Vanessa said: “If I want something or someone, I go after them. I totally slid into his DMs and said, “Hey, nice to meet you.” So I think there’s no shame in taking the first step.”
