As we all recover from the news that Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler broke up after nine years together, please find solace in the hopes that there's a slight chance she could reunite with her other High School Musical co-star and former boyfriend of five years, Zac Efron.
Those who were glued to Disney Channel throughout their entire adolescence will remember that before Vanessa met Austin on the set of the popular Disney trilogy, it was her and Zac who sat courtside, went to Coachella, and walked red carpets together. And now that Austin and Vanessa are done, Twitter is dying for Zanessa to reunite because while he's not dating any of us (sadly), Zac is very much single. Also, there was no bad blood between them when they broke up in 2010, so no need to worry about anything super messy or complicated in their relationship. 2020 might actually throw us a bone!
And yeah, yeah, we all just want Vanessa to be happy and do whatever she thinks is best, but the thought of having Vanessa and Zac star in another "Say OK" video is enough to get me tweeting on that bird website.
But as a fresh page turns in our collective Vanessa and Zac fan fiction, remember that she once looked annoyed when someone asked her about Zac and said she "completely lost contact with him," so try to manage your expectations. That said, the cool thing about life people can always change and reconnect and slide into someone's DMs at a moment's notice!
