15 Photos Of Vanessa Hudgens And Austin Butler That Will Make You Believe In Love

by Mary Kate Hoban

Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler are one adorable couple and they keep a fairly low profile by Hollywood standards.

The 28-year-old "High School Musical" alum and 25-year-old "Zoey 101" star were first spotted together back in 2011 and have been going strong for almost six years now.

SIX YEARS! That's like a lifetime.

Hudgens, who recently announced she will be co-hosting the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, May 21, alongside Ludacris, spoke to People in March about how tough long-distance relationships can be (Butler has been filming TV show The Shannara Chronicles in New Zealand) and how they make theirs work.

She shared,

I think that if anything's bothering you, don't hold it in. Always bring it up and just talk about it. Uncensor yourself and just be open.

Thanks for the tip, Vanessa. It's refreshing to see a Hollywood couple navigate a long-distance relationship and seemingly stay just as in love as ever. You're giving us all the goals, you guys!

In celebration of their love, I've rounded up 15 photos of Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler over the years.

4. They aren't afraid to get goofy in the streets, though.

5. And their sweetest photos appear on each other's social media accounts.


Hudgens captioned this snapshot for her boyfriend's birthday and wrote,

Yesterday was the love of my life's birthday. Happy birthday to the man with the kindest heart, beautiful soul, crazy talent and best looks I've ever seen. He never stops inspiring me in every aspect of life and always lifts those around him up higher. I thank god so greatly for blessing the world 23 years ago by creating Austin Butler.

6. The Coachella queen found herself a perfect festival partner in Austin.

7. They only have eyes for each other in this black-and-white photo Hudgens posted to Instagram when she was missing her man.

8. Even when they're in Africa and there's a lion in the background, they can't take their eyes off each other.


9. Vanessa, along with her sister, Stella, welcomed Austin to Instagram in September 2015 with a sweet selfie.


Vanessa wrote,

If you want to see a refreshingly beautiful IG follow him nowww. He's much cooler than I am.

14. And Sedona.


15. And finally, here's Vanessa showing off how much she misses her man when they're apart with a PDA-filled shot she posted in March.

Vanessa and Austin, we can't get enough of you two. Here's hoping Austin has time off to watch his girlfriend host the Billboard Music Awards this Sunday.

Selfishly, we all want to see you two walk the red carpet.
