High school is officially over. It is my sad duty to report that all of us holding out hope that Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens will rekindle their love are just going to be let down.
Vanessa just confirmed that she and Zac haven't talked in a long time, and it doesn't look like they will in the foreseeable future.
This was not the "Breaking Free" I was hoping for from these two.
Vanessa appeared on "Access Hollywood" and, when asked about Zefron, she coolly said that she has no contact with her former boyfriend and co-star anymore.
I completely lost contact with him.
Though the Disney darlings were the hot couple to watch throughout all of the late 2000s, they split up in 2010 and have began branching off into more mature acting careers separately. Vanessa began taking on gritty, sexualized roles in movies like "Sucker Punch" and "Spring Breakers," before returning to a more mainstream career thanks to "Grease: Live" and her new show "Powerless."
As for Zac, after taking on a few wholesome, Disney-friendly roles in movies like "17 Again" and "Charlie St. Cloud," he shed his Disney image in favor of raunchy comedies like "Neighbors" and "Dirty Grandpa."
While their careers may be in different places now, I'm pretty confident that Disney fans will always know Zac and Vanessa as the high school sweethearts Troy Bolton and Gabriella Montez in "High School Musical." The young actors won over fans with their love both onscreen and off when the first movie came out in 2006.
They continued dating IRL and in two sequels for the following four years, but now that they've split up, they apparently have no contact with each other anymore. And it sure seems like Vanessa isn't the only member of the "High School Musical" cast that Zac has cut off — when the main cast had a 10-year reunion last year, Efron was notably absent.
I guess Zac is just too famous for his old high school friends? Never has Gabriella's iconic lament been more appropriate:
