Vanessa Anne Hudgens was born on December 14, 1988. Vanessa Hudgens is an actress and singer who debuted in the adolescent drama film “Thirteen” in 2003. She did not become a renowned name until she starred as Gabriella Montez in “High School Musical.”
Hudgens began her career as a vocalist in musical theater in 1998, appearing in shows such as The Wizard of Oz, Carousel, The Music Man, The King and I, Cinderella, and many others. She started applying for advertisements and television programs two years after her debut in stage plays. Her family relocated to Los Angeles when she earned a position in a tv commercial. She started performing at the age of 15 and visited “Orange County High School of the Arts” for a short time before homeschooling with tutors.
Though Vanessa Hudgens has not engaged in many relationships in the past, she has ended up spending 14 years of her life in one. Vanessa Hudgen’s dating background suggests she is a long-term relationship type of girl, from her five-year relationship with Zac Efron to her nine-year partnership with Austin Butler (with one shocking fling in between), and she is allegedly unmarried for the first time in a long time after that. Hudgens said in November 2018 to Women’s Health that she does not need a partner, but she enjoys having one. “I am very self-reliant, but it’s nice to have a best friend you can share victories with as well as losses,” she remarked. It is quite relatable.
Hudgens fueled dating speculations with Lakers power player Kyle Kuzma when they were photographed having dinner together in January 2020, according to TMZ, after her apparent break-up with Butler. After the supposed date night, unfortunately, nothing further was heard about the prospective new pair, and Hudgens has been happily single ever since. (Both Kuzma and Hudgens’ representatives have been contacted for comment on the alleged date, Kuzma’s representative refused to comment, and Hudgens’ representatives did not react.) These are some of Hudgens’ other suitors throughout the years.
As per Efron’s interview with The Hollywood Reporter in April 2014, Hudgens and Efron initially met in 2005 while preparing for High School Musical. The two were teamed together to read a part, and Disney even provided a film from their tryout so you can see for yourself how well they go along. Though they did not go official with their romance until 2006, the pair started dating privately in 2005, as Hudgens acknowledged on the Awards Chatter podcast of The Hollywood Reporter in April 2019, revealing they met at the “very beginning” of HSM.
While shooting HSM2 and HSM3, the two continue their dating. On the other hand, Hudgens said in July 2009 that an engagement was not imminent. She says that she believes marriage and establishing a family are wonderful. But she was too focused on her profession then, which is why such a plan did not even cross her mind. The couple’s break-up was announced in December 2010. According to E! News at the time, it was not a big deal, and there was no involvement of a third party in this break-up.
In March 2011, Hudgens told Shape about the split, claiming that the relationship “was a good thing,” but that long-distance relationship made the situation too tough. Fans anticipated seeing Efron and Hudgens reunite following their rumored separation, but it seems Efron is already dating another Vanessa. He and aspiring actress Vanessa Valladares allegedly struck it off after dating at a restaurant in Byron Bay, Australia. Although they have not acknowledged their relationship, it seems to be promising. (sources attempted to contact Valladares and a representative of Efron about the rumored relationship at that time but received no response.)
After her break-up with Efron in December 2010, Hudgens began dating actor Josh Hutcherson, whom she met on the production of “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island,” according to the Daily Mail. According to a source, Hudgens was said to be “smitten” during an after-party following the opening of her film “Beastly” in February 2011. According to the insider, their hands were wrapped around one other, and they were pretty intimate together.
Their split was painfully disclosed during a joint appearance with TODAY in January 2012, while it is unclear how long they dated. Hutcherson said he did not remember how long they had been together. Hutcherson further added, “We’re not… No. We were at one point, but she broke my heart. I’m just kidding. That was a while ago. We’re just really good friends now.”
Hudgens also seems to be the one who broke up the relationship. Hutcherson mentioned a break-up in an earlier interview with Seventeen in October 2013. Although he did not mention any names of individuals, it appeared that he was referring to Hudgens.
Despite meeting actor Austin Butler in 2005 while dating Efron, Hudgens and Butler did not begin dating till September 2011. The rumor began when they were seen together at a birthday celebration of Jennifer, their common friend Ashley Tisdale’s sister. According to a source, “It isn’t a serious thing at all.” The source further added that she enjoyed hooking up with him, but no formal relationship was established. The pair made their red carpet appearance at the launch of “Journey 2” in February 2012, and they allegedly piled on the PDA at Coachella a few months later.
After three years of dating, Hudgens declared their relationship in August 2014 with a sentimental birthday post for Butler. In this post, she said that Butler was the love of her life. During an appearance with Entertainment Tonight a year later, she spoke about their relationship, stating it was “important to put that other person first.” Following that, the two began to post more about their love on social media.
After more than six years of relationship, people speculated that the two could be engaged after Hudgens uploaded a photo of herself wearing a ring on her ring finger in December 2017. Hudgens brushed it off and said flatly that she was “not engaged.” Over the following two years, Vanessa and Butler continued to share loving photos of one other on social media until January 2020. The word of the couple’s rumored break-up surfaced only weeks after Hudgens talked about her romance in a Cosmopolitan UK article.
Though the two have yet to acknowledge their split, Hudgens did upload an Instagram video on February 14 wishing herself a good Valentine’s Day.
Hudgens and Butler, who started dating in September 2011, announced their break-up on January 14. Hudgens attended the red carpet for the opening of her latest action film, “Bad Boys For Life,” on the same day, and she was obviously alone. Fans have noted that the two have been missing from each other’s social media profiles in recent months, particularly over the holidays. In the most recent picture, Hudgens uploaded with Butler on Halloween, Hudgens and Butler were still together. They last went to an event together in August 2019, at the Unicef Summer Gala.
After that, Vanessa Hudgens is stirring relationship speculations with NBA star Kyle Kuzma, only a week after word surfaced that she and longtime boyfriend Austin Butler had called it quits.
According to Hollywoodlife, Hudgens and Kuzma met recently at a Lakers game.
The 31-year-old artist and 24-year-old player look to be having a candlelight supper at Lilia, a popular Italian cafe in Brooklyn, New York, in photographs originally published by TMZ.
The couple sat at a modest table for two and looked to be enjoying their dinner with a bottle of wine. After some of the social media postings, several fans speculated on whether Hudgens and Kuzma were dating.
Vanessa’s current boyfriend is Cole Tucker, and the two seem to be happy than ever. On Valentine’s Day 2021, Vanessa uploaded a picture of the two kissings and captioned it, “It is you, it is me, it is us.” Cole is a professional baseball player for the “Pittsburgh Pirates” as a shortstop and outfielder. On April 22, the MLB star uploaded a series of lovely images with friends and family, especially with Vanessa, demonstrating how close the two have become since they were first caught getting intimate in November 2020.
In April, a source revealed that Cole loves Vanessa and treats her like a queen. Initially, many were distrustful of him, but he has been dead serious about her since the beginning, and that has not changed. It is wonderful that he loves her and always declares her to be his ideal lady.
