We're all in this together.
Since their split in 2010 however, both Vanessa and Zac have remained relatively tight-lipped about the relationship, something that changed this week as the HSM actress got candid about her former love during a recent appearance on the Awards Chatter podcast.
‘It started off really organically,’ Vanessa explained. ‘I could not have been more grateful to have that relationship at the time.’
Speaking about the rollercoaster that was High School Musical, she continued: ‘It was this massive phenomenon and [all] eyes were on me. And it’s just a really weird foreign thing to go through. And by being in a relationship, it kind of kept me stabilized and grounded, and I had someone to lean on who was going through it as well.’
‘I pride myself on being a professional,’ Vanessa concluded. ‘So I was like that aside we are going to move forward and do what we need to do. And we sorted it all out. I think because I was so young, I think that relationship stabilized me.’
We love Zac and Vanessa but we guess they ‘had to go their own way’.
