  • So sad

    Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens, aka Troy Bolton and Gabriella Montez, were one of our favourite A-list couples back in the day. Our favourite high school (musical) sweethearts broke a million hearts around the world when they split back in 2010.

    The pair met in 2005 on the set of the first High School Musical movie and were together for five years. In case you missed it, here are all the High School Musical 4 rumours we know so far.

    Now, Vanessa Hudgens has spoken out about why exactly it was that they split – and it seems like their fame had a little something to do with it.

    She told Sugarscape: ‘I went through a phase when I was really mean because I was so fed up. Girls were running after [Zac], and I was giving them death stares. Then I realised that’s not what that’s about.’ Eventually the relationship had to end because it wasn’t bringing out the best in her, which is totally understandable.

    We were pretty sad when the two decided to go their separate ways, but it seems like it was the right call for the pair.
