It was in September 2011, however, when media outlets began speculating that the two had become an item after Butler was reportedly seen leaving Hudgens' house.Then, later that same month, Hudgens and Butler were spotted at Bob's Big Boy in Los Angeles sharing a milkshake, holding hands, and kissing, reported about how he and Hudgens keep their relationship strong.When Z and V first started dating, they were super young and not all teenage romances last into adulthood and well forever, although there are some that do too.
When she walks down the red carpet, it’s highly likely that Hudgens will be escorted by her boyfriend, Austin Butler.Zac explained to audition went and that it was the moment he was paired with Vanessa that changed everything. And we walked in, and [director] Kenny Ortega was there with a piano, and they put everybody in a room together, and we ran through different phases of what we would need to do -- first dancing, then singing -- and a few of us got tapped on the shoulder [to leave], and I didn't."My mom dropped me off out of a minivan somewhere in North Hollywood. And next came the scene-reading sections, and I got paired with Vanessa Hudgens," he explained. When some of the cast got together to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the first movies, with the first being shot in 2005 when they started their romance. With any breakup, there really isn't a clear-cut reason as to why exactly a relationship goes down in flames. "I went through a phase when I was really mean because I was so fed up.So what’s the star’s secret for making a long-distance relationship work?“Just communication, communication is key,” Hudgens tells PEOPLE at the King’s launch pop-up in New York City on Wednesday night.There was a rumor that circulated in 2009 that Zac had actually popped the question to V while they apparently were on a trip to Japan together, but that was never proven to be true. "First love is so exciting, you kind of fall head over heels and it's one of those things that it becomes the most important thing in the world, that's all you think about. And he has been linked to his co-star Alexandra Daddario although that seemed to all just be rumors and fans' wishful thinking.This said rumor came courtesy of asked the starlet who her celebrity crush was when she was a teenager and she had no problem bringing up her ex-bae. The closest we'll ever get to seeing them even hanging out together again is when someone decides to work a little Photoshop magic."It's important to put that other person first," the actor shared."If you're constantly looking for ways that you can make them happy, and they're constantly looking for ways that they can make you happy, then you kind of lift each other up as much as possible and you can’t go wrong." that her and Butler’s relationship can be "very long-distance" at times, but that the key to success, for them, was communication.And I say "highly likely" because although Butler isn’t nominated or confirmed as an attendee, it’s sort of impossible to imagine that he wouldn’t be present to support Hudgens as she co-hosts the show for the first time.Especially considering the fact that although the two aren’t married, they’re in a serious, long-term relationship, and have reportedly been together for nearly six years.
