Does Zac Efron have a girlfriend and who is he dating? Here's a look inside the 'Down To Earth' star's relationship history.
From starring as Troy Bolton in High School Musical – where he met now-ex Vanessa Hudgens – to becoming a heartthrob in Hollywood, his dating history has been the envy of a serious amount of girls around the world!
But who else has he dated? And does he have a girlfriend now?
Here's the lowdown on Zac's relationship history and exes...
Zac first met model Vanessa in June 2020 while she was working at the Byron Bay General Store & Café in Australia.
A short month later, their blossoming friendship turned romantic with a source telling Us in September 2020 that “things moved quickly” and that they were both “very smitten with each other.”
33-year-old Zac dated the 25-year-old Aussie model for 10 months, eventually splitting in April 2021 reportedly after he discovered she's set to star in reality series Byron Baes.
The Bad Neighbors actress was linked to Zac Efron after they played boyfriend and girlfriend in the 2014 movie starring Seth Rogan, Rose Byrne, Dave Franco and more.
Rumours started when the pair attended a few of the same events together, however things seemed to have fizzled out after a few months.
They reignited romance rumours in late 2019, with a source telling Us Weekly in January 2020 that "they are in a serious relationship and in love," however, sixth months later he began dating Vanessa.
Zac and Sarah first sparked dating rumours in January 2019, when they were spotted attending an exercise class together in LA.
Two months later, news broke that they were, in fact, boyfriend and girlfriend, however, they went on to split in January 2020, with Zac going on to rekindle his romance with Halston.
In February 2019, fans speculated that Hollywood actor Zac Efron was dating pop sensation Selena Gomez after he followed the 'Rare' songstress on Instagram (because that means you're in a relationship, right??).
However, a source told Us Weekly at the time: “Selena is focusing on her mental health and has been reading, exercising, eating well and spending time with her close friends and family.
“She isn’t necessarily looking to date right now,” they added.
Having worked closely together on the set of The Greatest Showman, Zac took to Instagram to praise his co-star, sharing a picture of the two of them embracing in costume, writing: "A pic is worth a thousand words. Only ones I can think of now are: wtf were u thinking dude? Look at her [sic]".
Just a couple of days later, Zac posted another pic of Rebecca and wrote: "I finally looked" with a series of heart-eye Emojis.
The pair never confirmed or denied their alleged romance.
Following the release of the Baywatch reboot in 2017, fans speculated that Zac Efron was dating co-star Alexandra Daddario (okay, we're spotting a theme here).
However, Daddario dismissed the claims, stating: "I don't know that I started it.
"We work together closely; he's my love interest in the film. I understand why people would go crazy over something like that, but Zac and I are very good friends."
Zac broke a lot of hearts when he went off the market for a whole two years after settling down with businesswoman and designer, Sami Miro.
They first started dating in October 2014 with Sami describing her relationship with Zac to Elle, at the time, as "definitely different".
They went on to call it quits in April 2016.
Zac and Lily were first romantically linked way back in 2013 when they were apparently spotted holding hands in Disneyland, but they never addressed rumours of their relationship.
The pair reportedly rekindled their flame while working on Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile together, but it wasn't meant to be.
However, the pair only dated for a short three months, with a source telling Us Weekly at the time: "They're no longer together.
“They were never serious, though; it was just a casual thing and it fizzled. They were never in the same place at the same time."
Okay, so this one we can confirm.
Not only did Zac and Vanessa play on-screen lovers Gabriella and Troy in the High School Musical films, they dated IRL.
Sadly, our favourite Disney couple split in 2010 after five whole years.
