Vanessa says she was ‘mean’ during relationship with Zac Efron

Vanessa Hudgens has admitted that she became ‘mean’ during her relationship with her High School Musical co-star, Zac Efron.

Zac and Vanessa dated for five years from 2005 until 2010 but has been dating Austin Butler since 2011.

The actress, who currently holds the star role in the Broadway production of Gigi has admitted that the female attention given to Zac during their relationship made things very difficult for the couple: “I went through a phase when I was really mean because I was so fed up. Girls were running after him, and I was giving them death stares.”

Thankfully, Vanessa soon saw her behaviour wouldn’t get her anywhere with Zac’s fans and soon changed her ways: “Then I realised that not what that’s about. Spread the love, be a good person, they support you, be nice.”

It sounds like it's hard dating a Hollywood actor – even if you're an actress yourself.
