In an era when many child stars seem to self-destruct or fade into obscurity, Zac Efron is a Hollywood success story. From his earliest days as the adorable star of High School Musical to dramatic roles like his latest feature, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile, where he plays the notorious serial killer Ted Bundy, there seems to be nothing Efron can’t do. His romantic history is admirable as well, with no big scandals to speak of. Here’s the rundown on Zac Efron’s former girlfriends and where his relationship status stands currently.

Zac Efron’s past girlfriends

Efron’s first high-profile girlfriend and his single longest relationship to date was with his High School Musical co-star Vanessa Hudgens. They began dating in 2006 and stayed together for four years, a very long time considering their young ages. They announced that they were splitting in 2010 but fans of the franchise remain hopeful that one day, they will reunite.

Throughout late 2012 and early 2013, Efron dated Phil Collin’s daughter, the beautiful model Lily Collins. They never really confirmed their relationship to the press and were only spotted together once or twice. By 2014, Efron had moved on to Halston Sage, his co-star in Neighbors, the comedy film he made with Seth Rogen. They were very private and similar to Efron’s relationship with Collins, never confirmed or denied that they were dating. In addition, during this time, Efron was photographed with Fast and Furious star Michelle Rodriguez, and speculation started that the two were having a fling.

By late 2014, Efron had seemingly broken things off with Sage and had taken up with a beautiful model. Sami Miro seemed to be the perfect match for Efron, as she shared his viewpoints about relationships needing to stay out of the public eye. In a 2015 interview, the model explained that even though she’s a private person, she doesn’t try to hide anything that’s going on in her life and that her social media accounts reflect that. 

Who is Zac Efron with now?

Sadly, the model and the actor’s relationship didn’t last, and in 2016, the two broke things off. Efron spent some time out of the public dating scene, but by 2018, he was back in the headlines. Efron and his Baywatch co-star, Alexandra Daddario, started getting spotted together on various outings, and sources claimed that they were seriously dating. 

While Efron made several appearances on Daddario’s social media accounts, they never confirmed a relationship publicly, true to his form. Just as quickly as the relationship seemed to appear, it might have dissolved just as fast. Supposedly, Efron is currently single once again, although perhaps not for long. Fans started fantasizing about Efron potentially dating another Disney Channel darling in early February, although the reasoning behind the speculation is flimsy indeed.

The first week of February, eagle-eyed fans noticed that Zac Efron started following Selena Gomez on Instagram. While there might not be anything to the social media follow at all, initiating a relationship of any sort via social media is one known way to strike up a connection. To add fuel to the fire, Selena Gomez is known to be single, and since Efron is single as well, fans had a field day imagining the pairing that could be in the works. Plus, since Efron has a pattern of dating people he’s worked with, Gomez’s association with the Disney Channel might just be enough to spark a connection that could mean true love for both of them. Only time will tell, but Zac Efron’s legions of loyal fans and followers are already on the lookout for what’s next for the potential pair.
