Vanessa Hudgens shares about her past relationship with actor Zac Efron. Hudgens says it sometimes looked better on screen.
The actress/singer,talked about the jealousy she went through while dating her High School Musical sweetheart, 27, who was swamped with female attention.
“I went through a phase when I was really mean because I was so fed up,” Hudgens admitted in a New York Times article Sunday.
“Girls were running after him, and I was giving them death stares. Then I realized that’s not what that’s about,” she continued.
However, Hudgens has a new golden rule for herself when it comes to respecting those around her: “Spread the love, be a good person, they support you, be nice,” she said.
She and Efron parted ways in 2010. Now, Hudgens is dating and living with actor-model Austin Butler, 23, according to the New York Times.
Meanwhile, what’s keeping the actress busy these days is ‘Gigi’ a stage adaptation of Colette’s 1945 novel, making it her Broadway debut.
“It’s been a lot of fun prepping for Gigi … allowing myself to be as free as possible. I love this character, the music and play so much,” Hudgens told PEOPLE in November.
You can catch ‘Gigi’ on April 8 at the Neil Simon Theatre in New York City.
