Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens
Oh, Zanessa. The most iconic of teen celebrity relationships – arguably, of course. Zac and Vanessa became household names at the launch of their breakout movie High School Musical, and the fact that the Disney Channel stars were a couple on and off-screen just made them seriously ship-worthy. The adorable duo met way back in 2005 during their HSM audition, and the story is even more romantic than Troy and Gabriella's New Year's Eve "love at first sight" moment during karaoke.
Zac explained in an interview, "My mom dropped me off out of a minivan somewhere in North Hollywood. I had no idea what to expect. There were about 40 guys. 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. And next came the scene-reading sections, and I got paired with Vanessa Hudgens."
Can you hear that? Those are my sobs. OK, now I totally get that Vanessa and Austin Butler are in a very happy relationship. I legitimately think they bring out the best in each other and are too amazingly attractive to even look at. However, the truest version of myself is the HSM-obsessed middle schooler that I once was. And in my opinion, the truest versions of Zac and Vanessa make up, well, Zanessa. I could be totally wrong here, but there is something so pure about this pairing that makes me believe they'll one day find their way back to each other singing, "You are the music in me."
