Once upon a time, Zac Efron was one half of Hollywood golden couple Zanessa. Zac and Vanessa Hudgens made all High School Musical fans' dreams come true but taking their on-screen love story and turning it into a reality but after nearly five years together, they split. Since then, Zac has dated starlets like Lily Collins and Sami Miro, but he's currently single and has been for a while.
Vanessa on the other hand has been steadily dating Austin Butler since 2011 and while there's nothing wrong with living the single life, it seems like Zac is longing for something along the lines of a long-term relationship like his ex-girlfriend has found.
"I didn’t think much about settling down until recently. Now that I’m getting closer to my 30s, I’m around some great relationships and I’ve seen expert couples at work. I’m realizing that you have to find your own happiness before you can make somebody else happy," Zac said in Cosmopolitan's May 2017 issue.
Aww, Zac is all about that self-reflection and clearly ready to take the next step, you know, once he finds the right person. And who does he turns to when it's time to get some solid love advice? Well, it's none other than his younger brother, Dylan.
"If I’m dating someone, one of the few people I need to weigh in on the situation is my brother. We live together, and we’re different in a lot of ways, but he’s really grounded," Zac said. "He lived a more normal life than I did growing up, so he’s a great barometer for me. He'll be like, 'Are you sure you’re happy? Is this what you really want?' Having my little brother around is a really great thing."
OK, now that's just the sweetest. Also, let's just take note of the genes in this family because Zac and Dylan are both two beauties and sometimes, you just need to look at something pretty every now and then. Here's a photo that will be that for you:
Now back to your regularly scheduled story after that swoon-session. Maybe Dylan will be the one to help his big bro fall in love. He opinion does a mean a lot to Zac so playing matchmaker could totally happen. Zac will find an everlasting love like Troy and Gabriella's one day.
