Let's be real: Zac Efron is a catch. Ever since he caught our eye in High School Musical in 2006, we've been obsessed with him and basically every romantic partner he has ever had.
In early 2021, news broke that he and model Vanessa Valladares had called it quits. While we were sad for them, we were also happy that it gave us at least a 0.00001 percent chance to win him over. But obviously, someone like Zac doesn't stay single for long. In fact, he may have already landed himself another boo.
Is Zac Efron dating 'Selling Sunset' star Amanza Smith? Here's what we know.
In December 2021, Amanza Smith was spotted in Las Vegas with her Selling Sunset co-stars Mary Fitzgerald and Heather Rae Young. While Mary and Heather were accompanied by their husbands, Amanza was seen cozying up with someone, too: MR. ZAC EFRON. Heather's husband, Tarek El Moussa, shared a photo of the six of them on Instagram. And as I'm sure you're all aware, celebrities cannot just hang out without us all questioning whether they're romantically involved.
According to TMZ, unnamed sources say Zac and Amanza are just friends. However, we'll wait for them to directly address these rumors. After all, they do look pretty happy in Tarek's photo.
Zac Efron dated model Vanessa Valladares in 2020 and 2021.
Before the Amanza rumors started, Zac dated a woman named Vanessa Valladares. The pair met in Australia in June 2020, according to People, while she was working at the Byron Bay General Store & Cafe. But Vanessa wasn't just your average waitress. She was also a model who had worked for a number of Australian brands including Love St. and Of the Sun.
In April 2021, Zac broke things off with her. "It just didn't feel right to him anymore," a source told People.
While that's the only known information about their relationship, an old Instagram comment made fans question the length of their romance.
Get this: Back in 2017, Vanessa posted the above bikini pic. The following year, someone posted a comment that reads, "Take care god bless you and zac.xx." It's not clear if the Zac mentioned here is Efron, but if so, that could mean they dated for years before we knew about the relationship.
Zac Efron also dated fellow actress Halston Sage.
Prior to dating Vanessa, Zac dated Halston Sage, an actress from Los Angeles. You may recognize her from Grown Ups 2, Poker Night, The Bling Ring, Neighbors, Paper Towns, Goosebumps, Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse, and Late Night. She has also appeared in a slew of TV shows, including Crisis, Magnum P.I., and — wait for it — Victorious. We don't know when or why they broke things off, but hey, it happens.
Zac reportedly dated Olympic swimmer Sarah Bro in 2019.
Before meeting Halston, Zac was in a year-long relationship with Olympic swimmer Sarah Bro. The two reportedly dated for a little less than a year, but apparently, there was trouble in paradise; a source reportedly told Us Weekly that things started to fizzle out after she returned to Los Angeles. Oh well.
It seems like neither of them was too broken up about it at the time, though, which is definitely good news.
Want more of Zac's extensive dating history?
Let's be real: Zac has dated quite a long list of ladies... but no shame there — we totally get it. Before he began dating Sarah, he was apparently exclusive with his Baywatch co-star Alexandra Daddario, per People. They denied the rumors, but were reportedly spotted on a shopping spree together in August 2018.
Zac also reportedly dated model Sami Miro for almost two years until April 2016, as well as Michelle Rodriguez in 2014. Not to mention that he was linked to Lily Collins in 2012 and 2013. And, of course, Zac dated Vanessa Hudgens on the set of HSM, which was probably the highlight of all of our childhoods.
Well, it looks like Zac definitely has his head in the dating game, but will he ever settle down? Who can say? We just hope whoever he's with makes him happy.
