When Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler broke up January, fans hoped for a Zanessa reunion. Sorry to disappoint, fans, but it doesn’t look like that will happen, as Zac Efron’s girlfriend in 2020 is Halston Sage and not his ex-girlfriend. Though Efron has been private about his love life since his years-long relationship with Hudgens ended in April 2016, fans have been curious about who he’s dating, especially after his Netflix series, Down to Earth, premiered in July 2020.
The series follows Efron, along with wellness entrepreneur Darin Olien, as they travel around the world to places like France, Puerto Rico, London, Iceland, Costa Rica, Peru and Sardinia and learn about nature, green energy and sustainable living. Though Efron doesn’t talk much about his personal life in the docuseries, that didn’t stop fans from wondering who he’s dating now. In an April 2017 interview with Cosmopolitan, Efron opened up about how he’s now ready to settle down as he enters his 30s. “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,” he said at the time. “I’m realizing that you have to find your own happiness before you can make somebody else happy.”

Who is Zac Efron’s girlfriend Halston sage, you ask? Well, she’s also an actor who was born and raised in Los Angeles. Her most recognizable films are 2013’s The Bling Ring and Grown Ups 2, 2014’s Neighbors (where she met Efron), 2015’s Paper Towns and 2019’s The Last Summer and Dark Phoenix. She’s also starred in TV shows including a 2011 episode of Victorious and a 2019 episode of Magnum P.I.

In an interview with As If magazine in 2019, Sage opened up about how she started acting. “I wanted to act my entire life.

Luckily, a pilot I shot later that same year got picked up, so working as an actress happened very quickly for me and I’ve been acting ever since.”
As for what she likes the most about acting, Sage told the publication: “I love storytelling. There are two reasons I watch a TV show or a movie: to escape from the reality of the world and my present situation, or to relate to another human experience and feel less alone.”
