“It started off really organically,” Vanessa said. “I could not have been more grateful to have that relationship at the time.”

“It was this massive phenomenon and all eyes were on me. And it’s just a really weird foreign thing to go through," she added. "And by being in a relationship, it kind of kept me stabilized and grounded, and I had someone to lean on who was going through it as well."

Vanessa also talked about one of the fights she and Zac got in on the HSM set, saying, “I remember one time we did have a fight and it was while we were at rehearsals, and I remember Kenny Ortega coming around the corner with the most concerned look on his face like, ‘Oh no, is our movie going to fall apart right?’”

“I pride myself on being a professional, so I was like 'That aside, we are going to move forward and do what we need to do.' And we sorted it all out. I think because I was so young, I think that relationship stabilized me.”

We are so glad that both these awesome humans who played such a big part of our pop culture history have come out the other end nailing it!
