Red Carpet Confidential: Vanessa Hudgens Opens Up About Selena Gomez Friendship, ‘High School Musical’ Reunion
Vanessa Hudgens is pleased that she can help younger pal Selena Gomez as she navigates life after her breakup with Justin Bieber.
The Disney darlings co-star together in Spring Breakers, and teamed up for girl time with Ashley Tisdale after the Golden Globes earlier this month.
“That girl is so smart, beautiful, talented and amazing,” Vanessa, 24, says of Selena, 20, Thursday when JCPenney and Nanette Lepore launch L’Amour by Nanette Lepore at Good Units at the Hudson Hotel in NYC. “She’s got such a great head on her shoulders. I’m just there to hold her hand and have fun with her. I just adore her.”

Of course, Vanessa knows what it’s like to endure a split with a heartthrob under the harsh spotlight. She and High School Musical co-star Zac Efron were an item from 2006-2010.

Still, their breakup doesn’t mean she’s soured on getting the gang back together for another High School Musical sequel — perhaps a High School Musical Reunion!
“I mean, that would be awesome,” she says with a laugh. “I love those guys so much. Those were a few of the most fondest memories of my life. It was amazing!”
She adds, “I love musicals. I wouldn’t mind doing another one.”
Inside the event, Vanessa pals around with Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell, plus designer Nanette Lepore, her daughter Violet, and Alexandra Richards, who DJs. Good times!
