It seems like it was just yesterday Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens knew this could be the start of something new.
And seven years ago, they called it quits after dating for about four years, shattering our hearts forever.
The two met in 2005 on the set of the Disney Channel movie High School Musical, which saw them play couple Troy and Gabriella and made them stars. They reportedly began dating a year later and reprised their roles in two sequels, including a third one that was screened in theaters.
During Efron and Hudgens' time together as a couple, they often vacationed together and attended many red carpet events, including the most prestigious one of all; the Oscars, in 2009.
On Dec. 13, 2010, sources told E! News that Efron and Hudgens had split, but remain friends.
"It's nothing dramatic," one source said at the time. "There's no third party involved."
"They were together for so long," a second insider said. "It just ran its course."
In 2011, Hudgens told Shape magazine, "Long-distance relationships are hard no matter what. When you don't have face-to-face time, it's just different. Having an iPhone helped, but it just wasn't the same."
"It was a good thing," she said about her and Efron's romance. "The relationship kept me grounded, and because I was with someone who knew me so well, I didn't need to try to be someone I'm not."
