Vanessa Hudgens spends some quality time with boyfriend Austin Butler

Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler make an adorable couple. The pair were spotted enjoying a caffeine-sugar fix as they sipped on a blended iced coffee today in Los Angeles.

The couple were spotted following a trip to Coffee Bean as they enjoyed the warm California sunshine. Vanessa, 23, was dressed casually in black jeans and a white top but still managed to turn heads, while her beau Austin donned jeans, a check shirt and beanie hat.

Earlier they enjoyed some lunch together before shopping on Robertson Boulevard where they bumped into some of Austin’s pals, stopping to say hello to them and their pet dog.

Yesterday the High School Musical star headed out early with her other half for breakfast at the Sweet Salt eatery in Toluca Lake, California, and both dressed down for the occasion.
 

The actress has just finished filming the Indie comedy Spring Breakers from eccentric director Harmony Korine, in which she plays a ‘crazy party girl’ named Candy, of whom she has said: ‘She’s the one I feel kind of gets everyone going and pushes everyone a little bit.’

Vanessa, alongside co-stars Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine, star as a group of friends who head to Florida for spring break, but can’t afford the lavish holiday they want so they decide to rob a restaurant.

The honeymoon period is clearly still in full swing for smitten actress Vanessa Hudgens and boyfriend Austin Butler.

The lovebirds were seen enjoying domestic bliss as they went grocery shopping together, and the High School Musical star couldn’t resist reaching out for her blond hunk as he dutifully pushed their trolley of goodies to the car.

Dressed in her typical boho style, Vanessa looked gorgeous in a white dress, chunky wooden beads around her neck and a large tassel bag thrown over her left shoulder. Ever since the pair went public last September, they have constantly been photographed with their limbs draped over one another and leaning in for a kiss.

The 23-year-old brunette was also spotted looking extremely loved up with Austin - soon to star in The Carrie Diaries - last Saturday when the pair took a trip to the Huntington Library Botanical Gardens. The young couple didn’t care who was watching them as they canoodled and cuddled in the public space in San Marino, California.

Once again, Vanessa looked fantastic in casual attire, wearing a cream crochet maxi skirt and gladiator sandals. The Spring Breakers star showed off her midriff by teaming them with a floral print crop top.

As the pair wandered around the gardens laughing with one another, Vanessa - who previously dated Zac Efron - saw this as the perfect opportunity to pose for some photos.

Vanessa will be starring in Spring Breakers alongside Selena Gomez, who said of her character in the movie: “My character is the most timid one for sure,” Selena told Entertainment Tonight. “I mean she’s more of the one that kind of thinks things over and is more aware of her surroundings which is definitely how I am in real life. But she does have a little bit of an edge to her. You know she smokes, she drinks, kind of dances with random guys. I mean, it’s spring break!”

Gimme Shelter actress Vanessa Hudgens has revealed how she made a New Year’s resolution that she would start to wear more colours and she claims that she has so far stuck it. Vanessa also admitted that she loves to change her hair quite often too.

Hudgens explained, “My New Year’s resolution is to start wearing colours, and with this I just wanted to do something simple and classy. I was sick of having stuff in my hair. I love change and I can’t keep the same hairstyle for very long. It’s just fun to reinvent yourself.”
 
Vanessa also admitted that her trip to Rome with her boyfriend Austin Butler also inspired her to get more creative with her look. She added, “I went to Rome for the first time and I feel more inspired than I’ve ever been.”
 
Pictures of Vanessa Hudgens with blonde hair recently appeared on the internet, as she has changed her hair again for her role in her latest movie Spring Breakers. Spring Breakers also stars Selena Gomez, James Franco and Ashley Benson and is set to be released next year.

20 year old actor Austin Butler has become one of the most talked about young stars in Hollywood in recent months but it has not been because of his acting. Austin Butler and Vanessa Hudgens began dating late last year and Austin has admitted that he is still trying to adjust to the constant harassment from the paparazzi.

Butler explained, “I’m a very private person and I’m still very shy, it’s such a personal thing. It’s something that is sort of unavoidable. It goes with the territory, so I can’t complain, but it’s such an invasion. We were at a private hotel, so you don’t think that that’s going to be there, and then it ends up happening. Sometimes, during the day you’ll actually see the photographers, but then there’s other times where they’re so far away that you don’t even know they’re there.”
 
He added, “You can go the route of not living your life at all  and a lot of actors do that, where they just won’t even go out of the house at all  but it makes life so unenjoyable. You can’t go out, you can’t hold hands with your girlfriend, you can’t do any of these things. So, I’m trying to find the balance. It’s just staying happy and staying present and not worrying about what other people think.” Vanessa Hudgens recently discussed how her ex Zac Efron dealt with crazed fans.
Topless Vanessa Hudgens beach blunder

It appears that Vanessa Hudgens has experienced quite the beach blunder, as her bikini top flew open while on the beach in Hawaii. Vanessa was quick to react, however, and made sure that she was not exposed for too long, covering herself up pretty quickly. Unable to do the bikini back up, Vanessa had to find shelter behind a sun shade to fix the problem.

 
Vanessa Hudgens has been enjoying a well earned break with her boyfriend Austin Butler and the couple have regularly been spotted spending time together on the beach. Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler have been dating each other since September last year and the young couple certainly still seem to be very much in the honeymoon period of their relationship.
 
 
While the majority of their time has been spent on the beach, Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler did also manage to find some time to go kayaking. Vanessa Hudgens can next be seen on the big screen when she appears alongside Josh Hutcherson and Dwayne Johnson in Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, which is released on February 3 in the UK and February 10 in the US.

It seems that the Australia Today hosts and research crew are a little behind the times, as they seemed to believe that Vanessa Hudgens and Josh Hutcherson were still dating. Vanessa and Josh were in Australia to promote the movie Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, when they were asked how long they have been dating, a question that caused a bit of awkwardness.

Hutcherson looked at Vanessa with an awkward expression on his face, before explaining, “We’re not. We were at one point, but she broke my heart. No, I’m just kidding, that was a while ago, we’re really good friends now.” Not accepting all of the responsibility for asking the poorly researched question, the presenter then went on to blame his research team for stitching him up.
 
Vanessa Hudgens and Josh Hutcherson briefly dated while filming the movie Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. Vanessa Hudgens is now dating Switched at Birth actor Austin Butler, while Josh Hutcherson is keeping quiet about his love life. Journey 2: The Mysterious Island is set to be released on January 19 in Australia before being released on February 3 in the UK and February 10 in the US. Check out the video of the blunder below.

The Rise and Rise of Vanessa Hudgens
The Rise and Rise of Vanessa Hudgens

Vanessa Hudgens is a household name around the globe, thanks to the success of the High School Musical franchise but how did Vanessa Hudgens become the star she is today?

Vanessa Hudgens was born on December 14, 1988 in Salinas, California in the United States. She was born and raised a Roman Catholic and has a very mixed, multi cultural background. Vanessa’s father is of Irish and Native American descent, while her mother is a native of Manila, Philippines and is of Chinese, Filipino and Spanish descent. Music has always been in the family and all of Vanessa’s grandparents were musicians.
 
Vanessa Hudgens took her first steps toward stardom at the age of 8, when she took up musical theatre starring in local productions such as Carousel, The Wizard of Oz, The King & I, The Music Man, Cinderella and many more. Two years later, Vanessa decided that she wanted to up things a bit and began to audition for television commercials and television shows. Hudgens landed a role in a television commercial and her family moved to Los Angeles where the commercial was being filmed.
 
 
At the age of 15, Vanessa Hudgens took another step towards movie stardom, as she won her first role in a feature film. Vanessa attended the Orange County High School of the Arts for a brief time before leaving to be home schooled by tutors, as her acting career began to take off. 2003 saw Vanessa Hudgens in her first movie, as she had a minor role in the Indie movie Thirteen, starring alongside Evan Rachel Wood. The movie received critical acclaim and made back more than its $4million budget.
 
In 2004, Vanessa Hudgens won the role of Tintin in the movie Thunderbirds but the film flopped both financially and critically. However, Vanessa put the heavy criticism behind her and continued along the acting path, appearing in a number of television shows in 2005, including Quintuplets, Still Standing, The Brothers Garcia, Drake & Josh and The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. Then, late in 2005, Vanessa got the big break that would make her a household name.
 
Vanessa Hudgens auditioned for the role of Gabriella Montez in 2005 and was to audition alongside Zac Efron. The chemistry that the young couple showed in the audition won them both the lead roles in High School Musical. The movie became a huge success and the chemistry that Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron showed on screen, spilled off screen and the two stars began dating.
 
 
After the success of High School Musical, Vanessa Hudgens decided to turn her hand to a music career. In September 2006, Vanessa released her debut album V and readers of Billboard voted it as the seventh best album of the year. Hudgens was then named Female Breakout Singer at the Teen Choice Awards in 2007. V was certified Gold on February 27, 2007.
 
2007 was quite an up and down year for Vanessa Hudgens. Vanessa reprised her role as Gabriella Montez for High School Musical 2 but came under a little criticism for her performance and was deemed average. On September 6, 2007, some nude pictures of Vanessa Hudgens appeared on the internet. Hudgens admitted that she was deeply embarrassed by the nude pictures, which she had taken in the privacy of her own home.
 
Also in 2007, Vanessa Hudgens was sued by Brian Schall, who claimed that Vanessa was in breach of contract and that she owed him $150,000 after he helped her to make over $5million from her music career. However, Hudgens claimed that she was underage when she signed the contract in October 2005, since she was on 16 years old and disaffirmed the contract is 2008. It would not be the last time that Vanessa would be sued.
 
 
Vanessa Hudgens was again sued in 2008 by Johnny Vieira, who claimed that he was owed a share of advances, royalties and merchandising revenue. The case was settled in May 2009. On July 1, 2008, Vanessa released her second album, Identified, which debuted at Number 23. Vanessa went on an Identified Summer Tour which began on August 1, 2008 and ended on September 9, 2008.
 
In 2009, despite reports that Vanessa Hudgens would be dropped Disney, she reprised her role as Gabriella Montez once again for High School Musical 3. Vanessa’s performance received better reviews that in High School Musical 3 and Hudgens went on to be named Favourite Movie Actress at the Kids Choice Awards 2009. By now, Vanessa Hudgens had firmly established herself as a household name but she did not want to be tied to Disney forever and wanted to show her acting diversity.
 
After High School Musical 3, Vanessa Hudgens revealed that she would be taking a break from her solo singing career. Next up for Vanessa was Bandslam, which was released on August 14, 2009. While the movie was huge flop, Hudgens was praised for her performance and her acting was compared to that of Thandie Newton and Dorothy Parker. August was quite the eventful month for Vanessa, as more nude pictures of her emerged online. Vanessa was very upset that her private photos had been made public and released a statement.
 
 
She explained, “Whenever anybody asks me, would I do nudity in a film, if I say that it’s something I’m not comfortable with, they’re like, ‘Bullshit, you’ve already done it.’ If anything, it makes it more embarrassing, because that was a private thing. It’s screwed up that someone screwed me over like that. At least some people are learning from my mistake.” It was announced in 2009 that Vanessa Hudgens would be appearing alongside Alex Pettyfer in the big screen adaptation of the Alex Flinn novel Beastly. After the movie, Vanessa Hudgens was recognised as one of the ShoWest stars of Tomorrow.
 
After forging a success movie career for herself, Vanessa Hudgens decided to return to the stage and appeared as Mimi in the musical Rent, which ran from August 6 until August 8 in 2010. Many people criticised Vanessa’s involvement but the director, Neil Patrick Harris claimed, “Vanessa [Hudgens] is awesome. She’s a friend. I asked her to come in and sing to make sure she had the chops for it. And she was very committed and seemed great.”
 
December 2010 saw the end of her relationship with her High School Musical boyfriend Zac Efron after the couple admitted that they had simply drifted apart due to their busy work schedules. In March 2011, Vanessa Hudgens appeared in the action movie Sucker Punch and, while the movie received mixed reviews, it was her first step in to more grown up roles. Rumours began to surface in mid 2011 that Vanessa was rekindling her romance with Zac Efron but those rumours proved to be unfounded, as Hudgens began dating Austin Butler.
 
 
2012 is set to be a huge year for Vanessa Hudgens, as she already has three movies set to be released and filming to begin on a fourth. Vanessa will appear alongside Josh Hutcherson and Dwayne Johnson in Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, which is released on February 10, 2012. Vanessa will then be seen in the gritty drama Gimme Shelter, a role in which Hudgens had to chop off her long hair, something she found difficult to do but knew she needed to for the role. She will also appear alongside Nicolas Cage and John Cusack in the Thriller The Frozen Ground, which is based on actual events and will be released on December 1, 2012.
 
Vanessa Hudgens is also set to begin filming in the spring of 2012 for the movie Spring Breakers, which will see her starring alongside Selena Gomez, Emma Roberts and James Franco. The movie is expected to be released in 2013. With these much more grown up roles under her belt and the fact that she has shown that she is willing to make personal sacrifices for her movie roles, Vanessa’s career is really moving in the right direction. It is only a matter of time before Vanessa Hudgens receives that big role, where she gives an Oscar winning performance. Expect Vanessa Hudgens to be a Hollywood superstar for many years to come.
Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler enjoy weekend together
Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler enjoy weekend together

Gimme Shelter actress Vanessa Hudgens and her latest boyfriend Austin Butler seem to be getting really close together. The young couple spent the weekend together and, although hounded by the paparazzi, they seemed to be enjoying each other’s company a lot.

 
Vanessa Hudgens revealed earlier this year, that she was loving the single life, since she split from her High School Musical co star, Zac Efron. However, it appears that she is now ready to settle down again, as she looks to be getting serious with Austin.
 
 
It is believed that Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler have been dating since late August and friends of the couple say that they are really into each other. That ruins any chance of Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron getting back together, but then that was just silly rumours anyway.
Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens NOT getting back together
Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens NOT getting back together

A source has supposedly claimed that Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens could be getting back together but clearly this “source” is not as close to the couple as suggested. For a start, Vanessa is dating Austin Butler and the young lovers seem pretty happy together.

The source said, ”Zac realized that he’s miserable without her. He’s tired of meaningless hook ups,” before adding, “She’s going to make him work hard before she forgives him completely.” Forgive him for what? What did Zac Efron ever do wrong?
 
Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens split up because their relationship had run its course and they were always apart from each other due to work commitments. It was a mutual decision, with no blame involved. This source clearly doesn’t have all the facts, so don’t expect Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens to get back together anytime soon.

22 year old actress Vanessa Hudgens is one of a number of celebrities to have joined the biking craze which is sweeping across Hollywood. However, Vanessa has not been as lucky as many of the others and was recently spotted experiencing some bike problems.

Hudgens had just finished a session at the gym and was biking home, when the chain on her bike came off. Unfortunately for the actress, she did not know how to put it back on.
 
 
Luckily a photographer was on hand to help out the stranded star and put the chain back on for her.
 
Vanessa Hudgens has been seen on a number of occasions recently with actor Austin Butler and it was suggested that the two were a couple. However, a friend of Vanessa explained, “It’s a friends with benefits situation.” Vanessa has previously dated her High School Musical co star Zac Efron but the couple split last year.
