For all those who stalked the aforementioned paparazzi set photos, this would be the time that The Rock and Zac Efron took turns flipping over monster truck tires.It makes about as much sense to the plot as it did to the confused masses of the Internet at the time, but no matter: Zac's bicep veins are there to make you forget about things like Really, though, the bulk of the two actors' on-screen interactions consist of Zac giving googly eyes to Alexandra's boobs.Millenials who grew up in the late 2000s will fondly remember Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens’ on-screen romance in the hit High School Musical franchise.The good-looking duo was considered one of the strongest couples among Disney stars of their time and gave their fans relationship goals.He gives her/them googly eyes through binoculars, he gives her/them googly eyes while she bounces up and down, he gives her/them googly eyes even when she point-blank calls him out for giving her/them googly eyes.In short, Zac's character is man obsessed, but logic would have it that one can only to ogle for so long before it becomes real.Zac Efron had all the makings of a star since his teen heartthrob days as Troy Bolton in High School Musical.
The hunky actor has been openly single since his split from fashion blogger Sami Miro over a year ago, but recently the rumor mill and his devoted fans—and basically the entire Internet—has been convinced that he is newly partnered with his costar Alexandra Daddario.The speculation began innocently enough: They kissed.Okay, so that sounds pretty cut and dry—but it was technically a kiss on the cheek, which could totally happen between friends.The official word from both of the actors' camps is that nothing is going on; Alexandra told E!'s own Jason Kennedy at this weekend's Billboard Music Awards that "I understand why people would go crazy over something like that, but Zac and I are very good friends." But that doesn't exactly explain the straight-up deluge of content the two are throwing up; it leads any millennial to think that they've gone If Zac and Alexandra really are doing the horizontal limbo, or a more romantic version of it, then it would have all started on the Miami set.Entertainment news outlets quickly followed, citing both their cozy antics at the award show and sources who claimed they had instant chemistry on set.The amateur detectives of the Internet also discovered that, shortly before the show, Daddario had posted a picture of their seating assignments next to each other and that Efron had responded with "I'm officially excited for the MTV Awards. "Things got even more complicated when British outlet straight-up asked Zac about the dating rumors and he responded with, "As far as I know, she hasn't said yes." If that isn't a tease wrapped in a riddle wrapped in a very spray-tanned enigma, we don't know what is.The costars, who are currently in the midst of a very strenuous international press tour for their upcoming blockbuster (which, it begs mentioning, involves spending a whole lot of time together), both attended the recent MTV Movie & TV Awards and marked the occasion by posting a seemingly innocent photo on Instagram.Daddario captioned it, "Backstage shenanigans with @zacefron," and we can imagine she instantly regretted the decision not to be more descriptive. Almost as soon as the actress hit "share," the rumors started flying.The scene was ripe for a costar-on-costar hookup: Teeny bikinis that have absolutely no regard for the size of one's buttcheeks, grueling hours that we have to imagine were offset by partying, and Zac Efron's abs, which can only be described as a 36-pack.The paparazzi were ever-present to snap behind-the-scenes photos (bless you, 2017!
