The 26-year-old celeb, who was first linked to Zac, 27, in 2006, after filming the Disney channel breakout series High School Musical, was overwhelmed with all the media and female attention.
“I went through a phase when I was really mean because I was so fed up,” Hudgens said to the Times. “Girls were running after him, and I was giving them death stares. Then I realized that’s not what that’s about.”
Vanessa and Zac ended their relationship in 2010 and now she is dating fellow actor/model, Austin Butler, 23. Her new life mantra about fans is, “Spread the love, be a good person, they support you, be nice.”
