Zanessa @ Teen Choice Awards 2007
The 2007 Teen Choice Awards red carpet was disappointing as stars darted into the Gibson Amphitheater before the show started. (Being conveniently placed at the butt end of the press line did not help one iota). Vanessa Hudgens ran right past me but I was lucky enough to scream out and ask her “Who are you wearing??” “Uhhh, Thread social” she yelled back! Likewise, Zac whizzed right by, merely smiling and waving to reporters.
My head was not in the game as the show kicked off but I just happened to poke my head out of the press tent at the right time. Not only did I see Vanessa backtsage, Zac was standing right besides her! What were the odds?!
It was all you crazy Zanessa shippers. You guys willed it to happen!
I approached Vanessa first, as I did interview her over the phone about a year ago.
Asking her if she reads JustJared.com, Vanessa replied, “Of course I’m familiar with it!”
“Your site is totally blowing up,” she gushed. “I love it!”
I didn’t want to interrupt Zac as he was talking to one of his handlers at the time, but he came right on over and introduced himself to me!
Zac shook my hand and commented on Just Jared, “Yeah man, continued success!”
Zanessa kindly obliged to hold up “I LOVE JUSTJARED.COM” signs under one condition.
“Don’t write anything mean!” Vanessa said. “I’ll be reading!”
Zac jetted off in Eco-Limo Chauffeur Service’s Toyota Prius (pictured below) while Vanessa and I chatted for a bit more.
Vanessa mentioned she has already started to field new music for her upcoming sophomore album. And she was off to do more press for High School Musical 2 in Europe. Of course V took one last picture before she took off…
Congrats to the cute couple, who picked up three surfboards each! Zac for Choice Male Hottie, Vanessa for Choice Music Breakout Artist and both for High School Musical 2‘s record-breaking debut and Best TV Movie!
A big thanks to Zac and Vanessa for showing Just Jared some love. And to all the Zanessa fans — you guys are the greatest!
