Zac Efron & Danielle Panabaker: Hugo’s Hotties

Zac Efron & Danielle Panabaker: Hugo’s Hotties

Zac Efron and Friday the 13th actress Danielle Panabaker grab lunch together at Hugo’s Restaurant in West Hollywood on Tuesday (February 24).

Zac and Danielle (both 21) starred in WB’s Summerland in 2004. Danielle‘s younger sister Kay played Zac‘s love interest on the show.

I ran into Danielle again at the Hollywood Life Oscar Viewing Party held at Mondrian Hotel’s Asia De Cuba restaurant on Sunday (February 22) in West Hollywood.

FYI: Danielle was not cast as Ariel in the remake of Footloose, which Zac will be headlining as Ren McCormack.

  • peace

    Jared posted yesterday in JJJr. that it was lunch not dinner.

  • go sox

    Seriously, what is the big deal? He is not jerk enough to treat Vanessa like he did Sunday night, and then rendezvous with someone else 2 days later. Probably wants to end those engagement rumors.

  • mej1031

  • melisa


  • go sox

    ashlee, good point. Even the title is annoying….Hugo’s “hotties”. Lame. Just itching to get something started. No reason friends can’t grab lunch.

  • mike

    hahaha i agree number 20 i agree with what you said…he was a total sweetheart at the oscars….hes not going to go and do something with a girl 2 days later lol

  • Zacis2faced

    Aww how cute of them! Hope their romantic date went well and RACING eachother after that to? Well how do you like that!? Next thing you know they’re the next sweethearts…awww. I would not be surprised if I saw them holding hands like he did with Nikki.

  • go sox

    I see the RODENT wasted no time jumping on this one.

  • [☆I n F a m o u s☆]

    LOL ..this kid’s finally embracing his homosexuality.

  • go sox
  • Amychris :

    this girl is so pretty.
    I like her.
    she’s so cutyy ..

  • diane

    upgrade from nudie girl….yay!

  • Maria

    I bored

  • Sarah

    Atleast she can act, can’t say the same about Zac, I mean seriously a washed up Disney star that’s done nothing. Thanks JJ.

  • christine x3

    wow his hair looks longer.

  • ryan

    does anyone know/can tell where those jeans are from?

  • zup

    Wow, he looks even more fug with this ridic haircut, good job kiddo

  • Colleen

    She looks like Danneel Harris who is dating Jensen.

  • kgg

    Nothing wrong with old friends hanging out. Last I heard she was dating Jesse McCartney, so it’s all good. This shows what kind of guy Zac is in that he cares about all his friends and keeps in touch with them. Vanessa went to a pilates class with Ashley and Brittany (Snow) and was seen on her cell phone, probably talking to Zac.

    You guys need to chill out…

  • nikki

    ok idc, zanessa is still good, it is just weird that there hangout and it has been like 5 years

  • ..

    She’s so useless.

  • k
  • zac is a rat

    This is my first comment on this page , but that’s so true the next time you see them together they will no doubt be holding hands like he did with Nikki god he was all over her like a rash while poor Vanessa had things to deal with back home some support efron gave her then I don’t think.

  • desiree

    I’ve never seen her with him before ever so it looks really bad.

    For Real is always saying he’s a man of honor wonder what he would say now. Zac knew how this would look he doesn’t care if Vanessa is embarrassed or has to listen to nasty rumors.

    Some honorable man NOT.

  • Michelle

    #19, she actually was on Summerland, for an episode. Oddly enough she played Jesse’s “interest” and now I think they’re dating in real life. Clearly you’ve never seen all the episodes…

  • pam

    #27 great comment! I agree.
    Go Zac, dump that Slutgens once and for all.

  • destnee’s bitch

    okay zack really needs a hair cut # 28 what the hell does being bored have to do with anything if you want to act chidish go to I am sure they will like your dumb comments

  • hali

    Zac, it’s so nice to see you out and about with someone besides that whiny , self-absorbed, girlfriend. You can have anyone you want so don’t settle for that trashy Vanessa.

  • Soni hannigan

    I would love for Zac and Vanessa to get engaged. I think maybe when she turns 21. As for him going to lunch with Danielle, I am sure he left from Vanessa;s house, so she probably knew he was seeing Danielle for lunch. Plus there is no way he would be all lovey dovey and very attentive to Vanessa, and then 2 days later be out with some other girl. He is 100 percent involved with Vanessa and in love with her.

  • rita

    Awwwww, wonder if he is discussing the sad news that BOTH he and Vanessa made this years worst dressed list at the Oscars. Poor Zac needs a friendly shoulder to cry on.

  • Wedding Peach

    I thought she (Danielle Panabaker) was seeing Jesse McCartney, or is that old news?
    How sad that Zac can’t get a break. He has other friends that he cares about, not just HSM friends.

    If people don’t back off regarding this “just lunch with an old friend,” then he’ll start feeling stifled because of Vanessa’s fans.

    Please let him breath, Everyone. Don’t smother him.

  • H

    Maybe just maybe he has friends?!? And maybe just maybe Vanessa is not a controlling, jealous person who demands that he spend all his time with her. From everything that they show- they have a healthy, serious, nurtured relationship.

    And honestly, they probably don’t give two _ _ _ _ _ about what any of us on here say.

  • lol

    i agree with #27 and #29!

  • tedpad

    does anyone else feel that these photos of danielle and Zac are fake? seriously, their shadows are obviously way off and I can see a lot of poorly cut zac and danielle. And the photo of Danielle and Zac running away from the paparazzi is so fake, the background is sharp, while Zac and danielle is blur. even considering the motion blur, danielle should not look so blur because she is not running. Hence, I judged that these photos are fake. (the ones with Zac and danielle).

  • go sox

    H, I agree with you. I think they have a solid relationship, and have their own friends. Nothing wrong with that.
