butler again…jared, will you please stop posting d-listers in this website? ever considering putting this on JJjr?

# 2

They both look adorable here

# 3

@skyhigh95:
what’s your problem with him?

cute couple btw

# 4

I’m a fan of both of them but there’s been a picture of them everyday for the last two weeks. It seems suspicious that are always paps around taking pics of them.

# 5

She needs to stop calling the paparazzi. Or at least be more subtle like Kate Bosworth.

# 6

Geez, these two can’t step outside without the paps following them. A twwet said the paps chased them up a trail while hiking. Why can’t they leave them alone??? Feel bad for them.

# 7

@Alaia:
They were hiking and a girl saw them (she was there too) and said “the paparazzis were chasing Vanessa Hudgens”… idk

# 8

@Haley:
They spend Christmas together, at the Church with vanessa´s family too, they both are pretty much always together – Vanessa is going to be really busy next year-, oh the love <3, i love to get pictures, but they dont look really happy in the last couple of sets, but then again, i wouldn’t like if they stop living their lives just because some guys are taking pictures of them.

I just don’t get why people think they call the paps. For what reason?? She doesn’t have a movie out until March, and he just started filming a new TV series. Don’t you think being photographed EVERY day is annoying to them, not to mention overkill? That serves absolutely NO purpose. I support V, but this constant harassment by the paps is awful.

Too much Bulter. Too many sightings.

Cute couple. There have been alot of posts about them (almost daily), but they’re not the ones taking the pics or posting them so i don’t get the hate. You can’t be mad at them for leaving the house.

does she have missing teeth when she smiles?

what a short average stubby thing.

always love @ 12/26/2011 at 10:28 pm

oh please, Zac & Vanessa left the house all the time (his words), and we got about 1/8 of the pictures that we’re getting now. there’s a way to do it without it being overkill, like it is presently.
as far as calling the paps (whoever does it)…that’s what keeps you in the public eye. you’re right, she doesn’t have a movie coming out until February, so she needs to stay in the news somehow, and apparently this is how it’s being done, with daily paparazzi pictures.

@always love:
lol you should look at some zanessa fan site, the first year of that relationship we usually got 3 set per day!

@always love: Yeah, they left the house, like they were hiding out from the FBI. That’s no way to live either. These two should be able to leave the house, go hiking, or whatever, without all this. Again, what is the purpose??? Doesn’t the overkill just piss people off?? How is that good?? She has plenty of exposure coming up with her movie promos, and she starts filming again in February. Sorry, but she doesn ‘t need this to stay in the public eye.

and Vanessa looks really gorgeous here, Austin is a really lucky guy, and handsome too!

“The 23-year-old actress and Austin kept a low profile as they both wore baseball cap to keep from being seen.”
Jared, that’s one of the dumbest things I’ve seen you print. Baseball caps to keep from being seen? Really? And the time for them to keep a low profile has LONG since passed. They are actors. Actors WANT to be seen. They WANT to be in the public eye. They WANT publicity. That’s why they’re actors. Duh….

seems like a cute couple! happy for vanessa!

@always love:
oh btw, Vanessa start the “Journey 2″ promo n january 15, they have part of the international promo tour first.
I guess she want to spend some time with her family and boyfriend! she always said that she misses her loved ones while she is n promo.

owwww so adorable!

i love the height difference between those two! Vanessa is so tiny and he is tall and sexy! love those two!

If you guys don’t like them, neither peep at the photos nor come here, but just mind your own business.

It’s so annoying that people criticize them.

They don’t look happy

always love @ 12/26/2011 at 10:58 pm

ofc there were more pics of Zac and Vanessa toward the beginning of their relationship than toward the end, they weren’t as good at hiding it at first. IDK, I guess I’m the only one who finds 195 pictures of Vanessa and Austin shopping in Target overkill? I mean, seriously, come on. but of course her fans will defend her to the end, and I’m not here to change anyone’s mind.

tbh I have so much respect for celebrities who can keep their private live PRIVATE and not be photographed almost everywhere they go, but maybe that’s just me. it doesn’t mean you have to hide like you’re running from the FBI, it means you’re careful and conscientious where you go. I just have a lot of respect for people who don’t let their personal lives overshadow their careers. right now that’s what Vanessa is doing. if she turns this around by promo I’ll eat my words.

@skyhigh95:
i really like him. he looks like a really cool guy, if Vanessa wanted to date some “A list” actor just to get you pleased or to get some fame, or just because she wanted a little of PR in her live she could do it, she has the contacts, but she clearly just fall in love with someone, when you love/want to be with someone you dont fall in love with someone “fame status”… just saying

OOhh they are cute,i like Austin already he seems nice for Vanessa.GOD blessed you both.

@Haley:
i think they get followed just because it’s a new relationship, Vanessa was barely seen this year in LA, she was doing promo, then hiding while filming in NY, and she just finished filming her movie a couple of weeks ago… she wants to enjoy her time with her BF, what a normal NON famous young lady would want to do.

Haters Suck! @ 12/26/2011 at 11:14 pm

@Maria
we both know why certian fans say that. They don’t like who she’s with so they need to find some way to ilegitimize it in order to keep their hopes alive. You think if she was with who they wanted her to be with people would be saying that?
@always love
be careful and conscientious of where they go? Like where? Like target? Like a church? Like going hiking up a trail here? As a person on Twitter pointed out they were being chased up this trial. I don’t see how that’s not being careful where they go.

Honestly, I don’t like him

He doesnt’ like her much.

As Austin is a playboy, he knows ways to win a girl’s heart and he is just using her

If he is a playboy and exploits her for his fame, she would better split up with Austin right away

@Alaia:
i think if she call the paparazzis at least, she would like to look more gorgeous, not that she need it, but wouldn´t she be wearing a better outtfit or make up?.. my opinion..

Oh at always love and Emma. Its like your the only ones making any sense

@always love: Of course, 195 pics of them is overkill. I’m a fan and I think it is too. I’m one of those people who don’t think this kind of exposure is good or productive. I get sick of seeing the same celebs in magazine after magazine, and it makes me not like them. That’s why I hate this kind of overexposure. I guess I just disagree that it does anything constructive. Pics every few weeks is great. Every day is another story. But they shouldn’t have to stay home, and not take that hike because of paps. That’s no way to live your life. She is still a private person, because she does NOT discuss her private life, never really has. She’s never even mentioned Austin’s name yet publicly. How is she not private? Just because some intrusive paps camp out and wait for her to leave her house doesn’t mean she is not private.

always love @ 12/26/2011 at 11:29 pm

if Zac and Vanessa were this open this early in their relationship, I wouldn’t have liked them as much as I did/do. I love(d) them BECAUSE they were so private. and don’t mention the CSC promo. we barely got anything out of Zac’s mouth that we didn’t already know in some form or another. it wasn’t like he was spilling all these intimate facts about her/them/their relationship.

and since I’m referencing Zac, I’ll go ahead and use him as an example. you don’t see his pictures all over the Internet everyday, and he just had a movie to promote.

@Haters Suck!: I agree, Haters. It is so annoying. Some of those fans wanted her to be gone from the ex’s life so bad, and now that she is, they still criticize. She will never please everyone, so at least I’m happy she doesn’t care what people think.

Haters Suck! @ 12/26/2011 at 11:42 pm

@always love
ok I won’t go to csc so if you’re going to go with the early part of the relationship how about pointing out all those pics we got of them going on vacation amd the PDA they would show there. Everytime they went on vacation we would get all kinda of pics. Austin and v went on vacation and nothing. And zac is either in Vegas or went back home there is one thing I’d also like to mention but if I do it’ll open a can of worms that I’m not sure it’s worth it. Also this is a new relationship for vanessa you can’t expect it to be the same as her relationship with zac.

@always love:
he used the relationship when it served too, i don’t hate Zac, but thats what i feel… its my opinion, you think they were private, in my opinion they weren´t private… someone said something about the laker games, or all their public travels together.

http://www.vanessa-hudgens.org/photos/displayimage.php?album=700&pid=17572#top_display_media

private… right?

I´m loving how free and happy Vanessa looks, and how she can be with her family and her boyfriend now, and just be herself. You can talk about all the celebs you want, but in Vanessa´s words, she doesn´t live her life for you, just for herself, and like someone said, her moto is “you only live once” and thats what she is doing, she is being happy with the ones she loves.
Sorry if she is not living your dreamed fairytale with your idol, she has a life too.

@always love:
the amount of pictures you get it only depends on how good the fansite gallery is…

a good example Ashleytisdale.org, maybe in one set of Ashley´s candids leaving her house they have like 200+ pictures, just because they have access to many agencies and they can buy the pictures…

but there have tons of zanessa pictures too like

zack-is-wack @ 12/27/2011 at 12:33 am

maybe the paps just want to exorcise all the ex-spirit’s from vanessa’s life, thus lots of pics of her with better guys like austin

i like them together. cute couple!

@VanFan ”They WANT the publicity, that’s why they’re actors.” lol um what? People don’t become actors for the publicity you idiot, the majority of them become actors because it’s something they’re passionate about and something they happen to love and enjoy doing especially Vanessa.

@Dana Well no **** Sherlock, they’re being followed and practically harassed by a bunch of dudes that have nothing better to do with their lives.

So let me understand this; it’s ‘poor Vanessa’ when they are photos of her out everyday but it’s ‘famewhore Ashley’ when there are photos of her? Why the double standard? Vanessa gets hounded but Ashley calls the paps? Because the very same people defending Vanessa call Ashley names for the very same thing. The hypocrisy is sickening. That said, let’s not get carried away here. These photos are not appearing in PEOPLE or US Weekly for big money. These are cheap photos and only JJ and a few other blogs bother to put them up. So neither Vanessa nor Ashley are huge stars that paparazzi will be stalking night and day. Think about that.

You don’t see pics of miley, demi, kstew, rpatz, bieber, emma stone, swift to name a few, the way you see personal pics of van. She might not be calling the paps but she does nothing to avoid them or public discussions about her personal life. Rpatz did say there are ways you can avoid the paps if you want to, those that are captured everyday wants to be seen, hey even kim k isn’t captured that much. Did someone say she was not seen earlier in the year? Please she waz every where.

ummm i’m sick of them ,,,,jared you should tell us when they poo too!!-.-
(not a hater)

@annii:
Excuse me, but it was Disney who used their relationship to sell HSM, not Zac. After HSM ended we never got an ‘intimate’ pictures like those taken from vacations in 2007 and 2008.

Zac IS a private guy. There wasn’t a single picture of him hanging out with Ashley Tisdale recently, or even with Vanessa Hudgens earlier this year when they briefly got back together. Except for these occasions, Ahsley and Vanessa were constantly photographed throughout the year. Isn’t it weird?

WTF
guys like umm this is a hudges post why are you haiting on ZAC??
WTF did zac do ??
i’m not a fan of hudgens OR ZAC but i don’t hate them either.
sso stop haiting on zac you idiots (stop begin jealous because he’s more famous than nessa and he’s single)
don’t understand me wrong right now i like hudgens=)

@GeeWhiz
Nothinhg with Ashley, but i think thats because she wasnt working a lot this couple of years and there are pictures of her every day doing the same things, at least Vanessa filmed 3 movies, doesnt use her twitter and is just out with her boyfriend. I dont see nothing bad on that… When she is working usually there isnt any picture of her

@Amber
I saw zac and nessa picttures n Hawaii before that romance movie of him last year, and lets be honest, at some events we dont get tons of things, like when Vanessa was out doing some make a wish things (if she wants attention she could use it) or when she was with Zac or at Ashley house, its the same, just because she is getting papped with her man and a couple of little girls want her with other guy, doesnt mean she wants the attention, she is going to be out next year, she lives in LA

ok that’s too much… Do we have to find a new article about these 2 EVERYDAY here? lol so yes they’re walking in the street, holding hands, and often kissing, we got it.

Lol guys Zac wasnt the perfect guy for Vanessa, they broke up, she has a new man, she doesnt want him, and the same goes for her… Why you guys talk about him like a Golden Boy? He is just a little guy out there trying to be an actor, if he doesnt like the cameras, iis his life, Vanessa is not longer with him, there were thing she doesnt like about him and the zanessa disney relationship wasnt perfect, so WHY on earth she would want to live her life in the same way? She learned from her mistakes and she wants to be free, she was in a relationship for so long and now she finally found love and with a good guy who loves her and respect her and loves her family too… She is finally happy, no one cares about zac now its all about Vanessa and her life, thats why we all are here, because we want to know about her, even the haters want to know about her…

@anne:
Well, that was after a month Charlie St Cloud came out, and they weren’t ‘posing’ at all. It were legit pap pics taken from distance. You can clearly see a difference if you compare these pictures with the Disney set-up vacation photos. Zac was pictured shirtless with his brother Dylan in Maui before CSC opened, but it was during the Maui Film Festival week and of course paps were camped there. Zac doesn’t use his private life to sell movies. It has nothing to do with Vanessa’s new guy. I failed to understand why some Hudgens fans always need to bash Zac everytime they try to defend her.

Loving the new pictures! Vanessa looks happy and comfortable with her boyfriend like i said before i hope we get more pictures, i love to read the zac – zanessa fans reactions! Hahahahaha

Ok people enough, she is happy and am sure her ex is happy too, you guys make it sound as if they were destined for each other. Can we all just let go? She will always have haters that has nothing to do with zac and so will he. So try to stop defending her by dissing the ex. The way i see it zac and van did have something special that people could connect to, thats why when they broke up all the nonsense began. You guys speak as if you know them personally is like there is a war to establish her happiness without zac or his without her. I read things like a bad bf, to controlling, fake, selfish, are there actual adults on this site? Can’t guys just realise that relationship either work out or not, and where is the rule that says he must marry her or she him then everything will be alright with everybody, heck she might not even marry this guy, will you diss him then or hate on her. Just becos they go around kissing or holding hands don’t mean anything. Hasn’t HW relationships taught you anything. You guys like drama, everything i read here is simply drama.

People need to stop wondering why. It is what it is. Vanessa didn’t call the paps, take 195 pics, nor buy them to put on sites like these, but she’s being accused of having something to do with it. Then some lame comments are made about how oh so private Zac is, and wallah, the Zac comparisons are made. THAT’s how the topic came around to him. In the process, someone mentions Ashley, and double standards. Just not true. FYI, I get sick of her photos when they happen every day too. The difference is, she tweets her whereabouts and plans, so she may not call them herself, but you have to admit, it’s easy to find her for that reason.

I think one of the reasons for all these pics, and why the paps are so intent on getting them, is pretty simple. She just came out of a VERY high profile 5 yr relationship, that everyone thought was inspiring. People have been waiting with baited breath to see who they were going to date next. The same will be the case when Zac goes public with who he hides with. It’s as simple as that. Curiosity. I’m saying this is too much as well, but I also don’t think they need to hide or stay in the house. I suspect one of the aspects of her past relationship that she disliked WAS the feeling of having to hide. Maybe she’s gone too far the other way, but I hope she’ll find a happy medium somewhere once this new relationship gets to be old news. I thought it was already. LOL

Come on! Vanessa! Please give the fans a break to allow them to miss you! I know you can hide better than that from the papz.
Seems that she’s not as private as she said she is and that’s desapointed me

cute couple.
i love how austin taking care of V.

crazy fan of vanessa @ 12/27/2011 at 9:36 am

Vanessa is every day at Just Jared, this is proof that she is a success, I can’t wait to see Vanessa win an Oscar for her performance in Beastly, while Zac’s career slowly dies

@Vero: Going about your life does not make you less private. She has NOT discussed her new relationship in any way, so keeping it to herself is what makes her private. She is allowed to go to Target, to the gym, hiking, whatever. Hiding in the house is just allowing the paps to dictate your life. She will not allow that to happen this time around, now will you hear her talking about who does her laundry or responds to social invitations, on her promo tour. She keeps ALL that private, as it should be.

@crazy fan of vanessa: Not for Beastly, but Gimme Shelter will be a big departure from her past roles.

Haters Suck! @ 12/27/2011 at 10:44 am

Ok to respond to the Ashley claims first. Ashley tweets everything she does. She tweets where she goes, she tweets who she’s with, she tweets what she’s doing. You don’t think th paps see that stuff making it easier for them to find her so that’s that.
Second peole seem to indicate they want Vanessa to stay home or hide when she goes out. Sorry no that’s no way to live, just because other people do that doesn’t make it ok. It maybe ok for them but not for everyone. Vanessa lived that life for 5 years of running and hiding to make another person happy but that’s over now. Here’s what I think I just think Vanessa flat out doesn’t care about paps anymore. She’s going to go out and live her life and do the things she wants. If she gets paped oh well I don’t think she cares, if she doesn’t all the better still not a big deal. Either way I don’t thinks she’s going to let paps dictate how she lives her life like other celebs have. That’s how I see it.

As much as i love V and happy she’s happy, this relationship is annoying me, only because every day there are pictures of them out there. I trust Vanessa is a smart girl and knows what she’s doing, but this relationship seems to be moving WAY too fast. And say what you will, but there is something off. How she was able to manage things better with Zac and even Josh, but with this guy it’s just everywhere, is weird.
I respect celebs who make an effort to not have their personal life out there because it overshadows their career. I think V has been around cameras long enough to tend to know at times when one is there or not, and as of late i feel like she’s putting on a show for us with this guy. I hate to say that, but it’s how i feel. There is nothing wrong with her living her life, but i’ve been a big fan of V long enough to see there is something off with these candids lately.

See you all tomorrow for the next candids of Vanessa!!!!

@vero
Well that’s the thing isn’t it? People complain but I promise you these people will be back on the next set of pics.
Another point is people saying Vanessa doesn’t try to avoid the paps, first off I don’t think she should it just seems silly and second you really can’t know that can you? Maybe she does try to avoid the paps pics capture an instant you really don’t know what happened before hand. And as has been pointed out they did try to lose the paps once they headed up the hiking trail. Which brings me to one last point people who see them.also tweet where they saw them. This is the fourth or fifth time a fan has tweeted their location. Does that mean anything I don’t know but I thought I’d point it out.

from an entertainment site, but i can’t post the link:

In these hype-driven times, there is also a problem of out of sight being out of mind. If a star does not have an in-your-face presence all the time, he/she is likely to be forgotten.

Overexposure is never good for any star’s career, but underexposure is equally dicey. It’s tough to gauge when the public’s curiosity turns to boredom.

kelly martineau @ 12/27/2011 at 5:01 pm

Does Austin live with nessa? and what does Austin doing for a living? And bady will become pregant before 2012 ends.
Haven’t seen nessa with her bff laura for quite awhile.

kelly martineau @ 12/27/2011 at 5:02 pm

hello

kelly martineau @ 12/27/2011 at 5:06 pm

does austin live with nessa? and does anyone know what he does for a living? nessa and austin have sex every night nessa will become pregant before 2012 over with.

@kelly martineau: We don’t know if Austin lives there. I’d say no, but he probably spends a lot of time there. Just like the ex did. No difference. I do think that’s really none of your business, nor what they do every night. How would you like a stranger to ask you if a guy lives with you and if you have s*x every night?? Please have some respect.

a woman defines herself by the people she loves.
a man defines himself by what he does.

a woman defines herself by the people she loves.
a man defines himself by what he does.

Jared, Ever considered taking a break from this couple’s daily posts?!?!

Just let them be.
I read comments trashing the ex,(zac) trashing the new boyfriend, whatever. give it a rest! You all speak as if you know them personally. None of us know how zanessa’s relationship went so none of you have the right to badmouth zac saying he was controlling, selfish, etc. Do you even know him? No. Get mature. Relationships either work out or they don’t and I don’t think anyone was at fault there.

such a cute couple!!!

“Overexposure is never good for any star’s career” exactly! and that’s my concern for her!

wow looking at her, she finally looks happy.I’m not a fan of Austin here but that smile she has on her face is always there when she’s with him, she’s holding is hand, she’s just lights up when she’s around him, I will always be a Zanessa Freak but maybe that’s exactly what she needed someone who is always there for her and not on the other side of the world promoting a movie, it’s amazing to see that smile honestly, he’s doing something right

Oh yea you can bet on it that Austin now lives with Vanessa he’s been photpograped in her house more than once and why not it’s a natural step for a couple who are so in love as these two. And you can guarantee that
bythe end of next year we will have a engagement announcement and more than likely a baby.

I mean they have done a vacation together very early in the relactionship, he goes to church with Vanessa and her family so all the signs are there for this couple to make it offical with a ring by the end of 2012. And good for them I hope and know just by looking at the photo’s that they will have a long and very happy life together.

i don’t know who is austin butler before vanessa….and he’s not so cute and handsome like zac…i think she’s only have fun but not in love… don’t look so happy like when she was with zac

Vanessa will also be a great girl for me. She is such a fashionistas which I am so into waiting for her photos .It is such a relief that she made her way from being with a guy who doesn’t fit her. All my wishes for this girl and she deserves the best guy in the world.

????????? @ 12/28/2011 at 7:30 pm

“It was really tough because I’m a private person”. by Vanessa Hudgens.

yeah right so much for being private she’s all over jj for her privacy. NOOOOOOOOOOOTTTTT.

@?????????: Oh, please. She isn’t talking about it, so she is still keeping it private. No reason she can’t go outside. I say good for her. Now, go look at all the times your ZE said he didn’t like to party, go clubbing, etc. and see how many times he has this year. People change their minds all the time. Maybe she was sick of hiding and not being able to live her life, or of having paparazzi dictate her life.

@?????????: Are you in withdrawal?? You haven’t had pics of Efron to drool over lately. Hmmm, well no paps in Vegas . Maybe that’s a good thing. Maybe you’ll get some of him romping on the beach with Rumer since he enjoyed that last year for New Year’s. She’s such a catch.
