It’s really no secret that Vanessa Hudgens and her Journey 2: The Mysterious Island co-star Josh Hutcherson dated briefly last year. Although the two never officially confirmed the relationship, they were spotted at a few parties and at Coachella getting pretty cody before quietly splitting. Since then, Vanessa has made no effort to hide her new romance with Austin Butler.
Josh and Vanessa are busy promoting their new movie in Australia and they appeared on Australia’s Today show last week where they were left squirming in their seats when the host asked, “How long have you two been going out?”
After a moment of nervous silence, Josh replied, “We’re not… We were at one point, but she broke my heart – no, just kidding. That was a while ago. We’re just really good friends now.”
Talk about an awkward situation. We’re glad that Josh and Vanessa seem to still be good friends though. Check out the interview below (FF to 3:22) as well as the duo’s Sydney photo call.
