Another summer, another surprise Hollywood romance. The latest couple to hit the news is 26-year-old Zac Efron, still best known for his adolescent starring role in the smash High School Musical series, and 35-year-old Michelle Rodriguez, star of the Fast and Furious franchise. As reported by the New York Daily News, the pair was photographed kissing and engaging in other forms of PDA on Saturday, playfully interacting with each other while enjoying the sun on a private yacht in Sardinia, Italy.
Both Rodriguez and Efron have been newsworthy in recent months, for very different reasons. In March Efron made headlines for a fight with a homeless man in the notorious Skid Row section of Los Angeles, leading many to suspect he was under the influence. Efron has struggled with drug addiction and attended rehab last year, admitting in an April interview with the Hollywood Reporter that he participates in Alcoholics Anonymous and therapy. “It’s a never-ending struggle,” he acknowledged in the interview.
Rodriquez, on the other hand, made waves with an Entertainment Weekly interview in October in which she seemingly came out as bisexual. “I’ve gone both ways,” she claims. “I do as I please….Men are intriguing. So are chicks.” While Rodriguez never confirmed a romantic relationship with British model Cara Delevingne earlier this year, multiple incidents, including photos of her kissing a topless Delevingne in the ocean, seemed to do her speaking for her.
Neither Efron or Rodriquez has commented on the recent photographs or rumors of their relationship.
