The 32-year-old actress seems thrilled to be able to get out of quarantine thanks to Zoom. So, she told the Drew Barrymore Show Friday (May 7).
“It’s so weird believe me I still can’t get over the fact that this happened because I remember back in quarantine I was like, ‘Cool so I’m single now and I don’t can’t meet anyone, ”she said.
“I’m like, ‘I guess I’m going to use a dating app,’ but I always said I would never go on a dating app and then I ended up on a dating app and I was like : ‘I hate myself,’ I have to get rid of this, then I kind of gave up for a minute.
When she couldn’t find anyone on the dating apps, Vanessa Hudgens was invited by her friend to a weekly Zoom meditation class. This is where the magic happened.
“They added me to a group text,” she elaborated. “And everyone sends gifs of themselves, and it’s like Joe Jonas, Wilmer Valderrama. So I send a gif of myself and then there’s a gif in the group chat of a baseball player sliding into a base, and I thought that was a joke, so I just replied: “Hot”. And then I go up on the Zoom and I say to myself: “Who is this? And I found it and we started talking and yeah it’s wild that we ended up on Zoom.
Vanessa Hudgens also revealed that it was she who took the first step. The actress also advises those who are still hesitant to take a chance and ask someone out.
“I mean I’m a go-getter,” she says. “If I want something or someone, I go after them. I slipped completely into her DM and thought to myself, “Hey, it was nice to meet you. I think there is no shame in taking the first step. If you want it, why wait for someone else to give you what you want? “
In January 2020, the High School Musical alum broke up with Austin Butler. Hudgens and Cole Tucker have been dating since November 2020 and led their friendship to an Instagram official on Valentine’s Day 2021. Cole Tucker is a Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder in MLB.
“He’s just perfect for me,” Hudgens said when speaking to Entertainment Tonight recently. ” I am [happy]. I am really. I think it’s also very important to be grateful for everything you have in life. I made it a priority, and I feel like it just makes the magic even more alive.
