Back in September, reports emerged that High School Musical alum Zac Efron had completed a stint in rehab five months earlier. While the 25-year-old actor managed to keep his struggles secret for quite awhile, it was reportedly the second time he sought treatment for drug addiction within the last year.
On Thursday, October 10, Zac stepped out for his first public appearance since news of his treatment broke, and he was looking happier and healthier than ever! The Neighbors actor got into the Halloween spirit at the 5th Annual Haunted Hayride, which he attended with his good friend Brittany Snow.
While Zac and Brittany have been close ever since co-starring in 2007’s Hairspray, the duo looked quite a bit cozier than we’ve ever seen them before. Zac was spotted wrapping his arms around Brittany from behind, while she held tightly onto his arms.
Last we heard, Brittany was still dating Teen Wolf star Tyler Hoechlin, though the couple haven’t been photographed together since early September.
This isn’t the first time the former co-stars have sparked rumors of a romance. Back in 2011, the duo reportedly got close at a Golden Globes Week party, despite Zac’s relationship with then-girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens.
Though this photo certainly makes us wonder about the nature of their friendship, it’s entirely possible that they’re nothing but platonic.
What do you think about Zac Efron and Brittany Snow? Are they merely best buddies or is there something more going on?
