While Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez continue their on-again/off-again relationship, two other young stars may be reigniting their teen romance, if the guy can convince the girl to take him back that is. As reported by OK! Magazine on Tuesday, July 1, actor Zac Efron is apparently still hoping that he and former flame Vanessa Hudgens will find their way back together.

According to an insider, Zac thought that Vanessa was "the one" when they dated from 2006 to 2010. Unfortunately, Zac was a bit immature and his partying and wild ways drove them apart. Now 26, Zac has matured and wised up. The source said that Zac is still crazy about Vanessa and wants to make amends with her but she's not having any of it. The source revealed that she won't even speak to him.

That doesn't mean that their fans won't keep hoping. Several replied to the article to say that they wish the two, dubbed "Zanessa," would get back together.

Zac and Vanessa, having met and dated when both starred in Disney's hit "High School Musical," were once the teen golden couple. After they broke up in December 2010, Vanessa revealed to People magazine that their packed work schedules and distance from each other wasn't easy. She still spoke highly of Zac however, saying that being in a relationship with him helped keep her grounded and confident in herself.

While Vanessa Hudgens kept on the straight and narrow after their split, Zac Efron seemed to succumb to the child actor curse for a while. In April 2013, he secretly went to rehab for problems with cocaine and alcohol. He later joined Alcoholics Anonymous. While he seems to have beat his demons since then, an incident in March 2014 involving a homeless man in Los Angeles' drug-infested Skid Row had people wondering if he was back to his old ways. Zac admitted that staying clean hasn't been easy but "a never-ending struggle."
