London: Vanessa Hudgens has confessed that she had an instant `connection` with beau Zac Efron.
The couple began dating each other after meeting on the set of `High School Musical.`
And Hudgens insists that their on-screen chemistry mirrors real life.
"Right off the bat, we had a connection, I think everybody could see it," the Mirror quoted Hudgens as telling US Glamour.
"I think that we inspire each other. [I love] having someone to grow with," she added.
The 21-year-old star said that Efron has changed a lot over the past four years.
"I look at him, and I see a man. He’s just grown-up. He was adorable. I mean, he wasn’t the guy that he is today. Like, he had a gap in his teeth! He was a whole different person," she said.
