A new report alleges Vanessa Hudgens refuses to see the upcoming Baywatch movie because her ex-boyfriend, Zac Efron, spends much of the film shirtless. Gossip Cop looked into this story, and we can exclusively set the record straight.

Hudgens has history with both stars of the upcoming comedy. The actress dated Efron for several years after meeting on the set of High School Musical in 2005, and she also co-starred with Dwayne Johnson in 2012’s Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. But now a supposed “source” tells HollywoodLife that Hudgens won’t see their new movie because “she can’t bring herself to watch Zac shirtless for two hours.” The outlet’s dubious insider adds, “She still holds a little animosity and doesn’t really want to spend time with an ex, even when it is only on screen.”

But despite the webloid’s assertion that Hudgens is still bitter over a breakup that happened almost seven years ago, Gossip Cop is told the story is simply false. A reliable source close to the actress laughed off the bogus rumor that she can’t bear to see Efron shirtless in a movie. In fact, Hudgens has been in relationship with Austin Butler since 2011, so HollywoodLife’s determination to link her to an ex-boyfriend of several years is just odd.

Of course, Gossip Cop isn’t particularly shocked by the site’s inaccurate story. We recently busted the webloid for publishing two separate articles falsely claiming Efron is dating Baywatch co-star Alexandra Daddario. This latest report is equally fabricated.
