Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale have been friends for more than 13 years. After meeting on the set of a commercial as kids, they solidified their friendship during their High School Musical days—and have been through a lot together since (weddings, controversies, break-ups, all of it).
So, on Tisdale’s 35th birthday on July 2, Hudgens celebrated some of her favorite memories alongside her “OG bestie,” revealing that they’re currently decorating and renovating their houses together.
Vanessa Hudgens posted a bunch of photos that show her with Tisdale through the years and describe how their bond has lasted into “adulthood.” “We met on a commercial audition and our friendship took off. Next to High School Musical, to touring the world, to shopping ALOT, to basketball games and a lot of rose, She wrote in the caption of the post. ”Now in our adulthood we [are] busy helping each other decorate and renovate our houses. Lol so happy I have your fun-loving spirit by my side in all walks of life. I love u ash.”
Hudgens isn’t the only one prone to gushing about her friend. Last year, in an interview with Us Weekly, Tisdale opened up about what her relationship with Hudgens means to her. “We actually worked together a year before in a Sears commercial, and from that day on we were super close,” she said in August 2019. “So people don’t really — I think some people know that, but they think it was that movie that brought us together and it really wasn’t.”
She added, “We just have a connection and she’s so awesome and one of my best friends.”
The two of them are seen together frequently, attending basketball games and performing live covers together. They’ve also joined forces with the rest of the High School Musical cast to raise awareness for Feeding America during the COVID-19 pandemic.
It’s always nice to see on-screen rivals have each others’ backs in real life.
