Vanessa Hudgens tells the new Glamour it was love at first sight when she locked eyes with High School Musical costar Zac Efron.

"Right off the bat, we had a connection," says the actress, 21. "I think everybody could see it. When we had our audition, they paired us together. And he was adorable. I mean, he wasn’t the guy that he is today. Like, he had a gap in his teeth."

These days, she says he's "just grown-up. He doesn't have his gap anymore. I look at him, and I see a man."

What makes them work so well together? "I think that we inspire each other," she says. "[I love] having someone to grow with."

She claims she doesn't even get jealous.

"Every relationship’s all about trust," she says. "I think I used to. But now, not really."

Any truth to those house-hunting rumors?

"Nuh-uh. No," she insists. "I mean, maybe ... maybe house-hunting for houses on our own. I mean ... which, I’m not. And he’s not, at the moment. So no."
