Back in 2008, Drew Barrymore had a front row seat to one of the most iconic teen couples of the 2000s! The eponymous talk show host, 46, spent the May 7 episode of her talk show, chatting with Vanessa Hudgens about how Drew accidentally became the third-wheel on the starlet’s date with then-boyfriend Zac Efron.
“I was just thinking about, back in the day, we went to a Kings of Leon concert together, you, me and Zac Efron,” said Drew Barrymore. “And it was one of the funnest nights of my life.” The High School Musical alum, 32, was shocked Drew even remembered the former couple’s date.
“Are you kidding me? It’s like, still a story I tell to this day,” she confessed to the talk show host. “That was such a wild time. I remember being there and I was like, ‘What’s happening? This is so amazing.’ You were so sweet,” Vanessa Hudgens sweetly said to Drew Barrymore.
“I was literally your and Zac’s third wheel,” admitted Drew. “It was so fun and you guys were so cute and cozy and I just had the best time.” At the time of the 2008 concert, Zac, 33, and Vanessa were an established couple. The former couple met on the set of the 2006 sensation High School Musical, for which they played Troy Bolton and Gabriella Montez, respectively.
