Vanessa Hudgens Dodges The Hutcherson Rumor

Vanessa Hudgens was full of romantical secrets when she stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show today, according to Us Magazine.  Hudgens split from longtime boyfriend Zac Efron back in December, proving that not even Troy and Gabriella could go the distance.

When Ellen pressed her on rumored new beau Josh Hutcherson, Hudgens playfully brushed off any rumors and claimed otherwise.  “Can’t a girl have friends?…We just did a movie together and we had the best time,” she told the talk show host.  Hudgens and Hutcherson (when you say the two names together, it sounds cute) filmed Journey 2: The Mysterious Island in Hawaii last year.
