They chose to part ways in April 2016 for undisclosed reasons.

Alexandra Daddario

The rumors of Zac dating Alexandra, who’s his Baywatch co-star, began circulating in May 2017.

Even though they were seen walking their dog together in early 2018 in Los Angeles, she stated at a press conference that they were “very good friends.”

Rebecca Ferguson

In December 2017, he shared a picture of him embracing Rebecca on his social media page, captioned “A picture is worth a thousand words. Only words I can think of now are: wtf were u thinking dude?! Look at her!!”

That being said, he never confirmed nor denied the dating rumors.

Sarah Bro

The speculations that Zac was dating Sarah surfaced in January 2019 as they were seen together in Los Angeles to attend a fitness class.

A couple months later, the relationship was sort of “confirmed” by Us Weekly, although their breakup news made a round in early 2020.

Halston Sage

Zac was linked to his Neighbors co-star, Halston, in April 2014. He was reportedly “really good to her” according to E! News.

It wasn’t really clear when or why they chose to split up.

Vanessa Valladares

Vanessa is an Australian model who worked at the Byron Bay General Store & Café when she met Zac in June 2020.

For his role in 17 Again in 2009, he reportedly made $1 million.

“Every day is a new experience and I take it as it comes.”

“There’s a way that you can throw negativity out there that seems rebellious. But I’ve always taken pleasure in a different kind of rebellion, which is putting a positive spin on everything, trying to enjoy myself at all times.”

“A lot of people ask: ‘Will you play a psycho to really change your image and prove you can act?’ But that’s not what I’m about.”

“I don’t know if I believe in love at first sight, but of course I believe in two people having chemistry right away. A girl should be really easy to talk to. When I lose track of time because we’ve been talking, I think that’s really fun.”

“I like when a girl knows what she looks like and dresses to accentuate those features.”

“I’m very competitive by nature. And I like to be the underdog – It’s the best way to win. To come from behind and win is a great feeling!”

“I was influenced when I was younger by the cartoon movies that Disney put out, like Cinderella and what not. I watched those movies over and over when I was younger and the music is ingrained into my head. Nowadays, I’m still humming the tunes. It taught me the fundamentals.”

“Spider-Man’s probably my favorite. You see, Batman is a billionaire and there’s nothing really cool about a billionaire saving the world. But Spider-Man is Peter Parker, a conflicted character who puts on a suit and saves the world. I love that.”

“Personally, I was never the cool kid. I was always sort of a bookworm.”

“I think if you’re fame-hungry, go out to a nightclub and get drunk… why do that? I don’t understand how some people would want fame so bad that they’d go out and get negative attention to earn it.”

“Don’t get me wrong – I’ve gone to a club. But I’d much rather be with my close friends at home or a concert, or on a trip. I’ll go dancing with my grandma. She likes to cut a rug!”

“I’ll never try to put on a fake image. I’m just Zac.”

“It’s weird, but I don’t feel like think I deserve any of the attention. There’s really nothing but one audition for a Disney Channel movie that separates me from 2,000 other brown-haired, blue-eyed guys in L.A., you know?”

“I’m a guy, but I’m not afraid to cry. Not all of the time. But when I’m watching a movie, I’ll sometimes shed a tear, especially ‘Moulin Rouge’.”
