Vanessa Hudgens and a friend went to lunch at Jinky’s Studio Cafe in Los Angeles, Calif. on Monday (May 21). Prior to that the 23-year-old worked out at the gym. Wearing black pants and a short purple tank to show off her belly – Vanessa looks fit.
Her boyfriend Austin Butler didn’t join them on this outing – but the couple have been inseparable since dating last September.
Earlier this year The Carrie Diaries star admitted he has gotten used to the paparazzi documenting his love life.
He told Access Hollywood, “You can go the route of not living your life at all — and a lot of actors do that, where they just won’t even go out of the house at all — but it makes life so unenjoyable. You can’t go out, you can’t hold hands with your girlfriend, you can’t do any of these things. So, I’m trying to find the balance. It’s just staying happy and staying present and not worrying about what other people think.”
As for Vanessa – she has a lot to smile about. She’s just been nominated for a 2012 Teen Choice Award for Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.
