Zac Efron has spoken out to quash speculation heâ€™s engaged to girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens.
Britainâ€™s News of The World newspaper on Sunday quoted Hudgens, 20, as saying, â€œWe havenâ€™t set a date and if we did weâ€™d keep it secret for as long as possible.
â€œWhy? What if one of us was offered a major film part? Then weâ€™d have to postpone our marriage and people would say weâ€™d split up. And we donâ€™t want that.â€
Reports earlier in the year claimed Efron proposed to Hudgens during a joint trip to Japan in late January.
â€œZac is relieved to be out of the pressure cooker, because Vanessaâ€™s mom Gina has been putting serious heat on him to make an honest woman of her daughter,â€ a source said at the time.
â€œShe is old-school and doesnâ€™t approve of Vanessa living with Zac without some type of wedding promise.
â€œZac really loves the current arrangement. He adores Vanessa, and they gel really well together.
â€œGina already considers Zac part of the family, so sheâ€™s happy that he proposed.â€
But in a statement, a representative for Zac Efron insisted the engagement rumors are â€œnot true.â€
