Vanessa Hudgens & Gaelan Connell: Bandslam Basketball Buddies!

Vanessa Hudgens & Gaelan Connell: Bandslam Basketball Buddies!

Will and Sa5m together again!

Vanessa Hudgens and Gaelan Connell enjoy the New York Knicks basketball game from front row at Madison Square Garden in NYC earlier this week.

Just before catching and meeting up with Gaelan, the 22-year-old actress stopped by the 25 Park boutique in Manhattan, wearing a gorgeous blue velvet dress from Catherine Maladrino.

Vanessa has had quite a busy week, promoting her new film, Beastly. She stopped at Live with Regis & Kelly, MTV’s The Seven and Late Night with David Letterman.

After her busy week, Vanessa headed to Vegas to celebrate BFF Brittany Snow‘s 25th birthday!

  • zanessa/scashley/ashnessa

    You must be busy too JJJ considering that this happened last week ? Alright, well it’s better than nothing.. Look at Baby V rocking those dresses. And a Bandslam reunion !! It’s great to see them keeping in touch. :D

  • suzy

    love them.

  • muse

    Its good to see Vanessa happy with her friends and keeping busy with her promoting and career. I cant wait to see all her finished and future projects.

    :) Love the blue jacket.

  • honey

    She looks really happy….GO NESSA :)

  • Jazmin

    Really love her hair this way and just love how she stays friends with old co-stars <3

  • lauren

    your about 4 days late?

  • maria

    For all the haters out there: funny thing, everyone who knows Vanessa and has worked with her, have nothing but amazing things to say about her. She will always be your friend, and is loyal, LOYAL, LOYAL. It’s been a few years since V and Gaelen filmed this movie, yet they manage to catch up and have fun together. I have no idea what there is not to like about her fresh personality, and the way she lives her life.

    I want to also say, damn, she looks AMAZING in these photos! Loving her new hair, her new chic look, and that glow she has!!!! When I saw Beastly, she seriously looks gorgeous onscreen, and especially when the camera zooms on her. Such a screen presence.

  • yets

    I Love Her!!!

  • Truth

    Well they look cozy! Its so great to see her catching up with old friends. These past few months shes been so lively and spirited and just happy. Guess that break up really was for the best.

  • alana

    Yea they’re just friends but the tabloids were saying that he’s her new boyfriend… oh wait, I thought Alex was her new bf… no? Well what about Josh. Dang man, she can’t go out with any guy nowadays and have it be completely platonic. The media is ridiculous. -_-

    (Oh, and Nessa looks cute btw. and so does Gaelan) :D

  • Haters Suck!

    Damn straight the break up was for the best. Vanessa needed to get away from that cheating little boy and hopefully she kicked him out of her life forever and never has to put up with his crap anymore and wait for him to grow up and grow a pair. Now she can go out and spend time with her friends and find her a real man, someone who will actually care about her, show her support and love her, all the things the little boy never did. She looks happier then ever now and I think it’s because she finally saw the little boy for who he really was and kicked him to the curb.

  • #4

    A LOT of celebrities have been courtside lately at the Knicks’ games. Crazy-ness! & yay, Will & Sa5m! (;

  • Aly

    @Haters Suck!:
    I taught you were ignoring zac, but you ended up hating him…

    Josh who? It`s Gaelan… *one week later* Gaelan who? It`s ALEX… The media is going to make her dating every guy she`s seen with…

  • Haters Suck!

    You know I was going to ignore zac but while I don’t comment on zac posts anymore I still read the comments from time to time and there was one (I think you know which one I’m talking about) that really pissed me off and was very disrespectful to Vanessa I didn’t want to post my comment on zac’s post so I just said it on here. I wasn’t going to say anything about zac but that comment about Vanessa really got under my skin and I just said what I had to say on here.

  • Aly

    @Haters Suck!:
    I`m not accusing you of anything, i was just saying, i know you don`t like zac anymore, but i never saw you hating him until now… That comment got me mad too -.- I think i made the biggest comment in history here, lol.

    Anyway, Vanessa looks really gorgeous and the haircut works really great for her. It`s so good Beastly made #3 at BO, haha. CSC? It`s Beastly time!!!

  • Katty

    Beastly made about 10+ million this opening weekend and came in third. That is good for only being in around 1000 or so theaters. The winner was Rango with 28 or mil and The Adjustment Bereau came in 2nd with around 20 mil and both were in over 3000 theaters. Take Me Home Tonight was in over 2000 theaters and only made 3mil. WIN :) that makes me happy.
    Overall, Beastly didn’t do bad at all, plus it will have this weeks earnings.

  • Diamond

    Vanessa looks gorgeous , n it’s great to see her with old co-stars/friends , she’s a great friend ! I saw Beastly yesturday it was AMAZING ! I loved it , it was romantic very funny , good moral , n had one of the bests casts !! Vanessa did a great job she portrayed Lindy amazingly , n her and Alex’s chemistry was incredible , I loved the ending ! OH n I cant forget Neil Patrick Harris was HILARIOUS ! Glad to see Vanessa so happy , her personality just shines through <3

  • lol

    Its funny how there, is not really much hate to vanessa here (: the only onces there is talking hate, is the vanessa fans. How haters should shut up? No one is really saying anything bad.

  • Stephanie

    @Haters Suck!: Sweetie she still talks to him and Zac and her are taking a break and FYI everything about him i love and what comment and if ur talkin about the one from GQ I read the who interview and it was him restating the question.And he did not cheat on her the whole Theresa Palmer thing was FAKEEEEE……………Thank You and have a great day!

  • Stephanie

    @Aly: I think it only did good was because of Alex P. and it was a really good book….Ilove Nessa but Beastly was not a very good movie to me because everything was rushed and it left out alot of good detail…..and on Rotten Tomatoes it only made a 21%….so it no different than CSC and actually it made more then BEASTLY the only reason why it did bad cuz it had better movies out around the time it came out!!!

  • musicgirl

    Is 10 million good or bad ? some people said it flopped but its 3rd on the box office list :s

    vanessa looks so happy! love her smile ! :)

  • maeli


  • Haters Suck!

    first don’t ever call me sweetie again.
    Second, I highly doubt they talk and I doubt they are even friends, why would Vanessa want him in her life after he DID cheat on her and zac proved that he never cared about her. I hope he stays away from her and never goes anywhere near her again, he does not deserve her.
    Third, I was refering to a comment left on the zac post that was before this one that was very rude and disrespectful to Vanessa.
    Fourth beastly was a very good movie, as it made $10 million and got a B+ on cinimascore.

  • Aly

    Um, i was talking about something completely different. People were so sure Beastly it`s going to be a big disaster and it isn`t going to be better than CSC, but then it ranked #3 at BO… and now nobody compared it with CSC, no, some review actually said that it`s like Twilight with better acting… So i think it did good, sadly for me, i`m not going to watch the movie for a long time because it doesn`t come out here soon…

  • lewis

    i love her! even though she needs lotion on those knee caps lol! she’s still very pretty.

  • Aly

    @Haters Sucks! & Stephanie, how do you 2 know that they don`t talk and he cheated on her for sure?

  • amelia25

    Go Nessa!

  • just sayin

    she is nothing without her long hair and under all that make up

  • Angie

    @Stephanie: @Haters Suck!: @Aly: Don’t start focus on Vanessa please and Gaelan come on the post is very positive right now ok. FOCUS.

    Think about Vanessa how fun she’s having I’m glad she and Gaelan still keep in touch and she looks really pretty. Congratulations on Beastly V.

  • Chanon

    I love their friendship, but ohmygodddddddd. :’( This makes me so sad! I wish that were Zac and her instead. </3

    love you <3

  • caro


  • ane


    yup! agree with everything you said.

  • erica

    i think its kinda like that friends with benefits thing. i mean they takin a break but they still “talk” like flirt i mean 5 years together and u cnt jus go bak to buddy buddy especially if u probly slept together

  • Lilly

    Ok, I’ve been away for a while. So, is this her new boyfriend? Didn’t they do a movie together a while back? Have they been together since then? Is this why she broke it off with Zac, because she fell in love with this guy? Oh, gosh, did she cheat on Zac? I can’t believe that.

    Sorry if I am stating the obvious. Like I said, I haven’t been following much lately.

  • laquida

    Thats great that vanessa and gaelan went to the basketball game!:) Thats nice their good friends love you nessapoo!:)

  • sophie

    no none of this is true, except they were costars in bandslam together, and are friends! many people believe zac and vanessa might just be taking a break to focus on their careers. no one knows for sure besides them.

  • Lilly

    Thanks, sophie, but are you sure? They look pretty cozy in a couple of those pictures.
