Random is the overwhelming word of choice being used this week to describe Zac Efron and Michelle Rodriguez's hot new romance. But is it the most accurate term to describe the coupling of the 26-year-old heartthrob and the Hollywood tough chick, who turns 36 on July 12?
We must admit: It did seem very odd (and yes, quite random) to see pics of the pair kissing and engaging in other forms of PDA on a boat off the coast of Sardinia over the weekend.
We found out last week that Zac and Michelle were on an extended vacation together (along with Italian businessman Gianluca Vacchi and girlfriend Giorgia Gabriele) after seeing the viral video of the actor dancing to Jason Derulo's "Wiggle" while Michelle looked on inside Gianluca's home. At the time, we chalked it up to a couple of Hollywood friends having a good time.
Who could have predicted this? Certainly not anyone who has been keeping tabs on Zac's love life. It was just a month ago that the California native was spotted at a Los Angeles movie theater on a date with a mystery woman. Even that surprised us, as the "Neighbors" star most often dates well-known ingénues like Halston Sage, Lily Collins, Teresa Palmer and his most famous girlfriend, Vanessa Hudgens.
