Vanessa Hudgens is happy to sacrifice romantic dates with boyfriend Zac Efron for outings to basketball games – because she loves the sport. The “High School Musical” stars have been dating for four years, since meeting on the set of the movie. The pair still go out on dates and are regularly spotted courtside at Los Angeles Lakers’ home games.

And Hudgens admits she like nothing more than cuddling up to Efron while watching the sport. She tells Britain’s Cosmopolitan magazine, “I love going to the basketball. I’m such a fan of the L.A. Lakers and whenever we go it’s because we’ve bummed tickets off other people and we get to sit courtside. It’s my favourite night out.”
