The last time Michelle Rodriguez was photographed smooching a hot young thing on vacation, the person was supermodel Cara Delevingne. Now, the actress is locking lips with Zac Efron. No, we didn't see that coming, either.
It's unclear just how long Rodriguez, 35, has been dating the 26-year-old heartthrob. The Neighbors star had recently been linked to actress Halston Sage, while Rodriquez's relationship with Delevingne ended this spring.
We were skeptical about this new coupling, too, until we saw the conclusive photo evidence. Click through to see the PDA that launched a thousand Internet rumors.

They're just so...cozy. The familiarity and pose remind us of vintage Zac Efron/Vanessa Hudgens vacation photos from back in the day. This could just be a holiday romance between celebs boasting two of the best bods in the business, but their mutual love of fitness might be the exact reason it works. Ahead, an investigation of how these two came together — and the mysterious Italian businessman who appears to be playing matchmaker.
Efron and Rodriguez have been on a European jaunt with Italian entrepreneur Gianluca Vacchi for several weeks now. Between turning down for what and luxury yachting, it's a serious fit-cation. While it's unclear how they each met Vacchi (though Rodriguez was photographed on a similar yacht trip in 2011), we followed his social media trail and found several hints as to what may have brought them all together for a group vacay.
Gianluca is passionate about exercise and his carefully curated life. He even hashtags all of his photos with #GVlifestyle, and his YouTube page is full of videos showing off his finely honed workout regimen. You don't have to be Sherlock Holmes to deduce that Zac Efron is a total fitness buff — and our eyeballs thank him for it. In fact, if Vacchi's the one who's responsible for Zac's body in Neighbors, then we may owe him an Edible Arrangement.
It looks like Vacchi also dabbles in matchmaking — he's even got Rodriguez manning the camera while Efron shows off his skills. This is one couple's vacation photo slideshow we don't mind watching. Whether or not they'll continue their relationship back home remains to be seen, but for now, things are getting fast and furious in Sardinia. Sorry, we couldn't resist. (Daily Mail)
