Selena Gomez and Lily Collins were spotted chowing down on In & Out Burgers at the Vanity Fair Oscars After Party. Interestingly, these 2 lovely ladies are more than ordinary BFFs. They share a 6 degrees of separation connection through teen heart-throbs Taylor Lautner and Zac Efron.
On February 26, someone snapped a photo of La Gomez and the Abduction starlet, Lily Collins breaking their diets after the tension of the Academy Awards was over. Later, Selena posted the pic on her Instagram account with a cute caption that seemed to say it all.
"Yep. Classy gals chillen at the Vanity Fair Oscar party," Selena wrote.
What Selena didn't mention in her caption was what the "classy gals" probably talked about while they were scarfing back the fast food. Justin Bieber's girlfriend and Zac Efron's rumored squeeze have a couple of major degrees of separation in their pasts. One of them is Taylor Lautner.
Selena dated the "other Twilight Saga heart-throb" for several months back in 2009. Collins and Lautner met last year on the Abduction set, and they also dated briefly. Alas, their affair ended at about the same time as the filming of the movie.
Oh well, everything ends. But Lautner isn't the only degree of separation shared by La Gomez and La Collins. Collins' current is-he-or-isn't-he? boyfriend, Zac Efron was once Selena Gomez's ultimate crush. Back in her pre-Biebs days, Selena was, by her own admission, so enamored of all things Efron that she thought of him and referred to him as her husband. Wow, now that's delusional--er--a heavy-duty crush.
Of course, no one will ever know if the girls dished on details about their mutual ex, Lautner, and/or the perpetually popular Mr. Efron--least of all the men in question. Unless of course, the poor guys' ears were burning on Sunday night.
Note to Selena Gomez: Aren't you supposed to lay off that junk food, Girl?
