The internet has been abuzz with speculation that 23-year-old Zac Efron is dating 22-year-old Rumer Willis, daughter of Hollywood superstars Bruce Willis and Demi Moore.

The actor was not available immediately for comment regarding his relationship status, but reports state that the two were quite close during a Willis family vacation to Turks & Caicos Parrot Island as long ago as last New Year's Eve.

While the two state they are "just friends," the media has jumped on this full force, alleging that Zac had a meeting with Rumer's mom, Demi, and brought her flowers. They have also been photographed several times over the years, fueling reports this relationship blossomed out of a longstanding friendship.

Zac dated High School Musical co-star Vanessa Hudgens for more than three years and many thought they were headed to the altar. But despite their best efforts to make things work, Zac and Vanessa split in 2010.

"Right off the bat we had a connection," revealed Hudgens to Glamour. "I think everybody could see it. When we had our audition, they paired us together and he was adorable."

She continued, "I think we inspire each other. I love having someone to grow with."

According to Efron, he is a one-woman man. He stated to Details, "Everyone tells me [to play the field], I think a lot of guys would enjoy that. But I'm not really like that." He most recently dated Taylor Schilling and has been linked to High School Musical co-star Ashley Tisdale.

Willis has had several high-profile relationships in the past several years with actors such as Rafi Gavron, Micah Alberti and Glee's Chord Overstreet. She made her feature film debut at age of seven alongside her mother in Now and Then. The following year, she worked with Demi Moore again, playing her daughter in Striptease. She has also acted alongside her father in the films The Whole Nine Yards and Hostage. She was Miss Golden Globe in 2008, an honor given to children of elite Hollywood actors and actresses.
