“HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY LOVE @ashleytisdale,” the 30-year-old captioned a selfie of them together. “We’ve done so much life together. Can’t imagine it any other way. So excited to see what this year brings you, love. You deserve the world. Love yooou.” Of course, the 34-year-old replied back. “I love you so much,” she wrote, along with two heart emojis.
Ashley and Vanessa played Sharpay and Gabriella, respectively, in the hit Disney movies — High School Musical, High School Musical 2 and High School Musical 3. Naturally, social media went crazy over their reunion. One person wrote, “OMG, what we all needed,” while another echoed, “THIS COMPLETED ME.” A third person chimed in, writing, “True friendship never ends.”
The two have remained close ever since, and Vanessa was even a bridesmaid at Ashley’s 2014 wedding to Christopher French. “We are like the ultimate duo. We have a very genuine friendship, and you don’t see that,” Ashley told TooFab in May as to why fans love seeing them together all these years later. “It’s rare to work with someone years ago and still be friends with them. I think it just makes everyone so excited to see us.”
The “Voices in My Head” crooner doesn’t take her friendship with the brunette beauty for granted, either. “For me, she’s like the Queen of Coachella, so whenever I’m there, I have to spend time with her,” she added. “I literally joked with her like, ‘You have to kiss the ring,’ she laughs about it, but she’s such a good time, and I just love spending time with her.”
In 2017, The Princess Switch actress mentioned she wouldn’t mind working with her bestie again. “Things are a little busy right now with Powerless, but somewhere down the line, it would be so much fun,” she told Entertainment Tonight at the time. “We love each other so much.”
Well, we will just be patiently waiting over here, then!
