LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Vanessa Hudgens will make her first appearance at the San Diego Comic-Con International this week to promote “Watchmen” director Zack Snyder’s “Sucker Punch,” and boyfriend Zac Efron says the fans won’t know what hit ‘em.
“She’s kicking mad butt,” Zac told AccessHollywood.com’s Laura Saltman at the premiere of his own new film, “Charlie St. Cloud,” in LA on Tuesday night. “It’s insane. She has a scene with a tomahawk. It’s all her doing the action.”
The former “High School Musical” stars have dated since their days five years ago on the first installment of the Disney franchise, and Zac said they’re still going strong.
“We’re having fun,” he said. “It’s kind of effortless. We don’t really have to try that hard.”
Pressed for the secret to their relationship success, Vanessa herself told Laura the two were “extremely lucky.”
“He’s an amazing guy and inspires me,” she said. “It’s a good thing to have around.”
However, don’t think the two young lovebirds are ready to settle down and start a family — at least, not yet.
“I’m 21. It’s way too early. I’m happy,” she previously told Access Hollywood over the weekend at the Neutrogena Wave for Change campaign kickoff.
And while Zac praised Vanessa’s latest role, she was quick to return the kind words.
“I can’t wait for everybody to see it,” she said of “Charlie St. Cloud,” due in theaters on July 30. “[Zac is] fantastic.”
Vanessa’s “Sucker Punch,” which also stars Carla Gugino, Jon Hamm and Emily Browning, among others, is scheduled for release on March 25, 2011.
