After a two-year hiatus, Efron was linked with actress Lily Collins. Before they co-starred in their Netflix project, "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile," Collins and Efron dated for a year between 2012 and 2013. Their relationship was reportedly casual and fizzled out in no time as they weren't in the same place emotionally.
