The 22-year-old actress partied the night away in the south of France at the Cannes Film Festival and revealed her big secret … but is this a bad idea?

Vanessa Hudgens is leaving her LA digs behind and moving to the Big Apple — possibly! The former Disney star attended the Calvin Klein Women in Independent Film event on May 13 at the Cannes Film Festival and she looked totally happy as she partied solo with girlfriend Rosario Dawson. But at the after party the starlet reportedly made a HUGE announcement …

“Guess who’s moving to Manhattan? Vanessa hudgens! Smart Girl,” E! News’ Cristina Gibson tweeted. “Because NYC is the best! She announced it during a party in Cannes.”

Although Vanessa’s rumored beau and Journey 2 co-star Josh Hutcherson was nowhere in sight, we couldn’t help but wonder if this has everything to do with her ex-boyfriend Zac Efron. The two split in December 2010 after dating for almost five years and is she finding it too hard to see him at events they both attend or to have run-ins at restaurants and parties. The two say they’re still good friends but maybe Vanessa  is finding it too hard to mend her heart when Zac’s that close by. Vanessa revealed in Shape‘s April issue that she and Zac didn’t fall out of love.

“Long-distance relationships are hard no matter what,” Vanessa told the mag. “When you don’t have face-to-face time, it’s just different. Having an iPhone helped, but it wasn’t the same.”

Vanessa’s rep tell us “there’s no truth” to reports that she is moving to New York. So is she or isn’t she?

If Vanessa moves to NYC do you think it’s to get over her heartbreak with Zac? But moving for a guy or to get over one is never a good idea — right?

Tell us what YOU think … should Vanessa think about this a bit more before rushing to pack her bags? Or will having him out of sight finally get him out of her mind?
