Vanessa and Austin know how to PDA with a capital P! But has she really been trying to win Zac back all along? Experts weigh in!

There may be more going on behind Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler‘s PDA than what meets the eye.

After we heard that Zac Efron, 24, opened up to People magazine about his relationship with Vanessa, 23, we immediately thought he totally wants her back.

“We were in love,”Zac said.

But according to experts — two can play that game.

“You have to wonder also if she’s on purpose getting her photo taken with this new boyfriend,” Dr. Carole Lieberman, a celebrity psychologist, also tells

If Vanessa was so in love with Austin — they wouldn’t so public about it, one expert says.

“People who are really happy and in love don’t have to go flaunting it,” Dr. Gilda Carle,’s 30 Second Therapist and a relationship expert from, tells

Hmm! But if the two did decide they wanted to get back together — would it work out?

“Well they would have to be grown up, a lot more grown up than they are now,” Dr. Gilda tells us. “Anything is possible. People screw it up and they come back together again years later… but you have to give it time.”

Personally, I’d love to the two get back together! And I definitely think Vanessa has been trying to get Zac’s attention by publicly slobbering on Austin.
