Austin Butler and Vanessa Hudgens hit the star-studded red carpet at the 95th Academy Awards on Sunday.
The former couple apparently avoided each other on the Oscars champagne carpet three years after their split in January 2022.
The Elvis star, 31, dated the High School Musical actress, 34, from 2011 to 2020.
Although she hasn’t met Vanessa Austin, the Princess Switch actress has caught up with Elvis director Baz Luhrmann ahead of the 2023 Oscars.
After the moment, fans tweeted, “THEY LEFT AUSTIN FOR THE LAST INTERVIEW ON THE CARPET BUT THEY SEND HIM TO ASHLEY GRAHAM WHO ASKED WHERE KAY WAS.
A lot of people said, “The biggest bummer at the Oscars is that Austin Butler didn’t interview Vanessa Hudgens on the carpet.”
Another wrote: “They didn’t want to put Austin Butler and Vanessa Hudgens on screen together.”
In an interview with the Los Angeles Times earlier this year, the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actor credited his former lover for encouraging him to play the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll in the biopic.
Speaking about who inspired her to take on the role, Austin said: “I was with my partner at the time.”
Referring to Vanessa, he said, “That’s right. We’ve been together for a long time and he had this moment of clairvoyance, so I really owe it to him for believing in me.”
