Zac Efron and Michelle Rodriguez have reportedly bonded over their past issues.
The 26-year-old actor and 36-year-old actress have sparked romance rumors after they were spotted kissing and flirting while in Sardinia recently. They have apparently known each other since 2011, and as they have both spent time in rehab they understand where the other is coming from.
“They’re so comfortable with each other – that’s why it started,” an insider told British magazine Heat. “They’ve bonded over the problems they’ve had in the past and were there for each other when they had break-ups. Michelle gets what Zac’s still going through and doesn’t judge him. They also both love motorcycles, hanging out and being sporty – it just works. He doesn’t care that she’s bisexual. If anything, he loves how free she is.”
Zac sought professional help for addiction issues last year, while Michelle was sentenced to an alcohol rehabilitation program in relation to a probation violation in 2006.
Earlier this year Michelle dated British model Cara Delevingne, with the actress confirming the romance in February. Things fizzled out a few months later and it’s claimed she moved on with Zac early last month.
“They started hooking up on 12 June, at the after-party for The Rover,” the source claimed. “They were flirting and that’s when things moved to the next level.”
The pair have been photographed looking cozy on a yacht, locking lips in a nightclub and riding horses together. They apparently find it easy to be relaxed in each other’s company.
“They’re infatuated with each other, partly because they’ve known each other for such a long time,” the insider said.
