Since the news broke out about the A-lister actor’s newfound love, with waitress Vanessa Valladares, the actor has been keeping a low profile in Byron Bay.
As locals and tourists are on the lookout for the Hollywood star with his newfound love, his look-alike has been causing heads to turn and do a double-take on the street thinking it’s the actor. Daily Mail Australia reveals.
The high school musical star reportedly met new girlfriend Vanessa in July, when she was working as a waitress at the Byron Bay General Store Cafe.
The venue has since become a hotspot in Byron for those hoping to catch a rare glimpse of the actor and his newfound romance.
Several patrons were convinced last week that Zac had returned to the popular haunt for a quick takeaway coffee.
Several customers whispered and pointed at his way when a man they were convinced was Zac pacing the pathway outside the venue, wearing a hat tilted down to conceal his face.
One patron told Daily Mail Australia ‘we were sure it was him. He kept his distance from everyone and waited outside for his coffee order.
‘It wasn’t just us, either. Others were looking. But sadly it wasn’t him. When he looked up to drink his coffee and walk away, it was a look-alike. We were pretty embarrassed. We wished it was the real Zac!’
A waitress at the Byron Bay General Store Cafe, also confirmed Vanessa Valladares is no longer working there.
It is rumored Vanessa Valladares is staying with Zac at his rented Belongil Beach home.
Daily Mail Australia, last month, also revealed Zac had canceled a scheduled flight back to Los Angeles after his tourist visa extension was approved.
While Zac, 32, is living in Byron for the time being, he’s expected to return to America to film the Disney+ remake of Three Men and a Baby in the coming months.
We wish Zac a happily found love and wish this one leads to marriage.
