Zac Efron was photographed giving his former High School Musical co-star Ashley Tisdale a piggy back ride at her 26th birthday party on Saturday, and we know the two are just friends, but these photos really took us by surprise!
Ashley had her birthday bash at a friend's Malibu beach pad, and the starlet tweeted, “So happy zacary made it to my party!!! He’s my brother/best friend!!!” She certainly did a good job shooting down the hookup rumors before they even started, but still! After checking out the look on her face, we're not 100% convinced that these two are strictly platonic...
Then again, who WOULDN'T have an expression like this while riding on Zac's buff biceps?!
Would you like to see these two as more than friends? Either way, this is pretty much the best birthday present ever ... lucky girl!
