Zac must prefer hockey night over Jay-Z! Efron and girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens took in the Vancouver Giants game from a private box while the rapper performed at GM Place across town. The super-cute couple was joined by their friend – and High School Musical costar Lucas Grabeel as they cheered the hometeam to victory against the Prince George Cougars.

Earlier that day, the actress stepped out for lunch at Glowbal Grill for a bite – and a break from shopping in Yaletown.
Hugh Jackman got the VIP treatment at New York’s Metropolitan Opera. The hunky Aussie and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness were there to see Der Rosenkavalier but they also hung out backstage in a green room as guests of star Susan Graham, who said she met Jackman and his family recently on a flight from Tokyo to New York. While the opera singers were signing autographs at the stage door after the performance, Jackman tried to sneak off – but didn’t go unnoticed. A group of ladies swooned over the appreciative actor, telling him how much they adored him.
