Zac Efron was quite the popular guy yesterday when he joined four lady friends for lunch in LA. The actor kicked back and had a few drinks with his pals amid rumors of his uncertain romantic status with longtime girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens. They supposedly parted ways in mid-December, but were spotted dancing at a club and having a hangout at her house this month. Regardless of their romantic status, they're both focusing on work and new projects. She's the just-announced face of Candie's, a job that formerly belonged to Britney Spears, and Zac is inspiring some new art and gearing up to shoot New Year's Eve with Michelle Pfeiffer.
