Is "High School Musical" starlet Vanessa Hudgens already signed on to star as Leah Clearwater in the "Twilight sequel," "New Moon?" At last night's Oscars, "Extra's" Mario Lopez cleared up the rumors when he caught up with Hudgens on the red carpet.
Hudgens declared, "It's still a rumor. I'm really interested, I think it's a great project but nothing's happening as of now." When asked if she's a fan of the movie, Hudgens responded, "Yes love it. My sister has read all of the books, too."

"High School Musical" hunk Zac Efron is finally old enough to bar hop and sip on champagne, but don't expect the Disney star to fall into young Hollywood's club scene.
The blue-eyed teen idol rang in his 21st birthday by opting for an intimate dinner with family and friends rather than an all-night club bash. He hosted a group of friends at L.A.'s Pace restaurant, including his family, girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens, "HSM 3" co-stars Ashley Tisdale and Monique Coleman, and fellow actors Michelle Trachtenberg, Amanda Bynes and Brittany Snow.
Vanessa, who helped plan the birthday party, left the restaurant with Zac right before midnight, when the hand-holding duo disappeared into a car.
At the "HSM 3" premiere in L.A., Efron's co-star KayCee Stroh revealed that Zac was planning to celebrate with something low-key. "We're definitely going to party it up," she told People magazine, "but he's that guy that would rather sit down with friends and have a good discussion than deal with the craziness."
