Following the Vanessa Hudgens nude photo scandal of 2007, some fans reacted in horror.
Other reacted with glee.
But one person familiar with the actress interpreted the pictures as a sign that her son was all grown up. The racy images, after all, were intended for the eyes of Zac Efron.
As a result, the High School Musical star told Elle magazine that his mother gave him a surprising, responsible gift this past holiday season.
"My stocking was full of condoms this Christmas. She buys me the economy box," he said.
The whole world now knows that Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens are having sex. But at least they're being safe about it.
