‘I remember in quarantine I was like, “Cool so I’m single now and I can’t meet anybody.” I was like, “I guess I’ll go on a dating app, but I always said I would never go on a dating app” and then I find myself on a dating app and I was like, “I hate myself, I’ve got to get off of that” and then I kind of just gave up for a minute,’ she explained about her failed efforts at staying single.

‘My girlfriend was on this Zoom meditation group weekly, and she was like, “Would you want to hop on?” And I was like, “Of course I love that,” and they added me to a group text,’ the Spring Breakers star told the talk show host.

Then there was a gif in the group chat of a baseball player sliding into a base and she thought it was a joke so she responded, ‘Hot.’

‘And then I get on the Zoom and I am like, “Who is that?” And we started talking and yeah it’s wild that we found each other over Zoom,’ she recalled.

When Barrymore asked about how she navigated starting their relationship over DMs, Hudgens said it wasn’t an issue.

‘I mean I’m such a go getter. If I want something or someone I’m going after them. I fully just slid into his DMs and was like, “Hey it was nice to meet you,”‘ she said.

The star admitted she has no qualms about making the first move with a person she’s interested in: ‘I think there is no shame in making the first move. If you want it why wait for someone else to give you what you want.’

She’s been spending time in Florida over the last few months while her new love completes spring training.
