    The actor recently opened up to Shape about where she's at in her life when it comes to love and — most importantly — loving herself.

    "Where I am now is better than I could have dreamed of," she said. "My relationship with myself is something I value deeply, even if things don't always go the way I expected."

    Hudgens went on to explain that she "always thought" she was going to be married by the time she turned 25 because that's what her mother did — but "[T]hat didn't happen."

    "I'm in such an amazing, healthy relationship, so it doesn't matter," she explained while mentioning her relationship with MLB player Cole Tucker. "What I've discovered is that we all have these ideas—and if they don't happen, then there's a reason why."

    "Learning that has been extremely helpful to my growth. I'm very grateful every day for where I am in this moment of my life."
