Miro, 27, when asked about what it was like to date Efron, who achieved considerable fame at a young age in High School Musical, admitted that it wasn’t the kind of dating experience she was accustomed to.

“I’ve never spoken about us before, but, um, it’s definitely different,” Miro told Elle, adding of the attention, “I think that you have to take that with a grain of salt, and put yourself in other people’s positions. I think that’s actually a really big part of it, putting yourself in their shoes, and trying to understand where they’re coming from, and then it kinds of makes sense.”

“It kind of just comes with the territory,” she added, “and I know there’s no really changing that, so you have to just embrace it… I’m not trying to hide anything in my life. If I was dating someone who wasn’t in the limelight, I might have more photos on [Instagram] of our relationship, but I do think it’s important. I mean, it’s what is going on in my life, and I think that my social media can still represent that.”

Now more than six months into her relationship with Efron, Miro says that the two enjoy shopping together – and even sharing clothes. “With Zac—we shop together all the time, and I just naturally like to pick out clothes—our styles have mixed together,” Miro said, after explaining that growing up with a single father saw her drawn towards men’s clothing. “I definitely do borrow some cool shirts and jackets of his, too so it works out really well.”

Miro, who dabbles in modeling, continued, “We kind of coordinate in a way. I think when you…hang out…you start to appreciate what the other person has to offer and clothing, because we’re both really into it, comes out in that way also.”

Prior to dating Miro, Efron was last linked to his close friend, Fast & Furious actress Michelle Rodriguez. He was previously in a longterm relationship with his High School Musical costar Vanessa Hudgens.
