Zac Efron he is not!
It looks like Ashley Tisdale's taste in men is about as far from that of her High School Musical alter ego Sharpay as humanly possible, as evidenced by her recent acceptance of a proposal from rocker boyfriend Christopher French.
Us Weekly reports that Christopher, the lead singer of indie band Annie Automatic, is all the things Ashley likes in a guy — tall, dark, handsome, and, above all, edgy.
"She is in love with the 'darker, bad boy' types, and him being just that is why she has always been attracted to him," a source close to the couple reveals. "He is still a gentleman, though. [He] holds out her chair for her, holds the door, etc. but is still edgy, which is why they mesh."
Ashley and Christopher, who announced their engagement on Thursday, August 8, following Christopher's proposal on the 103rd floor of the Empire State Building, have been together since December 2012.
"Best night of my life. We're on top of the world," Ashley said of the romantic proposal.
"Thank you guys for all your well wishes. Means so much to me. We're so grateful and excited," she wrote.
