The source said they had instant chemistry on set and Zac was attracted to his co-star because he thinks she is more 'mature and sophisticated' than the other women he's been with.

Earlier this month, Neighbors star Zac fueled dating speculation when he kissed the brunette beauty at the MTV Movie & TV Awards. 

As they waited to present together at the awards, the pair got cozy backstage.
