Pictures of Zac Efron when he was young. Daily Record interview: ‘I think when I was 17 we started High School Musical. That was very much the beginning. I didn’t know what I was getting into at all. I was a pretty standard teenager, I’m not just saying that. I had a very standard high school experience for a typical guy.

I looked like a kid, a kind of awkward, lanky, little kid. A late
bloomer. I wasn’t a geek and I wasn’t the coolest kid in school. I was
somewhere in-between. I was not in any particular clique. I didn’t hang
out with the coolest kids. I wasn’t necessarily the subject of bullying, but I’ve witnessed it a
whole lot.

I still do at times in life. It doesn’t stop
happening at school, it can happen with adults. I have a brother, Dylan. There have been a couple of times
where I’ve been out with him and someone has said a couple of words to
him that weren’t nice, and I’ve had words back. Bullying is one thing
I hate in human nature.

Personally if I had to deal with it, it never got to a situation where
it could be considered bullying because I would find some clever way
around it. I tend to make a joke. I defer everything with laughter. Even when it’s blatantly disrespectful, I would just laugh it off, to
avoid all confrontation..

..and I still use that on a daily basis. I was not the heart-throb of the class in any way and not a total geek, I fell somewhere in-between. I was just a regular kid. My life was set, I was going to go to college, I was going to try to do something great, like be a doctor.’

On college: ‘It didn’t really work out. I decided after I
had done High School Musical and after I had done a couple of films
that I wanted to go to college to study films. I had friends in the program and they just raved about it.

I was so
jealous that they were there. After I was accepted to go, I was
deferred for one year and since then, I haven’t really had time to go
back. I’m studying films on a daily basis now but in a very different

On ‘older woman’ 17 Again costar Leslie Mann: ‘After five minutes of talking
with Leslie, I had a crush on her. She so natural and funny and sweet. She is very interesting. That was one thing about working with her. Leslie is unlike any actress I’ve worked with before.’
