Zac Efron, ‘I Didn’t Want To Be Famous’

Zac Efron featured in the USA Weekend: ‘I’m at a transition point. My taste is changing. I’m growing up. For a while, I felt lost in celebrity-land. I didn’t know how to handle it. I saw it as a more complex part that could help me shift into adult material.’

On celebrity life: ‘I didn’t want to be famous. I get sick of seeing my own face around.

“I used to get so frustrated. For a while, I felt like I was completely lost in celebrity-land. I didn’t know how to handle it. Now I know I have to plot where I’m going, when I’m going there and where the back entrance is. It’s like I’m playing a giant game of tag.’

His early life: ‘I played sports on weekends  baseball, basketball, and when I sucked at those, I started playing golf and ping-pong in the garage. After I lost interest, I started singing. I was always singing to the point where my parents would shout, ‘Shut up, Zac! Enough already!”

On his acting skills: ‘I’m definitely not the best actor in the world at this point.
But hopefully, with time and effort and smart decisions, that will all change.’

    I actually like Zac a lot more now after reading this. I usually just look at him and think of the awkward looking kid from Summerland with the gap but he’s actually pretty ok.

    Decent actor too. Didn’t like him with that whole High School Musical frenzy, but he’s pretty ok now.
