Zac Efron featured in GQ May 2009 issue of GQ. Interview here. 3+ ‘I never half- ass anything. And every time I do, it always comes back to haunt me. Whatever I’m focused on is what I will succeed at. When I was in school, I told myself I’d get good grades, I got great grades. When I started doing this, you learn.
You can’t help but recognize what the people that are better than you do. Every film is a challenge. You have to acquire new skills. You have to put your ass out there. And that’s what I wanna do next.’.
On high school drama: ‘Kids who are in musical theater tend to be self-
confident in a quirky kind of way, and when kids who are really self-conscious see somebody doing that kind of thing, they try to bring them down. I used to do random things, man. When I was a kid? I dyed my hair silver, to look like SisQó in the ‘Thong Song’ video. I just didn’t give a f***. I didn’t care.‘
On not wearing makeup: ‘If somebody can find any photo that shows me wearing false eyelashes. I’ll give them a f***ing million dollars. That’s bull****.’
On getting married to Vanessa in Kauai: ‘That was such bull****. I’m definitely not getting married. In this business, you’re either getting married or they want you to be pregnant. I’m not getting married until I’m 40. If ever.. Maybe not 40. Maybe not until I’m 30.’
