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.'
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.'
