More Zac Efron excerpts from his Elle feature. When Zac heard that his idol Leonardo DiCaprio was going to be honored as one of GQ's Men of the Year, he showed up at the party: Zac: 'He was the only reason I went. I thought maybe I'd get to shake his hand. No one had seen Leo, and I was walking out and he walked right by. I was all, 'Oh, hey!'
He turned around and right there I had the 'in,' and I was like, 'I just want to shake your hand, dude, I'm a big fan.. I'd love to sit down and talk with you sometime.' And he goes, 'Right on.' A few nights later, I was at a Lakers
game and I texted him, and he said he was coming.
This guy in a ball cap and coat with the collar up sits next to me. We talked
the whole game, and he was just everything I thought he would be: smart, levelheaded, charming, hilarious. You know, the older-brother vibe.' Zac shakes his head. 'That sounds so cheesy.'
Me and Orson Welles director Richard Linklater: 'This is the movie where Zac loses his virginity on-screen. Here he is, this kid from California stepping into a group of accomplished British actors, and he was so not intimidated. Zac's like a really good poker player. Don't underestimate him. All bodes well for a long career. Of course, it would be more fun for the culture if he had a lot of problems.'
Zac Efron talked to Elle [Via Access Hollywood] about his sex shop pictures:
'It was Hallows Eve like, two years ago. It was just a costume store. In the back they have an adult section for adult costumes. This nice older woman asked for a photo.' When Zac's mother Starla saw the photos, she wondered he was doing there. 'My mom is like, 'Zac, what did you buy in a sex shop?'
I was like 'Mom, calm down, it's not a sex shop.' She wouldn't have any of it. She's like, 'I knew you were being sexual!' But she understood. My stocking
was full of condoms this Christmas. She buys me the economy box.'
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
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.'
Long haired Zac Efron met up with a girl [Danielle Panabaker?] at Hugo's in West Hollywood, Tuesday afternoon. According to a National Enquirer insider: 'Zac proposed to Vanessa during a joint trip to Japan in late January The two
are planning a long engagement and will tie the knot in 2010.
Zac hasn't given Vanessa a ring yet, but he's hoping the proposal will buy him some time with Vanessa's super-strict mom, Gina, who didn't approve of the sweethearts living together before they were married.' Photos: Fame. 10+
