Zac Efron Kisses Rebel Wilson

Okay, Zac. We’re Lakers fans, too. 

Zac Efron tweeted a photo of himself kissing Rebel Wilson, saying:

“She’s a Lakers fan, too? I think I’m in love.”

At a Lakers game last Tuesday, Zac Efron made Rebel Wilson’s night by giving her a kiss on the cheek…or the side of her cheek.

Though it looked like a friendly kiss, we bet many girls would have denounced their NBA team just to trade places with the Bridesmaids actress.

The Australian actress also tweeted this photo—which Zac retweeted—saying:

“Half time at Lakers hanging with main man…”

Nice exchange of tweets between the two. Did they leave Staples Center together? Nope. But it was a fun moment they had there!

Rebel was joined by a co-star, while Zac sat beside a female friend for the rest of the game. Afterwards, he was seen leaving the venue wearing a big grin and a Lakers cap.

Final score? 84-82. In favor of the Spurs.

Zac Efron Not a Natural: He Outworks the Opposition

Oh, rubbish!

Zac Efron has certainly come a long way from his High School Musical days. He’s gone from singing pop songs while dancing with a basketball in a high school gym to acting (in his underwear) alongside big Hollywood names like Nicole Kidman, John Cusack, and Matthew McConaughey in his new film, The Paperboy.

But the 24-year-old hunk doesn’t believe that his talent got him there—it was all pure hard work.

Zac, who looks dashing in a sexy gray suit on the cover of Backstage magazine’s latest issue, admits:

“I might not be the greatest actor, but I walk into every project willing to work hard. There are a lot of people who can slide on talent their whole lives; they’re just naturally gifted. I’ve never considered myself one of those people. I enjoy outworking the opposition.”

Apart from working hard, the 17 Again star knows that his success—and his longevity in the movie business—all depend on his ability to remain an actor… and not a celebrity. This means no public scandals, rehab stints, and rumors of diva behavior—all of which Zac has managed to avoid in the six years that he has been in showbiz. He shares:

“I know I’ve been lucky. But it’s what you do with that luck afterwards that really defines whether you stick around.”

On his role in The Paperboy, which is his most adult film role to date, Zac says:

“It’s crucial for me to be finding roles that I don’t necessarily have the answers to. I’m proud to say I was courageous enough to step into a part I didn’t fully understand and followed my director blindly.”

Though he’s taken on a diverse collection of films since his High School Musical days, the blue-eyed hottie reveals that it will be a long time before he starts accepting roles in a big budget movie franchise. He explains:

“It’s not that I’m opposed to doing a big-budget action movie. But it has to be the right project. I don’t know that I’ve earned the right to hold a gun, if that makes sense. I need to pay my dues.”

 

Zac Efron Teaches Elmo Patience on Sesame Street(1)

Zac Efron Teaches Elmo Patience

Look, it’s Zac on Sesame Street!

Yes, you read that right! On Friday, the actor made a cameo on the said PBS Kids series. The 24-year-old hunk took a trip down memory lane by visiting his favorite (we assume so) street when he was young! Seems like he’s also found a best friend in Elmo!

In the episode, Elmo tries to convince the actor to shoot some hoops with him, but Efron tries to calm Elmo down by teaching him the art of patience, he says to Elmo and to the audience:

“The word ‘patience’ means to wait in a calm way.”

He adds:

“Elmo really wants to play basketball, but he’s waiting in a calm way — he’s showing patience.”

After Efron  taught a patience  lesson to Elmo and the kids, the two  headed to a basketball court to play some b-ball.

Seems like not only kids watched that episode, huh?

Zac Efron Celebrated the 4th of July in France

Zac Efron may have been out of the country, but the star did find some time to celebrate his country’s Independence Day.

Last Wednesday, the former High School Musical star was spotted partying on a yacht in St. Tropez, France. The 24-year-old, The Lucky One actor was seen in navy-blue swimming trunks with a fresh mustache and a bare torso.

This isn’t the first time Efron has been seen in the European country. Last May, he attended the Cannes Film Festival to help promote his film The Paperboy, in which he co-starred with Nicole Kidman and Matthew McConaughey.

The singer/actor has also reportedly split from his on-again/off-again girlfriend, Lily Collins. Is he looking for a new love the same way his ex-girlfriend, Vanessa Hudgens, did?
