Zac Efron: “I Just Can’t See What’s So Wrong About Being Gay”

Zac Efron sat down with The Advocate magazine, and gave a shout out to his gay fan base. The actor voiced his support for same-sex marriage, and the gay community. “It’s very flattering. After High School Musical and Hairspray, I’ve always felt embraced by the gay community, and I feel incredibly grateful and honored.”

Efron admits he first became aware of his following after starring in ‘High School Musical’. “I think the gay audience related to my character Troy, because it really was a story of embracing who you are, no matter how different you might be, and not being afraid to show it. That’s a universal theme for everyone, but it specifically resonated with the gay community, and I felt very proud of that.”

Growing up in California, a young Efron found his passion in musical theater. During that time, he also realized “being gay was just another way you can be. I never really had time to think about it or have any preconceived notions. I don’t judge anyone and I never have.”

“I might’ve been less aware of it back then,” the 24-year-old adds, “but without question I had gay role models.”

Though he was in a relationship with High School Musical‘s Vanessa Hudgens, 23, from 2007 to 2010, and briefly romanced Lily Collins, 23, in early 2012, Efron’s own sexual orientation has sometimes been questioned. The actor, who is straight, isn’t bothered by the rumors. “I don’t like to live in fear about things like rumors and backlash to begin with — that’s the way I was raised — but I just can’t see what’s so wrong about being gay,” Efron says.

Expressing his support for legalizing same-sex marriage, Efron tells The Advocate, “It’s an issue that affects so many people in my life — a lot of my close friends and some of the most influential people around me. I just want them all to be happy. It would make me so happy to see them able to live their lives and do what they want to do.”

A mustached Zac Efron vacations with friends while vacationing in Saint-Tropez, France

Zac Efron spent his Fourth of July with friends in the French Riviera! The actor was spotted with a mustache, hanging with a group of guys at St. Tropez’s Club 55. The restaurant is a celeb hangout, and after eating hopped on a boat and took off. Once on the yacht, Zac stripped down and lounged with some friends.

This is the second trip to the South of France that Zac’s made in recent months. He also attended the Cannes Film Festival in May in support of his upcoming movie The Paperboy. Zac’s current trip overseas meant he missed out on his friend and former High School Musical costar Ashley Tisdale’s 27th birthday party earlier this week in Malibu. Zac was on hand for the festivities last year, but this time around, Ashley celebrated with a bikini-clad Selena Gomez and her boyfriend, Scott Speer

Nicole Kidman, Matthew McConaughey and Zac Efron promote ‘The Paperboy’ in Cannes!

Nicole Kidman, Matthew McConaughey and Zac Efron were spotted yesterday afternoon at a photocall for their new movie, ‘The Paperboy’. Nicole looks amazing, if you ask me. She’s wearing a Antonio Berardi Fall 2012 dress. What do you think?

I think this is my favorite hair color on Nicole. Not red, not blonde, but a beautiful blend of the two. She looks great.

I can’t wait to see this movie!
