Zac Efron opens up about his addiction issues

Zac Efron opens up about his addiction issues

Zac Efron recently talked to the “Hollywood Reporter” about his struggles with addiction and now he’s saying that talking about his problems gave him a sense of relief. He talked to Matt Lauer on the “Today” show and said that he is glad that his story is out in the public eye.

He said, “You know what, actually, it was a weight off my chest, I think. It was great. It was a fantastic time. It was a rough year. It’s kind of funny – you know, ‘Neighbors’ is such a great sort of icing on the cake for all this. I was able to kind of channel all of that and put it back into this movie. And I feel great. I feel really blessed to be here working with this group of guys. I don’t know – it couldn’t be better right now.”

Us Weekly reports:

Costar Dave Franco (James Franco’s younger brother) agreed, saying he thinks this film will be great for his image. “I’m really excited for Zac, just because I know a lot of people have this preconception of who he is, and once you see this movie, I think his teenybopper image is going to be completely shattered, and all these new projects that wouldn’t have come to him otherwise are just going to flood [in].”

As previously reported, Efron secretly completed a brief stint in rehab back in April 2013, for problems with cocaine and alcohol. “I was drinking a lot, way too much,” he told THR. “It’s never one specific thing. I mean, you’re in your 20s, single, going through life in Hollywood, you know? Everything is thrown at you. I wouldn’t take anything back; I needed to learn everything I did,” he said. “But it was an interesting journey, to say the least.”

Zac Efron opens up about life after rehab

Zac Efron opens up about life after rehab

Now that Zac Efron is out of rehab and is getting his life back in order, he wants his fans to know that he actually likes being sober.

When speaking about rehab and his life of sobriety, he said, “I went in. Today, I’m good.”

When asked if he still enjoys alcoholic beverages, he said, “No. I like being completely sober.”

When addressing reports from his ‘friends”, he said, “Maybe there are some people who are not my friends anymore, probably? That’s my only way to extrapolate from that. Because my parents are stoked. All my roommates are stoked. The people I work with, the people I really care about are so much happier. And I feel so much better, so whoever my ‘friends’ are who are ‘really worried’, I’m sorry.”

In his new movie “Bad Neighbors”, he plays a party-loving president of a fraternity who terrorizes his neighbors. Of that, he said it wasn’t hard to be around alcohol. He added, “If anything I was able to put it somewhere. It’s fun to take it too far. In your work and – especially in your work. But it’s just the way you grow up, I think. You learn.”

Zac Efron Opens Up About His ‘Interesting Journey’

Zac Efron Drops By BBC Radio One

Anyone who has seen the High School Musical franchise and Hairspray, can attest that Zac Efron is an extremely talented young man.  He can sing, he can dance, he can act, and he’s not to rough on the eyes to boot.  But, like many young stars, he seems to have faced and/or be facing some of the demons that can haunt anyone, but particularly those who have money to spend and too many people telling them ‘yes.’  Efron, whose movie, Neighbors, will be out in theaters later this month, sat down with Hollywood Reporter to discuss his career and journey through the perils of Hollywood.

“I was drinking a lot, way too much,” he says, acknowledging there were drugs, too. “It’s never one specific thing. I mean, you’re in your 20s, single, going through life in Hollywood, you know? Everything is thrown at you. I wouldn’t take anything back; I needed to learn everything I did. But it was an interesting journey, to say the least.”

He talks about his next steps and moving forward with his life.

As he tries to change, he is living an ultrafit life, using weights and a rowing machine, and swimming 20 laps a day. He has the type of regimen that makes older men weep — working out daily, eating healthily and even drinking pH-balanced water from a specially installed alkaline faucet.

He gets ready for bed around 9 p.m., when he’ll watch a movie and read a script, turning in before some of his peers even rise because “I like to get up early and swim and train.”

He has joined Alcoholics Anonymous and also has been seeing a therapist. “I just started going,” he says. “And I think it’s changed my life. I’m much more comfortable in my own skin. Things are so much easier now.”

Still, he admits of his battle with addiction, “It’s a never-ending struggle.”

Efron also recounts his initial meeting with costar Seth Rogen years ago.

Efron and Rogen met six or seven years ago at the Sunset Tower, where both were attending an awards party, when Efron was riding the High School Musical bandwagon. “He passed me, and I just stopped and was compelled to say something,” recalls Efron. “I blurted out: ‘Hey, Seth, my name’s Zac. I’m an actor, and I just wanted to tell you that I really love your work. And thank you for everything you’ve done.’ “

Rogen looked up in shock. “And he goes, ‘Are you serious?’ ” continues Efron. “And I was like, ‘Yes, I’m 100 percent serious.’ And he goes, ‘Aw, man, I just wanted to hate you.’ And I’m like, ‘Seth, I get it. I don’t even like myself at this point.’ “

‘Neighbors’ Premieres in Los Angeles

"Neighbors" - Los Angeles Premiere

Neighbors’ premiered in Los Angeles yesterday, and the stars were on hand to promote the film.  I think this movie looks really funny.  Seth Rogen always makes me laugh and Zac Efron is just hot (though I do worry about him going off the deep end).  I suspect they utilized both men’s talents to the fullest.  In other news- Rogen’s wife, Lauren Miller is beautiful.  She reminds me of Jessica Biel.  And you know who else I love?  Dave Franco.  He steals the show in all his roles.  I know very little of Halston Sage other than that she’s flawless and allegedly dating Zac Efron.

Well hello there, Zac Efron!

FFN_KM_MTV_Awd_041314_51383081

Why is it that Zac Efron always looks like he’s up to something? Like he’s in on some joke or getting one over on us and thinks he’s really clever? I’m not quite sure, but that cheeky grin was still there at last night’s MTV Movie Awards!

He kept it pretty casual with his fashion choices, but when you look like that, I suppose you can wear whatever you want!
