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!

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!

Chord Overstreet vs. Zac Efron

Chord Overstreet  Celebrates His Birthday At TAO

Are high-school acting heartthrobs battling it out over a girl?  Probably not, but Glee star Chord Overstreet has reportedly split with his girlfriend, Halston Sage, shortly after she was spotted at a Lakers game with High School Musical star, Zac Efron last Friday.

Chord and Halston’s uncoupling came to light after she was spotted out with Zac Efron at a Los Angeles Lakers game on Friday evening.

An inside source close to the star could not confirm if Sage was dating the High School Musical hunk, despite them being seen together having a good time.

It was short-lived relationship for Chord and Halston, who had only been dating since January.

Efron and Halston could easily be in the friend category, as they are both appearing in the upcoming film, Neighbors.  Efron’s got my vote… if he can get that drug problem under control.  Please get that drug problem under control Zac!

Zac Efron to Replace Shia LaBeouf

Zac Efron Emerges After Recent Skid Row Fight

Another John Grisham book adaptation is heading to the theaters.  That Awkward Moment star, Zac Efron, will be producing and starring in The Associate, which was published in early 2009.  According to The Hollywood Reporter, 

The story follows a Yale Law School grad (Efron) who is blackmailed by a group of criminals. He’s told he must take a job at the world’s largest law firm, where he’ll be spying on their work in a dispute between two powerful defense contractors worth billions.

Efron will produce via his Ninja’s Runnin Wild banner (That Awkward Moment), and Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher (the producers behind the recent YA hit Divergent) will produce through Red Wagon Entertainment. Michael Simkin and Nicki Cortese will oversee development.

The Associate was originally going to be a Paramount film, starring Shia LaBeouf.  This news comes after Efron’s recent involvement in a fight on Skid Row.  Hopefully the young, handsome and talented actor can focus on his career rather than more troubling extra-curriculars… LaBeouf has had his own share of interesting behavior as late.  As evidenced by the picture below…
