Photos of Zac Efron on Cover of Nylon and Interview Inside

Zac Efron Puts on Plaid For the Cover of Nylon Guys

Zac Efron was sadly all covered up for the November cover of Nylon Guys. While we like Zac shirtless, he still looks great even sporting his signature beanie. He's promoting Me and Orson Welles, which comes out next month — check out the trailer here. The more serious movie is a departure from the kid-friendly roles that made him famous and won him awards. Recently, Zac's been working on The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud in Vancouver. In the interview, he talks about his work, Disney fame and his natural musical talent. Here are highlights:

  • On Me and Orson Welles: “It’s the first time I’ve ever watched a movie [that I’m in] and in the end I’m like, ‘OK! I didn’t check my watch once!’”
  • On growing up musically inclined: “I was constantly singing. I would hear things on the radio and just be able to spit them out instantly, with perfect memorization and tone. It wasn’t like I took pride in it; there was no effort. My parents were like ‘Shut up. Please stop singing. It’s annoying.’”
  • On Disney fame: “I try not to look at all of it. You can’t enjoy or celebrate it; it’s not a real thing. The face on the lunchbox and shit—you can’t share that with your friends.”
  • On whether celebrity albums are necessary: “If anyone asked themselves that, then we wouldn’t have the crap we are listening to today. If your heart’s not in it, don’t do it. And don’t do it for money. That’s my philosophy.”

this guy is going to last in hollywood and make great movies. I'm not saying he's going to be the new leo dicaprio or anything, but he's going to make great movies and take risks w. roles. I look forward to his future projects!

I am sick of Rob too! Plus- he is no more interesting than ZAC. Both stars of teen movies. Not exactly Robert De Niro is he?

That hair needs to be covered. I am sick of plaid. But if I have to see it, I would rather see it on Rob. That quote should totally apply to all of the teenybopper music coming from Disney.

#7: "the hair, the hat, and the poses..." Please, every major and minor movie star has posed in the exact same way, including Efron and Pattinson. They and the people who put the photoshoot together know what formulaic poses and looks sell and are considered "sexy" and etc. Anyway, I wonder if that last quote also applies to his girlfriend's crappy music.

I doubt every person who wears a plaid shirt is copying Rob Pattinson. Zac is kinda ridiculous.
