Zac Keeps it Caz

Zac Keeps it Caz

Zac Efron and BFF co-star Nikki Blonsky keep their arms wrapped around each other during a photocall for Hairspray on Wednesday at Hotel Santo Mauro in Madrid, Spain.

Zefron kept it casual in a henley, shorts and flip-flops while Nikki stayed classic in a black top and pants.

You can watch this video interview of Zac and Nikki chatting up Sydney’s The Daily Telegraph.

UPDATE: Yes, it’s true. Vanessa Hudgens has canceled her appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Hopefully she’ll be back another day!

30+ pictures inside of Zac and Nikki looking cozy on the red carpet…

  • Zacattack

    Maybe Zac isn’t fickle, maybe he’s just touchy feely with all girls? But I feel that a guy who’s in a reationship should know his limits.

  • bettybaby

    oh yea, zac’s rocking the ring!!!!! he looks so cute. were they together for the interview. it seems as if they did it seperately.

    jj–are zac, vanessa and the hsm cast heading back to australia for the premier. i am also wondering if vanessa will stay because zac is doing the aussie kids choice awards.

  • Erika

  • Zacattack

  • bettybaby

    wow, i’m just seeing the pics–in a word–gorgeous!!!!! to all the haters about how ugly he is, or he wears makeup—–please. the man is just beautiful.

    thanks for the pics

  • guest

    Oh gezz Niki looks like she’s pregnant! Someone needs to tell her to loose weight for the sake of good pictures! Zac looks like he looking outer space, not even paying attention. Poor thing I hope he’s thinking about Vanessa!

  • Tara

    Zac is putting on a fake smile you can tell. He doesn’t look very happy. Yes this Nikki girl needs to loose weight so bad!!! She’s wearing black and she still looks obese.

  • Nellie

    A few questions? Has Zac ever worn the ring with the words showing u before???? and Doesn’t he look LOST???? Hie eyes look sad… I dunno… some crazed Zac fan lemme know. Thankies!

  • mindy

    who wouldn’t want to squeeze with that cutie. he is so appealing and super cute…
    i can’t blame nikki and hey they’re just in the moment…give them a break.

  • lki

    Yeah hes thinking I’m soooo beautiful!!! lmao

  • Lucy

    friken hell he’s turning into a mini david beckham! it’s good to look good but the whole metrosexual thing is beginning to freak me out

  • jade

    me neither…well Zac yeah but Nikki …grrr…she’s always stick with him…Hey Sleeping Beauty (beauty??uahuahuah) he’s dating with VANESSA HUDGENS!!!

  • Payden

    JJ I feel sick to my stomach when I see pictures like this….make it stop! lol

  • pat

    He’s a fake BECKHAM!

  • angel

    Zac is one hot and gorgeous guy!
    I spy the ring! ^_^

    gah. i’m so tired of all the Zac/Nikki promos.

  • mindy

    if he’s thinking i’m so beautiful..nothing wrong with that. he knows it and he is…i just hope that his spirit is just as beautiful as his outside…
    he looks more like a beautiful middle eastern boy, there are boys who look like him a lot in israel and places like that…

  • random

    Zac looks GAY! Trust me he’s not with either girls. But if he were Vanessa is looking sexy these days. Who would be stupid enough to break up with Vanessa Hudgens. She puts the HOT in HOTNESS!

  • juany

    es un cañooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!
    esta re fuerte!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • may

    Nellie #13.I am not a crazed fan but you are right – his eyes says it all – tired, frustrated, upset, helpless, etc. I think Zac needs his family right now ( especially his mom – he talks alot about her).

  • Leslie

    People were obviously trippin’ in the last post about Zac and Nikki. They’re promoting a movie right now. Costars will sometimes hold hands on the red carpet. It’s not like they were holding hands the whole time. It was probably for like a few seconds considering there were only 2 pics with them holding hands.

    With that said, I believe all things are well with Zac and Vanessa. He’s obviously wearing the ring…. and making a big deal in the these and last night’s pics to display it. He usually shoves the ringed hand in his pocket when he knows he’s being photographed because as he mentioned in Rolling Stone, the ring causes “chatroom pandemonium and teen magazine hysteria”. [Case and point the last few days] Think of it as a “shout-out” to Vanessa in these pics. He’s saying, “Baby, I’m thinking about you!!!” V-love all the way. I’m sure they’re on the phone constantly with each other when he isn’t doing press junkets.

    Zac can’t be with her right now. He’s obligated to promote the movie. And I’m sure she canceled with Leno to fly to Spain to be with Zac. She probably wasn’t ready for all the paparazzi ridicule here in the States.

    Okay… these were my 2 cents. I hope I didn’t offend anyone.

  • Stacy

    Zac looks hot in these pics and yay for Zac rocking the ring!!! Nellie to answer your qiestion about wearing the ring and being able to see the words. The word on the ring is “KUUIPO” which means sweetheart in Hawaiian. There are some pictures were you can actually read the rings but not a lot because its not like he makes it a point to turn the writing out.

  • may

    #25. Very well said.

    But can somebody from the Hairspray company give him a break in this promotional tours? The kid is suffering right now. He flashes a fake smile and his eyes are droopy. He needs his family’s support.

  • Ashlin

    Zac looks SO SO SO hot!

    JJ don’t go all Zac/Nikki on us, you know it’s Zanessa all the way! LOL j/k.
    Hope Zanessa gets reunited soon though. I love them.

  • Nellie

    Awwee… The visual I’m getting is him alone in his room staring at the ring and thinking of her. I hope they can survive this. they are too darn cute! and BTW, Nikki looks sweet in these pics. I am so happy for her as well.

    anyway, zac date whoever he wants.

    Wouldn’t it be awesome to see Vanessa on a show like Desperate Housewives or something like that — where she can play more adult and/or provocative roles?

    Regarding the last Zac/Nikki Hairspray Post:

    Seriously, you guys are hilarious. How old are you all… 12??

    You’ve just made the biggest deal out of absolutely NOTHING! Relax! Obviously the majority of you know nothing about male/female relations at an older age. There is nothing wrong with holding a guy/girls hand if you’re not going out with them, NO BIG DEAL! I do it with my guy friends sometimes, it means nothing at all, it’s all in good fun! You all just need to calm down before all you have nervous breakdowns, lol.

    This whole photo scandal has nothing to do with Zac so he shouldn’t have to be brought down by it and he has absolutely nothing to answer for. He has contractual obligations to fulfil for the movie and I’m sure both Zac and Nikki are happy and relieved they can do this together because they are obviously fantastic friends and thoroughly enjoy each other’s company, and there is NOTHING wrong with that – regardless of whether Zac is going out with Vanessa or not. It is not illegal to have close/best friends of the opposite sex, even if you are in a relationship!!!

    Now in regards to Zac supposedly not “supporting” Vanessa because he hasn’t defended her publicly or hasn’t “been there” for her, well before she grows some balls, faces the music and speaks about it publicly HERSELF, he shouldn’t have to say anything at all, it’s not his problem even if he is her “boyfriend”. Her cancelling her appearance on Jay Leno has only escalated the situation by the way.

    And for those Vanessa fans saying she was “young” and “naive” when she took the pics, that’s something a 25-30 year old would say about being in a situation like this, the girl is ONLY 18 years old!!! In a couple of the photos of her posing in her underwear it is obvious these were taken at least, if not more than a couple years ago. She looks very young, completely UNDERAGE, and the thing that bugs me is that if it were another teen star or someone along the same lines – say for instance Hayden Panettiere who is relatively the same status – you would be crucifying them like there was no tomorrow and would be saying that they are no longer a good role model!! The majority of Vanessa fans are hypocrites and truth be told Vanessa herself is a hypocrite because she repeatedly claims she is a fantastic role model for young girls and has very good morals… umm excuse me, what the??? Forgive me if I’m wrong but a girl who claims she possesses these qualities is classy and respectful and does not take nude/candid pictures of herself just to impress a boy or to keep them interested. It is beyond naive and ignorant. She knew exactly what she was doing and by no means is she “innocent” pffft… What a joke. She is provocatively posing, smiling cheekily and it is blatantly obvious that she was not taking the pictures reluctantly.

    And finally if people want to argue that they were taken in “private” that’s all well and good, but when people say they were taken before she was “famous”, that’s a load of BS. She has said herself she has been in the business for years and knew she wanted to stay in the business either musically or acting wise so she would be well aware of the do’s and don’ts in Hollywood and how the industry/media works – the girl is not completely dumb – although after this incident that can be questioned. I’ve said enough! If I’ve offended anybody, I apologise but I’m only telling it like it is.

  • lily

    stace——-> shut up please :(

    everybody makes mistakes , vanessa too !!

  • ……..

    leslie #25…. good point! i agree w/u bout him usually sticking his ring hand in his pocket w/he’s taking pics. He’s totally sporting his ring by showing it more in pics… yay for zac!

  • Lynn

    ouch! that’s a mouthful. I don’t disagree with you… But, I still love Vanessa and want to see her come out of this a better person- hopefully admitting to her hiprocracy, appologizing again, forgiving herself and then moving foward for the better from this. Is it so wrong to want that as her fan? I think not.

  • EFRON SUCKS

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAA
    SO NOW HE DUMPS VANESSA FOR THAT FATTY NIKKY?
    DUHM!
    WELL, LUCK EFRON.
    HUDGENS DESERVES MORE THEN YOU ANYWAY
