Zac Efron Suits Up in Basketball Unform

Zac Efron Suits Up in Basketball Unform

Zac Efron sat down with Access Hollywood to chat about his upcoming film Seventeen, about an adult (Matthew Perry) who suddenly becomes a 17-year-old high school student (Zac). Here are some interview snippets:

On how close he was to not doing High School Musical 3: Oh gosh. No, seriously I am not going to be the guy who takes High School Musical away from all the fans. We owe everyone too much. High School Musical is a project I hold very close to my heart and I am going to complete the franchise.

On why he chose to star in Seventeen: It would have been really easy to go and play a kid. I could’ve done that in any movie. But playing a 37-year-old guy who is a kid is a little bit more interesting. It’s great when you have personal experience playing a character. For instance, High School Musical. It was pretty easy. I was playing a high school kid in his first love. Everyone has been there – I had just been there.”

On why he doesn’t talk about his personal life: “I think specifically relationships, it’s sacred ground. That’s something that needs to be between two people. Everyone else can get their noses out.”

I gotta say I admire Zac’s bluntness when it comes to the relationship issue. That’s why I like this kid. And dare I say it: First!

Good for you Zac! You are such a class act and a genuinely great guy!

Playing a basketball player again in a stupid teen movie? One-note, much? BUT HEZZZZ SO HAWTTTT, SO HE GETZZZZ AWAY WITH IT. *roll*

All credit to him….won’t turn his back on the franchise that made him famous….and thinks relationships are sacred ground.Good for you Zac !!!!!
