Naked Model Tops Zac Efron

Zac Efron instantly sheds his Disney by getting down and dirty in the April 2009 issue of Interview Magazine. Lithuanian model Edita Vilkeviciute even gets naked and lays on top of the 21-year-old actor in one of the shots.

“I think it went pretty cool,” Zac said of the shoot. “There was, like, a giant sandbox in the middle of a studio, and then I just got to roll around in the dirt for a couple of hours. I got pretty dirty by the end of it, so that was fun. It was definitely different from anything I had ever done before.”

The former High School Musical star gets interviewed byMilk director Gus Van Sant in the cover feature. Pick up the latest issue, on stands next Tuesday (March 24).

    Time to read haters:

    On playing a 30-year-old guy in 17 Again:

    “Well, I couldn’t really relate to the character in a lot of ways, so I didn’t have that to work from. I worked a lot with Burr [Steers], the director, and Matthew [Perry], and just tried to think in terms of an older guy. He’s experienced life. He’s been through a lot that I haven’t been through yet. So it was a big change from High School Musical. You know, I’ve fallen in love, and I’ve not known what I want to do with my own future—I still don’t know. But I’ve never had a daughter who I’m looking out for. I’ve never been proud of my son. I’ve never gotten a divorce. It was interesting trying to figure that out. It was definitely a change of pace. And it was great working with Burr, because he’s got this huge imagination, and this sense of people—not what they seem to be, or what they’re defined to be, or what they want to appear to be, but as they actually are.”

    He says, “You know, I’ve fallen in love” – not “I’ve been in love” or “I was in love” or I fell in love” all of which would be past tense. But “I have fallen in love” it’s called the present perfect tense. What’s that? It denotes something that has happened and continues in the present.

    V is not going anywhere

  • Zanessa Fan!!!

    wow!!! Zac looks sooo sexy!!! Man i love him!!!

  • http://www.zac-e.com Stephany

    AMAZING!!!

  • Karma-kameleon

    It’s obvious he wants to shake his HSM image. Not sure this is the way to go, though. The photos won’t get him there, it’s kickass acting that wiil. Zac, don’t get wrapped up to tight in trying to prove the “sexy.” You have a ways to go.

  • Zac

    Damn!
    Why couldn’t they use naked male model ?

  • Tiptoes

    i enjoyed the snippet of his interview. his answers are mature, intelligent. van is always supportive of Zac’s career, and vice versa. they are in the same business together, and understand what it takes to be a major player. i won’t be surprised if Van will also come out with her own sexy photoshoot.

    And love the way the “us’ always slips out of him (about the Brazil vacation)…

  • tina

    I would assume that Zac’s GF knew about this photoshoot. I doubt she is insecure as some would like to think so she knows this was work. It is so funny because anytime Zac does a movie, photoshoot, goes to lunch, or does any kind of promotional event with a female, there is this segment who want it to be something more. Here I was thinking that all actors and actresses do sexy photoshoots at some point in their career.

  • tiff

    omg!!! wen i first saw it i thought it was disturbing but then i realized that zac wouldn’t do something like that without vanessa knowing oh and on the interview thread he said that he has FALLEN IN LOVE okay so let’s see if rat face can say something about that. oh and to the losers who kept saying vanessa watch out you always say that she’s been watching out for like 3 years now since ppl keep saying that and yet they are still together!!!!!!!!!!!!! which obviously means that zac would not run away with som other girl because he has fallen in love with her!!!!!!!! take that rat face and desiree

  • Deb

    Nessa cant say crap after her cell phone pictures getting sent everywhere!

  • Tiptoes

    #52 gracemarie – good post.

    go Zac for giving us a hot photoshoot. and underneath all that nice body is a smart guy who seriously contemplates on his career moves. Zac knows he has everything going for him now, and he wants to capitalize and translate this to long term opportunities like getting serious movie roles and going for mature audience.

  • watch out Vanessa!

    “which obviously means that zac would not run away with som other girl because he has fallen in love with her!”
    Zac will run away with some cute boy.

    OMG, someone who actually KNOWS grammar. And can read!!!! Present perfect tense! Bless you!!!!

    I figured most people under 40 would not catch that. But, then I knew that Zac and Vanessa’s fans are sharp cookies.

    Do you go to a private school?

  • tiff

    #62 um your’re an idiot.maybe u should run away with one and fill that empty void u call a life. don’t wanna be mean but come on your’re and idiot!!!!!!!!!!!

  • ha

    Efron and pattison.

  • Will

    Calm down, tiff.
    Zac is gay and there is nothing wrong with that.

  • camie

    It’s been a while since I came on, but anyway the picture are a rugged and fine piece of art. ok, and to all the haters out there she’s naked so what, it’a a photoshoot. A photoshoot has nothing to do with his personal life, he’s growing up he’s 21, he can do whatever he wants. And it’s really cute that he talks about his relationship without even knowing that he does. The fact that he says i’ve fallen in love show how much respect he gives to Vanessa. Anyway, the photoshoot is amazing.

  • zac is a rat

    I bet Zac was rubbing his hands together when they told him he was going to have a naked female on top of him and getting paid for it too.

  • seth

    He sooo had a hard on in this shoot!!!
    Vanessa is doomed!

  • gracemarie

    Malia:

    Yes I went to private school. LOL Grammar was required LMAO!!!

  • tiff

    will he is not gay anyway just to make things clear i am not an obsessed fan i just think it’s stupid when ppl say he’s gay
    wait…… will and vanessa watch out are u the same person

    p.s. i am calm okay

  • kimo

    why didnit he just pose with his shirt off or something in the mud? That would have been more hotness for everyone. Why did they have to use a naked model on top of him whose totally exposing her boobs? Especially since most of his fans are women.

  • brie2009

    WOW!!!!!!!!!!! Zac looks HOT in these pics!!!

  • kgg

    Will #66….you’ve been on here before and have stated that you are gay. Just because you are does not mean Zac is…..think about it!

    Zac is looking very sexy in these shots….I’d say he is as far away from Disney as the sun is to the next galaxy. I’m sure V is fine with these pics…they are both professionals and know that these types of photoshoots and publicity are normal.

    And whoever brought up the “pics” again, needs to wash your. mind with soap. Not her fault….got it?

  • Tina

    Vanessa is a good beard.

  • go sox

    I going to have to agree that I wish they would promote Zac professionally and not overly with this sex symbol image. The pictures are great of him, but they cross the line of tastefulness for me. Sorry.

  • taylor

    awww he looks amazing .
    but as for that girl ….

    wtf?

    why not vanessa ?
    :P

  • http://justjared.buzznet.com lynn

    were is the thread hat says that zac is in love

  • Malia

    From what I read of the interview, it’s good. Zac comes across as very intelligent and articulate.

    But, I’m curious why they (and who) chose to market him this way. Does his PR think this will obliterate the gay rumors? Make him look more mature? Get rid of the Disney image? I’m not getting their logic behind the photo shoot.

    I do like the pictures–that James Dean quality. But SO many of the young fans (his largest fan base) are VERY confused by this. They think he’s cheating on Vanessa. They truly think Zac snuck out and got it on with this girl and a photographer took pictures of it. They can’t comprehend that this is just a photo shoot.

    It seems that Zac’s people are trying too hard to make Zac transition from a tweenie sex symbol into an older sex symbol. And they’re doing it way too fast and in a too-risqué way for his young fan base.

  • cristina

    I know Zac wants to shed the disney light that is bestowed upon him, but this is taking it a bit far. I don’t like when guys take pics like this, it’s low and vulgar. I love Zac, but what does he think he can achieve from posing in a picture like this. It almost looks a pose for a porn movie, I know other actors have taken pictures like this, but the same thing goes for them too. I know people are going to bash me, but I am entitled to voice my opinion. I am just not feeling this whatseover, and it’s a big difference from the sleeping beauty pic that released last week. And if he want to show everyone that he’s not the disney guy, and a more mature guy, he should show it through his acting in the roles he picks, and as a result he would shed the disney light,

  • rosielee9

    I’m no prude but I have to admit that I don’t see the point of having a naked woman on top of Zac it would have been just as good to have him topless or even just take out the photo of him and the woman as the one’s of Zac on his own are very sexy and he looks grat. I know he’s now 21 and wants to get away from the Disney imagine and make the transiction from teen hearthrob to adult, but it just seems as it’s been said that his PR people are pushing it to fast since he has reached 21 and legally became an adult.

    Some parents of younger fans could find the one photo quite offensive for their children and have a hard time explaining to them why Zac is posing like this as after all it was the young fans that helped him to get where he is today.

    Don’t get me wrong I think Zac is great but I would much rather have his Rolling Stone’s pictures which were just as sexy as these then these one’s which as I say I think is a bit to much to soon.

    But I wish him well and can’t wait to see 17 Again but do hope that anymore photo shoots he does for a while does’nt involve naked women on top of him. I know like his fans he is growing up but for the really young one’s this is’nt a thing for them to be seeing.

  • laura

    Malia, i do agree with the fact that this is affecting the younger fans, because this is too hard for them to comprehend, and also the fact that this is too-risque. The younger fans have a narrow mind, and as time goes by their mind would mature, but as for now, i don’t think this was a wise move.

  • kimo

    maybe they want zac to have a play boy image. I thought he wanted to be taken seriously as an actor. I don’t know if this is going to help him. He may get more sex roles though. He looks hot but that woman is just blinding me! I can’t get past her in the picture!!!!

  • dalia

    I agree with you too Malia. The naked girl is really unnecessary and a l little extreme.
    Zac is gorgeous and sexy in his own right, the use of a pornographic type of pic can be seen as disturbing, not artistic.
    But I’m sure this pic along with the condom story is getting Zac out of the Disney image at a fast pace and that may be what his PR team is going for.
    And I am not a Vanessa/ Zac skeptic, but if this were my bf—job or no job—I would not want to see this. Vanessa is amazing if this doesn’t bother her.

  • http://teamhudgens.org Naomi

    I liked the interview as well. He came across as intelligent and I like that he and Gus covered a lot of topics making it like a discussion between grown men. I’d like to see more os such sensible interviews.

    I don’t think anyone needs to worry about Van. I’m sure she’s aware of the shoot and was supportive. They both knew it would be coming out right about this time and have probably discussed what reactions could be. Everyone but the tween fans can distinguish between work and leisure.

    I still see the pics as artistic and edgy and I’m happy with the feature but I thoroughly understand people that think he’s trying too hard and in the wrong way.

    I’d rather Zac do his breaking out with a role like Van’s Sucker Punch rather than through sexy photoshoots just because I’d rather he be taken as a serious, talented actor than a sex symbol.

    Any underwear model can do a shoot like this, I think he’s way past this though I think the intelligent interview balances it out some.

    To be fair to him, there are so many teen stars out there trying to break through and the sooner he gets into mainstream, the better for him. Ultimately, he’s outgrowing some of his fans and it can’t be helped, that’s growing up. I personally just want him to do it with good roles.

  • gaga

    ITS just a publicity stunt b/c apparently according to hollywood in order to show you’re an adult you have to be sexy and provocative, and its usually at the expense of women. This is just another explotive media campaigne so this twat can get his image revamped. Its not sexy its degrading and unnecessary. There are a thousand other ways one can be sexy this just seems childish I think hollywood is one big child that has no common sense at all, AND yet we the mass consumers eat it all up.
    Pathetic

  • susanne

    Ok, I tend to disagree with some who think this is a wrong move for him now. On the contrary, if he does not strike now while the perverbial iron is hot, he won’t have a career in the adult movie area. Unfortunately it is harder for actors who are portrayed as teen idols to transend into adult roles, there are just to many up and comers parading through hollywood, more than there has ever been. (Note: I am 45 yrs old and have been following hollywood history for many years). Now while I do understand he has younger fans. Let me also interate that it is not Zac’s responsibility to be a parent to these kids. Parents need to monitor what their kids see on the internet as well as what they read. Magazines such at Interview are geared towards adults not preteens or teens, therefore my sumation would be the only way for them to see these photos would be again through the internet. (sidenote: Loved the photos, well taken, just absolutely beautiful)

  • Becky

    Malia I Totally agree with you.

  • kristi

    #84- i agree. The naked chick was really unnecesary. I wouldn’t want my bf doing that

  • http://zanessa NATHALIA

    photo with the girl
    unnecessary
    zac do not need this kind of publicity
    I am disappointed with zac
    I’m sure we will hear,
    vanessa praise your photos

    and certainly more so I Admiral

    vanessa you are a great, great girlfriend

  • Becky

    rosielee9 I Totally agree with you

  • http://www.justjared.com hihi

    Nasty ass ….he probably asked for that chic. I just wish Vanessa was’nt with him ,then I would’nt give a sh it.

  • Jazmin

    Good Interview. Pictres are hot but yes..don’t really get why the naked lady.

    Maybe they are just trying to get the Zanessa image out along with the disney image.

    I Love V & Z togethe and as individual…but if this is what they are trying to do they are going about it the wrong way.

  • a total fan

    I don’t find him attractive at all, not even sexy. He is too pretty. I like rugged men l like them to look like they don’t spend more time in front of the mirrow than I do.

    http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/2/24/Zac_Efron_2007.jpg/399px-Zac_Efron_2007.jpg

  • kimo

    Maybe he’s doing this becaude he’s not getting offered mature roles? I still don’t see how the naked woman comes into play as far as his career is concerned. As I stated before, I would rather see his muscles than to look at a boob. I mean, shouldn’t he be trying to attract female fans? I guess this makes him more of a risk taker. I just hope older fans will accept this drastic transition. Sometimes moves like this could be detrimental to ones career. We’ll see what happens next.

  • caine

    Guys, Zac and Vanessa aren’t going to last anyway. They were only promoted heavily for their movie. There is no heat there, sorry.

  • c

    I am an adult and i do not get why this would appealing to adults. To horny men and women I get it. But to the general adult population, what is so attractive about seeing another random person in the buff, or seeing this over hyped dude with a girl in the buff. Adults with intellect and common decency won’t find this appealing. Adults with teenage hormons, really imature inner child will find this appealing.
    so……..i don’t get this

  • susanne

    Clearly most if you girls on here are really young. There is nothing wrong with these pictures, they clearly do not misrepresent women (again I am 45 years old) much older then most of you, and I find nothing wrong, degrading or otherwise. It’s called art children. Interview is an Art magazine first started by Andy Warhol, of which I know most of you will not know who he is or was, as he has long past away. Andy Warhol was an artistic visionary and quite the genius, a jerk to most people, but genius none the less. As far as you girls thinking that Vanessa would have a problem with this, then you clearly are no fans of her’s cause your inferring that she is less then educated to know this is just work. So does that me anytime he does a movie with another female that there is some king of romance going on. Of course not again it’s work it’s part of the publicity promotion So all these other actors and/or actress that work with people other than their spouce, would that apply also. Of course not it’s part of their job. Does that mean when your mommy and daddy go off to work and speak with another person at their office of the opposite sex that their having romance. NO!!!

  • ashlee

    i seriously doubt this type of shoot will get him any adult roles. unless he’s thinking of going the p-o-r-n route.

  • Jazmin

    Caine…. They have a connection that only people that have fallen in love can see. I guess we know why you can’t see that.
