Zac Efron: Good Morning, Melbourne!

Zac Efron: Good Morning, Melbourne!

Zac Efron speaks to fans and press at the premiere of his new film 17 Again at the Jam Factory in Melbourne, Australia on Monday morning (March 16).

While down under, the 21-year-old miracle worker talked a bit about his cougar fans. He shared, “There are a lot of young fans – they’re beautiful and they’re amazing – but it’s the moms that get absolutely crazy. There was one, I was at this signing and there were stairs you had to walk up and everyone was coming one at a time. There was this mom that was in a wheelchair and her daughter came up and got an autograph. And the mom was like, ‘I want one too,’ so she stands right up from the wheelchair and walks right up on stage. I was like, ‘Of course, you can have whatever you want.’ I signed like ten things for her and she walked back down, sat back in her wheelchair and rolled away.”

    ugh, jared. why didn’t you chose something else to quote him on rather than the same thing you did on jj jr with the zac post from the rove mcmanus show? there were other things he talked about…..

  • sarahi

    love him he’s one beautiful talented guy

  • anon

    I think Zac has logged in more frequent flier miles than brangelina

  • SnOopy

    He’s perfect…thought he absolutely needs a haircut!

  • Bethany

    is he deffo comming to London?

    is he deffo comming to London?

  • Beer Steak blog

    It doesn’t get any more emo than this, does it?

  • Trina

    Actually that “wheelchair” thing was in an interview from about two years ago. And Zac told it on the Rove show. Kind of odd that the story is repeated here again when that wasn’t what he talked about in Melbourne. Why not post the red carpet interview?

    Oh, wait, can’t do that because he talked about Vanessa.

  • tamifan

    that wasn’t what zac talked about in the red carpet interview. duh, that’s from the rove show.

  • tamifan
  • julie

    this guy is not sexy at all! he looks soooo GAY!! :-/

  • susan

    zac your amazing guy,talented

  • zanessa4everrr!

    this guy is down right SEXY! i love his hair

  • sarahi

    whatever julie! Then why comment? and besides if you’re going to bash come up with something orginial to say.

  • Sebastian

    he looks dirty.

  • Soni hannigan

    Can’t wait to see pictures of Zac and Vanessa together. I know this all about Zac, but it would be nice to see some Zac and Vanessa.

  • H

    He always looks so greasy and like he needs to wash his face. Why do girls swoon over him? Gross.

  • Trina

    This has got to be tough on Zac, promoting the movie alone.

    Wonder why Zac is carrying the load of promoting “17 Again.” I realize he is the star of the movie, but it would be a good thing if Matthew Perry , Michelle Trachtenberg and Leslie Mann were going on talk shows and other venues to promote the movie.

  • q

    he is soooooooooooooooooooooooooo fucking GAY fuck

  • sarahi

    I see the same person is posting over and over trying to get us fans to share thier opnion. lol.Guess what? Not going to happen. Maybe you need to go to perez where you’ll fit in.

  • tom

    He looks SOOO much better with this shaggy hairdo instead of the slicked back look he did for the Oscars and Hairspray.

  • Becky

    Zac looked Hot and sexy

  • susan

    wow their a lots of gay person in this board at the moment.

  • pita

    oh !!forget the hair he still looked hot and handsome.

  • a total fan

    Why does he always looks like he needs a bath? But he looks better with not so blue contacts.

  • Malia

    From all the many Zac Efron interviews I’ve seen over the years, Zac comes across as a very intelligent young man. And he says he is taking his time in choosing his next roles. That’s very wise.

    I can’t say enough good things about this young man—how grounded and focused he is, how he values his relationship with Vanessa, how he values his family, and how sensible he is.


    This young man is 21 and at the crossroads of his career. He should NOT still be marketed as a teen icon or for his surfer-boy good looks. He should not be showing up at red carpet events or interviews with that surfer-boy hairdo. That look was OK for the HSM movies and promotions, but as he transitions into more adult roles, he needs to look more like an adult.

    Is no one on his team telling him this?

    It seems that Zac’s current PR people are not giving him good advice. Or ANY advice. Are they just riding the wave of his success and collecting their money?

    After seeing “Miracle Run” I know this guy has the acting skills. Someone needs to keep him focused on that fact and not on the “heartthrob” image. But his people seem to be trying to transition him from a sex object for tweenies to a sex object for older women—”moms” as he calls them. Not as an actor.

    Maybe what Zac needs to do is take a step back and think seriously about hiring a PR firm that will focus on his acting. One that is savvy at helping him make that transition from teen idol to serious actor.

    Malia @ 03/16/2009 at 2:33 pm
    Well said.

  • sarahi

    I don’t think he wears contacts a total fan those are his eyes. I’ve met many people who eyes change shades I think zac is one of them. I get what you’re saying malia maybe he does need a new pr team but zac is smart of enough to make good decisions about his career.

  • NativeNYker

    I’d like to wake up to that! That’s the breakfast of champions.

    this guy is down right SEXY! i love his hair

    i luv u zac efron”
    my love 4ever….

  • Uh

    This was Monday evening in Melbourne, not Monday morning.

  • markymark

    At first I thought this was about the debut of a new wax figure at Madame Tussauds

  • Blue eyes

    Many blue eyed people have their eye color change depending on light, what they’re wearing, and what’s in front of him. Color is about the reflection and absorption of light so obviously his eye color would depend on those factors.

  • Becky

    Malia well said i totally agree with you,

  • Becky

    To all the haters Shut Up. if you don’t like Zac Efron don’t Comment.

  • V-fan-forever

    loveeee him!

  • sarahi

    as you would say Becky I totally agree with you.

  • consti

    SO sexy zac
    love his face and love his hairs

  • Becky

    #43 thanks you. I


    i want see the movie

  • birdie

    Malia, I agree about his PR that making him a sex object is not
    the way to go, if he wants a long career. His hair doesn’t bother me,
    he is still very young and maybe he’s growing it out for a future project.
    He is very talented and I’m hoping that he does a dramatic role next.

  • Becky

    Does anybody know what day and Time it is in Melbourne. Because one of my frineds said it was Tuseday in melbourne.

  • Becky

    I was think about Zac is growning his out for the Movie Footlose.

  • Becky

    #37 Thanks for letting us know.
