Zac Efron Covers 'GQ' May 2009

Zac Efron Covers 'GQ' May 2009

A shirtless Zac Efron holds himself up on a parking meter in this sexy new shot for the upcoming May 2009 issue of GQ.

The 21-year-old actor, who hosted Saturday Night Live this past weekend, is described by the mag as having “muscle-ropy arms”, “Japanimation-character bangs” and being “cute as a damn button.” Here’s what Zac opened up about:

On doing community-theater productions as a kid: “It was the worst possible thing you could do in high school. Kids who are in musical theater tend to be self-confident in a quirky kind of way, and when kids who are really self-conscious see somebody doing that kind of thing, they try to bring them down. I used to do random things, man. When I was a kid? I dyed my hair silver, to look like Sisqó in the ‘Thong Song’ video. I just didn’t give a f—. I didn’t care.”

On the entertainment business: “It’s crazy, all the stuff that happens down there. It’s the American dream. I mean, it’s beautiful. But it’s so f—ed up. Up here, everything’s green. And down there, it’s crazy.”

On why he chose to do 17 Again, which opens this Friday (April 17): “It’s very transitional, y’know? I didn’t wanna alienate the fans that had been around for so long. The fans, who’ve been around for so many years.”

On the rumors that he wore false eyelashes: “If somebody can find any photo that
shows me wearing false eyelashes, I will give them a f—ing million dollars. That’s bulls—. (pauses) You know what, dude? A couple of times, when I was young, and I didn’t know what the f— I was doing—it’s just what happens. Somebody’s there, and it’s their job. And
they load you up with makeup. They don’t do the girlie thing, but they, y’know, cover your zits. It didn’t come from a self-conscious place—it was just what everyone did. And since then, people just constantly think I’m wearing makeup. It’s a recurring theme. But f—, man. I have never worn false eyelashes in my entire life. (blinks a couple of times) That’s all me.”

On rumors that he and girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens were getting married in Kauai (he attended his manager’s wedding): “That was such bull—. I’m definitely not getting married. In this business, you’re either getting married or they want you to be pregnant. I’m not getting married until I’m 40. If ever. The thought never crossed my mind.”

  • http://www.justjared.com hihi

    He can curse all he wants but that does’nt make him an ‘adult’ star. Most of the teens I know curse on a daily basis so I don’t know what this f-ck face is trying to prove.

  • robina

    he should stop saying the F word. he sounds so desperate to sound cool.

  • Roxy

  • http://justjared.buzznet.com K.G.

    That haircut is so girly/weird. But he’s a decent actor. Not bad in 17 Again. He could have a career like Matt Damon or Brad Pitt.

  • Malia

    Happy that he got the cover of GQ. And I’m glad he addressed this, but then his fans already knew this:

    On the rumors that he wore false eyelashes: “If somebody can find any photo that
    shows me wearing false eyelashes, I will give them a f—ing million dollars. That’s bulls—. (pauses) You know what, dude? A couple of times, when I was young, and I didn’t know what the f— I was doing—it’s just what happens. Somebody’s there, and it’s their job. And

  • anon

    All that cursing makes himsopund like a douche. Not even Shia Labeouf does that and he’s a better actor.

  • kdd

    wth is wrong with him??

  • kdd

    wth is wrong with him??

  • louise

    HE IS INCREDIBLE

  • MarieMJS

    He has become the king of arm p0rn, geez, looking gorgeous!
    I kinda like him for some reason, he always seems genuinely fun and nice, and I was loling pretty hard at some of the SNL skits…
    Hopefully people will take him out of the Disney craziness and give him more adults roles, that should be interesting :D

    “IM YOUR MOTHER!!!” priceless :D

  • http://Justjared Orla

    i love him nd everyting bu mayb its cuz he isnt attached 2 disney anymore? i mean he just keeps cursing?

  • k

    oh hot damn!

  • Sarah

    What? He looks and sounds ridiculous! I think the mag is making fun of him.

  • lINDZ

    Why am I happy he’s not getting married? how selfish of me. He’s cute though

  • /grefron Gre

    What?

    Don’t you get married until 40?

    XP

    OMG.

    It’s ok, I support you.

  • http://www.justjared.com pathetic

    He said he is def not getting married because he just can’t be with one women look at all the times he has been flirting and hitting on girls while with Vanessa. And he’s like I hope I can kiss Leslie Mann again…and all that sh-t. I’m like wtf? are you shitting me? Who does he think he is…gods gift to women? He’s just a little boy trying to be a man. I hope Vanessa does’nt think so low of herself to stay with him, if she does she does’nt have much dignity.

  • Observation deck

    On rumors that he and girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens were getting married in Kauai (he attended his manager’s wedding : “That was such bull—. I’m definitely not getting married. In this business, you’re either getting married or they want you to be pregnant. I’m not getting married until I’m 40. If ever. The thought never crossed my mind.”
    _____________________________________________

    That’s good news and bad news. Good because he calls the tabloids on their bs. They are so desperate for sales that they have everyone getting married or pregnant. Good on you Zac for calling them out.

    The bad news? Well if he isn’t planning marriage till 40, then the woman that will be his wife will not be Vanessa. There’s no way that she’s waiting until her late thirties to marry much less marry him. She’ll hook up with another major star.

  • beka

    ok i no he was keeping super clean for disney but geez whats with the mouth, i mean he still has young fans

  • Ann

    OMFG!!!!!!! THAT IS SO F** SEXYYY!!

  • dalia

    JJ has to actually finish the rest of the interview….

    The last line is—

    And then, after a few seconds in which he maybe calculates how this is going to sound to the girlfriend he doesn’t talk about having, he says:

    “Maybe not 40. Maybe not until I’m 30.”

  • ana

    i thought he had a clean mouth and he was a gentleman.
    i feel for that charm.
    its refreshing to find a boy who doesn’t cuss.
    but now.. the attraction is going down.
    but his baby blues are a lady killer.
    gotta love em’.
    ;)

  • zup

    Hahaha what a fu*ked up cover, he’s lookin’ way creepy than he already is, also I can’t bear with his gayface anymore, I’m out.

  • Lisa

    I Like Zac
    But In This Interveiw Its Like Not Him, He Sounds Like He’s Mad Or Summat, To Me Its Like Zac’s Change So Much – In All He’s Recent Interveiw Now He’s Like Saying “Am Stick And Tired Of Seeing My Face EveryWhere”
    Right Now Am Not His Biggest Fan !

  • Sarah

    Hmm, he’s cute.
    But, with all that cussing…it just sounds trashy and not classy at all.
    C’mon Zac, you can do better than that.!

  • lmao

    i wonder if hudgens can wait that long?!

  • Celia

    He’s so annoyingly cute…if anyone says he’s not…they’re a LIAR! lmao. But I thought the part about his eyelashes was hilaroius!

  • samm

    i feel kinda weird that he hasn’t thought of marriage at all after being with Vanessa for like four years.

  • anonymous…

    I feel bad for Vanessa i dont like her (vanessa) but i still feel bad for her hopefully they will broke up! Lolz

  • e

    he used the f word alot casue he wants people to know that he’s grown out of disney
    yea i thought he looked in the 50′s time period
    yea i like him now that he’s not in disney
    cause disney makes retarded actors
    miley cyrus, jonas brothers…

  • leina

    He is cute but he’s trying to hard to move on from his HSM persona by cussing up a storm. You can still be handsome and cool without having to say cuss words Zack!

  • tina

    Do any of you seriously think that he would admit to wanting to be married at 21? He is never going to give a straight answer about that. Look at all the comments that one statement has gotten. It was a long interview and that is the part everyone is so focused on.

  • remember the truth

    It’s GQ, people.
    He was most likely told he can “just be yourself, we’re more of an adult publication so say whatever you want, how you want to say it!”
    That’s waht magazines and interviewers push for so they can get the most revealing interview they can.

    You can place blame on Efron all you want, in the real world (the one that exists outsdide your little minds and away from the interent) If GQ wanted to, they’d edit all the curse words out; and I mean as if they were never even said.

  • barbara

    ROBERT PATTINSON WANNA BEE! HAA
    HE (ZAC EFFRON) IS JUST SO JELOUS OF HIM (ROBERT PATTINSON).

  • monkey

    I don’t doubt that he is trying to trans into more adult parts. But stop complaining about being taken as a pretty boy, than do a spread with your shirt off. You have to say F&^* them, and your fans, and move on. Your still catering dude, admit it.
