Shirtless Zac Efron Covers People Magazine!

Shirtless Zac Efron Covers People Magazine!

Zac Efron shows off his amazing beach bod on the cover of People magazine’s newest issue, featuring the 50 best bodies in Hollywood.

The 22-year-old actor shared, “My fail-safe is to go to the gym for an hour”. Zac, who’s in Hawaii for the Maui Film Festival, was photographed shirtless earlier this week while spending time on the beach with his little bro, Dylan.

Zac will accept the Maui Film Fest’s Shining Star Award TONIGHT in Maui – look out for pics as soon as they arrive!

    Now I see why Vanessa did not go with him on this trip. They new paps would be all over the place. I’m glad they are trying to keep their relationship private. They seem to really cherish that.

    Well I can say that this will definitely help his movie. He’s practically posing in many of his photos. His hotness factor is what’s helping him do so well with his movies at the box office for the moment. Hopefully he will be known more for his talent. Unfortunately, the emphasis on sexuality is the basis of his popularity. He’s like a girl magnet. I guess sex does sell but I hope he can use just as much energy on his acting talents. Only time will tell.

    @peggy, and Hello , i agree with every thing you both said, I’m sure Zac would rather be knowen for his acting, not a sex symbol, acting is so important to him. Know one thought of want you said Hello, you proably have it right, if Vanessa was there the paps would not leave them alone, they are very private people. thats why they went to austrailia this year and spend a week on a island, were know one knew were they are, the paps never got pictures there, they are always looking for places to go were, their is no paps.

    @hello: Totally agree with you. Could this be any more staged or what? Not only that, I love how he is so blase’ about booting his girlfriend’s movie all the way until next year. I’m sorry but I just can’t get on the Zac bandwagon, I used to love him but now everything seems so contrived that I just can’t swallow his golden boy facade. I have to say, my hat off to Vanessa, she is the only one in hollywood that does not exploit him nor his name. She is just livin life and I love that about her. He’s beautiful, I give him that, but something is too good to be true. All right Zac fans, blast me away now, I know.

    bettybaby Says:

    although zac would rather be “appreciated” for the work he does rather than his gorgeous face and body, its not like he–or any of the celebs profiled in this issue–asked to be chosen for this.

    its not like this is part of CstC’s promo plan. chances are he would have made the list anyway, the editors at People just saw an opportunity and used it.

    that being said, can’t deny how absolutely gorgeous he looks! *swoons

    @hello and @nks
    So I’ve come to learn something about the people who post on Zac’s thread on JJ over the years. The first type of people are those completely gaga over him and his looks. The second kind are those who are more into his talent and think he has a bright future ahead. The third type of people are those who utterly hate him for some senseless reason. And the fourth, which you guys both belong, are the ones who cannot stand the success and attention Zac’s receiving because they believe Vanessa should be as successful but she’s not, and might I say, are JEALOUS of Zac’s imminent potential towering over Vanessa’s. Truth be told, I hate comparing these two, but you guys make me do it.
    @hello, How pitiful. Do you really think he’s posing. Maybe he’s just THAT good looking that a pap pic may look like a professional photoshoot. Vanessa didn’t go with him because this was Zac’s graduation gift for his brother. It would just be weird if Vanessa tagged along. And yes, he probably does sell his movies on looks right now, but tell me, which Hollywood A-Lister didn’t do that when they were young stars too? Practically every single one of them did, and because they got all the support, they were able to branch out without leaving their fans behind.
    @nks, Haha, are you 12? Are you seriously going to blame Zac for Beastly’s new release date. Ahhh, how pathetic. Really, it’s not like Zac had anything to do with the release date, he doesn’t work for Universal, he has no say. So just grow the heck up. And I can’t really comment on Vanessa ’cause I don’t really follow her. But sure, if you want to think that she’s “livin the life” go ahead.

    This is People Magazine not American Film so let’s not go the “oh, I wish he was know for his acting” rant. George Clooney, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp all must a People Magazine Sexiness Man cover but of their looks that does not lessen their talent. The only person who should rant is Jennifer Love Hewitt because she was supposed to be on the cover and not Zac.

    Hey, I don’t dislike Zac for his success. I don’t care if he makes it or not frankly. Also, your the one spewing venom about Vanessa. Why are you even comparing the two? How did you figure I was jealous of Zac from my post alone. Someone is either very disillusion or lacks common sense. I think you fall in both categories.

    There is another category – completely stupid and you fall into that one. Vanessa not successful? Beastly, Sucker Punch (with one of the BIGGEST directors in Hollywood) Rent, August Glamour Mag, Showest (an award Zac won the year before.

    It seems we have a poster in you who is jealous of Vanessa because she’s with Zac and as I find with most of you V hatersa card carrying racist which means you were raised by people with no integrity, or character.

    I feel sorry for you, you pathetic loser.

    peggy, peggy, peggy. It’s you again, isn’t it. The self-proclaimed
    “fan of Zac” who spends nearly every minute of her waking hour trying to find some fault in Zac. Give it up, girl. And for your information, I didn’t say one bad thing about Vanessa, so maybe you took it the wrong way. I just said, compared to Zac, she’s not AS successful. I haven’t seen any of her works, but isn’t using “one of the BIGGEST directors in Hollywood” a bit too EXTREME? I’m not sure which director you’re talking about, Zack Snyder or the one from Beastly.
    I’m sorry if I don’t worship her like you do, and sorry if you read my comment with such a negative connotation, ’cause I wasn’t even talking to you.
    How come every time someone has a remotely negative thing to say about Vanessa, fans of her’s always come to the conclusion that we’re jealous of her. I guess they have no better argument. Peggy, you never were a part of Speech&Debate in High School were you? ‘Cause in a debate, you NEVER EVER call your opponent names.

    You must have me mixed up with someone else. I like Zac but unlike some others I don’t think he is god walking the earth. And I was talking about Vanessa in my response to you maybe you should learn to read.

    I also stated earlier he wants to be known as an actor not a body and that’s true.

    yuckfox Says:

    @dung: Hey Dung, you’re the one that can’t take any Zac criticism. I mean, nobody said anything bad about him, they just said they couldn’t worship him, just like you can’t worship Vanessa. There’s people that make comments once in a while that comment and don’t obsess over these people, understand that.

    birdie Says:

    First Zac is an actor, who works very hard (an hour a day or more) to keep fit,along with keeping his teeth,hair,skin etc looking good. He just happens to be very handsome so add that together he’s a perfect
    cover. He’s on vacation so he didn’t pose or ask for this. As far as his
    career I’m inclined to agree with some of you that certain directors have used his shirtless scenes gratutiously, but it does get the women to notice but in the end Zac has the acting chops to hold his own. As far as comparisons to any woman there is none, since in
    Hollywood it is a man’s world and woman cannot be as successful
    in films. There are only a handful of actresses that can carry a movie
    and they will be the first to admit that they won’t make as big a paycheck as the men. So even though I love Vanessa can you even compare her success to Zac? No, because she doesn’t have the women swooning over her and men just think women are hot but
    they don’t pay for a movie just because they have a crush on a actress
    where women will go see a movie to see their current heartthrob.

    gracemarie Says:


    You should check your own posts because it was you who called another poster jealous. So you were never part of a debate team either I’m afraid.

    Oh and in Hollywood success is variable. Both Zac and Vanessa are quite successful and who is more I guess is up to who you are talking to and how they judge success.

    They are both doing fine.

    But this I will share success in this town is changeable and fickle – it’s based on longevity and proof of staying power. That has yet to be proven with either of them. We can only hope.

    BARBARA Says:

    @ Peggy, you are so right i like Zac and Vanessa, i support the both of them. They both support eacn other in very thing they do, and love each oher very deeply, .E asked Zac at the NYLON mag party how is it to have someone support you in the same buisness, he said it’s great, absolutely great! He has said Vanessa is very talent as her on zac, he is very talent. She said at the MTV awards she is going to see CSC, that is the movie she is going to see this summer. They really support each other, and Zac has said he wants to be known as a good actor, I do beleive that Zac took Dylan for his graduation, but i also know Zac is very protective of Vanessa, and knows that it would be afree for all if Vanessa was there, the paps would not leave them alone, plus Vanessa had other commitments to be at.

    Tiptoes Says:

    Of course, I am buying this mag. Great to see him on the cover.

    I realize that some of you have not seen MAOW yet hence the sentiment that he has yet to prove his craft as an actor who got more than the looks and the body.

    With CSC opening on a wider release, more people (specifically adults) will have a chance to see him in a dramatic role. And its PG13 rating… based on the review of others who have seen the pre-screening of CSC.

    Karen Says:

    What you say is so true. Guys will think some woman is hot if they see her on the cover of some men’s magazine or if she gets a role in some guy flick. BUT they will not go buy a ticket to see a movie with that same actress in it if is is considered a “chick flick” even if they do have a crush on her or think she is hot.

    By the same token a woman who has a crush on some actor and likes what they see will buy a ticket to a chick flick or a guy flick just to see that actor if he is popular enough. They will also go buy a magazine or whatever else. That is just the way a woman is. SO, things may be different at times in Hollywood but it still seems as in every other field, a guy gets a bigger paycheck and is the one who opens a movie. BUT the suits in Hollywood are not dumb enough not to want some hot actress beside that guy who is bringing in that big paycheck and the women to the theaters.

    Yes, it is definitely true both Zac and Vanessa are yet to prove they have the ability to have staying power over the long haul. They are both just now getting noticed for the fact they are young adults and not Disney kids—which they never really were in the first place. They were no different than Johnny Depp doing his Pirates movies for Disney. But they are yet a bit of a novelty to some.

    There is a little boy missing. katie was not making fun of Zac, she wasn’t even referring to him at all but the little boy who is missing in Oregon.

  45. 45
    Karen Says:

    These photos are not staged. It is a fluke this happened. As someone said, Jennifer Love-Hewett was suppose to be on this cover but obviously when a pap got this picture the people at People magazine was like many of us and said “WHOA! We can USE this on a cover”. It being a candid shot made it all the better. So as sometimes happens. Zac’s beach bod one upped the person who was going to be on the cover.

    And although this is not a Vanessa thread may I just ask, how many times have people remarked on her candid shots and just how much better some of them are then actual studio shots for magazines? These two are extremely photogenic. The camera LOVES them and just the simplest shot can cause a stir. Some people just don’t like it and think it is unfair so they have to take pot shots.

  46. 46
    hello Says:

    He had to have known the paps were going to be there. I’m glad he was still able to enjoy his trip but at the same time, I’m sure he prepared for this trip by spending some extra time in the gym. Think about it! I’m sure he wouldn’t want a gut printed all over the net and magazines. This is why I brought up Vanessa. I think that she didn’t go because they both new it would be paps heaven. They like their privacy and probably didn’t want their intimate moments posted all over the place. So maybe the pictures weren’t staged. But I will say that he more than likely new they would be there and prepared himself for it. A little flick of the hair here, and a little smile there wouldn’t hurt anything. Why shouldn’t he be prepared for a good shot. I just speaking realistically of the world of Hollywood right now.

  47. 47
    go sox Says:

    Let’s just say I’d be a lot happier if he got critical acclaim for his movies, instead of for his body. Yeah, it’s nice, but it’s not what he should want at this point; to continue to be a tween idol worshipped for his body. I also don’t like the way Steers has gratuitously promoted his Efron movies with shirtless scenes. I really would like him to be known for more. No, he is not a “great” actor. He has a ways to go before we can put him in that category. He still seems very rehearsed to me. Do I think he has good poetential? Absolutely. But none of our “great” actors needed to be selected the “most amazing beach body”. That has nothing to do with his acting talent.

    I guess we know now why those beach pics looked so posed. He knew about this, and People surely sent a photographer to that beach. Without a doubt. Those pics were taken EARLY morning, when no paps or others were at that beach, except the People photographer. Also, he gave a quote to the magazine, which is included in the issue. There is no way that “photoshoot” was not planned.

    And I totally agree it’s much more difficult for women to develop a big fan base to open a movie. It will always be easier for a “pin up” boy or sex symbol than for a woman, no matter how hot she is.

  49. 49
    Karen Says:

    I don’t think it is obvious that this was “staged” and it is unfair to make it sound like that. Jennifer Love-Hewett was suppose to have this cover. She was bumped once these pics came out. People obviously was planning to feature the best bodies in Hollywood and no doubt Zac Efron would have been part of that list. He could have given that little statement at any time any place. He has said similar things in the past about his gym time. But once this pic hit, this was the thing People wanted to use. AND when they do a cover it isn’t done just a couple days BEFORE the cover hits the magazine and I believe most people know that is the fact.

    Young actors starting out have all used their looks and bodies to gain notice and even many actors who are in their 30′s and 40 still do. And yet Zac gets slammed for it. It is no different for young actresses and those older actresses who have made a name for themselves in Hollywood do the very same thing if their bodies have stood the test of time. Look at Jennifer Aniston just about a year ago posing in a necktie? And many people down Zac and have never seen the movie MAOW… He will NEVER do just what some people think he should, that is clear. But it still isn’t justified.

    Malia Says:


    I agree. Face it, Zac is photogenic. And people who are assuming this was a planned photo shoot are being delusional, immature AND, from their comments, angry because Vanessa is not with Zac on this trip.

    Do you realize how many people said the first pictures of Zac and Vanessa in Maui back in the summer of 2007 were a planned photo shoot? People who had never heard of them? He was 19 and she was 18, and they had no idea anyone, let alone the paps, would even know who they were. Or as Zac said, he had no idea anyone would care who they were. AND the one pap who DID recognize them and took those pictures left a note with a CD of the pictures at the hotel where Zac and Vanessa were staying. The note said, “Thanks for the Range Rover.” And Zac said they were so not ready for themselves to be thrown out there like that.

    I’m sure they can’t help but be aware they are going to get photographed wherever they go. That’s a given, but it doesn’t mean they are “posing” for the pictures or hired someone to take them.

    And you people who pretend you are fans of Zac when he’s doing things the way you want, and who criticize him when he isn’t, need to wise up. People sent a photographer? Really? Look at the credits of who took the pictures. I have yet to see any pictures credited to “People.” I have seen ones credited to SplashNewsOnline. . People bought the pictures they used. Use your brains instead of reacting emotionally to everything Zac does and thinking it has a negative effect on his and Vanessa’s relationship.

    If they were as immature and senseless as some of you so-called fans, they would not have stayed together this long.

    go sox Says:

    Whoa, there. NO one is saying ANYTHING about Vanessa here. NOR does this have ANY bearing on their relationship. Why do people try to read things that aren’t there? All I was saying is, that those particular pictures, were taken EARLY morning, with NO ONE on the beach. I highly doubt paps sit out on the beach at that hour and wait. He is also quoted in the article already in print. Why would you think he didn’t know about this? And honestly, what difference does it make if it was staged?????? Really, let’s not be silly. This is NOT a maturity issue, as you think, it’s MY observation. Does it matter? NOT a BIT. And this was NOT a criticism of Zac. I just PERSONALLY believe he knew the photographers (paps OR People) were there, since it was VERY early in the morning with no one on the beach. ANd who cares if he knew? Seriously. Let’s not be senseless or immature.

    As far as Zac doing things the way we want, and if not, then criticizing? That’s just REALLY unfair. Zac had no control over a silly article on “amazing bodies”. He didn’t choose this accolade for himself.

  53. 53
    go sox Says:

    @kami: Why does my opinion that he knew about the photographers make me young or angry? Can you please use YOUR brain? Seriously. And I am FAR more mature than to live my life through ANYONE.

    Zac is a man but while you are name calling all you show is that he’s not a man to you but a perfect diety. You’re the immature ones. That’s pretty sick.

    He’s an actor and a pretty nice guy I’m told why not let him be that and stop trying to fill your lives with Zac worship

  57. 57
    Karen Says:

    Once again, the statement that is in the magazine is no proof of anything since they could have contacted him some time back as it would be a given that he wold be included in such a magazine feature. OR it is very likely as I said before they used one of his quotes from some other time or place as this is something very similar than what has been said by him previously. He’s often said his time is like his “zen” time.

    And as was mentioned when Zac had his picture taken with Vanessa when they were in Hawaii many people swore that was staged also and those two could never have been more shocked or dismayed about what happened. And Zac has said, they never once noticed their pictures were being taken like that. AGAIN, when they were in Turks and Caios(sp) many thought they had to know some of those pictures were being snapped and both Zac and Vanessa were shocked about that too. Zac even said to E!News how “No, you really don’t see these people”. And yet some would say how could they not? The beach looks pretty vacant of places where paps could hide but I certainly believe what has happened to them in the past that it must be true that there are places for these people to hide.

    Karen Says:


    You never fail to say something horrible to people when you go after them when they don’t agree with you. You always bring their mothers or other loved ones into the picture as being the reason someone has said something that offends you. Don’t go there with me. In no way have I ever “worshiped” Zac Efron or Vanessa for that matter—and I do plenty of defending of her too, probably more than Zac. But THAT is what I am doing. I have never ONCE gone on how “hot” Zac is or how he(like so many do with Vanessa too) say “he/she is my idol” or “he is like a god” and you will never find anywhere that I did. SO, you better go back and READ some of your comment to MOST people and see how you may fair with God when you meet him. You are absolutely nothing but ugly and crude to people when you want to make them look like they are not as smart as you. But all you are is a smart alack. I was commenting on facts. To me, you only don’t like me BECAUSE of who I am and what I am. So be it.

    And I grow weary that you are yet another moniker of one who has had a few so as to say what you want to people without them knowing what and who you actually are.

    Why does it matter if it was stages or not. Why does an observation turn into a name calling fest.

    This guy is an actor – actors do all sorts of things but it is not important. I am however getting a bit concerned over these Zac Efron fans who seem to think that if a person doesn’t agree with them something is wrong with that person.

    Go Sox made an observation – she is entitled to do that. If you want to disagree that’s fine but to attack her character says more about your character and grasp of reality than maybe you want us to know

    go sox Says:

    I didn’t EVER believe earlier pics of them in Hawaii or T&C were staged in any way. They were on private vacations. I just disagree that he didn’t know about this cover or the photographers. That doesn’t make me think any less of him. He is there for a personal vacay with his brother, but is there on business too.

    THis is REALLY a stupid argument, I did NOT make it an issue. Plenty of people had the same opinion if you read the first few pages. So what? Whether he knew about the pics or not, it’s a nice cover.

    Peace out.

    @gracemarie: Thank you. That’s all I was trying to say…..I could not figure out why he would have been on the beach that early in the morning, before any other people were there. To me, now the pics made sense because of this cover. Yeah, it could have happened as a “fluke”, but it also could have been planned. It’s not a crime. Nor is that a slam on Zac’s character.

    One last thing. How is it that when I defend Vanessa you have no problem with that and you don’t come out accusing me of “worshiping” her or making her out to be a perfect deity? And also why is it when you go after people for saying bad things about her and defending her is it not considered “worshiping” her?

    Zac shouldn’t have smiled and had fun with his bro. He shouldn’t have been on the beach. He shouldn’t have surfed. Or maybe he should have put a paper bag over his head while he was surfing. Problem solved. Never mind, he would have been dissed for that too. Poor guy can’t win.

    go sox Says:

    @kami: Your sarcasm is very immature. I don’t believe it’s a coincidence that he is on a beach with just his bro, early morning, with photographers there and no one else, and that, SURPRISE, he is on a cover two days later. I believe People would have to get his permission as well to use his picture. And I repeat? What difference does it make? He’s done countless photoshoots…’s part of the business for him. Why are you making this such a big deal??

  67. 67
    hello Says:

    Just chill people. Zac is a very smart man whose been in the business for years. I’m sure he knows the hot spots for Photographers. This is why He and Vanessa are such pros at vacationing and no one finding out. But if you want to continue being delusional and pretend that Zac is this naive and innocent soul, then be my guest. It does kind of make some of you look like your seeing him through rose colored glasses and refuse to believe that your Zacy would actually go along with taking photos on the beach for extra publicity for his movie. Get over it people and smell the coffee. He’s going to do what he has to do. It’s not the first nor the last time that a planned photoshoot will be done by an actor.

    That quote People used about Zac going to the gym was from 2008. They didn’t just get it from him yesterday. And do all you Zac haters think People took all these pictures on this page? Yep, I think Zac called People and had them follow him all over the place. All these years. He probably has an on-staff photographer at People. Bwahaha.

    Karen Says:

    Did People magazine or any other magazine for that matter get PERMISSION to print pictures on their covers of Zac and Vanessa on vacation in the Caribbean or Hawaii? Apparently anyone at anytime can get pictures of them without their permission. How do we get so many on JJ? Or is it just magazines that have to have permission because we see tons of pics of celebrities in these magazines that I’m sure they didn’t give permission for the mag to use. Plus, if you remember the pics from when they were in the Caribbean we didn’t see other people in many of those pictures either. We don’t know if there were other people around and I don’t think that matters anyway since it wasn’t other people these photogs wanted in their pictures.

    One last thing for the night:

    There was information about this being a private beach when these pictures first hit the net and was posted on one of the fansites.

    Also, now giving it some thought I would sort of thing if People had a photographer there to take these pictures specifically for this issue of People that NOBODY else would have gotten to see them like on the web BEFORE people released them in their magazine. It seems to me given so many sites were publishing this photo BEFORE it hit the front page of People that it definitely IS a pap photo and Zac was unaware of it… Nobody got credited with the photo from People, after all.

  73. 73
    pop86 Says:

    Those were old quotes from when he was on the View. I do believe People Magazine (like most magazines) buy photos from freelance agencies. Also, a staff member at hotel contacted the paps. Zac and his brother are on private beach which mean only guests and hotel staff would have access to. If a celebrity is beach resort and wants to go to the beach, it is suggested by the manager or concierge that they use the beach early in the morning, because even though it is a private beach it is still open to other guests. I know this for I have a friend who works at luxury hotel in NYC and before that he worked a beach resort in the carribean. Going to the beach early morning would allow the celebrity some privacy. Anyone who been to Paradise Island, T&C, Jamaica or even Mexico, can tell you find celebrity at beach during the early morning hours. The only way the pap got those picture is because the pap paid someone at the hotel for early morning access.

    Could it be possible that more than one photog was called to the private beach to take pictures of him only? I’m just throwing it out there for the record. In essence, all we can do is speculate. We really don’t know if the pics were staged or not. So lets just move on. Unless some of you know Zac personally, please stop acting like you were there with him. We’re all entitled to our opinions as long as we don’t insult or call names. Its okay to have mature debates.

    I find it amusing to read the comments of the so-called “Zac fans”.
    Let us face it – some of you (and we know who you are) are jealous that he gets the cover of a very well known mag, and that his movie is coming out in a few weeks. He is creating buzz… in the beach or elsewhere.

    I have seen the scans of the mag….and the interview quotes are not recent. So its safe to assume that he was never meant to be on the cover in the first place. After seeing the beach candids, People thought he would make a better cover. I agree with them…ha..ha..

    First of all, you all take things too seriously. I gave an opinion and was shot down. What in the world? Anyway, I do like Zac. He seems like a good boyfriend to Vanessa and is growing in his career. Just because I say something contrary to everyone else, I seem to be a hater. Some of you need to chillax. I come on these websites for light reads. I should be able to make a comment and be done with it. Instead I find myself defending my beliefs like this is a court of law. Also, if you don’t know me, stop assuming the worst about me. You don’t know if I am a true fan or not. Stop throwing stones at people who don’t fit the mold of obsessive fan. Move on and take a chill pill. Then you will realize that what I’ve said all along is one little statement that is probably not true. I was simply contributing to the conversation with another point of view. As I stated before, its not the end of the world.

    With what you are saying in comment #87 then maybe you take things way too seriously and that you should take a chill pill also. You say you come here for light reading and want to make a comment and move on but it doesn’t look like that is the case You say you felt like you had to defend yourself… Well, that is no different than many of us who you claim to be over the top in some many words.

    People came stating as if fact that it was obvious Zac had these pictures done deliberately. They gave certain reasons that to others were flimsy reasons. It also did make Zac look bad. They made their “case”. SOOO, there were others who also made their “case” as to why this didn’t stand up in this “court” of public opinion. Maybe those people had a better “case” or there were more people with that opinion but we are the ones who need to take a chill pill. We defended our opinions just he same. Now all you guys are making it like it’s “ha, ha, no harm done, it doesn’t matter either way”, etc. Well, to some it DOES matter since when all of you started out being so SURE that Zac or his people set this up. WE fanatic fans—as you would probably like to think of us—were merely pointing out some of the fallacies of your beliefs. The things you and a few others were saying were far more hurtful IF not true than what us crazed fan were saying in rebuttal. It’s that simple but because we were doing that then we are out of touch with reality and need to step away from the computer. Well, so should others who come on here and make such sweeping conclusions without proof that this is a setup. You are allowed to have your opinions but we don’t seem to be allowed to have ours.

And even though you all were stopped with real bullets (FACTS) you are still crawling across the battlefield with your last thread of life, still shooting blank bullets into thin air.

    You FEW started a war without any real ammunition, and even though you lost both the battle and the war, you are still plunging along, still trying to prove that your lack of facts doesn’t mean this or that.

    No matter how many more defensive, comments you make, you’re still shooting blank bullets into thin air. Not only that, you are digging yourselves deeper into the hole of stupidity. What next? Stomping your feet and throwing a temper tantrum?

Now when I try to make peace or truce, some obsessed fans choose to still hold a grudge or be angry because a selected few sees things differently. I’m also not responsible for that behavior. I stated my case, tried to agree to disagree, and then you want to continue with the drama. Well if it makes you feel better to ramble about foolishness then be my guest. You know have the floor.

    Sorry Karen but I only responded on two separate threads. This one and the one about Amanda. I’m not on some vendetta seeking to destroy Zac. lol.

    go sox Says:

    @Daniel Tang: THere was no reason for a war, and your comments are truly silly. I never said anything “bad” about Zac, nor meant to insinuate that. My observation was, days ago when I saw the beach pics with him alone, at a very early hour, with no one around, that it was a bit strange. To ME, once the cover of People came out, it made mores sense to me. They probably were featuring Zac in the issue already, but liked the new picture whoever it was taken by, and made him the cover. He may have known the photographers were there and that he was being featured, or he may not have.
    Really, why do you think this even needs to be termed a “war”? Are you saying by “shooting blanks” that our opinions have no value? Others have just as much right to post their views, without all the angry, immature,”oh grow up”, “suppposed Zac fan” comments that are being thrown at us. It’s pathetic, really.

    Frankly, I think this is the silliest “argument” I have ever seen here. I could see if someone was strongly suggesting that Zac was gay, fooling around, stoned, a loser, or whatever. But merely suggesting he may have known the photographers were there and may have been planned to some degree, is not a character flaw or derogatory in any way. C’mon, there are far more important things to argue about than this. This is a NON-issue.

You sound like a bunch of high school mean girls who operate on emotions and anger. Denial and trying to justify your rashness does not take away what you said.

    Mona Says:

    Whoa! The heat here is intense, and it’s only partly coming from Zac’s photo!

    I posted earlier on JJJ that MAYBE Zac or his manager might have been approached by People for a beach photo shoot, and when they saw the results they decided to put him on the cover. But as some have pointed out, if the pics were taken on behalf of People, they would not have appeared all over the net DAYS before the mag came out. Very good point. I’ve also just seen short interviews (on E!) from some of the other celebs featured in the issue (eg Jennifer Love Hewitt) which clearly showed that their involvement was pre-arranged, but no interview with Zac. So I’m now convinced that the early morning beach photos of Zac were taken by paps without his permission, then sold to People who decided to put him on the cover. Lets face it, someone got very rich taking photos of Zac and Vanessa last time; this time they knew he was coming to Maui for the award. Maybe why Vanessa didn’t come, Zac took his bro’ instead. He probably thought that even if someone took photos, it would be with his brother lol. Except he didn’t figure on how hot the photos would be and that it would land him on the cover of People!!!

    The problem I had with some of the posters here who questioned whether these were really candid shots was that they pretty much assumed that Zac was in the know, and proceeded to criticize him for it. And when others pointed out the contrary opinion, they became defensive, implying that we Zac fans saw him only thru’ rose coloured glasses, he can do no wrong in our eyes but he’s not as naive as we think he is, etc. A very telling comment comes from the person who calls herself (himself?) ‘hello’ on post # 91 and I quote: “Good luck with your self professed beliefs and MISPLACED TRUTHS about Zac.” It’s obvious that ‘hello’ thinks our beliefs about Zac’s innocence in this affair is “misplaced”, ie, she/he knows the truth and we are wrong! Yet she/he pretends that it’s only an opinion!

    @ hello: I’ve seen your post on the thread re Amanda Crew, where you attacked her for making a comment that she felt nervous the first couple of times she had to kiss Zac. Then further down you started to attack Zac himself for always paying compliments to his costars, therefore (in your eyes!) disrespecting Vanessa, and also accused him of flirting shamelessly with each of his costars other than Vanessa. Just looking back to your first comment on this thread (#8) it’s very clear (to anyone who can read between the lines) that you are p*ssed off with Zac for whatever reason and take every opportunity to attack him, sometimes subtly, other times not so subtly. I doubt if you’re a fan, as you state. I’ve read enough of your posts to see the consistency of your dislike for Zac, which you try to cover up.

    @ go sox: You keep stressing the point that Zac and his brother went surfing very EARLY in the morning, with no one else around, so Zac must have known the paps were there or it was staged. Zac grew up in a small Californian beach town. A lot of kids in such places often go surfing BEFORE school and AFTER school. Zac is an avid surfer. He would have jumped at the opportunity to surf before the beach got crowded. Just because you (or I, for that matter) would probably never go on the beach that early, doesn’t mean that Zac normally wouldn’t either, therefore he must have had ulterior motives for doing so. This is such crazy logic, and even when presented with an alternative explanation you insist on thinking the worst of Zac (he was in cahoots with People!). Fan indeed!

He’s living his life as a happy man while you guys are defending his honor for no apparent reason. But since your so upset and are absolutely appalled, then apparently there’s nothing that I can say to appease your insecurities. I will stop trying to explain myself because as a few of you stated, its just not registering upstairs. I hope you all will sit down and take a breather.

    I’m glad that someone logical has come aboard. Here is how I feel about this matter.

    I became defensive because fans started name calling and exhibiting erratic behavior. Anytime I make a simple comment and I get daggers thrown at me from the entire thread, then yes I did call the fans fanatical because of that. I didn’t mean to come across as assuming or factual. I thought that my comment from #8 was a simple observation. Also, if you read it correctly, I never stated that he new the photographers were there. That came up later. I guess people wanted to assume the worse when I made the comment, “He’s practically posing in many of his pics.” I think the word “practically” justifies that I was simply stating that it was a question of whether he was really doing so or not? Why would that statement rise of such animosity and furry? Again, I never said the he new the photogs were there. Furthermore, no one is angry at Zac. That is so ludicrous sounding. I’m a grown ass woman. I don’t spend my days frowning at Zac’s successes. As I stated before, this entire debate is worthless to him because he’s going to continue to live his life and be okay. But for the sake of trying to set the record straight to those who are intelligent enough to try to see things from my perspective, I will try to explain myself again. In essence, please re-read the #8 comment again. I was far from furious when making that comment.

    As for the thread on Amanda, yes I did make some comments about Zac and his co-stars. I stated that I like Zac BUT I didn’t like his behaviors while promoting movies. I felt he was flirty with some of his co-stars which left a bad taste in my mouth. Then if you read further, I stated that I noticed he changed and will give him the benefit. I think he has grown and matured over the years. Time will tell. Now I noticed that you only speak of the negative to try to make your case which is false about me disliking Zac. There are things I like about him, and things I don’t like about him. I guess this puts me in the category of a fan who is not obsessed with him. Also, I don’t see him through rose colored glasses. Therefore, he is a human being who is also susceptible to mistakes just like the next person. Now shoot me if you will but this is how I feel about him. You can continue with this meaningless debate if you want because as I stated before, Its going no where fast.

    @go sox:


    Let’s just say I’d be a lot happier if he got critical acclaim for his movies, instead of for his body. Yeah, it’s nice, but it’s not what he should want at this point; to continue to be a tween idol worshipped for his body. I also don’t like the way Steers has gratuitously promoted his Efron movies with shirtless scenes. I really would like him to be known for more. No, he is not a “great” actor. He has a ways to go before we can put him in that category. He still seems very rehearsed to me. Do I think he has good poetential? Absolutely. But none of our “great” actors needed to be selected the “most amazing beach body”. That has nothing to do with his acting talent.

    I guess we know now why those beach pics looked so posed. He knew about this, and People surely sent a photographer to that beach. Without a doubt. Those pics were taken EARLY morning, when no paps or others were at that beach, except the People photographer. Also, he gave a quote to the magazine, which is included in the issue. There is no way that “photoshoot” was not planned.

    And I totally agree it’s much more difficult for women to develop a big fan base to open a movie. It will always be easier for a “pin up” boy or sex symbol than for a woman, no matter how hot she is.
    ~end quote

    whoa……you seem to be making a great many assumptions.

    first off, the pics of zac and dylan surfing on the first day….there are several where its evident that zac has spotted the paps and the smiles suddenly vanished. there are i think 3 shots where zac looks annoyed, with one where he is shielding his eyes and pointing. seems evident he’s noticed the paps, the few shots after that he is no longer smiling….

    then there is the creeper shot of them in the pool… c’mon.

    and as for the pics published in the magazine…how do you know there isn’t anyone else on the beach? Can’t you consider that there are some people, but they simply aren’t in the frame? he said in one of his interviews during the festival that they are hitting the beach at 7 or 8 am. most people on vacation DON’T get up that early and flock to the beach. did you never consider that they purposely got up at that time to try and take advantage of that? other considerations…i’ve stayed in Ritz Carlton’s all over the world, and trust me when i say that most people sit at the pool rather than go to the beach. doesn’t matter that they are vacationing at some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, most people seem to prefer the pool. crazy if you ask me, but everyone is different.

    also, when zac and V vacationed in T&C a great number of the pics don’t show anyone else, making the beach appear deserted. was it? who knows? but if i were to follow your logic, any pic that shows no other people in it, must mean there are no other people, which in turn means its a photo op.

    as for paps being there the next day and capturing these shots…why wouldn’t they come and stalk given the fact that they now know where he is staying?

    and lastly, if you followed zac more you would know that those are recycled quotes….everyone of them. do you not see that it says “Zac told People back in 2008,” part of that sentence???? and the quote about emulating Vs workouts for SP….its old, he said that a long time, its not new info. none of it is.

    as i said previously, more times than not, these celebs don’t seek out this stuff. very few are set up as shoots done expressly for the issue.

    i would be willing to bet that every one of the profiles in the mag have been done without the celeb’s knowledge and are done using previously published pics, and recycled quotes.

    I want to make a correction to my last post. I did say that he and Vanessa new photographers would be all over the place. But it wasn’t said in the sense that it was staged for People’s magazine. It was said in the sense that it was just another beach where there would more than likely be photogs there wanting to take some photos of them as a couple or as individuals. Later I was informed that it was a private beach but individuals became more than angry with me because I stated that they could have still been staged. Anyway, I hope I explained myself clearly. I’m not trying to ruin or destroy Zac’s career, although I know I don’t have the power to do that. It seems that some of you think that I do. Of course, the venom will keep coming. Anyway, I just wanted to put that out there.

    I had covered many of the things you did in your comment already but what I got back was how I must know Zac and when I saw him like today to tell her hello—you know a demeaning type reply. However, these same people attacked me saying I called THEM names (?) and they also went into great details about these pictures to start off with as IF they knew something about them—sweeping judgments as I saw them—but yet it was me who had the problem. Then when more information kept coming out some of the same people tried to make it seem like what they had said was of no affect and claim to be hurt and how they never said they didn’t like Zac or wished him ill…you know the old “sugar coating” deal. Anyway it goes on and on but we who defended him are the ones with the problems and should step away from the computer.

    Frankly, I feel that when their jab at Zac was seen for what it was truly meant to be from the beginning they had to try to back track somehow and turn the tables on those who defended him–and that was like what a spin doctor would do.But nevertheless it was to take the heat off them. And that’s how I see it or what some would say, MY OPINION.

    As a fan I support Zac (and Vanessa too) and wish them both every success in their chosen careers, and in their personal life. Their real-life relationship is very heartening to see in a town like Hollywood. They each have their fans, but also their detractors. Of course neither of them, just like every one of us, is perfect. However, as a fan, I prefer to focus on the positives.

    With respect to Zac (since this is about Zac), I have only seen good things about this young man. He is down-to-earth, humble and tries to challenge himself with each new film. Yes of course he is blessed with good looks and a certain charisma, in my opinion, but without those gifts, as well as his acting, singing and dancing, he might never have made it in the movies as he did. He does still have a long way to go, and to a lot of people he still has a lot to prove, but I’m convinced that he will go a long way, and being presented with the Shining Star Award and other accolades means his fans are not the only ones who think he has talent and a successful career ahead of him.

    A handful of people come on Zac’s threads and blatantly insult him. You don’t do that. What I think you do is to question his integrity, his professionalism and his character by your comments. This is the reason why your so-called harmless comment has triggered an emotional response in this particular thread.

    Basically what you’re trying to imply is that Zac will do almost anything to further his career (#8 & #46 & #67) including using his looks/sex appeal/body to promote his movies, and if that means having a beach photo shoot, so be it. It’s such a crime! You say he’s “smart”, not “this naive and innocent soul” (#67), which implies that everything he does is calculated, and could never be the result of fortunate circumstance or luck.

    You say that he’s a flirt, that he flirts with all his female co-stars outrageously while promoting movies. Let’s see – that’s Vanessa, Nikki Blonsky, Claire Danes and Leslie Mann. You hate that he compliments them for their performances, as if it’s an insult to Vanessa. But if he didn’t compliment them, my guess is you would criticize him for being arrogant and thinking it was all about him.

    Sorry hello, but you’re not a fan. I quote from #22: “I don’t care if he makes it or not frankly.” No self respecting person who calls herself/himself a fan could possibly say that.

    Perhaps you should take your own advice that you freely gave out to those who questioned your motives. From #87 I quote: “Also, if you don’t know me, STOP assuming the WORST about me.”

    You don’t know Zac. Stop assuming the worst about him.

    It would be nice if those who think they are so much smarter than everyone else could “get it” that it doesn’t matter how many different names they use, that there are some of us who know immediately and are later able to find out our impressions were justified. These people tell many things about themselves when they are quick to judge and it never helps when they try to laugh it off or cover it up later.

    PEACE Says:


    Okay, fair enough. I see how you can come to that conclusion But for the record, I believe you misread some of my postings. I never said that he would do almost Anything to further his career but I was implying that with the pressures of Hollywood, I believe there are a lot of young stars who could possibly succumb to the pressures and use sexuality (revealing clothes, magazine shoots etc.) to play along with trying to stay relevant with so much competition. With that being said, In my opinion, it wouldn’t be too far fetched to believe he may have known that there would be photographers present. I’m sure there are some in hollywood, along with some studios, who plans such situations just to give their stars more publicity. Now I can’t say for sure if they really were or not but I was merely placing that value on Zac. I did not mean to offend his fans. I guess some of my comments were a bit out there but that is just how I tend to be sometimes. Since I noticed that some individuals were getting offended, I tried to tone it down.

    Now I never said he flirts with his co-stars outrageously. At least, that’s not how I would put it. I stated that he or his co-stars has flirted on several occasions. I was specifically speaking of Nicky Blonsky, Leslie Mann, and Michelle Tranchtenberg. I don’t remember saying it was all of his co-stars and I was simply referring to certain comments that they each made at one point or another. Now many people claimed it was either done all in fun or jest, but I felt differently. I thought the comments were disrespectful to Vanessa but as I stated before, I saw a change in him within the past year. Now I do think that he has grown into a mature and professional young man. I don’t like to talk about what happened with Nicky and how the kiss was totally inappropriate. Or how he complimented on the kiss with Leslie Mann and how Michelle stated that he had a nice body. I can see how these comments and actions were harmless to some. But in my opinion, I thought they were a bit much. So this is where I’m drawing my evidence from. As I stated before, I hope there won’t be this kind of display with Amanda but so far, I’ve seen here speak of kissing him in a couple of interviews. I guess it wasn’t her fault since she was asked, but I can see this being a continuing theme throughout their press and it will no doubt make some fans uncomfortable. Now I’m just speaking from a realistic point of view.

    Now when I stated that it doesn’t matter if he makes it or not, that comment was said because people made it seem like I was jealous of his success and came on this thread to attack him because of that. I wanted to make it clear that I don’t live my life through celebrities. That is not something I would waste my time doing.

    In essence, I like him but there are some things about him I always found questionable. Should I like everything about a celebrity to be a fan? Will my dislikes keep me from seeing his movies? There are many celebrities who are imperfect, but I still support their movies. It doesn’t make me any less of a fan. I just don’t know the guy personally and therefore, I know that anything is possible when it comes to people in general. Sorry that my skepticism comes across as being a hater. I really don’t hate the guy and will be careful about posting my true views on threads with die hard fans. Evidently, my point of views are too strong and are being misread.

    I applaud all of you logical fans: Tiptoes, Karen, Mona, Daniel Tang, betty baby and some others for seeing behind this person who is notorious for her ridicule of Zac on this site and many others. She is the one who melts down when Zac stands beside any female other than Vanessa on the red carpet or when he poses with a female fan. Or when he has to promote his movie with a female coster. She can comment under different names but everyone knows what she’s about.

    @hello or peace:
    Sigh! The last thing I want to do is make personal comments about certain posters, but hello/peace/any other name you call yourself – you’ve forced my hand. You just don’t get it. There’s something missing and I’m not quite sure what. I or many others could write 100 pages and you still wouldn’t get it, or would refuse to.

    You might be playing some kind of sick game, and you’re actually getting off on all this. No wonder some regular posters (eg Karen and Tiptoes) become frustrated with your illogical ramblings.

    If you’re genuine, then I do feel sorry for you, but you need to stop heaping your insecurities about Zac and Vanessa’s relationship onto Zac. He’s not the bad guy. You have a very strange, narrow expectation of what a boyfriend should be. Perhaps you have personal experience of this and it has affected your thinking. Seek counselling.

    If you’re playing a game, you need psychiatric help – pronto!

    Sorry, but you made me do it!

    @Tiptoes, @kami, @Karen, @Tami: Thank you all for your supportive comments.

    Just bought the Zac issue of People. Believe me, the pictures on the cover and in the magazine look WAY better than any scan you’ll ever see of them. And it appears that they already had the a cover with Jennifer Love Hewitt ready to go and at the last minute used the incredibly awesome picture of surfer Zac instead. Just inside, they have the “cover” with JLH on it.

    I don’t know if someone already commented on this, but People credits the cover pictures to Dave/Splash News. Wonder how much money Dave got for those two pictures (cover and the Best Chest one inside)?

    hello Says:


    Yes, I do feel that Zac flirts sometimes in his interviews and no, that’s not a reason to get counseling. But of course this seems to be the irrational thinking of the majority of fans on this board. Nothing is off with my thinking, I can assure you of that. For your information, the only thing that may be off is that I’m probably much older than many of you, and I should have ignored the ignorant comments a long time ago. There’s no winner here.

  117. 117
    Tiptoes Says:

    Malia, I got my issue too and you can see that Jennifer’s interview is very recent and she had more pages/pics than the other celebs featured. So it actually looked like she was supposed to be on the cover mag. Come to think of it, this was not supposed to be part of the CSC promo proper as Zac’s quotes inside the mag are not recent.

    The Maui interviews of Zac are the CSC planned promotions -

    @hello or peace or whatever is your username – you sound MORE jealous and possessive than Vanessa herself towards Zac. It DOESN’T bother her, so why would his promo activities or being charming bother you?

    I take it you are Van’s fan but so are we – we love them both individually and as a couple. We wish them both success and though, they are not perfect, we have great faith that both of them will succeed both professionally and in their private life.

    And lastly for someone who says you don’t care about celebrities and what they, you have posted a lot of comments in this thread. And for your info, we are mature fans too.

    As I stated earlier, I didn’t mean to offend anyone and I understood how you all could feel like I was slighting Zac. I think I said that several times but it was overlooked since certain individuals were so determined to make me look like I didn’t understand. As for my many post, I was simply trying to explain my point of view which is my first and last time doing this on these boards. I mean really, now I’m obsessed with their relationship, need counseling, was cheated on, and have jealousy issues? Please, some of the comments here are so far fetched. This is not about Zac anymore. As I stated earlier, there are no winners here.

    go sox Says:

    I guess I will apologize to anyone who I angered. I never meant to imply anything derogatory about Zac. It was my first impression when I saw the pictures, that it could have been planned as most covers for People are. I also don’t get the low down on Zac Efron every minute of the day, so I also apologize on not being up to date on the information that has come out. I stand corrected. ( I was away for a few days.) It’s obvious now, with more information, that he was not aware. I guess I was the only who would probably never get up at the crack of dawn on a beach vacation and go swimming.

    But I truly did not feel that my observations would anger so many, so my apologies. Whether planned or not, the photos were really good. But I do stand by my hope that this is not the way they promote CSC, and that I truly hope for more for him than a pin-up idol. I think he has far higher aspirations than that, and wants to be known as far more. You could not say that about a lot of actors his age. You can about Zac.

    @go sox:

    If you watched the interviews he did during the MAUI festival when he got his awards, he said meaningful things about the movie like living in the moment, living life to the fullest, etc. He really hope that with this movie, more people will appreciate a drama, supernatural, romance and adventure kind of movie. This is actual CSC promo, not the beach promo which was accidentally snapped by the paps. If you have cared to hold your initial reaction when the beach pics came out, and look at what really transpired, then this silly discussion would not have happened. As fans of Zac, we certainly think he has a lot of talent, and though he may have a long way to go, we are very supportive of his projects.

    And I do have own copy… yippee!

    go sox Says:

    @Tiptoes: Sorry, I did not see the videos at all, as I was away. I saw a few of the earlier ones, but not that one. What I mean by my comment is that I hope that the shirtless method (meaning the pics) is not the way they promote CSC. (Like they seem to do with Taylor Lautner.) Talking about his upcoming movie is GREAT! I know there’s no avoiding his being seen as a very nice physical specimen, cause he certainly is, but it’d be better for him in the long run, for some focus to be on the project and his talent. I’m glad to hear he talked at length about CSC.

    Again, I don’t profess to know what happens with him every blessed day, but some of you know I’ve been around for many years supporting him. I’m not a “newbie” here, calling people names. I tend to be more logical and realistic, and I guess that doesn’t put me in the category of a “fanatic” who sees no wrong. Frankly, people like that scare me, because it puts these threads in danger of them becoming like J-P threads. And those are frightening.

    And I agree, this was very silly. Maybe we should save this kind of venom for important issues… attacks on character, spreading false rumors, etc. We all just speculate on how things happen. I did, and I was wrong. But you know, it could have happened the way I thought as well. And it would NOT have made me think any less of Zac Efron. He does photoshoots ALL the time; to me, it just would have been another, and probably the best one I’ve ever seen. So , whatever…….

    Have to say-While Zac is a goodlooking guy this seems like a major blunder on Peple’s photo retouching. Check out the pictures on the inside of the magazine where Zak’s hand is not so strategically placed. Looks like his secret might not be an hur at the gym but,
    a visit to the plastic surgeon for some smart lipo. Check out the major bruises on his stomach and sides above his bathing suit.
    Sort of sad to see someone so young falling vicitm to the plastic
    surgery obsession. Tell the real story People and Zak!
