Zac Efron Confirms Strip Club Visit

Zac Efron Confirms Strip Club Visit

Zac Efron cracks up as he confirms to Jimmy Kimmel that he and Corbin Bleu visited a strip club in New York City this past weekend!

The 22-year-old actor laughed, “I had this image of what it’d be like. I’ve heard a lot about these places, mostly from rap music – they’re ‘sposed to be pretty reputable! So I envisioned myself in a nice couch with stunna shades with T-Pain and Usher making it rain money! And it just wasn’t like that.”

Zac added that he checked with girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens before visiting the club. “She was fine with it!” Zac laughed.

The NY Post first reported that Corbin and Zac dropped by Flashdancers Gentlemen’s Club on Sunday evening. The two dropped by after a performance of In The Heights (Corbin currently stars in the show!).

    lol funny interview

  • Melanie, 23

    I don’t know what anyone sees in this greasy-haired tw@t, he tries way tooooo hard. He looks like the kid who would pick his nose in class and hide it under the desk. Smh.

  • gross

    @Melanie, 23: LOL, true.

  • Daniela

    Why are all the girls screeming at everything he says it’s f***** annoying.

  • meh

    he is ugly to me. i dont like his eyebrows, thin lips, hair or fake tan. his torso is nice that is all. hes sleazy in a bad way, watch when he grows into tom cruise II, just wait lol

  • Nate

    Zefron really wants to make people think he’s straight huh…….mate, it’s not working. Just accept yourself.

  • Leila

    I think he’s a good actor and quite charming. He just seemed hyper in this interview.

  • Zanessafanforever

    Zac got Vanessa’s permission to and didnt even do anything while he was there. Congrats to Zac & Vanessa for trusting each other

    zanessa forever :]

  • vanessa

    he was kinda on edge like he’d had 3 mugs of coffee or something lol

  • Diamond

    As the days go by I am really starting not to like him. About the whole strip club thing he said Vanessa (which I like) said it was fine he said it like oh she said it was fine i think he is lying I mean because come on no one is going to reply that fast like serious dude! Something about him just makes me shake my head and wonder?? I just dont know what it is!

  • Val

    Good for you Zac! It’s nice to you know are like every other normal guy in their 20′s!

  • mailey

    he checks with her first? why? boo, he is whipped. he needs to grow a pair.

    if he wanted a pimp experience then he shouldve brought t-pain & usher with him.

  • jess

    why is he dressed like a 50s crooner all the time. like he’s in the Hairspray movie.

  • A Fan

    You have to remember that he is 22 years old and he have been in a committed relationship since he is 17. He was just there with a friend having a good time. It is not like he is cheating on V so we should cut him some slack.

  • peggy


    He was trying to be honest and respectful to his wpman of the last 5 years. I guess those concepts are new to you.

    But that being said there is something a bit sleazy about it and I thought he was bit too arrogant about it or maybe it was nerves.

    Idon’t think I like him a bit less because of the club guys to that stuff but because of how he acted about on Kimmel.

    Vanessa is a beautiuful woman who loves him and there are a lot of guys hoping he messes up. Maybe he should think before he leaps next time.

  • kelly

    @peggy: ok, grandma. it’s just a strip club.

  • delia

    @peggy: he is his own man who shouldnt be asking permission to do anything, imo. they’re not even married!

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    ..this kid is such a geek. he tries so hard to seem cool. ahahahahaha.. look at him, listen to him.. he’s a straight nerd who was blessed with good looks (if you’re into his looks). dude is a complete boreeeee. no personality, swag, star power. he such a good little boy ( disney product). smiles and says what he’s told. good luck to him but he doesn’t have a single bit of that it quality that a clooney, pitt, smith, or any other real a-lister has. i must say, even edward cullen has a brighter future than him.

  • peggy


    I’m 37 and not even near being a grandma. but I have lived a full life and am entitled to an opinion.

    And I doubt you’d love your boyfriend going there or your one of the girls who hangs out there.

    I have no problem with him going I didn ‘t like the Kimmel cavalier

  • peggy


    He didnt say he asked permission he said he called to let her know. Try listening. And your relationships will go straight to hell if you think you dont owe your partner some respect

  • sacha

    @I n F a m o u s l y C o o l: You’re right. He’s very….white..and nerdy. No swag, maybe that’s why I’ve never gotten his appeal.

  • lala

    holy crap Efron new movie is 9% at rotten tomatoes, the critics are panning his performance, ouch

  • hmm

    I like him onscreen…notsomuch offscreen.

  • florence

    Apparently he’s been going to strip clubs since he was 18 and while filming HS he was a regular. So all the bull he gives about living such a clean perfect lifestyle is just bull. Apparently the people who did HS used to take him and I’m sorry but if I were his parents I’d be livid with them for taking my son to a strippers club at that age.

    And the only reason they would have been in the back is to hide what they were doing. He treats all his mistakes as a joke and shows no repect for Vanessa, of course he was going to phone her before hand, because he knew that it would get reported that he went to one, so he got in first. He treats it all as a joke. If I were Vanessa I’d be so annoyed at him.

    Everytime he goes out of LA. on promo tours there is always reports of him messing around or going to clubs, it would seem that those stories are’nt so far off the mark after all.

    And I’m sorry but even the great mr efron can’t have brilliant box office hits all the time, it happens to every actor. He is trying to hard to grow up to quick to be taken serioulsy as a major leading man, he’s got years and years of work before he acheives that. Maybe he should go for a full on sex scene in every movie that he does from now on, as apprently he wants to move into the adult-adult movies. Or he could get that model to lay stark naked on top of him again, how on earth that was supposed to be sexy I don’t and will never know.

  • Abby

    It may not have been the best choice for him to going there but I give him credit for openly comfirming it on TV as well as asking his GF before-hand. I wonder how his father feels about this. It seems his father is very much ontop of him and telling him whats ok and whats not.

    This will blow over just like his Interview mag photo’s of him with the naked girl did. People will get over it and move on.

  • Abby

    @florence: He was 18 while fliming HS therefore he was an adult. Its not his parents problem anymore what he does.

  • PLZ


    lol bi*tch please. You’ve been going on and on in like every single Zac/Vanessa related post on both sites with your same old tired bs. To be expected from trolls like you.

    Guess what you psycho insecure brat, you are not Vanessa, you are not her friend and you do not know either of them one bit. Therefore stop pretending like you have any insight on how SHE feels.

    The “but like omg she has to care, she must be sooo hurt blah blah” is just your pathetic ass projecting your insecurities on to her.

  • PLZ


    “If I were Vanessa I’d be so annoyed at him.”

    You are not Vanessa. She clearly doesn’t seem to share any of your opinions seeing as how she does nothing but praise him, support him and has stayed with him for 5 years.

    Once again the insecure fangirl comes out. Honey you ain’t in this relationship stop taking it so personal. Oh and don’t bother with your ridiculous parenting concerns. Especially hilarious given Vanessa herself brought how wonderfully he was raised just last week. Funny how you seem to pick and choose the incident and quotes that are convenient for you in order to attack Zac.

    If you’re an adult, really truly pathetic.

  • Woman

    So what he went to a strip club!??! that;s normal guy attitude. I’m happy he confirmed it on TV now hopefully people can just drop this. All of u who think ur bf/hubbies don’t go to strip clubs, they’re most likely not telling u. There’s a reason these places have always made money and will always do

  • kate

    Ok i wasn’t sure how to feel about the strip club at first but since the JK interview i have felt a little better.

    Zac & Vanessa have a very close relationship and love and trust each other completely.

    I think if she was upset then she wouldn’t be smiling in the recent pics from yesterday.

    What people here seem to forget is that they both went to a strip club together while in vancouver.

    i think this issue is over now.

  • Abby

    @kate: THANK YOU. Thats exactly what I’m talking about. She was seen yesterday all smiles. I think if she was as upset about this as some fans here are she wouldn’t have been so happy looking.

    Like you said also they went to strip clubs together in Vancouver. Its pretty clear she trust him. PEOPLE NEED TO GET OVER IT. And they will, just like they got over the photoshoot witht he naked model. Give it a few days/weeks and people will get over it and go back to freaking out when he doesn’t have a shirt on.

  • kate


    totally agree with you

  • athena

    Many of you need to stop judging him for a night out on the town. Just because he went to a strip club doesn’t mean he goes to them on a regular basis. He works hard. Has his own production company. Is devoted to his girlfriend of five years, and is of legal age to drink and get into adult entertainment organizations. Give him a break, he deserves it.

  • duuumm

    not everything revolves around vanessa, get it in your heads people. he’s a normal 22 year old guy. just be glad he had the decency to even tell vanessa and ask beforehand.

  • Abby

    This is a VERY tough and personal subject. There are going to be things in our lives we do or say that not everyone is going to agree with. I know on one hand I personally know people who wouldn’t think this is wrong at all, on the other hand I also know people who just think its the worst thing he could do seeing as he has a girlfriend. It may not have been his brightest moment or best choice but the fact of the matter is he owned up to his actions. I just really hope people don’t start to see him as nothing more then “that former Disney kid who went to a strip club” because he’s more then that.

    These are personal choices. Just like some people think sex before marriage is wrong, others (I think most) feel it is fine. I will say I admire Zac VERY much for speaking openly on TV about this and confirming it. It takes a lot of maturity to own up to something like this on TV.

    Something else I admire him for his the fact that he ASKED Vanessa before he went. I think that very much shows how grown up they are and how mature their relationship is. They trust eachother it seems a lot and those are the building blocks to a GREAT relationship.

    I can’t help but feel a little sad when reading some of the comments on JJ & JJJ. I’m guessing most of the comments on JJJ are from young girls who don’t know anything about being in a relationship, but whether he has a girlfriend or not, he’s just a normal 22 year old guy. Take away the Hollywood lights, photoshoots, money, cars, ect. and you have just a normal 22 year old guy doing something a LOT of 22 year old guys do.

    I have a brother the same age as Zac and he’s been to strip clubs. Does that make him a bad person? Heck no. He was just going out to have some fun with his friends. His girlfriend was alright with it and that was that. Over and done with.

    Also, people are acting like this is his first time at a stip club………well it isn’t. Back when he was filming Hairspray in Toronto he was 18 years old, dating VAnessa and he went out to strip clubs with the rest of the cast. If at 17 Vanessa could handle it she for sure can handle it now at 21 years old. Also while in Vancouver BOTH of them with to strip clubs TOGETHER. As did the Twilight cast.

    Their both grown adults and therefore can do what they want. Some people think its ok and others don’t. Fact of the matter is it isn’t our lives therefore we shouldn’t get upset about it. Its pretty clear Vanessa was alright with it (she was seen yesterday all happy and smiling with her RENT castmates) so I think people just need to let it be. Zac doesn’t seem like the type of guy who does this a lot (he said so himself). Zac & Vanessa have been through a lot so I don’t think a strip club visit is going to bring them down. Agree or disagree it isn’t our lives.

    People will get over this just like they got over VAnessa’s photo’s as well as Zac’s Interview mag photoshoot with the naked model. Give it a few days or weeks and tween will go back to freaking out when he doesn’t have a shirt on. Same old same old.

  • hannah

    haha, i don’t get why people think he’s gay. anyway, the whole strip club thing is gross. i honestly don’t even get what purpose they serve….well besides objectifying women.

  • cookie

    Laughing at you, not with you Zac. This strip club nonsense is bad form for PR and I agree with hannah, just gross.

  • Malia
  • sheila

    biggest giveaway moment for me? if vanessa was really “fine” with it, why did he feel like an a**hole? anyhow, moving on. this news will line people’s bird cages, like everything else. there are much more important things going on in the world.

  • Ish

    This guy tries so hard to appear straight!


    Oh, for EFF’s sake – I don’t know who is worse, the ZV shippers who would still “believe in” the relationship if both of them were found butt naked on top of other people, or the “Zac was supposed to be the second coming of Jesus – Jesus never went to a strip club!”

    An Educated, Sophisticated Older Woman Reality Check: the dude is in his early 20′s. Time for him to sow his wild oats NOW. Get it out of his system. Rebel while he’s young and time is on his side.

    Personally, I feel so sorry for him. He, more than she, more than perhaps any other rising star, is told where to go, when to eat, when to go to the bathroom, who to talk to, what to say, what to wear, how to style his hair, who he should date, what he should do, where he should work out, etc. With so much control over his life, it’s a wonder if he’s able to have a unique thought in his head, or lift his hand w/o asking permission.

    We grow when we make choices – when we make bad choices, suffer consequences and learn. When our choices are removed from us, we don’t learn how to make them. So when opportunity presents itself (with drugs, alcohol, etc) we usually make the wrong ones – that becomes our basis for independence and freedom. From there we either mature into responsible adults, or end up in the grave, like River Phoenix and Heath Ledger. Zac is establishing his freedom – I hope he ends up mature, despite all the control freaks around him.

  • LULZ

    This kid annoys me to no end. Major butterface alert. I wish they would just strip him down, put tape over his mouth and wrap a bag around his head. We would be making some progress then.

  • Abby
  • cookie

    I wouldn’t waste my time feeling sorry for him! Vanessa seems like a very laid back and cool girl, but I can’t help feel he has disrespected her. I am sure I am not alone in this. He is acting like a total douche of late, maybe all the attention is going to his head. He should realise a lot of women have problems with strip clubs and it’s not a good look bragging about going to one. I think he has just alienated a large percentage of his audience and considering the movie isn’t reviewing so well, very bad move.

  • sheila

    i would never feel sorry for any actor. it is a personal choice to have that life. you have to take the crap that goes along with the ability to do what you love and get paid pretty darn well for it too. that doesn’t mean i get off on reading all the gossip or that i feel they “have it coming” to them because they are actors. but, i would never go so far as to feel sorry for any of them. i would never want that life for my child, but if they chose for themselves as an adult then they have to live with the baggage that goes along with it just like any job that has its downsides.

  • hihi

    @cookie: ITA going to a strip club is nothing to be proud about which he seems to be… it’s rather sad. He need’s to GROW UP . Who I feel bad for is Vanessa, she is beyond gorgeous and is stuck with him ? All he is , is a boy making a failed attempt with trying to be a man .

  • karla

    He checked with Vanessa? Give me a break. If she said no anyone think he wouldn’t have gone! Right

  • lily

    He did not ask vanessa. He said he called her to TELL her he was going, whether she said yes or no.

  • lily

    He did not ask vanessa. He said he called her to TELL her he was going, whether she said yes or no.

  • leah

    he’s amazing!!!!!!!
    you guys need to shut the f*ck up and grow up!
