Zac Efron: Details Cover Boy!
On contracting poison oak: Zac arrived for the interview sporting a “homeless-urban-ninja look” with a black hoodie pulled over his head and only one arm through the sleeve. He refused to shake hands with the reporter making him wonder if Zac had taken a Howard Hughes-like turn. Thankfully, that’s not the case. Zac was suffering from “a bad case of poison oak.” Later on in the interview we learn that he contracted the horrible rash on a hiking trip with friends through a California park. “Dude, it’s like everywhere. Everywhere. I can’t even begin to show you, ‘cause you’ll get so grossed out. I look like a zombie from Dawn of the Dead.”
On Shia LaBeouf’s attitude: “I’m so jealous of that,” Zac says of Shia, whom he doesn’t know personally. “Yeah, that’s awesome to not give a sh–. And Shia still pulls it off. That’s so cool. It’s just awesome. It just comes easy to some people.”
On Tom Cruise recently flagging Zac down in the lobby of agency CAA: “You ride motorcycles?” When Zac said he didn’t, Tom asked “You wanna learn how?” and proceeded to invite him out to his house, taught him how a motorcycle engine works, and showed him the hangar which houses his collection including the Triumphs he rode in the Mission:Impossible movies. When asked why he thought Tom did that, Zac said: “I don’t even want to know. It’s just so cool that he gave a sh–, the fact that he cared at all. No one else did that.”
