    The extra weight makes him look older.. as he is supposed to as Logan in TLO.

    Looking forward to his next project.

    omg. i could not tell at all that was zac efron.

  • 22

    A really nice guy. When I was staying at a hotel I heard rabid screaming. Turns out it was this dude bringing in a bunch of tween girls into the hotel to chat and take pics.

  • Zac Efron’s Number #1 Fan

    He looks great always Zac has one awesome and amazing Car. Liking his new Look and The Hair.

  • He’s so small


  • lynne

    i always thought this guy had potential.

  • hoover, hova

    he should ditch vanessa, who is two steps away from playboy.

  • Miranda

    Zac Efron just gets better looking with age :)

  • much better

    he looks much better with this shorter hair…he looked like such a p*ssy with his old hairstyle… sorry, but it didn’t look good on him… not every guy can pull off the long hair, it just doesn’t look right on certain people..

  • Halli

    Meh. I don’t see his career going far. He’s not a big enough star to be the next Leonardo Dicaprio, not talented enough to be a Ryan Gosling type and not manly enough to be a Channing Tatum/Sam Worthington type of next generation action star. He’ll have a similar career track to Ryan Phillipe or something.

  • He’s so small

    He wears baby sized shoes

  • Anon

    18 pounds. you can tell.

  • kami

    he sure is busy lately.

  • Laura

    Holy crap. That’s zac effron?! I’d forgotten he was in his 20′s.

  • samiam

    18 lbs of muscle? more like 18 lbs of fat.

  • obobobobo

    he is soo hot

  • mimi

    he isgetting older, fatter and uglier

  • upyoasshole69

    he is getting older, fatter and uglier too fast

  • Regi

    About time…..he now looks like a man no longer a little boy !!

  • Abby

    Lookin look. This guy is going places.

  • florence

    @hoover, hova: Zac probably loves it after all he was the one who went to a strip club and drooled over half naked women.

    And I find it amazing that since Vanessa has gone the pap’s have had no problem getting photograps of him yet while Vanessa was here they could’nt get any of him or of them togther, so it does make you ask the question are they broken up, and I say yes.

  • Sunny

    Muscel? I think they mean fat.

  • GG

    Without Vanessa beside him for contrast, it becomes really obvious just how wee he is.

  • Haters Suck!

    I really don’t mean to be rude but for the love of God shut up. Even if you make a valid point once in a while no one can take it seriously after all the utter crap you say.I understand that you’re a Vanessa fan, I am too even thou I like zac well enough so I could appreciate your loyalty to a certian extent but there is a fine line between being loyal and blowing smoke out of your a$$ and you’ve been doing the latter part for as long as I can recall seeing your comments on this site.

  • Lovadubdub

    Skinny or fat as long as he’s healthy and knows what’s best for him, I’m all for it!

    Just wish I could grab that chunk of meat!!

    How can Vanessa NOT be able to resist him that night at the club hahaha

  • beatriz

    he looks so hot :)

  • florence

    @Haters Suck!: Thank you for agreeing that I have a valid point.

    These last few days just show how easy it is for the pap’s to get him yet like I say when Vanessa was here and we had all the supposedly sightinggs of them togther no photo’s emerged, even at the mall the photo’s were of her on her OWN with Zac no where in sight. But now he’s no longer hiding and the pap’s seem to know his every move and event that he’s attending.

    Guess he just does’nt want to be photograped or asked about her anymore and is ready to move onto his next bit of arm candy. Wonder who he’ll take to the GG this time.

  • Karen


    I think maybe Haters Suck was saying WHEN you do as IF you ever did that nobody could take it seriously because you constantly only say things that are so totally ridiculous. You seem not to be able to deal with people saying nice things about Zac. You see obsessive in your attempts to demean him. You have no trouble believing anything written that is implying there is the slightest problem with Z&V with no proof or pictures. BUT when we have a ton of tweets and some of the same websites now printing what took place between them at the Eden club and saying they are back on or implying it you have a problem with that. Your posts are desperate sounding which makes anything you write only sound like you have an agenda against Zac. SO wheather or not what you write is legitimate nobody takes it seriously.

    BTW, Zac even said while being intereviewed he was not going to the GG—probably because Vanessa is out of town filming her movie—until his PR person spoke up and said he wAS going and that he was even presenting. Thus, it would seem that Zac was not all that anxious about going to the GG.

    OMG HE’S HOLDING BURT’S BEES LIPBALM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    I love him but that’s so gay :S

  • Lawrence

    Theres one muscle in particular I’d love to test!*heh*.

  • kyle

    I’m sure he is going to lose those extra lbs anytime soon since TLO filming is done.


    Being healthy and treating your body right is way sexy in my book, and Zac is seemingly the paragon of that mentality. I bet you could bounce a quarter off that fine ar$e these days.
    He looks hot and doable as always.

  • *~*+*~*

    he has a small penis. not sexy

  • Haters Suck!

    Yes that is exactly the point I was trying to make. Thanks for explaining it for me.

  • Yamunah
