Zac Efron: Goodbye New York City!

Zac Efron: Goodbye New York City!

Zac Efron rocks a pair of aviator shades and a beanie as he arrives at JFK airport to catch a departing flight out of New York City on Saturday (March 5).

The 23-year-old actor had been in town filming scenes alongside co-star Michelle Pfeiffer for their upcoming romantic comedy, New Year’s Eve.

Earlier in the week, Zac took a break from the film to do some shopping at the Diesel Black Label and Armani Exchange boutiques in SoHo.

FYI: Zac is wearing Diesel Thavar 8NE jeans.

    Oh Zac, so adorable and relaxed in that sweater coat – you’d look perfect seated on the couch in my living room. Everyone should have a Zac seated on the couch in their living room – it’s only fair.

    Now, let’s see, is the gang all here?
    1. The girl chronically addicted to the run on-and-on-and-on sentence (posing as guy) – CHECK.
    2. The old lady convinced that Zac and Vanessa are still madly in love despite the break-up – CHECK.
    3. Lauren and her vitriolic tongue, which amuses me on occasion – CHECK.
    4. Amelia, “the beautiful Zac!” commentator, who I like because she’s always positive and always right – CHECK.
    5. The allegedly GAY BOYS ( I say this because most of the gays I know think he’s straight. These don’t) – CHECK.
    6. The REAL GAYS – present but silent. They save their responses for, where they luv them some Zac Efron.
    7. Vanessa fans in various sock-puppet disguises, bent on bringing her up on his threads because they fear that Vanessa can’t make it without Zac’s PR (they have no confidence in her acting ability, apparently.) – CHECK.

    @lmao: Those are called pectoral muscles, dear. I realize you’ve never seen them before, either on yourself or your significant other, and thus are shocked by someone as fit as Zac.

    Yes, everyone should have a Zac in their living room. However, since there is only one Zac, don’t you even begin to think that he will be in yours. He is in mine right now. I thought we settled this when you thought that you were gonna give him a tongue bath and super glue your hands to his pecs. Don’t make me send my people after you.

    Now, if you are really nice to me, I may invite you over to share. Pretty sure Zac can handle us both. ;)

    peggy Says:


    CSC also took more than 6 months to make back it”s production costs and it barely did and Warner Bros. still lost money because it didnt make enough to pay back the millions in marketing..

    Beastly has already made back most of its production costs in foreign pre sales so it had paid for itself even before it opened guaranteeing its studio a profit..

  62. 62
    Deb Says:

    Look at the numbers. They don’t lie. Was CSC a success? No. But if beastly only makes $10 mil, then it will fall behind CSC for opening weekend. And, as I said, 17 Again made $23 mil on opening weekend.

  63. 63
    Deb Says:

    Oh, and as lauren suggested, try to learn how to spell correctly.

    It’s flopped, not floped.
    It’s sucker, not suker.

    And punctuation might be helpful.

    florence Says:

    @chris: You got that right, Vanessa is so much better off without him and deserves all the sucess she will get. To much focus has always been put on Zac and his pretty boy image and not his acting which to be honest is’nt that brilliant.

  66. 66
    florence Says:

    @chris: I’m glad to like you said that Vanessa did’nt go to him whuile in NY and beg him to try again, she gave him every part of her and he abused that and their friendship in every way. He was always so disrespectful with his comments about their relactionship and trated it like a joke. Well maybe now he can get someone else to ‘ service him’ now that Vanessa has gone, as you say he says how muchhe admires Leo so maybe he can hook Zac up with some big busted model who will hang off his every word, and he will give her his stupid wink and smirk.

    And so what Vanessa has been out to a game with someone else he has done it often enough, and so was at a party with a co-star again so what, he’s been all over his co-star’s and gushed about them even Leslie who is married and he bragged and smirked about how great it was kissing her and hopes they can do it again one day, which is just wrong just another example of how he’s NOT the marrying kind as if heever got married he’d still mess around. Vanessa is so much better off looking for someone who will stay faithful and truly beleive in marriage and take the responsability serioulsy and treat marriage with the love, compassion and trust that is needed between two people, efron certainly does’nt fit that bill.

  85. 85
    true lies Says:

    @!!: Zac did not get critical acclaim for CSC. Furthermore, according to naysayers, CSC was a flop and some of his reviews about his acting was not good. With Me and Orson Wells, I believe Christian Mckay received most of the praise for his acting…Zac held his own but by know means was he on the same level. lol. Now Vanessa’s Bandslam scored an 80% on rotten tomatoes and she received praises for her acting in that small role…just read her reviews. You don’t have to be a lead to get recognized for your acting but that’s neither here or there. Just look at Mila Kunis. She started out the same way now look at her. Most actors start out by taking on co-starring roles to learn from bigger actors with more experience. Personally, I tthink that Vanessa is trying to build her acting chops and fan base first. Is Zac better than her because he chooses to perform in almost all leading roles? I just wanted to set the record straight. \\

    Everyone need to stop comparing the two. I’m sure they are friends and love each other. If they are at peace with each other then why is everyone else pitting them against each other?

  86. 86
    florence Says:

    @Lyla: If you are referring to the part about Leslie then I did’nt read it the words came out of Zac’s own mouth when he was doing promo work for the film he was doing a interview with the one who played his best friend in the film and that is where he said it. If hye was joking then it’s a bad joke considering that she is married with kids, and that is one of the big problems I have with him is what he calls a sense of humour is by no where near as funny as he thinks.

    Just like his comment about the relactionship ‘serving me right now’ I’m sorry but that just a down right disgusting comment to make when at the time he had a gf how is that supposed to make any girl feel certainly not loved by him or seeing the relacionship as something special or important to him, but just him waiting for the next girl to come along and he’d be off.

    So in all they are better off apart.

  87. 87
    florence Says:

    @true lies: That is very true which is why I think this year will be Vanessa’s year where she will suprise a lot of people becuase so far it has always been Zac this and Zac that. Like you I feel that she is doing the right think by taking on supporting roles with the odd one like Beastly where she is the lead, and at the same time as you say gaining expereince does’nt always mean that you have to be the lead in every film you make, that comes with time.

    And I don’t think that Zac is a better actor then she is all becuase he has been in more films he has been pused into our face’s where as she is taking her time and as the saying goes ‘ good things come to those who wait’ so she is building her adult fan base and so moving nicelyinto adult films without it being all about her in the lead.

    Zac I feel needs to slow down on taking the lead all the time and just go back to gaining experience and working with as many people as possible. otherwise it could all back fire om him and his team big time.

  88. 88
    Lyla Says:

    You can’t take things out of context to make a point. And if you understood about how Hollywood works as far as promoting films, then you would understand why he says what he says in promotion interviews.

  89. 89
    say what? Says:

    Some of these snarks are just bizarre, In general critics thought Zac did a good job in CSC-it’s even included in their consensus on Rotten Tomatoes that he gave it his all, they just didnt like the movie-which frankly was sub-par to the book-Zac did his job and it was noted.

    I cant imagine a situation where tweens wouldnt want to see a Beauty and Beast adapation, It would have to be really, really bad for people not to go-especially since the new Hollywood-buzz IT boy has the lead and that would have to be checked out- reviews for the film and acting are generally quite bad but I doubt if the target group cares much about that

  90. 90
    Amber Says:

    @true lies: Zac DID get critical acclaims for his performance in CSC. Most critics liked/loved him even though they hated the movie. Go check reviews on RT. As for Me and Orson Welles, yes, the consensus was that Christian McKay was the hightlight of the movie, but Zac got a lot of praises as well. He couldn’t help when his role was actually “intended” to be outshined by the great Welles. BTW what’s wrong with Zac taking leading roles? He’s being pushed by Hollywood to be the next leading man, like LaBeouf, Pattinson, Lautner, etc. Producers think they have potential to be big stars like Cruise, Pitt, and so on. Taking leads doesn’t mean they refuse to act in supporting roles. When they get offered quality supporting roles from respected directors, I’m sure they’ll jump right on. Same goes for young actresses pushed for “New leading ladies” like Kristen Stewart, Amanda Seyfried, Emma Stone, and so on.

    maria Says:

    @Amber: He doesn’t have the experience nor the chops yet. He would have done better taking smaller roles in BETTER movies that people would see, and develop an adult and MALE audience. Instead, he’s insisting on starring roles in crappy sappy movies, that only teenage girls and young women will see. That’s NOT good strategy in making the transition. I think his team sucks and has ruined his momentum. There are SOOO many gorgeous young talented actors out there getting GREAT roles and Zac was forced to form his own company just to create roles for himself. His team is really clueless and they’ve butted into his personal life as well. I think he needs to grow some, and be true to himself. He needs new management, and to stop pretending he’s someone he’s not. And if he is this new party-hardy, clubbing, dougie-doing jerk, then I’m no longer a fan.

    say what? Says:


    Maybe he needs to lose fans then. His party hearty RUMORS cant even compare with the pictures lately of Vanessa at every imaginable party and male companion. I dont think there is anything wrong with that since they are no longer together, but not being a fan of someone because you disapprove of RUMORS about his personal life is a fan is better of without. He’s a young guy with great potential who I have no doubt will build a real fanbase due to his work someday. I’ve no doubt that is the fanbase he prefers.

    Its quite clear Vanessa is the one who wanted the split- she has never looked happier-just a happu go lucky party girl of late-her story in pictures-good luck to them both

    I was extremely disapointed with CSC, but that had nothing to do with Zac’s acting. It was nothing like the book, most of the interesting characters weren’t there, ( no Oscar) and some didn’t exist in the book at all. And you didn’t get to see Sam grown up even though they cast the part as it was on IMDB. But as film’s go it was OK and Zac was fab.Wait for Vanessa to have a few more films out before deciding if she’s anygood. Aside from HSM3 she’s only had 2 so far.

    You should check your own spelling before commenting about other people.
    “just because your” – should be “you’re” because it is a contraction of “you are”
    “doesnt” should be “doesn’t”
    “its” should be “it’s” because it is a contraction of “it is”
    “gezz” – I believe you mean geez
    I won’t go into details about the grammar, but will say that sentences begin with capital letters. Also, you should watch the run-on sentences.

    @maria: Don’t pretend that you know what is happening with his private life and his management.
    Careerwise, he’s just doing fine. He may be doing another romantic movies, but at least he’s moving from teen flicks to adult movies. Also, he’s working with some respected/high-profile directors like Scott Hicks and Garry Marshall.
    It’s a damn shame that he got noticed by the silly HSM movies. He has to work much harder than his peers to get great roles because people are so biased against him. Fortunately critics and general public started to see his talent, and he’s got some promising projects lined up. They vary in genre: comedy, action, crime, and thriller. Oh, and a voice work on animation. He’s such a dedicated actor, and I think it will soon pay off.

    @Merlin’ Mum:
    Aside from being extremely disappointed in CSC, I agree with you about the film. The book was SO GOOD, and the parts that they omitted or changed for the movie were some of the best parts of the book. Makes you wonder how much involvement Ben Sherwood had. And if he had any, why would he let that happen. Zac did do a wonderful job. I thought he was great.

    Rango tops the box office while The Adjustment Bureau and Beastly overperform

    Kids movies always do well, so no one should be surprised that RANGO topped the box office this weekend with $37 million. I know it wasn’t your typical animated film and it had a bit of a creepy feel to it, but at the end of the day, it’s a kids movies and kids love their animation. If anything, we should be pleased that THE ADJUSTMENT BUREAU overperformed compared to studio estimates. Bureau is a very intelligent, heart-felt romance film with action and class, so I’m glad it did well. We definitely need more films like it. And then there’s BEASTLY. It almost hit the $10 million mark, which is better than we thought, but still not enough to confirm Alex Pettyfer is a star. And the other new release, TAKE ME HOME TONIGHT, didn’t even manage to crack the top ten.

    @**: Wow, you really are a nutcase. Her reviews are just fine, thank you, and she is going to do just fine, thank you, She doesn’t need Efron, and believe me, NO one is jealous of Efron and his lame movies at the moment. As a matter of fact, I think a good part of his box office from CSC was from Vanessa fans, who went out to support him. Vanessa did just fine with Beastly, on fewer screens, and pretty much did all the promo herself. It is overperforming, and has already made back the money for the studio. I’d say that’s quite nice. She is going slow and steady, and taking her time choosing projects.

    @abc: The” parties” that Vanessa has gone to, that you are referring to, was one Oscar viewing party, that she was invited to, and attended with Ashley, and to Brittany’s birthday party, one of her BFF’s. So, she’s not supposed to go to those? It’s NOTHING compared to the clubbing, groping, dougie-doing, throwing back shots, Zac, who CLAIMED he didn’t LIKE all that and is now seen everywhere doing just that. Vanessa has never been seen doing that, at all. Just dancing with her GF’s at her birthday, or at the Oscar party she was INVITED to. Puh-leeze…it’s no comparison. Don’t even go there. And “oh, Zac’s working hard”? Ha. Give me a break. He has a bit part in a movie with like 30 other actors in a sequel to a very bad movie. And he has nothing to film coming up either. NOTHING is ready to go, no directors, no scripts, no starting dates. Vanessa has been VERY busy finishing up HER movie, and doing ALL this promo on her own, with ANOTHER movie coming out in a few weeks. How is that not work??? It’s one thing to gush over Zac…’s another to trash Vanessa for NO reason, when she has NOT DONE ANYTHING to you. Leave her alone.

    BARBARA Says:

    Say want, Vanessa did not break up with Zac, his magement had a lot to do with the break up, because they think Vanessa is holding him back, you all have your heads buried in the sands, when it comes to money, very thing changes, his magement, has a bad reportation, for being ruthlist, and Gina will stop at nothing to get want she wants , Zac has his head buried in the sand, because him, and Jason are close friends, i learn a long time ago, you do not, be close friends who you work with, it can bite you in the butt, i have my own buisness,so i do know how it works, people end up taking avantage of you, this case it most definily has, they just just want to make money on Zac, thats it. Zac needs to work with better actors, who have alot of experience, who can help him in the long run.he shouldn’t be carring movies by himself, bythe way CSC had alot more screening than Beastly even Rango, and the the movie with Matt Damon had alot more screens that Beastly, and her movie made 10.1 million, with less screening., they said beastly did well, TP movie tanked below the top 10, i guess Zac couldn’t save it, he even didn’t go the screening, when they show it, her pr and her use Zac, and it didn’t work, after all, it sat on the self’s for 4 years. People choice said she is a terriable actress, he said put needles in his eyes,he will never see any of her movies.Zac saw Beastly when he went with V, in Las Vegas, when she won the best actress of the future show west, Zac won it perviously for 17. he said he really like the movie, and Vanessa did very well. know matter want you think they will support each other, they are trying to find out about themselves, so they will make different movies, than want the other person makes. one more thing Zac said last fall he wish he had Vanessa’s career, maybe, he was trying to say her charachers are more interesting, he even offered to play a girl in sucker punch. because being the lead is not easy, that is alot of pressure on your back,I know alot of actors well know rather play character parts,then leads, because you can have more fun, and learn your craft better.

Really, there’s no reason why anyone has to bring her up on Zac’s threads, but HIS fans always do; how he’s better off without her, how her movies are crap, etc. Is that necessary? NO. They got what they wanted. She is no longer a part of his life, and she can finally be rid of the hate she has always gotten because of him. No wonder she looks happy. She’s done nothing wrong, and was always an amazing support and loyal GF to him. I have no idea why people can’t leave her alone. She’s done nothing to you people.

    Allie Says:

    I’m a big Zac fan and I want him to take supporting roles in bigger films. Yes, it may be a smaller role and the film is not all about him, but oftern the supporting roles are the better, more meatier characters. Look at the fighter – Mark Walberg may have been the lead, but his character was quieter one that kept it all together but he’s not getting the awards or even nominated – Christian Bale and Melissa Leo did. Sometimes taking a smaller part is not a bad thing. Let’s be honest here. Zac isn’t going to get nominated or get critics success in a lead role but if he took a supporting part he might. Look at Anna Kendrick, Ellen Page. Andrew Garfields about the same age.

    Unfortunately, Zac’s in a position where his manager has a huge conflict of interest as not only is he his manager but also his business partner in his production company. Why would he get Zac to audition for roles when if they produce something themselves but substandard, he makes money out of it? Zac should be out auditioning, I hope it is that he is being badly advised rather than him thinking he’s too “big a star” to audition.

    All the roles he’s being touted for are leads – I want him in a supporting role where he is not the biggest name in the film.

And what do people want her to do cry and break down in public to prove how much she must have been hurting. No one know’s what she was like behind closed door’s.

    And so what she went to some parties that she was invited to, so did Zac and he mingled and got photograped with other people including women so why can’t she.

    And it’s been two males both of which have been her co-star’s and one Josh went to the party with his mom and hung out a bit withVanessa and Ashley not just Vanesa, and her other co-star was Galeen where she was at a basketball game in full view of everyone and of my god she was smiling and enjoying herself big deal, again Zac has been to many a game without her and been full of smiles.

    She’s been busy with promo work for ‘ Beastly’ and will now have ‘ SP’ to do as well, so if she wants to have a odd night out and let her hair down why not.

    And ‘Beastly’ got third for it’s opening weekend which is good it’s not always about being number 1 in life whatever you do.

    @Amber: You are so, so wrong. BIG name actors, all read for roles, sometimes MORE than once. It’s NOT a given. And yes, Vanessa does audition; she blew Zack Snyder away with her audition for him. She had to fight for that role. And yeah, I’m proud of her for getting it with all the young actresses that coveted a part in that movie.
    We can argue til the cows come home, but I believe that’s a better way to start in the business, especially coming off a successful teen franchise like HSM. That’s a tough road for a teen star. I just believe V’s team is handling it better than Zac’s. They could not get roles for him, so they had to form a production company to create vehicles for him. Even Countryman which has been hanging out there with Shia, was bought by Zac’s Ninja company. So of course he’ll star. For someone inexperienced, and new to the industry, he also demanded script approval, and in a lot of eyes, that was pretty ballsy for a newcomer. And it also may have turned a lot of directors off. We’ll see how it all turns out for him. But believe me, there is not an ounce of “jealousy” (LMAO) of his career. Far from it. He has potential, but he should have tried to be more patient, and looked for things better suited for him. Leo, Johnny, and Brad did not star in their first movies. Nor should Zac.
    You all think I hate Zac; no, I don’t. Am I disappointed in him? Hell yeah. After 4 years of defending him on these boards, he’s just not the same guy. He was different; he stayed away from the seedy Hollywood lifestyle, was grounded and mature. So yeah, I was a fan. But I haven’t liked his choices lately, and that’s fine.

    Amber Says:

    @maria: Yeah, I’m sure she blew away Zack Snyder since he was looking for an actress who can look good in skimpy clothes. I highly doubt the role requires any acting talent.
    Zac is not producing Charlie Countryman. Where did you get that information? Is it from the same “source” who claims Teresa Palmer was cast in it?
    And asking for script approval is very smart of him. Glad he got out of the Footloose remake. He started his own production company to control his own career, not letting Hollywood control it. He could easily have made money playing stud in more teen flicks, but he obviously wants to move on to mature roles. I’d say good for him. I have no idea what evidence you’ve got to decide he’s not the same guy any more. Please don’t tell me you read tweets about it.

    Fauve Says:

    This is very sad and immature of a lot of people I do not think Zac would appreciate any person putting down Vanessa Hudgens. She has earned her success and if any person would have actually listened to Zack Snyder this was more then girls in skimpy clothings they actually trained with Navy Seals, and many of you may have not made it through the training. Go research Navy Seal training they endure a lot. He did not want just fluff pieces he wanted women who were trained to be strong.

    Director Zack Snyder, the eye-popping filmmaker behind “300” and “Watchmen,” has hired none other than Vanessa Hudgens to star in his next action flick, “Sucker Punch.” But without any real action-hero experience, was it just a matter of assuming the singing/dancing “High School Musical” star can do anything that’s physically demanding if she’s already twirled around a dance floor with Troy Bolton?

    “No, I didn’t even look at it that way at first,” Snyder explained, echoing Hudgens’ own excitement for the film about a group of institutionalized young girls using fantasy to escape. “She rehearsed, she did the audition for the scene. I wasn’t sure at first – [the casting people] were like ‘Oh, Vanessa’s coming’ and I was ‘Oh, okay – that sounds cool’ but I didn’t know what to think.”

    “Then I saw the tape and I literally went ‘Wow, she’s good,’” Snyder recalled. “She’s really good. Then I talked to her about what she’d have to do.”

    What Hudgens has to do is join co-stars Emily Browning, Jena Malone, Jamie Chung and Abbie Cornish in intense physical training. And then put her “HSM” past behind her as she kicks some ass, King Leonidas-style.

    “You’re going to see her shooting machine guns, fighting, beating the sh-t out of people,” Snyder, who has Blu-ray releases coming for the action-packed “Watchmen” and “300” in the weeks to come, revealed. “It’s funny – we sat her down for her physical evaluation, and she was really athletic. She’s a dancer, so all the choreography is gonna be fun for her.”

    “It’ll allow her to stretch herself and do whatever she wants, and not be too exposed by the movie – but also, on the other hand, do things that people have never seen her do,” he added, saying that since Hudgens isn’t the film’s main star, she’ll have enough freedom to experiment a bit. “She has a big part, but she’s not the center of the movie.”

    People research your facts before commenting it pays to know what you are talking about. Zack Snyder is very picky, and he also recasts a lot this will not be the last time Vanessa Hudgens will work with him.

    P.S. Jealousy is ugly, and not even an attractive color. Envy green is never in.

I could care less who they date, but they treat each other a lot more respectfully then their fans do of each other. Think Zac would appreciate what you wrote, or anyone else for that matter on her? Think again. He would ignore you. Vanessa does a lot more with her money and fame then you think she is with 8 charities, and she also takes care of her family. That house they got? She paid for it, and her mothers car to. That shows her character. People hate her for the wrong reasons. 1) Because she dated Zac. 2) Because someone leaked her pictures. 3) Because she dated Zac. How would you feel if you were to be judged like she is for such silly things? She has not said a hateful word about any person, and all the people have met both her and him, know that they give a lot to their fans, and they would be ashamed if they saw all this hate going on.

    One can’t compare apples to oranges. Beastly is a teen / tween movie geared towards a different audience than Zac’s latest films, which play on the border of a adult/young adult. Zac’s roles from here on out will be oriented towards transitioning him into an adult actor with an adult audience.
    He’s on the precipice now, and has made decisions that will pay off later rather than today. For him that has meant taking the lead in lesser films – 17 Again proves he can open a movie as the lead (if its a good movie); now he must establish himself as capable of playing dramatic and action roles.
    Also, I think I understand why he made his own production company. If I were him, I’d do the same because I’d be interested in making films that I believe in, that I think have value (which for me means substance and art), rather than pandering my a*se every five minutes to Hollywood to make some vacuous piece of celluloid.

How does saying I think Zac should be going about his career differently mean I am bitter about him and Vanessa breaking up? That is just laughable. One thing has NOTHING to do with the other. It’s merely a critique of what he’s doing. He could be gay for all I care; what they do in their private lives is their business. I was talking about their careers only.

    I hate reading Zac threads to find some bitter, jealous and immature posters here specially those who have nothing nice to say about Zac, and believing in the rumors where there were no pictures as proof at all.

    I suggest that you go to the threads of the stars that you like, and take your poison with you.

    And oh, that includes you Maria – you are no fan of Zac, so stop posting in his threads. You show your ignorance of his upcoming projects and what is going on his career.

    Are you kidding me? You are just slightly above Haters Suck on the DisZac train. You always agree with him and side with him. Don’t even try to tell us that you don’t hate Zac and that you don’t care.

    @Tiptoes: And how is a difference of opinion about his career choices make me “ignorant”? I do follow his career, and have for years, thank you. I don’t like his recent choices, nor his decision to form a production company to star in his own movies, like Charlie Countryman. Yes, that IS under his Ninjas Running Wild company, so of course he’s going to star in the movie now that Shia pulled out. He is too young and too inexperienced to produce AND star in movies. I think you have to EARN all that, and I firmly believe the company was started because he wasn’t being offered roles he wanted. Believe what you want, and I’ll believe what I want.

    And no, I am no longer a fan of Zac’s, naomi. He’s not the same guy I did root for years ago. But I do still follow his career, so I am NOT ignorant, as you say. Nor would I be ignorant enough to tell you what to do.

    Deb Says:

    IMDB lists Bona Fide Productions and Mandate Pictures as the production companies for Charlie Countryman, not Zac’s company, which, by the way is Ninjas Runnin’ Wild, not Running. Oh, but I forgot –you are not ignorant about him.

    So, Nope, I’m not ignorant.

    That doesn’t mean Ninjas is producing it. I can find links too. Read ALL of it, to the bottom.


    And i was referring to the name of his company when I spoke of ignorance.

    @Deb: I’m not going to go there….the fact that I can spell doesn’t make ME ignorant. At least I don’t go on about having Zac at my place, insinuating dirty stuff, with the likes of someone who refers to herself as Wicked Wench. THAT borders on insulting and disgusting.

    i think a lot of ppl are disappointed in zac. that he’s not the guy he always promoted himself to be–no clubbing, hard partying and womanizing. it turns out he’s doing all the stuff he said he never would. and the ppl who are the most disappointed are the one who are trying so hard to defend him on all his treads. ppl in hw get caught up in fame and forget who they are. zac is no exception. accept that for what it is and move on. he is what he wants to be right now.

  151. 151
    Deb Says:

    If he was actually doing those things, then I might possibly be disappointed in him. However, he is not, at least not to the extent that it is out of control. It is okay for him to go out to clubs, go out on dates, and party as long as he’s not getting drunk all the time or having unsafe sex.

    maria Says:

    @Deb: And isn’t that how it starts? Ask Lindsay Lohan. It’s hard to know what is enough, and when it starts affecting the rest of your life. Some of you think this is all well and fine at this age, but in Hollywood, this scene is a whole different beast. Zac knew what he was doing avoiding it all along. Trust me…’s not the same there, as it is in Small Town, USA. It’s easy to lose yourself in that culture. It’s not a simple “let’s go out for a beer” in Hollywood, people.

    here is a comment from charlie sheen back in 1988 when he was 23 yrs old, right after he had done the movie platoon:

    “It’s not about getting bigger, it’s about being better. It’s
    about focusing on the work, staying true to myself, not
    abusing the body, and just trying to put across
    performances that people are entertained by.”

    getting caught up in fame messes with a person’s mind.

    The thread directly below this one for Zac is about a fan describing his kindness to her and how it affected her. I’ve read things like this time and again, and have never heard anyone who has met him describe him negatively.
    I dont get those who are hoping other people fail. Its very creepy. Its one thing to stop being a fan- based on? and another to wish failure

  157. 157
    kami Says:

    @say what?:

    i don’t think anyone is “hoping other people fail” they are hoping zac doesn’t lose his way and get caught up in the hard partying, drinking and fame to end up like other celebrities before him have. i think ppl are more worried about his recent out of character behavior than hoping he will continue it.

    Using an example as extreme as Charlie Sheen when most of your described accounts regarding Zac were things not actually seen lead me to draw that conclusion

  159. 159 Says:

    @maria: I think whomever has control over the film/script is in the wrong…CSC was almost fleeing too far from the characters, and CSC himself wasn’t visually deshevelled like the character described in the book…in which, I thought they’d give Zac longer hair and a scruffy appearance….his look was too clean if you asked me…and there is nothing wrong with that….I think the film was played to safe and didn’t know how to market the film itself….shame…and MAOW was amazing…Zac is a great actor and his reactions and subtle actions seen on film makes it so.

    I hope Snabba Cash, Die in a Gunfight, Charlie and the Countryman and New Years Eve will put Zac back in the whirl of being an incredible actor such as the Hollywood leading men.

    If he does need another team, he should start looking for them now. It may be too soon for him to become a producer, yet it also opens the doors for opportunity for new writers and getting that amazing script to land in his hands.

    So what he’s not working with the Aronofskys’, Snyders, Speilbergs’, Tarintinos’ , Scorsesi and others…at some point in his life he will and they’ll be lucky to have him.

    Lol…I’m sure I chopped up these directors names in spelling…my…

    I hope The Lucky One will be a hit…I’m not sure what’s the appeal with Nicholas Sparks books…I’m having a hard time getting through the book, and only perk up when I see Zac’ s character role in the sections of the book…shame, I don’t remember the characters’ name yet…I’ve only just started reading the book.

    I knew it would come to this—everyone fighting and taking sides.

    A lot of you don’t seem to understand that when a young couple is in a relationship for as long as Zac and Vanessa were, the relationship can become all consuming. That can be scary because it can interfere with your perception of who you are as an individual and affect other areas of your life, including career choices. These two also had the added burden of being in a very public relationship where everything they did was over analyzed by fans, haters and the media. It still is. If other aspects of their life are equally as important to them, they had to step back and evaluate everything in their lives, including the relationship and how it is affecting them. Maybe that’s what they both did. They decided to part ways for a while to see if they could handle life without having each other as a support system and be individuals. I’m sure that will be a hard transition for both of them.

    But be prepared for a huge fallout of hate when either of them starts dating someone else. We already have a hint of the hate blitz that will hit Zac. One of the comments I recall from another site abut Zac and Teresa: “He downgraded from a Lamborghini to a Kia.” Any girl he chooses will be hated by both Zac and Vanessa fans. The new babe will be perceived as ugly, fat, stupid, not his type, a total downgrade and using him to further her own non-existent career.

    Any guy Vanessa dates will be hated by the Vanessa fans who loved Zac and perceived him as their boyfriend and themselves as Vanessa. They will hate Zac for “dumping” Vanessa (them). The new dude will be seen as too ugly, too skinny, a nobody, using Vanessa to get attention, and a total downgrade from Zac because he doesn’t “look good” beside Vanessa.

    I’m sure Zac wouldn’t want anyone bashing Vanessa, and she wouldn’t want anyone bashing Zac. Can’t everyone just let them be to do what they want?

    maria Says: I think you’re right about CSC, but honestly, I never thought the story sounded all that good. I’m sure some people loved it, but it wasn’t my taste. Had no interest in seeing it, and the trailers were awful. I have no interest in TLO either, for the same reason. NOT a fan of anything Nicholas Sparks. But I really do have hope for Snabba Cash and Fire. But those are no where near ready. I think Gunfight and Countryman sound too similar, with the falling in love with the daughter of a violent powerful man. One sounds like drama, the other is listed as humor and romance (countryman). Will wait til I see more about it. The problem with both is, they aren’t anywhere near starting. I think it’s possible he’s taken on WAY more than he can handle as far as getting projects off the ground. He needed to focus on acting, getting good quality roles, and working, working, working. With a production company, he is being pulled in too many directions, and nothing is going yet. I really feel it’s overload for him. What I don’t think is good, is that he will not have anything out this year until NYE, and that is not something that is individually any big accomplishment for him. I think this is where his team has failed him, spacing out projects to keep him out there.

    Again, this is just MY opinion. I know I’ll be attacked, told to leave, that I am vicious, etc. But voicing concerns about his career choices is not a vicious attack. I’m not being disrespectful. I’m not trashing him. I’m not calling him names. Just saying what I think.

    You know when you make a comment, make sure you have the facts and have seen his movies to make an unbiased evaluation.

    The Necessary Death of CC is now in pre-production.

    There is a script available for those who are interested to know more about it. Though its not 100% sure it will be strictly followed, it does give you an idea of how different and challenging this role is for Zac.

    Locations of filming: LA and Hungary
