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.

    I hate when guy wear those stupid caps. They look way to self conscious. Way too look at me.

  • Deb

    @juddyy:
    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. ;)

    Whoops. Sorry. That was supposed to be to wicked wench, not juddyy.

    Now this one IS for juddyy….
    Zac’s first movie after HSM, 17 Again, opened at number 1 and made $23 mil opening weekend. CSC made $12.3 mil opening weekend. Predictions for beastly are that it will make $10 mil.

    Nope nope CSC floped at the box office we all knew that hahaha
    Just wait when Suker punch destroy alll the movies …
    Bye bye bye efron fans lol

  • peggy

    @Deb:

    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..

  • Deb

    @Juddy:
    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.

  • Deb

    @Juddy:
    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.

  • griffin

    The comments on the JJ junior site aren’t as mental as you lot! Try and get a grip for gods sake.

  • florence

    @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.

  • florence

    @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.

  • love

    i don’t understand why vanessa’s fans have to come to zac’s post and blab or has vanessa paid them..cause we zac fans don’t care what she is doing and if she has her own haters don’t blame us!

  • !!

    @meryam: zac got critical acclaim for both meand orson wells and csc …17 again opened no.1 and vanessa has never opened a movie in which she has done a lead role it is so stupid to compare vanessa who is doing side roles and can’t even act to zac who has a no. Of projects in which heis playing leading roles…and has acting chops

    thanks.

    @florence:
    Florence,
    I don’t know if you are a stupid idiot or an ignorant tween or both, but your comments about Zac are so far from the truth that it’s hard to tell if you are even serious. You are obviously delusional. If you actually believe that you have read these things about Zac, then perhaps you should work on your reading comprehension.

  • Merlin’ Mum

    Zac always looks lovely, except for his beenie, I don’t like those. But then apparently his mum said it looks like a sock on his head!

  • WICKED WENCH

    @Deb: lol. I accept your invitation – call me when he comes over. (-;

  • Lyla

    While you guys are naming films that flopped, don’t forget Vanessa’s wonderful Bandslam.

  • gaga

    well i wonder why people are hating him just because he left vanessa :D im happy that there is no slutty vanessa in his life anymore..he deserves much better :D soooo good and sexy this guy :D

  • Deb

    @WICKED WENCH:
    I TOLD you. He’s here now. He’s been here all night, and although I am one helluva woman, I must admit that I may have met my match.

    Oh geez, he’s ready to go again. I guess I’ll be gone for a while.

    Where the hell are you? Get over here now!

  • true lies

    @!!: 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?

  • florence

    @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.

  • florence

    @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.

  • Lyla

    @florence:
    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.

  • say what?

    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

  • Amber

    @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

    @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.

  • lauren

    @ florence,
    what the hell do you know? do you know them personally? have u ever met either of them? just because your giving your own take on what you think doesnt mean its right, again no one really knows what happend with them or the whole story, all of you can just make assumptions or guess what happened. how is giving what you think going to make it anyone better for you? just because its what you think doesn’t mean its right.

    gezz

  • say what?

    @maria:

    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

  • Merlin’ Mum

    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.

  • Leslie

    @lauren:
    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.
    Just saying.

  • Amber

    @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.

  • Lyla

    @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.
