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.

@chris: So, Vanessa has to audition… to get those supporting roles? I can’t believe you’re proud to point out that fact! And It’s not like she’s getting supporting roles in award-winning movies. Ha!
She can’t help but audition because she’s not a “movie star”. Big name actors don’t audition, not because they’re without talent but because producers have faith in their ability to draw audience or to make their films good.

Is he done filming NYE?

chris,
stop talking i dont know what your trying to do, but your obviously trying to cause ****.

@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.

@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.

The above comment was meant for @chris

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.

@Amber: @Amber: agree with every word! First@maria:2nd why will he do roles that u like he would be doing roles that he likes. .just like u like hudgens doing supporting roles in movies sp(which is all abt emily browning and she will get all d credit) and journey 2 oh pls lets don’t get there ..and 3rd zac is doing what he wants he said he liked doing dramatic roles.. And i just didn’t like him in that silly hsm movies he was bashed by critics and when he started doing other dramatic movies people started takn him seriously ,critics luvd him, and if he would have been so out of roles he wouldn’t have dropped footloose probably thats what u want him to be doing singing and dancing all around sorry but all his fans like him the way he is..and u not being a fan doesn’t make a difference cause he has millions of fans all over the world who are just nt limited to this site..luv him and adore him u r just bitter cause he left hudgens.!

@a fan: Amber, you have a right to your opinion but the fact remains no one knows why they broke up. When you have reached Hollywood make it in the industry then, and only then can you judge. 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. LOVE IS LOUDER!

@Fauve: @Fauve: stop promoting sucker punch by the way emily browning would be happy u r promoting her movie! As u said don’t be envious and hop back to hudgens post jealousy is a bad thing which u r of zac’s success and good comments

@Fauve: ok then its vh fans who come and trash him abt stupid rumours..he has a clean past and he is gonna do great!

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.

@WICKED WENCH:
Wench!! Where there hell have you been, man? We’ve been waiting for you. I think he finally tired a bit, and needed to sleep, but you know what’s gonna happen when he wakes up!

@a fan: LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bitter???? You have GOT to be kidding me. They BOTH look happy, and that’s all I care about. Their relationship is in the past. WHO CARES?? 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.

@maria:
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.

@Fauve:
Do you honestly believe that n u d e photos of a teenage girl on the internet is a silly thing?

@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.

@maria:
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.

@Deb: Funny, I read this on IMDb…

http://www.imdb.com/news/ni7681537/

So, Nope, I’m not ignorant.

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

And
http://www.movieinsider.com/m7374/3/the-necessary-death-of-charlie-countryman/

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

@maria: @maria: blah blah blah and more blah thats what u do on every zac thread….haha absolutely worthless are u?????? no work to do nthin ….replyn every comment do u sit 24 hrs barking in front of celeb posts go read something worthwhile or certainly u work 4 them can’t blame u….o yeah zac u luk amazing!!!!!!

@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.
