    And as always,Zac always looked fabolous..

  • Zac Attack

    Gorgeous man. Now we just need to see him in mature roles. Groom your career, hon, so we can see you for years – you need to go “ugly” or “developmentally challenged” in a role. Show em your chops.

  • Teddi

    @HannahBanana: Go away! Take your hate with you! How can you bad mouth someone while they are doing charity stuff? Hope you are perfect yourself.
    Zac, you are beautiful, lovely to see out and about. And a new film announced today too!

  • ha

    @: charlie st cloud dumbass that was a good movie

  • @amanda:

    stfu dumbass the reviews for that were terrible

  • http://twitter.com/officalvstyle Abby

    I’m so happy to see him smiling again. He seems like such a great guy and I love that he goes to charity events.

    LOVEEEEEEEEEE HIMMMMMMMMMMM <3

  • Teddi

    @: The reviews may not have been brilliant but that doesn’t matter. What matters is what the audience themselves thought of it. I loved it. So did a lot of people. Have you seen it yourself or just read the reviews?

  • franl

    you are the man, zac!

    @:

    His new film ‘The paperboy’ is directed by ‘Precious’ director, Lee daniels. ‘Precious’ was critically aclaimed and got nominated for 2 Oscars. He’s starring alongside a well respected cast, too. Have you seen ‘Precious’? Because i believe and am confident that Lee daniels is the perfect director for Zac to work with. He got a good performance out of Marriah Carrey and two other actors got nominated for oscars. I believe this will be his next ‘good’ film. Plus, ‘Hairspray’ and ‘Me and orson welles’ where both critically acclaimed and where very ‘good’ films.

    vanessa has two movies coming out and she went to cannes not partying out and zac good luck with the film

  • gIrL wOrLd

    @: omg u have no idea what u type silly! Perhaps just ignorant or jealous. The reviews were bad for the screenplay. A lot of critics said he was the only gud thing,for e.g Claudia puig of usa times said that the movie was a so so show case for a solid zac efron. And thats just one there were many other critics who appreciated his performance. And he has never been in gud movies lol what was Maow and 17 again( a box office hit) . The dude is talented and he seems to be doing a lot better than other disney stars even though he has a tag that he came from disney which did pose a problem to get mature roles. But he seems to be doing absolutely fine . Thats bcoz people who are hardworking and talented there is no stopping them.

    Also i think zac is picking projects very smartly. He is playing safe with movies like tlo and nye which would be box office grossers and at the same time taking projects which would win him critical praise and also taking on different genres like action movies. He is a very downtoearth, smart actor who likes to stay low key and known only for his professional life with of course a big heart which supports noble causes.

  • take that

    @kami of course someone who has no idea abt hairstyling would say the same idiotic stuff so i don’t blame you. Besides zac parties yet we never see pics of him or making headlines for that bcoz he never poses for the paps to get attention and the fact that we had a post abt zac after so long which is abt a noble cause proves it. And besides partying which every normal youth with a life does he also supports charities, gives attention to his career and makes headlines for it (abt his movie projects)and spends time with friends and family.

  • jen

    @es check ur facts vanessa has only one movie coming out and another one an indie is under preproduction.

  • Teddi

    If I have to be brutally honest about Charlie StCloud I did enjoy the film, BUT… It was very different to the book. They dropped characters, made-up new ones, Changed a lot of the plot. In a lot of ways it was the film of the book in name only. It was a great film, but not a good adaption of the book. And I’m still p**sed about not seeing Sam grown-up at the end! Cos I know from IMDB that they cast someone for the part but then changed it :( Zac was brilliant though!!LOL

  • kerri

    Zac was spotted at the Paladuim to see The Cars last night after the La Family Housing event. http://www.twitter.com/zacrunninwild

    Zac fans vote for him. Make sure he gets that golden popcorn at http://www.mtv.com

  • gIrL wOrLd

    @Teddi: agreed it was basically the director’s fault. Burr steers although a very good director messed up csc. He made zac’s character too pretty. The posters also saw him staring at a distance with bright blue eyes when it should have shown pain and grief. There were many close up shots of his body and face. The girls and his fans would sympathise with a pretty character but the mature ones, guys and the critics won’t. As one poster said zac needs to play ‘ugly’. Also the biggest problem was the screenplay, dropping out characters and important parts of book even then zac’s performance was appreciated by critics. I guess the movie was targeted towards his female fan base. But still a lot of others liked zac’s performance and now he has a lot more mature fan base than he had two years ago. And i don’t care what anybody says i am glad zac did csc. The movie proved he can take up mature roles and which actor has not given a flop? The point is he got other mature roles based on his performance in csc. And the projects don’t seem to stop coming his way.

  • Teddi

    @gIrL wOrLd: Oh Yeah! Don’t get me wrong I did like the film, to be honest Zac brings out the little girl in me, He could sit there reading nursery rhymes and I’d watch it! lol But the film didn’t have the emotional depth it could have had. And I think it would have been better with the story more complete. Plus!!! No Oscar!
