    @leave zac alone:
    You are so right. And the ironic thing is that when he shows up with a guy, the haters call him gay, but if had shown up with a girl, they would be accusing him of being a player and having lots of random hookups.
    Either way, they find something wrong with what he’s doing.

    Nicky Says:

    @Deb: I agree with you. For the haters it completely doesn’t matter what he’s doing, everything is wrong. When he’s hiding at home, it’s wrong. When he’s playing basketball with his friends, it’s wrong. When he goes out to eat something, it’s wrong. When he goes out to watch a Lakers game, it’s wrong. I’m sure this jerks would be happy if he would get arrested for breathing, or using his cell or whatever in this world. The only thing here that screams extremely loud is never ending jealousy. They can’t have him, or talk to him or whatever so for this reason they attack him for no reason.

    @yip:
    You think he is gay or bi? Exactly what do you base this on? Have you ever met him? Do you know him personally? Have you spoken to him? Been in his bedroom? Oh wait, I know what it is. He “looks” gay to you, right? You think that he “acts” gay. How ridiculous. Stop saying things about people when you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. Not only are you making false claims, but you are also insinuating that being gay is a bad thing, which it is not.

    I love the fact that Zac is authentic. So many celebrities feel the need to dress up whenever they leave the house and/or to be seen in public with other beautiful friends, but Zac is quite comfortable in casual clothes and with regular friends.

    To be this way and yet also effortlessly handsome makes him an amazing man.

    PS: Doll face does need some sleep though. (-;

    monique Says:

    “Honestly, if the worst these people can say about me is that I’m gay, then I think I’ll be fine. I can handle it.”

    Zac looks AM-A-ZING. It’s nice that he’s spending some quality time with his friends before he has to start working again. That’s his old friend Chris Reinacher (@chrisreinacher) from Arroyo Grande with him at the game. It’s sweet that he kept his old friends around and that they still get along, which proves his still the same guy :) But of course, que the haters. Their constant “gay” jabs are starting to get tiresome. But go figure their insults are just as ignorant as they are.

    @Deb: I agree with you and Nicky! Very well said.

    @wicked wench: I also agree with you! Loved your comment!

    Oh and another thing. Um… He’s hot as hell. Even when he’s tired!

    Have a great day, everyone!

    @deb you are so right Zac is not gay, good for you that you point out that there is nothing wrong with being gay these haters make life hard on many a young person and don’t realize they are nothing more than bullies

    @lila so you are saying you have gay feelings ?

  41. 41
    merlin's mum Says:

    Zac’s sexuality is his own business. It doesn’t affect his work so who gives a toss. No crime to be gay/bi anyway so who cares! Just wish he would find someone to share his life and make him happy, or perhaps he already has?!

    Deb Says:

    @monique:
    Good quote. I had forgotten that he said that. Also, Andrew Goldman, the interviewer for the article in Details Magazine said this, “In person, by the way, nothing about Efron merits even flipping on the gaydar….”

  45. 45
    VanFan Says:

    @Zzz:
    Again with the assumptions. Were you with him before, during, or after the game? If not, then you don’t know if he is tired or sick or drunk. So SHUT UP!

  46. 46
    monique Says:

    @Zzz: The drinking jabs are getting tiresome too. You can see him and Chris sitting courtside drinking what I presume to be sodas, because their drinks have tops and straws. Alcoholic drinks at the Staples Center have open tops. I’ve been there many times.
    http://i39.tinypic.com/feni1x.jpg His eyes aren’t bloodshot and he’s not sloppy. Absolutely nothing about these photos shows that he’s intoxicated in any way. Nice try though. You needed something to point out, so I guess if I were as stupid and ignorant as you, I would have said the same thing?

    @VanFan: Amen!

    monique Says:

    @Zzz: Did any of us say we had a “problem” with Zac being buzzed? No. I know that Zac’s been drunk, buzzed, wasted, etc. He’s a 24 year old man for God’s sake. I’m older and I’ve been all of those things too. But that doesn’t mean I’m a bad person. I simply said that there’s no proof in these pictures that he’s any of those things. You see what you want to see because you have this negative view of Zac in your head that can’t be dispelled by anything. You might think we’re “thin skinned”, but it’s obvious that you’re thickheaded. And it’s obvious that you’re accustomed to making things up and putting words in everyone’s mouths, because none of us have ever glorified Zac and proclaimed him a “saint” — Zac’s a grown man. He’s consumed alcohol, smoked cigarettes, partied hard, and guess what? He’s living his life and he doesn’t give a **** what you think. And neither do I. But last night he looked great and you need to get over the fact that this guy who you despise so much, is 10x more respectable and successful than you’ll ever be. And he doesn’t waste his time hating on people he doesn’t know. So why don’t you go drink your milk, take your vitamins, and eat your vegetables. Your brain could use the nutrition.

K, bye.

    @lauren: They’re haters not fans. And they don’t even have a valid argument about anything because they’re all just average people living their average lives and sitting at their computers hating on Zac, a person who’s actually successful.

    Whatever Says:

    @monique:

    Drinking and partying hard will bring Zac a hangover and eventual alcoholism. Far to many celebs ended up in rehab. Why should Zac be another statistic? We all know that Zac is a man so the responsible thing for him would be to stay away from drugs and alcohol. He’s not immune to addiction. He looks clean in these pictures but he does look out of it. Maybe he is just tired or something else could be going on. I know one thing is for sure, he needs to slow down. My personal opinion is that he’s be to one too many clubs and downed far too many alcohol substances. Mark my words, he will end up in rehab if he can’t stop with this obsession with partying hard and drinking.

    Whatever Says:

    I meant to say that he’s been to one to many clubs.

    @Zzz:

    LMAO he was sipping on coke the whole time.

    monique Says:

    @Whatever: Unless you’re a close personal friend of Zac and you know what he does on a daily basis, including how he spends his nights with his friends and/or alone, you’re in no position to say that “he needs to slow down.” You’re absolutely entitled to your personal opinion. But unless you’re a fly on the wall or you’ve seen a secret stash of pictures which involve Zac downing shots every night or stumbling out of clubs at 3AM, you really have no idea what’s going on outside of what people are claiming to know on the internet. True, there have been pictures of him at clubs and sightings of him partying and drinking. True, he was there the night one of his friends had a bad judgement call involving a DUI. I’m not saying none of these things happened. But the past few weeks we have seen him working and hanging out with family and friends. He spent a quiet New Year’s away from the public and no one heard of him getting out of control with partying or drinking. There has been no recent pictures or sightings of him doing anything that you’re stating. Before you condemn him to alcoholism and rehab, maybe you should wait to get some proper evidence that he’s this excessive alcoholic and drug user that you assume him to be. From what I know and have heard, he drinks and parties no more than the average 20+ year old person. Just because he’s in the spotlight and scrutinized by many people does not make him any different than a young person living their life and having a good time. I see this website as a place where people can come to support their favorite actor/actress/musician. But instead it’s turned into this place where groups of people with opposing opinions have cyber wars with one another, viciously trying to prove that we individually are right and the other is wrong. We can go back and forth about this, but it’s clear that we have two different opinions and I’m not trying to force mine on you. There’s no point. You seem much more mature than some of the other people here who are saying some pretty egregious things, but now that I’ve said my point of view, I have nothing else to say. Oh, and I apologize if this paragraph is too long. I hope you didn’t fall asleep. Apparently I’m trying to write a book.

    isf Says:

    I don’t know where you guys are from, but where I live, it is extremely normal for guys his age to go to clubs and drink on a regular basis…and they don’t end up in rehab, so…I don’t know where you’re coming from.
    ok, maybe he’s wasted in those pics…so what? I don’t see anything wrong with it.

  65. 65
    monique Says:

    @isf: I live in LA, and all my guy friends go out and drink on a weekly basis. And they all have jobs and are successful, good hearted people. They’re just having fun. So I agree with you. I don’t understand why some people are making such a big deal out of nothing. However, I still don’t think that he’s wasted in the photos. The fact that he’s able to sit properly in his chair and watch the game in a lucid state (while drinking a soda, mind you) is proof enough that he’s not drunk or wasted. Just because he’s not clean shaven and he’s not smiling from ear to ear, that shouldn’t give people an incentive to insinuate that he’s drunk. Those are callous remarks and it makes no sense.

    wicked wench Says:

    Personally, I’m always nervous when it comes to drugs and alcohol. Truth is, creativity and substance abuse and insanity (or mood disorders) are so intimately entwined, that everyone from Aristotle (there is no genius without a touch of madness) to Freud (coke addict) has commented on it.

    http://www.gatehouseacademy.com/blog/2008/10/22/is-there-a-relationship-between-creativity-and-addiction/

    Zac is clearly artistic and talented, and thus may be more susceptible to problems in these areas. Add to this the difficulty intrinsic to all creative societies whether literary, histrionic or musical – an atmosphere of use and abuse – and it makes it very difficult for anyone to remain, well, sober.

    I can’t help but think of Vivian Leigh, the most brilliant actress to have lived. She embodied this genius and madness

    Because I see his potential I sometimes show concern. It’s always out of love, though, and not out of any meanness of spirit. I sincerely want what is best for him, and for him to actualize his potential.

    The way he is portrayed here by his haters is a gross perversion, however, with everything construed to its slippery slope ending. If he has any weaknesses, they are aggrandized to condemn the whole man, and if he has any merits, they are negated as isolated incidents,.

    But you can’t argue with the unarmed, so there is no point debating the issue with fools. There motives are obvious.

    Haters do love to conjure stories about Zac, trying to pull him down. Unfortunately for them, he seems to be a sensible, hard working young man who can have occasional fun with friend but remains well grounded. Thanks to his family and group of friends from pre-hollywood days, he remains focus on his career and continues to churn up movies after movies which delight fans like me since i get to see him more often on the big screen. Yay.

    VanFan Says:

    @Whatever:
    I cannot for the life of me figure out why people have the idea that all Zac is doing is partying, clubbing, and drinking. Certainly he has done that, and no doubt will do so again in the future. But there is nothing that indicates that he is doing any of those things excessively. I’d like one of you to list the times that he has been KNOWN to be drunk. And keep in mind that just because he is at a club or party, it doesn’t mean that he is drinking alcohol. There just isn’t any evidence that Zac is living recklessly. None.

    (And, BTW, in your #61 post, “I meant to say that he’s been to one to many clubs” you were right the first time. It should be “one TOO many” which is how you correctly wrote it in your #60 post.)
