Zac Efron & Taylor Swift: Duet on Ellen!

Zac Efron and Taylor Swift pull out their guitars and sing a duet on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing today!

The 24-year-old actor and his co-star from The Lorax chatted with Ellen about their dating rumors and what they really did for Valentine’s Day last week.

Taylor, 22, shared, “We are not a couple. He’s awesome, we are not a couple though. You hear people get together when they’re shooting movies, co-stars. But not like animated co-stars. You know what I’m saying. Oh my god, as we were recording our voiceovers on separate coasts we really connected.”

After hearing how Taylor spent her V-day, Zac said, “That’s so different than what single guys do. I went to a screening of a film that I did called Liberal Arts. Then cooked some dinner with a friend.”

FYI: Taylor is wearing an Oscar de la Renta floral cotton dress.

    Oh yeah right!!!!!!! Vanessa’s version was lies as she said it was diustance thing and they are still friends yeah right!!!!! They clearly don’t talk and havn’t since the split and if the distance thing was an issue she wouldn’t be with Josh or Austin.

    Afraid you’l have to keep waiting as Zac will never talk about the relationship.

  • True

    It’s much better to keep things on the down low when you start a new relationship. That way if it ends after a few months you won’t feel embarrassed or have to explain. You can say “We were just friends” and move one. But it’s when you do a big PDA production and the breakup happens, everyone in the universe wants to know what happened. But both parties have to agree to the “secrecy” or it will kill the relationship before it even starts.

    I cannot wait for Zacs movie with Nicole Kidman to come to theatres, I think it’s going to be great.

  • carolina

    look how taylor looks to zac when she see the shirt “we’ve only hookep up once”

  • Sherry

    Very enjoyable interview :). My two favorite celebs and my favorite talkshow host sharing the same stage…. perfection!

  • ?

    @hey there
    I know Vanessa lied when she said that. People like to throw around the term pr a lot and I doubt half of them understand the concept of what it means I don’t like using the term but I’ll use it here as Vanessa gave a very standard pr answer but she still answered. I mean look at the latest break up of Nick jones and delta saying they’re still going to be friends, do u really think that’s true? How many other former couples have said the samething? If zac were to ever talk about it I’m 98% sure it would be all friendly lies and standard pr aswell but I’d still like to hear it. But I think you’re right in saying he’ll never talk about it, which in my opinin is too bad.

  • sam

    Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling broke up FIVE YRS AGO, and while she was promoting her latest movie, reporters yelled these questions to her:

    “Hey Rachel! What do you think of Ryan dating Eva Mendes? Does it make you jealous?”
    “Rachel, hey, over here! Rachel, do you think you’ll ever get back together with Ryan?”
    “Wait a minute, Rachel! How much better was it kissing Ryan in The Notebook than Channing in The Vow?”

    Hollywood relationships.

  • Whatever

    @lauren: He’s a cheat, because I don’t believe he was always faithful during their relationship, and I strongly believe he did something in New Orleans that broke them up when she found out. You can disagree all you want, but behavior speaks for itself. She was visibly heartbroken at her BD celebration in Las Vegas that year, and when he got back to LA, he chased her and tried to fix things. The one who screws up is always the one who does the chasing. Human nature. He’s a snake, cause he is charming to anyone who can further his career, but is intense, a perfectionist, and insecure in private. And because of that, he’s a fake as well. Not to mention how insensitive he was at times to his relationship. There. Plenty of reasons to not like him. But you go right ahead. Just don’t expect us being all nicey-nice to him, when you can’t do the same for Vanessa. You keep it up, so will I. Capece?

  • Lauren

    Again no one really knows what happen between thn with the break up and them off ending it in late jan, I’ve heard things about both of them. He said she said stuff. I’m not saying Vanesaa is perfect either . You don’t think at all zac was heartbroken ot hurt? Vanesaa just moved on like it was no big deal,.


    A great voice coming from a hot man dressed in cool clothes will open more legs than a gynecologist…esp when his name is Zac Efron.

    His sex appeal just exponentially increased…


    @Whatever: but is intense, a perfectionist, and insecure in private.

    And your point is? Sounds like he’s human. I’m like that and alot of high achievers are like that as well.

  • vic

    @WICKED WENCH: yeah i agree this is what people want from him because this is how they know him

  • tim

    @Whatever: ok. and others have reason to believe that her cheating broke them up. and as she has now had to admit to dating her leading man that she was working with at the time I think that is highly likely!!! I heard that when he turned up in hawaii she was sitting on JH’s lap. :(

  • sam


    If you want to cast stones, it’s also “highly likely” that Zac was getting it on with his leading lady in NOLA. You know, as in “finishing” the deed after the director yelled cut. I know a few cameramen, and believe me it happens. Zac wouldn’t be the first to do it. And the break up didn’t happen overnight as in “Hey, let’s break up tomorrow.” In my experience those things are in the works six months to a year before it’s made known to the public. Most likely, the breakup was in progress when they went off to do their respective films. And the distance helped them finalize it.

  • ?

    and I heard he slept with everything that moved while in new Orleans, it doesn’t make it true. I also heard they broke up because she wanted to get married and he didn’t, I heard he wanted to get married and she didn’t. I head he wanted to date around, I heard she wanted to date around and about 50 other different senerios. Why is cheatng the only thing either side can say? You can’t keep a secret that big for this long if cheating was the case it wouldve come out by now another reason I want to hear zacs side of the story even if it’s all lies and pr answeres it would put stuff like this to bed And highly likely? I guess that’s why the break up wasn’t announced for another month, but doesn’t quite explain the whole Eden nightclub date they had or why zac went to north carolna to see Vanessa and also spent time with Josh. There’s a pic of the three of them together on boat for gosh sales. And why so many of their mutual friends still spend time with both of them. Just doesn’t add up.

  • !!!!!!!!!!

    Both of them can’t sing. Taylor is a songwriter of teeny country bob songs but that’s it. And what about Zac? well his notorious singing voice is just meh!

  • jj

    @!!!!!!!!!!: you can sing better?

  • lauren

    uh @ ?
    are you really believing on what you hear based on blind items, ONTD stories and other such things?

  • !!!!!!!!!!

    @Whatever: I totally agree with you. They may refute all they want but nothing can be taken from the truth!!!!

  • A

    Zac was with Lily Collins on Valentine’s Day… and just by the way he was acting, it sounds like he’s with Lily now.

  • ?

    no I base what I believe on facts that I see and hear. Has Vanessa said zac cheated on her? No. Has zac said Vanessa cheated on him? No. Has there been one story or article printed accussing either? No.So why is that the only thing people can come up with and cause hostility. In fact as I recall “no third party was involved.” Tim said he heard zac saw Vanessa sitting in Josh’s lap, we’ll I heard zac Slept around on vnaessa in new Orleans. Is either true? I highly doubt it just like I highly doubt the other 100 different stories and reasons why zac and Vanessa broke up, they all can’t be true. But the only thing both zac and Vanessa fans can say is cheating without anything to back it up. In my opinion besides zac Vanessa and their families the only people who know why they broke up are Ashley, Laura, Ryan, Alex and maybe Brittany snow and maybe rumor Willis and that’s about it. Although it may be possible the other hsm co stars know too but I’m not sure.

  • Tom

    One day Vanessa will probably write a book her and Zac. Especially if people keep blaming her for the breakup. But I’m betting Rumer will spill the beans first about her and Zac’s hot s-e-x. Or not hot.

  • Maria

    Why do you keep capitalizing words in the middle of your sentences? It’s very distracting.

  • LoveNessa

    First of all, it isn’t really anyone’s business why they broke up. He is an actor and a public figure, but he also is entitled to a private life. You do not get to know everything. He will not ever say why they broke up, because he is too much of a gentleman. Do you really expect him to say that he left her because she was cheating on him with Josh? He would not do that to her.

  • Whatever

    @?: That’s what burns me up about the “she cheated” lies. I heard stuff about him for YEARS, AND in New Orleans, and even HE said in an interview that his time there was life-changing. His fans have very short memories about all that. In FIVE years, not one rumor of her cheating ever happened. Yet, she ends up briefly dating her costar about 4months after her breakup, and it’s assumed she had to have started seeing him while still with Zac. HOW STUPID. She loved his sorry ass, and never cheated on him. Dating someone AFTER a breakup, is NOT cheating. If anything, it’s a rebound relationship, and usually doesn’t last, and even he admitted it only lasted like 2months, probably around April to late June, early July.

  • Whatever

    @Lauren: She was too, cause she stayed in hiding for at least a month before she was out publicly in NC when the end finally came. He came back from seeing her in North Carolina, and hit up a bunch of Aussie actresses, and went to a premiere for Teresa Palmer, who was hardly a friend, the following week. He proceeded to party, ninja, bar-hop, etc, with NO sign of being heartbroken. I NEVER saw him look upset OR heartbroken. Yet Vanessa was clearly upset in Vegas after the breakup, and was seen sitting by herself with the dolphins in Hawaii, looking sad and heartbroken. So don’t go saying crap like that. You don’t know anything, missy.

  • Deb

    You are so wrong. The one who screws up is NOT always the one who does the chasing. I would say that the one who is heartbroken is the one who wants to mend the relationship, because they do not want it to end, so they are the one chasing. I would say that the one who screws up is always the one who easily moves on without ever looking back.

  • ?

    @whatever and lovenessa
    I think you both missed my point and I don’t really want to explain it again. And @lovenessa if zac cheated on Vanessa or Vanessa cheated on zac, NO I DONT THINK EITHER CHEATED, why wouldn’t they say it it would give them sympothy and turn the public on the other and give them revenge. I mean look at zacs co star Taylor there, she’s made a career out of outing her relationships and people love her for it.

  • Lauren

    @ whatever
    You don’t know anything either

  • VanFan

    I have followed them for a long time, and I never heard anything about EITHER of them cheating during the 5 years they were together (until I heard the V-Josh thing). Since when does “life changing” equate to cheating? He was the one who said that even though his friends wanted him to play the field, it wasn’t in his heart.

  • You’re so right!

    @Whatever: You are so right. I’ve never seen or read someone that douchy like Zac. His ego is like over the top – hooking up with different bimbos after the break up. These crazy fans try to defend a lost cause and end up stupid. He partied on and on, and reports about him all indicate what a big A… he is.

  • You’re so right!

    @?: Taylor didn’t make a career of her cheating on relationships. She wrote songs about a girl in love and got cheated or played. I don’t think your dear Zac will admit that he cheated. At least now that his career is hanging on a thread. His career is dying so there’s no reason for him to admit to anything. He’d proven it before that all he thinks about is his career and getting in the big league. Sadly he does not have an iota of acting potential to back it up!

  • Whatever

    @VanFan: And you believe that?? He lies all the time to hide the truth. Well, that only lasts so long, cause he’ll mess up somewhere along the way and the truth comes out. What a way to live… In fear that you will be found out. Also, you must nott have followed him all that well, cause there were reports of him hooking up in London with the Harry Potter chick, in Australia with some meet-and-greet winner, in Isle of Mann with a girl who worked at the theatre they filmed at, with Nikki in Toronto, in Hawaii when he was there with his brother when they went to some house party, and honestly, I could go on. So, sorry, but there were MORE than a few reports of him cheating. Nothing proven, but certainly enough to make him seem slimey.

  • You’re so right!

    @Whatever: When there’s smoke, there’s fire! Yup! Touche.

  • derpina

    @Whatever: What girl from harry potter? What Nikki you means Nikki Blonsky? lol

    How many bullsh*t

  • Whatever

    @Deb: I beg to differ. The one who screws up and realizes it, is the one who tries to make it up to the one he hurt. The one who is hurt does NOT go begging the other to take them back. Why would you go begging to someone who supposedly cheated on you?? Uh, no. Wouldn’t happen. You go begging if you screwed up. But you may be right about the one who screws up moves on faster, cause Zac certainly wasted no time, getting off the plane from North Carolina after seeing Vanessa, and hitting the bar for shots with the Aussie chicks. Talk about moving fast.

  • Lauren

    @ whatever are you done?
    If you hate zac so much why are you on here continuing to bash him, we get it u don’t like him, now stop,

  • devon

    taylor and zac are both great. stop with the bashing. whether you like someone or not, don’t post things on here that you wouldn’t say to their faces. And don’t be hypocritical!!!

  • Whatever

    @derpina: The red headed chick. They supposedly met up in a bar late after a premiere there. I’m not saying any of those were PROVEN, but there were ALWAYS rumors flying around about him. Yes, rumors are BS, but hey, sometimes they’re not. And since he’s so good at being secretive, ya never know…..

  • ellie’

    Always love Ellen’s shows..and this one was great too!!!

  • kami

    kinda funny about zac and taylor’s hair:

    “As for Zac Efron… you know I like this boy. He seems sweet. I kind of want him to do well. But he really needs to stop trying so hard. This hairstyle is TOO overdone. I feel like he played with his hair for a good hour before he walked the red carpet – and that’s too long. Also: GIRL, I CAN SEE YOUR HIGHLIGHTS.”

  • VanFan

    You are so full of crap. None of those “report” have any substance to them. And most were PROVEN to be wrong. Also, Zac doesn’t lie about things. He may say things that don’t state the whole truth or that are a bit of an avoidance, but that is so he doesn’t talk about his personal life because it’s no one’s business.

  • sjk


    Thank you for being the voice of reason! Have never heard or seen any substantiated reports that Zac Efron is anything other than a gentleman and all-around nice guy!

    Loved him on Ellen. He sounded great!

  • Whatever

    @VanFan: So why did we never hear of the same with Vanessa?? All rumors are NOT wrong, and where there’s smoke, there’s fire. And he does lie. Whether it’s avoidance, protection, whatever.

  • yum2333

    @whatever you seriously have some mental issues do you know zac have you ever spent any time with him or around him no yet you pass judgment so harshly at the end of the day no one cares what you have to say and zac surely doesn’t your opinion of him doesn’t matter you can bash him until your head explodes but that won’t change our opinions of him zac has millions of fans and the thoughts of one deluded psycho isn’t going to change his appeal one iota and for all the others who hate him so much why do you waste your time and come on a blog that is clearly about him are you really that bored with your life that you have to hate or someone that hasn’t done a thing to you smh this world is screwed up all people do is hate on the next successful person
    I’m a proud fan of Zac’s he’s incredibly humble and he’s going to go far in life and happy that he seems to finally be moving on from his split with vanessa

  • Amanda

    You Vanessa fans stay pressed.

  • Carla

    ZAC is gorgeous.

  • VanFan

    No, he doesn’t lie. Just go away already. You are the liar.

  • Whatever

    You incredibly narrow minded people are missing the point of this whole conversation. I responded to a stupid comment by the resident Zac lover lauren, who loves to accuse others of cheating without proof, when in fact Zac has frequently been associated with rumors of cheating throughout his relationship. I did NOT say any turned out to be true. But she no more cheated than he did. It just did not happen, as much as you pea brains want it to explain the split. So lay off the cheating rumors, cause Zac’s had a plenty, and you can see how sensitive everyone gets about it around here.

  • savannah

    What’s the point in arguing? Whenever I go on here i see that most of the comments are made by two or three people just trying to prove each other wrong. Be positive guys, life will be so much funnier!
