Zac Efron: 'Men's Health' Feature!
Here’s what the 24-year-old The Lucky One actor, who is also the mag’s cover guy, had to share:
On his work ethic: “I could pick up almost anything. If you put it in front of me, I could always find a way to tackle it. I was never a natural at anything, but I could always outwork everybody.”
On choosing roles: “Look, I was just a musical-theater guy. I would have been happy to do that for the rest of my life. But there’s something about me that’s always searching for the more challenging route, and the actors that I really admire are always picking things out of their comfort zones, trying to stretch to see where they can go. It just seems like the road less traveled.”
On transforming his body to Marine-like status for The Lucky One: “By the end of the movie I didn’t recognize myself. You hear about guys like Christian Bale who dive into it and are really able to transform. I’ve always wondered if I had the willpower to actually do it. And I’ll always have pride around the sense that I can.”
