Zac Efron: 'I've Never Had More Fun Preparing For a Role'

Zac Efron: 'I've Never Had More Fun Preparing For a Role'

Zac Efron rocks an all-denim outfit as he arrives at his hotel on Wednesday (April 18) in New York City.

The 24-year-old actor is in town to promote his new flick, The Lucky One, where he plays Marine Logan Thibault, a lost soul who finds a photo of a young woman amid the rubble of war-torn Iraq that ends up saving his life.

“We had to train with the dogs,” Zac told MTV News. “It was all very, very fun but a lot in-depth. The more training you do, the more it becomes second nature, and it was a great experience. I’ve never had more fun preparing for a role.”

FYI: Zac is wearing a Levi‘s trucker jacket and a Roark shirt.

    Zac, you should really check your suitcase for wire tap devices and cameras. Justina Bieber is following your every move, and stealing everything from your jeans look to your hair style to your ex girlfriend (almost).
    You need to take a restraining order out on her. Ever seen Single White Female?

    LOL@haters.. they’re so frustrated that The paperboy is selected for Cannes competition. How come Zac going to Cannes will be a shame? He’s going because his movie’s being screened there.

    The real shame is some famewh0res like Vanessa Hudgens, Paris Hilton, and Lindsay Lohan were there posing for photographers in 2009-2011 without their movies being invited. These pathetic haters are dying in jealousy. LOL

    Sorry to get you’re panties in a bunch but the only reason the paperboy is going to cannes is Nicole Kidman that’s who they want to see not efron or Matthew who are basically the same person. I said before that movies only hope was Nicole and from what I’ve read she’s the one who had to carry both her co stars sorry asses. I mean efron getting his head beat in by the critics here again.

    Here is another reveiew:

    People, what is the problem that the paperboy is going to Cannes? Yes, it has an amazing cast, especially Nicole Kidman and seems like a nice movie. Its good for Zac that a movie that he has worked in and seems to have a pivotal role in is going to Cannes.

    Observer Says:

    @Zzz what exactly is your problem? He will still get jobs make money and leave a luxurious life critics or no critics and he still gets to go to cannes. So you can hate all you want, he will be what he will be. And you will just be a hater.

    hold on let me check. No not there, no not there either, is that it, no that’s my iPod. Nope sorry I don’t have a problem thank you so much for asking though.

    He kinda looks like Ryan gosling to me over here what do u guys think

    amber Says:

    What an ignorant comment. Kidman is the only reason The Paperboy is going to Cannes? The last time her movie was selected was back in 2003. Why her movies don’t get screened at Cannes every year?

    And Matthew has two movies chosen in competition this year: The Paperboy and Mud. Do your research before open your mouth.

    Derpina Says:

    @Zzz: Of course The Paperboy isn’t going to Cannes because of Zac lol

    In the same way “Lawless” is not selected because of Shia Labeouf, “On the Road” is not selected because of Kristen Stewart and “Cosmopolis” is not selected because of Robert Pattinson

    They’re just young actors fighting for a place in hollywood and should be glad with the opportunity, you can turn it into something bad or not so good at all, but require more than this is ridiculous

    Assign the selection for a single element is stupid too, everything should work together to the movie work

    Many people doubted the potential of Precious when Lee Daniels selected Mariah Carey, Mo’nique (nothing but a generic Queen Latifah, star of stupid comedies like Phat Girlz) and a unknown Gabourey Sidibe for Precious, and the film succeed very well.

    HH Says:

    @amber: maybe because her directors didnt apply for cannes? not every director wants to show his films at cannes, venice, berlin or sundance. james cameron for example has no interest in festivals. btw nicole was robbed 2003, her performance in dogville was brilliant

  23. 23
    lol Says:

    @HH: you think Nicole was not nominated because the directors “don’t wanted” to show their movies in Cannes? I believe there’s not happened because they don’t find a place for movies like The Golden Compass, Australia, Nine, Just Go With It, Bewitched and Trespass…

    Zzz Says:

    oh don’t get me started on Shia while efron runs a close second the biggest son b itch in the business is that douche. I don’t say this a lot but I’d reaaly like to fight that guy so I could kick his ass. The other two well the jury is still out

    HH Says:

    @lol: no place for that movies yes but for rabbit hole, birth or cold mountain(since 2003)! nicole did some awful movies i dont diny that but except for mr. efron (until now all of his movies are a total disaster) she has done some pearls
