Zac Efron: 'Paperboy' Underwear Dance was Improvised!

Zac Efron: 'Paperboy' Underwear Dance was Improvised!

Zac Efron shakes hands with Ellen DeGeneres while making an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Thursday (October 4).

The 24-year-old actor talked about dancing in his underwear with Nicole Kidman for their upcoming movie The Paperboy, which hits limited theaters this Friday.

Nicole is so amazing to work with. She’s also very improvisational and when she finds the character she can sort of maneuver in and out of the lines,” Zac said. “You never know what to expect. This was supposed to be a very serious scene. It was a sort of an intense dramatic moment for me. So I was very prepared to give my all in a dramatic moment and before I knew it music starts to turn up around me and she kind of looks at me and says “You want to dance?” And they’re still rolling so I can’t really say cut. And before I knew it we were improvising an entire dance in the rain.. It’s one of my favorite scenes in the movie.”

Zac was adorable, but Jared I don’t think it was cool for you to post this video before the show even airs. I’m sure NBC is lovin you about now. LOL

He’s a lot thinner than usual.

Zac, it’s about time you get over your Nicole crush. It was a movie and she was playing a role (period). If he isn’t seeing a shrink, he should be. This infatuation with older women stems from a problem somewhere. Or else the rumors of his gender preferences are right on track.

Honestly was NOT a fan of his, and I saw Charlie Cloud or whatever and thought, “damn, he can NOT act in drama” but Lee Daniels somehow pulled out a RIDICULOUSLY good performance from him for the Paperboy. Nicole Kidman was the best, but Zac seriously showed he had at least has lasting potential. Still not 100% sold on him, but it looks like all he needs is a director like Daniels to pull a strong performance out of him, and he’ll maybe just mature over time? Whatever, just saying that I’ll actually consider seeing his future films, so long as he delivers performances such as this.

WOW he did get skinnier…..

# 9

Ellen+Zac= wow!

Come on people, stop this stuff about him liking older women. He worked with Nicole Kidman, loved working with her and is just stating so. Get over it.

Whoever said he has no talent and hence had to dance in the movie, check the reviews please. All the reviews said he did well. The entire cast is said to have done a great job.

Wow, you have already seen the movie? Nice to hear you also( like the crtics) felt that he did well in it. I hope you see ‘At any Price’ and like his performance in it, Bahrani is a great director and the reviews say that Zac has done a good job.

@”>Ella: : I agree with u

That’s all he can do is fantasize and gush about older women becuase he sure as hell could’nt handle a mature women.

florence2 @ 10/04/2012 at 2:28 am

Was meant to say he could’nt handle a older mature woman

@Rachel, yes at TIFF! Of course, the girls all screamed until my ears were bleeding every time he took his clothes off, and when he’s dancing in his underwear. I was a little worried he was just being used as eye candy, but (as stupid as it sounds) him taking his clothes off and everything were helpful to his character. It fit his character’s personality. Basically, it all had a purpose. And he did really well in it. Obviously the fangirls were gonna praise it to no end regardless of how it was, but coming from a guy (well, gay guy, but really not into Efron like that), I can say not only does the film deserve to be seen, but also Efron’s performance. And of course, Kidman and Matthew McCoughnagey (spelling?) were incredible. I swear, Matthew’s having a pretty great year, what with Magic Mike, Killer Joe, and now Paperboy. Anyway, I won’t spoil anything else. Just see the film!

@Rachel, also, i didn’t get to see his film At Any Price at TIFF because I arrived late :(( And I don’t know much about that film. I really was just dying to see The Paperboy. Not really for Efron (which is why I didn’t know about AAP), but he surprised me and impressed me so much now I will see At Any Price when it goes to theaters.

Zac you look great ! Losing weight for a role? You still look great, can’t wat til Friday !!!

aww looks at all those hates again..if you cant say something smart, you can gtfo

Fantastic, hot,charming,nice,funny,adventerous,very talented guy…

what is your problem?
you have been hating zac ever since 2011 and coming on here and giving your bullcrap opinion, newsflash no one cares we get it you hate zac.
move along.

Vanessa could take a lesson from Zac about thinning.

lol, haters are mounting ambushes of thumbs down again?

The movie is based on the novel of the same name so I guess the looks and all come from that.
And hope you like his performance in ‘at any price’ too.

@florence2: You’re nothing but a joke. As long as Zac and VH were all lovey dovey you didn’t say anything. Then everything between them was over and you started your stupid torrents of hatred towards Zac. You and some others stop the crap and leave his threads for good. Go back where you belong, nobody wants you or your stupid comments here.
