    hot zac

  • My 2 Cents

    Wow Zac looks incredible!

  • DB

    The press on this movie kind of freaks me out.

    Why is it necessary for Nicole Kidman to urinate on this poor guy?

    He may be hot, but nobody deserves that in retaliation for being hot.

    Wacky freakin’ planet

  • R U sure

    I want that poster !!! Boy do you look hot !!!!

  • Epic fail

    @DB
    LOL and kind of gagging too
    Totally agree with your comment. This planet (well, planet Hollyweird) is so seriously wacked to think people want to see someone urinate on someone else. And even use it as part of the promotion for the movie. WTF is with that! Not even having Matthew McConaughey on board could push this movie over the line of “limited release”. Will not be seeing it.

  • sharona

    There seem to be some morons on here who don’t understand that urine is the ONE thing to alleviate the devastating pain of a jellyfish sting. Seriously.

  • DB

    @sharona: lol…

    I did not realize the movie was about Jellyfish Stings – my bad…

  • Epic fail

    @sharona
    First up – Go F**K yourself, calling people who have a valid opinion morons. And secondly, urine is NOT “the one thing to alleviate the devastating pain of a jellyfish sting”. I live in a country where jellyfish can kill you. (Box jellyfish and Irukandji). A member of my immediate family is a university graduate in marine biology, and standard procedure for treatment of jellyfish sting(i.e. the ones that don’t kill you) is hot water.
    But you go right ahead and pi*ss all over yourself the next time you’re stung by jellyfish, because that’s the line used by media promotion for this flick, to validate the use of a scene that will ultimately make people choose not to see it.

  • Just an observation

    @sharona: Obviously the “jellyfish thing” is not to show how to “alleviate the pain” they cause, it’s just to shock the hypocrites and moralists, seems that they succeeded in that no? Funny that someone loses an eye in a violent scene in this movie, but a boy being pissed shocks much more…

  • http://kevinredondo KRP

    nicole is a hot mama

  • joanie

    Actually, even though we know that urine is not a cure for jellyfish stings in this day and age, in the 60s, it was believe to be a cure. I believe this movie is supposed to be set in the 60s, therefore, it makes sense. BTW, she didn’t “really” do that, no matter what they want you to believe.

  • Jr

    @just an observation
    He didn’t actually lose an eye, it’s just a stunt in the movie. She actually took a piss on him. Just makes me shiver writing that a bit.

  • Epic fail

    @Just an observation
    Oh my god. Are you kidding me. My comment just states facts. I don’t pretend to have principles or standards, I actually DO have standards! And because of them, I will not be watching a B grade movie that shows an old woman pissing on a young man. So I have morals, definitely not ashamed of that. Bet Nic wishes she had some right about now, because most people now know she has none. And nothing produced by Hollyweird shocks people.

  • kami

    love this comment from top critic j.r. jones:

    “The movie curls back and forth as sinuously as a snake through the bayou, tracing the fine line between desire and degradation.”

  • orange

    For all the smart a$$ critics here who are rating the movie without even watching it, it doesn’t matter what you people think about the movie nor does it matter what we say on some stupid gossip site. there are real critics out there who mostly all of them have praised zac’s acting in both paperboy and any price. so again what you say does not matter.

  • claire

    @orange:
    Actually the movie currently has been rated 48% on Rotten Tomatoes, so this means it is ROTTEN. The critics praised Nicole Kidman (as usually) and Matthew McConaughey. I’m pretty sure they said that Zac Efron doesn’t help the movie.

  • Moh123

    Nicole kidman is gorgeous

  • love&hate&black&white

    @joanie:

    If, as you say, Nicole didn’t REALLY pee on Zac in the movie, but they are all promoting the movie telling us that she DID actually pee on Zac, then that is gross manipulation and sensationalisation (is that a word?) for the sake of PR, and I take a dim view of that. Furthermore, it is apparently a deviation from the book, thus in my mind, an attempt to bait an Oscar Nom. Just my opinion; don’t attack me for it, thank-you.

  • http://Comcast Ginnie

    Love Nicole Kidman. Nicole is a great, beautiful actress. Fascinating gal.

  • WICKED WENCH

    @claire: To your surprise, NOT. The critics love Zac – producers ought to take note.

    And peeing on a jellyfish sting is a walk in the park next to the grossest toilet in Scotland (Trainspotting). That made me very ill.

    PS: It’d have been better if his name was Jack Off.

  • Reviews

    @claire:

    “In this crowd, Efron more than holds his own.”
    -
    “Zac Efron (2012′s “The Lucky One”) continuing to prove he’s more than just a pretty-boy”
    -
    “Daniels is a good actors’ director, and everyone benefits: (…) Zac Efron, the nominal title character, shows confusion and need as the journalist’s kid brother.”
    -
    “The big surprise here is Zac Efron as Jack”

    Getting that from some Rotten reviews, don’t even look at the Fresh ones, seems that you are wrong

  • Revenge-Is-Sweet

    @DB: Why don’t you read the book from Pete Dexter? The whole scene on the beach is in there, but in the book it wasn’t Charlotte who did it, it were nursing students. In the book it’s from page 87 to 93 or up to page 96, it includes Jack’s stay in the hospital.
    They changed a lot of things from the original book to the script but they didn’t change everything and it’s an important part in the book. Read it, it’s just a good advice.

  • R U sure

    Zac Efron himself said at the TIFF in an intervier with The Star. , he was with David O. That it was not real pee , it was fake. He says it twice.

  • Amelia25

    Beautiful Zac!

  • http://Comcast Pam

    LOVE NICOLE KIDMAN–people that are worried about Nicole and Botox, if Nicole looks that beautiful we better all load up on it !!!!!

  • Rachel

    @claire:

    Or maybe you didn’t read the reviews? Even the Hollywood Reporter praised his performance and I believe THR is a top critic. Of course Nicole is the best, but the entire cast has done a good job :)

  • Rachel

    Here is the ‘Rollingstone’ review: http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/reviews/the-paperboy-20121004

    Mixed sort of review. 2.5/4 stars. But says the script has guts and the movie heaps of atmosphere.
    Oh, the topic here: character posters are amazing! I love Zac’s poster! Its just..great.

  • grace

    A skeptic telling someone to go f**k themselves is as inevitable as death and taxes. It WILL happen.

    You finally got an inside look at what goes on in their private message boards and personal emails.

    Nicole Kidman is just gorgeous and she has a husband that is equally gorgeous. Both are soooo talented.

  • Mhy Ellen

    Zac Efron is so gorgeous. Hard for someone to stand out in terms of looks in Hollywood, but he is a real knockout.

  • OK

    Have to say Zac really did look his best here.

  • rainbow2

    Here!! We can start here!

    Hopefully this thread is better!

  • What a laugh

    When I made my suggestion about going to a different thread and @Just My PO agreed with me, I was thinking about going to a thread that wasn’t necessarily a Zac thread. I suggested a non Zac thread—or one that has someone who is possibly associated with Zac—to see if it would make a difference in the deleted and moderated comments. I know threads of people who get lots of comments but there is no problems with the moderation or comments being deleted. IF we go to a thread that isn’t exclusively Zac’s and our comments get deleted or go into moderation then possibly it is a problem with Disqus or certain people who make the comments instead of it being somebody trying to shut us up for what we are saying about Zac and/or Sami. Hopefully this makes sense. Going to yet another Zac thread won’t give us a clue. If we go to someone basically unknown and our count gets high and we have problems then we can think it is due to the amount of comments. Anyway, if Zac’s team or whatever is trying yo stop what we say, then they are looking for us on a Zac thread.

  • Lolo11

    I agree I th k we are definitely being monitored on these threads.

    ZAC EFRON I GOT A ‘MONKEY’ ON MY ARM … In a Bar

    http://www.tmz.com/2016/03/03/zac-efron-kinkajou-bar-baywatch/

    oh dear, the monkey is known to like drinking alcohol and was drinking zacs drink….
    its an irish pub and heres one of the comments

    “The girl who posted this said her and her friends bought Zac six shots of Patron. Naughty Boy. Back to rehab it is.”

    and not to mention how wrong it is to be using the animals for entertainment

  • What a laugh

    There are so many things that don’t make sense. He has to know he is being watched so why does he insist on being seen in bars? Does he think he is proving he can handle it? If he has to be seen for PR purposes then why not be seen out in a nice restaurant dressed up? If he can’t control his drinking then why doesn’t he do it in private in his hotel room? See all the problems about this?
