Zac Efron Covers 'Backstage' Magazine

Zac Efron Covers 'Backstage' Magazine

Zac Efron is all suited up on the cover of Backstage magazine’s latest issue.

Here’s what the 24-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On what makes him work hard: “I might not be the greatest actor, but I walk in to every project willing to work hard. There are a lot of people who can slide on talent their whole lives; they’re just naturally gifted. I’ve never considered myself one of those people. I enjoy outworking the opposition.”

On his role in The Paperboy:
“It’s crucial for me to be finding roles that I don’t necessarily have the answers to. I’m proud to say I was courageous enough to step into a part I didn’t fully understand and followed my director blindly.”

On taking a role in a franchise: “It’s not that I’m opposed to doing a big-budget action movie. But it has to be the right project. I don’t know that I’ve earned the right to hold a gun, if that makes sense. I need to pay my dues.”
