Zac Efron Covers 'Flaunt' Magazine (Exclusive Images)

Zac Efron is dapper on the cover of Flaunt magazine’s Men’s Spring Fashion 2013 issue, out on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 25-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On High School Musical: “But here’s the one thing about High School Musical, that a lot of people forget or don’t realize. It affected a lot of people, its resonance, culturally, was massive … and at the same time, it was in every sense of it, the luckiest break in the world. The wrong thing to do—and that’s what all these interviews now are trying to get me to say— is to turn on it, to like sh– on it, call it crap. But that’s insane. There are hundreds of people who began doing one thing when they were younger, who go on to develop and refine and shape their vision, as they get older, and other concerns—like fame, or money, take a back seat to other ones.”

On not complaining about his life: The b—hiness doesn’t do anything. It just puts you out there and it makes you look unappreciative to your fans. If I’m talking to my friends, or somebody important who can have some influence on or affect the situation, that’s one thing, but to b—h about attention while getting attention? I’d be doing it to the very people whose job it is to get that information—who are watching me and have control over that information. Therefore, it makes them upset, they read it like it’s hypocritical, and so they spread some bullsh–. You should hear the chatroom sh– that gets said every time you try to complain. So that’s why I’m not going to complain. I will do a lot of things in my life differently to make sure it’s not known or tweeted about or photographed. But it’s a complete day-to-day situation. I mean, I wish I could sit here and be completely honest—but I guess that’s an even bigger responsibility—and it’d take a more courageous man.”

On making good movies for the studios: “It’s really tough. I feel like I’m in the trenches with them. It’s really hard because I respect these people so much. And they are some of the smartest people I’ve ever met. And they struggle more than I can even comprehend with the problem at hand—the dichotomy—the challenge of making good movies and making movies that people want to watch. And right now, being me, I personally know which ones I want to be in. I feel like the other way. S–t, I feel like I can be effective in one.”

    He’s basically calling out all those ungrateful little ***** in Hollywood. Like Bieber, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, etc. Those who talk about their personal lives then get pissed when they read it in a magazine. Or sell themselves to become more famous, but slack off on paparazzi.

    Mandy Says:

    I think he brought up a really good point though. I feel like Miley Cyrus speaks so negatively about Hannah Montana and has pushed so hard to be far away from it. Like Zac Efron said, everyone starts somewhere and breaks come from the most random places. And you still need to be appreciative. I really like that he expressed that.

    Lafe Says:

    @milena:
    he is just being a complete hypocrite, and he admits he is an hypocrite. He said he acts and behave the way he THINKS everyone wants him to behave, and he says what he thinks would make his fans and the media happy. He admits he is not authentic, he is not a genuine person. If tomorrow everyone starts to love dark eyes dudes, he will probably start to use contacts, because he is whatever his fandom want him to be, he is not authentic or genuine or even real to anyone. He is just another hollywood star, while his fans still find him atractive he would still working. no substance, just a pretty face.

    @Lafe: Don’t know what interview you were reading, but that’s not what he was saying. Go be pressed somewhere else because the answers he gave were honest, well-spoken, and insightful.

    milena Says:

    @Lafe: I love zac, but something makes me angry, and see actors, pointing the finger at others!

    I do not like attention, like the others! when in fact the acting profession and all about attention.

    well, even hypocritical

    @Lafe: yeah right.. maybe you are too jealous because even the PHOTOSHOOT can’t help you hahaha

    Marie Says:

    @Lafe: you are clearly a hater or you can’t read really good..

    Sad Says:

    It seems like it’s finally getting to him.

  15. 15
    Brit Says:

    @milena: He’s not pointing the finger at others, he’s saying from his stand point it makes no sense to openly complain about the excessive attention fame can bring. It’s highly moronic to complain in interviews like this about how hard it is to be famous, when in reality what they’re doing in the interview is meant to call attention to themselves and whatever project they’re promoting. His words on the situation were completely on point.

    Sad Says:

    @Lafe:

    You’re right. He is a hypocrite. Everyone in that industry is a hypocrite. His profession is not one that allows people to be completely honest, or genuine without fear of losing their following (and income). He’s just admitted he’s not brave enough to tell the truth about how he feels about being hounded everyday and about the fact that he’s forsaken his privacy (and possibly sanity) for his career. He’s not one of those stars with “word vomit”, who don’t consider the repercussions of putting BS in the tabloids that’d be better off in a therapist’s office.

    From where I’m standing, it looks like he’s trying to make the best out of a bad situation. He has the right to complain about the unwanted attention should he want to. He only desires attention for his work, not his personal life. You never hear about him getting drunk, sleeping around, doing coke or going to rehab.

    Plus, he’s not the only one riding on his success. He has a manager and a publicist who need paying, and a responsibility to maintain a long career for the fans who have supported him thus far. So excuse him if he wants to play the “smoke and mirrors” game a bit longer. Who are you to judge?

    @Lara: he is saying what? dear God boy is confused, even more, he acts way too hypocrite… he says what his fans wants to hear, he tries to seel his good image but he isnt like that, or we wouldnt be getting the comments we get, like the last one in oh no he didnt, like seriously… he just tries to be what everyone likes, but he isnt dishonest and that shows who he is and the perez hilton thing is just a little proof.
    @Lafe: you are onto him!! he was a jerk and a liar, but are we surprised? to be honest, no i am not, people can shut their eyes, but here he just proves how he wants open the disney doors, but with doing some things like saying oh i just want to grow up, i dont want the good boy image, and then acting this way… too much lies

    he’s REALLY HANDSOME.like,really..

    Lafe Says:

    @Sad:
    There are many comments about him drinking beer in the morning or trying “to score coke a couple of times”. But I agree, he has a good PR team, they are good enough to hide his bad habits. Maybe Justing Bieber should hire Zeff PR team.
    At the end of the day, his hypocrisy only affects his fans.

    marie Says:

    @BO:
    i highly doubt it, Vanessa has never complain about Disney (she has said she is grateful), she never said anything about about the press, she said sometimes they are a pain in the as-s, but at the end of the day she is just living her life, and Vanessa has never said anything about her private life. No ones know anything about her relationship with Austin. They don’t even talk about each other in interviews. Just a casual “boyfriend” here or “boyfriend” there.
    He is probably talking about Miley Cyrus or Justin Bieber.
    Stop trying to look so desesperate, you are the only hater always on Zac and V threads. STOP. You should start feeling sorry for Zac, he sounds really depressed, maybe you should go to LA and give him a hug, he needs one.

    Alex Says:

    I wish more young celebs were like him. He’s so well-spoken. I like him even more with this interview. He will go far with this attitude :)

    Alex Says:

    @Sad: Perfect comment, even if this person clealy will never understand.

    marie Says:

    WOW he just sounds so sad and depressed. He needs better friends ASAP.
    As a former zanessa fan, i can see why his relationship with Vanessa didn´t work. Vanessa is just a happy person, she is like blessed just by the fact of living a new day, she professes her faith, and is just grateful towards everything in her life While Zac just sound different. Im not going to lie, i kind of miss the *happy Zac*. I hope he finds a girlfriend or someone who can love him and he maybe would see how beautiful being true to yourself is, everything is beutiful! love you Zac, i hope you start feeling better.
