Zac Efron: Tyra Banks Was My Childhood Crush!

Zac Efron dons a beanie while arriving on a flight at LAX Airport on Saturday (April 20) in Los Angeles.

The night before, the 25-year-old actor suited up while attending the premiere of his new flick At Any Price at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival in New York.

“I had a poster of Tyra Banks in my bedroom. She was the only girl I really had a crush on. Other than her, the rest of my posters were skateboards, BMX bikes, and Tony Hawk,” Zac recently shared about his childhood crush.

Zac added, “I hope we get to hang out soon. [laughs] I haven’t gotten to meet her yet.”

FYI: Zac is wearing Nudie Jeans.

    Beautiful Zac!

  • lala

    i remember he said that in another interview a few years ago. he must have a thing for exotic women lol

  • cutie

    ive always seen him as eye candy. when i watch his movies i just think of a future taylor lautner. waiting for the stupid backlash from fans saying im a hater.

  • Hailee

    his face looks fat.

  • katie

    is he gay? i think hes bi

  • lauren

    no he’s not?
    how can you tell if he’s bi?

  • jess

    woah guys stop these “fat” and “bi” statements before BO comes up in here and beats the crap out of us lol.

  • Matthew

    I thought his celebrity crush growing up was Rob Lowe?

  • Poor Baby

    My poor wounded soldier.

  • Malu

    Lol! That was so right Jess!

  • Luke

    So I guess that was because he’s gay but he had a crush on Tyra, as an exception…

  • katie

    @lauren: dont worry hes still hot i just get a “bi” kind of vibe from him. like he likes to “be dominated”. i know ur gonna say oh its dumb how can u get that from a picture but after a while if u study someone u can kind of sense certain things.


    Love his carb face!!! ♥ ♥ ♥ Glad he’s put on some weight. GORGEOUS!

  • Jewel

    Zac is MY crush. Holy fück, he’s so yummy!!!

  • Suzie


    What do you mean by future taylor lautner?

  • Missu

    I want to cüm on his face and lick it off him.

  • lauren

    you can think what you want, but its just stupid to say someone looks bi just buy studying someone?

  • katie

    @lauren: sorry if u think what i said was stupid but i mean its like with frank ocean u may think im talking cr@p but i thought he was gay the whole time (his music is amazing btw) so when he came out as bi i wasnt shocked at all. and i dont even know frank i just “study” him.

  • cutie

    @Suzie: i mean taylor lautner has not had one good movie since the twilight franchise and even that earned a few razzie nominations and all he does in a lot of movies is take his top off….the same with zac. zac has had some good roles like paperboy and at any price but i dont know if his career will really get that far i mean its just an opinion i could be wrong.

  • lauren

    what was the point you were trying to make? because its the same comments people make on here and it’s getting old, so if you were trying to start something then w/e

  • Suzie

    Oh, ok… I though you meant that, just wanted to confirm. You can be right. But, anyway, Zac has done a lot more than Taylor.

  • oh my!

    He has great taste! Tyra is gorgeous!

  • lol

    @lauren: lauren ur like internet famous when it comes to media especially when it comes to zac efron and vanessa hudgens. u are on like EVERY site with the same name which is pretty cool…weird but cool…keep up ur stalking :)

  • katie

    @lauren: why did i have to make a point why cant i just have an opinion? if its irrelevant and youve seen it before scroll past…

  • A$$

    Zac Efron is definitely gay or bi. Is he a top or bottom? Or versatile?

  • Jane


    Rob Lowe is extremely handsome. If this is true, Zac has great taste!

  • sara

    the fact that he had a crush on tyra just makes me think that he really doesnt have an attraction to maika. im pretty sure she is dating someone else anyway

  • lauren

    she has a boyfriend already,

  • damn

    this boy is getting chubby. not a good chubby…more like a tubby.

  • lauren

    if your trying to be funny your not.
    its just stupid of people to say things when it seems they are trying to start things on here, so look at the others who do the same?

  • sara

    @sara: i just said that -__-

  • lol

    @lauren: im not starting anything. i said its cool sheesh. in our own way everyone stalks celebs. heck i even stalk celebs. i mean once i type in a celeb name to see any latest news like rihanna, im pretty much stalking them. no need to be ashamed lol

  • jess

    hey BO, where are u? ready to drool at zacs face that was chiseled by angels and abs carved by the greek gods?

  • lol

  • BO

    and jess and malu , thankz for the compliment *wink*

  • someone

    Well of course it is his personal life so he doesn’t have to share his sexual orientation publicly- but to me it is SO clear that he is Gay. I understand why he doesn’t talk about it but he just looks Gay for sure- something about his posture and his face and all of him just is so clearly Gay.

  • Madonna

    AS IF….

  • Sharona

    I love how all the gays come on here and claim Zac is gay. Wishful thinking of course! Get a life.

  • Sack
