Zac Efron: Shirtless Abs Flashing on 'Townies' Basketball Set!

Zac was last spotted attending a Lakers game, where the team was defeated by the San Antonio Spurs in the first round of the 2013 NBA Playoffs.

Zac Efron is incredibly handsome,” Zac‘s Townies co-star Seth Rogen recently shared. “He’s the sexiest [expletive] on the planet!”

Seth added, “I did a scene with him, and we’re both shirtless, and it was a very humbling experience. I marveled at the fact that we’re literally the same species.”

    Yet again he takes of some of his clothes for a film no surprise there then

  • Martha

    Why does he always have to show off his body? I guess he has no other talent.

    He hopes that by looking at his chest, women will forget the fact that he’s a horrible actor.

  • TF

    what happened with his movie at any price? i thought his fans were saying it was gonna be a super brilliant movie with both critical acclaim and box office success. It has worst reviews than Spring Breakers (AAP 59% and SB 66% – both had almost the same promo: VFF, TIFF and SXSW) and its not even close in the Box Office, i mean, his movie flopped

  • lo

    You dumbasses do realize he doesn’t dress himself for films, right? His clothes are chosen for him by the wardrobe department.

  • IMO

    Jealousy and Hate the first two comments how sad you are. Anyway Zac and a basketball ahh sweet memories . He looks adorable and you can certainly tell his character is up to no good in the scene with the doll. LOL

  • andrea

    @TF: Maybe the weren’t bigs box office success movies, because it weren’t made for that. That’s called independetn movies. They don’t even made so many promo for it. I mean.. they’re actor, not the boys from 1D selling their lives in their “movie”

  • Malu

    @andrea: andrea actually SB made it better and with less media promo than at aap, wonder why? Well not really, critics said it all

  • flyhigh

    SB had way more promo and hype than AAP. SB got a lot of attention for being Korine’s new movie with hilarious Franco and naked Disney girls, while AAP is a small farm movie.

    It’s hilarious non other than Hudgens fans are complaining about an actor taking clothes off for movies. LOL Go to Hudgens posts and worship her unemployed a**.

  • aka

    he has nice body. whats the matter with being naked?

  • Malu

    @Martha: because he is the hot body in Hollywood, sadly that doesn’t make him a good actor.@lo: he doesn’t choose clothes on the movies but he DOES choose his roles, and every movie of his at some point has him shirtless showing his body, And no, liberal art can’t even be taking in count because its a minimal cameo, now I would like to see him challenging himself, so far, as I see it, he is only the hot body, and every movie of his tries to make the b.o based on his body…

  • Malu

    @flyhigh: her unemployed a**, you seem to forget that while Vanessa worked one year and a half non stop, zac did nothing… Now at least she choose better than him.

  • Malu

    @flyhigh: oh and no, aap had all the media and sag and cinema society, Spring breakers got the social network work, they didn’t have thr, or gma as aap did… SB opted for the almost mouth to mouth route

  • flyhigh

    Z did nothing? He was busy promoting Lorax and The Lucky One around the world. Then he went to Cannes for The Paperboy and started developing new movies like Are We Officially Dating, Die in a Gunfight, and others he’s producing.

    Hudgens only got these roles thanks to her agent. She hired the new agent in 2011 and he worked his a** off to buy her three roles that year. Agents tend to work hard in the first year because of the contract. Since then, the only work she has got was an extra role in Machete Kills. Poor Vanessa has been attending lots of irrelevant events recently to colletc money because she can’t get acting roles by herself. You can’t compare V’s “career” to Zac’s or any other working actors’ in Hollywood. Nice try though. lol

  • flyhigh

    Stop arguing nonsense. How many premieres did SB have internationally? And its actors appeared in lots of TV shows and interviews to promote SB.

  • levvyy

    florence2 vanessa isn’t any better though. sb, tfg, and gs she plays a slut so.

  • Martha

    He should really start taking on more challenging roles if he wants to be seen as more than just a pretty face. Jennifer Lawrence already has an Oscar and more critical acclaim and she is younger than Zac. Zac needs to start looking for films that will earn him an Oscar one day! Dane DeHaan and Logan Lerman have already received more critical acclaim and they aren’t even as famous.

  • TF

    i’m not a Hudgens fans actually, but i agree. All his fans were in every single Hudgens post talking about how she was showing her body FOR A MOVIE, and how AAP it was going to have more succes than Spring Breakers.
    IA IA girls, everyone is talking about this…

    20 Film Stars You Definitely Won’t Remember In 20 Years

    5. Zac Efron
    Credit where credit is due, Zac Efron has done a good job distancing himself from High School Musical. Starting out as the fresh faced teen who needed a vocal double, Efron went through a complete image overhaul and became a Hollywood hunk.

    That’s where it ends though. To be honest, considering him “Hollywood” is overly generous. He’s so sporadic with his films that people forget he even acts. He did one film in 2010, none in 2011 (New Year’s Eve doesn’t count, that was an ensemble cast) and pretty much one film in 2012 (The Lorax was a voice role, people aren’t there for him. The rest of them were independents that no one really got wind of). Remind people you’re still around Mr. Efron, or you could be forgotten in five years.

    Your parade of screaming girls will only get you so far.

    i mean taking your clothes off in every movie won’t take you too far SMH

  • flyhigh

    lol if you’re not a Hudgens fan how do you know Z fans are in every post of hers? Even Hudgens fans are too ashamed to admit being one. Poor Vanessa. lol

    Some people said that about Z when he first starred in HSM. It’s been 7 years since then, and he’s getting more work now with more critical acclaim. They said the same thing about Leo during his teen idol days and look at him now.

  • Diedre

    The ‘species’ quote from Seth Rogen was adorable :)

  • TF

    i’m a JJ fan, i’m on almost every single post here.
    Just look at Leo, miserable, almost 40 years old, he always looks misarble, never married, financially stable. WOHOO!!!!. i dont remember how many Academy Award nominations he had – 2 or3 ¿?- or how many Oscars he already won; Can you please enlighten me?

  • florence2

    Zac has no where near the talent of Leo and yes Leo has done naked scenes but not e very movie unlike Zac he says he wants to be taken as a serious actor then keep your clothes on efron don’t always expect to get the girl in the film and dig deep to actually show you can do more than cheesy romance films and taking clothes off.

  • AnnaStern

    Whatever, Martha… If you got it, you might as well flaunt it while you can. He’s never gonna look as good as he does now and he’s carrer is probably gonna take a nosedive in the near future, so id say he’s pretty smart for that.

  • lala

    adont know why so much hate on zac. i am also a vanessa fan but damn. at any price didnt get that much hype because it wasnt suppose to be hyped i think it was more for critical viewings not public and is an INDEPENDENT movie. although it didnt get very high ratings not every movie he does is gonna be good. sometimes u need to do some really bad movies in order to humble yourself and grow however u cant just take any role that is thrown at you. i respect that he has done townies since it varies his movie choices however i have never been a fan of seth rogen thats why im not so sure. just have to wait and see guys :)

    at the moment he is still eye candy so he gives the public what they want and then the serious films he keeps his shirt on.
    townies- shirt off, at any price- shirt on, paperboy- shirt off, parkland- shirt on. see the pattern?

  • Merlin’s Mum

    @Malu: But when are they being released???? Can we keep V out of Zac’s posts? And I thought he was supposed to be getting fat and ugly now? He still looks amazing! Yes he is shirtless, did you think that they were going to make a film about Amish college students?

  • Revenge-Is-Sweet

    Hateful stuff all over again. And from whom? I don’t say their names, they know exactly whom I mean.
    Well has just one of the haters here, ever read a script? I’m sure the answer is NO. Every single thing is written there. The way they have to look, what they have to wear, where they have to stand, everything. And yes his shirt is open, so what? He’s shooting a movie for goodness sake. And Zac hasn’t written the script. And even if he was on lunch break or whatever. Maybe it was warm in LA and he opened the shirt for this reason.

    Well I tell some of his haters, who obviously are nothing but VH hardcore fans. Her movie SB got removed from the cinemas (in a few countries here in Europe) 4 days after the start because nobody wanted to see it. Put David Caruso, Emily Procter and the rest of the CSI Miami team in the movie, and you have a longer episode for CSI Miami that you can split in 3 episodes, then it would be at least interesting to watch.

    Independent movies like The Paperboy, At Any Price are not made for the big money or that they are shown everywhere.

    I don’t even have the right words to express how pissed off I’m already. The ignorance here is unbelievable. Some people should really turn on their brains and think before they even start to talk. But I guess that’s something impossible. The haters will always hate him, they don’t even need a reason for that, for them it’s already enough that his mother gave birth to him.
    And as for his body, he doesn’t have to hide it, the workout in the gym pays off.

  • Dirk

    If I had a body like that, I’d want to show it off too.

  • HR

    ah Zac Efron – he really just has to get better scripts and work with better directors. Not an Efron fan but people should cut him more slack. It’s very difficult to transition from a Disney, Teen actor to mature roles. Unfortunately, he chose to do a Nicholas Sparks adaptation which doesn’t really give him street cred in Hwood despite the Box Office returns and Charlie St. Cloud type of films just don’t cut it. Instead other young actors in the same age range or younger like Dane deHaan, Andrew Garfield, and Logan Lerman have moved into the territory that was once considered Efron’s for the taking. He needs to work on a prestige project. Lerman who received award buzz for Perks has worked with Darren Aronofsky and has been cast in the new David Ayers film with Brad Pitt. Garfield will topbill the new Scorsese feature while DeHaan continues to earn critical plaudits for his work. Even Efron’s co-star Miles Teller is getting good reviews for Spectacular Now. Maybe Parkland will put him back in the game.

  • lala

    @HR: i 100% agree with what you have said :)

  • BO

    well well , haters out the closets i see .puh lease , what is garfield and logan and who ever the hell is compared to zac .zac’s achieved more far more things than they could in a lifetime .and fyi , he had his big break as a serious actor via paperboy and AAP .since you are ranting of logan’s reviews , why won’t you go read zac’s reviews for paperboy and aap .am sure they are much better than your logan’s .and fyi , it’s zac who’s in parkland with all oscar nominee cast as the lead .think that should explain his league .

  • http://deleted BO

    hello lala from lala land

  • R U sure

    Two different people two different posts Please let us keep it that way.

  • lala

    @BO: i dont know why you insist on stating that i am from lala land when im not even hating on zac just defending him since i am also a fan of his. i dont recall making snide remarks to you.

  • mo

    What you have a problem? But simply enjoys the sight. lol

  • Stacy

    Zac Efron is gorgeous, and he is talented.

    He looks somewhat like Logan Lerman, which makes sense because Zac is part Jewish and Logan is full Jewish.

  • Lola

    I’m sorry but spring breakers or at any price were not box office success. Spring breakers got loads of promo, and all of you people saying that zac needs to sell his body to promote a film, are being hypocritical because vanessa was in a bikini literally for all of spring breakers, and spring breakers is a shallow film with very little plot and a notoriously dreadful script. Harmony korine is nothing but a talentless little hipster pervert who films 2 hours if not more of girls supposedly ‘acting’ and ramin bahrani is a very talented director who although didn’t have as much success with at any price (his least successful film) has tried to promote a film based on realism and not a ridiculous vehicle about college girls who decide to smoke pot and party for 2 hours worth (what is that promoting?) At any price may have gotten a tiny bit less on rotten tomatoes (59% and 66%- there really isn’t much difference) but the film has a lot more meaning and zac efron and Dennis quaid earned more acclaim for their performances. On EHS there are small excerpts from reviews, many of which were mixed, but in the vast majority of the reviews good and bad zac and Dennis have earned many acclaim for their performances. ( Overall i think that because both films were independent films, therefore all of you people who would argue that at any price bombed and spring breakers was a box office smash are invalid. The only success that both films gained was critical acclaim.

  • Revenge-Is-Sweet

    @Stacy: Zac is ethnically Jewish, but he doesn’t practice the Jewish religion. He’s an agnostic, his parents raised him that way. If you don’t know what it is, Agnostics are undecided if there is a God or not.

  • Sharona

    Why in the world do people come into a thread about ZAC EFRON and start posting about Vanessa Hudgens?! Makes no damn sense! They are two different people who are no longer associated with one another and have gone their separate ways.

  • Stacy

    @Revenge-Is-Sweet: I know Zac is agnostic, what I meant was, he’s of part Jewish descent.

  • Merlin’s Mum

    @Sharona: My view exactly.

  • Sara

    Short, cute, no talent.

  • Jr

    I could ask the same question of Zac fans. Why are they always on Vanessa posts talking about Zac. Don’t cast stones till u look in the mirror.

  • ontd

    @Jr: Yep. his fans are constantly on Vanessa’s threads not only making rude and disgusting comments about her and her bf but also harassing her fans as well. @Bo is the a prime example. Seriously check yourselves before you make accusations.

  • Martha

    He needs to be careful otherwise Logan Lerman, Dane DeHaan, and Andrew Garfield are going to steal all the spotlight!! Those 3 actors are working on critically acclaimed movies while Zac is going to get stuck making romantic comedies for the rest of his life. Zac was supposed to be the next DiCaprio but now critics are saying that Dane DeHaan is actually the next Leo DiCaprio due to his versatility. DeHaan was in The Place Beyond the Pines with Bradley Cooper and Ryan Gosling; he was also in Lawless with Tom Hardy and Jessica Chastain. Zac needs to turn his career around and avoid being typecast!!

  • M

    @Martha: Unfortunately I think he’s too late. I do not understand why he didn’t go up for Logan Lerman’s role in Fury. I honestly, believe that he could have done the role as well as Lerman. Lerman is younger but I consider him very comparable to Zac. Zac has talent but he keeps getting typecast. This movie looks completely raunchy and I don’t think it will do anything for him careerwise. I say never say never with him though. He may be like Bradley Cooper..who didn’t really come into his own until he hit his 30′s.

  • kami

    i didn’t think at any price was out yet. at least it’s not in my area till around the 17th of may. anyway i saw the paperboy last night on netflix because it never played in my area. zac was really good. he and the maid (anita?) were my favorite characters. everyone else was so psychologically messed up, it was freaking scary. lots of gag-worthy scenes. when they guy guts the alligator and jack gagged, i did too. lots of heavy stuff in that movie.

  • ian

    Damn he is so damn hot…

  • sjk

    Please stop talking…..obviously you don’t understand critics reviews and all of the hard work he has put in. So seriously, stop talking.

  • efron

    @flyhigh: AGREE. Jesus I want to punch this girls in the face. I bet they have not even watch zac efron movies

  • HR

    @M: it may not be too late but he does have to think hard about future choices. Lets break it down further: at the end of every year the 2 biggest industry trades, Variety and The Hollywood Reporter hold their actors roundtables featuring discussions with actors who have received awards/critical buzz in the last 12 months. The only young actors invited to the roundtables in dec 2012 were Quvenzhane Wallis, Elle Fanning, Logan Lerman and Tom Holland. The only actor from The Paperboy (which was disappointment after Lee Daniels’ superior Precious ) with any real critical buzz was Nicole Kidman. If you are a real fan of Efron, you would also want him to get on board prestige projects. Like i said maybe Parkland will hopefully mark a turning point in his career. No hate here. Just an honest observation of the latest casting devts

    Beautiful Zac!
