Jessica Alba Mispronounces Zac Efron's Name at MTV Movie Awards 2014 (Video)

Jessica Alba poses with a shirtless Zac Efron backstage at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards held at the Nokia Theatre on Sunday (April 13) in Los Angeles.

The 32-year-old actress, along with Rita Ora, presented the award for Best Shirtless Performance to Zac for his work in That Awkward Moment.

PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Zac Efron

Jessica had a little bit of trouble with the pronunciation of Zac‘s last name and said “Eeefron.” Watch the video below to check out the moment.

We have to say this wasn’t nearly as bad as John Travolta‘s butcher of Idina Menzel‘s name though!

    not this $hit again

  • k

    Something tells me this was just a way for her in her mind to get talked about. I mean look what happened when John Travolta did it. She probably thought she would get the same attention. I mean Eeefron really?

  • Elle

    John Travolta completely changed Idina’s name. Nothing will ever be as bad as that.

  • Lisa V

    Lol even Jessica Alba doesn’t know his name. Career = downhill with bad habits and no one recognizes you anymore!

  • Scarjo

    I guess it’s good he was game but he’s starting to look like a meathead.

  • Ava

    “Jessica Alba’s a smart chick” ……Said no one ever.

  • funny

    Remember when she won best hottie with him at the Teen choice award and she dissed him by saying he wore more make up than she did . Now she does this to his name? Funny

  • Mia

    @ Lisa V .. Who’s giving who the award, Jessica Alba’s career is going to any event that will have her , like presenting at MTV , when she’s not nominated or promoting a movie and getting pap’d with her kids…so really it’s not like she’s a actual working actor for you to imply her flub makes Zac Efron look bad, she ain’t Angelina Jolie .

  • Ellen

    Zac was the highlight of the day !

  • Allie

    @funny:

    I remember that too. That is the first thing I thought of.

    Why is she there anyways?

  • Kylie

    @funny: You’re right..that was years ago around 2007 maybe..they both won? She knows how to pronounce his name…maybe she just doesn’t like him?

  • Becky

    @Elle: lol, I agree. John Travolta won that hands down. I’m still laughing lol.

  • Jessey

    @Lisa V: yea, no one recognizes you, yet you are trending worldwide…..

  • Lane

    @Ellen: touchè lol.

  • Jane

    Everyone during this presentation was gorgeous.

  • Rach

    @Mia: I know right.

  • florence2

    Boy as Zac sunk low showing off his chest once again he really likes getting his kit off
    That’s a real sign if a serious actor who wants to be known for his great acting skills yes sure Zac.

  • Sammi

    Sad short gay guy with tragic career….

  • Helen

    Yes, having a movie coming out is so tragic….

  • Molly

    I never knew that showing off your chest… In a category that shows off your chest is a crime. Man of his word. Thought he was about to back down. Thank you Rita!!

  • alaia

    At least he has Neighbors coming out, which got great reviews at SXSW. What does Jessica have going for her?

  • sara

    Wow she mispronounced his last name. People don’t make mistakes? U efron fans need to grow up

  • hannah

    So cute & such a good sport, love him!

  • hannah

    @florence2: So you think Matthew McConaughey isn’t a serious actor? How many times has he taken his shirt off and it obviously didn’t hurt his career. Lighten up

  • Fruitfly

    Who cares what she said when Zac Efron shirtless?! He made me forget my own name.

    Can’t wait for Neighbors…

  • xoxo

    Sexy with and without the shirt. He’s sexy no matter what <3<3<3<3
    @Lisa V: Jessica Alba does know his name, and so do you because you’re on here commenting about him. If he was a nobody who you cared nothing about you would’ve skipped over this post entirely.

  • HappyUnicorn

    Who did zac attended the mtv show with? Who was sitting next to him?

  • Sad for him

    @Hannah matt hasnt done it like this . there is nothing wrong with showig your bod if your an actor but it should be for the part in flm or excercise or beach but to flaunt and use it as a cheap stunt is diff. It’s sad cuz he wanted to be a serious actor this stunt will follow him and he will get plenty of film offers that will exploit his bod. Not great serious parts.
