Zac Efron is the 'Furthest Thing From a Prima Donna,' Says Director Max Joseph

Zac Efron is the 'Furthest Thing From a Prima Donna,' Says Director Max Joseph

Zac Efron rocks a red backpack while keeping a low profile at LAX Airport on Wednesday night (September 24) in Los Angeles.

The 26-year-old actor’s We Are Your Friends director Max Joseph recently opened up about working for him.

“He’s amazing. He is a world-class person,” Max told MTV. “He’s the first person to say hello to everyone and he’s the furthest thing from a prima donna. He’s extremely professional, always in a good mood and keeps things light. He loves the crew. He’s a trooper, and we have a good time.”

Max continued, “We talk about a lot of stupid stuff outside of the film and show each other videos about other movies and characters and shots that we like. He’s just been a great collaborator, and I couldn’t ask for anything more from the star of my first feature. He really is bringing everything he’s got. People are going to be really pleasantly surprised. It’s a balanced performance, and I think people are going to wake up and say ‘Holy sh-t, Zac Efron!’ He was funny in Neighbors and great elsewhere, but this movie really steps up his game.”

  • Iisa Howarth

    I think zac is a genuinely nice guy who cares about people.!

  • jon m’shulla

    Instead of these shirtless shots we should have some ass shots. After all, that is how he makes his living. Being “used” by one director after another.

    Oh yes….he is also a coke-fiend and a racist, closet case.

  • Meg

    @Emma: I agree.

  • Fran

    @Harpo: I was waiting for some ignorant, like you, to say something like that. Of course and ex drug addict can be a world class person. Are you going to exclude him or she just because they had a past they regret? The difference about them and people like you is that they improved. They changed. They realized that something was wrong with them and became better. So yes, an ex drug addict can be a world class person.
