Zac Efron Praised By 'Dirty Grandpa' Director for His Comedy Skills!

Zac Efron Praised By 'Dirty Grandpa' Director for His Comedy Skills!

Zac Efron gives a slight smile while walking through LAX Airport on Monday (August 8) in Los Angeles.

The 28-year-old actor’s comedy skills were recently praised by his Dirty Grandpa director Dan Mazer.

“To be brutally honest, it was with a certain amount of circumspection that I initially took on Dirty Grandpa. When I heard Zac was already attached, I took a beat. But then I looked at some of his other comic work and I thought, ‘Hang on, he’s really good’ He understands what he is, the difficulty of where he came from, and what it feels like to be hamstrung by all that. He’s unfairly tarred with that brush of being insanely good-looking. You can’t imagine that someone so beautiful could be funny as well. Why would you be? If I looked like that, I wouldn’t worry for a second about being charming or funny. But he does and he is,” Dan told The Guardian. “I like to do improv on set and most of the cast were bona fide comedians, but Zac matched them all punch for punch. I thought he’d be this high-maintenance flibbertigibbet but he was often driving the comedy. He was determined to stretch himself.”
