Watch the Moment Zac Efron Met Simone Biles & the Final Five in Rio

Zac Efron gave Team USA gymnast and super fan Simone Biles the surprise of a lifetime when he showed up at the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics on Tuesday (August 16) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The 28-year-old actor opened up about the experience and how he was able to keep it a secret from the girls while making an appearance on the Today Show.

Zac said that beforehand he was “kind of getting nervous myself, but it ended up being so sweet.”

“They won gold medals, they were crushing it the entire Olympics, and I was like hiding in a closet waiting to come in, so I didn’t know what to think,” Zac explained, who could be seen tearing up during the medal ceremony before meeting the girls.

He added, “Their story just blew my mind. When I found out Simone and this team were fans, I was like, ‘What kind of guy am I if I don’t show up?’”

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.”

Zac Efron Signed Up for Tinder & No One Swiped Right!

Zac Efron is opening up about his struggles with dating.

The 28-year-old Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates star says that finding a relationship will always be difficult for him.

“Dating is something I’ll never be able to do,” Zac told British newspaper The Times. “As in the dictionary definition of dating, because one way or another I’ve impacted that person’s life and they’ll soon realize it. … A date has to be very long to dispel whatever people think of me.”

Zac also revealed that he joined Tinder after his breakup with Sami Miro.

“Amazingly, when I signed up for Tinder, nobody swiped me! They thought it was fake … That never happened,” Zac jokingly said.
