Zac Efron covers Flaunt magazine’s Men’s Spring Fashion 2013 issue, and the 25-year-old hunk chats about getting his start on High School Musical and how he handles the press, but with sizzling photos like these, who really cares what he has to say?
Obviously we're kidding, but aside from dropping the occasional cuss word, he keeps his interview very professional and he comes across as a humble young man.
On how he got his start and why he'll never diss High School Musical:
- “[H]ere’s the one thing about High School Musical, that a lot of people forget or don’t realize. It affected a lot of people, its resonance, culturally, was massive … and at the same time, it was in every sense of it, the luckiest break in the world. The wrong thing to do—and that’s what all these interviews now are trying to get me to say— is to turn on it, to like sh*t on it, call it crap. But that’s insane. There are hundreds of people who began doing one thing when they were younger, who go on to develop and refine and shape their vision, as they get older, and other concerns—like fame, or money, take a back seat to other ones.”
On not complaining about his life:
- "The b*tchiness doesn’t do anything. It just puts you out there and it makes you look unappreciative to your fans. If I’m talking to my friends, or somebody important who can have some influence on or affect the situation, that’s one thing, but to b*tch about attention while getting attention? I’d be doing it to the very people whose job it is to get that information—who are watching me and have control over that information. Therefore, it makes them upset, they read it like it’s hypocritical, and so they spread some bullsh*t. You should hear the chatroom sh*t that gets said every time you try to complain. So that’s why I’m not going to complain. I will do a lot of things in my life differently to make sure it’s not known or tweeted about or photographed. But it’s a complete day-to-day situation. I mean, I wish I could sit here and be completely honest—but I guess that’s an even bigger responsibility—and it’d take a more courageous man.”
