Zac Efron is a Gadget Guy

Zac Efron is a Gadget Guy

Zac Efron called into New Zealand radio station ZM 91.0 on Friday, November 14th and talked with DJ Polly on gadgets, high school and actor Christopher Walken.

Not only did Zac, 21, confess that he’s a gadget kind of guy, he also shared what the hardest thing about high school was for him was. He said, “Probably the academics. I was in all advanced classes, I took advanced placement English and history and that was pretty time consuming. I was very focused on that.”

The High School Musical leading man also shared that he couldn’t believe that he was in a movie (Hairspray) with actor Christopher Walken. He said, “I’ve enjoyed most of his movies at this point and he’s just a huge talent. I remember I was doing a table read and I just couldn’t believe that I was sitting so close to this guy. He sounds exactly the same in real life, it’s amazing.”

    This will make sense why he stayed a day more in Australia, while V was back in the 13th for her sisters’ b-day! love Zaccy!

    I wounder why Vanessa came home and Zac and Ashley are still together doing Hsm3 Pormo.

  • http://ZacEfron Zac Efron’s #1 fan

    Hey Zac and Vanessa will go to japen in Jan of 2009 for the pormo of Hsm3.

  • Boji

    From Zac’s demeanour, you could tell he is an intelligent person. Didn’t he say he was a nerd in school?

  • mia

    Zac is love :)

  • evelyn

    #24 – how do you know ashley is still in australia? just curious.
    does anyone know for sure if zac is in australia or la ?

  • Trina

    No one knows that Zac is still in Australia. He called in to the New Zealand radio station. He could have made the call from LA, SLO or Kingdom Come. Why would people assume he’s in Australia because he called a New Zealand station??????

  • zac efron hotttt

    zac efron is hot.. I AM IN LOVE WITH HIM!! omg omg omg i want him vanesa is lucky

  • pop86

    #29, you’re right he could have made the call from anywhere. It been a few days since we seen any pictures of Zac/Zanessa. They are doing a good job of hiding from the paps.

  • jazmin

    haha i love how its a mystery where zac efron is.
    very ninja stealthy.

  • shadow

    Early pics of Vanessa at the airport might have been a plot to stair the papp to follow her, while Zac is waiting for the limo to come around to pick him up at a airport security area. Just a guest. But it is keeping all of us in suspence of their hiding out from the world. And it is good for them to get some rest.

  • jazmin

    k all due respect but uhm…
    #18 – just wondering, if zac makes you sick, why don’t you save yourself some energy by not clickin on any posts about him and not commenting? you know, you could save that energy for the next time you ACTUALLY get sick. :D
    besides, dont put negative vibes out in the universe, its not very nice.

    and man this kid is like ridonculously smart. its insane. APs are soo hard. im not even in all APs and i am dieing a very slow death. i have no idea how he survived his grade 12 year WHILE doing the first hsm.

    oh and i thought he was chillaxin with his dad somewhere.
    him and v are soo cute. family always comes first. her with the coming home for her sister and everything. I LOVE THEM.

  • steph

    ah, he is amazing. absolutely gorgeous & unbelievably smart & talented.

  • hititquitit

    aw i love Zac he’s so cute

  • tree

    At the end of the interview the lady say’s she will have Vanessa on next week. Zac could have called in during the time they were all in Australia and it was taped, It doesn’t have to be that he called in on the 14th, that could be just when they aired the interview.

  • http://ZacEfron Zac Efron’s #1 fan

    I don’t know maybe Zac is in New york with Nikki Blonsky.

  • http://ZacEfron Zac Efron’s #1 fan

    Who know where Zac is.

  • Will

    Yea New Zealand thats where i live!

  • Trina

    They interviewed Vanessa before they interviewed Zac because the lady mentioned something that Vanessa had told her to say to Zac. But they are going to air Vanessa’s interview later.

    They could have done the interviews from Australia (called in) or they could have done them from LA (called in).
