Zac Efron Was A Troublemaker

Zac Efron Was A Troublemaker

Ever wonder what 17 Again hunk Zac Efron was like in high school?

The 21-year-old actor recently dished to Family Circle magazine about getting in trouble, being the class clown and brawling with his younger brother, Dylan. Check it:

On his high-school days: “I was average. I had a lot of friends, but I was not in that ultracool circle. I was a bit of a class clown — I guess to get through the tedium of the quadratic formula! I thought everyone was fair game.”

On what he loves about his parents, Starla and David: “I’ve always appreciated my mom’s ability to listen to me. Even today I can vent my frustration or share my happiness because she made it clear long ago that she wanted to hear what I had to say. I’m thankful to have had that, because between self-discovery and the social hierarchy, high school can be the most confusing time of your life.”

On arguing with his parents: “Oh man, it seemed like every weekend I was in trouble for something! Our disagreements were over small things like curfew. If I got home late, I would get chewed out…I fought a lot with my little brother [Dylan]. We were brawlers and I would always get grounded. If I had big plans with friends for the weekend—camping or boating or surfing at the beach—I wasn’t allowed to go.”

    if that engagement rummor is true which i really dont think it is they arent to young cause my mom was 20 when she got engaged and my dad was 21 and they are going on 15 years.

    you never believe in boys

  • athena

    That’s great his parents instilled such discipline. Look at him now….they have to be happy and proud of him…their formula obviously worked and now they have Dylan to deal with…two boys, iiiiyiiyiii 8 )

    And I’m sure, if he wanted to be bad, I’m sure he found ways around it…and got away with it too. It happens…I know.

  • piinkyprinxcess

    he so humble and down to earth
    gotta love him
