Zac Efron: I Forgot My Socks!

Zac Efron: I Forgot My Socks!

Zac Efron sits down with The Today Show‘s Richard Wilkins in Australia to talk all things 17 Again.

The 21-year-old performer is in the land down under to promote the film and dished to the news anchor on the Oscars, his next project and his socks. Check it:

On packing to travel: “My mistake is that I leave things home too much. I leave all the important things at home. I showed up here in Australia and I forgot socks.”

On working with Hugh Jackman at the Oscars: “I actually asked if there was any opportunity to present at the awards and they said, ‘No, no you can’t present at the awards. But you can perform.’ I was like, ‘Me, perform? Who else is doing it?’ They said Hugh Jackman. Done. I was in.”

On getting through the performance: “I’ve never been so nervous in my entire life. The trick is you can’t look down. There are so many incredible actors and actresses just all around you and if you look down for a second, you might actually look at Angelina Jolie. My hat fell off at the end because I was making eye contact.”

On what’s in store for the future: “I don’t know actually. This is an important step for me, so I’m making it a point to take my time and choose wisely.”

    Lol, he was making eye contact with a celebrity, that’s why his hat fell off at the end of the performance ? LOL, Zachary is just adorable. ..Oh, well maybe he can buy some australian socks there. I would !!

    ..Though, the picture of him looks a little weird, I still have to say that he looks Hot :D He just needs a haircut is all.

    he’s cute! but why is his hair so greasy and unwashed looking these days lol

  • pop86

    Normally, I disagree with the posters that say “Zac needs a haircut” but this time I must say Zac seriously needs a haircut. I hope he get one when he comes back to LA.

  • mike

    love him!!!

  • pop86

    I was the video the reporter did a great job. He was smart and didn’t ask stupid for the sake of being cute or witty.

  • Vfan

    WTF? Did Zac really go in public with his hair like that? Wash your hair and get a hair cut buddy. That look does not work …at all.

  • jo

    What’s up with the hair Zachary?? cut it bb

  • miss zanessa

    aWwWW he´s sO adOrable ^^
    and he´s always funny that´s why i love him

    he forgot his socks? LOLz luckily it wasn´t his underwear XP i always knew boyas aren´t the greatest at packing

    i agree with u tabia i also think he forgot more than just sucks… mmm dunno maybe a certain brunette hehe anyway i know they have separate careers so they don´t have to be attached to the hip all the time

    poor zaccy he gets so intimidated when he´s around angelina jolie :P
    i heard this interview of the oscars after party when he said he shouted at angelina to say hi ^^ cuz they were far from each other then angelina turns around but zac turns away cuz he was so embarrased
    now his hat fell off beacouse we was making eye contatc with her? yeahhhh hehe

  • Kelly

    Omg Zac get anymore hotter and sexer,

  • Kelly

    Can Zac get any more hotter and sexy.

  • JustGonnaSay

    Tehheeee!!! LOL!

  • JustGonnaSay

    Baby V is brunette? I thought she has black hair. I guess the color looked like black. I like her brunette hair. Like really brunette. Almost black hair color makes me hate her.

  • aw

    lol the hair, looks like he just got out of the shower. It was a good interview, the guy interviewing him was excellent. I’m glad he’s really thinking about his future projects first. I hope he considers the fact that it’d be better if held off on musicals for awhile.

  • Lissy

    I dont care if he doesnt has socks. He is sot hot, believe me we want to see his body and face, not his foot.

  • desiree

    So much for how close he is to Vanessa. GF’s usually help BFs pack if they are really close. This relationship, as you call it, is a sham.

  • Soni Hannigan

    I think he needs a hair cut bad. Quick Zac, get a harir cut and get back to Vanessa

  • aw

    desiree- mental/emotional help. Go get it.

  • me.

    zachary, bb. i really miss your short, black hair. ):

  • zac is a rat

    The one programme in aussie made a point of mentioning that Zac came to aussie without his gf Vanessa Hudgens don’t know why everybody knew that he did’nt want top bring Vanessa along to spoil his fun.

  • zac is a rat

    By spoiling his fun I meant that if Vanessa was there he could’nt go sneaking around and going with any female with a pulse.

  • wedding peach

    How cute!! Zac has a secret crush on Angelina Jolie.

  • athena

    Oooh, having no socks in dress shoes is sometimes painful.

  • athena

    He doesn’t know how to wear his long hair except for when it’s under a hat… = )

  • Lydia

    hair cut needed!

  • leslie

    When he was in Australia a couple of years ago for the Hairspray promotion, he also forgot to wear socks. He was on Rove, and Rove looked at him and pointed it out. It was a really funny interview.

    He’s going to be on Rove again. I think on March 15?

    He is SO FREAKIN’ HOT.

  • NativeNYker

    I hope he also forgot his undies and went commando!

    Rants, Thoughts & Merde

  • zanessa forever


  • zac is a rat


    Then he should have taken her with him if it’s only important things he leaves at home becuase socks certainly are not that important.

  • zac is a rat

    According to Zac’s site charismatic he and Taylor are spending a lot of time together in Aussie.

  • What the HECK!
