Zac Efron: 'Gypsy Was My First Audition'

Zac Efron: 'Gypsy Was My First Audition'

After doing an interview at MTV studios, Zac Efron chats away on his phone and heads out for Late Night with David Letterman in NYC on Monday afternoon (April 13).

The 21-year-old actor, who appears on the May 2009 cover of GQ, appeared on The View early this morning.

Zac shared with the ladies about his first audition, “My mom asked me if I wanted to audition for musical theater because I was always singing and dancing around the house — they were pretty annoyed by this at the time. So, she asked if I wanted to go to Toys ‘R Us or somewhere one day because I had wanted to get an action figure or something. Little did I know, it was actually a trick. She dropped me off at this audition for Gypsy. I ran around in a news cap and sold newspapers. I got the part…I didn’t even get to go to Toys ‘R Us after.”

Be sure to catch Zac on The Late Night with David Letterman TONIGHT!

    V is a amazing person all the way

    she deserves something better

  • dani

    Dear Vanessa…run for the hills. A man who says he doesn’t want to commit until he’s 40 or “ever” is wasting your time. Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free

  • birdie

    Zac looked great, but they really didn’t let him speak. Just the “Toys
    r Us ” story that seems to change every time I hear it. LOL. Also,
    the fantasizing comments a little creepy cuz she’s a little too old.
    I’m with Whoopie on that one.

  • athena

    WOW, he Looks H O T !!!!! Glad I wasnt’ there..I’d probably be screaming my head off.

  • rosileee9

    Have to say Love Zac in that suit and the colour suits him really well, mind you I think in most of the suits he wears they look really good on him, he sure has been busy the last few weeks.

    Me and my kids are off to see 17 Again this Sunday as it’s my birthday on the Monday so it’s a treat for me as I love matthew perry to so I’m really lookingforward to it.

  • I-like-red

    something bothers me a little. zac gets all the attention from the world because of his new movie (even when they were in the middle of the filming – prosses). Vanessa also has a new movie coming out –why can”t she get a little atention from the world to? Why can’t she be on more talkshows, article and all that? I just think its a little unfair, thats all.
    Even though zac is a good actor, vanessa has just as much talent.

  • aw


    Zac’s movie is coming out next week and has already been released in other countries. Of course he is going to get attention. I don’t know what middle of filming process you’re referring to because he was not doing promo work while filming any his past 3 movies.

    Vanessa’s movie doesn’t come out for at least 3 more moths. You don’t start promo like Zac is doing, this early on. You’ll see Vanessa out doing talk shows/articles closer to the release date of her movie during July/August.

  • aw

    3 more months*

  • zac fan

    omg he´s realllllllly hottt

  • Zanessalove4ever

    i guess all the wedding rumors aren’t true :(
    This is what Zac said in the GQ magazine about getting married:

    On getting married to Vanessa in Kauai: ‘That was such bull****. I’m definitely not getting married. In this business, you’re either getting married or they want you to be pregnant. I’m not getting married until I’m 40. If ever.. Maybe not 40. Maybe not until I’m 30.’

  • luv ya nessa

    any one tell me where is vanessa and is zac gonna be in MTV OSCAR??? and look at vanessa she look soooooooooo hoot >>

    any one answer plz and i didnt see zanessa togather in the pirmer ?? why

  • lol

    Of course he isnt getting married now. Why would he? Its obvious his main focus right now is his career. In the industry he works in,he has to do things,while he is considered “Hot Propery” which he is right now. If he doesnt do things now all his oppurtuinities could fade away.

    He has all his life to get married,if that is what he chooses. I get the impression he will do things HIS way and when he wants to do them.

    Good Luck to him is what I say.

  • jessie

    i bet he was talking with vanessa on the phone LOL
    can’t wait to see pics of zanessa tommorow!!!!
    ZANESSA FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • luv ya nessa

    there is in self magazin 25 u dont know about vanessa any one know wt is it ??????????plz if any one read the magazine tell me ?

  • Nativenyker
  • dani

    #31 that interview when was it????????????????????

  • dance2thisbeat.

    i agree dani. eventhough i don’t like vanessa much. he does have the looks but is the most stupid, immature person ever. & this is coming from an MP’s daughter.
