    He is tres gorgeous.

    I wonder how he feels about Vanessa saying that she would go naked in movies in the future… Not that we havent all seen it before anyways.

    “I will show nudity in a film when the time is right,” Hudgens, 20, told us. “Right now, I wouldn’t feel comfortable doing it, but like I said, when the time’s right, if it’s an amazing movie that I’m really passionate about and that’s what it calls for, then we’ll see.”

  • Ashley

    That’s a good shirt.

  • belinda

    very hard-working and focused

  • Caro

    Lo amo *-*

  • Ashley

    @listen to mayday parade:
    She said she WOULDN’T feel comfortable doing it right now, what’s wrong with that? And all actresses normally say that. That they’ll do it if the role requires it but not just to do it. I mean Anne Hathaway is topless in Brokeback Mountain but she wouldn’t do a nude scene for Knocked Up and no one thought that was weird.
    And that had nothing to do with Zac.

  • Zanessa Forever–x

    Zac Efron i an Actual Pure Babe tbh – x

  • Karen

    #1–listen to mayday parade:

    Zac probably isn’t thinking anything about it since he also has not ruled out doing nudity in movies. Neither have said they would do it at the present but both have not ruled it out in the future.

  • Germangirl

    he lives… wow long time no see…

  • gracemarie

    @listen to mayday parade:

    I wonder what people think about your inability to read. She didn’t say shw would or she wouldn’t. She said she would have to have really good motivation and then she said “well see” – not a yes or a no.

    She simply didn’t close or open the door for it and since Charlie St Cloud has not one but two sex scenes and since I doubt he’s going to do them with his clothes on maybe we should ask her what she thinks.

    She was talking about a “possibility” in the distant future – St/ Cloud films in July.

  • aw

    @listen to mayday parade:

    Probably not care, especially since there’s nothing wrong with the comment? Seeing as how they are the ones in the relationship they most likely already know what each others views are on such things. It’s doubtful they learn things about each other though quotes to the media.

    Glad he got rest and time away from the cameras. It’s nice seeing him out again though.

  • Hannah

    tbh zac can’t really say anything about it since he did that photoshoot with that naked model. but it’s for a movie and she said it would only be for a movie she was really passionate about, and zac would probably support her just like she would support him. i dont see how every decision she makes has to include zac. its her decision not ours.



  • piola.efron

    i love him he is gorgeous(:

  • gracemarie


    I think the whole controversy is dumb. If it’s a great story and she feels comfortable then fine – if not then she won’t. He’s going to have some too as I read ST. Cloud I thought the love scense were important to the story if he does them great if not, fine.

    Their names are Zac and Vanessa not Troy and Gabriella. And they are in a mature realtionship-they can handle it.

  • Katty

    We haven’t seen him in forever! He was probably relaxing with his Mom in his hometown, so good ol’ family time is needed to keep you grounded, good for him.
    I know people get pissed when V is brought up, but I did hope for some ZV sightings before he left. Oh, well. Have a good trip, Zac, and stay healthy! You look good.

  • aw


    Yeah. & I find pretty much all the recent controversies surrounding both of them and every move they take to be dumb. It’s not even about them, it’s fans and such that can’t seem to handle anything they do.

  • jo

    i doubt he cares about V doing n*de scenes, he was with that naked model and I bet he’ll do a n*de scene before Vanessa even does hers. Double standards

  • Steffi r

    lol i was in japan at the beginning of the year when he was last time!!! :D

  • troy

    @listen to mayday parade:

    I’m sure he thinks “I’m dating an actress” and therefore knows there will likely come a time where Vanessa will decide what she will or will not show in terms of whether or not to bear it all.

    Just like I’m sure Vanessa thnks “I’m dating an actor” and knows there will likely come a time when Zac has to make that decision as well.

    Move along folks there’s nothing to see here.

  • lol

    @aw: Have to agree with you there!

    when you’re shooting a scene like that, you’ve got to learn to adjust. At times it can get very technical, with the director telling you to move in a certain direction to get in the shot. So that does help to put some distance between you and the scene.

    @Katty: whats with the Zanessa obsession? cant people just be happy that there a pictures of them out,instead of constantly asking where the other is,when they are papped alone?

    They both have aspects of their lives that do not involve the other, people need to learn to respect that. I highly doubt that you would like to be asked every 5 seconds where your other half is?

  • lol

    @jo: In the book of a Charlie St Cloud there are a couple of sex scenes so it seems it maybe pretty soon!

  • zanessa4everr

    aww he’s so cute! i missed him

  • kim

    Hope Zac has a great time in Japan!

  • Zanessa lover

    vanessa though that photoshoot with him with that women was sexy, so zac most probably think the same and support her, but she said she not doing it yet so forget about it =D

  • zanessa/scashley/ashnessa

    Well, well, well, if it isn’t Zachary. YAY !! I missed you SOOO much Zachary !! Looks like your hair grew long again.. =S I’ve been waiting for a Zachary post so that I can say,

    Vote for Zachary for Best Male Performance and Zanessa for Best Kiss !!! :D …If Zanessa won best kiss, they would have to go up together…and maybe…you know. *wink wink* LOL. I’m talking kiss. :D ..But who knows what will happen.

  • Lyca

    you know what i think,

    i think that if zac decides to do a nude scene, people will be like oh okay, that’s his job. He’s an actor

    but if vanessa does, people will start bullsh*t.

  • zanessa•lover•2489

    Hottie (:

  • zane

    like his polo shirt! looks cute on him!

  • maria

    Love Zac’s shirt! He’s looking good!

    I don’t get the controversy either over Vanessa’s statement. It showed a mature decision-making process, and that she would THINK about it when the “time is right”. At least she’s preparing her fans for these mature and adult moves. I respect her for that.

  • heather

    seriously! if he can lay in a sandbox with a naked model on top of him, she can so whatever the hell she wants.
    also, WTF, we NEED some new zanessa pics! guess not for a while though, cause hes in japan now without her :(

  • Bradley

    Zac has a safe trip.

  • Marie

    Zac looks hot and sexy. I wounder if this is his last stop.

  • lol

    @heather: Why do we need Zanessa pics? Can’t you just be satisfied with the pics we have?

  • Karen

    There was a report that just a few days ago that Zac and Vanessa were out together doing some shopping and it came from a reliable source. Why must everyone have to have pictures of them together to believe that they are still with each other? Their lives together is not being documented and they are not doing a reality show for TV for everyone to see. Give them a break and some room to breathe like the rest of us have. When we get pictures of them they are well worth seeing. But then again like the ones where they are in Vanessa’s car together we have to hear people speculate how they do not look happy because they aren’t smiling…like they go around in a convertible with big cheesy grins on their faces ready for their close-ups. Let them live and be real.

  • pop86

    I hope Zac have a good time in Japan.

    This is a thread about Zac not “Zanessa”. As a matter of fact there is no “Zanessa”. Zac and Vanessa are to separate people who have their own lives and career. They are not joined at the hip.

  • Karen

    BTW, when they went to the Lakers game last week I wonder if they purposely chose some other seats besides the court side ones they had been getting just so the cameras could not show every little move they made. I’m sure they love having a courtside view of the game but I’m also sure the newness and excitement of that experience has all but worn off given the fact they always have to see themselves showcased the next day or that very night on various internet sites and featured in numerous magazines gossip sections.

  • amyhigh

    OMG. He is so hot and sexy. That is a good color for him. Just like the shirt he wore in Spain for the 17 Again premiere. Those were some hot pics.

    As far as V doing a n u d e scene in the future. What’s the big deal? We’ve all seen her naked already anyway. Nothing special.

    I voted for Zac for best male performance at And as much as I really do LOVE and lust after Zac, and really don’t care much for RPatt, I’m sorry, but the kiss in Twilight was much hotter than the one in HSM3.

  • Karen


    The kiss in HSM3 was pretty darn romantic and great given the fact that it was a Disney kiss and RP and KS was from a far different kind of movie. However, I do understand what you are saying although I didn’t really think the RP and KS kiss was all that fantastic given the type movie it was and all the hype that was made of it.

  • Soni Hannigan

    #26 I completely agree with you. Also #34 Karen, you are right.As much as I enjoy seeing Zac and Vanessa, they are allowed to have seperate lives.

  • dani

    til the end zac news

  • liza

    omg zac efron!!welcome home!!! love yah!! hottie!!!! :DD<33

  • yum

    he needs a haircut! but hes still so hot! :]

  • Germangirl


    just what are rp and ks kisses? sorry don’t know the slang

  • marie

    have a nice flight, zachary!
    hopefully the japan tour will be a blast :)

  • marie

    his hair long is darn sexy!

  • Marie

    I hope Japan is Zac last stop.

  • Trina


    You got it right. Their life is not a reality show and they do not live their life for the fans through paparazzi pictures. They are two very real, down to earth people.

  • Karen


    rp= Robert Pattinson

    ks= Kristin Stewart

  • mhay

    guys nothing wrong alout vanessa’s answer to the question.
    she handles it very well Go V.
