Zac Efron: More Than A Jeans & T-Shirt Kind of Guy

Zac Efron: More Than A Jeans & T-Shirt Kind of Guy

Zac Efron hobbles on one foot in this new spread from the August 2010 of InStyle magazine.

The 22-year-old actor opened up on never looking sloppy, how his life parallels Jurassic Park and his relationship with Vanessa Hudgens. Check it:

On his fashion sense: “It’s a form of self-expression. Your clothes are the middle ground between who you are and what you want to show people. I never like to look sloppy, because as somebody in the public eye, I believe i owe it to fans to be presentable when I go out.”

On his five-year relationship with Vanessa: “It has helped me through quite a bit. There are myriad distractions to fall into in this business. To have someone to share with and to relate to is a very valuable gift.”

On his fans’ dedication: “I’m so appreciative of those fans’ dedication. That said, it can be quite funny when it’s actually happening. Once, in France, during a HSM promotion, people rocked the car so ard that it went over onto two wheels. I was inside with Vanessa and Ashley [Tisdale], sliding back and forth like we were Jell-O, and we were dying laughing. It was like a scene in Jurassic Park where T. rexes flip over cars.”

Zac‘s new flick, Charlie St. Cloud, debuts Friday, July 30th.

    zanessa forever, they rock and soo cute <3
    &&& i love zashnessa<3 my favorite trio EVER!

  • Katty

    The whole article is on

    Zac looks so good, and i love how down to earth he is. It shows what kind of real person he is. I like what he says about V too, I love that they have an adult relationship, and it’s good they try to keep it as private as they can, because that is better for them. I think comments like this though, show that while they’re private, they’re commited to each other completely and grow with eachother. It’s beautiful.

    I can’t wait for Charlie St. Cloud. I am already planning things with my friends! I will definitely be crying during the ending!

  • sunny

    Aww, it is about time we see some sort of acknowledgement from Zac regarding Vanessa. I for one am glad to see there are finally some in the media who ask HIM about Her as well. Well, actually, they didn’t – he brought her up, so 1,000 extra boyriend points for you Efron. V’s a keeper, treat her right.

  • jenny

    He looks good! They’ve been together longer than many of those Hollywood married couples!!

  • jess!

    i love how always he brings vanessa in his interviews

  • kalairoswell

    love love love

  • abby

    He is two cute for words. Again one of the few young stars in hollywood I can picture still being ontop of his game 10 years from now. He’s not going anywhere. He seems like a really likable guy and I think thats why he’s gotten to where he is now.

    The fact that they have been together for 5 years AND are young really shows how grown up they are. Props to them. <3




  • poppy


    How would you know that he brought it up?

  • cmeesmile

    I do like a man with a sense of style, preferably Zac Efron’s. He and Vanessa seem like a perfect match, hopefully it’ll last.


    zachy i love you so so much

  • kami

    ♥ a nice interview. ♥

  • kami


    read the interview and you will see that zac was the one who first mentioned vanessa’s name in the interview.

  • poppy


    Since you weren’t there you can’t ass u me anything.

  • peggy


    Becaus if you bother to read the full artilce poppy – he brings V up first that’s how she knows

  • Tiptoes
  • kyle

    I truly appreciate Zac’s appreciation of Vanessa and her contribution to their relationship. I can really see their relationship will remain strong even years from now.

  • Bradley Bobst

    Zac looks handsome and sexy in those can’t to see CSC.

  • winona


    He didn’t. It says if you read carefully … on his relationship…

    Weird how people read into things. You guys are the ones who start stories. Read again.

    I think most of us read what’s on the page and don’t read into things.

  • carly


    I totally agree, I love them together.
    Zac and vanessa you are my inspiration =D

  • jojo

    I always thought that he had a good sense of style. I love a man that’s well dressed. Although, I love it more when he wears his sneakers. Especially his Vans.. but that’s just me. He’d look good in anything. His “I’m cool” “get out of bed look” but still look put together literally makes me drool. I love his hair! Put a man like this in front of me and I’d jump him like a mad woman. Oh, Zachary, such thoughts you have plastered in my head. He mentioned he wanted to go back to school and in a year I will be in college so hopefully he might be a fellow student with me. maybe he will let me borrow some notes? Hahaha. I wish. Well, I’m definitely going to go see CSC on Friday. I can’t wait!! Ahhhh.

  • peggy


    read the entire article he brings up vanessa. Weird how people don’t read the entire article and just assume JJ posted it all.

    GO READ!!!! The link is above

  • fan

    The interviewer asked does he only hang around with actors only? Zac replied that he does hang out with Vanessa and that they are very close and tight. And Vanessa is an actress…so the answer is yes. After that question is the interviewer asked about his 5 years relationship with Vanessa. Therefore, Zac did mentioned Vanessa’s name first.

  • Samantha

    I sincerely admire Zac and Vanessa’s relationship. They have been together for such a long time and have supported one another in spite of obstacles. It’s impressive how mature and comfortable they are about their relationship, which only shows its strength and tenacity.

    sigh, I hope they stay together :) Seriously, their relationship is probably one of the few that manage to survive Hollywood…

  • WeLOVEAshley

    Funny ;) about the Car thing lol

  • kami


    read the interview from the magazine scan. not the excerpt posted above. the person says to zac

    you and vanessa have been together for five years. any advice for hollywood relationship?“. and zac’s advice is “get into one–it has helped me quiet a bit. there are myriad distractions to fall into in this business. to have someone to share with and to relate to is a very valuable gift.”

    since the interviewer asked zac that question based on his 5 yr relation ship with vanessa zac answered that question based on his 5 yr relationship with vanessa. i don’t get what anyone is reading into that.

  • kami

    ♥and yes zac did mention vanessa’s name first after the person asked zac “who do you hang out with? mainly actors?” zac’s answers was “well, me and vanessa are pretty tight. and she’s an actress, so…yeah.” ♥

  • Diamond

    Kami get over urself!! I love Vanessa seems ads If she had a good boyfriend :)

  • iLubyou

    omg!! his so sweet!! vanessa is soooo lucky XDD!!!

  • zanessa/scashley

    One thing I love about Zanessa is that they are always careful of what they say when doing an interview, they only talk about their relationship for a little bit and then move on. Sloppy or not, Zachary is always looking fine. I can’t wait to see his movie !! =D

  • mykamicks

    Really appreciate Zac, he’s been totally sincere & honest with that interview. And you can truly feel how he’s too proud of his relationship with Vanessa for the past five years.

  • londonlemming

    Unless we hear the record of the interview(All journalists are meant to record interviews for playback so they don’t write it up wrong) we are never going to know who brought V up first. For all we know the question about the relationship COULD have been asked BEFORE the question about hanging out with actors,so he had V on the brain therefore said her name as it was the one that popped in to his head.

    The truth is we don’t know and will probably never know,so why waste your time arguing about it?

  • beatriz

    hahhaa is very funny the car
    OMZ! i want look Charlie St Cloud
    i love you ZAC EFRON you are the best <3

  • mike

    Zac is a really cool guy and he seem nice to

  • kate1

    Zac looks great

    what’s up with all the DRAMA concerning the interview. Zac mentioned vanessa and thats all we need to know

  • pop86

    He’s the best. H’e funny and down to earth. love him

  • pop86

    Some of you people really need to grow up. It doesn’t matter if the interviewer asked Zac about Vanessa or if he mentions her first. This “who said whose name first” that so many fans play is childish. People in relationship don’t behavior that way unless they are in emotional immature.

    The bottomline is: It is THEIR relationship. You are not involved in whether you are a support or hater. You whether you post on JJJ or any other blogs, forms or whatever so stop worrying about Zac and Vanessa. They are doing fine without your assistance.

  • Nicole

    OMG! I L-O-V-E him!! he’s so hot!!! <3

  • lauren

    @ pop86
    thank you for saying this,

    ive been saying this for the past year.

    they are very private people and they dont want cameras all over there lives and have a million questions ask bout there relationship, its nice to hear from them about there relationship and all that.

  • Daniela

    He is the best!!!!!!!!!!


    Hey Jared, now that Zac is 22, can you post updates to “the big people’s board” so that people over the age of 15 can appreciate him as well?

  • m

    lol they flipped over the car

  • Karen

    poppy & winona:

    Before you make demeaning comments about what people said maybe it wold be good if you checked to see why they made the comments. You two are the ones that didn’t bother to read the whole interview. Do you really think those few things that JJJ posted was the ENTIRE interview? Instead of reading just hit and miss be sure to read the whole content because taking just bits and pieces is HOW rumors start.

  • claudette

    Love Zac Efron. He reminds me of my 23 year old grandson. I am almost 66 years old and I think Zac is the best actor, nice person & handsome as well. claudette

  • jess!

    Zac and Vanessa are both TOP CELEBS here in JJJ and in JJ toooo

  • lauren

    can someone explaine to me what zac means,

    his relationship with nessa is like a valuable gift?

  • Danni

    Zac is so sweet.

  • nikki


  • lovelygirl97

    Too cute, i will definitely have to agree with some of the comments posted before. Zac Efron is a confident man. He looks like he knows what he’s doing and from what i can tell (im obsessed with him) he knows what he wants and where he wants to go. He will stay here for a long time.
    Vanessa and Zac have grown together. I think that their relationship will last, I think that that relationship has made them stronger as human beings. It has kept them very grounded and reminded them to not let fame get to their heads.
    And lastly, he is TOO HOT! VERY VERY HOT
