Zac Efron: Why I Chose the Role of Charlie

Zac Efron: Why I Chose the Role of Charlie

Zac Efron pats his hair down as he stops by Good Day Philly on Monday morning (July 12) to chat about his new film, Charlie St. Cloud.

Check out what the 22-year-old actor had to say about the role of Charlie: “It really struck an emotional chord with me. I have a little brother myself, he’s 17…wait, he’s 18. I keep doing that (laughs). We were best friends growing up and we’re at that place where I see him as more of a real person. I read the script and the planets just sort of aligned.”

FYI: Zac is wearing Levi’s Skinny 511 Jeans in Eco Blue Flame.

  • bush efron

    Looking good as always Zac.

    @bush efron:

    he is probably tired it is early in the morning

  • Loz

    Gorgeous Man.
    He always amazes me with how articulate and smart he sounds in interviews <3 he deserves everything he’s earned!

  • zanessa/scashley

    How can someone look so adorable yet hot at the same time !? How I love him. His hair makes me laugh though.. in a good way. So cute. All those lucky people who got to see him makes me jealous..

  • http://twitter.com/officalvstyle abby

    Props to him for getting out of LA without anyone knowing. :)

  • kami

    he is very articulate. such a nice young man and so professional.

  • http://www.youtube.com/Starzzproduction Jenny

    OMG *swoons* he has go to stop being cute… he’ll be the death of me

  • WICKED WENCH

    @Loz: I agree; moreover, I think he works very hard preparing for interviews with the press, which impresses me. On a totally unrelated note, I am certain Zac was a golden retriever puppy in a former life. I get the same sensation looking at him as I do when I see small children, stuffed animals and cute little puppies. I want to pet him and scratch his tummy.

  • http://twitter.com/officalvstyle abby

    @WICKED WENCH: I agree. Compaired to a lot of other young stars he’s got his shit together and knows how to talk to the press. He always sounds grown up but at the sametime doesn’t sound like he’s trying to make it like he knows everything.

    He’s going to go far in hollywood I can tell. Such an amazing guy. His parents really should be proud, they raised what seems like a great guy.

  • Athena

    There was a mix up of details as to which radio station he’d be on…so my106.1 will be airing it on Tuesday around 7:45am. My sister went to see if she could get into the show and didn’t get in. She and a few fans waited outside until his tv appearance was over…Zac didn’t even role down his window to give his fans an autograph…supposedly one publicist was for it and another against him signing, so they rode off and left a few 20 something people and children waiting in the warm weather….many even had posters and such to be signed…thanks Zac….I know you can’t stoo for everyone, and it’s usually the people waiting that have never had the opp to meet you.

  • Sad

    He looks okay. but i really don’t like vannesa she can’t act and sing…But he’s cute. he’s hair looks like robert pattinson’s hair.

  • http://@MAYZV4EVER MAYZV4EVER

    OMG … zac you want to make me crazy or what

    YOU ARE SO HOT even in this simple pictures.. you are perfect.. your eyes GOD.. i love you
    I CAN WAIT TO SEE YOU MOVIE LOVE YOU

  • http://twitter.com/officalvstyle abby

    @Athena: Aww thats sad. I’m sorry to hear that. :( Sounds like he wanted to sign but his people wouldn’t let him. Its like that with a lot of celebs. The celeb wants to sign and take pics but the publicist have to get them to the next event, interview, ect.

  • http://@MAYZV4EVER MAYZV4EVER

    @Sad:

    DUH,,, zac is more hotter than robbert pattinson and if you dont like .well dont put comments

  • http://@MAYZV4EVER MAYZV4EVER

    @Athena: Oh that sad but im sure you are going to met him other day :D

  • lauren

    when she mentions vanessa, he smiles a little bit.
    hmm cuteish.

  • gaby

  • http://twitter.com/mikeh266 mike

  • zanessaloverss123

    he is soooo cute haha with the comment of the twitter thing lol

  • Katty

    @Athena:

    Zac doesn’t control everything he does, you have to remember that. I’m sorry that happened, though.

    Zac looks realllly gooood in all of these appearanced. He did more interviews than this one, there are two more at zefron.com

    Also, Zac finally named his production company, it’s Ninjas Runnin’ Wild Prod. also known as NRW. And, he has signed onto a new workplace comedy to star in an produce. Plus, that thriller he was involved in a few years ago is still going strong as the script continues be written and such. A lot of the info is at zefron.com

  • Danni

    he’s adorableee. :O)

  • pop86

    @Athena: not to make an excuse, but during a promotional tour a celebrity must follow the agree upon time schedule. Zac had other interviews scheduled during his short time in Philly. It sounds like his publicist was trying to keep him on schedule.

    BTW: He looks so adorable and hot( had to get that out.lol)

  • iLubyou

    I just love him XD!

  • beatriz

    gosh Zac is HOT <3

  • Yolanda

    WOW he rubs his neck, ears and hair A LOT when answering questions!!!!!!! That is the sign of a LIAR!!!!!!

  • amy

    @Yolanda: No thats what he does when hes nervous. What exactly is he lying about? Enlighten me.

    I love promo time, so many new interviews. Can’t wait for CSC.

  • Eric Shinn

    @amy: Yolanda is so right! Zac is lying about his sexuality – his “brother” Dylan is actually his BF – they are not related at all!

  • lauren

    wow.
    really?
    you guys are going to start crap on here and those weird zac efron fans are going to give you shit, just saying.

  • Unbelievable

    @Eric
    Wow, you are one sick puppy. You need to get professional help right now, don’t wait go now cause you have some serious issues.

    @soccergurl22:

    o: when the person asked zac if he brought anyone “specific” (vanessa) along with him in philly, but he didnt. but his going back to LA and he said he might bring that “specific” person (vanessa) with him. :D

  • soccergurl22
