Zac Efron gets blinded by the flash of a camera as he arrives at LAX airport in Los Angeles on Tuesday night (July 27).
The 22-year-old Charlie St. Cloud actor chatted with Movieline about his upcoming projects, his friendship with director Burr Steers and making the cover of People shirtless. Check it:
On reading along with Burr: “I read this Meisner book [he] gave me after 17 Again that just sat on my coffee table forever, with this picture of an old-looking dude with gray hair and glasses on the cover. [Laughs] Itâ€™s a hard one to turn the first page, but I just sat and down and committed that I was going to read it all, and then I couldnâ€™t put it down as soon as I started it. I read the whole thing in about three days. Itâ€™s just fascinating, and itâ€™s all those little things that I wouldnâ€™t have gotten into if it werenâ€™t for Burr.”
On his upcoming thriller Snabba Cash: “I see a way into that character that I could believe myself in, and thatâ€™s few and far between these days. I read scripts, and people tell me, ‘Matt Damon was going to do this project.’ And Iâ€™m like, ‘Of course Matt Damon was going to do that project, itâ€™s f**kinâ€™ crazy! I canâ€™t do that.’”
On shirtless photos making the cover of People: “It was like, what am I going to do: go to Hawaii and not go to the beach and say for the rest of my life that I didnâ€™t do it because [the paparazzi] were there, or am I just going to brave it, go out, and let all that happen?…Itâ€™s not the worst thing in the world. And you know, aside from that, I had this amazing trip with my brother.”
