Zac Efron: Courtside at Staples Center

Zac Efron: Courtside at Staples Center

Zac Efron watches the L.A. Lakers take on the Denver Nuggets at Staples Center on Tuesday (May 1) in Los Angeles.

The 24-year-old actor sat courtside near Ashton Kutcher for Game 2 of the NBA Playoff series, which the Lakers won 104-100.

Zac recently uploaded a new video on WhoSay, where you get to see his hair disappear from his head for The Lucky One.

“Hey guys thank you for the video message. My heart is warm :)” he wrote on Twitter to his fans after they sent him a video. How sweet!

  • Ok

    Hi Zac hope you enjoyed he game, you sure do look good. Right Robin?

  • http://Sue Sue

    @Ok: Who is Robin.

  • tina

    Well this is just too much. I usually defend Zac (I’m the other Tina) but this is getting to look more and more that it’s true. If it is then I will give it to the Haters that he did cheat back in 2010 while making this film and they reconnected during these promos. Well I hope they are happy but Karma is a b****cheaters never change, they so it once they will do it again. He might be a nice guy but it sounds like he is a horrible boyfriend.

    @Ok I read your comments on the other post and ordinarily I would agree with you but there is just too many interviews, the body language, the way she lives in New York but is now here is LA.
    He says he will keep his dating life a secret so now only time will tell the person will be revealed sooner or later. what is the saying cheaters never prosper well in this case they are wrong I see him as very prosperous but at what cost?

  • http://Sue Sue

    @tina: Please just stop

  • steph h

    The thing is Vs team was the first to say tht there was no cheating involved so obv. he didn’t and plus she still lights up when talking about him and he looks the same way when talking about her and plus why would V day they are still really good friends if he cheated..she could have said he cheated cuz I’m sure tht could be payback..dont believe what Hollywood life writes cuz its usually trash unless its from zacs mouth and Taylor is prob. in LA because she’s working on a new movie and if she moved to LA its prob because she wants to be closer to auditions.

  • lauren

    @tina
    shut the hell up/
    and just go away/

  • Ok

    @Tina If I think Zac is wrong I will say so. I’m not going to take the word of two rags that are wrong all the time Not just with Zac but everybody. This is an example where I think his PR team has done him wrong. This is also where I say he just needs to act more grown up. So what if Taylor Shilling is in L.A. maybe she is here for auditions.
    I have seen pics of Zac out to lunch ,at a basketball game. answering his fans ,even up north honoring his teacher. I haven’t seen her with him once. I think his back stabbing friends are behind this. They are petty and jealous. I try not to mean but I wonder are you sure you are not the other tina? Have I see you with this on some other post?

  • londonlipton

    @Ok: 1) His back-stabbing friends? You do not know Zac nor his friends personally,therefore cannot make an informed opinion on what they are like.
    2)How has his PR team wronged him? He will have agreed to whatever it is before,it was implemented. PR is an integral part of Hollywood, PR bods,studio execs and Actors will say whatever they need to promote a movie and make it a success

    Anyone who readily believes anything an actor says or a media outlet prints during a promo tour I feel sorry for.

  • Ok

    @londonlipton if you have been reading everthing I never said I knew him or his friends. Last year some of these so called “friends” “Ninjas” were saying he was doing all sorts of things at parties and such. that is no secret. This was last year everybody knew who they meant when they said “The Head Ninja” is here ,or he is in the bedroom with …. Zac did not have Twitter then. In my book that is a back stabber. these are the same stories making the rounds again.
    I said in my opinion I think his PR team is doing him harm , by not letting him be himself. In my opinion I think Ashley Tisdale’s birthday was a PR nightmare. I believe Gina handles both. Who called the reporters?You basically said the same thing when you said you shouldn’t believe what an actor says during a promo tour. I used to believe the things Zac said. I’m not smart about things like this, but I can tell when a “Friend” is using others for their own gain. this “best” friend uses everyone. he will horn into every pic he can. I don’t mean just Zac’s.

  • amelia25

    Beautiful Zac!

  • http://google barbara

    I agree with you OK, i read want hollwood life said, they said that zac braged about hooking up with taylor, that alone would tell it is a lie, zac never tells want he is doing,believes keeping his life priavate. they say they were sources,i’m sure RR, is one of them,
    , he has always been jealous, of zac, including his realationship with vanessa.i’ve notice he has not been hanginging around, him, at lease a month, or a little longer, i hope he doesn’t run around his ninjas, so call friends. hollywood, life always make up stories.

  • Whatever

    So, isn’t it rich, that last year, his “ninja friends” were all fabulous and great for Zac to hang with, even though us non-fans said they were trouble? Interesting change of opinion here……

  • http://facebook.com/MattieBarber mattie

    @Whatever: it doesn’t matter who said they bad news, all that matters is we all agree that they bad news and Zac needs to dump them.

  • http://facebook.com/MattieBarber mattie

    Sorry I meant who said they were bad news first. We all agree that they are and hopefully Zac dumps them.

  • Ok

    @whatever I haven’t like these “friends” for over a year. Zac is a big boy and he does what he wants when it comes to them. I think I see a change , but Lord knows like a bad penny they keep showing up. I only have Zac to blame for that. I don’t know him or his reasons. I don’t even know if he knows for sure they are stabbing him in the back.
    I only said what I heard and know happened.

  • tree

    It surprises me that Zac hadn’t seen what these “friends” were all about sooner, it seems to have taken him over a year to figure out they are bad news. That is if he has figured that out. Something tells me that his PR team likes these friends because they bring publicity, whether its good or bad. I would have thought Zac would have been smarter than that and realized a long time ago.

  • Ok

    @tree This is my opinion and nothing more, from what I understand Zac may do some PR with a friend or someone at the same agency(Lily Collins) and only to a certain extent on that. But they would not control who his friends are. Even his PR people can’t like talk of sex parties , drugs and I won’t even tell you what I’m hearing now.
    I think it must be hard to find out your friends are selling you down the river. My fear is he still dosn’t even know it, or want to believe it.

  • sTILL TALKING ABOUT HIM?

    @Ok: Indulge us. What exactly are you hearing? Haven’t we heard all the rumors…drugs, sex parties, he’s gay and sleeping with one of his friends, he’s a womanizer, sex addict, a misogynist, blah, blah blah. If his ninja friends are leaking stuff to the tabloids to stab him in the back and ruin him, it should only take one phone call from someone in his camp i.e. publicist’s office or CAA to weed them out an shut them down. Do you think it wouldn’t take much to get someone like RR blackballed and relegated to Nickolodeon for the duration of his career? I don’t see what all the drama is about…drop the friends, have someone make some calls and get on with it.

  • http://google barbara

    I am glad he went to see his lakers, he loves all kinds of sports, vanessa use too, but her bf, seems to only like baseball, ny ,she said in a interview, she isn’t following sports lately, she was the biggest laker fan, except for zac.

  • londonlipton

    @Ok: You misunderstood my point with the Ninja’s. The Ninja’s are a collective of people. And what I meant was you reference was to the Ninja’s as whole, some of the Ninja’s are sound ,reliable friends, you cannot judge the Ninja’s based on the actions of one individual from the group. It’s like a friend in your circle of friends stealing,and people assuming because they do it that everyone in the group will do the same? You see my point, the act of ONE Ninja does not mean you condemn the whole group of them.

    It is consistently one Ninja who does the selling, and if Zac and the rest of the guys are happy to have them around, I do not see why the fans have to constantly judge his friends. Who Zac surrounds himself with is NO fans business. What Zac does on a Sunday morning is no-ones business. Fans have long ago overstepped the line on what they should and should not comment about when it comes to Zac’s life.

  • Ok

    @londonlipton Well I only know what others had shown me on tweets also the stories I have heard. I wont blame them all , but I can assure you it is more than one of what is known as the main Ninjas.
    back then I heard they were ‘scolded” but I don’t know that for sure. They did not use that term for awhile. Never congradulated him on anything, after CSC. If fans hadn’t been asking them questions on why they never mentioned The Lucky One, I doubt they would of.They Even trashed his pool area when he was away.That was more than one. Now the word Ninja is popping up again, and so are those stories. I know I’m not the only one who saw these tweets or heard these stories. You are right that is Zac’s business who he wants to see. I just hope he knows the truth , whether I’m right or wrong. I know I’m right about the one who uses everybody to his advantage. all you have to do is pic up fan mags.

  • londonlipton

    @Ok:
    The Pool story was picked up by a trashy site,which has no credibility and was denied by his own publicist when she was contacted regarding the story.

    I have heard many stories, just because I have heard a story does not make it a fact.

    If Zac was at all bothered by the influence the Ninja’s have on him then I highly doubt he would have named his production company Ninja’s Runnin Wild.

    Everyone knows the ONE Ninja you are referring to, but it just irks me that people are now using the term Ninja to disparage Zac’s friends or his judgement in people.

    For fans to do this it shows very clearly that if you do not like Zac’s friends and do not believe he knows exactly what his friend (s) are like then you are questioning his judgement, judgement which leads him to pick projects. See where I am going with this?

    Also Zac has many friends fans do not know about, it’s just that he is seen out with the Ninja’s a lot more.

    You have said all you have to do is pick up fan mags- I refer to the point I made in my earlier post about believing everything that is written.

  • Tree

    Does anyone know who and how many main. “Ninja’s” there are or were? The only names or initials I have heard are RR, Greg G, Alix. Am I wrong? These names came from an article about the night at the Pink Taco back in Feb. 2011

  • Ok

    @ londonlipton I want to get one yhing clear in my mind you say his publicist denied the story right? then you say don’t believe PR right?isn’i his PR from his publicisit? I’m joking with you here I know what you mean . I heard the rumors of that long before I ever saw the story. I even say don’t believe everything you read.
    Did he have the name Ninjas or did they call themselve that first? I always heard the name was for him and his brother. If I’m wrong I would apologize to them , but I don’t think I am. Like you said before that is up to Zac to decide. . BTW tell your friends I’m a pussycat , not violent at all I don’t need to be punched. I’m not saying anything worse about the Ninjas , than what they say about Austin. Give the guy a break, I believe Vanessa truly loves him. That is her choice. I think she is doing O.K. I worry about Zac.

  • merlin’s mum

    @tina: Sod off!!! :)

  • Tree

    @OK – I can see why you would be worried about Zac and feel Vanessa is ok. I agree, from everyone’s posts over the past week or so from people who know him or know others who know about him, I also feel she is content or ok but that he is not. Just my opinion from what I believe people who have said.

  • Ok

    @tree unlike what some people think , I’m not trying to cause trouble.
    I need to change what I said. I think Zac is O.K..in his life right now , I just worry about his friends. Even though it is none of my business I really like him.

  • tree

    @OK – I understand what you meant and I agree with you about his friends, he really needs to take a good long look.

  • Karen

    @Ok I heard that Zac break up with Vanessanever knew what happened to them they made a cute cople, so Zac break up with her?

    Now that Vanessa is with Austin, Zac is jealous?

  • tree

    I have a question for anyone who knows. In the video of Ryan Rottman being pulled over for DUI there is a girl in the back seat of the SUV. She is later seen with a guy coming over to Zac down the street. Zac holds her hand and then kisses it. Does anyone know who this girl is? I thought it looked like Phoebe Tonkin but she is 5’10″ and I don’t think this girl is that tall.

  • Ok

    @Karen I don’t want to give the impression I know them or exactly what happened. I pieced together things I read and things I was told by friends who say they know them or met them(I don’t know if that is true or B.S. from them) Where I live it certainly is possible. I heard Vannesa wanted more out of the relationship a ring or something. Zac was not ready for this. The friends didn’t like Vanessa and was telling her lies about Zac. They couldn’t come to terms so just called it quits, there was no cheating on anybody’s part.
    The other story I really don’t belive that one , so I wont go into it. (No cheating involved). I don’t think Zac is jealous of Austin. There is no reason to be.

  • Ok

    @tree This is what I heard , if someone else says different I will not argue, this is just from friends and seeing the video (not for a long time) the guy was Zac’s friend Crawford Wilson, that was his date. He and others wanted to go party more. Zac just wanted to get out of there and go to sleep. Rumer drove him to a friends place who lived in the area.(He didn’t want Rumer driving narrow roads up a winding hill. (The police could of stopped them or worse). You can even see Zac and Crawford had a heated exchange about it. Zac kissed the girls hand goodnight , he is flirty (That night was the first time they met) .
    Tree please understand I don’t know if this is true or not , that is just what I heard. If anybody else knows for sure what happened or who she is, I hope they tell you.

  • tree

    @OK Thanks for your explanation. The conversation however does not look heated. This Crawford person looks like he is explaining what happened back at Ryan Rottmans SUV. Zac holds onto the girls hand for longer than a nice to meet you scenario and then he kisses it. Nothing in their actions makes you feel like they just met. I could be wrong though, that is just my observation.

  • tc

    @tree: I think it’s very safe to say that he has been seeing different women since the split with his ex. He took on the playing the field and sewing his wild oats literally. It was expected since he had been tied down to only one in a long tern relationship. I think he has inferred that he is indeed being taken care of in the sex dept. I feel the same about that girl in the video . It was like she was his date and he was apologizing since it was a date done wrong , she drove Ryan’s car home and they probably met up later. Doesn’t matter he’s a free agent to date one or a million girls . It ‘s hypocritical behavior from the way he spoke when he was with his ex but people change and when he went to make the Lucky One he himself admitted that the experience changed him. He grew up and realized his past life was something he no longer wanted. People were indeed hurt but in the long run he did them a favor.

  • Ok

    @tee@tc I did hear that also, in fact that is what I thought at first. . I went back and checked the computer and it does look at on point they were a bit animated to me. My friends convinced me it was crawford’s date here is how. If she were Zac’s date why was she in the car with Crawford at first and not with Zac and Rumer. then when you read the accounts of what happened that night . a patron or or bartender or someone said, they thought Rumrer was Zac’s date he seemed with her that night. I have no doubt in my mind that Zac is getting sex somewhere.

  • Ok

    @tree @tc I’m not saying you are wrong, I’m just saying this is what I heard.

  • wHATEVRR

    Okay…. here’s what I believe….
    Everyone needs to shut the %#@! UP! This is not your life to judge! It’s Zac and Vanessa’s! I love Zanessa just as much as the next person, but my god, hating one of them for the break up is just plain ridiculous because you have NO CLUE what so ever, of what happened! Maybe he cheated, maybe he didn’t! You cannot judge these two because of the things the media feeds us. It’s plain stupid.
    Vanessa is on a downward spiral with Austin. That is obvious…. Zac is a complete manwhore…. Duh. They are both a wreck without each other, that is obvious as well. Their eyes would light up talking about each other. When they were together, it was like they were the only ones in the room. One thing we know for sure is that they loved each other for the time being.
    Though I believe that one day, maybe not tomorrow, or next week, or next month or even next year, they will get back together, but one day. But for the love of god can you people please stop bickering like whiny little children? It’s completely unnecessary and it’s not your life! All we are here for is to cheer them on when together, not to basically hate them until we force them back together… Despise them for the mistakes they may have made to a completely different person.
    None of you know Zac or Vanessa, so get the hell over it all, shut the bloody hell up, and get a damn life.

  • Ok

    @wHATEVRR Sorry if I hit a nerve I’m not bickering. what is obvious to you isn’t to me. I don’t believe for one momemt Zac is a manwhore that is what I have trying to say here. His friends started those Rumors.
    Vanessa doesn’t look like she is on a downward spiral to me. she looks rather happy to me. Happier then i’ve seen her in a long time and more power to her. You have a right to your opinion , I have a right to mine. Zac and Vanessa were a cute couple , like you said we don’t know what happened. All I said was I heard there was no cheating by either one of them. They are over, will they get back together one day?
    Maybe but I wouldn’t hope for anything more than friends.

  • tree

    @OK – You said if she were Zacs date she would have been in his car. It has been said that Zac would have his dates pretend to be with one of the other guys as to hide the fact that they are together. Just a thought.
    @wHATEVER No one is bashing Z & V, this is a civil conversation of questions and opinions. I think Vanessa is happy with Austin and Zac, I believe wanted his freedom, and he is happy.
    I’m still not sure why they would want to become friends in the future but time will tell.

  • Ok

    @tree That is a real good one I wont lie to you , I heard that too, long before I ever saw it in print on one of these posts. (seen that on two different sites) That goes more with the other rumor.
    That certainly is a possible , but I heard that late last year. long after Ryan being arrested fur DUI.

  • Ok

    @tree sorry that should read long after Ryan was arrested for DUI

  • lauren

    um why are people talking about somthing that happen last summer? really? not to be rude, but who cares who was he with? no one knows who the girl was ? why are you talking about it now? really? and for the 43958 time im so over hearing about the cheating,open relationship and every other rumor on what happen, again people just like to make stuff up because they dont know what to do with there own lives and they are lost, from zac’s interviews lately he seems like he just wants to focus on work and doesnt really seem to have the time for a relationship or whatever,

  • Ok

    @Lauren I’m not arguing here, I just said what I heard when a question was asked. If you don’t want to know , don’t read it. I even said I could be wrong. I think Zac got a raw deal here . some people even blamed him for what Ryan did. I would like you to show me whare I said Zac or anyone cheated. I said I herad there was no cheating by anyone. How much nicer can I be ?
    Also I know you know the other Rumor , but please don’t say anything like you always do. He doesn’t need that now.

  • lame

    @Ok: What is the other rumor? Sure it’s not anything that has been tossed around and speculated about before….just like all the other rumors. People who know don’t talk and people who talk tend not to know…I mean really know.

  • lauren

    @lame
    its basically what you been hearing for the past year,….

    @ok
    basically i hear the ”cheating” rumors on E, ted cacablanca’s page and his bull on zac, people on justjared and basically people who think they know zac buy his interviews lately and how they know what he did?

  • Ok

    @lame That is a rumor I don’t like , so i just wont repeat it . I don’t think it is true.
    @lauren I read the same things . I don’t believe it . That is why I keep saying I heard nobody cheated. And his PR people are hurting more than helping.Ted even said once this person’s friends were telling secrets on him.

  • lauren

    @ok
    do you ever read ted c’s ”blind vices” on zac/”jackie” and how apparent ”jackie” has a ”boyfriend” for almost a year” im pretty sure zac is straight.

  • lauren

    @ok
    also what were your thoughts on zac and lily ”relationship”/pr thing/whatever that was,
    i thought that whole thing was ridiculous and stupid.

  • Tree

    @lauren I believe from prior posts from people that the whole Lily thing was PR. To restate what @OK said, we are not saying anyone cheated, we are just asking questions and giving opinions. It’s been very civilized.

  • Ok

    @lauren Why did you even go there? I did not want to talk about those rumors . I think he is straight. my friends and I read all the blinds there and others, some believe it. But in this town they say that about all goodlooking actors. I hear this is talk from the same group of friends.One of these friends even admitted he was Bi. (The friend not Zac). I believe it is just a close friendship , with someone we don’t know that much about ,thats why they think this. the others are jealous.I really don’t want to say anymore than that.
    Lily I hear was a PR from the very beginning , he was helping someone and was getting blinds about it.. this all good for her but bad for him. That is why I say his PR team is doing him wrong.
    I want to make this clear I think he is straight. Never thought otherwise.
