    zac ,you are doing really well, i’m proud of you. i know acting is hard work, but it will pay off. i just wished vanessa would take her acting more seriosly, she is only hurting herself.

  • amelia25

    Beautiful Zac!

  • OK

    @amelia25 You have to be one of the sweetest Zac fans around.

  • Mari

    Challenging! But Zac is a great actor, he can do it.

  • Liberty

    @barbara: 1) How is Vanessa Hudgens choosing to live HER life hurting her? Just because she is not constantly on a movie set? She has three movies out next year and will be heavily promoting them. Just because she is choosing to spend time with her friends,family and BF does not mean she is hurting her career.

    2) I think this movie will do very well because of the timing of it. But from what I have read it seems a very generic plot. There have been many movies done about the assassination. Zac is certainly well advised on the movies he picks, each movie shows off his acting skills differently which is what he needs to do.

    lol ,liberty , wasn’t it what you said last year too ? ”she has 4 movie coming out next year and she’ll be busy with promotion ” alas ! only one movie came out ! i hope what you said comes true at least next year .lol living your own life isn’t what’s hurting her career ,it’s this absurd famewhoring that makes her look like a joke .famewhoring is famewhoring .it;s not excusable whichever way you do ! and it’s gonna hurt your career !

  • LOL

    I can’t wait for sexy dr.efron ;)

  • Liberty

    @BO: I am going off the schedules on various sites. Fame whoring however unpleasant is needed. It keeps them in the public eye.Vanessa,Zac and their contemporaries are at a time in the career where they need to be seen. They also have a fanbases who don’t understand the concept of long lenses or how the press works. They need a public image and they are all living their lives. The problem is people moan when they don’t see pics of them and then moan when there is a constant stream. I feel sorry for them as they cannot win. They are always going to be who are not happy with them and the way they live their lives.

  • Sam

    another movie Zac will wreck. great.

  • insider

    @Deb: you mean who is the lucky guy. I don’t think he is with Carlos anymore

  • LMFAo

    @Mari: I really don’t think it is challenging to play a doctor. he would be better as JFK. He would just have to play dead.

  • OK

    @insider Do your homework ! You have the wrong celebrity with Carlos

    Zac can’t wait to see you in this one.
