InStyle has published an article about Zac on their website, in which they talk about his impeccable manners during his latest interview for the magazine. Read it below:
When we sent our intrepid writer Mary H.K. Choi to interview the lovely Zac Efron at L.A.’s Chateau Marmont for the February issue of InStyle (on newsstands now), she knew he’d be a nice guy, but she had no idea how nice. “Yep, it’s true. He’s a gentleman,” she says. “He stood up when I arrived and was clearly slightly early because I was right on time. He offered to share his roasted artichoke and when I said it didn’t qualify as sharing food, he countered with ‘they’re just like nachos.’ At the end of the meal he lunged for the check and insisted on paying, saying it was ‘customary.’” Zac’s take on all this? “It’s just the way I am, the way I was raised,” he says.
He also offered up these polite bites to satiate your appetite for good, old-fashioned etiquette:
Respect your elders.
“This one’s important. You always have something to learn from people who have been through more than you. Be open and receptive to what they know.”
If you meet a girl’s parents, treat them like they’re normal people.
“Ask questions. Be engaged. Put yourself in their shoes. If I had a daughter and some guy came home with her, I’d be on him like a hawk. When I meet people’s parents I know my place. It’s not that hard. Just be sensitive.”
Get your face out of your phone.
“Please. Be in the moment and be present. I feel disconnected like I don’t know where I am if I’m on my phone too much. I’m also just the type to call. I’m not good on text.”
“I do my best with this one. It’s part of being decent and respectful but I’m not in control of the schedule most of the time.”
Finally, don’t be that guy.
“If there’s a party and they won’t let me friends in. I’d leave. No question. Who wouldn’t leave. I wouldn’t want to go to that party. That’s a lame party.”
Zac has announced via Twitter that he’ll be answering fans’ questions along with « That Awkward Moment » co-stars Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller this monday. Make sure you send him yours!

Several brand new outtakes of Zac Efron from a photoshoot taken for the Flaunt magazine have been added to the gallery. Enjoy viewing them!
Zac Efron just gave us another reason to like him. The « 17 Again » cutie refuses to turn his back on his star-maker, « High School Musical. » In fact, he’s even defending the undeniable fluff flicks.
« Here’s the one thing about ‘High School Musical’ that a lot of people forget or don’t realize, » he told Flaunt magazine. « It affected a lot of people, its resonance, culturally, was massive… and at the same time, it was in every sense of it, the luckiest break in the world. The wrong thing to do – and that’s what all these interviews now are trying to get me to say – is to turn on it, to like s**t on it, call it crap. But that’s insane. There are hundreds of people who began doing one thing when they were younger, who go on to develop and refine and shape their vision, as they get older, and other concerns – like fame, or money – take a back seat to other ones.”
The 25-year-old actor, who will next be spotted in « At Any Price, » in theaters in limited release on April 24, also confessed that he refuses to complain about getting attention from fans, paparazzi, or otherwise.
« If I’m talking to my friends, or somebody important who can have some influence on or affect the situation, that’s one thing, but to b***h about attention while getting attention? I’d be doing it to the very people whose job it is to get that information – who are watching me and have control over that information, » he explained. « Therefore, it makes them upset, they read it like it’s hypocritical, and so they spread some bulls**t. »
Still, he admitted that he tries to avoid being tweeted about and photographed, and he isn’t entirely truthful or himself when he gives an interview.
« I wish I could sit here and be completely honest – but I guess that’s an even bigger responsibility – and it’d take a more courageous man, » he said. [Source]
