Zac Efron showed his support for girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens during her final performance in hit musical “Rent” on Sunday by cheekily tipping her $20 during a sexy striptease. The actress starred as 19-year-old Mimi, a troubled HIV-positive stripper, in the three-day Hollywood Bowl production.
But audience members got an unexpected surprise on Sunday when Efron stood up from his front row seat to hand his belle a reward for her hard work during one raunchy dance routine for the song Out Tonight.
Fans’ video footage posted online shows Hudgens reaching out to grab the cash before stuffing it in her bra, reports PopEater.com. [Source]
There are few things I love more than a good profile story, and fortunately Details magazine provides quite a few to meet my quota. The most recent to come under their dissecting eye is “Charlie St. Cloud” star Zac Efron, who was unfortunately suffering a terrible case of poison oak at the time of the interview.
The article is entitled “The Agony of Zac Efron,” and details the tough life it is to be one of the nicest actors in Hollywood. What’s nice about the story is that it really gives a sense of Zac as person, instead of as the pretty boy girls like to swoon over or the baby-faced Disney star that guys love to hate. But fortunately, the article does more than just show people the true side of Zac. Writer Andrew Goldman probed on some pretty touchy subjects, such as Zac not joining the “Footloose” remake. Turns out everyone had been behind the project: Paramount, “High School Musical” director Kenny Ortega, Zac’s manager Jason Barrett… everyone except Zac.
“All the things I loved about ‘Footloose’ I couldn’t find in the project,” he said. “They just weren’t there. I couldn’t see myself doing it.” He said that calling Kenny to tell him that he was going to pass on “Footloose” was “literally the hardest phone call I’ve ever made.”
Then there’s the whole subject of his relationship with Vanessa Hudgens, which thanks his courage being bolstered by three quarters of a bottle of a nice red wine, Andrew was willing to ask if it was just a business coupling orchestrated by Disney to cover up Zac’s alleged homosexuality.
“That’s just fucking insane,” Zac said. “I’ve never even heard of that happening. I don’t even know who I would have been around who would have thought that was even a good idea. Right now [the gossip industry knows] exactly what’s going on and it’s not very interesting and there’s no money to be made on it. It’s exactly how it should be. It’s real.” [Source]
After presenting at the 2010 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday night, Zac Efron headed on over to watch girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens‘ last performance in “Rent” at The Hollywood Bowl on Sunday night (August 8). During her “Out Tonight” number, JJJ saw Zac get up from his seat “tip” Vanessa $20, which she gladly took and stuffed in her top.
After the performance, JJJ got to see and chat with Vanessa, who had tears coming from her eyes. “I can’t believe it’s over,” she told us exclusively. [Source]
Most girls out there don’t mind Zac Efron’s good guy, Disney star image, but he does sometimes think about being a little more dangerous and a bit of a bad boy.
Efron has revealed that he is somewhat jealous of Shia LaBeouf’s carefree personality: “[T]hat’s awesome to not give a s**t. And Shia still pulls it off,” reports E! News. He also admires that some people just act that way naturally, calling it “so cool.”
It’s unlikely that there are many girls out there who will hold it against him for not being a bad boy like Shia. [Source]
Is Zac Efron ready to break things off with his “High School Musical” sweetheart Vanessa Hudgens?
“Believe me, I rack my brain thinking, ‘Why am I not out there playing the field?'” Efron, 22, muses in the September issue of Details of his girlfriend of about three years. “One of my buddies was like, ‘You have no idea what’s going on right now. You’re peaking on Ecstasy and you’re watching TV.’ But it’s not in my heart.”
And though the “Charlie St. Cloud” star has no shortage of women lining up to be with him, he assures the mag that he’s a one-woman kind of guy.
“Everyone tells me [to play the field],” he says. “I think a lot of guys would enjoy that. But I’m not really like that.”
Efron also squashes Internet rumors that his relationship with Hudgens, 21, is just a publicity stunt.
“That’s just f***ing insane,” he says. “I’ve never even heard of that happening… It would have been so much easier to call it off a long time ago.”
Efron says his relationship with Hudgens is boring. “It’s not very interesting and there’s no money to be made on it. It’s exactly how it should be. It’s real.” [Source]
