Regardless of your opinion on the supernatural, seeing a movie about a ghost appeals to everyone. There’s that whole “suspension of disbelief” thing for the non-believers, and for the believers, well, it’s that much more real of a concept. Seeing as “Charlie St. Cloud” stars Zac Efron as a dude who interacts with his younger brother’s ghost, we decided to get the stars of the film to weigh in on their otherworldly encounters as they walked the premiere’s red carpet last night.
Zac said he falls into the skeptical camp, and doesn’t have any ghost stories of his own to share. “I think everyone’s had those things they can’t necessarily explain at one point or another,” he said. “No, I don’t have any ghost stories for you.” [Source]

Enjoy watching a new clip from “Charlie St. Cloud.”
Amanda Crew lets out a hearty laugh as she recalls her screen test with costar Zac Efron. The 23-year-old actress shared with ET about her screen test and the scene, “I didn’t want to be presumptuous. I knew that he has a girlfriend and I didn’t have a job yet. So when it came to [the kiss] we would just kind of nuzzle. Burr [Steers, director] came over to just give me some notes to try some stuff so I asked him, ‘You know, is it okay, how does he feel if I actually kiss him? Because I feel that that’s what the scene is missing.”
“Burr tells me, ‘You’re the only one who hasn’t kissed him.’ Everyone else who auditioned just went for it. I was like, ‘Oh-kay.’” [Source]
With the release of his new film, “Charlie St. Cloud,” our LA reporter Diem caught up with teen heart-throb Zac Efron to discuss everything from his fans to his spiritual side. Come and listen to what the “High School Musical” star had to say for himself, or just sit back and watch the perfection that is Zac. Trust us, you won’t be disappointed. [Source]
If Zac Efron had a cold on Monday, as opposed to allergies, he probably passed it along to some fans at Bloomington’s Mall of America. The way that mostly female crowd, estimated at 7,000, screamed, they’d gladly share germs from Efron, who was here to promote his movie “Charlie St. Cloud.” Only 100 to 200 fans actually got to meet Efron at the event sponsored by KDWB-FM. The chosen few got autographs plus a handshake or a hug, depending on their druthers.
Fans of the “High School Musical” heartthrob, who kept wiping his nose and eyes with his hand, were on all levels, down main corridors (roped off in places where they could not possibly have gotten a glimpse of Efron) and in new areas where there is usually no need to pool crowds.
Efron seemed awed by the scene. And he should have been. MOA spokeswoman Erica Dao checked the records and reported that Efron’s “High School Musical” co-star and girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens attracted an estimated 4,000 while former Gov. Sarah Palin’s crowd was estimated at 3,000.
Efron was late to the signing. According to a KDWB staffer, who may have been joking, Efron stopped at a convenience store to eat a hot dog.
Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens are finally opening up about the disappointment of their new flick’s release dates. Since the announcement of the new release date for “Beastly,” fans weren’t the only ones who were let down.
Zac, 22, shared with MTV, “It was disappointing. It was hard. I actually had to break the news to her. I was like, ‘I think we are moving on to your date.’ She took it really well, but it’s hard when that kind of stuff happens. We don’t, as actors, have any control over it, so we’ll see. I mean, hopefully it will work out for the best. ‘Beastly’ is a great movie, and when it does come out, people are absolutely going to love it.”
Vanessa, 21, added, “I just didn’t feel right about us having movies coming out on the same day. It’s just not right. We’re actually going to be doing some re-shoots and changing it up a bit, so hopefully we’ll make it that much better.”

Zac Efron has responded to Miley Cyrus’s recent admission that she would have posters of him on her walls if they were not friends. The “Hannah Montana” star previously told Access Hollywood that Efron held a “special place” in her heart.
“I am obsessed with Zac Efron. If it wouldn’t be creepy because he’s a friend, I would have posters on my wall,” she joked.
During a recent interview with Access Hollywood, Efron was played a video clip of Cyrus’s interview and asked for his response.
“That’s so funny! I don’t even know what to say to that,” he said. “She’s really sweet. I’ve known Miley for a really long time. I’ve known her since she was a little girl. It’s amazing what she’s done. She’s blossomed into this beautiful lady now and taken the world by storm. I’m so proud of her.” [Source]
