Zac Efron has been in Hawaii for the last few days surfing, cliff jumping and yes, getting leied. The 22-year-actor was honored last night at the Maui Film Festival with the Shining Star Award. Not only did I conduct the night’s official Q&A with Zac, but I also got the chance to chat with him backstage before the big shebang. Read on to get the scoop…
“I’ve never had a better day surfing,” said Efron, who brought his younger brother Dylan, 18, on the trip. “If you’re going to go, you need to go here. The conditions are unbelievable. In California, the waves kind of toss you around. There always seems to be an offshore breeze. Here in Maui, I was out there and the water was so glassy and clear,” continued Efron, who took surfing lessons with celebrity surf instructor Kiva Rivers. “It was like a bathtub. The waves just stay wide open for long rides in.”
Rest and relaxation aside, Efron said he looks for career inspiration from people like Leonardo DiCaprio. However, he insists he has no master plans for how he wants it to all unfold.
“In my career, I’ve never been the man with the plan,” he said. “I’ve never been one to say, I want to be here in 10 years. People always ask, ‘Where do you want to be in 10 years? What do you see in the future?’ I don’t know. I always like to throw caution to the wind and follow my heart.”
Efron will next be seen in the drama “Charlie St. Cloud” with Ray Liotta and Kim Basinger. “I’m loving the ride right now,” he beamed. “I’m loving it.”
On stage, he cracked, “I’ve been here five minutes [and] I got leied.”
Before the awards ceremony, which took place outside at the Celestial Cinema on the Wailea Golf Course, Efron hit the opening night party at Capische? restaurant along with Malin Akerman, Josh Radnor and Dan Byrd. Later on, Efron mingled and even did some dancing at Tommy Bahama before calling it a night. [Source]
Missing Nikki Blonsky from your life after the 2007 remake of “Hairspray”? Have no fear, she’s back again: not in a John Waters musical this time, but on “Huge,” a new TV series about plus-size teens at a weight loss camp.
“Huge” stars Blonsky, 21, as a girl sent to the camp by parents who want her to drop some pounds, which is not in her plans at all. Blonsky stars alongside Hayley Hasselhoff – yes, The Hoff’s daughter – who is totally gung-ho about losing weight because she’s convinced her life will be awesome if she’s skinny and hot. Most of the cast memebrs are plus-size actors and actresses. “I don’t think there’s ever been a full cast of plus size people before,” says Blonsky.
You better believe I’ll be parked in front of the boob tube when “Huge” debuts on Monday, June 28th on ABC Family at 9 p.m. EST. After the jump, Nikki Blonsky talks about being a plus-size actress, her dream to sing on “Glee,” and her pal, Zac Efron.
So I want to know, do you still keep in touch with your “Hairspray” co-stars?
Absolutely. I’m so excited right now for John Travolta. His wife, Kelly, is expecting and I couldn’t be more happy for them. They so deserve another beautiful child and I love them so much and I wish them the best. I keep in touch with mostly all of my “Hairspray” co-stars. I just spoke to Zac [Efron] recently. Now that I’m out in California, I have access to them a lot more.

Based on an acclaimed novel, “Charlie St. Cloud” stars Zac Efron as a young man who survives an accident that lets him see the world in a unique way. In this emotionally charged story, he begins a romantic journey in which he embraces the dark realities of the past while discovering the transformative power of love.
Accomplished sailor Charlie St. Cloud (Efron) has the adoration of mother Claire (Oscar(R) winner Kim Basinger) and little brother Sam (newcomer Charlie Tahan), as well as a college scholarship that will lead him far from his sleepy Pacific Northwest hometown. But his bright future is cut short when a tragedy strikes and takes his dreams with it.
After his high-school classmate Tess (Amanda Crew) returns home unexpectedly, Charlie grows torn between honoring a promise he made four years earlier and moving forward with newfound love. And as he finds the courage to let go of the past for good, Charlie discovers the soul most worth saving is his own. [Source]
It’s swimsuit season in Hollywood, and that means the stars have been working hard on their beach bodies. On People magazine’s latest cover is heartthrob Zac Efron – with his shirt off, of course – as he tops the list of 50 “most amazing bodies”.
“He was chosen because he’s not that hard to look at as you can imagine. But also because he’s gone through an amazing transformation,” says People staff editor Michelle Tan.
Also on the list: Jennifer Love Hewitt, rapper Common, Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Kellan Lutz, Ryan Philippe and Gabrielle Union. Tan says the issue also provides tips and advice for readers to score their own six-pack, or bikini bod just like their favorite star. [Source]
Amanda Crew shows off her muscles with gal pal Amber Borycki as they attend the Muscle Milk Light Women’s Fitness Retreat in Beverly Hills late last week. The 24-year-old “Charlie St. Cloud” actress told JJJ that she actually had butterflies the first couple times she had to kiss costar Zac Efron. But don’t fret – Amanda also told us that after a couple of days, it was just another day at the office. [Source]
We’ve seen Zac Efron as teen basketball star Troy Bolton, and as Matthew Perry’s younger self in “17 Again,” but as a potentially delusional young man with visions of his dead brother? That’s something not all of us saw coming. Regardless, Zac plays troubled young man Charlie in “Charlie St. Cloud,” hitting theaters on July 30.
“I was very excited to do this role because it’s something different – it’s a lot more adventurous and real,” Zac said in a new featurette, adding that his character is “ready to take on life” when things takes an “unexpected turn” and his little brother dies in a car accident.
The ability to see the ghost of little brother, Zac goes on to explain, “is a huge gift, but at the same time, it’s very much a curse because he’s got this weight that he carries.”
Don’t worry, though, this isn’t just a “Sixth Sense” for the teen set. “It’s got everything in it,” the actor said. “There are supernatural elements; it’s a romance. I love the message.” The new footage falls in line with Zac’s analysis, but what we suspect will have viewers buzzing is the chemistry between Zac and his “sailor girl” love interest, played by Amanda Crew.

“It's a blast and it all takes place over summer vacation. It's a lot sexier than the first. If that one was 'Grease,' then this one is 'Dirty Dancing.' More romance, more summer lovin', more of the juicy stuff.”
