Sometimes it takes a very personal event to inspire us to really make a difference. This seems to be the case for Zac Efron, who is taking a serious, yet fun, stand against cancer with his cousin and cancer survivor, Emily Hobson. Zac Gives Back supports i2Y – I’m Too Young for This Cancer Foundation. The nonprofit exists to educate and empower young adult cancer patients so they can access the most effective and age-appropriate resources out there.
Hobson, a huge supporter of i2Y, gave Efron a few wristbands and he started wearing one. A few weeks later Matthew Zachary, cancer survivor and i2Y founder, received a photo of the “High School Musical” star and his cousin “giving cancer the bird.” The catchphrase has since become the motto for Stupid Cancer, a campaign which calls for a TwitPic challenge. How to play? Gather as many Zac Efron fans as possible, make sure they’re all wearing Stupid Cancer wristbands, flip a collective bird, say cheese and submit the evidence. You’ve got until April 1, 2010 to do it, so get going. Prizes will go to the top three organizers.
If only a fraction of Zac fans and Twitter followers partake in this irreverent for a good cause event, some serious dough will be raised – and it’s surely needed. Each year, nearly 70,000 young adults are diagnosed with cancer, and roughly 10,000 die annually. Over the past 30 years, this age group (15-39) has seen the greatest increase of incidence. Not OK!
But Zac Gives Back isn’t Efron’s first philanthropic endeavor. The avid surfer often supports the surf community’s fund raising efforts. Earlier this year he went Down Under to host an Oakley’s Learn to Ride surf lesson, benefiting the OneSight Foundation. And, this past summer, he contributed to PacSun Pipeline To A Cure for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
From where we stand this week, (which is of course behind a raised middle finger) Zac is looking pretty good – inside and out. [Source]
Sony’s decision to overhaul the “Spider-Man” movie franchise and replace director Sam Raimi and star Tobey Maguire was met with some skepticism from fans, but the film studio has already made significant strides by hiring Marc Webb as the reboot’s new director. While a replacement hasn’t been hired for Maguire, there’s no shortage of actors that would like to swing into the role of Peter Parker – including “High School Musical” star Zac Efron.
When MTV News spoke with the actor on the red carpet of the Academy Awards on Sunday (March 7), Efron emphasized that he would love to star as Marvel’s beloved superhero icon. “Are you kidding? It would be a dream come true,” he said. “I think it would be an honor. I would tear it up.” [Source]
Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens are Young Hollywood’s “it” couple, but that doesn’t mean that they’re perfect. In the March 2010 issue of J-14 magazine, the 22-year-old Charlie St. Cloud actor emphasizes just that. Zac shared, “I’ve failed miserably several times at relationships growing up. It’s not like I’ve got all the right moves!” [Source]
Zac Efron woke up on a water bed of a different kind when his £650,000 Hollywood home was flooded by heavy rain. The 22-year-old “High School Musical” star’s pool overflowed and gushed into his home while he slept, leaving him ankle-deep in water.
A source said: “He and some pals spent an entire day mopping out his house and sandbagging doors to block further flooding.”
But he is determined to stop it happening again and has called in landscapers. [Source]
