Zac Efron has always suited up and looked dapper on the red carpets of various events. The 22-year-old actor recently sat down with IESB to chat about his wardrobe, stealing a few things and Orson Welles. Check it.
On picking and choosing his wardrobe: “It’s all about accessories. I notice people that look good. I notice fashion on other people. I enjoy when people try to look their best. I was always taught to try and look my best. That’s my main influence. I’m not looking to influence fashion, any more than the next guy. But, I try to do my best when I’m out representing my movies.”
On taking things from his trailer: “I think I stole some of the stuff. On the last day, they always try to get it out of your trailer, really quick. I always steal some of my wardrobe. I never know what I’m going to need.”
On knowing Orson Welles pretty well: “I read the original book. For my age, I pretty much had the standard knowledge about Orson Welles. I studied him in high school, a little bit before that, and was familiar with a lot of his work, like the War of the Worlds radio broadcast. Coming into this, I thought I was pretty well-read on Orson and then immediately found out that I hadn’t even scratched the surface on this guy. Rick Linklater was the one who really filled us in and supplied us with endless literature, articles and old photos. I think I’ve seen every picture of Orson that ever existed.”

Zac Efron said he performed such an over-the-top audition as a child that he was asked to leave the room. The ‘High School Musical’ star – who plays a teenage student who, by luck, gets to work with a young Orson Welles in the new coming-of-age drama ‘Me and Orson Wells’ – said the try-out still haunts him now.
He said: “That was my first experience and I had just done the play ‘Peter Pan’ so I thought I was, I mean, who could be better. We were all quite young and I wasn’t even playing Peter I was playing John but I’d watched loads of actors play Peter so I showed up at the audition and I was dancing around and jumping off things and being crazy like lost boys you know. I ran around, I jumped up on my chair and started singing the lines and then she interrupted me, she goes, ‘You’ve never done this before have you?’ and I said, ‘no, not at all.’ And she said, ‘OK, you can go.’”
The 22-year-old actor – who is most famous for his roles in the ‘High School Musical’ films – admitted he broke down in tears after he was rejected.
He said: “It was completely my fault; I thought I was auditioning for the play. I kinda wept about that one.” [Source]
Zac Efron insists he’s happy that Robert Pattinson came on the showbiz scene – because now he can have a life! The “High School Musical” actor says he’s delighted to give way to the “Twilight” hunk because Pattinson deflects the attention away from him.
“It’s great because now I don’t get so much female attention,” Efron said. [Source]

Zac Efron is more than grateful for his fans everywhere, but sometimes it can be overwhelming. The 22-year-old actor revealed to Extra during promos for his upcoming drama, “Me & Orson Welles,” about the fan groups that would follow him and the other actors to set.
He shared, “The idea of going to a fairly secluded place and to fly away for a couple of weeks… I was so excited to leave all the attention behind. [But] we had a small crowd of young girls and boys hooraying us as we would drive up to set.”
Zac continued, “It’s incredibly endearing and cool that they would do that kind of thing for you. I’m very grateful. To be honest, I think our crew and the rest of the cast got a big kick out of it.”
