Zac Efron was left terrified on the set of his new movie “The Paperboy” by co-star Nicole Kidman’s sex appeal. The former “High School Musical” star admits he was looking for a project with depth and risk – and he found it in abundance in Lee Daniels’ steamy new film.
The actor admits he “enjoyed” being seduced by the Moulin Rouge actress, 45, during one of their romps. But there was one explicit scene, which also involved co-star John Cusack, that left him stunned. Zac’s Jack Jansen watches on as co-star John’s character does a sex act in his underwear after being turned on by Nicole’s character Charlotte Bless.
The young star tells Black Book magazine it was a very intense shoot: “That was the first day of filming and Nicole just completely went for it. She was telling everyone ‘I’m bringing my A-game. What do you have?’ I’ve never been so scared in my life, but that moment affirmed this movie was everything I set out to do.”
Zac has previously told how spending so much time in his underpants during filming took him out of his comfort zone – but added that it was worth it.
He said: “The love scenes with Nicole Kidman were the highlight of my life. Every scene felt like I was in Moulin Rouge.”
The flick – which has no UK release date yet – is an adaptation of Pete Dexter’s novel of the same name. Matthew McConaughey and songbird Macy Gray also appear in it. [Source]
Filipino fans of Hollywood actor Zac Efron need not wait any longer as he has finally arrived in the country for his activities as the latest endorser of a local clothing brand and a bit of R&R.
An ABS-CBNNews.com article posted on Sept. 26 reported that Efron arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport “around noon” today with his dad David, manager Jason Barrett, and Hollywood photographer Darren Tieste.
“Well, first of all this trip is an amazing, amazing excuse to go to the Philippines. I have always wanted to visit the Philippines. My dad, who has been to your country several times, has been telling me great stories about it,” the star of the popular “High School Musical” films was quoted to have said.
As soon as the actor landed at the airport, he was reportedly transferred to a private plane en route to Legazpi City in Albay. Efron and his entourage will be staying for “a brief vacation” at the posh Misibis Bay Resorts “as personal guest[s] of Bicolano tycoon Zaldy Co.”
On Saturday evening, Efron will meet his local supporters via a fan conference set by Penshoppe at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.
Efron is the latest prized addition to Penshoppe’s “All Stars” campaign. The past year saw the brand unveil its A-list lineup of endorsers in succession, beginning with Thai actor Mario Maurer, followed by “Gossip Girl” stars Ed Westwick and Leighton Meester, and most recently, “The Vampire Diaries” lead Ian Somerhalder.
