Nicole Kidman pees all over Zac Efron in the pulpy sex drama “The Paperboy” and, yes, you read that correctly. But don’t expect him to get excited about this whizzer from an A-lister.
He swears he can barely recall the experience, despite several takes of the scene, which occurs after his studly character Jack is stung by a jellyfish. Kidman’s trampy Charlotte, hot for Jack’s buff bod, administers a home remedy straight from the source.
“I can’t remember. It was a few (takes). My character was sort of unconscious for it,” a smiling Efron said Friday, after arriving in Toronto for Friday night’s TIFF screening of “The Paperboy.”
The man is clearly game for anything, which might surprise people who think of him first and foremost as a wholesome crooner from Disney’s “High School Musical” franchise.
His openness likely wouldn’t shock anyone who has read his revelation in The Advocate magazine that while he’s straight, “I just can’t see what’s so wrong about being gay.”
Efron, 24, sat with one of his “Paperboy” co-stars, Britain’s David Oyelowo, 36, to chat with the Star about the methods of director Lee (Lee Daniels of “Precious”) and the moments of glee in this 1969-set Florida crime saga, which also stars Matthew McConaughey, John Cusack and Macy Gray.
OK, inquiring minds what to know: is that real whiz or just Mountain Dew that Kidman administers to you in the film?
Zac Efron: Now I can say this. Lee just kept saying to me, “She’s really going to pee on you!” He wanted me to react with a good scare, but I was just like, “It’s cool. I’m ready. I’m ready to rock.” But I still don’t know what happened. I was in the moment… nah, they had a rig! It’s not actually Nicole’s pee!”
Also eye-catching is how often Zac takes his shirt off, even for a place like Florida. Did you have a contractual obligation to remove it a certain number of times?
Zac Efron: Believe it or not, no! The shirt was revolutionary. I think Lee inspires a sort of fearlessness. I think he requires that, amongst his actors especially. He might come up to you at the last minute and tell you something pretty big about your character, something new you’re just wishing to try. Nothing is safe; you have to be prepared to bare it all.
Before news of his endorsement with local retail giant Penshoppe broke out, all we ever knew about Zac Efron’s connection to the Philippines was that his former “High School Musical” sweetheart, Vanessa Hudgens, is of Filipino descent.
But now, we’ve actually discovered that the teen heartthrob-turned-Hollywood hunk has more ties to our beautiful, sunny shores than we’d originally thought. Get this: he’s actually very, very excited about his trip. And no, that’s not just lip service.
Coming straight from the international premiere of his latest movie, “The Paperboy,” Zac is set to appear in this year’s Penshoppe Fan Conference on Sept. 29, at the SM Mall of Asia Arena. Gates open at 6PM.
It will be Zac’s first time in the Philippines. Initially, he wasn’t so keen about doing endorsements. But when he heard that Penshoppe is a Filipino brand, he immediately said yes.
“It’s the perfect, perfect excuse to finally visit. I can’t take my mind off that country,” he was reported to have said.
Why? Because his father, Dave Efron, used to serve under the Merchant Marines and often visited the Philippines in the past (Mindoro in particular). He’s also flying in with Zac for the trip.
“Zac has always had this curiosity and/or mystique over the Philippines since he was a kid,” said Dave. “The beaches there are lovely and we can’t wait to come!”
“Sometimes my father will disappear for weeks ‘cause he’s enjoying the Philippines so much. So I’ve always wanted to come and visit,” added Zac.
