Teen heartthrob Zac Efron announced on Tuesday’s episode of « The Tonight with Jay Leno » that he plans to take snowboarding lessons from none other than Shaun White. Efron presented White with his award for Best Male U.S. Olympic Athlete at the 2010 ESPY Awards last week, and has expressed an admiration for the Olympic gold medalist.
« I actually got Shaun’s number and I’m going to try to go snowboarding with him, » Efron told Leno. « He’s great. He’s someone from my generation that I really look up to. When he pulled those stunts at the Olympics, that was insane. »
Efron stars in the upcoming film « Charlie St. Cloud. » No word yet on when or where the rendezvous would take place. [Source]
