Zac Efron is a One Direction groupie. He loves the group, and he sent them a special message when he realized they were touring Australia at the same time he was Down Under to promote his film « The Lucky One. »
In an interview for a Melbourne T.V. talk show, Zac Efron freaked out when he heard that the 1D guys were also visiting the Land of Wonder. Seriously.
« I’m freaking out! » gushed the former « High School Musical » star throwing up his hands hysterically. « I gotta go get in line! »
When the host asked Zac what advice he would give to Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, and Louis Tomlinson about surviving the phenomenon of teen idol-dom, Efron replied:
« Seriously, I don’t think they need my advice. I think they know what they’re doing. I mean, have fun. Cherish this moment. It’s super fun. You know, I would say keep your heads screwed on straight. They seem like smart kids–er–smart guys–they’re not kids. They know what they’re doing. » [Source]
