Zac Efron, who got to smooch Michelle Pfeiffer in « New Year’s Eve, » has revealed that he had a secret crush on the actress since he was 18. The « High School Musical » star first met the veteran Hollywood actress when they worked together on 2007 musical « Hairspray, » and he jumped at the chance to co-star with her in their 2011 comedy.
He has previously told how their onscreen smooch was his most favourite part of the shoot – and now he’s confessed getting passionate with Pfeiffer had been his dream for years.
« I had a huge crush on Michelle during filming of ‘Hairspray.’ She was an angel that turned up on set every day and I would try as much as I could to get close to her and strike up some awkward conversation – I was 18 and didn’t know what I was doing, » the Daily Express quoted him as telling talk show host Graham Norton in an interview.
« And then she was trying to get hold of me to see if I was doing ‘New Year’s Eve’ so I had two voicemails from Michelle Pfeiffer. It was the best experience of my life doing that movie with her. Driving around on a Vespa with her on the back, I felt like the king of the world. And kissing her was my dream come true. It was amazing, » he added. [Source]
