Zac Efron opens up about drugs and tough times: 'I'm much more comfortable in my own skin'

Is Zac Efron doing better these days? Bet on it.

The actor — who’s promoting his buzzy comedy Neighbors — is on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter and opening up for the first time about his struggles with addiction and incidents like getting into a fight on Skid Row.

The good news: Efron shared he’s in AA and seeing a therapist, and things are a lot better than they were. “I think it’s changed my life,” he told the magazine, in reference to his new routine. “I’m much more comfortable in my own skin.” READ FULL STORY

'Neighbors': Seth Rogen and Zac Efron try out for 'Workaholics' cubicle -- NSFW VIDEO


In a new Comedy Central video, Seth Rogen and Zac Efron audition for the most coveted role of them all: the fourth member of Adam, Blake, and Anders’ cubicle on Workaholics.

PopWatch Planner: 'Game of Thrones' returns, along with MTV's 'The Challenge' and more

I can win over most of you with five words about this week: Game of Thrones is back.

Possibly even a season pass.  READ FULL STORY

“Oh Marty, get off of it. We all know how this script ends. You tell us you’re going to do something. We say we’re going with you. You say no. We go anyway. Hijinks ensue. You learn from us, we learn from you, and it all gets wrapped up in a nice tidy package, usually around 9 p.m.”
