Tag: Zac Efron (1-10 of 21)

Watch Zac Efron get shirtless in pretty much every one of his movies. Where should he take it off next? -- VIDEO

Earlier this month, Zac Efron told The Hollywood Reporter that he is much more comfortable in his skin post-rehab. That skin is on display in his new comedy Neighbors, but from the looks of it, Efron has been comfortable in his skin his entire career.

Looking through his IMDb page, it’s harder to find a film where he kept his clothes on the entire time than it would be for Seth Rogen to actually get a job as an Abercrombie & Fitch model. After memorably winning the MTV Movie Award for Best Shirtless Moment, which was then immediately upstaged by his own acceptance speech (thank you, Rita Ora!), MTV has compiled all your favorite shirtless Zefron moments in one video package.

Seth Rogen and Zac Efron don drag for Fallon's 'Ew!' sketch -- VIDEO

Ever wonder what Zac Efron’s buff body looks like in a wig and dress?

Wonder no more, silent weirdos of the Internet. Tuesday on Tonight, Jimmy Fallon brought back “Ew!,” his spoof Teen Nick show where celebrities dress like teenage girls and say “Ew!” a bunch. That’s…basically it.

The people donning wigs and dresses this time around? Seth Rogen and Zac Efron, who, to their credit, get super into the silly bit. Come for Efron twirling his hair, stay for the last 30 seconds, which includes an awesome Gary Oldman shout out (I think Rogen may be a huge Harry Potter fan?) as well as a James Franco joke. Lord knows there’s plenty to talk about there.

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

Workaholics-Neighbors.jpg

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.

Their appearance in the Workaholics world is part of a promotional tour for the duo’s upcoming movie Neighbors, in which Rogen plays a new dad who clashes with his family’s new neighbor, a rowdy frat — and let’s just say Efron lives up to his role as cocky frat boy in the clip. READ FULL STORY

Zac Efron says he's up for more 'High School Musical,' and so are we

Are you ready to get your head back in the game?

Zac Efron might be. Over the weekend, a reporter for E! asked the actor if he would ever return to the sacred (?) halls of East High — home of Disney’s High School Musical franchise. And instead of shooting down the rumors, Efron replied, “We’re all thinking about it. I continue to see all the guys from High School. Every time we do…there’s just this look between us.”

Right off the bat, I’ll acknowledge that while this isn’t a “no,” it’s also not confirmation of a reunion. But also: At this point, would a reunion be the worst idea? It’s not exactly surprising that Efron may be in, even though a year or two ago he wanted to graduate from East High for good. (UPDATE: When EW asked Disney Channel for a response to Efron’s comments, they sent this statement: “Everyone at Disney Channel takes pride in knowing that our wonderful ‘High School Musical’ cast has fond memories about their days as ‘Wildcats,’ and that each year, new audiences are introduced to the movies through our telecasts around the world, but we have no ‘new news’ to report.”)

If Efron did decide to return and give us “Scream Pt. 2,” it’s easy to see the rest of the cast following suit. They wouldn’t even have to carry a full movie: For a long time, Disney was developing a fourth High School Musical for TV. (And no, I’m not talking about SNL‘s High School Musical: New Senior Class.) The movie, called High School Musical: East Meets West, supposedly would have starred a new cast, and would have told a West Side Story-esque story about East and West High. (Real talk: What was Troy and Gabrielle’s love if not a millennial, significantly less high-stakes version of Maria and Tony?) The project keeps getting pushed back, but it hasn’t been canceled — Disney just put out Teen Beach Movie instead. But what if it got revved up again — and the original HSM gang came back for a little alumni number? (Efron has long said he would consider doing something like that.) READ FULL STORY

MTV Movie Awards: Rebel Wilson's most outrageous jokes

MTV Movie Awards host Rebel Wilson is known for a particularly uncomfortable brand of comedy. Witness: Pitch Perfect‘s Fat Amy, who told the Barden Bellas she adopted the moniker “so skinny bitches like you don’t do it behind my back.” Considering the fact that at least one promo for tonight’s show featured a punchline in which Wilson found her in a compromising position regarding Channing Tatum’s junk, it seemed clear that the Aussie hostess wouldn’t spare the salacious.

To her credit, Wilson didn’t go the safe route. Most of her jokes fell on the absurdist side of the comedy spectrum rather than the conventional, Poconos-style yuks that hosts generally adopt for these occasions. (The one exception, in her intro of Kerry Washington: “Our next presenter is one of the few actresses that plays strong black women more than Tyler Perry.”) Whether her one-liners landed or not, they certainly delivered an across-the-board jaw-drop factor.

Below, we run down Wilson’s most obscene, sometimes cringe-worthy, lines from the 2013 ceremony. READ FULL STORY

Leonardo DiCaprio, Selena Gomez, Ellen DeGeneres want you to 'Vote 4 Stuff' -- VIDEO

Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Amanda Seyfried. Edward Norton. Zac Efron. Tobey Maguire? No, it’s not an overstuffed ensemble comedy from the guys who brought you Martin Luther King Day — it’s a new PSA for Vote4Stuff, a nonpartisan campaign created by Maguire and his buddy Leonardo DiCaprio. Eat your heart out, Rock the Vote!

The video starts out silly — vote for “gays in the military, exclusively!” says Sarah Silverman; “I vote yes on cats. I know they’re up to something, but I like them,” counters Benicio Del Toro — but eventually gets serious. These celebs want us regular Joes and Janes to make short videos about the electoral issues we care about, some of which will be incorporated into the Vote4Stuff campaign later this month. It’ll be tough for any of those normal people-created clips to be as amusing as this one — but if you’re up for the challenge, you can learn more about Vote4Stuff on Facebook. In the meantime, let’s argue about which star’s fake political issue is the funniest:
