Quotable: Miley Cyrus Doesn’t Watch Zac Efron Movies For The Acting

“Girls are immediately going to say, ‘Oh, she’s trying to sell sex.’ Well, I love Zac Efron, but what’s he selling? He’s gorgeous, he’s hot, [but] I don’t go see his movie because I’m like, ‘He’s such a fantastic actor.’ He’s a great actor, but he’s hot. He’s just not in a leotard with his legs out. He has his shirt off. So what’s the difference? In “High School Musical” … he’s in basketball shorts and his cutoff tank top and all the girls are dying. It just isn’t as obvious when guys do it. I was on tour with the Jonas Brothers my first year and boy bands get away with a lot. For girls, it’s always going to be harder. That’s not an excuse, it just means we have to work harder.”

Miley Cyrus might be the new reigning queen of barely legal publicity stunts, but she still has a point about double standards. [Access Hollywood] Keep reading »

    Zac Efron Gets Footloose!

    “High School Musical 3: Senior Year”, the last in the mega-popular series, just hit theaters this weekend, but its leading man, Zac Efron, really is graduating! Paramount plans on remaking “Footloose,” the classic ’80s flick starring Kevin Bacon, and Efron is signed on to star as the rebellious toe tapper, Ren McCormack. That’s right, the singing and dancing dreamboat is going to shake his butt in another big musical about high schoolers. Hmm, “Hairspray”, the “HSM” franchise, and now “Footloose” — the dude has got a niche! But even Kevin Bacon is sure Zac will attack the role and gave him his boogie blessing. In case you’re still hungry for some Bacon, check out the original bad boy strutting his stuff after the jump. [The Hollywood News] Keep reading »
