The testosterone-fueled, ruggedly “handsome” screen star as we know him—strong jaw line, brooding eyes, a prominent nose—is on the way out, if the New York Observer is to be believed. Surely, in this post-”Queer Eye” world, it’s no secret that even the Manliest of Manly Men are trimming their facial scruff and plucking their beastly brows. But Irina Aleksader at the Observer wonders if what currently makes girls squeal are…girlie men.

In response to his debacle with Perez Hilton in Toronto after the Much Music Awards, Will.i.am created a video to defend himself. Of course, Perez Hilton wanted to have the last word, so he posted a video response. The people over at Funny Or Die couldn’t resist taking advantage of the fact that it’s pretty impossible to watch the 11-minute narrative while keeping a straight face. Above is their parody, featuring Breckin Meyer with a quick appearance by Zac Efron. [I wonder how Perez felt about that. He has a crush on Zac! -- Editor] Breckin, where you been since “Clueless?” Keep reading »
Zac Efron (Harajuku) lovers greet the star at an airport in Tokyo, where the swine flu scare prompted his fans to proclaim their love for him via fashion statements.

We so can’t blame them. [Tokyo, 5/13/09] Keep reading »

Starting tomorrow the prettiest of all the pretty boys, Zac Efron, will appear in “High School Musical 3,” the final chapter in the franchise that made him a star. While we were a little turned on by his performance in last year’s “Hairspray,” we just can’t get over how there isn’t a stray hair on his head, and how perfectly groomed his eyebrows are. Was he born this way, or does he have a glam-squad that keeps him beautiful? We’re inclined to think the latter. Pretty boys are nice to look at, but we don’t think we’d date one for fear that people would take one look at us with them and scream, “Mismatch!” Below, some pretty boy archetypes. Keep reading »
“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 »
