Zac Efron Covers BlackBook October 2012
Letting a bunch of cuddly animals crawl all over him, the 24-year-old actor posed in a Merlot colored suit for the Doug Inglish shot front page while dishing about everything from not liking himself as an actor to dealing with fame.
Highlights from Mr. Efron's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to BlackBook!
On becoming a famous actor:
"Around the time "Charlie St. Cloud" came out I was confused, I wasn't here for money; I didn't need any more of it. I wasn't here for fame; I wasn't enjoying it. I was here for art."
On how he views himself:
"As a man watching Zac Efron, I don't necessarily like me yet. So how can I like Zac Efron? Maybe, if that guy shook things up, did what I didn't expect him to do, if he wasn't afraid to be a dick, if he wasn't afraid to fall on his face, if he hung around long enough and did the grunt work, one day I might respect him."
On his upcoming movie "The Paperboy:"
"I wanted a project that involved risk. I wanted to see how deep the rabbit hole went and how far I could really push myself."
Check out the video Zac posted to his Who Say account thanking the Wildlife Learning Center in Sylmar, California where the BlackBook photo shoot was held.
