From the sound of it, Zac Efron is downright giddy about his sex scenes with Nicole Kidman in the upcoming thriller The Paperboy. After seeing new stills of the movie, so are we. “She’s my love interest… Nicole is so gorgeous. It was everything you dreamed of. She was such a lovely person. I pinch myself everyday, especially after doing love scenes with Nicole Kidman,” Efron gushed to reporters from the AAP. “It was the highlight of my life. Nicole was something else and was always in character. She didn’t get weird method, like some actors do, but I have never seen anyone so centered.” Um, do you all see the bleach-blond Florida hotness that is Kidman in that movie still right there? Just looking at that photo is the highlight of our lives, and yet there’s more!
Collider has 24 new images of the movie, and the each one looks almost as amazing as a Efron/Kidman sex scene looks in our minds. Oh, like you weren’t picturing it too? The photos highlight a greasy-looking Matthew McCounaghey, a paisley-wearing, knife-wielding John Cusack, and the fact everyone is covered in a thin layer of swamp sweat and sex oils. As it should be. That’s just our opinion, though. What do you think about the film’s sex scenes, Nicole?
We see what you did there, Zac Efron. You’re trying to lure us into see your new romantic movie The Lucky One with your supernatural bra-unhooking abilities! We couldn’t help but be swayed when we saw video of you destroying Jimmy Kimmel in a brassiere-removal competition last night. This is just like when you dropped that condom on the red carpet to convince us to see The Lorax. That’s…that’s why everyone else saw The Lorax too, right?
As if that wasn’t enough to charm us into shelling out $12.50, you also talked with People about your sex scenes with costar Taylor Shilling in the film, which is based a Nicholas Sparks novel. “There is sort of a fear inherent in everyone else so me and Taylor weren’t afraid at all,” you explained. Added Taylor, “I think the harder part is doing some of the emotional scenes and then once those are done, it’s like, you want me to kiss you? Meh. No big deal.” Well, if the sex scenes are anything like the ones in the film adaptation of Sparks’ The Notebook, that’s reason enough for us sprint immediately to the nearest movie theater. Oh no…now we’re talking ourselves into seeing your movie! Damn you, Zac Efron! Damn you and your nimble fingers and impressive acting ability!
We are still fanning ourselves after watching this hilarious interview in which a pair of Australian reporters ask Zac Efron to demonstrate how he can unhook a bra with one hand. (This somehow has something to do with The Lucky One, we think.) For some reason, this is the moment in which we realize our little Troy Bolton is all growed up. And very talented. Come to think of it, Zac could probably do a nice video podcast series teaching all the men of the world some of his other useful skills, such as:
How to drop a condom on the red carpet of a children’s movie and still come off as adorable, not at all creepy.
How to “getcha” head in the game: as in, play basketball, dance, lipsynch and toss your Bieber bangs (before they WERE Bieber bangs) out of your eyes all at once.
How to play catch with a ghost.
How to date Vanessa Hudgens.
How to date Lily Collins.
How to befriend Taylor Swift without dating her and thus becoming the subject of a really sad revenge song.
Reverent footballer Tim Tebow is rumored to be dating most of Hollywood, and so is Taylor Swift. So it seemed like only a matter of time before the two would be somehow linked in a match made in slow-news-day hell. The two were first spotted together at a pre-Oscar party last weekend. “They were together for almost an hour,” a witness told Celebuzz. “She approached Tim and he looked more than happy to be talking with her.” And any elementary schooler knows that when a boy and a girl talk, it’s because they like each other.
But then again, Taylor does tend to have quite the active dating life. Wasn’t she supposed to be with Zac Efron, like, last week? She’s been linked to so many people that it’s hard to keep track! So as a public service, we’ve compiled a comprehensive history of Taylor Swift’s boyfriends, real and imagined. No need to thank us. Head on down to the gallery below to see the men behind all those breakup songs!
Matt Lauer could barely suppress his gleeful guffaws this morning on the Today show while discussing the Zac Efron condom-drop incident. Then again, how often do you hear celebs talk about safe sex? Just about never? If they have to giggle behind their hands in order to do it, then chuckle away, fellas! “I never had a pocket-checking policy prior to going onto the red carpet before, but now we fully instated one!” a blushing Efron said about his faux pas at The Lorax premiere. He even teased Lauer about uttering the c-word (“condom,” people): “It was really hard for you to say!” Matt then made an incredibly dumb joke about Zac’s “production company.” Jeez, it’s like we’re taking high school sex ed all over again. Except now all our classmates are grown men wearing HD makeup!
That being said, if something so snicker-inducing had to happen at a film premiere, we’re glad it was The Lorax. The entire movie is about being responsible, and what’s more responsible than preventing the spread of STDs? Just about nothing? “It’s a great message to add to the many messages in the film!” Zac joked. We’re sure if the Lorax had been drawn with genitals, he would completely agree.
Miley Cyrus is a singer, actress, and clearly a baller (and we’re not just talking about which end of the anatomically correct cake she likes to eat). The Disney star dropped a stack or two, specifically $127k on a new ride last week at the Mercedes Benz dealership in Encino, California, according to TMZ. Miley is now whipping a 2012 white SL550 convertible, which she apparently paid for in full. But Liam Hemsworth’s girlfriend isn’t the first Hollywood PYT to splurge on a car. All of the young and famous want to ride in style these days — whether it’s a pink Bentley for the Barbie of hip-hop, Nicki Minaj, or a Batmobile for Mr. Bieber. Here are the 10 most expensive sets of wheels owned by our favorite celebs:
Stretch your calves for a moonlight stroll and dry clean your luxurious bear skin rug: Taylor Swift and Zac Efron are allegedly “going apple picking,” if you get our drift (Ew, what? We’re sorry). Us Weekly reports that the “Mine” singer and the New Year’s Eve actor were spotted “deep in conversation and very giggly” at L.A. restaurant Pace on January 6. Though, haha, if we were dating everyone we had deep, giggly conversation with, we would be dating you, dear readers. Unless…wait, are we dating you?
While Efron has been more or less single since his split with Vanessa Hudgens in December 2010, Taylor has allegedly been getting her tiny porcelain heart smashed to bits in 20122 by the likes of Jake Gyllenhaal, among others. Personally we can totally see this couple working: Efron and Swift are both gorgeous, they both have great hair, they both…um….probably have many other fine qualities in common. Either way, Zac can pretty much count on mid-tempo ballad with his name on it. No, literally. It’ll be called “Dear Zac.” We’re calling it now.
Lea Michele nailed it at the world premiere of New Year’s Eve in L.A. She picked this Valentino gown with Christian Louboutin shoes and Neil Lane jewels and hasn’t made one bad decision from head to toe. While she looked elegant, she couldn’t resist hamming it up with Ashton Kutcher (who really needs a haircut) on the red carpet, as you can see above. Looking a lot more streamlined in his suit was Zac Efron, who doesn’t seem to have a bad angle.
We’ve always loved Michelle Pfeiffer whose 53-year-old body looked amazing in a purple Dolce & Gabbana dress, but we aren’t too sure of the matchy-matchy purple pumps that went with the outfit. Wearing the same designer was Katherine Heigl, and while she looked good in her strapless dress, that hair took the attention away. We’re not sure many people can pull off a bouffant bob. Take note, Katy. Also seen were Hilary Swank in a navy, lacy Elie Saab dress, Fergie who piled on the sparkles in Monique Lhuillier and Sofia Vergara in a corseted black sexpot number. Take a look in our gallery below.
Happy New Year’s, everyone in Hollywood! The New Year’s Eve trailer is out, and celebs are sprinkled throughout like the beer-soaked confetti covering your carpet on January 1st. The cast includes, but is not limited to, Lea Michele, Ashton Kutcher, Zac Efron, Jessica Biel, Sarah Jessica Parker, Sofia Vergara, Abigail Breslin, Seth Meyers, Josh Duhamel, Sienna Miller, Carla Gugino and a partridge in a pear treeeeeee. Oh, and Robert De Niro for a split second at the very,very end.
Maybe we’ve just been burned before, but anyone who’s seen Valentine’s Day, director Gary Marshall’s other rom-com starring five billion A-listers, knows that more celebrities does not mean more enjoyment (unless we’re talking about a charity fundraiser or an orgy). Not that the movie doesn’t have a few high points: an incredibly schlubby Michelle Pfeiffer, a mid-custody-battle Halle Berry, Katherine Heigl and Jon Bon Jovi‘s slap-a-thon and, of course, the Hilary Swank/Ludacris coupling that we are praying is actually the movie’s main focus. If we do end up seeing this movie, it’ll be in the same way we ring in the New Year: drunk, in Times Square and wearing only a diaper and sash.
This story made us sigh about our new dreamboat (of the week). Zac Efron happens to be a great tipper, which added to being young, gorgeous and talented, makes him kinda irresistible. The actor dropped a huge 40% tip on a large bill (which already had some mega service tax) at the Float Bar at the Hard Rock Hotel recently, which is just so frickin’ cool of him. If you disagree with us, why don’t you ask the person who served them how kind that was.
Zac rolled in with a group of friends and ordered a bottle each of Kettle One vodka and Patron Silver along with a 6-pack of Red Bull. Yes, we’re totally ignoring the amount of alcohol consumed. It was group, okay? The bill totaled up to $943 including service tax that amounted to $140. But since Zac is such a baller, he left a $150 tip anyway. Which totally makes us turn into our mothers and say, “What a nice boy”.
