Let’s be clear: we don’t believe this. We refuse to believe this. We just can’t believe this. But according to Marc Malkin of E! Online, Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens are no longer an item. “It’s nothing dramatic,” says Lamestain Insider No. 1. “There’s no third party involved.” No! No! No! You mean to tell us that these two could make it through five years, three High School Musical movies and a nude photo scandal…only to break up out of boredom? Their boringness is what made them great! And how could you break this scoop only a day before Vanessa’s 22nd birthday! Shame on you, Malkin!
“They were together for so long,” confirmed Lamestain Insider No. 2. “It just ran its course.” No, you just ran your course! Some would say it’s totally understandable for two famous, insanely attractive young people who started dating in their teens to break up after five years. Some would even say it’s a miracle they lasted as long as they did. But until Zac or Vanessa confirm the story themselves, we’re going to hold out hope that this all some horrible, horrible joke. The world needs heroes!

Something scary has been popping up all over Hollywood (no, it’s not Lindsay Lohan): famous dudes with freakish facial hair. You may recall the growth that metastasized on Spencer Pratt‘s face recently, or perhaps you’ve noticed Conan O’Brien‘s post-Tonight Show debacle hair-bellion that has yet to subside. Earlier this year Brad Pitt got in on the act and uglified his glorious mug. But still we persevered, surviving on the smooth skinned hunks still left in LaLa Land. But when Robert Pattinson, the ultimate GWPAVTILFPPP (guy who plays a vampire that I’d like to f*ck pretty pretty please), started roaming North America with a serious “I’m trying to hide from everyone” beard, our heart officially broke in two and then grew a goatee.
Men, enough. You cannot continue uglifying yourself in this way. We ladies slave away stripping the hair off of every feasible body part we can find – the least you could do is splurge on some shaving cream and spend five minutes scrapping that roadkill of your chin. Until you do we’ll be hold up in this fortress we’ve put together made solely of razor blades. Take a hint!

Did you see Charlie St. Cloud? Neither did we! But it looked like Zac Efron flexed his acting muscles for the role beyond what we’re used to and we commend him for breaking his Disney mold. Efron is still making the publicity rounds for the film and he’s currently in Spain for its premiere there, where he dressed down for the occasion. Missing from this photo are his ax and the super-absorbent paper towels he’s the spokesman for.
Let’s start out with the best quote from Zac Efron’s new interview in the September issue of Details: “‘Oh…my…God,’ Efron says with a gasp. ‘It’s like the best…orgasm…ever! And I just keep coming!” Unfortunately Zac was only describing running water over his poison oak rash. How disappointing.
Luckily for us, the essay is more than just six pages of getting us worked up over nothing; it also paints an interesting portrait of a Disney star on the verge of becoming a legitimate actor. As Zac enters his “Not A Boy, Not Yet Our Boyfriend” stage of life, he has to some how negotiate how to go from dribbling synchronized basketballs in a choreographed musical number to…well, literally anything else. But how does one get a career that is more Johnny Depp than Joey Lawrence (Just kidding. Watch The Manny this fall on ABC Family!) And what about Kirk Cameron? WHAT ABOUT KIRK CAMERON?
While we’re all pretty sure Zac was created at the Harvard Lab for Perfect Boyfriend Research, its going to take something of an image make-over to ensure he won’t end up crammed in a studio apartment with Freddie Prinze Jr. and Scott Wolf (Party of Five? Ring any bells?). 17 Again and Charlie St. Cloud director Burr Steers describes having to wring the Mickey Mouse out of his star, explaining ”It’s something you go through with a lot of these young Disney actors. Teaching them that when they’re acting, they don’t need to worry so much about being polite.” Some have even suggested that Efron’s recent romp with a cadre of strippers was a deliberate move to distance himself from his baby-faced roots. Hopefully his latest movie, Charlie St. Cloud, will help him do the same. Maybe “Zac Efron” didn’t immediately scream “crazy loner who can see the ghost of his little brother” before, but it sure does now! Efron also passed on a role in the upcoming Footloose remake, thus showing wisdom beyond his years.
So who should Efrom take his career cues from? He doesn’t really have the comedic chops of former teen stars Will Smith or Jason Bateman, at least that we’ve seen. And whatever he does, he shouldn’t try to out Pattinson Robert Pattinson. It just can’t be done. Have you seen that kid brood? Forget it. Our advice for the next wave of the Zac attack? Follow Tom Cruise’s career path….up to a point. Maybe Zac isn’t the funniest guy in the room, but he works like a machine, and has enough charisma and self-confidence keep our eyes vacuum-sealed to the screen every time. So go ahead, branch out into roles where you play the twitchy weirdo, maybe even go to Cruise’s for a motorcycle ride or two. Just whatever you do, steer clear of Scientology. Do you hear us? Don’t even go there.

They grow up so fast don’t they? Vanessa Hudgens is going to be none too happy about this ’cause her BF Zac Efron has now discovered the joys of strip clubs. He and two friends – including High School Musical alum, Corbin Bleu - dropped a lot of cash on lap dances at the Flashdancers Gentlemen’s Club on Broadway, New York City. We’re talking more than $2 grand here (oh to be rich, young and famous) on dancers – down the g-strings of 3 brunettes in particular – and a hell of a lot vodka. And they kept going strong till 3 am. Part-ay!
How did he still look good the next day (we mean in the next couple of hours) at the premiere of his new sap-fest film, Charlie St. Cloud? And why does this strip-clubbing make us happy? Because it does, inexplicably. Maybe it’s because the Zefron is the movie equivalent to apple pie. So clean, perfect and wholesome; he makes us want to take a bite out of him. It’s nice to see a Disney star fall down the chute once in a while!

People are known to take fashion risks at the MTV Movie Awards because unlike other award shows, anything goes. That means you’re just as likely to see glamourous gowns as you are assless chaps (or an assless tiger-print leotard if you’re Ken Jeong). Still, there are some celebrities who know how to combine their version of cool with some serious style, and unfortunately, Ken didn’t make our cut. But Sandra Bullock, Scarlett Johansson and Kristen Stewart did. Check out their dresses and some other winning styles in our Best-Dressed Gallery below. [Photos: Getty Images]
This year’s MTV Movie Awards, hosted by Aziz Ansari, will be just like the Oscars — except sillier, sexier and probably more fun. Christina Aguilera is making her big comeback performance; Katy Perry‘s promising to get naked (don’t hold your breath); the Jersey Shore cast will flaunt their Miami tans; and Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are presenting a new “Eclipse” clip. Stay with us as we break down the hotties and notties of the Movie Awards in our shared chat with MTV and BWE.tv.
Oh, hell yeah. We are 100% behind Russell Brand‘s decision to wear gold boots with a white suit and open shirt to the Get Him To The Greek premiere in LA last night. With Katy Perry vamping it up like a super-villain, this mackadocious outfit was clearly the only way to go—now we’re just worried they’ll blow up the world if they don’t get a billion dollars in 48 hours.
Apparently hesitant to compete with Brand’s swagger, Diddy showed up in casual clothes, joined by his mom— a move that makes us miss the guy who might have brought eight dancers, some doves and a suit actually made of ivory a decade ago. Befitting the premiere of a Judd Apatow production, Greek‘s stars were joined by comedy all-stars like Ed Helms, Kristin Bell, Jon Hamm, Alison Brie and Christopher Mintz-Plasse on the red carpet, as well as Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens and Rosario Dawson. See what they wore in the gallery below.

Watching wild man Trace Cyrus grip his Suite Life Of Zack & Cody girl Brenda Song and swig from his cream soda bottle at NYLON’s Young Hollywood party sure puts sister Miley‘s wrap party lapdance in perspective. How can we expect her to conform to society’s norms with this tattooed hedonist as a role model? Imagine, that much sugar at night…and we’re not even talking about Brenda! With hellcats like Peaches Geldof, Amber Rose, Kristen Cavallari and Zac Efron also in attendance, it’s amazing the roof wasn’t blown clean off. See these stars and more in the gallery below.
