Reports of Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens‘s break-up may have been premature. A source tells Us Weekly that Zac and Vanessa were making out at the LA club Eden Friday night. “The two showed up around 10:45 p.m. through the back entrance with a group of friends and were holding hands at different points throughout the night…They were kissing on the lips and seemed to be enjoying their night.” Wouldn’t it be weirder if they were kissing and didn’t seem to be enjoying the night?
Anyone who’s even been young should realize this “broken up/back together” binary is rarely applicable for people in their early twenties. How many college couples split up, celebrate their birthday solo in Vegas, get back together, split up again and wind up making out at a club a week or so after the guy vacationed with Rumer Willis? All of them. You can almost hear Vanessa’s friends’ eyes rolling.

Amidst the People’s Choice Awards‘ teleprompter flubs, boring video packages, and less-than-funny hosting was some surprisingly foxy fashion. Traditionally celebs wait to pull out the big style guns for the Golden Globes or Oscars (or any award show with a televised red carpet) but Taylor Swift, Kristen Stewart, Kim Kardashian and Selena Gomez looked every bit the Hollywood starlets tonight at the PCAs. Swift rocked her usual feminine, soft, retro look while Kardashian wore a shimmery curve-hugging dress. KStew looked better than ever in an ultra-mini Reem Acra dress and sky-high heels.

Did we miss any of your favorite looks of the night? Let us know in the comments.
This is a rumor that makes us arch an eyebrow, unlike the one about Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock that makes us want to bounce around on pogo sticks. Like the alleged “quality time” BullRey have been spending together, Zac Efron and Rumer Willis apparently, have been enjoying much of the same.
The newly single Zefron is on vacay, for some strange reason, with Rumer’s whole family in Turks & Caicos. They’re all holed up at The Parrot island Resort where Zac and Rumer rang in the New Year a deux looking, as a source revealed, “extremely cozy”. Of course they’re going to look “cozy”. Vacation pheromones are the the most potent kind! Plus it’s probably all simpatico there what with Zac and Ashton Kutcher basically being the same age!
But if this is going to turn out to be more than just a holiday hook-up, then Rumer has stiff competition from Zac’s ex of like, a billion years in Hollywood-time, Vanessa Hudgens. A source has totally nixed the possibility of the holidaying hotties getting together because of Baby V’s loving ex-but-not-quite clutches. “They speak every single day… they wanted some free time, but they’ll get back together”, predicted the source.

Once upon a time, Zac Efron‘s hair was even more of a big deal than Justin Bieber‘s. That time has passed though, because now that Efron is a fairly legit actor, he’ll do what it takes to commit to his craft, even if that includes shaving off his signature locks.
Efron just wrapped filming in Louisiana on his latest movie, The Lucky One, in which he plays a Marine. He’s seen here posing with a fan and sporting his new military buzz cut. Efron didn’t want to go it alone, however, and was able to convince the crew of the film to shave their heads too for charity. Thirty crew members reportedly shaved their heads, and for each one, Efron made a donation to Kingsley House, a home for kids in New Orleans. A spokeswoman for Efron said he was motivated to help because “he wanted to do something for a New Orleans charity since he had such a nice time shooting there.”

Bad breakups for us involve eating way too much ice-cream, getting disastrous haircuts, buying more shoes than we can afford, and if it’s really bad, then all of the above. But that’s why we’re, well, us, and Vanessa Hudgens post-Zac Efron, is the bomb.
Miss Hudgens just celebrated her 22nd birthday, and lets just say she didn’t spend it sniveling under a duvet. The girl just split up with her boyfriend of 5 years, so we were totally prepared to cut her some time off from the I’m-a-celebrity-I’m-perfect train. Vanessa can now snap her fingers and sass “In yo’ face” to us, because she brought on the awesome at her happy-happies celebration in *tadah* VEGAS! Ã‚Â She looked super-slinky at Pure nightclub in a completely unforgiving silver dress that wrapped around her like a bandage. Besties Ashley Tisdale and Brittany Snow were right there partying with her. The Zefron wasn’t… but he’s totally going to look at the pictures and kick himself on his perfect behind.
And more props to not-so-Baby V when she was inevitably questioned about the breakup. Her pert response was, “We’re good” and a thumbs up. That calls for a round of applause and a ‘nicely done’! Happy Birthday, Vanessa!
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.
