Zac Efron America’s Sweetheart

By: Sahar Mourad


HE has been blessing our screens for almost 10 years now and he just continues to bless us with his amazing acting skills, and beautiful face and eyes. Zac Efron, most commonly known for his role as Troy Bolton in the Disney High School Musical as come far since those days.
Today Zac Efron is far from the high school kid he used to play and has acted, and continues to act in roles which are far better suited for his age, in which case most people are able to relate to. Maybe not all that relatable, but fun nevertheless.
It was his role in High School Musical, which gained Efron recognition amongst the teenagers as both an actor and singer. From there he won a Teen Choice Award (2006), which he shared with co-star Vanessa Hudgens. He was also named People magazine’s 100 Most Beautiful People in 2007.
Zac Efron gained even more popularity after he and Vanessa Hudgens started dating in real life. The two were considered the perfect pair and everyone supported their relationship. Unfortunately, all good things come to an end. Nowadays, we know Zac has a girlfriend, but not much is known about her.
Efron also struggled with his life in early 2013, particularly with alcoholism and substance abuse, but has since cleaned himself up and has been sober since June 2013.
However, Zac hasn’t stopped acting and is featured in Dirty Grandpa, with Robert De Niro.
The movie, which is out on February 11th, is sure to give you lots of laughs and let’s not forget…Zac Efron shirtless.
Efron has a bright future ahead of him, and let’s not hope he won’t stop acting.
