The 28-year-old actor was recently the subject of an interview in The Guardian, where his Dirty Grandpa director Dan Mazer praised him and his comedic talents.
“To be brutally honest, it was with a certain amount of circumspection that I initially took on Dirty Grandpa. When I heard Zac was already attached, I took a beat. But then I looked at some of his other comic work and I thought, ‘Hang on, he’s really good’ He understands what he is, the difficulty of where he came from, and what it feels like to be hamstrung by all that. He’s unfairly tarred with that brush of being insanely good-looking. You can’t imagine that someone so beautiful could be funny as well. Why would you be? If I looked like that, I wouldn’t worry for a second about being charming or funny. But he does and he is,” Dan told The Guardian. “I like to do improv on set and most of the cast were bona fide comedians, but Zac matched them all punch for punch. I thought he’d be this high-maintenance flibbertigibbet but he was often driving the comedy. He was determined to stretch himself.”

Zac Efron isn’t having much luck when it comes to relationships lately.
The 28-year-old actor opened up about having trouble dating.
“Dating is something I’ll never be able to do,” Zac told British newspaper The Times. “As in the dictionary definition of dating, because one way or another I’ve impacted that person’s life and they’ll soon realize it. … A date has to be very long to dispel whatever people think of me.”
Zac also revealed that he joined Tinder after his breakup with Sami Miro.
“Amazingly, when I signed up for Tinder, nobody swiped me!” Zac said. “They thought [my profile] was fake.”
