– Zac Efron really is a lucky fella. Not only does he having his new flick, The Lucky One, hitting theaters on Friday… But Mr. Efron, 24, has some really steamy scenes in the flick with his beautiful costar Taylor Schilling, 27. “We had great chemistry,” Zac told me at last night’s Lucky’s premiere in Hollywood.
The sexy work didn’t come until they had been working together for about four or five months. “We knew each other every which way,” Efron said, adding, “It felt great.” (When I mention that he has similar scenes with Nicole Kidman in the upcoming The Paper Boy, Efron beamed, “Yeah, hot blondes!”)
“We were so comfortable with each other,” Schilling said. “Honestly, I was more nervous about some of the more emotional scenes then I was about that.”
Efron impressed offscreen as much as he did on. Said Courtney J. Clark, who plays Efron’s sister in the flick, “He taught the little boys who play my sons in the movie how to peel a banana like a monkey.”
Better than teaching them how to remove a bra, right?
Efron and Schilling made for quite a pretty pair last night as both were wearing Calvin Klein. Also at the premiere were the film’s Blythe Danner, Jay R. Ferguson and Riley Thomas Stewart, director Scott Hicks, Nicholas Sparks, 90210 hottie Matt Lanter and Efron’s High School Musical costar Ashley Tisdale.
