Behind the Scenes, Not Up Front

Here is some behind the scenes footage Details magazine shot of High School Musical darling and their upcoming cover boy Zac Efron. Listen for him to twice use the adjective “classy” (which frequently says more about the user than the thing described) and then circuitously answer Leonardo DiCaprio to the question “Who was your first celebrity crush?”

They’re so cute when they’re this intent on seeming masculine!

No. 1 jujubees says:

I really hate it when Zac reveals himself. He needs to keep that under wraps because he’s making me queasy. I do have to say I like him so much better without the foundation and lashes. That Zac, she’s a natural beauty.

No. 2 Lisa(#1) says:

I sort of innately hate Leonardo DiCaprio as well! OMG you guys, Zack (I like it better with a K, so 80s!) and I have so much in common!

I think he looks good here. Like a young John Stamos. And we all know that Uncle Jessie gets hotter the older he gets.

It could the the other way and he could bloat up like Lance Bass. Or that may have been his bad nose job.

I love that he says Details had some really classy people on the cover, then they show a picture of Vin Diesel on the cover. Are they poking fun at themselves? I know when I think “classy” I always think Vin Diesel.

In that case, they should have had Britney’s new boyfriend on the cover.

Or maybe they’re poking fun at Zac … hasn’t there been rumors that Vin is in the closet too?

No. 7 fuschia deviant says:

You know, I really, really hate to admit it, but when you get rid of some of the makeup and scruff him up a bit…he’s gorgeous. I like that he’s not looking as much like a mannequin now.

He looks like a cross between Jared Leto, John Stamos (as already mentioned above), and Morrissey to me.

What is this shit? Now YouTube has commericals? Not classy.

As for Zac…Gay, Gay, Gay, Gay, Gay! I’ve never seen someone so afflicted with GayFace.

No. 9 james_boston says:

As much as he annoys me, he’s kinda cute. I can’t wait ’til “High School Musical: The College Years” bombs and he’s starring in “Shaving Ryan’s Privates IX”.

While the removal of foundation and fake lashes is an improvement, I still don’t find him the least bit attractive.

No. 13 blah says:

I love how he says that he likes to look for inspiration from people back in the day when it comes to dressing. The only person he could think of was Frank Sinatra “and all those guys”. I don’t think he could name another actor if he tried.

Posted: Jan 15, 2008 at 11:35 am
No. 14 jujubees says:

Really? Because it sure doesn’t translate to his clothes. Didn’t Frank and all those guys were snappy ass suits? I don’t recall having an, aeropostal/forever 21, phase.

No. 15 MaryMac says:

OK-he CLEARLY states that he basically was jealous of Leo because he was this young guy who was constantly being followed by girls. Um…that’s a pretty hetero thing to say. What’s with everyone so wanting Zac to be gay? If he is, so what? It’s not like any of you would ever have a chance with him anyway, gay or straight. I just think he seems like a sweet kid with a lot of talent. He can can sing, dance, act and is soooo cute. We can all dream about him in our own way, I guess, but enough talk about him being gay or not. Who cares???

Juje: didn’t you know that Great Lash mascara was formulated specifically for the Rat Pack? They were also way into distressed jeans and tee shirts.

No. 17 jujubees says:

Oh, MaryMac, there is never enough of that to quench our black souls.

Now that I think about it. I bet Frank wore. Seven jeans and often mouth kissed Dean Martin. They were close like that.

No. 18 james_boston says:

OMG! MaryMac has laid down the teenybopper law! I love it when 12-year old girls like her come to Mollygood because we get to destroy their fantasies about their secretly G-A-Y crushes! Mary, Zac is gayer than all Republicans combined. Not to worry though…I’m sure that he probably can perform with a woman if he absolutely has to. We’ll see when he ends up leaking his sex tape with Vanessa Hudgens to prove his heterosexuality.

And I won’t even go into the rumors about Zac and Corbin Bleu…

No. 19 jujubees says:

I feel for MaryMac. I myself had a thing for George Michael. It’s a pain I understand oh so well. She may also end up dating the boys who, “respect her too much”, to do anything other than hold hands.
If you hear a teenage boy say that then you know your a beard.

If your teenage boyfriend loves to do your make up, you know your a beard.
If your teenage boyfriend loves playing with your hair, you know your a beard.
If your teenage boyfriend wants to enter dance contests with you, you know your a beard.

No. 20 james_boston says:

LOL Ju…that last one especially is funny ’cause it’s true.

I too dated girls I “respected too much”. I really feel bad ’cause I led them on just so people could see I was dating a girl. Then I would pretend I lost interest…God, I was a dick. College was great though cause I made sure we were high on ecstasy or something else that I could blame my lack of excitement on. Good times.

No. 21 ilnazhad says:

Um, Cord, didn’t you have a post on how annoying it was bringing dates to see Titanic because of Leo? And you do use the word classy a bunch, too.
He doesn’t “try to be masuline.” He knows fake eyelashes aren’t considered phallic. If he were trying to hide the fact that he wasn’t stereotypically masculine, he would stop wearing make-up. Easy thing to do. The fact that he doesn’t care is laudable.
I give this bullshit post a 1 out of ten. (I give almost all of your others a 10, though.)

I would buy your book, also, it should be required reading in some kind of health class
where girls learn about their period. Or maybe in an english class so boys can benefit too,
from the class discussions.

What the eff IS High School Musical, exactly? A musical? A soap opera? A movie? A tv series? Music videos? God I can’t keep up with these crazy gay teenagers.

No. 35 james_boston says:

“High School Musical” is a Disney musical about the unspoken, forbidden love between a curly-haired African American Cutie (Cordin Bleu) and his White B-baller pal (Efron.) It’s the story of my life, minus the not-so-fabulous singing and dancing.

No. 36 Be Adequite says:

Yah right I bet you sing and dance better than I do, not that I care that I suck at it, still do it anyways

So they’re on the third musical then? And kids like this? Good lord I feel bad for the crap parents have to pay for and listen to.

No. 37 james_boston says:

The second one actually…it was the highest rated cable movie/show in history so they’re talking about making the next one a theatrical movie. And the soundtracks to both movies are multi-platinum. I’m 26 so I probably should not know this.

No. 38 queencrone says:

When I was a girl we used to do this two partner hand clapping thing to rhymes. (or maybe it was jump rope…) One of the rhymes was about “Miss
MaryMac, all dressed in black”..and I can’t for the life of me remember it. This poster here
@ #15 has got me trying to recall all day. Damb it.

No. 39 janice says:


Miss MaryMac, Mac, Mac,
All dressed in black, black, black,
With silver buttons, buttons, buttons,
All down her back, back, back
She asked her mother, mother, mother,
For fifty cents, cents, cents,
To see the elephant, elephant, elephant.
Jump over the fence, fence, fence.

It’s longer, but I was a hyperactive child so we never got past that point.

He jumped so high, high, high
He touched the sky, sky, sky.
And he didn’t come down, down, down
‘Til the fourth of July, ly, ly.

No. 41 Lisa(#1) says:

It jumped so high, high, high
It touched the sky, sky, sky
And it didn’t come back, back, back
Till the fourth of July, Lie, Lie.

That is how we did it any how. We loved it because there was this girl in our class named Mary Mack. In second grade that = awesomeness!

Posted: Jan 15, 2008 at 4:24 pm
No. 42 Trixie says:

Or maybe it’s “he didn’t come back, back, back” since that rhymes with Mary Mack.

No. 43 yourmom says:

Trixie, we sang “down, down, down” too. I mean it only makes sense after he jumped so high, high, high, he touched the sky, sky, sky

No. 44 Lisa(#1) says:

It probably just depends on where you grew up. Expecting a homogeneous jump rope rhyme is well, like expecting everyone to have the same Miss Suzie! But I love that yourmom expects logic out of it, that tickles me. Because of course that is logical. And of course I was like 7.
