Just as with every handsome Hollywood hunk, Zac Efron has been dancing around gay rumors for years. Tabloids have speculated that the actor’s relationship with fellow Disney star Vanessa Hudgens was a fraud and media outlets have been relentless with challenging his sexuality.
But Efron, 24, recently talked to the Advocate about the rumors and his views on the LGBT community.
The "High School Musical" star said he is "incredibly grateful and honored" by his gay fans.
"I’m extremely aware of the support I’ve gotten from you guys over the years, and it’s amazing that it’s taken this long to sit down and actually discuss it, but please know that it hasn’t gone unappreciated," he said.
The actor also talked about his upcoming movie "The Paperboy," where he strips down to his underwear and dances with Nicole Kidman. He said he is fine with gay men getting excited about his skimpy role and said he finds it "very flattering." Full story here via Edge!
