There was a time I didn’t find Zac Efron attractive. In fact, I even wrote a post about it, “5 Guys Everyone Finds Smokin’ Hot… BUT Me.” Of course that was back in 2010. What a difference three years make. Now 25-years-old, Efron has matured into one fine looking man. He looks simply dashing for Flaunt magazine’s Men’s Spring Fashion 2013 issue shot by photographer Ruven Afanador.
What makes him even sexier, IMHO, is that he’s thankful for his past. While most young adults want to diss and distance themselves from projects that propelled them to teen superstars, the former Disney actor not only acknowledges his previous work but is thankful for it. Well done, Zac. I hate it when people get too big for their britches. In his interview with the publication, the The Lucky One actor talks about HSM, his quest to make good movies and how he doesn’t like to complain about his life. Check out photos and quotes from his issue below.
“But here’s the one thing about High School Musical, that a lot of people forget or don’t realize. It affected a lot of people, its resonance, culturally, was massive … and at the same time, it was in every sense of it, the luckiest break in the world. The wrong thing to do—and that’s what all these interviews now are trying to get me to say— is to turn on it, to like sh– on it, call it crap. But that’s insane. There are hundreds of people who began doing one thing when they were younger, who go on to develop and refine and shape their vision, as they get older, and other concerns—like fame, or money, take a back seat to other ones.”
If the Smash thing doesn’t work out for the ladies, someone needs to cast this lovely trio for a musical incarnation of Charlie’s Angels. Can’t you just picture them parading around in glittery dresses belting out tunes while solving Broadway-related crimes? I can ;) Can’t be worse than ABC’s failed reboot of the iconic 70s series last year.
Entertainment Weekly tapped Katharine McPhee, Megan Hilty and Jennifer Hudson for their Winter Television Preview issue. Say what you will about American Idol being irrelevant, but the show does discover and create stars. Pretty amazing that two alums were picked to grace the cover instead of a long list of other stars including Oscar and Emmy winners. Check out more photos of each of the ladies below.
Jennifer Hudson should be thanking her ‘lucky’ stars that she wasn’t asked to put on a heinous wig for this fashion spread. Remember that tragedy that was Britney Spears’ Lucky cover last month. EPIC FAIL. The Oscar-winning actress definitely dodged a bullet there. Wearing H&M, 7 For All Mankind and DKNY, Hudson beams on Lucky’s January 2013 issue snapped by photographer Ruven Afanador.
The publication couldn’t have picked a better person to kick off 2013 with than the wickedly awesome Miss Hudson. The 31-year-old has a few big projects lined up in the new year. Not only does her highly-anticipated guest starring role on Smash begin in February, but the R&B singer is dropping a new album. Reportedly, super producer Redone is working heavily with Hudson for her third studio effort. If that wasn’t enough to keep her busy, the stylish celebrity will continue working on her recently-debuted fashion line. Check out a few quotes from her interview discussing this and much more below.
“The first time I was asked to lose weight [on American Idol], I was like, ‘What??’ Where I come from, I was never considered particularly heavy.” After a number of crash-diet attempts, Hudson found success with Weight Watchers because it wasn’t about Hollywood-style deprivation. “You have what you’re craving,” she says. “Chocolate is what I love—I have it every day.”
