Zac Efron appeared at the Cinema Society screening of his new movie The Lucky One at the Crosby Street Hotel in New York City on Thursday (April 20). The 24-year-old looked handsome in a black suit and white shirt. The movie has some steamy love scenes and Zac admitted he was embarrassed when his mom Starla was in the audience watching too.
He told People, “We saw the film together and I was kind of squirming. Even though she was a couple of seats down from me, I tried to duck out during those scenes because it was too embarrassing. Obviously I’m acting, but knowing that my mom and my family were watching is kind of awkward. There’s really no way around it.”
Talking about a sexy shower scene – Zac said his mom laughed about it.
“She was just laughing about it in a good way. She said, ‘That’s my boy!’ I think she was proud of me at the end of it, even if it was weird for her to watch. My mom is my biggest supporter.”
The High School Musical alum adds, “She’s always giving me tips like that. My mom is the No. 1 person who has taught me to be courteous towards women, to always be respectful and polite to them, and to always lead with your heart.”
