Zac Efron Takes On Hollywood


I wanted to share these recent photos (by Norman Jean Roy) of Zac Efron from the August issue of
Details. Zac's been known as a young heartthrob starring in such movies as the High School Musical franchise, Hairspray & 17 Again. He's now been trying to cast off that image to build a more long lasting career in Hollywood. Last year he starred in the film Me and Orson Welles. He recently starred in the film Charlie St. Cloud. This photo shoot is a little different from the usual ones I post. I'm usually posting pictures of guys dressed up. What do you think of these photos?













P.S. Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers. I really appreciate it. This has definitely been a difficult time in my life. I've been so stressed out. I'm really nervous about the future. I'm not quite sure yet what I'm going to do. I am putting in some job applications. I'm also seeking out some short term work even if I can't find anything more substantial. I'm really considering going back to college. One of the biggest regrets of my life is that I never finished college. I know that's been the main reason in my life why I've gone from one dead end job to another. It's time for a change in my life. I'm almost 40 years old. I can't keep on going on like this. I'm seriously considering going back to college to further my education. I believe that's the best thing for me to do. I'm talking with my family, friends, church, etc. about my studies as well as trying to find some work. Please continue to keep me in your thoughts and prayers. It means so much to me. Thanks. Take care. God bless you.

Definitely all grown up.

Also thinking of you in this trying time! Just keep a positive attitude and know that something will come up!

You know, it's awkward trying to escape the warm safe Uterus of the Disney corporation. Shia LeBoeuf, Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus.... They've all got something to prove in their chosen fields. Britney made it (careerwise that is). Shia seems to be doing pretty well. Here's hoping Zac makes it, too!

Also, keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Sending happy vibes your way. Best of luck!

Going back to college seems like a very good idea, you might enjoy this experience. I always say there's a positive thing in every bad experience. Good luck, I hope you will succeed in everything you set your mind to.

P.S. Zac looks better in these pictures with this hairstyle than in his High School Musical days.

Allison said...

I'm probably one of the few that doesn't think that Zac Efron is super dreamy/wonderful, but I do think that this editorial is gorgeous :)
I've been keeping you in my thoughts and prayers - I hope that whatever you decide to do works out for you - you really deserve the best :) Keep us all posted!

Erika said...

Zac Efron always looks amazing. Love him. Love this editorial!! :)

Josie said...

You could post photos of Zac Efron in a burlap sack and I'd love it. Easily my biggest celebrity crush -- look at those eyes and how he's working these leather jackets! Especially love the brown one.
Wishing you all the luck, Keith!

I am not a huge fan of him. :)

It seems that child stars sometimes need to go away from the film spotlight (do stage or something) then come back to film looking like an adult, maybe different haircut.

It's risky to go out of the public's mind, though, because you might not be asked to return (at least not as a film star).

Although Justin Timberlake made the transition to adulthood while in the spotlight, you'll notice he sports a different haircut than he did as a kid. This helps the audience to view him as a different, yet familiar, person.

It's all about the locks. Sort of.

The best of success, Keith.

Tights Lover said...

Loved the photo shoot.

I hope things are going well for you. I think going back to college is a great idea. It's never too late to go back, I think you'll find it very rewarding when you finish!

It's good to improve/further one's education, so you are on the right road. Good luck with job hunting. xx

zaxonortesus said...

He is trying to step out of the child star spotlight now, that's for sure. It's a very James Dean-esqu photoshoot, no doubt about that. And good luck with everything man.

Mary-Laure said...

He was really cool in Hairspray - such a fun movie.

Hang in there, everyone is with you.

Miss*Kimmy said...

He's so hot. Such handsome looks for his age especially.

lorenabr said...

Good luck :) great idea with the college.
I hope you find a job very soon.


My dear friend Keith!

Go back to college seems to be a very good plan. I am also back to study teaching languages, it is a nice way to keep developing :)))

all my best luck and wishes my sweet friend,



PS _ Zac is gorgeous :)))

i think zac is very photogenic and a lot of it has to do with his great head of hair. seriously, his hair is awesome.

and i think it's a good idea to go back to college. joe namath went back to college after his football career so i think it's definitely doable. good luck with everything!


Stylelover said...

He is all grown up but it suits him perfectly. So Cute.
i hope you get better soon and yes, you should go back to college and finish your studies!!! all the best vibes and happy thought from here!!! wish you all the best!

yyam said...

I love that he's brooding in these photos! :)

Always think positive Keith! I think it's great that you are thinking of going back to college! I applaud you for that. You are in my thoughts!

Lee Oliveira said...

Zac has really come into his own now. From that boy who looked like every other boy to a more rough and ready look thats great to photograph.
Good luck with your job hunting. I know it would be very stressful right now for you but Im sure it will all work out in the end.

ellie said...

Its good to hear from you. Hope you get back on schedule of your education. Thanks so much for the note. Yeap, that Zac can really look excellent in most anything he wears.

sweetpralinemadness said...

I have never seen High School Musical. I have only seen Zac in magazines and don't know much about him.

I'm keeping you in my daily prayers. How are things going? I know things are going to work out. Remember it's always the darkest hour before sunrise. This is just for a season. Prayer can move mountains.

Jessica said...

I think you should try to go back to school and start all over..

simplychic said...

i like his style, and o those eyes!

if you want to go back to college...GO FOR IT! it's never too late to pursue your dreams.

Use this as a time to explore other possibilities...
Try some part-time gigs, see what "fits" you.

We all put on our lives like clothing.
We WEAR our lives for all to see.
Nothing wrong with making a great "first impression" though, eh?

Take care & God bless.
Stay Strong.

Holly said...

There is just something pure goodness about him. It might put some off, but really he's a classic, already.

Good to hear from you. Hope you are staying well and happy. I know its tough, but you will be stronger.

Zuzana said...

Lovely pictures, his eyes are to die for...
Good luck with your job hunt dear Keith; going back to college might not be such a bad idea.;) It is never too late to go back to school - particularly with your kind of motivation.;))
My thoughts are with you,

Keep your head up brother, and look in places you may have not otherwise looked before. You never know what could be around the next corner!
