Zaz Efron's First Gay-Press Interview

Zac-Efron-First-Gay-Interview-Out-MagazineIn his first gay-press interview, Zac Efron talks to The Advocate about marriage equality, gay rumors, and why he almost went commando for his new film, The Paperboy.

Read the full inteview at Advocate.com.

Here's a few select quotes:

On gay rumors:

"I don’t like to live in fear about things like rumors and backlash to begin with — that’s the way I was raised — but I just can’t see what’s so wrong about being gay."

On playing a gay role:

"I’d never take a role just for the sake of playing gay, but I’m always looking for a role that’s challenging, different, and entails some risk, so there’s no doubt in my mind that one of those characters will be gay at some point in the future. It’s always interesting to delve into unexplored territory, and that would be a new avenue for me. I definitely wouldn’t be afraid."

On marriage equality:

"It’s an issue that affects so many people in my life — a lot of my close friends and some of the most influential people around me. I just want them all to be happy. It would make me so happy to see them able to live their lives and do what they want to do."

"I’m always looking for a role that’s challenging, different, and entails some risk" - lol, that's why he plays the same vacuous prettyboy in every movie he makes.

It is one thing to interview a celebrity who is a friend and of the gay community on their outlook and involvement with the community. But its another thing when many gay media is guilty of questioning that celebrity on gay rumors and innuendos, the reasons for taking on gay roles or what it felt like being in a same-sex scene. Even if 'the public wants to know', the gay press has a constant desire to validate itself with this line of questioning and need to get out of their TMZ mentality.
