Zac Efron Was Once An Awkward Teen

Zac Efron may be one of the most dashingly good looking dudes in Hollywood (even with his ever-evolving beard) but this just in: He had an awkward phase just like the rest of us.

Perez Hilton unleashed the evidence in the form of a photo of the Charlie St. Cloud star as a crimped-haired 12-year-old at the California State Summer School for the Arts. Hard to believe this is the same Zac we know and love, but can’t you see his good looks just waiting to break out?

What do you think of Zac’s vintage nerd photo? What do you think his girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens makes of it? Weigh in via the comments.
