Celebrate Zac Efron’s Birthday with 28 Shirtless Photos
Has it really been almost 10 years since the debut of High School Musical? Thanks to the Disney trilogy, we were introduced to the man crush everyday that is Zac Efron. Zac is ringing in his 28th birthday today (Oct. 18) so make sure you launch the gallery above to see 28 of his hottest shirtless pics.
Zac has been a hollywood heartthrob ever since he took on characters such as Troy Bolton in the HSM trilogy, Link Larkin in Hairspray, and Charlie St. Cloud in well, Charlie St. Cloud. In 2011 Zac was asked to play Ren in the revival of Footloose but turned it down to take on more mature roles. Which is exactly what we have been seeing from him over the past few years.
We have seen him emerge as more complex characters such as a U.S. marine sergeant in The Lucky One, a comedic relief in New Years Eve, a handsome doctor in Parkland, and a rambunctious frat boy in Neighbors. Zac has strayed away from his musical days and has proved his commitment to complex characters.
There was a lot of concern from fans and critics when he decided to take on the role of a party animal fraternity brother in the 2014 movie Neighbors due to his rehab stint earlier that year. Those close to Zac were concerned that the party scene, even it was just for filming, would lead him back to his old ways. Zac checked into rehab twice for cocaine and alcohol addiction. Fortunately he has been clean since rehab, strayed away from the party scene, and has been in a healthy relationship.
For just over a year now, Zac has been dating model Sami Miro. They seem to be very happy together, and keep their relationship under wraps and out of the news. They have been spotted grabbing lunch and dinner at various restaurants in LA and New York, and even adopted a puppy together earlier this year. Zac posted this photo of them to his instagram account and they seem to be extremely happy together.
Zac’s current movie, We Are Your Friends, hit theaters August 28th and tells the story of Cole Carter (Efron) an aspiring DJ and how he gets his big break with one track. Check out the trailer below!
