Zac Efron looks smokin’ hot in the new issue of PARADE. The cover boy also sat down with the magazine and talked about girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens, national parks, Maui, and of course, his new film Charlie St. Cloud.
“(I) kicked off the summer by taking my little brother, Dylan, on a graduation trip to Hawaii,” Zac stated when asked about Maui. ”He’s going to college next year, and I’ve been working very hard, so we haven’t been able to see each other as much as we would have liked to in the past few years.”
“We hiked through the inner jungle in Maui, and you come across these really beautiful spots. We found this hidden place where there was an enormous waterfall and cliff jump. It was about a thirty-five foot drop.”
“Once you’ve done it, the funny part is trying to convince someone else to jump off, too,” Zac explained. ”I’m the one who’s always saying, ‘Go for it, go for it, jump!’ And then when you come up out of the water, you feel fantastic.. The first thing I do every morning is cannonball into the pool. It’s the best way to wake up.”
When asked about what else he wants to accomplish this summer, Zac told PARADE that he really wants to see a national park. “I’m a big fan of Bear Grylls and Man vs. Wild,” he continued. ”I like to backpack, filter my own water, make a fire. But I bring packaged food, I’m not setting squirrel traps.”
Meanwhile, Zac told the mag that Vanessa is playing Mimi in Rent at the Hollywood Bowl in August. Zac added, “It’s the role of a lifetime for her.”
