I think this must have been from a round table or mini press conference in London because several outlets are quoting the kissing machine, lol but Metro.co.uk seems to have a fairly complete version on their site:
New Year’s Eve has intersecting story-lines. What is yours about?

I play a scrappy, self-absorbed bike messenger who has a lot of connections around town. He knows how to get what he wants and uses people. He meets Michelle [Pfeiffer, co-star] who is the polar opposite: very timid and not living life to the full. She recruits Paul, my character, to take her around New York and help her accomplish all her past New Year’s resolutions. He shows her how to live life a little bit and at the same time he starts to fall for her.

From USA Today:
NYE's most unlikely couple: That's up for audiences to decide, but Efron steals the show in NYE playing a cocky bike messenger who fulfills the wish list of a timid secretary (Pfeiffer). Breaking the ice with the famous actress was easier this time for Efron. "When we were doing Hairspray, I was very young and very shy around her," Efron explained. On NYE, now a bit older, Efron sharpened his acting skills around the pro — to mixed results. "Any time I would try and improv or throw a challenge at her in any way she would come back and just school me," he laughed.

DeNiro and a tiny bit on 'The Paperboy'

I'm going to do an HQ/Favs/Video post for the NYC Premiere tonight, once more pictures are up on fansites. But for now... I think what picture Zac was looking forward to most (well maybe second only to just one of the two of them, lol)... him and DeNiro:



From bloomberg.com, which said this as well, "One guest asked Zac Efron to dance. 'Twist my arm,' Efron said. 'I will if you can find Michelle Pfeiffer,' he added, referring to his on-screen dance partner."

Also, from E!'s Marc Malkin, Zac being cagey on The Paperboy and Nicole Kidman:
"It's high-class problems," Efron quipped when I asked him at the New Year's premiere what it was like to go from Pfeiffer to Kidman.

Of locking lips with Pfeiffer, he smiled, "I'll just say I am very happy. It was a lot of takes."

Efron kept it tight-lipped when it came to Paperboy details, but did say that his and Kidman's characters' relationship "is very complicated."

So, could there be a steamy scene or two?

"It's fun," Efron teased. "We get to really have some fun."
