People Mag's Most Amazing Bodies List/Cover  
From People.com's Most Amazing Bodies preview:



ZAC EFRON

Alo-ha! The High School Musical star, 22, graduates to sex symbol – and tops PEOPLE's list – after showing off his ripped form in the Hawaiian surf recently. "My fail-safe is to go to the gym for an hour," the actor, who appears (shirtless!) in the summer drama Charlie St. Cloud, has said.


FYI: I am pretty sure if he's at the top of the list it means he'll be on the cover :D

ETA: ty carol :D

these pictures certainly top my favorite set list :)

do they make a new photoshoot for this kind of things or they just use pap pics?

sometimes yes, sometimes no. i think because the hawaii papz picture sales were restricted (and so expensive), that is a sign people basically bought them as an exclusive. so probably they will just be using those for zac.

ok, thanks :)

Fantastic! Nice little start to Charlie promo I have to say ;)

I think it's a great cover and all but I have mixed feelings about it.

Zac is to the point in his career where he wants to be acknowledged for something other than his blue eyes and cut physique. As amazing as they are and they are amazing, they are not going to give him longevity as a serious actor in hollywood.

I really hope this isn't the beginning of CSC promo because I'm not going to see Zac the gorgeous guy I've been seeing him for years. I'm going hoping to see Zac the blossoming serious leading actor.

true, but i doubt this is "part of CstC's promo plan."

more likely i think People took advantage of the new pics.....he probably would have been on the list anyway. :)

fortunately for them/us we have new pics that just further prove the point!

True.. I'm also a bit sad about them continuing to paint him as the pretty boy with nothing else to offer :\

I totally agree with you.

I think it is a really complicated issue.

I don't think that having a fit body or being recognized for it is necessarily a detriment... unless that becomes all you are famous for like Kellan Lutz or, to some extent, Taylor Lautner.

For Zac, who works so hard on his acting and the business side of things, I don't think he risks that. Yes, he needs to be acknowledged for his acting skills but that is something only acting well in movies can bring. And as long as he keeps stretching (and succeeding), people will see that not just his body, even if he occasionally is guilty of promo-whoring out his abs.

Plus I think being fit is a part of his personality and getting outside and working out make him happy. So I don't know how you ask him to not take advantage of that. I mean, you can say let's not have shirtless shots or whatever, but idk, that seems so stuffy almost.

It is wise though, that he usually talks about enjoying fitness as opposed to just focusing on having the best abs. I feel like that takes the emphasis off looks and puts it on his personality which is important for longevity.

I think there is something else to consider though... he doesn't really have a male demographic. Being fit and having an athletic and strong body, is important in the sense that males need to not see him as a tween-favorite girlish wimp. So although the abs shot serve those who drool over him as well, I think showing that he is not meek helps him with the males too, even if they express this as jealousy, lol.

In truth, all of the superstar actors have had to balance being ridiculously attractive with being an excellent actor.

And if that is the path that he wants to take, so far, Zac has created a good balance for himself, I think.

Poor intern?

Wouldn't mind spending a couple of hours over those pics.

I Agree with Betty. I don't think this for CSC Promo.
