Access Hollywood Interview (text only)
Zac Efron says he’s spoken to pal Rumer Willis, following the recent news that the actress’ mom was seeking treatment for her health and exhaustion.

“I have, yes,” Zac told Access Hollywood Live’s Kit Hoover at the junket for “Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax” in Los Angeles on Monday, when asked if he’d spoke to Demi’s daughter.

“She’s doing OK, she’s doing fine. It’s tough what she’s going through right now, but she seems to be handling it really well,” he added of his friend Rumer.

On Monday, Zac was in good spirits as he promoted his March 2-due animated feature film, “Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax,” where he stars as the voice of 12-year-old Ted.

But he told Kit it wasn’t easy to slip into character.

The actor had wrapped up his role as marine Logan Thibault in the April 20-due “The Lucky One,” when he was brought on to play Ted, a young man who sets out to win the heart of Audrey (voiced by Taylor Swift), the girl of his dreams, by finding a tree, and in turn, discovering the story of the Lorax.

“I had just finished filming ‘[The] Lucky One,’ I was 15 pounds heavier,” Zac told Kit. “Then I had to come in and do these voices and he was 12.”

Zac’s cure for his adult voice was a healthy drink and hard work.

“I was – early in the morning – drinking green tea, trying to get my voice up high – as high as humanly possible,” he smiled.

The star said he actually took inspiration from another actor in trying to get the voice just right.

“He’s a real spontaneous, fun loving guy, but I sort of pictured him like Michael J. Fox,” Zac explained. “He’s really high energy.”

Ted has his heart set on Audrey and Zac said his character’s journey in the film brought back nice memories from his own past.

“You’re still figuring out what love is at that age, but it’s best time in the world,” Zac reminisced. “Watching him, you know, try and find this tree for the love of his life, it’s very romantic. It’s a noble journey he’s on."

Also if you want it, here is a better version of the CN Hall of Game TV Spot.

The first picture is by far better than the second picture. I feel bad that he has to have his hair like that just because he did 2 days of reshoots for The Paperboy.

The promo for this is so cute tho.

Just picturing Zac preparing to make his voice REALLY high is hilarious (:

I remember Zac always refused to talk about people in his personal life..still, thoughtful thing to say about Demi

That's because he's dating neither of them!

Haha, Demi's available and would fit his recent May-October pairings. Just for laughs, he should take her to The Lorax premiere; what a celeb-gossip and paparazzi firestorm that would set off. But since he's such a sweetie, I suppose he'll escort Betty White.

So, he did have his hair dyed for the Paperboy reshoots. Hope he dyes it back to darker color before he starts to appear in TV shows and other promos. I don't understand why they made him go blond for The Paperboy. It's not like his character was described as a blond in the book.

I don't see the problem. I kind of like the lighter hair.
