Highlights from a few articles

The articles are in Portuguese, so I had to rely on Google translations which are anything but perfect. Here are a few highlights from different articles on top of what we already heard in the videos above and posts before. I hope I got it halfway right.

GQ Brasil noted that his eyes were tired and he didn't sleep on his flight from LA to Brazil. They also pointed out that Zac couldn't keep the schedule due to the turmoil in the store locations despite being prepared for everything they asked him. He was friendly and professional. One thing he wanted to try during his visit was Brazilian Feijoada; the hotel didn't have it on their menu but the chef found a way to make him some anyway.

About fashion:
"I think a good suit has the power to make you more elegant and give you character. I think it's pretty cool with that kind of clothes and I enjoy wearing them."

Zac told GQ that he likes to define his style as somewhere between casual and relaxed and it doesn't exclude a shirt and jeans: "They are the typical clothes walking along the beach," he joked. "It doesn't really matter what type of clothes nor how expensive it is, but to feel comfortable and attractive with what you are wearing. I'm happy with my style, because it is something I created (?). My tip would be: have fun while dressing."

A Cidade talked to Zac about the outcome of the Oscars; Zac said he loved the movie 'The Artist', which won the award for Best Film. "For me, it was really the best film. I found extraordinary." Zac also liked Moneyball.

MSN also had a little chat. Zac seemingly addresses recent dating rumors by saying, "For now I have no girlfriend. I just have friends." He also talked about his adventure with Luciano Huck for the "Cauldron". "I really enjoyed it. He's very funny. I went out with him today and was not familiar with his work, but it was one of the coolest guys I met here. It was a pleasure to be on his show." Zac also said that he is a fan of driver Ayrton Senna. "I saw the documentary on Senna. He is my hero."

The one annoying thing I noticed is that John John doesn't seem to be willing to own up their mistakes with the organization of the day and try to sort of pass it off as Zac was the one cancelling it. They don't say it outright but several of the articles surely had that undertone.

I was told that interview was made; that he never said that.

But anyways, Zac looks sooo happy

The GQ Brasil interview. Maybe I'm wrong for listening to that person

No, it wasn't made up. I even helped the guy who wrote it with questions for Zac :)

lmao Cauldron :PPPP

John John's official comment about what happen was that there was a problem with Zac's helicopter and he couldn't go to Campinas & SP but please, the helicopter took him to both cities (actually, yhe first three pics are from the interview he did for the press in Campinas and not the photocall in SP) so yeah, they just thought we were stupid.

From what I saw, most articles had on their title's that Zac was the one who cancelled and then explained that "there was a problem with the aircraft" or "security reasons"... but the title, the thing most people read, was very misleading. Other than that, everyone who met him said he was very nice. A lot of people thought my friend was Dylan and he almost got mobbed rofl. But he met Zac and even translated some interviews for some tv channels and said Zac was just a very cool guy and seemed sorry for what happened

tl;dr - John John needs to get their shit together.

Oh, I thought those pics were from the evening too since he seems to be wearing the same t-shirt (which is similar but different from earlier in the day). Thanks for the info.

Yeah, it's super annoying that John John can't own it up. I guess for the media it's also more convenient to blame Zac (yk, the "arrogant American actor") instead of a local company, so they are very willing to skew it that way, esp since the statements they get from John John make it easy.

I've seen a few more articles but most quotes overlap or aren't that exciting, so I skipped them.

Yeah, I think most people actually are just reposting the same interview that happened during the photocall but with slightly different translations to portuguese so it will seem be another one.

But, tbf, most tv shows were actually VERY nice about Zac. Only one said that he frustated his fans but they did say it wasn't his fault so I guess it was okay.

That's great about the TV shows. It's just the vibe I got from all those articles which got published after it happened. Not that they outright blamed him anyway but it didn't seem to reflect what really happened.

I'm glad that the day at least ended on a positive note. Everyone from that evening "event" seemed to be fairly happy.

Well it's not like it's the first time something like this has happened, and it's not like he's the first celebrity to have gone through it. What's important is that Zac is exculpated and while John John hasn't taken ownership for the chaos, I would point out that no business ever does. Did BP go "my bad" about the oil spill in the Gulf? No. So John John is behaving like a normal corporation - passing the buck.

im really curious what his answers are in the first interview..does anyone know?
Beejeezbee on March 1st, 2012 10:39 pm (UTC)
Sorry for the temporary video mishap. Cross-posting went wrong.

Also, I've heard from a "reliable" source that Zac wasn't supposed to be the one to come here, John John asked for another celeb but when they bailed, John John had to look for one with a Brazilian Visa and I guess Zac qualified and they paid a lot of money lol. So maybe that is also why they wre so unprepared.

Help Please
Hi, can you translate the first inter view for me please? I'm really stuck! My twitter is @AmyJohnson1993 by the way.

Well I guess that clears up whether Dylan went or not. Just glad to see his Dad went with him. I've seen so many people being like "Is that Dylan?" lol

It's sad that John John seems to be putting the blame for their disorganization on Zac, especially since he took the time to make such a whirlwind trip.
countessm3countessm3 on March 2nd, 2012 12:48 am (UTC)
If Dylan was there, I'd know about it. I can spot a hot man 100 miles away. My gays use me for recon...
The Writers Denmusewriter on March 2nd, 2012 01:01 am (UTC)
Haha, love it!

My answer to picture #7 is yes, please. Quid Pro Quo.

no way Zac was anything but accomodating, accessible and charming, john john

glad he got to have his sought after dish, brazillian feijoada

hhmmmm...sounds delish!

Yay, more tongue!

The comment about Zac subbing for another celeb supports my point, that he was hired for a promotional appearance, that this won't be his first continuing fashion "spokesmodel" campaign.

The blame game highlights the potential value of the new Twitter account. This would be the perfect time for Zac to issue and explanatory statement, telling everyone what happened and how sorry he is that everything got screwed up.
