Misc News Roundup  
Final Weekend Numbers are in from BoxOfficeMojo and The Lorax scored number one again with $38,846,020 which is a reasonable drop of only -44.7%. The cumulative domestic box office gross is $121,724,850. Without adjustments for inflation, this means The Lorax has already become Zac's film with the highest lifetime domestic gross. Not surprising since it is an animated flick, but still nice. The domestic total should eventually end up over $200 million.

Zac will be presenting at the Nick Kids' Choice Awards - THR.

The second part of the Nova interview with Zac was posted - Part 1 and Part 2.

Zac was named #13 on GQ's 30 Most Stylish Under 30. Ridiculous, he should've been in the top 5 at the very least ffs.



This is a really cool fan story from last April about this girl's dad who was sitting next to Zac at a Dodgers game. Please go and read the full story (and see bigger pics) at her blog, but the highlight is:
I told him how jealous I was and that I want to get a picture with him. Next thing I know, my dad sends me a picture of the back of Zac Efron's head with some picture from maybe grade 6 he has of me... I guess the only photo he had in his wallet? Anyways, I got the picture and thought that it was hilarious. Next thing I know I got sent this picture with Zac Efron holding up my little grade 6 embarrassing photo! I was so confused how this had happened, and my dad explained that his friend he was with was laughing so hard about my dad taking a picture with the back of Zac Efron's head, that he tapped him on the shoulder to show him it. He apparently found it hilarious and offered to take a picture WITH my little photo!



On her blog she also describes how her dad met David Oyelowo. This was all before The Paperboy but somehow the dots were all connected and this happened, which in my mind, is so fucking awesome, lol.



Speaking of The Paperboy, more Bayou/Alligator pics cause I'm bored









In my haste, I forgot to add it yesterday but src

It may be an animated movie, but I'm still really happy that it's done SO well.

I always end up loving the pictures we get from The Paperboy set. I don't know why though.

Oh my goodness, that is awesome. And hilarious.

OK, call me Mr. Buzzkill, but I am not amused by all these photos of people yucking it up with the remains of a dead animal, killed for no good purpose and used for entertainment value. Would they do the same with a dead dog?

that's pretty reductive though. i'm not really a fan at all of hunting (esp for sport) but dogs =/= alligators in so, so many ways.

and they weren't killed for no reason, they were killed to reduce the risk of attacks on zac and matt while filming. i think some were also killed (in line with normal hunting rules in louisiana) for the film explicitly. and personally i think they goofed around with it a bit just to become comfortable with a frightening creature that was suddenly co-existing with them. that could be viewed negatively as some sort of man must dominate all nature but you gotta do what you gotta do.

"just to become comfortable with a frightening creature that was suddenly co-existing with them"

Who was intruding into who's environment? Or, who were the real frightening creatures?

I understand the psychology, but I personally would never participate in these kinds of antics just to relieve my anxiety. Even when it is "necessasry" to kill wildlife, show some respect.

Sorry, I should have clarified. I was talking about the pictures with the girl's pictures. Dead animals, not so cool.

Ha ha, GQ didn't mention the sunglasses as part of the stylish ensemble.
