Golfing plus more hotel pics (if you want them)

eta: there are more golfing pics at AD.


TBH, I was not online yesterday most of the day cause my sister was here... inopportune timing, ik. And looking at the pics now, I mean... my personal opinion is it is kind of a complicated thing.

He knows it is a risk and he knows they've photographed him before at his hotel... so I think he tried to protect himself somewhat, but he shouldn't not enjoy his balcony because paparazzi exist so I think there was a level of understanding what might happen. And let's be real. He plays the paparazzi game just like ANYONE in Hollywood. So a few shirtless pics here and there are no big deal. Knowing or accepting that is the case isn't a horrible thing. It is just the way it is.

That said, I don't think he really expected them to be able to see into his hotel room or that they'd actually takes pics of him inside... the latter is like, bro you know they'll do anything.

Privacy is a slippery slope really, where does the expectation of privacy begin or end? Even without paparazzi, that port is really heavily-trafficked with ferries and tourists. So there was always a risk of voyeurs taking pics, even just for normal people. Also people post legitimately private pics of him with his friends and claim it's no big deal but then won't post this? I make exceptions but don't try to pretend you are above certain things when you aren't.

But anyway. I sort am of the opinion logically fans either accept and ogle them all or you say any pics on the balcony are an invasion of privacy and look at none. But I suppose it is not so black and white for most people, so I've chosen for this site a compromise which is I've left off the ones inside his room and I've left off the boring ones cause they are boring, lol.

Also now, thanks to livejournal's new spoiler cut, you get to choose yourself whether you want to see the hotel pics or not. Under the cut, there is a spoiler cut which you can click on to see the pictures. Your choice, it's all on you :)

[click at your own discretion]maybe it is because i'm at panera right now and they are playing mozart,
but i keep scrolling through and envisioning an opera based on zac's dramatic sock-putting-on and construction of his fortress, lol.

tbh i'm kind of dying about the trees... because the branches are at totally the wrong height to help cover anything ~untoward~.

You would think the hotel would have a "proper" solution for this problem. Zac is not the first celeb to stay there.

Bet on It redux - that first pic is freaking hilarious.

I'm kind of torn to be honest between the 'wow what an invasion of his privacy' and the 'dude, the window was wide open' lol.

I don't know...mostly I just find it really amusing. Even moreso when I see people claiming that it's an obvious PR stunt. People will make a conspiracy theory out of anything.

"mostly I just find it really amusing. Even moreso when I see people claiming that it's an obvious PR stunt. People will make a conspiracy theory out of anything."

As I said recently in another context, the human mind seeks to detect order in apparent chaos. When something totally inexplicable happens (see also: condom on the runway and the preposterous National Enquirer story [there has to be *some* explanation]), we want to perceive a reason. Therefore these nudey pics must be an intentional publicity stunt.

As someone who has worked in PR, I can assure you that this was not a publicity stunt, unless Zefron's people hired the photographer, because you don't set up a stunt when there is no guarantee that someone will be getting good photos.

My theory: It was a long flight, busy days, late nights, too early in the morning, and our guy was just a bit addled and slipped up. Or, he just didn't give a damn.

It's. Interesting that you say that because I was thinking the same thing. I think we're to quick to assume that he actually gives a damn about these pics. He's an actor, honestly we were gonna see his butt at some point, so maybe he just brushed it off and put some towels up. I would like to think he isn't that sensitive, and isn't crying in his hotel room about this whole thing.

Oh he for sure isn't crying in his hotel room. He most likely brushed it off. I think my problem more is the fact that that was an invasion of privacy. Thats what really pisses me off.

I don't even care about the pics of him in his boxers, but the fact that they took pics of him taken and were able to post them online. THAT is what gets to me.
Nicole Millerkellycefron on April 8th, 2012 10:50 pm (UTC)
Yeah they did go too far. That's my problem with the papz in general, I feel like taking pics of someone out and about is perfectly fine. This is Hollywood and like she said in the post Zac knows how to play the game with pictures like anyone else, but when you start invading a persons personal space that's just disgusting and should be punishable by law. There has to be limits set to what they can and can not do and they definitely need to be enforced better, especially when it comes to what they post online for the world to see.

Exactly!

All I have to say about these pics are

Get some. Touch yourself freely.

Fans honestly shouldn't get so involved in his life. It's ridiculous what some of you fans say, as if you could advise him on these things. If he wants to touch himself infront of a camera, let him without thinking it was an accident. He's a guy, let him live.

Taking a moment to enjoy the golfing pictures, as well as his funny looking socks that I love (:

"his funny looking socks"

That's the picture that should be making news. What are those things? Did the hotel provide them? I can't imagine that he packed them for the trip.

His socks are the best part.

ROTFLMAO - taking pictures of the guys taking pictures is EXACTLY what I would've done too. He's too funny!!
abigail80831abigail80831 on April 8th, 2012 09:55 pm (UTC)
I REALLY do hate how when something random like this happens people all of a sudden jump on that it was a PR stunt. Like HELLO, stupid things happen somethimes. Not EVERYTHING is done for PR.

I truly don't think this was a PR stunt at all, I believe he truly did just slip up and dropped his towel to early before getting inside his hotel room.

Also do all the rooms over look the river? Why didn't they just move him to a different room where the paps couldn't shoot him?
Nicole Millerkellycefron on April 8th, 2012 10:55 pm (UTC)
Being that he's a celebrity they can't just put him in any room because of security reasons. All the rooms in that Hotel are pretty nice though, but I'm sure there are certain rooms he just can't get, especially since Rihanna is there too.
zacfan333 on April 9th, 2012 03:10 am (UTC)
So first Zac walks around his hotel room and realizes the paparazzi are taking pictures of him, so he puts towels up. He then calls the front desk. Some people come up, pull down the curtain, and move some plants. Zac then goes back into his room and starts taking pictures of the paparazzi?

Second PR conspiracy stunt: Who found two golf partners who are so much shorter than Z? Must be a plot to make him look tall.
abigail80831: pic#113712706abigail80831 on April 9th, 2012 06:15 am (UTC)
When I first saw these pics all I could think was "oh look, Zac must be happy, he's finally tall then another guy haha."
Spaßbremsespassbremse123 on April 9th, 2012 11:01 am (UTC)
The last pic surprised me.

Him being the tallest by far among 3 guys.. not sure if that has ever happened before.
countessm3countessm3 on April 9th, 2012 06:14 pm (UTC)
Trying to make Zac look tall is ridiculous, unless for some reason Zac wishes to make Zac look tall, in which case I'd whisper in his ear that being of similiar height has its "advantages".

By the way, remember how I was complaining about how Men's Heath had deformed his arm? Well, this is what a horseshoe looks like, and you can clearly see that Zac has one (thus no need to photoshop it) (picture 28)

Spaßbremsespassbremse123 on April 9th, 2012 06:41 pm (UTC)
That pic is actually hilarious.. I love how he's just standing on a plant with his serious face, like it's not a big deal.

Yeah, the Men's Health cover was quite scary.
Sometimes I wish they would just stop with all the photoshopping nonsense, for males and females.
It's so annoying that they can't just use make-up and lighting and leave it at that - they gotta turn them into superhumans with unrealistic proportions.
countessm3countessm3 on April 9th, 2012 09:40 pm (UTC)
Me too. I actually think Zac's body looks hotter in the above picture than on the cover of MH. In other words, they didn't *have* to photoshop anything - it (muscles) were already there.
