Bee: Zac – CStC photocall - tree bgjeezbee on June 20th, 2015 05:40 pm (UTC)
I like the WAYF poster quite a bit. I suspect there will be another following featuring names and faces but I think this is the first good marketing piece for the movie. Hopefully they will follow that up with a second and better trailer although some damage is already done.

Lol at the wrestling outfit - I'm sure Zac ~loved~ that one. Ha.

I like the WAYF poster too. That's going back to the ole skool rave days when it was more about the music and less about how many drugs you can down and still live.

It seems the goal of all Zac's films since WAYF is to get him to wear as many ridiculous outfits as humanly possible. I honestly can't think of anything they can get him to wear that is any more ridiculous than that tassled thing - unless they put him in a girl's bikini.

BTW - Dave Gahan from Depeche Mode got "Clean" (to quote the song) in 1997 and has stayed clean since. If he was Zac's sponsor that would be cool as sh!t.

PS: Can anyone give me a close-up on Zac's "Student Loans" shirt? I'm curious.

Thanks! Looks like they're hand-gliding over a safety net? In any case, I googled it and can't find it anywhere! I wonder where he got it?

"It seems the goal of all Zac's films since WAYF is to get him to wear as many ridiculous outfits as humanly possible."

I can explain that. He has only filmed gross-out comedies since WAYF, and when writers or directors don't have an adequately hilarious script, then the easy solution is to put your good-looking, straight-arrow star into ridiculous outfits.

If we can't laugh with him, we can laugh at him.

i feel like sami knows if she post a pic of zac anything it's gonna get over 5k likes .amazing.

maybe its just me but i feel like sami is an opportunist idk if's that good or bad but her dating zac has helped her gained some fans? maybe little famous?

the problem with having a problem with her posting about him is:

a) most girlfriends post about their boyfriends, why should she be any different

b) related to point a - she's has posted about/with her boyfriends before (and posts less about zac than any other, showing some measure of respect for his unique situation)

c) everyone gets likes and favs and retweets if they post unique zac content whether they are his girlfriend, costars/directors/producers/writers/other famous ppl, or just random fangirls from iowa.

d) most people around zac benefit from his fame in some way or another, that doesn't make her love false or insincere. and not to wax cheesy poetic but love should lift us up. who cares how, just so long as it makes us better, not worse... and so far as i can tell, that's what she's done for him and him for her.

she's dating a famous actor and she prolly knows that she post anything of zac it will get thousands of likes, pretty sure if she wasn't dating zac no one would even care about her let alone gain any 'fans' she has who are mostly zac fans at this point. didn't she say in her elle interview that if she wasn't dating somemone famous she would't post ? well she is posting? so she kinda lied on that part. something about me irks me and its like no one takes her seriously at all maybe she is or not, but its like she flaunts the relationship what is gonna happen to her when they break up? will her fans stay with her? some of these fans are being hypocrites, yet last year zac was kissing michlle it was a big no oh she's bad ( yes she's an addict and etc) yet sami its all rainbows and apples, looking through her insta she does party and etc just not as open and huge, fans just seem to ignore that sami seems to be using zac's name and fame for her own good? no? maybe its just me, but i just find her as an opportunist who wants to become famous.

If it's a contractual arrangement (which I think it is), then part of the deal is that she has a right (is even expected to) profit by his name. Since she is trying to break into modeling (why? I can imagine nothing more objectifying), then it makes sense that she is promoting their relationship. That one partner is benefitting from a contractual arrangement with another partner is expected.

Contractual arrangements, like some marriages, are a legal form of prostitution - a woman is getting paid to not do anything but sit there like a piece of furniture. I've got too much Scarlett O'Hara in me for that, but if it makes a trophy wife happy, good for her.

I don't think Sami fits this bill since she is trying to make something of herself, but I think she's headed in the wrong direction (with modeling).

you think this realationship is set up and fake? like someone from his team set them up? what i find iffy is how last august she was sating her ex bf still of many years then weeks later she was seen with zac. Q loves her.

you are welcome to your opinion and i'm not entirely sure what your goal is in saying it this way, but i think you either don't know or are ignoring evidence that doesn't fit what you want to project on him. and that's dangerous given your audience.
Beejeezbee on June 21st, 2015 03:08 pm (UTC)
Lol. Cady was way shorter with her reply while I was writing my comment but here it goes...

I don't know where your idea about a contract comes from but I don't agree with that at all. Going by everything I've seen and heard (and that's a lot more than is posted here), their relationship seems genuine.

I didn't reply to your comment on Sami the other day because I don't like getting into all the shipper stuff but I think you got her pegged wrongly too. Idt she's the wet, subordinate towel you make her out to be, and while the power balance clearly was in favor of Zac in the beginning and some of that will never go away because he's the one with the money, I think she is her own person. And as you said, she's trying to make something of herself (btw, the modeling is just an means to an end and side thing from what I get though, not her main aspiration) and not just be Zac's girlfriend. Just because he might be bankrolling a lot of their life, it doesn't mean it's a contract or anyway fake. It's just a general reality when one partner is affluent and the other isn't.

But here is my main issue - I don't agree with Lauren in the first place that she is using Zac the way she's insinuating. Idt she's promoting the relationship the way one would if it was just to gain notority or a contractual situation. There are far less pap pics than with Vanessa or Michelle; they still haven't even walked a red carpet together (and there were several opportunities), she hasn't talked more about him or posted more about him than most normal girlfriends do. As a matter of fact, there are still tons of people who don't even know he has a girlfriend after like 9 months of dating because they are not whoring it out at every opportunity.

Is Sami benefitting from Zac's fame? Sure - just like every other person around him. All of his girlfriends benefited from him including Vanessa and Michelle. It's just the way the media works - the lesser famous person gets more attention if they want it or not.

Is he trying to help her with her fashion blog with an RT or two? Sure, just like every good partner helps his significant other with their goals. But that is just normal stuff. Just like her getting asked or sometimes mention Zac. That's something everyone does, even famous partners. None of that makes the relationship not genuine.

The "funny" thing is that some fans are angry about Sami because she's not behaving like the trophy wife or piece of furniture you assert her to be. They are twisting every single thing into something it's not and seeing things which are not true because they're trying to discount the relationship or Sami because of jealousy they can't admit or because they are not getting the fictional fairytale they dream of.

This is not about you but I'm just really sick of people jumping on the "it's PR" bandwagon because they are behaving like a normal couple and not some reclusives (plus, those people don't even remotely understand how it works). Just because someone don't like her or them, doesn't make anything fake which seems to be the motivation behind most of those comments. They are far less showey than many couples in the spotlight. And tbh, saying it's a contract without any proof or even the slightest evidence is sort of reckless in light of who could be reading these comments.

First of all, I'll say he looks good. The pics in the singlet are epically hilarious!

I deleted the rest of my comment last night, but I'm going to go ahead and post it again. Cady, feel free to delete if I step out of bounds.

Lauren, why do you continue to follow Zac's career and personal life if all you do is question his actions and those of the people he cares about? I'm not saying everything has to be sunshine, rainbows, and happiness (believe me, I do my share of eye-rolling too). The bottom line here is that you'll never get the answers to the questions you are asking because only Zac and Sami know how they truly feel about each other and how their relationship works. I'm not Sami's biggest fan either (the thing that bothers me is how she engages/re-tweets the fans…just something that bugs me after years of being in the fandom and know how some fans will jump on that as a way of thinking they can "get to him". At least she hasn't done some of the stuff his other so-called "friends" have done to him, so she seems to respect him as someone more than just a cash cow. As long as she's not shoving lines of coke up his nose or doing anything to compromise his health or sobriety, let them be. It's nice to see him happy, having fun, and enjoying life and if she's part of the reason for that…good for them.
