Teen idol Zac Efron and his girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens have been compared to David and Victoria Beckham, and Efron couldn’t be more flattered. He told The Daily Mirror, “Vanessa and I would love to be like the US David and Victoria Beckham,” and, “I totally love the way David dresses.” Efron and Hudgens have been dating since 2006.
The movie 17 Again, staring Efron, will be released April 10, and he says that non-musicals are the direction he wants to go for now. Efron confirmed that he will not appear in any more sequels to High School Musical, and he recently pulled out of a remake of the 1980s film Footloose.
Efron recently signed on to appear in the movie version of the Ben Sherwood novel The Death & Life of Charlie St. Cloud, a drama about a cemetery gardener who communicates with his deceased younger brother. “It’s a fantastic story,” Efron said. “It’s a little bit more grown-up. It deals with some heavy material.”
