It’s official! Zac Efron is currently in Austin shooting the JFK assassination film Parkland.
My pal Cameron Cooper saw the actor Wednesday night on the set of Parkland. After locating the hospital where the film was shooting, she and a friend arrived to find that filming had wrapped. So they pulled up next to the row of actor’s trailers to scope out the scene. When they saw Zac’s assistant standing outside one of the trailers, they knew they had hit the jackpot. After a few minutes, Zac walked out of his trailer sporting a denim jacket with fur lining over a Van Halen t-shirt with flip flops and socks. Sexy!
When they first approached the star, he was leaning against a tree facing away with a cigarette in hand. Cameron spoke to him in what she says was a casual manner(though I’m not so sure given this guy’s affect on the ladies) and asked, “Hey Zac, can we have a picture?” He replied, “Hey guys. Yeah, give me like ten minutes because I’m about to take a phone call but I’ll meet you over there.” After waiting on the side of his trailer for less than a minute, Zac returned from a chat with his assistant, telling the girls, “Hey, sorry about the cigarette. I have to smoke for the movie.” He then made a point of showing them that the cigarette was actually a fake.
Reacting to the encounter, Cameron told me, “It was funny how concerned he was of what we thought about him smoking. It was so cute.”
Zac then snapped pics with the girls and even wished them a good night.
And if you’re wondering, Cameron says Zac is “way cuter in person.” However, it’s hard to see for yourself in this zombie eye’d picture. Remember when we took pics with actual cameras rather than cell phones? Awww, snap.
Parkland is shooting with an all-star cast this month in Austin. For more on the movie, click HERE.
