Zac Efron stars in the new flick “The Lucky One” and has a couple steamy love scenes. Judging by the trailer alone, the movie is just a series of shower scenes intercut with Zac making a squinty-eye face.
Unfortunately for Zac, he had to watch his on-camera lovemaking while sitting next to his whole family at one of the premieres. Awwwkkwarrrddd.
“We saw the film together and I was kind of squirming,” Efron told People magazine. “Even though my mom was a couple of seats down from me, I tried to duck out during those scenes because it was too embarrassing. Obviously I’m acting, but knowing that my mom and my family were watching is kind of awkward. There’s really no way around it.”
There is one way around it…don’t sit next to your parents. C’mon, throw them in the balcony seats, they aren’t famous.
When asked what his mom thought of his on-camera sexy time, he responded, “She was just laughing about it in a good way,” says Zac, “She said, ‘That’s my boy!’ I think she was proud of me at the end of it, even if it was weird for her to watch. My mom is my biggest supporter.”
By a show of hands, whose mother has seen them have sex and then called out “That’s my boy!” afterwards? Nobody? Good.
Apparently Zac is a bit of a mama’s boy, but says she raised him just right.
“My mom is the No. 1 person who has taught me to be courteous towards women, to always be respectful and polite to them, and to always lead with your heart,” admits Zac.
To see Zac being courteous towards women, check out “The Lucky One,” which opens in theaters tonight.
