In this post, you will find out more about Efron’s personal life including his real age and romantic relationships. You may be surprised to learn some things about the superstars that you never knew before even though you are his ardent fan.
Zac Efron’s Age: How Old Is Zac Efron?
As previously mentioned Zac Efron is the stage name of Zachary David Alexander Efron born on October 18, 1987 (age 28) in San Luis Obispo, California, U.S. The family later moved to Arroyo Grande, California where he was raised. His father is the one who awoke his talent by encouraging him to start acting when he was eleven years of age. He later appeared in theater productions at high school and worked in the theater The Great American Melodrama and Vaudeville before he formally began taking singing lessons.
His real acting career began in 2002 when he was just 15 years of age. At the time he only played guest roles and I believe his great performance is what earned his greater roles in subsequent years. His biggest breakthrough came in 2006 when he was 19 years old starred in the Disney Channel original movie High School Musical as Troy Bolton playing the place of a popular student and captain of the basketball team.
Is He Gay?
Questions emerged in 2012 when word got out that Efron is actually confessing his true feelings about being gay. This prompted his very first gay-press interview in which he shocked his fans and the world that he saw nothing wrong with such sex affiliation. The rumors that he could be gay started surfacing from as early as his high school days and had followed him along. Is it possible that he is actually gay or it was merely a rumor with a simple soft spot for the gay community?
The rumors spread like bushfire after a picture of him wearing a t-shirt saying “Some Dudes Marry Dudes. Get Over It” went viral on social media. It was later realized that the picture was actually photoshopped. The curious thing that made many skeptics believe that Zac could actually be gay is his response that he would have absolutely no problem wearing a shirt T-shirt.
In April 2015, the rumors resurfaced when a video revealed a curious relationship between Dave Franco (best known for Scrubs) and Zac Efron. In a particular scene from their hit comedy, Neighbors they recreated at the 2015 MTV Movie Awards, a shirtless Zac Efron was seen grabbing Dave Franco’s crotch. This led to Franco doing the same to him immediately fueling the rumors. It is now widely believed that the two are actively dating even though neither Zac Efron nor his supposed date has confirmed or denied the allegations.
Zac Efron Girlfriend and Dating History
Despite the serious allegations that Zac is gay, one thing we cannot be sure about is the fact that he has a girlfriend he has been dating for over one year. Her name is Sami Miro. They celebrated their first anniversary in September 2015. It is not clear whether the relationship will end up in marriage and neither of the two has said anything to that effect.
Prior to dating Miss Miro, the actor and singer had dated a number of women including Vanessa Hudgens, Tereza Palmer, Lily Collins, Alexandra Storm, Rumer Mills, Lindsay Lohan, and Halston Sage. It is Vanessa who he dated for the longest time of six months. It remains to be seen if Zac will go all the way with Miro to the isle but from his dating history, it is almost certain that he will have more girlfriends. The one he will ask to be his wife will be the luckiest one I guess.
