Better known as Zac Efron, he has retained his prominence in Hollywood since 2002 and has been enjoying the peak of his career success at present. Other than being a sensational actor, Zac is also a tremendously talented singer and has contributed to the soundtracks of his movies, which have all been certified either platinum or gold in many countries.
Beyond his glittering career, however, another striking thing about Efron is his captivating looks. The American actor is every shade of handsome, and being such an eye-candy can get heads to turn your way more often than you wish. As such, he has been linked to several pretty ladies, as well as roped in gay rumors. In all, the Hollywood heartthrob has been the subject of industry gossip for his love exploits, but how much of the rumors are true?
Why We Think Zac Efron Is A Great Catch
Zac started focusing on acting and played parts in dramas and theatres as a teenager. After studying at Pacific Conservatory of the Performing Arts, Zac started his professional career as an actor and began with minor roles. He appeared in different television series like Firefly, The Guardian, NCIS, and more.
Eventually, Zac Efron starred in the movie High School Musical, which made him a sensation among teenagers, earned him millions of fans, and last but not the least, a large sum of money. Subsequently, he began adding more movies like Hairspray, 17 Again, Neighbors, The Lucky Ones, among others to his cache, skyrocketing his career. All these movies have also won many awards for Zac, including a Teen Choice Award for High School Musical.
To add more icing to the cake, Zac Efron lives a lavish lifestyle in his $2.35 million, five-bedroom, five-bathroom, 5,644-square-foot mansion in Hollywood Hills. He had previously bought a mansion for $2.35 million in 2008 and then sold it for nearly $2.8 million in 2014. A sports car enthusiast, Zac enjoys collecting luxury cars and has managed to add Audi S6, 2011 Audi S5 Coupe, and much more into his collection.
Armed with that disarming smile and a $24 million net worth, it doesn’t come as a surprise that he enjoys all that attention, especially from the ladies. However, does he like them too?
Is Zac Efron Really Gay?
Zac’s personal life has always been a scoop for the media. He has been rumored time and again to be a member of the LGTB community, but that seems to be part of the typical trail of controversies that trail celebrities. Granted, he may have been captured while kissing a fellow man, but that would be on the set of film production as the actor has made it clear that he is not gay. Still, the rumors prevailed.
Sometime in 2014, the one-time child actor was said to be dating his Neighbors co-star Dave Franco. Dave’s brother, James Franco made fun of the supposed Hollywood article that instigated the rumor with a screenshot of the article and captioned it thus, “Effron and My brother, dating!!!!!! Congrats, boys! I’m so happy for you!!!”
For the most part, he drew attention from the rainbow community following his memorable role in High School Musical, which also turned him into a teen sensation. Being in the spotlight with all the physical endowments he exudes, he had many fans crushing on him, both men and women, and this is usually a recipe for rumors.
Although Zac isn’t gay, he doesn’t see anything wrong with being one, and he does give the LGBT community his undivided support. According to him, a lot of his close friends and some of the most influential people around him are gay, and it makes him happy to see them being able to live their lives and do what they want.
Meet The Actor’s Girlfriend, Halston Sage
Zac has always been in a relationship since his breakthrough in the film industry turned him into an everyday crush. As of early 2020, it has been confirmed that he is dating actress Halston Sage. Soon after he broke up with his ex Sarah Bro, the actor didn’t waste much time in finding love again in the arms of Sage. According to Us magazine, Zac and Sage are getting pretty serious. The two spent most holidays together the previous year, mostly in Santa Barbara.
Recall that the actor had opined that he is currently thinking about settling down, could this be it? That aside, if you are wondering why Halston Sage is looking so familiar, it might be because she is an old flame of Zac’s. The actors played roles in Neighbours in 2014. After getting close during filming, they began dating as confirmed by E! News. Zac had just gotten out of rehab with a clean and new spirit, which helped their relationship to grow, but not for long apparently.
These Are All The Women Zac Has Been Linked To
Among all the women linked to the actor romantically, Vanessa Hudgens is the most popular. Zac had previously been an item with his High School Musical co-star Vanessa Hudgens, which made great news for many years, but the couple broke up in December 2010. While one source says they started dating on the set of HSM in 2005, another suggests they only met there but started dating two years after.
Though a bit off and on, Zac Efron dated Lily Colling between 2012 and 2013. They started hanging out while promoting their movie Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile. He was then linked to The Fast and Furious actress Michelle Rodriguez for about two weeks in 2014 before he hooked up with Sami Miro in September 2014, a relationship that broke off two years later (2016).
