Watch out Vanessa Hudgens â€“ Zac Efron thinks that Japanese girls are “the prettiest in the world”.
Zac turned on the charm as he joined a crowd of 200 lucky competition-winners to attend a screening of the Hollywood heart-throbâ€™s latest movie, 17 Again at the Shinjuku Piccadilly theatre, in Tokyo.
The 21-year-old actor greeted the group of girls in Japanese, saying: â€œKonichiwa!â€ Asked if he liked the local ladies, Zac replied: â€œAbsolutely, Iâ€™m here with the prettiest girls in the world.â€
In a hilarious moment, Zac then converted the group into instant basketball fans. The High School Musical star asked the crowd whether they were fans of the NBA and basketball â€“ to which the group went wild, screaming their agreement before they had even heard his question from the on-hand Japanese translator!
The â€œHigh School Musicalâ€ stud held an exclusive screening of the movie for two hundred lucky fans at the Shinjuku Piccadilly cinema in Tokyo, greeting the crowd with a short address beforehand.
And after the screening was over, Efron waved to the massive crowd of fans that were waiting outside who werenâ€™t lucky enough to get a ticket to the event.
However, Efronâ€™s security was forced to rush him to a waiting car as the crowd broke through barriers in an attempt to rush Zac and get his autograph.
