Zac Efron jokes with Aussie Rove host Rove McManus as they figure out he can perform miracles.
The 21-year-old heartthrob talked about his movie, 17 Again, Australian lingo and his performance at the Oscars. Check it:
On his older fans: â€œThere are a lot of young fans â€” theyâ€™re beautiful and theyâ€™re amazing â€” but itâ€™s the moms that get absolutely crazy. There was one, I was at this signing and there were stairs you had to walk up and everyone was coming one at a time. There was this mom that was in a wheelchair and her daughter came up and got an autograph. And the mom was like, â€˜I want one too,â€™ so she stands right up from the wheelchair and walks right up on stage. I was like, â€˜Of course, you can have whatever you want.â€™ I signed like ten things for her and she walked back down, sat back in her wheelchair and rolled away.â€
On the Australian lingo: â€œIâ€™m still rusty. I was giving an interview the other day and the lady was so nice, she was a sweetheart. We were laughing a lot and I said at the end of the interview, â€˜Iâ€™m really rooting for you.â€ She went silent. â€˜Hello, you still there?â€™ She started giggling pretty hard. I realized that that was a bad mistake. A couple days later [someone explained what ‘root’ meant to me].â€
On performing with Hugh Jackman at the Oscars: â€œIt was, but thereâ€™s a a safety net. No oneâ€™s gonna start hackling you because Wolverine can literally just (makes gesture of strangling). It was fantastic, It was an honor to be up there with those guys. 100% [I get nervous]. I think the Oscars was the most nervous Iâ€™ve ever been in my entire life.â€
