Oh man. Addiction is a bear, y'all. And it's a constant battle. I hope he gets the help he needs. And lying about drinking is just part of it, Enty, try not to get too attached
"Not the face! Not the face!"
His bodyguard or his sober coach?
Zac,you needs help!be strong! Think about your career! Think about your family!
Zac you need to get Biebs' to hire you a real bodyguard.
Skid Row is tough y'all!
Quite a bodyguard he has, eh? and what kind of an asshole throws a bottle out his window towards a group of people? He seems like a little entitled brat to me.
I don t wanna see another Cory episode… another lost beautiful young life. And Zac seems to share same demons as Cory. I don t believe he is only drinking.
Bwahaha, BeckyMae, you totally made me snort! And then feel bad.
Did the police check to see if his car was actually out of gas? Seems like an easy way of figuring out what he was doing out there.
Inglewood/Compton or East Hell A don't see a lot of pretty boy white guys in their parts
where are you getting he was drunk just because tmz reported buy a source? really?
also entry stop sayinng you want him to succeed when clearly you hate hin?
What kind of bodyguard gets beat up??
Of course he says he's sober. He wants to work. No one wants to hire or insure an alcoholic who is still drinking.
There are a lot of knee-jerk defenders among the CDAN for people who won't be open about their same-sex relationships because they want to keep working in Hollywood. Or be open about their health problems – HIV, cancer, etc. All the Nancy Nicelys hop on to say "This is private! We shouldn't be gossiping about this! Shame on you!"
Why should someone with a substance abuse problem be any different? Zac Efron is clearly not just partying, like, say, John Mayer or Rhianna. He's sick.
Disney got another one!
Have Danny Bonaduce give him a call.
Of course an addict says they're sober. Duh. And I really do hope he cleans up.
Beat up by a gang of homeless people? Sounds like Zac and Aaron Carter need to take a course on creative tale telling.
DLo, I'm with you. Throwing glass bottles at people? Try not to look surprised when they rip your neck through your ass. Idiotic on so many levels.
I don't really have a comment about his condition aside from hoping he gets the help he needs.
Mostly I'm just weirded out by this picture. He looks SO much like my ex boyfriend in it. It's creeping me out.
I'm not a tweenster so I don't keep up with the Efron, but he looks like he'd do 'elegantly wasted' pretty … pretty. Maybe he should call Nick Cave.
Denial. A true addict will always deny. I think Zac is adorable and could have a great career ahead of him. I hope he can get clean once and for all, and maybe also be checked for any diseases after sleeping with Lindsey, I think he'll be ok.
so its zack effron day huh?gwennie should send him a fruit basket.
They just wanted his car for a soup kitchen.
He wants Efron to succeed but would prefer Lohan to be laying in a ditch somewhere?
efron still has a teen following from his better days (hsm, hairspray) so i think if he can get it together and charm the cameras/audience, he will be back on track. hes very good looking
Living in the closet will do that to some people.
@ sugarbread maker: Thanks for the belly laugh today. For me, you win the internets!
looking for drugshe doesnt have a connect that he doesnt have to go skid row????
doing it alll wrong
If people are attacking your car, you put it in first gear and slowly start to drive away. If someone is on the hood or roof, you start to swerve left and right when you hit 2nd, to get em off.
I had a couple friends who had their vehicles swarmed and piled on while getting crack in Trenton. One guy had 3 dudes latched onto his car, and he said he shook em off in 3 blocks. THe guy clinging to the windshield wipers was toughest.
That story makes me think Zac was buying crack, got a piece of chalk or drywall, and threw a bottle at the dudes when he realized he got beat.
What kind of asshole throws a bottle out of a window period? I have a dog, and she doesn't wear shoes.
I like Counts story the best. I actually laughed at the guy hanging onto the windshield wiper. That was funny.
Don't taunt homeless people. They'll kick your ass. He's lucky he wasn't knifed.
This guy must be fighting a lot of demons. Why would he go to skid row to score drugs? And was it his bodyguard or a druggie friend?
No Christmas bonus for the "bodyguard" this year. It's very sad that most child stars end up as addicts.
The thing about being sober is that you don't really have to be at it a certain amount of time for it to official. That's why you can get a chip at AA for being one day sober. It's none of my business if he has been pretending to be sober for months but if it's like Enty said and he has had a few slip ups than he probably was sober for periods of time.
Some of the Entys have no knowledge of addiction and their ignorance is often cruel.
Yeah, that kid is super pretty. My inappropriate crush…
I think "bodyguard" was pr talk for undercover boyfriend and the closet he doesn't seem to want to come out of, which is probably why he ends up down in skid row.@Turkish- I think jayz asked gwennie to break the news when she did because he and bey were tired of kimye getting so much news. the minute gwennie "consciously uncoupled"kimye became goneye.just some food for thought. when jayz and beyonce hold a grudge they f*ckin hold a grudge.. like hey chris, gwen. could ya'll divorce now and wipe this vogue sh*t off the news?? thanks, i'll duet w/ u next man. promise.
+infinity for sugarbread's genius Gone-ye conspiracy theory
@lady h – did you end up winning any money in vegas?? or just dodging hookers and creepers..ya know, the usual
I would've walked away with a couple hundred if I hadn't stayed up til 4am on Sunday drinking at the new SATC slot machines and roulette at Palazzo! You should have joined me, we could have used my winnings on something much more awesome lol
I think I left $40 up. Lots of creepers, grifters and hookers as usual! The only celeb sighting unfortunately was Zlist pro-heaux Brace from Gigolos, who I recognized only because of the Soup. He was hamming it up at the Cosmo and it still gives me sad faced heebie jeebies to think about. Not nearly as fun as the Rick Ross/Omarion shitshow I saw last year at Chateau. I had no idea Omarion HAD groupies and oh, you should have seen them.
satc machine is a trap!!I have to admit I saw 1st season of gigolos and I would have been afraid of getting an airborne std from brace, Bryce?better luck next trip.. give me advance notice next time ok??
Oh I had a blast anyways!!! At least I was still up. And will do
Alita said: "he looks like he'd do 'elegantly wasted' pretty … pretty. Maybe he should call Nick Cave."
I think you're on to something. Efron does look a bit Johnny Suede in that photo, somewhere between Pitt and Cave.
You've hit it on the head, @Zeeky! Good one. Johnny Suede is a perfect reference. I was casting around for the best comparison – the pose reminds me of 'elegantly wasted' cover but Efron's way prettier. Sads that he's maybe got the addiction issues, but he's making the look work.
Now I have 'Henry Lee' in my head. Always seemed so apt that Kylie was killed by Nick, but PJ killed him!
But hang on, "Elegantly Wasted" was an INXS song….surely you mean Michael Hutchence?
Not thinking of the inxs song – thinking of what I want to call a mag cover if not an album. Quick google didn't help either. Gagh. In my brain I see it! It was totes alt heroin Newtown chic. Like the Sando with more velvet. Dyswim or no?
Oh yeah I think it was The Face maybe? Lol, I live in Newtown!! The revamped Sando (Newtown Social) is about to play live music again and so is the Hub, yay!!
Hmm, I suspected as much! We moved out a little while ago, but that's the ol' stamping ground. Will always love it – this article typified it for me.
“I was walking down King Street towards the city and these two big bulls were running along the inner side lane towards the city,” Ms Murdolo said.“It was kind of bizarre but it was Newtown so I didn't think it was that unusual,” she said.
Oh that was so funny Alita! Those water buffalo went ALL the way up King St from Sydney Park to Missenden Road! I'm off Enmore Road so I missed it but I personally think they deliberately let them off as a publicity stunt…
No one bats an eyelid about shit like that around here, there's a guy who walks around regularly with the most spectacular yellow python around his neck and the dude on the mobility scooter who blares Elvis from a gigantic boombox, complete with wibbly-wobbly Elvises up and down King St…I love it…
I think my life would have been complete if you could have given a first hand account, huh XD
Excellent part of the world. Enjoy it
