Zendaya Calls Zac Efron A 'Slightly Awkward, Nerdy Guy' in New Interview

If you’re reading this, you were probably a Zac Efron fangirl, yes? Yes.

However, his newest co-star, Zendaya, was not.

Speaking with Elle magazine in a new interview, Zendaya confessed that she wasn’t a huge fangirl, and didn’t have any posters hanging over her bed with his charming smile on it.

“Everybody knows at least two or three Zac Efron obsessives. I happen to not be one of those people,” she says. “That’s a good thing. I got to know him. He’s different from what people think.”

So, what is Zac really like, according to Zendaya? “He’s this slightly awkward, nerdy kid who happens to have this life.”

You can catch both Zac and Zendaya in The Greatest Showman, opening on Wednesday, December 20th.
