Zac Efron is so adorable that he can make a visit to a strip club seem precious.
The baby-faced “Charlie St. Cloud” star appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and the host wasted no time diving right into the New York Post report that Efron and his “High School” musical co-star Corbin Bleu had visited a strip club together.
Efron, 22, said he’s legal and admitted that he had been to the club. “I’ve heard a lot about these places, mostly from rap music,” Efron said. “They are supposed to be pretty reputable, right?”
The actor shot down rumors, however, that he and Bleu spent $2,000 on lap dances and “making it rain.”
“I don't think I opened my wallet,” Efron explained. “It was more of a celebratory thing."
The most difficult thing, he said, was calling girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens beforehand to make her aware of his boys’ night out.
"It's like, how do you even start that conversation without feeling like a total [expletive],” he said. “It is hard.”
And how did Hudgens react to the news that her honey of several years would be spending the evening with strippers who were probably anxious to show Efron a few dance moves of their own?
“She was fine with it,” Efron said.
