Zac Efron shaves his head for 'The Lucky One'

Zac Efron is creating a lot of buzz with his newly shaved head. After shearing off his locks to play a Marine in the movie adaptation of Nicholas Sparks's "The Lucky One," the actor convinced the film's cast and crew to follow suit for the sake of charity.

According to the Times-Picayune, Efron – who just wrapped shooting on "The Lucky One" in New Orleans – issued a challenge to his colleagues, saying that for every crew member who joined him in getting a buzz cut, he would donate cash to local charity Kingsley House, which aims to educate children, strengthen families, and build community.

"He likes doing things for charity - two Make-A-Wish kids came a visit to the set while he was there - and he felt like he wanted to do something for a New Orleans charity since he had such a nice time shooting there," Efron's publicist told the paper.

While the rep didn't reveal the exact amount of money the 23-year-old star raised, the Times-Picayune reports that approximately 30 "The Lucky One" crew members got sheared, including two women, whose tresses were donated to Locks of Love, an organization that makes wigs for ailing children.

      You felt the need to announce this, you, one of thousands and thousands of anonymous commenters? If this is your idea of making a statement, or protesting entertainment news, or whatever... it's kind of sad. lad.
