Zac Efron has been part of our lives for as long as we can remember. From his role on teen show Summerland and his big break as Troy Bolton on High School Musical to his more recent comedies, he’s always been putting a smile our faces and making our hearts flutter.
We’re not sure what it is — that smile, those biceps or his effortless sweet charm. Realistically, it’s all that and then some more. Watching Zac grow and make his own unique name as a film comedian has been incredibly rewarding — and just really really nostalgic.
Truth is, Zac never really gave us time to fall out of love with him — he was a teen hearthrob and now he’s just a regular ol’ hearthrob.
Here’s why we never quite were able to shake our crush on Zac Efron:
His budding friendship with Simon Biles
He speaks on behalf of world issues
Thanks for the nom, @chrishemsworth. Happy to paint one nail and be a @PolishedMan this month to say no to violence against children. 1 in 5 children are subject to physical and/or sexual violence before the age of 18 and that’s one too many. Find out how you can help/donate at http://polishedman.com. I nominate the following studs @james_marsden, @thehughjackman, @andybovine, @ders808, @blakeanderson and @deandrejordan6 to become a #polishedman. #nailittoENDit
He’s a song and dance man
And looks damn good in a cowboy hat
He’s a great duet partner
Like, REALLY REALLY great
He duetted with Betty Freaking White
He’s super gifable
He has serious moves
His comedic timing
But also flare for drama
17 Again is one of the most underrated gems of this time
And lets not forget he was an important part of our childhood
And simultaneously the best thing to happen to Tumblr
He’s full of compliments
He’s okay with a little bit of nudity
He makes our hearts flutter
He’s the king of throwbacks
