At the press junket for the film, New Year's Eve.
Now, let's talk about this for a moment: Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens met and dated during their High School Musical years. They were a very cute couple and they lived in my neighborhood, so I saw them quite a bit with the paparazzi constantly on their trail. Like many first loves, they broke up. This happened about a year ago. Well, the Zanessa fans relentlessly hounded me on Twitter to ask Zac about Vanessa when I'm supposed to be asking about New Year's Eve. They called me a bad reporter. Giggle and sigh. I understand when fans get excited about their favorite stars, I think that is why it is so enjoyable to interview the Disney Channel stars. However, at a certain point, you have to understand that these stars have a life and feelings and sometimes things should just be private. Zac hasn't ever discussed the Vanessa break-up and I doubt he will beyond saying it was a lovely time in his life, she's a sweet girl, etc. (You know, the standard answers to the press. So, foolish me for thinking everyone wanted to hear a Glee interview, they wanted a Zac interview. I definitely learned something that day and it convinced me that having enthusiastic fans is pretty powerful in Hollywood these days. I should have remembered that from my Angie Harmon Twangels encounter......maybe that's my New Year's resolution? Remember the fans, KB, remember the fans!!
Anyway, enjoy my interviews for iVillage with Zac and Michelle Pfeiffer, who is perhaps the most stunning celebrity I have ever interviewed and so NICE to boot, as well as Lea Michele, who gave a great answer to her red carpet/Twitter disagreement with Modern Family star Sarah Hyland.
