ZAC Efron has been hanging out with Leonardo DiCaprio!
The High School Musical star says he is now buddies with his acting idol after he scored with him at a basketball game.
“I met him at a Laker game,” says Zac. “I’d sat down in seats and I looked down and there was a dude in a baseball hat and I went, ‘Holy s***, that’s Leo!’ I was like, ‘Man, I’m not gonna interrupt you during the game, I know you wanna watch the Lakers. But if there’s any chance that I could just talk to you for a minute, whether we get coffee, anything dude.’
“And he was like, ‘Dude, what are you doing tomorrow? Come over tomorrow — let’s hang out.’
“That’s a little taste of how cool he is. He’s just very down to earth. He’s just an awesome dude. He’s been nice enough to hang out with me a few times.”
Efron has previously revealed how the Titanic actor warned him on the dangers of substance abuse.
“It was kind of his way-out-the-door, last-minute advice. He said, ‘Oh, by the way, if you really want to mess this all up, try heroin’,” he said.
“I said, ‘Thanks’, and he said, ‘No, seriously, that’s pretty much the only way you’re going to screw this up, and you shouldn’t go down that road — it will mess you up without fail. Do not do drugs.’
“That was enough for me; that’s all I needed to hear.”
