Tom Cruise Offered Zac Efron Some Candid Advice On His Future

EfronI won’t talk specifically about those conversations but I think they were pretty candid and common sense driven. You have to be aware — and I am — of who you are and what you bring to the table and even more importantly how you are perceived. You really have to take into account what your place is, how you can shape that to what you want it to be in the future and what the steps are to get there.”

      Ugh, what a bunch of nothing/fluff. Are you sure this wasn’t an interview with Paula Abdul?

      Sounds like scientology word salad.

      The Xenus are expected to recruit new members. The more public stature and the bigger the bank account, the more brownie points you receive. I recall reading Tommyboy was letting Zac ride his fancy-pants motorcycle. But, the bromance never took hold and Zac Efron remains his own man.

      Tom told Zac to bend over the bed, then asked how limber he was. Hours later, Zac was crying about the Scientologist that molested him!

      Tom Cruise is clinically insane, and he is not harmless, because he truly believes in what people tell him at the church of scientology.

      Didn’t I read on here that Efron had to go to rehab recently? Sounds about right, that’s when Scientology grabs them.

      Efron seemed to take it, he’s further into the closet than he’s ever been.. And honestly, as much as it upsets me to say, it would be best for his career to stay there. Unless it causes him so much strife that he melts down completely, which we’ve seen before.

      Actually you make some sense. He is getting close to 30 and yet doesn’t really have a major relationship in his past. Kind of like Ricky Martin.

      How much is this site getting paid to spam it’s own visitors with garbage about Zac Efron?

      Do they not realize most gay men couldn’t care less about him? He’s not hot, he looks like Ricky Martin when he was trying to be “butch” before coming out, and there’s nothing talent worthy about him. He does not stand out, he’s not interesting, and his looks can’t carry him because HE IS NOT THAT ATTRACTIVE(mostly because he looks like a woman with all that makeup on… market him to straight men and lesbians).

      Move on. You’ve had your pay day now stop running off your readers with this trash.

      Interesting advice, and–considering the source–Efron would do well to do the exact OPPOSITE of what Cruise says. That is, if anyone can figure out what the hell he’s saying.
