Justin Bieber and Zac Efron might appear to move in very different social circles and have distinct lifestyles. Bieber always seems to be surrounded by a mix of bodyguards, attractive gal pals, and male friends, while Efron tends to mingle more with his acting pals or be more of a loner. But now, Justin and Zac have what appears to be a blossoming bromance, according to Us Weekly.
It all began when Bieber and some pals visited Efron’s house in Los Angeles following some fun partying at the Doheny Room and 1 Oak. Justin revealed that he has been a fan of the actor’s for years, starting with High School Musical in 2006.
Bieber then recommended to his new pal that Zac set a goal of becoming “more selective about the roles he takes,” a source told Us Weekly.
“Justin was very honest and kind of went in on Zac. But Zac appreciated it.”
In addition, helping to build their friendship, Efron turned around and gave his new bro buddy some “life tips” of his own. Zac advised that Bieber “keep breaking boundaries,” added the source.
While giving professional guidance to each other is helpful, the two have more in common personally than surviving the competitive entertainment industry. Justin went through a highly publicized breakup with Selena Gomez, and Efron just survived his own experience in the spotlight after splitting from his girlfriend.
Zac has sought to focus on work after abruptly ending his romance with his now-former gal pal Sami Miró, reported People. The two were together for almost two years.
And while Efron is involved in multiple projects, such as Baywatch and Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, he prefers not to spend time with colleagues, making his new bond with Bieber all the more meaningful.
“Zac tends to keep to himself and doesn’t seem to hang out with his coworkers often,” a source informed People.
Fitness is a key priority for the athletic actor. In addition to working out at the gym, Efron incorporates exercise breaks into his film schedule.
“Between every take and whenever he is not filming, he does push-ups and finds chairs to do tricep dips,” added the source.
However, Zac occasionally allows himself to relax with help from his co-stars, especially the female ones, according to the insider.
“[Efron] doesn’t do much interacting with costars except for the girls.”
Among those who have been seen with him at local bars are Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach and Izabel Goulart.
As for what’s going on with Zac’s former girlfriend Sami, in one of those truth-is-stranger-than-fiction situations, Miro is following up her breakup with Efron by doing precisely what Selena did after her own split from Bieber: Plunging into her work. Adding to the OMG factor, Sami’s new gig is to work as Gomez’s new designer.
So while their respective former boyfriends are partying together and being bros, Miro and Selena are working on a way to sizzle up Gomez’s style for her Revival Tour. The two also have new merchandise in the works, replacing traditional graphic concert t-shirts with unusual attire such as a mesh mock turtleneck, reported Refinery 29.
Gomez wowed when she sizzled at the start of her tour flaunting a stunning catsuit sparkling with nearly 100,000 Swarovski crystals. Now, with guidance from Efron’s former girlfriend, whose brand is known as Sami Miro Vintage, she’s taking it up another notch.
Miro gets credit for some of Selena’s most dazzling outfits, such as lace-up pants complemented by a supremely sexy high-neck leather bustier.
While their former girlfriends work together on designer attire, is there any chance fans will be seeing Zac and Justin relaxing together any time soon? Bieber currently is on vacation in Hawaii, according to Billboard.
And just as Efron enjoys spending his free time with gal pals, Justin was seen with a group of bikini-clad beauties. He shared some of his fun on Instagram.
