Zac Efron released quite a few movies this summer, but he is leaving all that plus his Tinder exploits behind to take a trip to Japan. Even though Team USA’s most prominent gymnast Simone Biles called for his help at Olympics 2016, it looks like the High School Musical star is determined to not get involved in the mania surrounding the Olympics.
The fact that he also has not acknowledged his “bestie” Gianluca Vacchi’s viral dancing videos means that the Neighbors star wants to take some time this summer for himself.
When posting a picture during his trip to Japan, the movie star quoted Emerson, just to prove the level of sentiments and philosophizing he is doing in East Asia.
This kind of spiritual trip might be good for Zac Efron as he has experienced many failures this summer. Not only did he just get out of a relationship with Sami Miro, his girlfriend of two years, but he also failed at his attempts to find someone special on Tinder.
“Dating is something I’ll never be able to do,” Zac said, according to People Magazine. “As in the dictionary definition of dating, because one way or another I’ve impacted that person’s life and they’ll soon realize it.”
“Amazingly, when I signed up for Tinder, nobody swiped me,” he added. “They thought it was fake… That never happened.”
Sounds like being single while also being famous is no easy task.
Even though Tinder does not work for him, that doesn’t mean there is a lack of girls clamoring for his attention. In fact, his most famous fan right now may be needing his help at the Rio Olympics.
U.S. gymnast Simone Biles said in an interview right before leaving for Rio that Zac Efron is her biggest celebrity idol. She said that she tries “not to let the pressure get to her, but that might be hard if her celebrity crush, Zac Efron, were a spectator,” according to Today.
“I think we need you here at the team final,” Simone Biles said, laughing.
Despite her earnest requests, Zac Efron left all the Olympics hype at home to pursue his journey to Japan.
He also turned a blind eye toward one of his craziest friends, Gianluca Vacchi, who has been capturing Instagram’s attention for his hilarious dancing.
“Gianluca, 48, shared the clips with his 1.2 million Instagram followers, one of which has been viewed more than two million times,” reports Hello! Magazine. “It shows him and Giorgia moving energetically to Ricky Martin’s La Mordidita, seemingly having a friendly and very sexy dance-off!”
Just two years ago, Zac and Gianluca Vacchi shared a tender moment in Italy, and the movie star wrote that the Italian businessman was the “most interesting man in the world.”
By ignoring Simone Biles’ request, Gianluca Vacchi’s videos and Olympics mania, Neighbors movie star is on the track to personal awakening and self-indulging. If he had to stay away from fatty foods during Baywatch filming, he is now fully caving into his sweet tooth cravings.
But after his summer trip to Japan, the 28-year-old actor will have to face reality in Los Angeles, seeing traces of his ex-girlfriend Sami Miro as well as trying to expand his brand beyond comedy movies that fill his current resume. Maybe he will have to try Tinder again to see if there is anyone datable around him.
Do you think this trip to Japan will help Zac get perspective on his life? Do you think there is a chance that he might fly to Rio to make Simone Biles’ dreams come true? Let us know in the comments below!
