During his first visit to the Philippines, Zac Efron opened up about his first kiss and his chemistry with former girlfriend, Filipino-American actress Vanessa Hudgens.
The Hollywood actor charmed Filipinos at his fan conference held last night, September 29, at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.
TV host Boy Abunda had the chance to interview Zac, whom he described as "one of the most brilliant actors of his generation."
Zac has been staying in the Philippines for several days already.
When Boy asked Zac about his stay here in the tropical country, Zac exclaimed: "It's been absolutely incredible!"
As a kid, Zac grew up listening to stories about the Philippines from his father David, a former merchant marine who often visited the country in the past.
"It's been a dream of mine to come to the Philippines since I was a young boy. Now I'm finally here with all you guys," said Zac with a smile.
What's the best story that he heard about the Philippines?
"My dad told me stories about the food and how amazing all the people were."
What is his favorite food now?
"Balut!" he said, referring to fertilized duck egg, which is considered a delicacy in the Philippines.
The A-list Hollywood actor expressed his gratitude for Pinoys who showed our trademark hospitality.
"The Filipino people are so nice! You make me feel so at home. I just want to move here."
The crowd showed its appreciation by cheering loudly for the 24-year-old actor.
When his movie Hairspray was discussed during his sit-down interview with Boy, Zac praised Pinoys by saying: "I love how musical you are!"
PINAY FOR ZAC? Zac's preference in women was briefly discussed during the interview.
