Yep, you read that headline correctly!!
According to co-star Macy Gray, he was half-naked "half the time." But don't let that fool you into thinking he hasn't transcended past that golden gate of serious film!
Quite the contrary!!
The Paperboy is legit. Helmed by Lee Daniels, the Southern melodrama is one of the Cannes competition films this year!!
So what does Zefron do?? He plays Matthew McConaughey's little brother who becomes entranced with Nicole Kidman's seXXy character — Charlotte Bless.
Now, while Nicci was peeing on him after a jellyfish sting, Zefron was totally unfazed. He stuck to his acting guns and performed like a pro, saying:
As much as I love everything I've done, this is a new frontier for me. It's incredibly fulfilling. It's a dream. Hopefully, I can keep doing things like this
So plan on seeing a lot more from Zefron… including Oscar acceptance speeches.
Meanwhile, we're just beaming with pride. He's grown so much since High School Musical!!
