Zac Efron on “Today”: Hollywood Reporter Interview was a "Weight Off My Chest"

Posted Monday May 5, 2014 10:30 AM GMT

Kicking off the week with some media duties, Zac Efron and Dave Franco headed over to Rockefeller Plaza for an interview on the “Today” show this morning (May 5).

The “Neighbors” costars had a blast chatting with Matt Lauer, who at one point asked Efron about his Hollywood Reporter interview regarding drug abuse and addiction.

Zac explained, "Actually, it was a weight off my chest. It was great. It was a fantastic time. It was a rough year.”

"It's kind of funny: Neighbors is such a great icing on the cake for all of this. I was able to kind of channel all of that and put it back into this movie. I feel great. I feel really blessed to be here working with this group of group of guys. I couldn't be better right now. I'm really excited,” he added.

Dave also chimed in, “I'm really excited for Zac because I know a lot of people have this preconception of who he is, and once you see this movie, I think his teenybopper image is going to be completely shattered. All these new projects that wouldn't have come to him otherwise are just going to flood towards him."
