London, March 17 (IANS) American actor and singer Zac Efron is highly impressed by Australian heartthrob Hugh Jackman’s talent and wants to do a movie with him.
Efron, who was in Melbourne for a flying visit last weekend, joined Jackman in a song and dance routine at last month’s Oscars.

“When I heard I was going to be on stage with Hugh, I was shocked. I was like, I can’t keep up with that guy,” Efron said in a release.

“Not only is he a better singer and dancer, he’s six foot three or four. He’s the tallest guy I’ve ever seen that co-ordinated,” he added.

Zac has become one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars thanks to his roles in the “High School Musical” trilogy and “Hairspray”.

But the heartthrob said he looked up to Jackman, 40, as a role model: “I aspire to be where he’s at some day, to have that drive.”

Jackman, voted this year as the Sexiest Man alive will be seen soon in the latest X-Men film “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”.
