Zac Efron dumps squeaky-clean image for steamy comedy

London, April 5 (ANI): Zac Efron made his name with kid-friendly movies, but now the Disney prince has dumped his squeaky-clean image to move on to more adult projects.

The High School Musical heartthrob has signed on to star in ‘17 Again’ and has been working out for his topless scenes.

In this film, he tries to bed an older woman and gets propositioned by a string of admirers.

Zac, now 21, said that when he was a teenager he wasn’t good at attracting girls.

“There were lots of girls that I liked that didn’t like me back,” the News of the World quoted him, as saying.

However, in the new film “I could do everything I wanted to at 17 but didn’t get the chance to! I was doing musical theatre in high school and that wasn’t necessarily the coolest thing to be a part of,” the actor added.

Fears over the film’s raunchy content have led UK censors to rate it 12A ahead of its release on Friday.

“The sex references are just too much for a PG film,” a source said. (ANI)
