Zac Efron hit the Oscars red carpet with his hair perfectly tousled, looking like he had taken some styling cues from Robert Pattinson, a guy known for his bed head. And as it turned out, that wasn’t entirely coincidental, as the “High School Musical” star actually really admires Edward Cullen.
“I woke up with it this way — kinda just ran with it,” he told “Access Hollywood” about the look, adding that he really admires more than just Pattinson’s look, but also the way he’s handled himself and his career in the wake of “Twilight” fever.
“He’s absolutely amazing,” Efron said of the “Twilight” star, who has a new movie, “Remember Me,” opening Friday. “I think he’s making great choices. I think he’s handling it all really well, but you know, he’s a superstar. He really deserves all this.”
And when he wasn’t busy praising the great choices that Pattinson is making in his career, he was discussing the next steps he’s looking to take in his own career, including whether or not he’d like to play Spider-Man . “Are you kidding? It would be a dream come true,” he told MTV News. “I think it would be an honor. I would tear it up.”
Efron revealed that his desire to play Spider-Man isn’t based on the role’s newfound availability, but his status as a lifelong fan of the character. “I’ve been a fan of Spider-Man since the beginning,” he said. “I remember being 6 years old and tearing open that comic book. I couldn’t get enough. It would be a dream.”
