'Charlie St. Cloud' Star Amanda Crew Explains The Appeal Of Working With Zac Efron

If we were a young actress and had landed the starring role opposite heartthrob Zac Efron in his new movie "Charlie St. Cloud," we imagine we'd shout the news to all our friends and family and brag to anyone within hearing range. And then we'd likely regret it, because everyone and our mom would beg us to come to set and meet Zac.


Not the case with "St. Cloud" co-star Amanda Crew (who we hope you recognize from her scene-stealing role in "She's the Man" with the Amanda Bynes). When asked if she had any friends or family members begging to for a Zac introduction, Amanda said her people were all cool as cucumbers.

"Obviously my friends and family were extremely happy for me," Amanda said of their reaction on hearing her casting news. "But they have always been really respectful of my job and my work place and so I didn’t have any friends trying to suddenly take interest in my job and trying to come on set."

The 24-year-old added that a few of her friends did get to meet Zac, but not because of any special fangirl request, just because he's "a really cool guy."

"He is very down to earth and approachable," Amanda said of her co-star. "I had really good time working with him."

She also revealed that Zac has an additional talent that he shared with her while making the film.

"He can rap," Amanda said. "He can free-style like crazy, he can lay it down. He is actually really really good at rapping."

There you have it, Crush-ers. You really do learn something new every day.

Do you think Zac Efron can really rap? Should he showcase said talent onstage or in a film?
