Hollywood heartthrob Zac Efron has made it to Time Magazine’s ‘World's Most Influential People’s list. Efron, who rose to stardom with Disney's ‘High School Musical’ film, has joined the likes of Barack Obama, George Clooney, Oprah Winfrey and Brad Pitt in magazine''s annual list of the top 100 influential figures.
And Efron's Me And Orson Welles co-star Claire Danes admits that he deserves the honour. "(Working with Zac) I couldn't help being reminded of the time I had spent with another gifted idol, Leonardo DiCaprio, about a decade before,” Contactmusic quoted Danes as telling the mag.
“I saw the simmering ardour of the teenage masses turn into unbridled hysteria after Titanic was released. But this was even more intense. “The difference, I realised, was that Zac is not only an actor but also a musician, a bona fide song-and-dance man. We ladies are defenceless against such a combination,” she added.
