Ah, the pitfalls of being young, hot, and famous.
Zac Efron’s family, including his mother, Starla, accompanied the sexy star to the New York City Cinema Society screening of his new movie The Lucky One on Thursday, April 19.
Sounds like a fun outing, right?
Well, not if your mom is about to watch you strip down and get hot-’n’-heavy in what is essentially a feature-length string of love scenes — on a very big screen.
The actor dished to People, "We saw the film together and I was kind of squirming. Even though she was a couple of seats down from me, I tried to duck out during those scenes because it was too embarrassing. Obviously I'm acting, but knowing that my mom and my family were watching is kind of awkward."
But at the end of the day, Zac explains, "She was just laughing about it in a good way. [...] My mom is my biggest supporter."
He’s the lucky one.
