Here’s some news that will make your Friday just that much better: Zac Efron has officially promised to accept the award for Best Shirtless Scene totally topless if he wins this weekend at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards.
Zac initially made the promise last month on Twitter, when he said, “If I beat Thor — I’m accepting the award shirtless on stage.” And now that the deadline is getting closer, he’s assured MTV that he means what he said. “Now I have to,” Zac said. “I’m a man of my word. If I win, I’ll do it.”
Zac’s nominated for going barechested in That Awkward Moment, and he admits looking that good shirtless doesn’t come without a little prep work. When scenes called for him to take off his shirt again in new comedy The Neighbors, he revealed to co-star Seth Rogen the secret behind looking good on screen half naked: Doing push ups right before filming.
“That literally never occurred to me until I was working with Zac,” Seth said. “I saw him doing it, and I was like, ‘Wow! That’s what guys do!’ I do push ups before a scene, I’m just really tired and sweaty.”
Rome wasn’t built in a day, Seth — and neither was Zac’s six pack.
