Zac Efron has said that rumours surrounding his sexuality don’t bother him because he sees nothing wrong with being gay.
The handsome actor, who dated ‘High School Musical’ co-star Vanessa Hudgens for many years, told The Advocate that he has a lot of love for his adoring gay fanbase.
He said: “It’s very flattering. After ‘High School Musical’ and ‘Hairspray’. I’ve always felt embraced by the gay community, and I feel incredibly grateful.
“I don’t like to live in fear about things like rumours and backlash to begin with – that’s the way I was raised – but I just can’t see what’s so wrong about being gay.”
Efron also supports gay marriage, because he believes it is important all people who are around him are allowed to be happy.
“It’s an issue that affects so many people in my life — a lot of my close friends and some of the most influential people around me. I just want them all to be happy. It would make me so happy to see them able to live their lives and do what they want to do.”
