The Junket: Taylor Swift, Zac Efron and Betty White On Flirting and Grand Romantic Gestures
Betty told us Zac never calls her, however, Zac says their budding romance is stifled because Betty can't send text messages. "I've been trying, she won't return my phone calls," he said. "She's not that good with texting." In any case, Betty reveals she's too busy with George Clooney to make time to see Zac, to which Zac responds, calling George an a**hole.
Switching gears, because that was getting awkward, we wanted to talk to Taylor and Zac, who play Audrey and Ted in the movie, about what grand gestures they would do or have had done to them from a guy/girl. In the film, Ted is in love with his next door neighbor, Audrey and goes on a quest to find her the thing she wants most in the world, which happens to be a living tree because in the future, all the trees have been chopped down and replaced with artificial, less-messy versions.
"When you think about what a guy would do for a girl, it's a really sweet concept because I don't think I've really ever had a guy do anything grand like that," Taylor told us. I can't think of anything. So I guess that's good for the future... keep the bar really low."
Any guys out there that are looking to do that for Taylor, Zac has some advice on what's worked for him.
"If I'm going to do something for a girl, I like to do something that's from the heart, whether it's writing or art... something that comes from you."
The Lorax is in theaters March 2.
