Zac Efron covers the new issue of Parade Magazine. The Charlie St. Cloud star opened up about what attracted him to the role, high school, Vanessa Hudgens and more. The full interview can be found in the July 25 issue.

On what attracted him to Charlie St. Cloud: "Every once in awhile, you read a script and you get that special feeling in your gut. I was touched by what the character, Charlie, goes through, and I thought it was a story worth sharing. And the fact that I have a little brother myself gave it a lot of resonance."

On how he wakes up: "The first thing I do every morning is cannonball into the pool. It's the best way to wake up."

On growing up singing with the radio: "I still like to sing along with whatever I'm listening to. I just got a pretty good sound system put in, and it's playing on a loop all day. If I don't have music on, I get this weird kind of anxiety. I don't like to be home alone without something playing."

On his biggest expense: "I always have music on. The other day, I found out my biggest expense isn't electricity or gas-it's iTunes. I spend way too much on music, movies, apps, and games. I've got to get that under control."

On girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens: "Vanessa is playing Mimi in Rent at the Hollywood Bowl in August. It's the role of a lifetime for her. The song ';Out Tonight' is Vanessa in a nutshell-she loves to have fun. She's a good partner in crime."

On cliques in high school: "I never noticed them in my own high school. And if there were cliques, I probably intermixed with all of them. I was probably what you'd call a floater. Looking back at that AP stuff now, we probably were the nerds. But that's okay - they're always the coolest people."

Charlie St. Cloud hits theaters on July 30.
