It’s been nearly 18 years since Zac Efron shot to fame in the “High School Musical” movies. But making the transition from teen star to adult actor is a tough one. Thankfully, Zac had Tom Cruise in his corner when he starred in “New Year’s Eve”! After meeting at a party, Tom generously offered to teach Zac to ride a motorcycle. The next day, Zac showed up to Tom’s mansion and learned to ride. He also went to the movie star for acting advice and got close with Hugh Jackman while shooting “The Greatest Showman.” Sounds like Zac has some pretty impressive mentors in the industry! Maybe someday he can give a younger actor some of his own advice.
