“My family’s my rock,” Efron said at a Culver City, Calif., press event Tuesday to promote his latest film, That Awkward Moment. “I know they’re not going anywhere. More and more I’ve come to rely on my little brother to keep me grounded. He’s 21 now.”
Efron added of his support system: “I know my family’s always going to be there. And there’s also – as my life changes, sometimes they can’t really be there for you … and I rely on my friends.”
Yes, he gets naked onscreen. And yes, it was awkward.
“There was like a sock thing. It fell off. You just cup your hands,” Efron explained of handling the on-screen nudity. Fans hoping for a hot sneak peek are in luck with a new – and NSFW! – trailer, which shows off his backside and famously buff body.
