LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Elizabeth Banks is a Zac Efron fan.
In a column for The Huffington Post, the “Zack and Miri Make a Porno” star admitted to seeing Zac’s “17 Again” because of its well-coiffed star.
“I plunked down my soft-earned money for this flick for one reason: I am a 3?-year-old woman inappropriately lustful for Zac Efron,” she wrote, adding, “He’s charming, makes use of many fingers while ‘twirling a basketball’ (you get it) and looks great with his shirt off… At one point, I drooled.”
And the “High School Musical” star wasn’t the only young man she had her eye on in the film.
“Question: Why didn’t Hunter Parrish also take his shirt off in this flick?” she wrote. But though the actress enjoyed the movie, she wished it had had a more explicit moral.
“The message of the movie seemed to be… knocking up your high school sweetheart is A-OK! Especially if you give up that Syracuse scholarship to marry her! F College!” she wrote.
“I wish this flick had dealt more directly with this little situation,” she continued. “If you are going to have sex, be safe.”
She went on to discuss issues real-life teen parents face – increased poverty, lower education rates – before reassuring readers that the movie was a “great Hollywood story.”
“I really enjoyed this movie, did I say that?” she concluded.
