Zac 'uses skateboard to avoid paps'
Zac Efron uses his skateboard to escape the paparazzi, his co-star Augustus Prew has said.
The two made The Death And Life Of Charlie St Cloud together, and Augustus soon realised that High School Musical star Zac was using his skating skills to escape attention.
Augustus, who also appears in The Kid, said: "He's an amazing skateboarder, and actually when we were in Vancouver he went ahead of us on his skateboard because it meant that people couldn't see him. It's his anti-paparazzi mobile."
The two actors got on so well during filming that they even went on double dates together, with Augustus' girlfriend and with Zac's girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens.
"Is that a bit cringe?" Augustus joked.
Zac is sporting a big beard at the moment but said it was not going to be a permanent fixture.
He said: "I'm sure I'll shave it some day. I'm not sure when yet."
