Zac Efron: ‘Demi Moore Didn’t Pursue me’

Wednesday, February 8, 2012

ZAC Efron has dodged claims that he was being romantically pursued by Demi Moore.

Demi, 49 — who is currently believed to be receiving treatment for substance abuse and an eating disorder — is said to have wanted to be more than friends with Zac, 24, following the break-down of her five-year marriage to Ashton Kutcher.

But when asked about the rumors, the ‘High School Musical’ star — who is good friends with Demi’s daughter Rumer Willis, 23 — told US TV show Extra: “I don’t know, me and Rumer have been friends for a long time. I know Demi is going through some personal stuff right now. I just wish her well. I hope she’s doing okay.”

However, the singer-and-actor would open up about some of his techniques for wooing the ladies.

He said: “I was a musical theater geek, so whenever we wanted to impress girls, we’d do a three-man jazz quartet. Yeah, we did some pretty fun stuff.”

But despite his unusual methods, Zac is still without a date for Valentine’s Day.

He said: “I might just sit at home … and cry,” before joking that he might “team up” with his ‘The Lorax’ costar Taylor Swift who also plans to spend the day alone.

He quickly added: “Wait a sec, uh, no, we’re really good friends. She’s trying to teach me how to play the guitar.”
