by at . Comments

While in London for the premiere of High School Musical 2, Zac Efron did not answer questions regarding rumors of Vanessa Hudgens nude photos.

But he did discuss his fan base and sexuality, among other items, with UK's Metro:

With a Beard

Is it true that one in three American teenage girls owns a poster of you?
I've read that statistic, but I don't believe it. It's flattering, but surreal.

Is it a scary responsibility? Are you tempted to use your influence for evil?
No, I haven't turned to the dark side. It's not scary, I've got fun fans. They are very energetic and supportive. There are none better.

You've also done Hairspray. What's your favorite musical?
Singing In The Rain. Gene Kelly is a master performer and he's got a sense of charisma I aspire to possess one day. I must have been 14 when I first saw it. I was getting into performing as a hobby and I really looked up to his performance in that film.

What was your favorite subject at school?
English because there was no right answer. With math there's always that one precise answer you have to get. I found that more difficult. I still got an A, though.

How long does it take you to do your hair in the morning?
Thirty seconds â€" it just falls that way. If I've got an event, a lady will put cream in it but other than that it just lays there.

Are you really turning down millions of dollars because you don't want to do High School Musical 3?
No, I don't know where that story came from. It's definitely not true. A third would be a dream come true. It's all about having fun. There's nothing more fun than doing High School Musical.

You seem well balanced. Why haven't you gone mad like fellow former child star Lindsay Lohan?
I don't know. If you stay focused on what you do and have fun doing it then that's your creative outlet. I have so many supportive friends I don't feel the need to go to clubs and places to look for it.

Zanessa: So in love. So talented. So hot.

Celebrity gossip bloggers have been speculating about your sexuality. How do you deal with that?
Again, I simply ignore it. I'm just going to continue being myself. I'm not going to let every blogger's opinions get to me.

Our opinion is that Zac seems like a nice enough guy. But we think co-star Corbin Bleu deserves a bit more attention.

Zac Efron Quotes

Everything's been stepped up a few notches, all the dances, and I think the songs are pretty catchy this time around. And it's our senior year, so we've got graduation and prom to look forward to. All fun things to have in a movie.

Zac Efron [on High School Musical 3]

You never know with teenage girls. It's funny. But they're always, most of the time they're pretty respectful, and I love 'em. I'm very grateful.
