As part of his promotion for 17 Again, Zac Efron answered a series of fan questions, submitted to People, this week.

Among the topics covered by the actors were his typical workouts, his dreams as a kid and his nightlife preferences. Here are a few excerpts from the Q&A:

On his workout routine: I like backpacking, hiking, surfing, swimming, playing tennis – things that get you active and are also fun. If I do go to the gym I usually do circuit training.

On professional as a child: When I was a kid, I wanted to be a professional baseball player, or an astronaut, or be in the X Games. I thought Tony Hawk was the coolest guy alive.

On releasing an album: I’m not going to pretend that I’m a music prodigy. I would want an album to come from me, not from writers or other producers. I definitely don’t possess those skills and right now. I just don’t have the time.

On avoiding clubs: I’m not really into partying. Don’t get me wrong – I’ve gone to a club. But I’d much rather be with my close friends at home or a concert, or on a trip. I’ll go dancing with my grandma. She likes to cut a rug!
