Zac Efron has been in lots of movies, and he's kissed lots of people.
His kisses on the big screen are many: High School Musical’s Vanessa Hudgens, Taylor Schilling in the 2012 blockbuster The Lucky One and Alexandra Daddario in the 2017 remake of Baywatch to name a few.
During an interview with Norwegian FILMWEBTV for his newest film The Greatest Showman the topic came up.
When asked about how frequently his characters get to kiss on screen, he said:
I'm pretty lucky ... I'm in no contractual obligation to kiss anyone, I just get to kiss a lot of cool people.
And then he declared that, of all the kisses he’s had over the years, his favourite is The Greatest Showman co-star Zendaya.
This might be my favourite kiss ever. The tension between [their characters] is so strong that literally just a glance between them is electric. When they finally have the courage in that moment to finally connect and get that kiss, it's .... really happening," he finished.
Zendaya seemed to be in sync with him:
You're in the moment. When you're into a character, the whole time [her and Efron's characters] are not allowed to as much as talk, speak, have a moment between each other. So every moment is really, really incredibly special. It's not just another kiss - it's a huge thing for these characters. We try to take ourselves and become these two characters, and it's their moment.
