Zac Efron admits that Hairspray co-star Nikki Blonsky is his best friend in an interview with Aussie cinema site YourMovies. Best friends apparently kiss each other on the lips on live TV too!
When asked if their on screen chemistry is a little bit real, Zac answered, “Well, there’s no one better to work with. We honestly became best friends. It’s cool that there’s all these great older actors, but it’s not like were gonna go, “Let’s go hang out with Chris Walken, let’s go to the mall”. [All laugh] You don’t do that. Also, her family was so nice to me, they were like my other parents.
Nikki added, “[We’re] just one big happy Hairspray family.”
Hairspray opens in Aussie theaters on Thursday, Sept. 13.
