That Awkward Moment, indeed.
Zac Efron was seemingly caught off guard during an interview with Today's Savannah Guthrie on Tuesday, Jan. 21. The actor was joined his costars Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller. "I know last year was a little bit hard. There were reports that you'd gone to rehab. Anything you want to share about that?" she asked. "I think mostly your fans just want to know how you're doing and that you're okay."
The 26-year-old replied, "I'm in the best place I've ever been. I've never been this happy before. I'm extraordinarily grateful for these guys and to be here promoting this movie. I don't know. Things are good. I don't know. Thank you for asking."
Teller joked that the film's title referred to what was happening to them on Today. "Like right now, we didn't prepare for these questions," the 26-year-old movie star quipped. "These aren't the questions we rehearsed."
Efron countered, "We should have been ready for this!"
Jokes aside, Efron said it was a dream working with Jordan and Teller. "These guys are the best young actors I've ever worked with. I'm so excited. There's never really been a movie like this. And all of us are just stoked to get it out there. We're so happy to be in New York. This is where we made the film."
