Zac Efron


Zac Efron is feeling the love—and he's spreading it, too!

The actor and his That Awkward Moment costars Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller stopped by Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif., on Tuesday, Jan. 14, to participate in a Q&A for their upcoming comedy. While there, the actor got the opportunity to meet one of his biggest fans.

It wasn't just any meeting, however. Kirby Koo, who works in the company's sales development department, made such an impression on Efron that the 26-year-old movie star decided to write an emotional letter and shared it via Instagram on Wednesday, Jan. 15.

"@Curbiekoo, I have so much more I want to say. And I will—when I find the words. But I'll start here—When you stood up, with such strength, and sincerity and gave me perhaps the nicest compliment I've been meant so much more than that to me," the Neighbors star wrote.

"@Facebook and online media in general, show only half the picture—sure people see me, but I never get to see them," Efron continued. "Yesterday was the first time in a very long time that I was able to look into your eyes and remember why I do what I do—and will never stop. I needed that, more than you will ever know and just wanted to say thanks—face to face soon I hope."

Koo responded to the sweet gesture via her Facebook account. "Zac, I am so incredibly touched by your note," she wrote. "Meeting you was always the dream, but I never could have imagined that you would respond with such genuine kindness and literally open arms. The impact you and your talent have had on me and so many millions of others should never be underestimated. Beyond the actor, thank you for being such a warm, generous person and I'd be humbled to consider you a friend."
