  • I know that Michael Jackson was real hero of yours.

  • You...Did you meet him, or you didn't meet him?

  • No, No...I never. I talked to him on the phone.

  • Yes. How did that happen?

  • Uh...How did that happen...

  • I was in Paris, and I was with Kenny Ortega.

  • We were promoting High School Musical 3.

  • I was probably 20, maybe 21 at the time.

  • And we were at dinner.

  • And somehow I got at the head of the table, and Kenny was on the another side of the table,

  • our director Kenny Ortega.

  • And his phone rang.

  • I remembered I got this look like-

  • "You want this phone call."

  • I was like, "Okay," so I came over and, "What's going on?"

  • He goes," It's Michael Jackson."

  • I am like, "What?"

  • He answered me the phone, and I was like,

  • "Uh...Hello?" And I heard, "Hi, who's this?"

  • I was like, "Hmm...This is Zac Efron. I am a massive fan, and I am an actor. And you're like my hero..."

  • I didn't know what to say.

  • I was like...kind of...I was just at a loss for words, and rambling on.

  • And then he said, "That's really nice. Can you hang the phone back to Kenny?"

  • So, I did.

  • And I was freaking out. I just talked to Michael Jackson. He is my hero. I was tripping.

  • And I set back down, just a little dizzy.

  • All of a sudden, the phone rang again.

  • And Kenny answered. I saw him kind of confused cross the table.

  • And, he like...looked at me again he's like, "You want to get the phone."

  • I was like, "Okay." And he hang the phone to me. He goes, "It's Michael Jackson again."

  • I was like, "What? Okay."

  • And I picked up the phone I was like, "Hello?"

  • He goes, "Oh this is Zac from High School Musical?"

  • And I was like, "Uh...Yeah."

  • And He was like, "Oh, I love what you do. I am a huge fan. I love what you do."

  • And I've lost it. I just lost it.

  • I lost my balance. I think I fell over into the wall.

  • I was like, "You know who I am?"

  • I just started crying. I was a mess. Literally, I was making a fool out of myself.

  • I was like slipped down to the floor pathetically.

  • And professed how much I love him.

  • Like, "You are my hero. You are the reason I do what I do.

  • Thank you so much Michael for everything.

  • Thanks for show me how to dance. How to be...you know...How to believe in myself.

  • How to...I don't know...How to shine.

  • And...that made him cry.

  • Both crying for each other on the phone.

  • And he ended whole the whole phone call conversation with something along the lines of,

  • "Hey Zac." and I was like stop crying for a second.

  • "Isn't it awesome?" and I was like, "What?"

  • And he goes, "Dream really do come true, don't they?"

  • And I was like, "Michael you can't say things like that. You're killing me man. You're killing me."

I know that Michael Jackson was real hero of yours.
