Actor Zac Efron doesn’t mind fans approaching him when he’s off-duty – because his fame has afforded the actor “so much”.
The 22 year old has gained a loyal following since shooting to fame at the beginning of the High School Musical franchise when he was still a teenager.

He’s constantly tailed by photographers hoping to catch a snap of the star and his girlfriend, Vanessa Hudgens.

But although Efron admits he would sometimes love to be anonymous, he is fine with being recognized – because there are so many upsides to fame.

He tells the BBC, “Yeah, you have that thought (to be anonymous) every once in a while.

“I’d probably do the simplest things – it’s the small things you miss that you can’t do. When you take a look at the big picture, which I remind myself to do as much as possible, you just remember this (fame) has afforded me so much.

“I’ve got so much out of this, so the small things I can do without for a whole – there’s a big upside.”
