As Lindsay Lohan prepares to book herself into jail today, her lifestyle serves as a warning for another former teen star — Zac Efron.
“Every time something does happen — and I notice when those things happen — people go through those things and experience that kind of stuff,” Zac told Access Hollywood.
“I take note of it, a mental note — ‘Wow, that didn’t work’ — so, from that point on I sort of look out for that. I kind of adapt.”
Instead Zac hopes to follow the career path of Leonardo DiCaprio, who has developed a serious acting career after years as a teen heartthrob.
“He’s super talented and grounded and focused and that’s everything I want to be in the future,” admits the Charlie St. Cloud star.
“He’s “experience[ed] the good times, the bad times, the scary times and the amazing times and [he’s] still escalating… It gives me some hope… it inspires me to keep going.”
