Zac Efron opens up about his lie he said in his school days

Zac Efron has recently revealed his biggest lie he kept it a secret for several years.

Speaking to, Efron, who is currently promoting his new movie, Ricky Stanicky, recalled his school days when he wasn’t caught for his lie.


“I remember I was on a school trip in fifth or sixth grade and we went to the zoo,” said Baywatch actor.

Efron mentioned, “There was a sign that said, ‘Do not clap at the monkeys.’ My friends and I noticed it, and the lady goes, ‘Guys, whatever you do, do not draw attention yourselves with these monkeys.’”

The Iron Claw star told the outlet, “The class moved on, and we immediately ran back to the monkey cage and just started clapping.”

“They started throwing poops at us. Poops got everywhere, landed next to a bunch of little kids, and was hitting strollers and things,” he remarked.

Efron pointed out, “It was our fault, but we didn’t tell the teacher that we had done that.”

“Even when the park [staff] came and said that some of their students had caused the monkeys to lose it, we were like, ‘No, It wasn’t me! I didn’t do that, I didn’t clap,’” stated the Hairspray actor.

However, Efron added, “There was dirt everywhere. That one is going to haunt me.”

Meanwhile, Peter Farrelly’s new Amazon Prime Video movie, Ricky Stanicky, which will release on March 7, also features John Cena, Andrew Santino and Jermaine Fowler.
