Zac Efron Admits His On-Screen Kiss with Zendaya in The Greatest Showman Was His 'Favorite'

Zac Efron Admits His On-Screen Kiss with Zendaya in The Greatest Showman Was His 'Favorite'
Zac Efron has had his fair share of on-screen kisses, but the one he shared with Zendaya on The Greatest Showman might just top his list.

The two stars play young performers drawn into P.T. Barnum’s world as he sets out to create the greatest circus ever made. Their characters, Philip Carlyle and Anne Wheeler, are also drawn to each other, but work commitments pose interference in their relationship.

When the actors were asked what it was like to lock lips on the film, Zendaya, 21, said every moment between the two characters was “incredibly special.”

Taylor Swift’s 91 Best Lyrics of All Time

Taylor Swift’s 91 Best Lyrics of All Time
Taylor Swift is set to release her sixth studio album, Reputation, on Friday, Nov. 10. And, regardless of your thoughts on the 27-year-old, she’s always had a way with words.

Which is why for months (years, arguably), die-hard fans, gossip lovers and even the media have been anxious to get a true glimpse into Swift’s life over the past three years.

Taylor Swift Drops Heartfelt New Single 'Call It What You Want' -- Listen!

The Grammy-winning artist has always let the music do the talking – it’s one of her greatest strengths. Heck, when she released 1989, she included packs of Polaroid photos in each hard copy – with a handwritten lyric from the album printed on each one. And we’re confident that this album will be no different. We’ve learned so much from the songs she’s already released -- not to mention the caption she left on an Instagram post on Aug. 25 after announcing the album:

How has it already been 10 years since we were introduced to heartthrob Zac Efron?

Efron shot onto the Hollywood scene with his breakthrough performance in the global phenomenon High School Musical in 2006 and his career has been skyrocketing ever since. With his diverse career in film, he has proven himself to be a major triple threat with his incredible singing, dancing and acting.

Not to mention, it seems like the general consensus is that he’s pretty easy to look at as well.

Fallen Trailer Brings the Ya Fantasy Books to Life
The young adult phenomenon Fallen is finally coming to the big screen, with Relativity Media debuting the first trailer for this adaptation. The studio, which has recently emerged from bankruptcy proceedings, hasn't set a release date for this fantasy adventure quite yet, but Relativity's Ryan Kavanaugh asked fans of the franchise in a series of tweets to retweet the trailer, so the company could gauge the response to the first footage. The executive is asking for at least 500,000 retweets, "so we can see how many fans there really are out there."

Based on the worldwide bestselling book series, Fallen is seen through the eyes of Lucinda "Luce" Price (Addison Timlin), a strong-willed seventeen-year-old living a seemingly ordinary life until she is accused of a crime she didn't commit. Sent off to the imposing Sword & Cross reform school, Luce finds herself being courted by two young men to whom she feels oddly connected.

Zac Efron: Joking His Way to Movie Stardom

Zac Efron: Joking His Way to Movie Stardom
A lot of young women — or former young women — may disagree with me, but for a while there Zac Efron came off as a poster boy for the following notion: that it’s possible to be too good-looking to be a movie star. In the “High School Musical” films, of course, he was all mussy-coiffed, aqua-blue-eyed charm — a wholesome hunk who knew how to dance, and when he wasn’t dancing knew how to micromanage his charisma so that it fell right on the cusp between dewy and sexy. He was a classic teen idol — he looked like Sean Cassidy with hair gel — and when you’re sitting on top of that world, surrounded by screaming fans, it always seems, at least within the entertainment industry, like you can conquer anything.

It was all but forgone that Efron would get a crack at movie stardom, and he did, but when

Tumbledown movie review: letting go of the past

A portrait of grief that borrows the conventions of romantic comedies. There may not be a lot of passion here, but there is plenty of pleasant zing. I’m “biast” (pro): love Rebecca Hall

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Rebecca Hall is Hannah, widow of rock star Hunter Miles, who made “a single, nearly perfect album” of soulful acoustic folk before he died suddenly several years back. Jason Sudeikis is Andrew, a university professor who deems Hunter’s work “timeless” and wants to include the singer in the book he’s writing about tragic great American musicians. Hannah is reluctant to help Andrew with his research for lots of reasons: the most important one is the one she is unable to admit to herself, that she does not want to move on with her life. Does her finally agreeing

The Choice (2016) – The Review

2016 is five weeks old, so the new model is rolling off the assembly line. You might think I’m referring to an automobile company like Ford or Lincoln. Well, we are dealing with a brand name, one associated with popular novels instead of cars. Stephen King is still king of the horror/suspense novels, John Grisham has the legal thrillers, and Nicholas Sparks is best known for the swoony, sweeping romance paperbacks that fill the spinner racks at airport gift shops and often protrude from the tops of canvas beach bags. His best sellers quickly grabbed the attention of the movie studios, and almost a dozen have been translated to the big screen (easy to see why since they don’t require costly CGI action set pieces or big name superstars since Sparks is the name that draws ’em in). Back to the assembly line reference, there’s been a

Box Office: 5 Reasons Why 'Dirty Grandpa' Was No Match for 'The Revenant'

Forget it, Jake, it's January.

Like the title neighborhood in the movie "Chinatown," January at the box office is a dark and confusing place where nothing good ever happens.

That's how it played out this weekend, anyway, where the best that three new wide-release movies -- "Dirty Grandpa," "The Boy," and "The 5th Wave" -- could do was battle it out for fourth place with last week's flop "13 Hours" (pictured). And it was nearly a four-way tie, with the three new movies hovering around $11 million and "13 Hours" a tad behind with an estimated $9.8 million.

But even the hit holdover movies, including "The Revenant," "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," and "Ride Along 2," all underperformed this weekend. "Revenant" came out on top, but with an estimated $16.0 million, well below the $20 to $25 million that analysts had predicted for the buzzed-about drama's third weekend of wide release.

Blame it on the weather (thanks,

The Longest Ride review

Britt Robertson and Scott Eastwood star in the latest Nicholas Sparks adaptation to make it to film. Here's our The Longest Ride review.

There are variables in the chemistry of a Nicholas Sparks film, but the basic formula has seldom changed through films like The Notebook, Dear John and The Lucky One. Even the posters for these movies often look indistinguishable from one another, except for the two actors pictured. The Longest Ride is the tenth Sparks adaptation to hit the big screen and though it sticks to what you'll know if you've seen more than one of the others, it's not necessarily a formula that's in need of fixing.

Stop us if this sounds like we've done a find and replace on some other plot summary, but this time we follow Sophia, (Britt Robertson) who's about to start a prestigious internship at a gallery in New York, just as

Read More: Sundance Review: Penis Humor and a Wily Jason Schwartzman Carry Goofy Sex Romp 'The Overnight' It's hard to believe but two years ago Taylor Schilling wasn't a household name, despite roles in Ben Affleck's Oscar winner "Argo," the Zac Efron romance "The Lucky One," and a lead role in "Atlas Shrugged: Part 1." That all changed in 2013 when Netflix debuted their mostly female-led prison dramedy "Orange is the New Black," which quickly went on to become a cultural phenomenon. Schilling has since gone on to net an Emmy nomination and two Golden Globe nominations for her lead work on the show, and, with the show's success, worldwide fame. June is a big month for the actress: Late last week Netflix dropped the third season of "Orange is the New Black," and this Friday sees the release of Patrick Brice's sexy comedy "The Overnight," in which
