Our favorite barely-clothed boy toy Zac Efron returns to our hearts today in this GIF from his upcoming movie The Paperboy. While the movie looks to be about 50 shades of deep, we’re already putting it on our fall 2012 must-watch list. Because nothing can brighten up a film about a death row prisoner who’s wrongly convicted quite like Zac Efron dancing around naked. Seriously, the movie’s about a reporter returning home to help out a death row inmate.
To quote our very own Jamie Peck in this earlier article about the movie, “The general gist is this: Two brothers (Zac and Matthew McConaughey) use Kidman’s character to get close to a death row inmate (John Cusack) who she’s been sending love letters to.”
The film debuted at Cannes this year to mixed reviews, which isn’t surprising. The people at Cannes are hard to impress. They’re the Regina George of the film scene. Meaning they’ll be nice to your face and burn you in their reviews. Now think of Amber D’Alessio, the girl who made out with a hot dog, that’s the American viewing audience. So don’t worry about what Cannes thinks, you’ll never be good enough to critique films with them anyways.
Also, this film stars fan favorites like Matthew McConaughey’s body and Tom Cruise’s second ex-wife, Nicole Kidman. So you at least know it will be fun to watch. For every topless Matthew McConaughey scene, there has to be one of Nicole Kidman attempting to show an expression on her face.
That’s a Hollywood rule. So quitting worrying about what Cannes thinks and just follow your heart by showing everyone you know this amazing GIF.
