High School Musical actor vows to stay away from illegal substances


Zac Efron has been warned off drugs by Leonardo DiCaprio.

The Titanic star, 34, has been sharing his career tips with the High School Musical hunk.

We were talking one day and it was kind of his way-out-the-door, last minute advice, Zac says. ‘Leonardo said, Oh, by the way, if you really want to mess this up, try heroin.

‘I said, Thanks, and he said, No, seriously, thats pretty much the only way youre going to screw this up, and you shouldnt go down that road it will mess you up without fail. Do not do drugs.’

Zac, 21, who is dating Vanessa Hudgens, 20, plans to take heed of the advice.

That was enough for me; thats all I needed to hear, he adds.

Zacs new film 17 Again is out now.
