Something that puts a big big twist on it you probably didn’t see coming.
Zac Efron reveals Leonardo DiCaprio cooked him breakfast and gave him life advice
Leonardo DiCaprio knows a thing or two about being catapulted into fame as a teenage heartthrob, and it turns out he’s taken another celebrity in the same boat under his wing.
In a new interview with Hot Ones, Efron explained over spicy chicken wings that DiCaprio once invited him for a breakfast date and checked in on the star.
Years ago, you may recall that Efron and DiCaprio (known as LDC to his friends) were seen chatting courtside at a Lakers Game in 2008. At the time, Efron was at the height of his Disney stardom with the final High School Musical film released the same year.
Efron, who explained that they “weren’t talking at that point”, revealed that DiCaprio cleverly managed to sneak him a breakfast invitation away from the cameras.
Efron said, “What’s really cool about that night, and this really sticks in my mind, we weren’t talking at that point and then I was just kind of going to wait for him.”
“Sure enough, he had his hat down low, and when the ball went to the other side [of the court], he said, ‘Hey man, do you want to go get breakfast tomorrow?’” he continued.
“I was like, ‘Yeah dude,’ and he wrote his phone number down and then handed it to me while the other team was scoring and nobody saw,” Efron said.
As for where the pair went? “I took [the invite] and he cooked me breakfast the next day at his house,” Efron revealed.
If you’re wondering what DiCaprio’s girlfriend Camila Morrone can expect when she wakes up in the morning, it’s a little underwhelming.
Efron explained that DiCaprio “cooked waffles and burnt those so then he made pancakes.”
From there, Efron revealed he wound up asking the veteran actor “a billion questions”.
He said, “It was awesome. I had a billion questions for him at that point, [I was] definitely dealing with too much paparazzi presence in my life. And sitting next to Leo, I was just like, ‘How have you handled this for so long?’ – Source
