The First Photo of Zac Efron Dressed as Ted Bundy Will Make You Feel Conflicted


If you’re like me, then thinking about Zac Efron generally fills you with the warm and fuzzies — those abs and that jawline, right? That’s why it pains me to say that those halcyon days of thirsting for Efron are over now that the actor has shared the first photo of his transformation into serial killer Ted Bundy for the film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. Or should I say, the days of guiltlessly thirsting for him are over, since getting all hot and bothered by him in character as a murderer is . . . well . . . you know what? Let’s just move on.

The news that Efron is starring in a movie about Bundy’s life was announced in 2017, and surprisingly, it’s not the first time a Disney star has taken on a role this dark. Just last year Teen Beach Movie‘s Ross Lynch starred in My Friend Dahmer, the chilling origin story of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer. Like Lynch, it looks like Efron is fully committing to the role, which will see him portraying Bundy, who was connected to at least 36 horrific murders. The story will be told through the eyes of Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer (Lily Collins), and judging from the picture Efron shared on Twitter, it’s clear he’s already channeling Bundy’s trademark charisma:

The black and white image doesn’t reveal too much detail, other than that it’s a recreation of Bundy’s 1975 mugshot. Regardless, it’s safe to say playing one of America’s most prolific serial killers will be a big departure for the actor, who most recently appeared in circus musical The Greatest Showman and Baywatch.

“Ted Bundy is going to be a challenge,” he recently told Buzzfeed. “I think it’s going to be different and it’s going to be fun. I’m super stoked.”

In addition to Efron and Collins, the Joe Berlinger-directed film also stars John Malkovich as Judge Edward Cowart, who handled Bundy’s televised trial and sentenced him to the death penalty. Hopefully the cast will share a few more sneak peaks as production gets into gear.

Dylan Farrow on Woody Allen: 'Why shouldn't I feel some sort of outrage?'

CBS released the first clip from Dylan Farrow’s interview with CBS This Morning‘s Gayle King, during which they discussed Farrow’s allegations against her adopted father, Woody Allen. Farrow accused the Wonder Wheel director of molesting her when she was a child in 1992, a claim he has long denied.

“Someone said this to me, ‘She wants to bring Woody Allen down. She’s caught up in the Me Too, Time’s Up movement and this is really what she’s trying to do, is bring him down,’” King tells Farrow in the clip.

“Why shouldn’t I want to bring him down?” she responds. “Why shouldn’t I be angry? Why shouldn’t I be hurt? Why shouldn’t I feel some sort of outrage that after all these years being ignored and disbelieved and tossed aside?”

This marks Farrow’s first television interview to discuss the allegations against Allen. Representatives for the writer-director declined to comment on Wednesday.

“I have long maintained that when I was seven years old, Woody Allen led me into an attic, away from the babysitters who had been instructed never to leave me alone with him. He then sexually assaulted me,” Farrow wrote in a 2017 op-ed published in The Los Angeles Times. Allen has never been convicted of a crime.

At the time meant as his “final word on this entire matter,” Allen wrote in a 2014 piece in The New York Times, “Of course, I did not molest Dylan.” Following the publication of Farrow’s op-ed, a spokesperson for Allen said in a statement, “Dylan Farrow’s allegations against Woody Allen, which she first made 25 years ago, have been thoroughly examined by law enforcement officials and child welfare investigators. The investigators concluded unambiguously that Dylan Farrow was not sexually abused. No charges were ever filed, and the reason is simple: because Woody Allen is innocent.”

When King asked Farrow why people should believe her now, she replied, “I suppose that’s on them, but all I can do is speak my truth and hope… hope that somebody will believe me instead of just hearing.”

In light of the accusations against Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, and other men in Hollywood, Farrow called out prominent actors who have worked with Allen in the past for not condemning the director over her allegations. Since then, Greta GerwigMira SorvinoRebecca HallDavid Krumholtz, and Ellen Page have expressed regret for working with Allen.

HallTimothée Chalamet, and The Tick star Griffin Newman also pledged their salaries from Allen’s A Rainy Day In New York to various organizations, including the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund.

King’s full interview with Farrow will air Thursday during CBS This Morning, which runs from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. ET/PT.

Rob Kardashian Doesn’t Feel Sorry For Blac Chyna’s Crappy Love Life: She Only Has Herself To Blame

Rob Kardashian has no sympathy for his ex Blac Chyna’s difficulties with finding a good man and he thinks it’s a reflection of her own decisions. Get the EXCLUSIVE details here!

Blac Chyna, 29,  hasn’t had the best of luck with her love life among the media circus since her split from Rob Kardashian, 30, but Rob is not taking the blame or letting it bother him. In fact, he thinks it’s Chyna’s own fault! “Rob honestly doesn’t feel he’s stuck in the middle of anything,” a source close to Rob EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com. “Chyna is the only one who has been keeping this entire charade going in the media and he think it’s hilarious that Blac thinks his family has had anything to do with her dating life. I mean, Chyna has been in a few relationships since she and Rob have split and if anything, he feels that dudes are finally seeing Chyna for who she really is and they don’t want anything to do with her. Everything that has supposedly happened to Chyna has been done on her own accord and she should have known exactly what could happen if she came after their family.” Eek! This sounds kind of harsh but it’s definitely not surprising considering the issues these two have had in the past year. Check out pics of Rob and Chyna’s rocky relationship here!

Despite Rob’s strong feelings about Chyna, he’s been out of the spotlight since all the drama that erupted over social media and has seemed to keep things under control, especially with the former couple’s 1-year-old daughter, Dream. “Rob has done everything he’s been directed to remain a great co-parent to Dream and although he would never wish any negative energy on the mother of his daughter, he thinks the people are speaking for him when people aren’t willing to put up with her games,” the source continued.

Rob’s strong feelings about his ex match up with Chyna’s feelings about him and the Kardashians. She recently made headlines when she blamed the family‘s bad portrayal of her in the media as the reason her reality show with Rob was cancelled and has stated that it could affect her ability to make money in the future. The family struck back by not only disagreeing, but also claiming that Chyna wasn’t the best mother to Dream and often left her at home under someone else’s care while going out to party. Yikes! We hope these two can get things sorted soon!

Mwbuzzers, what do you think about Rob’s thoughts on Chyna? Tell us here!

Gregg Sulkin Wants A ‘Wizards Of Waverly Place’ Reunion: Does Selena Gomez Feel The Same?

OMG! Gregg Sulkin just revealed that he totally wants the gang that created ‘Wizards of Waverly Place’ to get back together! Does Selena Gomez agree?!

Would you like to see Wizards of Waverly Place have some kind of reunion?! You are not alone! Gregg Sulkin, 25, just shared that he’s totally on board to revisit the magical world! “I mean, that show gave me my start here, so I’ll always be grateful, and I’ll always want to do a reunion,” he told Entertainment Tonight. But, he went on to add that, “it’s gotta make sense on a career level for every single person involved.” Is he hinting that his former co-star Selena Gomez, 25, might not be able to join the rest of the cast now that she’s a superstar? Head here for loads more images of the hunky TV star!

He also went on to drop some incredibly sweet compliments on the pop songstress and her runaway success! “I’m happy it’s happened to a nice person, because a lot of people in this industry, you seem a certain way, and maybe aren’t,” he added. “But she’s always been really lovely, has always been very determined, hard-working, and if you type in like, ‘Selena Gomez scandal,’ on Google, you’ll never find one.” So true!

Although a ‘Wizards’ reunion sounds far fetched considering just now busy Sel is these days, the TV landscape is completely packed with old shows that are getting a second chance like Fuller House, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and loads more! So, as Selena’s on-again, off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber, 23, would say, “Never say never!”

Mwbuzzers, what do YOU think? Are you dying to see a Wizards reunion too?! Think Selena would be interested?! Share your thoughts and reactions in the comments section below!

‘American Idol’s Katy Perry: I Feel A ‘Responsibility’ To Be As ‘Authentic’ As Possible

While speaking EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife at the TCAs, Katy Perry explained why she feels a responsibility to be as authentic as possible in today’s world.


Katy Perry, 33, wants everyone watching her on American Idol to remember that she is just a human. In fact, when HollywoodLife asked Katy if she feels any pressure to be a role model in today’s world, she told us: “It’s not pressure. I don’t think the right word is pressure. Definitely a responsibility. I think I always preface everything I do with an asterisk of, ‘Hi, remember, I’m human and I will probably let you down.’” This coming from a woman who is not just the newest judge on American Idol, but also a singer, an artist and a business woman. Those are a lot of different hats to wear, and Katy sure wears them well!

During our chat with Katy at a cocktail party for American Idol during the Television Critics Association on Monday, January 8, she also shared that she’s proud to be a story teller that inspires hope and happiness in people. “And also I’m in the business of rock ‘n roll which is not like, in any way, a politician figure, so just remember rock ‘n roll is based on rebellion,” Katy told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “But I’ve learned a lot along the way and I just want — you know, my job is just to be a story teller with all the information that I’ve absorbed and to help people feel really wonderful feelings. Sometimes I like to try and be cool and that doesn’t really work for me. People just want me to be authentic and that’s all I want to be, too. I’m proud to be that girl that wrote ‘Roar’ and proud to be that girl that wrote ‘Firework’ and proud that those songs are little keys that unlock this human soul and connect people.” She closed with, “I’m gonna be trying to lift people up out of their situations for the rest of my life I think.”

We can’t wait to watch Katy show off that rebellious authenticity she prides herself on when American Idol premieres on ABC on March 11!

Tell us, Mwbuzzers — What do YOU think about Katy’s mission to remain authentic? Comment below, let us know!

Gwyneth Paltrow And Brad Falchuk Finally Confirm Their Engagement: ‘We Feel Incredibly Lucky’

Congratulations to Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk! The couple finally confirmed that they’re engaged after months of speculation. Read their sweet statement here!

It’s about time they said something! Rumors swirled in November 2017 that Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk were getting married, but the couple never commented on it. Well, it took two months, but Brad and Gwyneth have now confirmed the happy news. “We feel incredibly lucky to have come together at this juncture in our lives, when our collective successes and failures can serve as building blocks for a healthy and happy relationship,” the couple said in a statement to Good Morning America.

Yay! Brad and Gwyneth have been together for over three years. The twosome actually met on the set of Glee in 2010. Brad is the show’s co-creator (along with Ryan Murphy), and you may remember that Gwyneth had a recurring role as the eccentric teacher Holly Holiday. However, they didn’t start dating until 2014, over a year after her divorce from Coldplay frontman Chris Martin. Brad got a divorce from his wife in 2013.

Mwbuzzers, are you excited that Gwyneth and Brad are officially engaged? Let us know!

Selena Gomez Proudly Declares ‘I Feel Love’ After Reuniting With Justin Bieber

Together forever! Justin Beiber and Selena Gomez have reunited and she’s so happy over it that she wore an ‘I Feel Love’ shirt to celebrate. See the pic here!

All is well in the world of love for Justin Bieber, 23, and Selena Gomez, 25. Selena showed us just how happy she is by flaunting a black Givenchy, “I Feel Love” shirt on Jan. 3. Could this be a message about her rekindled relationship with Justin? We think so! The singer looked as cute as ever with a relaxed ponytail, minimal makeup and black sweatpants. We love her casual style! Unfortunately for us, the chic top is now sold out!

The message on the shirt also serves as reassurance for Beliebers. Many fans questioned Jelena’s relationship after they were reportedly spotted arguing at the San Diego airport on Jan. 2. The couple had just returned from a relaxing vacation in Cabo, Mexico, when they were seen allegedly arguing over not spending enough time together while away. Aww!  We guess that’s the best kind of argument to have, right? The trip to Cabo marked their first New Year’s Eve together since getting back together. The trip was extremely romantic as Justin and Selena brought in 2018 by watching fireworks on the ocean. How cute! After Cabo, Justin jetted off to Utah for an all guys ski trip, Jan. 4.

Justin enjoyed snowboarding with his buddies, and spent time with a few lucky fans. It seems only right that Justin and Selena give each other space. Hitting the slopes seems like a perfect way to get over an argument to us! We think it’s smart that Justin and Selena are taking things as slow as possible. After all, distance makes the heart grow fonder.

Mwbuzzers, what do you think of Selena Gomez’s “I Feel Love” shirt? Let us know your thoughts below!
