Leo Sits Zac Down For a Heartthrob-to-Heartthrob Talk About Heroin Use
When Zac Efron and Leonardo DiCaprio were spotted sitting together at a Lakers game in November, the conversation between the teen idol torch passers was the subject of intense speculation. Might Leo be doling out advice on film roles? Tabloid scrutiny? Acquiring model girlfriends directly through their talent bookers? None of the above, Efron has now revealed. They were talking about drugs.
Dished a surprisingly candid Efron to GQ:
"He said, 'There's one way that you can really f--- this all up. Just do heroin. If you steer clear of that - the other obstacles you'll be able to navigate.' And that makes sense, dude."
Indeed it does, bro, and how kind of Efron to nod patiently, attempting to scope out the game going on behind DiCaprio's ballcap while the Titanic star growled, "And if you black out after a night at Hyde and find yourself in an abandoned boxcar where a hobo offers you twenty dollars to beat him up, you tell him no. That kind of shit almost cost me Man in the Iron Mask."
