Zac Efron was ‘mortified’ when he was pap’d at a NYC dildo emporium

These are some photos of Zac Efron filming his new movie, Are We Officially Dating? in NYC last week. Zac looks pretty good, right? I mean, I’ve never been on the “I would hit it” train for Efron, but I don’t mind looking at photos of him. The haircut and the scruff is working on him. The film sounds like utter crap, though. According to the photo agency, the film is “about three Manhattan bachelors that make a pact to have as much fun as possible while remaining single.” In other words, a tale of sad, tragic spinsters, amirite? Anyway, while Zac was filming in the city on Wednesday, some of his scenes were set in a sex shop called Fantasy World. Which is fine. Except that the paparazzi got some shots of Zac surrounded by dildos. For real. And now it’s a thing.

Zac Efron was mortified to be caught hanging out at “Fantasy World” sex shop in NYC yesterday – even though he was just filming scenes for his new movie, “Are We Officially Dating.” When he realized a photographer had caught a picture of him surrounded by an array of glowing dildos, Efron immediately halted shooting and rushed out to chase down the pap.

“Zac was begging the guy to delete the pictures,” an eyewitness tells Page Six exclusively. “He kept telling him that he has so many young fans and he didn’t want them to see it.” The photog refused, so his reps were quick to publicize the news that it was simply a scene for the upcoming romantic comedy.

But this isn’t the first time Efron has been caught in a similar situation: Back in 2008 he and then-girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens were photographed shopping for a blow-up sheep sex doll in Los Angeles.

I mean, it’s funny to think that Efron was all in a panic because a photographer caught him in the same frame as (what sounds like) a buffet of glowing dildos. But it seems obvious that yes, his publicist would go around, calling media outlets to ensure that if they ran the photos, they included the important detail that Zac was filming scenes for a movie, and that he does not frequent Dildo Emporiums in his spare, private time. Allegedly! Of course, some outlets are already claiming that in between set-ups at Dildos ‘R Us, Zac did do some browsing and he bought a few special (glowing) items.

LOL – I found the photos! You can see the dildo-tastic one here, at The Mail. I guess that link is NSFW if your office monitors images of neon dildos…? Which reminds me – I love that I have a job where I’m encouraged to look at photos of celebrities with dildos. Seriously. CB pays me for this!!! God bless America.

    Wow he is working that scruff quite well, there’s a wonderful transition from boy to man that happened.

  2. carrie says:

    it was during a filming and to visit a sex-shop never killed anyone

  3. Nashville Girl says:

    As a mom whose daughter loves him, I would prefer she not see pictures of sex shops yet-even in the background. Whether or not that’s his true reasoning, I appreciate it.

  4. T.C. says:

    If he’s filming in the sex shop the dildos are going to show up in the film anyway so why the fuss? Protesting a little too hard over something that should be no big deal. Makes me start believing the gay rumors.I only know a few gay guys and they all have dildos for fun. I say go for it Zack.

  5. Word says:

    Who wants to bet no scene like this will appear in the movie? A movie about young single guys supposedly straight guys in New York? I’m failing to see how a dildo shop is relevant to this situation. Also where are his co-stars? Dude got busted

  6. Kwblue says:

    Wouldnt get on the hit it train?!? Ill take your place.. ALL ABOARD!!!!

  7. Tessa says:

    Weren’t Zac and Vanessa papped in a sex shop while they were dating? I remember thinking at the time that they were undercover pretty kinky, while they had to put on the Disney image.

  8. Dani says:

    Ugh I love him. I work around the area they’re filming but I haven’t caught a glimpse of him yet. Time to stalk!

  9. FirstTimer says:

    He’s beautiful. And I still think he’s better Finnick than the actor they cast. And the dildo pic is just awesome.

  10. Shauna says:

    I think I’m the conductor of the willing to hit it train. That is one fine looking young man.

  11. Sophia says:

    My lord, he’s grown into a beautiful man. I would ;)

  12. Feebee says:

    I really hope those dildos are in the background otherwise they’re a little disappointing,

    I’d suggest he relax about stuff like this but I’m not a young guy in Hollywood trying to carve out a career and fending off gay rumors.

  13. j.eyre says:

    Our Christmas card this year was the family sitting down to a nice buffet of glowing dildos – now I wonder if that was a questionable choice.

  14. KellyinSeattle says:

    I’d be kind of horrified , too…once I went to Lover’s Package and saw my MOM. Still haven’t recovered.
    I love Zac’s coat.

    • j.eyre says:

      Oh my goodness, KellyinSeattle – this may be my favorite thing I read all day. I cannot stop giggling and I mean that in the nicest way possible. I picture my mother in Touch of Romance and would either 1)accidentally start a vibrator which would scare her and cause her to yelp or b) ask what something is and then dissect how inefficient it seemed to be and that money should be spent on jewelry instead.

    I’ve always been on the I-would-hit-it train for Zac Efron. He is going to get better and better with age, I bet.

  16. Lou says:

    He got hot. When did that happen?

    “In other words, a tale of sad, tragic spinsters, amirite?”

    youarerite & I love you.

  18. Peanut says:

    Lol kaiser you crack me up.

    And yes, I’d totally hit that.

  19. K-rock says:

    I’ve been on the “I’d hit that train” since the first time I saw him in HS musical lol. In my wildest dreams *sigh*
