New couple: Zac Efron and Rumer Willis?!?


Both Zac Efron and Rumer Willis ended their seemingly stable relationships last year. Rumer went first, breaking up with WhatsHisFace… um… Micah Alberti in the fall. Then just before Christmas, Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens announced their split too. Now, Rumer was rumored to be rubbing up on Chord Overstreet, the blonde dude on Glee, but it is unknown if they were ever really dating, or if they are still seeing each other. So, seemingly, both Zac and Rumer are single and ready to mingle. And mingle they did, at least according to The Chicago Sun-Times (via Celebuzz, via PopCrunch, etc).

Word on the Curb has it that Zac Efron and Rumer Willis — who both ended long-term relationships in 2010 — brought in the New Year looking “extremely cozy” during a vacation with Rumer’s family at The Parrot Island Resort in Turks & Caicos.

It’s been a busy few weeks for Zac — who is boasting a new buzz cut, in case you hadn’t heard. The stud ended his three-year relationship with fellow High School Musical cutie Vanessa Hudgens and cozied up to his The Lucky Ones co-star Taylor Schilling.

But like a true Hollywood couple, not even this much drama can keep Zanessa apart. Friends believe the bust-up of the Love that Disney Built is only temporary and that Zac and Vanessa’s “bond” could eventually bring them back together.

“They speak every single day … they wanted some free time, but they’ll get back together,” said a (nosy) friend of the couple.

How does Zac Efron know all of these people? He hangs out with Tom Cruise (well, I think Tom probably was trying to seduce him), Zac gets advice from Leonardo DiCaprio, and now Zac is chilling out with the Willis-Moore family? The hell?

But yeah… Rumer and Zac. Ugh. I wish Zac would find someone… I don’t know, more interesting, I guess. I have some affection for the kid (he seems nice and self-aware, and he’s trying, you know), and I think I’d like to see him with one of those cute little hipster actress girls. Like Olivia Thirlby or somebody like that.

    Well, he does need a new beard pronto since he’s not with Nudie-I mean, Vanessa, anymore.

  2. Isa says:

    Another year, another beard.

  3. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    Rebound f*ck

  4. brin says:

    Noooo. Her chin would overpower him. He is too pretty for her.

  5. Jezi says:

    Really????? Ugh!!!

  6. Anti-icon says:

    IF this is true, the $$$ she paid for the leak, or the actual “fauxmance” will be worth it for her non=existant showbiz career. I will say it again. Rumer needs a University Education–away from Calif. As do her siblings.

  7. ctkat1 says:

    Good call on Olivia Thirlby- someone like that would give him a little edge. If Emma Stone were single, she’d be a good upgrade as well.

  8. Rita says:

    I think Zac knows she’s a he. Looks like a guy in a halter top.

  9. caroline says:

    @Isa: lol, well said! having a bad day and you def made me smile.

  10. Kaiser says:

    ctkat1 – Wouldn’t Olivia and Zac be cute together? We should set them up.

  11. mln76 says:

    OK I hate to proclaim Zach’s sexuality because I really have no clue but my one thought was Rumor finally has found a job she can do in Hollywood – Professional Bearding.

  12. LolaBella says:

    I know Zac has been trying to shed that pretty boy image, but that beard he’s sporting in the top pic is hideous! It makes his face look bloated and very doughy.

    I think ending Zanessa(LOL)is part of his plan to cultivate a serious/mature actor persona and move on from his HSM tween audiences.

    I hope this ‘relationship’ is really just a rumor, or could it be that he’s angling for a role in Bruce Willis’ next action movie?

    ETA: Rumer looks so much like Kat Von D. in these pics.

  13. Tess says:

    Seriously, she looks the best I’ve ever seen her look in the third picture.

    He looks pretty damn pleased with himself. Cannot believe he’s really all that into her.

    Reminds me of the recent Kelly Osbourne situation.

  14. Samigirl says:

    Olivia is REALLY cute. That would work. And, like someone above stated, Zac is WAY prettier than her.

  15. cookie says:

    I don’t know, he seems like such a douche. Tries way too hard. His career choices lately have been awful. His ex is very beautiful and will upgrade no doubt.

  16. dread pirate cuervo says:

    I rocked that hair color for pretty much all 4 years of high school, with slight variations as to the pink-, purple-, or red-ness. I cannot for the life of me remember the name of the hair dye even though I can clearly picture the box in my head.

    Anyhoodle, I like to think that Rumer just doesn’t take good pictures & that her chin isn’t so overwhelming in person. & Zac Efron likes the dong, so I hope she’s not bearding him.

  17. Justez says:

    She’s always rumored to be with some rising attractive celeb. Her publicist know’s what they’re doing.

  18. Kiki says:

    If this is true, I feel so let down by him 🙁

  19. bagladey says:

    I can’t handle any more pics of Rumer’s face. The more they try to force that face on me the less attractive it appears and I’m on the verge of declaring Rumer Willis “UGLY”.

    • LOL says:

      Don’t feel you have to declare it…she IS ugly! tiny mouth..Leno chin! pointy nose…only things she has going for her is a good figure and Demi’s eyes..but that doesn’t make her pretty or beautiful! maybe it’s her

  20. pebbles says:

    Come on, Zac! You can do better than Buzz Lightyear!

  21. Str8Shooter says:

    Good Lord! When I saw that first photo I thought it was one of those ‘What if they Mated?’ sketches from Conan O’Brien. I’m thinking….Demi Moore + a giant potato??

    Just sayin!

  22. OtherChris says:

    This is mean, but how on earth did two attractive people produce this child? Her features aren’t even pretty if you look at them separately.

  23. BReed says:

    SHe has very unfortunate looks.

  24. Dany says:

    @ bagladey

    I agree. Imagine her name would be Rosy Stromblowsky or so… no one would consider her as pretty. At least not pretty enough for having an exciting “career” in Hollywood.

  25. Kazoo81 says:

    this is the biggest downgrade i’ve ever seen.

  26. Ron says:

    This totally happens–two attractive people producing a not so attractive spawn. I went to high shcool with twins of very attractive parents. The boy was beautiful and the girl…not so much. I always felt sorry for her because everyone fawned over her brother all the time and just didn’t mention she had lost the lotto. let’s just say Rumer is a handsome gal.

  27. Natalie says:

    please no…..

  28. Vanessa says:

    Based on this news he’s either gay or mentally unstable…


  29. Vanessa says:

    Wait a minute….he was hanging around with her family? Maybe he has a crush on Ashton?

  30. dana says:

    yes…rebound f*ck…you win.

  31. LindaR says:

    It’s a sad day when you look better in a picture in which you are making a goofy face than you do in a picture in which you are not.

  32. Wendy City says:

    That 2nd picture is scary.

  33. mln76 says:

    @Anti-icon as I said in the Kelly Osbourne post these celeb parents need to pay for college or at least a trade school.

  34. PD says:

    @dread: I always used manic panic when I rocked the colours.

  35. mimi says:

    IN THE NAME OF XENU- NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I liked him and Vanessa together! But seriously all Tom Cruise/Scientology jokes aside, I think he and Vanessa will get back together eventually and that the breakup is simply a PR move on his part to break away from his HSM/Zanessa image

  36. anti says:

    i actually like the last photo!

  37. Lola7 says:

    God, she`s ugly. Poor thing.

  38. JenJen says:

    Some pretty boys just like ugly,boring chicks and the ‘fam’ could help advance his stalling career.

  39. wunderkindt says:

    Arent there some corrective facial surgeries available for this very unfortunate girl?

  40. lisa says:

    If he was hanging out with the family. She does have 2 other sisters.. Maybe Zac is interested in one of them..

  41. dit says:

    EWWWWWWW, it’s like beauty and the beast!

  42. TeeTee says:

    I doubt if he’s getting sexual with her, women are not his thing..NOPE!

    she needs to never make a face, cause…


    sorry, my alter ego typed that.

  43. Megatrona says:

    First of all… WHAT!!

    Wunderkidnt : as I have said before in other Rummer posts, her features are not so easy to fix unless she does major surgery

    Now I will go wash my eyes with holy water cause that first picture was too much to handle….

  44. anti says:

    lavender couple?

  45. Kiska says:

    With her hair pulled back it is so many kinds of wrong. She looks like a 300 lb girl with that head!

  46. Lisa Turtle says:

    Zach Efron is sooo pretty… kind of like how Rob Lowe and Brad Pitt were too pretty to pull off “gritty” when they were young. Even Brad Pitt dated Juliet Lewis. I imagine that if this is happening at all, this is Zac’s Juliet Lewis phase.

  47. OMG/WTF!!! says:

    I just saw a pic of a younger bruce willis.
    She DOES look like her father.
    Too bad it’s a good look for a man, but not so much for a woman…

  48. Dee Vine says:

    He’s a cutie but think he tries too hard. His PR team will be working overtime to secure a high profile hookup.

    Professional beard Taylor Swift is back on the market…can you imagine the tween universe will just explode.

  49. Laura says:

    Omg, that thing in the 3rd pic is a CREATURE! No special effects or make-up needed! Jeezussssssss……..

  50. Crash2GO2 says:

    I think that first photo is an especially unflattering pic of her. And who hasn’t had a few of those in their lifetime? A bit unfair to be judging her by I think.

  51. islandwalker says:

    I know that I am seriously in a minority of one but I like that she owns her weird looks. I’m sick to death of everyone looking like plastic dolls. Only thing I don’t like about her is that she thinks she’s doing it on her own and not acknowledging that all of those opening doors are because of mommy and daddy.

    As for Zac… don’t care tho he was very good in hairspray.

  52. Nikki says:

    Uh, by them looking “cozy” they probably meant she was throwing herself at him and he was grossed out, because he’s a cute successful actor, and she’s pretty much a nobody, and an ugly one too. I’m sorry, but she’s a dog. Ugh.

  53. bitchycrap says:

    oh God… she’s like a Boforce

  54. Sheigh says:

    Joke ?
    But who cares ?

  55. tapioca says:

    She’s clearly not photogenic, but if you watch House Bunny she’s kind of pretty, and what’s the alternative – do you really want her to mutilate herself and do a “Heidi Montag”?

  56. Shy says:

    Gosh Zac Efron become so irrelevant taht’s it’s actually funny. Just kind of like Paris Hilton. Prison killed Paris Hilton. Before it she was everywhere. But then she served her time, people enjoined it… and lost interest in Paris completely. And also before that she was the only crazy bad girl. But then Lindsay Lohans crazy fame have started at the same time.

    And now remember how Zac Efron career started? He was no one, just some tv kid like those f-list disney teens. But then he grow that ridiculous hair and started to show up at every event in Hollywood. And become some sort of relevant. And then that High School musical got money and 17 Again was a mediocre success too. And everyone decided that Zac is now a star. And he decided that he is old enough and want’s to be respected actor. And cut the hair that made him famous.

    And become ordinary. And like his idol DiCaprio advised him – he laid down and stopped to show up everywhere. And at the same time those Twilight idiots become teen obsession. And all those little fans that Zac had run to Pattinson.

    But Zac thought that he will now become an actual actor. Because he starred not in musical but in rom com. He is like dramatic now. And then Zac’s movie St.Cloud bombed. So hard. And where is Zac now? He really should start to show up at those events. That is the only way he can be famous and relevant again. Sorry kid< you ain’t no new DiCaprio 🙂

  57. Kaya says:

    I really feel sorry for Rumer, no woman wants to look like Bruce Willis

  58. Lori says:

    Yes, Emma Stone or Olivia Thirbly would be a cooler beard than Rumer.

  59. poopie says:

    The bad hair guy is dating/being bearded by Mr Potato Head? WOW ! two new Disney characters. okay,just for minute, go to fantasyland and picture what THEIR spawn would look like!!!!

  60. Bob Costas says:

    Is that the kid from Mask (Eric Stoltz version)?

  61. Kitsey says:

    Well, she’s waaaay less than pretty in my book, and somehow it’s weird justice that Bruce has a Potato-Head for a daughter, as he is a massive prick. I worked for him, so I know what I’m sayin.

  62. cherryberry says:


  63. Mouse says:

    She’s unusual and unique looking to be sure. I like her figure. I think it’s refreshing to see a girl who doesn’t give in to carving herself up so that she’ll look like a cookie cutter Hollywood prop. Like her bat shit crazy, bonehead mother…
