Efron Gutted To Miss Out On University

Hollywood heart-throb ZAC EFRON almost turned his back on acting - because he was desperate to follow his friends to university.
Efron shot to international stardom with a starring role in Disney franchise High School Musical in 2006, and is now one of the most in demand actors in Hollywood.
Efron admits he initially planned to quit acting after his first few film roles to take up a place at the University of Southern California, before deciding to continue his successful movie career.
He says, "My life was set, I was going to go to college, I was going to try to do something great, like be a doctor. It didn't really work out. I decided after I had done High School Musical and after I had done a couple of films that I wanted to go to college to study films.
"I had friends in the programme and they just raved about it. I was so jealous that they were there. After I was accepted to go, I was deferred for one year and since then, I haven't really had time to go back."
