Zac Efron - Zac Efron: I'm Not A Heartthrob

Zac Efron does not believe he's a ''heartthrob''.

Despite being a pin-up for girls across the globe, the former 'High School Musical' star doesn't see what all the fuss is about.

He told CBS show 'Sunday Morning': ''I can't explain to you what it's like to be a heartthrob, [because] I don't think I am a heartthrob. I hate [that word]. I hate it. It follows you around, but you don't deserve it. It's like, 'Why?'

''I'm just me. I'm just Zac. Just Zac.''

Meanwhile, the 24-year-old actor admits he takes extra care to check his pockets when getting ready after accidentally dropping a packet of condoms on the red carpet at the premiere of 'The Lorax'.

Zac - who is believed to be dating 'Mirror Mirror' actress Lily Collins - told 'The Today Show': ''I never really had a pocket checking policy prior to going onto the red carpet but now I have fully instated one.''

Although he is at least proud to have inadvertently promoted safe sex.

He added: ''It's a great message to add to the many messages of the film.''
